A sleep in the beds are great, an ocean front room who would want to get up! Me. A lazy day was in store for us after all the running around we have been doing,I would like to enjoy this resort unlike Maui where I didn't even get to play with the penguins. A leisurely breakfast and then I sat at the sea view terrace and checked emails and enjoyed …

Well another early start to get to the airport and drop off the Focus and jump on the plane to Kauai just a 40 minute flight, you no sooner get up than you go down. Thats what most women complain about. You get a shuttle from the airport to the car hire companies and that's where the fun stops! I stood in the queue for 50 minutes waiting to get …

Lazy Day at the Hyatt

Due to the physical activities from yesterday, it was an early bedtime last night. Which meant an early wake up this morning. Since I was awake, I decided to do sunrise yoga on the beach at 6:15am. The sun was just coming up over the mountains, and what better way to welcome it but to do the Sun Salutation overlooking the beach. OK, maybe sitting …

Our intent was to get a very early start to the day, as we were driving to the North Shore to hike part of the Kalalua Trail. While we did get moving by 630, it was still later than planned. After picking up a couple of coffees from Starbucks, we were on the road.

First stop was by the Ono Family Restaurant in Kapa'a for breakfast about …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa Poipu

    Best Hotel in Kauai


    I really was stunned that some people did not like this hotel. I stayed in 3 other 4-star hotels in Kauai and Maui, (Marriott, Sheraton, Maui Prince) and this was by far the best! They upgraded me to a suite when I checked in which was huge. The pools are incredible, both restaurants are fantastic, and the beach, although impossible to swim in because of the huge waves, is entertaining because of the crazy local bodyboarders. There is a great beach down the road but we never left the pools and salt water lagoons.My wife and I are definitely only staying here when we go back to Kauai.

    Not Worth the $


    I do not know where to start. The hotel does have a beautiful ambiance and the grounds are wonderfully landscaped, but that is about it...One evening we went to use one of the hot tubs and it was actually cluttered with feminine napkins and garbage and cigarette butts, just like their sandy beach... My husband and I just arrived home from an 11 day hawaiin honeymoon , 5 nights of these at the hyatt in koloa. When I made the reservation nobody informed me that the Anara Spa was under construction and that they had designated guest rooms for their facials and massage....YIKES !!! The rooms are very rundown , the chair in our room was very dirty, the table was wobbly and broken and the ottoman that was in the other rooms was not in ours...This property claims to have "delux oceanview". I did not feel like any of the three rooms we tried to decide upon were even close to that. The staff does not smile and makes you feel like you are just another face. The food in the restaurants is superb, but the service is worse than anywhere we have ever been. One waitress actually argued with my husband that the table was not sticky when he asked if she could wipe it off. At the tidepools restaurant the ambiance is wonderful, but again the service was horrid !! We sat for about 1/2 hour to wait for the waiter to return after our meal was done, he only had 1 other table. The carpets are extremely dirty in the hallways and the furniture is not that of a four star accomodation. Whatever you do do not waste your money on the Luau, it is probably okay if you are stuck at the resort, but it does not even halfway measure up to the Smith's Tropical Paradise Luau, the one at the hyatt made me feel like I was at some cheesy county fair...The cocktail waitresses in the bar called Stevenson's Library are very cold and act like they are miserable. On one of our last days at the resort my husband and I drove to the Princeville resort . Pay the extra few dollars and stay here , the service seemed impeccable and the view is outstanding. You can not see the sunset from the hyatt because of the location. Good Luck !!!



    My family and I stayed here for two weeks and everything was gorgeous . . . the kids loved the pool and waterslide. The grounds were beautiful. I will DEFINATELY be coming back again.



    The Hyatt is wonderful. We stayed in May '03 and the roof was being re-tiled but it did not affect the guests hardly at all. It certainly was not an inconvenience. You won't go wrong staying here - food is excellent as well!

    Renovating: Mar - Dec 2003


    >> haven't stayed there yet <

    Locals not welcome


    A few friends and i deceided to spend the weekend at the hyatt on the other side of the island.

    we had a room that was overpriced but we knew that and so we invided a couple of kids to swim with us on saturday. we were allowed 4 wristbands for the waterslide per room so we were going to have the 4 children get the bands. well we were told we had to register 2 more people at $ 35 a pop

    to get bands for all the kids to go on the slide. so two wristbands for the slide will cost you $70 at the hyatt, because thats all we got for the money. the next day we were told by security at the pool that we had 1 person to many on property and it makes me wonder how they knew who belonged to our party and who did not. i would never stay there again when you they treat you like a second class citizen.

    Paradise Revisited


    From the moment you are greeted with an orchid Lei and gaze out the open air lobby you'll feel like you're in paradise.

    Floot along the lazy river pool, taking water slides between levels...unwind in a hidden whirlpool or swim out to the island whirlpool.

    Renew yourself lazying away in a swaying hammock under the stars or shade. Or just enjoy a leisurely stroll through gradens lit with flame by night and glorius sun by day.

    Walk along the shore and gaze at majestic sunrises/sunsets as you watch for whales. Swim in the salt water lagoon where you can practice Kayaking and snorkeling.

    Enjoy a special meal at Tidepools where the Koi swim alongside your table, or rest in the Seaview Terrace as you listening to the waterfalls cascading down into the pools.

    Get to know the friendly staff who make the Hyatt Kauaii feel like coming home.

    If you're in search of a "classic" Hawaiian feel for your vacation this is the place! The quiet retreat of low rise buildings, superb accomodations, and exotic landscape, fulfill all the dreams you've had of the perfect Hawaiian vacation.

    We can't wait to go back for our 10th visit!

    There really is a paradise


    Kauai really is paradise...from the waterfalls to the breathtaking Napali Coast, Kauai has it all. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency and our stay could not have been more perfect. The resort is breath taking with everything you could ever need. The consierge was like having our own personal tour guide. The array of pools and the romantic beach areas are beautiful, filled with tropical trees and flowers you can't help but fall in love with this resort. If you want to save a little on meals, there are plenty of lower priced places to eat at off of the resort. We highly recommend Brick Oven Pizza. The grocery stores are very reasonable for snacks and drinks. (just don't buy milk $$$). We also recommend a Movie tour, now you know why that place looks so familiar.... While none of the beaches are crowded due to their policy that all beaches allow public access, you should find your way to Barking Sands Beach. It meets up with the Southern end of the Napali Coast. You will think you're lost in all those fields but privacy and romance awaits. The best part about all of Hawaii is that as tropical as it's still USA!!! We watched the NFL on Sunday and ate McDonalds fries!!!!

    Wonderful property.....truly a paradise!


    Just returned from a 9 day visit, June 19 - 28, and could not be more pleased with the Hyatt.Found all staff encountered to be friendly and helpful. Pools and gardens breathtaking! I can't imagine anyone not enjoying themselves at this resort. Rooms large well appointed and clean. While the restaurants/food are not a bargain here, there are few if any bargains at restaurant/food establishments anywhere on the island.

    Pick the Hyatt you won't be disappointed!

    Great Place!


    This is a very beautiful hotel, luxurious and elegant in an understated way. Lots of dark hardwoods and fine materials in the construction of the buildings. Spacious, nicely furnished, elegant ocean-front suites. Several good restaurants, and within an easy drive of dining opportunities in nearby communities. Beautiful swimming pools in several arrangements, including one with a slide for the young and the young-at-heart. Great place--we're headed back there tomorrow, as a matter of fact!
