Thank you so much for your feedback! We are very happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and loved dining at Lava Lava! We hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Location was ideal to see whole island. Staff was great. Enjoyed being attached to Lava Lava Beach club. 5 minutes to Kayaking. 45 mins to Waimea Canton. 45 mins to Hanalei. Staff checked by text each day to check on needs / issues. 2 nice pools. Only downer was undersized parking stalls that put vehicle at rusk of scratches/nicks.
Thank you so much for sharing! We are delighted to read that you loved your stay with us and that our staff provided great service! It is true the spots at the parking lot are small. We do offer complimentary valet so that guests do not have to worry about parking their vehicle! We hope that you had a lovely time and will join us again in the future!
Yes. In some ways, the Kauai Shores Hotel has a leg or two up on the 5-star resorts. Nowhere else on the island were we able to find a hotel with true beachside dining or a true beachside stay. The big resorts have patios, decks, large pool areas, railings, shrubbery, and other barriers separating you from the shore (in some cases, you can't even see it unless you walk down to it), but KSH delivers a nostalgic and authentic Kauaian time on every level. Not only can you dine near the shore of the ocean, but you can do yoga, and you can walk from your hotel room, onto some grass, onto some sand, and then be in the water in a matter of seconds. There's no walking through lobbies, walking through gates, across patios, pool areas, through other gates, through shrubbery, and the hotel itself is devoid of all of the corporate/branded trappings, distractions, and annoyances of the big resorts as well. It's just a pure Kauai experience. The hotel is somewhat retro but clean, and the staff we interacted with, especially Richell at the front desk and Jennelle and the two Sofias at the restaurant were fabulous. While the rooms were basic (no fancy marble bathrooms), they were also clean, and the beds were comfortable. If you're tired of the stuffy and corporate environment the 5-star resorts offer and are looking for a truly relaxing, peaceful, and joyful time, try KSH next time you go to Kauai.

Love this hotel. It has a really good vibe, a fantastic pool, great people so it was easy for my 10 year old to be immediately playing with other kids in the pool, beach in the property (but sea not great for swimming there), and a good restaurant at the beach itself. Also conveniently located in the East to easy to access the whole island.
Mahalo for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and your 10 year old had a blast at the pool! We are centrally located to plenty shops and restaurant are glad you went out to explore. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Mahalo for staying with us!
Great central location for access to all the island adventure. Close to a plethora of choices for meals and shopping. Great staff, clean rooms, comfortable and stylish environment. Fantastic choice for a place to be while exploring Kauai!

Just spent a week here during 2nd week in July 2021. Great place, nothing fancy but clean, great rooms, amazing Lava restaurant and bar, ocean front, great spot in middle of Islands east side.
The rooms are big, nice clean king beds with great sheets and pillows, two end tables with recharging lamps. Big flat TV with a ton of channels. A safe, Lanai had a table and 2 chairs. Overlooking the pool is the rooms to get on the 2md floor. Each building has a ice maker on the 1st floor Nd 1 of the buildings has 3 laundry machines.
There r 2 pools, 1 kinda big hot tub. The beach is ruff Nd usually gets more rough throughout the day BUT like 100 yards to the south down a path is a secluded beach for kids and there is snorkeling beach there also.
It's 30 mins to Poipu and like 40 to Hanalei BUT look up road closures and times it's open. U have to check out both those places BOTH amazing.
Hawaiian Monk Seal at Poipu a d a huge sea turtle with a million other fish.
I def would stay here again, best place is Kauai for the $$$$
