Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Kauai at Coconut Beach Kapaa
We really enjoyed the Coconut Beach Resort
We were a bit wary, since we had read a number of negative reviews of the resort. We visited from Jan. 13 to Jan. 19.
The Resort was clean; the staff was very cordial and helpful; the several meals we had there were excellent; and the view, the sound of the waves, and the rustling of the coconut trees---just beautiful....
Would we return? You bet!
Old With Mold!
We just stayed here (Dec. 29-Jan 5, 2003) at this resort, and we use the word resort loosely. Ants, mildew, rust, dirt, decay, - yes it has them all. It did have a "lovely garden tub". There was a lot of stuff growing in that garden that wasn't planted. If you like a firm mattress, this is your place - the floor is softer, seriously! The message on ice machines and elevators etc., said "temporarily out of order". "Temporary" must mean sometime in the last decade or two. All joking aside, avoid staying here. You can do so much better, even if you must sleep on the beach. Also, virtual tour is not what you will get.
We were worried, after reading some of the reviews of this hotel, because we had booked to stay here for five nights. However, I can honestly say how charmed we were when we did arrive. The staff, in every part of the hotel, were extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean and the way everything was set out, from the views of the beach to the lounge bar by the pool gave the hotel a wonderful ambience to relax in. We thoroughly enjoyed the luau and would definitely consider staying here again if we were lucky enough to make a return trip to Kauai.
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and were very sad to leave. The staff were VERY friendly especially in the restaurant where we had 2 excellent meals. We also had lunch a couple of times in the poolside bar which was also very good . The evening at the Laui was really good fun and the food plentiful .The room was large,clean and comfortable. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.
When we first arrived we were told that there was no room service even though this had been advertized on their website, and only one restaurant even though more were listed on the site also. Our room smelled musty, the couch was covered in grime and cigarette burns, the door to the balcony was rusted shut and the wood around the frame was rotting, the fixtures in the tub were rusted and falling out and there was no hotwater. We were getting married the next day and needless to say I was on the verge of tears. I was laying on the bed while my fiance took a fast shower to freshen up after a long flight when I heard a key in the door. I was lucky I was fully clothed because a staff member keyed into the room without knocking and presented me with our complimentary bottle of champagne because we were honeymooners, or soon to be. The accompanying glasses were dusty and had lipstick smudges on them. We ended up only staying one night and ended up staying at a beautiful newly renovated condo in Poipu. The owners of the condo were fabulous and apart from one annoying rooster every morning we ended up enjoying our honeymoon.
One of the best resorts on the island, close to everything... shops... entertainement. One of the best staff anywhere. ocean view.. could not get better. Will be back
Its a moldy and old hotel.
My boyfriend and I went to Kauai for our engagement. We are in our 40's. The room that they gave us was so moldy and outdated that we went to the front desk and asked for an upgrade to the best room they had. We went to that room and even though it was ocean front. It smelled so bad one would have to sleep on the balcony. Don't stay here! We ended up next door at the Best Western for less money, had a lovley kitchenette and was clean and comfortable. This hotel needs some major re-modeling and smells terrible.
It is clear from your comments that we fell well short of meeting your expectations. Please accept our sincere apologies and know that our resort has gone through a multi-million dollar renovation to both inside and outside of the rooms, as well as all outlets within the hotel.
Should your future travels include Kauai, we would welcome a second opportunity to exceed your expectations. Until that time, we wish you great health and prosperity. Aloha!
We stayed in an oceanfront room. The room was large and the A/C worked well. The room certainly needed to be updated and smelled a bit moldy but otherwise fairly clean. The other couple we were with had an ocean view room, their A/C did not work and they had a small cockroach problem. The facilities were adequate, the food average, and the employees decent. Get a good deal or go elsewhere.
Great Location ~ mixed interior...
Cons: First of all, the Resort is so difficult to find in the dark. There are no street signs, nor lights which will guide your way. My room was in near the trash area and the outside area smelled like roasted pig (not good for someone like me who doesn't eat red meat). My dad found a centipede in his room and I found ants in mine. The bed wasn't that comfortable. The luau wasn't that great -- the food was too salty and sparing.
Pros: Beautiful location right on the beach. So close to everything --> walking distance to shops and restaurants. Really, really affordable. Nice, friendly staff & air conditioning.
Perfect for large groups and Families
We enjoyed our stay at this resort. We were there during
the 9-11-01 tragety. My sister was to leave that day and since she was
stranded, the Kauai Coconut Beach Resort let her stay free Tuesday night and
1/2 off until she was able to leave on Friday. The nightly entertainment
was nice and the luau was awesome!! The staff was friendly and rooms clean.
It is also centrally located, so you never travel over an hour to get onto
either side of the island. It is an older hotel and could use some tlc. If
our plans take us to Kauai again, we will stay at the Kauai Coconut Beach

We got to Honolulu late about 6:10 and had to catch a 7:25 to Kauai....it was a mad rush...of course our carry on was the very last one off the plane...so we rushed to the inter island airport after having been up for 20 hours now...just made it and we had to repack as our bags were over the limit!!! Finally got thru...had a 40 minute plane trip to Kauai....all our ...
... over to the memorial which was a very somber experience. The ship still holds almost 1000 seamen that never made it plus some of the survivors have been brought back to be interred in the wreck. Then we went back to shore and caught a bus to the Missouri. I took a short tour of the ship which included the memorabilia from the end of the war ceremony. Then we had a terrible time getting back to find a bus to ...

This combined with my pulled muscle put doubts in my head of whether I would paddle out at all. This would prove to be the case as I ultimately did not surf on Oahu. However, it was a beautiful place and I enjoyed my short stay on the island immensely.

They waited for us to get out but then they returned from whence they came.When a silver van pulled into the carpark a few minutes later we realised what it was all about. The driver had bought oodles of food for them and they all joined in together to eat. Amazing. At midday Cherie dropped ...
