This resort has both pros and cons. Overall it’s a great location to explore Kauai. Pros: Great Ocean Views unless you are on the first floor in Building B or C where the pool and landscaping block your views. Building A has by far the best Ocean Views. You can walk to several good restaurants and two grocery stores across the street. Taco Bell, Subway and Panda Express are across the street. Plenty of parking. Staff is friendly and helpful. All rooms have full kitchens. Third floor units are all two bedrooms loft style with laundry in most, otherwise you can use two laundry rooms on site. Large areas of lawn adjacent to the ocean. Fantastic views of sunrise and the moon rise. There is a medium size pool, not heated. There is a small spa. Barbecue area for cooking. Outdoor Shower by the Spa, another one on the lawn area near Building A to wash of dirt or sand. The chickens seem to stay away from this resort, not sure why. Maintenance and housekeeping are responsive for any issues. There is a great long bike and walking path that heads north to several beaches and to the North part of Kapaa, where there are many great places to eat, drink and try Shave Ice. Cons: No sand beach at the resort and the beach is not swimmable. No AC or heat, they do have ceiling fans and floor fans. The trade winds will cool the unit if you leave the patio door and the front door open. The front door has a lockable security screen door. This resort is older and rooms as well as the outside can be outdated and in need of maintenance. Some rooms have been remodeled. Outdoor furniture around the pools and lawn need to be replaced. Some outdoor furniture has been replaced, but there are several lounge chairs that should be. Pool is not heated. No security guards, there have been complaints (on Facebook) of theft from people who leave the patio doors open on the first floor.

I liked the layout of our condo. There was a loft room and a second room and 2 bathrooms. I didn't like the location on the beach. The beach right outside the hotel is solid Rock so you have to walk a bit to the left or right to get a decent beach to hang out in. Noise echoes pretty badly at night and because the windows of the loft room don't shut you can hear everything from cars on the road to chatter in the courtyard. There is no air conditioner just fans. Also no in unit washer and dryer. It is a little to far from Kapaa town to walk to and a little too far from coconut marketplace to walk to. You can pretty much walk to Safeway and Ross. Tiki tacos and Kenji burger is walkable so that was great. Also our building had some painting going on so it was super inconvenient walking in and out of our building. The concierge/front desk is also very limited.

No AC in Hawaii seems nuts to me, hotter in the room than outside, fans are worthless and with the theft we’d read about and how people have literally broken into a room with the people asleep with their patio open, we didn’t feel comfortable leaving the patio door open to get the ocean breeze going through at night. Dishwasher EXTREMELY LOUD, front screen door lock sticks randomly. Walls thin and could hear those above us stomping. DVD player didn’t work. Volume on TV remote didn’t work. Staff very nice. Beds comfortable. Large shuffle board fun. Right on beach but it’s not swimmable which we knew. Grounds are well kept and beautiful, but rooms seem dated. Keys for laundry room don’t always work, like the door knob gets stuck. We are Worldmark owners and have stayed in many different WorldMarks, and never felt the need to write a review because they’ve all been great. Kapa’a shores is however one we will not come back to, and honestly if I hadn’t already spent the money on that room using my points we would have rented a room elsewhere.

We love staying here but one thing they need to do is replace the chairs and lounges on the lawn and pool area. They are very worn, discolored and a black substance (mold?) transfers onto whatever is placed on it (we towel, body, clothing).
