We arrived on Kauai from Maui, where we had stayed at the Fairmont. The shift down a notch in quality took some adjusting to. Overall the resort was fine, but it just didn't blow me away. It's very well situated within easy reach of the airport, the resort itself has very nice public spaces, beautifully tended grounds and wonderful pools....

We have gone to the Kauai Beach Resort twice, in 2011 and 2013 and loved it both times. We will be returning in January 2015 to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary. We can't wait to get there. The staff is great and we like the fact that the resort is off by itself and not on top of another hotel....

We stayed at the KBR on a 5-day Travelzoo voucher. We were not disappointed and will visit this resort again. We were very pleased with the friendliness of the staff at all levels (front desk, housekeeping, restaurant staff, shuttle staff). The hotel grounds are immaculate and the pools make up for the lack not being able to use the beach....
