Most people would agree, a 5-day trip to Kauai from the mainland is not enough time to really wind down from work and enjoy, but it's what we had. My husband and I wanted to celebrate a special birthday in a special way and we took advantage of a package offer to experience Kauai again; not our first time there, but our first at this hotel. We experienced breakfasts, lunch and dinners in the on-site restaurant and lounge, and all were excellent quality. The table wait service was a 9 on a scale of 10, and the hotel staff quickly took care of a minor room issue. The courtyard is well laid out with pool, spa, elegant 'fire pit' area, nearby bar/grill, and lots of seating areas on and near the beach to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or tea. In addition to your little coffee maker in the room, free coffee and hot tea were supplied in the small market area by the front lobby. The hotel is right on the beach south of Kapaa, just north of the Coconut Marketplace shops (some were closed due to the economy, but many were open and we snagged a few bargains and a beautiful Bamboo Cay Christmas-theme Hawaiian shirt for my husband to wear this holiday). A sandy, surf-side walking path goes from the Wailua River bay south of this hotel to just north of it, allowing tourists and locals alike to get a short walk in before breakfast, or an evening stroll. Many rooms have ocean views; if possible, ask for one of the ocean-facing rooms at the end of the halls to get the full effect.
Very close to this Marriott Courtyard is a 'Foodland' for all your little needs once you get there. There are also several other restaurants in the area within short driving distance within Kapaa if you don't want to eat on-site the whole time.
Only areas we experienced that needed work were the slightly overworked check-in staff who most times had a small line that kept you waiting, and the spa maintenance, which was down for part of our stay. I would definitely consider going back again with all the positives this location offered for the $.
