Kauai Coast Resort at the Beachboy
Travel Blogs from Kapaa
Today was a day of travel. Although it's always a bit of a hassle, today seemed more so than most. There were fifty of us checking in at the airport and they gave us only one agent. Because Al and I don't move as fast as most, we ended up at the end of the line and stood on our feet for over an hour, waiting to check in. From that point on the …
... another repeat of me crying when I couldn't find anything, so we headed to a place we knew, Kalapaki Joes. I ordered the blue cheese burger, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also ordered a few drinks. They were pretty strong and I hadn't drank in a while, so they hit me pretty hard. We sailed back to our room, or so I thought in my drunken state from the passenger seat of a convertible with the top down. Upon reaching my bed, I was asleep.
... might have only been 9:00am there, but to us it was 11:00am. We got lucky and found a store that sold Go Picnic meals. They are like lunchables for grown-ups. We both got the hummus and crackers. It was some of the best hummus I've ever had.
The flight to Lihue was long as expected. After hitting the Pacific Ocean there isn't really anything to see out the window so I watched the in-flight movies. As we passed the Big Island I got a really ...
... th Wednesday—We were up early but our hope of swimming today did not materialize!- The maid was at the door at 9 am asking us to leave so she could do the room and we said NO—we do not have to leave till noon! Finished our packing and had the boxes taken to the car by one of the guys here. Took the left-over food to the library for whoever wants them. Took some wine and water bottles to Rindy, said some goodbyes and at noon took our keys to ...
... we've stopped to see, Kauai has been soooo dry (until today) that there was only a trickle of water!
We crossed the Hanalei River and headed to Hanalei Bay and walked part of the very long beach.
On the way back, we stopped at and at Kilauea Point to see the lighthouse. Great ...
How has this resort rated in the past?
We were told we didn't have an Ocean View but apparently every room has an Ocean View

What a great place for a family vac
Our family stayed at the Kauai Coast Resort at Beachboy from 8/24/03 to 9/1/03. My husband and I, our grown children, and grandchildren all loved it. Very centally located to visit any part of the island. The Coconut Marketplace across the parking lot was a perfect get a way for quick shopping, ice cream or a meal. The teenagers went to a movie, could walk over and we felt safe about it. The restaurant at the Resort is REALLY GREAT, but expensive, we had dinner there a few times. The rooms were well appointed, clean, spacious. I can't think of one thing that was negitive. I would recommend it to friends, and will stay there again.
We stayed there from 8/1/03 to 8/5/03. This is condo style hotel. Very clean and quiet. The pool is great for children. Kind of shallow for adults. They have gym, spa and two hammechs(sp?). They also have BBQ if you get tiered of eating out everyday.
We loved it and recommend it to everyone.
Great for families!
Took our three year old and had a fantastic time. This is our third trip to Kauai (previously stayed near Poipu.) The resort is beautifully maintained the rooms are generous size and have all the amenties a family needs. Close to everything-including a market. Not a swimmable beach, but the pool is great. Very close to Lydgate park- a beach perfect for little ones with a huge playground. Would definitely go back.
My husband and I vacationed at this resort June 2003 with very few complaints. We searched the internet for over two weeks before deciding this would be the top choice for our first vacation on Kauai. Viewing the posted reviews and resorts website photos more than a few times helped us make the decision. The condo had a stunning ocean view from the lanai and we were delighted that the rooms were as lovely as they had been depicted in the photos, and they were very clean; however, I did spot a few undesirable insects at times scurrying about. I was told by some of the local citizens that this was a problem all over the island, so I made sure I thoroughly sprayed our luggage before departure. The air conditioning was needed and appreciated; I cant believe anyone would be able to stay in a hotel room without it, at least not in the summer. The grounds were immaculate and covered with absolutely beautiful and very fragrant flowers and shrubbery. The Coconut Marketplace offers plenty of places for shopping and eating and is conveniently located a few yards to the remc of the resort. The ocean is only a few feet in front of the resort and the seashore is the perfect place for lounging in the moonlight and enjoying the sound of the surf. We definitely will be taking a second vacation at this same location. mcgd you have a wonderful time when you visit Kauai. Aloha
Wonderful place to stay.
The Kauai Coast Resort was a wonderful place to stay. I was concerned that the pictures on the internet would be misleading because it looked so beautiful. The pictures were were extremely accurate. Our 1 bedroom condo/suite was considered garden view, but we could see the ocean from our balcony. This place was very relaxing and the views from the hotel pool should not be missed. The entire family especially liked the hammocks! I would not hesitate to stay at the Kauai Coast resort again.
It was VERY affordable for what we got.
We came bac k a month ago and can not wait to go back. The rooms were very nice and the atmosphere was very relaxing.
Perfect for us
Stayed here in May 2003 with my parents and two college aged children. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo. All of us loved it. The rooms were spacious and nicely furnished, the 2 bathrooms huge! Although someone told us, the push hard for the timeshares, no one ever approached us. Grounds are lovely with a nice pool. Location is good since you can walk over to the Coconut Place Mall for restaurants or shopping. The beach isn't good for swimming - too rough and rocky - but lovely to view and walking. Highly recommend.
I just returned from a week stay at the Kauai Coast Resort and it was absolutely wonderful. The rooms, rock form pool and jacuzzi are just as they are depicted to be on the resort website. In fact many aspects are better than expected. For instance, the bathrooms are exceptionally large containing adequate space to de-sand after a day on the beach. The rooms are serviced every day, that is, they are cleaned, bed made and the bath stocked with fresh towels. The Coconut Marketplace is literally a short stroll across the parking lot and is an open air shopping center offering shops selling everything you could possibly need to enjoy your vacation. The grounds are beautiful and the Hukulani restaraunt located at the resort is one of the best restaraunts on the island. The few negatives include: 1) There are no elevators - however, the stairs are wide and very easy to climb. 2) The resort is a timeshare - but the staff does not pitch anything unless you seek it out. For instance, if you use the activities desk to schedule a luau or helicopter ride, expect the activities director to offer you a discounted price if you take the so called "property walk through." 3) The beach is nice, but completely useless - the surf is too rough, but beautiful to look at and listen to with your lanai doors open (and bug screen door closed) at night. The staff at this resort is wonderful and never say "no" to any of your requests. We decided to extend our trip an extra day and they found a way to accomodate us so we could stay in the same room. Unless you have so much money that you are throwing stacks of it in a fire to keep warm at night, you simply cannot go wrong by staying here, you will not be disappointed.
This is an excellent hotel. The staff is amazing and it's very laid back. The restaurant food was great. The rooms in the new building are large, clean and above standard. The grounds are well maintained and chairs were readily available and well spaced out. The ocean in January is very active and the drop off is very quick. Swimming is not great at this time of the year. They are several other hotels, shopping and restaurants within walking distance.
I am a website junkie and I really like to research a place before I go there. This resort turned out to be everything it was built up to be! The rooms are immaculate and the upkeep on the hotel and the grounds is perpetual. (And it shows) The rooms are roomy and gorgeous. The furnishings and the appliances are new and first class. The beach is not great for swimming but very picturesque and quiet. My wife and I loved bopping over to the Coconut Marketplace (right next door) for a quick sandwich or a piece of pizza anytime we wanted. They have quite a variety of restaurants all within walking distance. Overall, a stay there is a great value and you will not be disappointed. You can't find a nicer condo for the money!
