This is our second time staying at Kauai Shores and we love it. When you first drive in and get a view of the back of the property you might think it's is a little old or out of step with the times. After all it's only two stories and looks kind of small but it's perfect. The paint is new and the colours are bright cheerful and give an excellent vibe. The yard and pool are well maintained and rooms on the first floor allow you to walk right out. This made it very easy to meet others, and on both our trips we found other Canadians on vacation and ended up spending the evening in the Lava Lava Beach Club (LLBC). The LLBC is a such a gem. Seriously this spot has great food and drinks and awesome happy hour specials. Come back in the morning for some spectacular sunrises. The rooms are small but well furnished and the bed was quite comfortable (I am super picky on the beds so that is saying something). The staff are very friendly and because this is a smaller place they recognize you and say, " hello" with a look of recognition. This time we used the concierge which was a smart idea on our part. We got great advice and saved a lot on the ATV ride we went on. We would definitely use the concierge again. Final note, we are already looking at booking again for April.

Room tip: get anything facing the garden or pool.

We found this hotel by mistake but what a great find. Close to the Coconut Grove plaza for shopping and grabbing a quick bite to eat. The hotel is right on the water and have a wonderful restaurant / bar on the grounds. It was easy to walk into town or grab one of the free bikes the hotel provide for their guest.
The staff was great, friendly and helpfully when they could be. Even with a hurricane on the way the hotel did everything they could to get the hotel, staff and their guest ready in case of emergency. I am going to keep this hotel on my list and will be back to enjoy the sun sand and surf!

Loved this property! For us it had all the amenities to enjoy a week. The best feature in my opinion is Lava Lava Club. Great food! Generous drinks! Those mai tais can’t be beat best on the island! Great vibe. Most important, right on the sand! We enjoyed breakfast looking out to the water right on the sand each morning. Dinner also fabulous. We purchased our helicopter tour with the concierge, very helpful and knowledgeable about the tour we just purchased...best experience of my life a must do!! Kauai Shores is an older property but well kept, friendly staff. Great location! I lost count how many photos I took of the property I just felt right at home, will return on our next visit. Mahalo Kauai Shores!

Hotels are expensive on Kauai. That’s why this place is a good option. It’s priced competitively but is not extreme. It is a bit older? Yep. Are you getting what you pay for? To an extent but it is decent value.

Pros: right on beach, friendly staff, great location, free parking, clean.

Cons: the comments on the water pressure/temperature issues are accurate. We had problems with our air conditioner. No counter space in bathroom. LLBC staff are not friendly to hotel guests (got mad at us when we sat at a table without consulting the hostess stand).

But, I can’t fault the hotel for the restaurants staff. The hotel staff were all very nice and friendly and helpful.
