OK the furnishings are a bit dated but the kitchen has been updated ,the bathroom is fine and lots of things in the hall closet including fans,extra towels etc. there is a place to store your fins and snorkeling gear. we were on the first floor with a lanai and had a partial Oceanview. Unfortunately our one-bedroom backed to the...

The Beach resort is a good place stay if don't want to spend lots of money. You buy your own food at Costco or any market for food in Kauai Hawaii. I restaurant there ca be pretty pricey. You can still have fun in Kauai without spending outs of money. This resort has great bed room and living room that...

We got out of our car, walked into the condo (of which a worker walked out of the moment we went to open the door) dialed the Hyatt and left. The Lawai offering was dark, dank and smelled of curry and cigarettes. The jalousie windows in the master bedroom (and I use that term loosely here) looked right out onto...

My wife and I did a timeshare exchange to stay at this resort for a week and we had a wonderful time. We have stayed at some pretty upscale resorts in Mexico so when we first arrived at our room, on the top floor of the Coral building, we were a little taken back as the room décor seemed just...

Since 2005, I have been fortunate to visit here. It is simply a wonderful resort. Our apartment has one bedroom, living room, bath and full kitchen. Two-bedrooms are available. It is located on the beach with stunning ocean views. We count whales off our lanai (Hawaiian for balcony). Although it is an older facility, it has been scrupulously maintained and...

We had an amazing time here! The staff were wonderful and helpful, and always with a smile! We stayed in a top floor Coral room (Room 3406). From the reviews, I wasnt expecting much of a view, but the top floor had a spectacular view of sunsets and the ocean. There was some obstruction with electrical lines, and the Beach...

We stayed in one of the Banyan units, waking each morning to the surf (and the roosters). Ground floor, just steps from the beach. From here we investigated the entire island, renewed our vows on Shipwreck Beach before taking in an outdoor luau. There is truly no better location on the South Shore at such a strong value.

Recently remodelled, very good location. With three pools it never seemed crowded. Everything is kept very clean. The only downside is the mattresses. could use upgrading. Lots of outdoor areas for guests to use.

You couldn't ask for a better location than this! Directly across from the best snorkeling in Poipu and in my opinion one of the best restaurants, the Beach House, Lawai Beach Resort has it all. Three beautiful pools and a great parking structure so that you never have to search for somewhere to park on the busy beach road. Be...
