Staff at front/concierge were not welcoming or helpful, had to keep asking questions. They seemed bothered or told us to ask someone else. Bellmen giving wrong info. Only Staff that were pleasant were the 2 women who ran the coffee bar in the morning. First time in Kauai, I've been to Hawaii 5 times, never had this experience with people/staff. Balcony furniture was trash, needs new furniture. I did like the upgraded shower. There's no tub, no door where toilet is although it's in a water closet, only one light switch in bathroom that turns all lights on. Bad design in bathroom. The bed creaked when you sat/laid on it. I did like the separate jacuzzis around the pool however, one was closed. Won't be returning or recommending this place.

Beautiful hotel with wonderful landscaping and incredible staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful with information on local entertainment. The ocean by the hotel was warm and safe to swim in. The beach was cleaned every day so perfect for guests to sit or play on. The food was delicious and the cocktails were amazing. The pools were clean and inviting with the warm sunny days on the island. We spent the evenings soaking in the hot tubs after hiking the trails on the island. I can't wait to come back!
