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

... really enjoying myself and I'm in and out of the water too. I was asked by the staff to judge the Hottest legs competition. It started at 2.30 pm so I said yeh. Andrew didn't want to go in it. It thought he would have done well. There was four of us girls on stage and the whole ship was packed to the gunnels in all decks watching. The guys had three pass by's to convince us to score hight. We had score cards from 1-5. We had a ball and so did they. We were ...
... a lovely moonlit dinner by the water. We thoroughly enjoyed their stories of their travels in the USA. Tom and I had a run about 8kms around a golf course pathway which, though hilly, was quite pretty though the heat sapped our energy a bit. Tom is seemingly in good form and I enjoyed his company. I did need a swim in the nearby ocean to cool off and Pam had already had swims at both the beach and ...
I officially made it to Kauai!!! The trip was as easy as can be...I have been told by numerous people that when coming to Hawaii if "Hawaii" wants you here it will make it happen, however, if "it" doesn't want you, then it will make it known that you are not supposed to be here. So with this mentality in mind. I arrived at the airport this morning at 6am for my 7am flight. My two extremely large suitcases were pushing the 50lb limit. I made some moves and got ...
... it was an injury that hung around for about a month and would prevent me from being able to surf when I got to Oahu. I was thankful that it happened at the very end of my stay on Kauai rather then the first part.
I'll never forget taking one more look at Donkeys as I walked back to the jeep. It really fell in love with this place. We surfed here so many times on so many good days, and never had to deal with a crowd ...
... let her go in quite deep water and banged my right lower leg. The pain was excruciating but I managed to deliver her to shore unscathed before returning to the water to ease the pain. Luckily, the lifeguard was still on duty and so I hobbled up the beach on Uwe's arm to receive first aid. I had broken the skin quite badly and my shin and knee were badly bruised but I was just glad that Eden was safe. Cherie took us back shortly afterwards making a detour to Hanalei Bay to show ...
