Luxury in Paradise
This is a very nice hotel! Everything you could want and more! The property is beautiful with lush flowers and plants. A huge pool, and a very nice beach. Also a few nice places to eat on the property as well. The service is excellent, the rooms very nice and roomy, and the view is beautiful. The pool is the largest on the island. The view from the ocean view and garden view are beautiful. Wonderful places to eat on site. The grounds are beautiful and lush! Has it's own beach!
If you like the ritzy resort experiences when you travel...this will be a great experience. It is an excellent location...and there is so much to do and see just on the resort itself...it's gorgeous. The restaurants were great...and the environment was completely relaxing and first class.
We had stayed in the Waimea Plantation Cottages for the rest of the time, which was completely different...it's just what you're looking for...
I think Kauai is the best of the islands...so you can't wrong anywhere...
Largest swimming pool on the island. Grounds are kept beautiful with flowers, trees, birds, and the pond filled with fish and ducks.
Largest pool in Hawaii. Hotel and grounds are as tropical as you can expect with hawaiian music piped throughout the resort.

Stayed here 3 night 3/04. Loved the Kauai Marriott. The resort is beautiful. Their pool is the largest on the island and absolutely gorgeous (cold though which is harder to deal with in March, than it probably would be when it gets even warmer out). The breakfast buffet is delicious, especially sitting there in the open air close by the pool. We had all 3 dinners at Duke's Barefoot Bar. Great steaks for a very reasonable price. (Upstairs Duke's much fancier and more expensive. The only shortcoming is that it is located on a small bay, rather than the wide open ocean, but that is the way Kauai folks want it (leaving beaches all open. Loved the whole island - much more subdued than Oahu's Waikiki Beach. We were celebrating our 25th, but the younger crowd may not be as enthusuastic about the Marriott, as it is very quiet and laid back. The bars are even quiet and not many folks walking around the resort in the evening. (we enjoyed the late night strolls and the solitude). Will definitely return.
Wow, for lack of a better word! My husband and I stayed at the Kauai Marriott in Lihue from Feb 23-28. We couldn't have made a better choice. Originally we had booked at the Kauai Sheraton, but after reading many reviews regarding the "garden wing"(which we had booked), we decided to cancel. When I called to cancel, they asked me for a reason. I was honest with them and told them I had read too many bad reviews about their "garden wing" and I was very worried about staying there. She wasn't concerned in the least. We loved the Marriott. Our room was lovely. We got an upgrade to a partial ocean view upon check-in. The bed in our room, and I am sure all the rooms must have the same type, was to die for! I called the front desk to inquire about the manufacturer. I was told it is a company by the name of Jameson. (did a Google search when I got home and found it). I have never know comfort like this! We always thought we loved our bed here at home, but once you sleep at the Kauai Marriott,nothing is as good! The pool here is gorgeous. The entire pool is 4ft. deep. The entire pool area is awesome. Kauai is packed with things to discover. We had the Kauai Revealed book and never closed it! We didn't eat at the hotel, because we were too busy eating at places in the book! Duane's Ono Charburgers, just north of Kapaa, is a must. Splurge and have a Marionberry shake with a burger. The Ono Family restuarant in Kapaa is great for breakfast! Try any of their eggs Benedict varieties. Roosters and chickens are everywhere running loose on Kauai! We found out why. The story is: In 1992 when hurricane Inikiki(sp) hit, all of the coops were damaged and opened. The chickens and roosters ran free, and have no doubt multiplied ever since! They are actually very amusing and colorful. Waimea Canyon is beautiful. The Princeville/Hanalei area is also. In Waimea, on your way to the canyon, stop at Auntie Lilikoi's. She has many, many food products all made from Passion Fruit. They have samples of everything so you can taste before you buy. Across the strret from Aunties is a shrimp place we ate at. Order at the window and eat at a picnic table. They have many kinds of shrimp. We loved it. My Kauai book says Kona coffee is best bought on the Big Island, so we didn't buy coffee on Kauai. On our own, we did hunt down many, many beaches where movies have been filmed. What a fun day we had. If you feel the urge to shop, the Coconut Marketplace in Kapaa is great....many shops and places to eat. I cannot stress enough to buy the Kauai Revealed book. It is so worth it! Loved Kauai! Oh, and Hanapepe also has some nice shops. I bought a wooden "rooster" at a place called The Banana Patch. Couldn't leave Kauai without a rooster!

Grand Hyatt Kuai vs. Kauai Marriott?
Can someone help me with information regarding the Grand Hyatt Kuai vs. Kauai Marriott? Pros/Cons, preferences? Thank you.
RE: Grand Hyatt Kuai vs. Kauai Marriott?
Go with the Hyatt. The Marriott is a beautiful complex but I find the water less appealing. you look out at a shipping port.
