Easy to get in and out of. Price was on point for what we received. Not too fancy and not too janky. We for right in. The restaurant attached called Lava Lava was epic with good food and great drinks. The picture is your view from the shores of the hotel.

Very nice mid-budget hotel just steps away from the beach. Thoroughly enjoyed the pool and spa, and awesome cocktails and ambience at Lava Lava Beach Club. Room was simple but serviceable, has AC and mini-fridge. Only downsides: difficulty parking in extremely narrow parking spaces, some inconsistent water temperature in the shower, and a misleading "garden view" that looked out onto the edge of the property and driveway to the lobby. Tip: you can walk to Street Burger nearby for incredible burgers and a great beer selection.

Loved our stay here. Pool and hot tub and ocean views were great. Lava lava Beach Club has great food. Rooms are dated but very clean and comfy! They supply clean beach towels on request. Fridge is very cold and so is the air conditioning. Yoga in the mornings on the beach.

Our very first visit for our 15th year anniversary was the best celebration ever! All the staff was so friendly, our room was spotless a great size, king size bed and pillows were very comfy too! We had a room so close to the beach just a few steps from our room! They have great food at Lava Lava restaurant and great live music every night. The beach was surrounded by a lush green grass area. I highly recommend kauai shores resort and would definitely go again! A Special shout out to our concierge Keola, he made our actual wedding anniversary day reservation for the fern Grotto river boat ride and dinner, he even took us there and picked us up, that’s going above and beyond! Mahalo!

Actually I'd like to move in here permanently. Situated right on the beach in lihue. The rooms are nice. The colors are very tropical. Patio is splendid. As you can hear the ocean waves crashing and you're just steps from the beach. The sunrises are absolutely incredible. The restaurant dinner was fabulous, Had the ribs. I will say breakfast is way too expensive. Just to have 2 avocado toasts were $40 a little bit too much. Staff has been incredible, cleanliness excellent, parking near rooms, pool lovely.
