We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Royal Sonesta. The grounds were gorgeous, the hotel was clean and beautiful and the staff were outstanding. We enjoyed adventuring Kauai but looked forward to “coming home” at the end of the day to the fantastic pool and beautiful private cove. We shall return for sure!

We stayed for 6 nights at Royal Sonseta. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Belinda at the Concierge desk was very helpful. She was very friendly and always willing to help with any questions. The property seems very old and probably needs some work
