We were camping most of the time in Hawaii, and on my last night I decided a hotel might be best to just gather our bearings and, let's be honest, get clean... beach camping only offers outdoor showers... Ha.
This was more than a hotel; it was more like an apartment/condo community. From our paperwork and signage, it appears some units may be privately owned, while others rented out to travelers. No matter the logistics (I was just curious), it was a great place to spend our final night. The beds were cozy - so many pillows! The place was roomy - enough room for these two campers to finally get some personal space! A kitchen, big bedroom, living/dining area, large lanai.. and the bathroom had a separate vanity room which was so convenient for two people to use.
It was later in the evening by the time we settled so we didn't use the pool ( a bit chilly), but we did use the hot tub. It was nice. The property was well-kept.
Since we arrived in the early evening and were leaving early the next day, we didn't get to use this room's (or apartment, rather) full potential! The kitchen was SO well-stocked, but we didn't get to use anything except the coffee pot. This would be GREAT for extended stay.
There is beach access as advertised, but it's quite a walk--and across an access road, so just keep that in mind. The advertisement is accurate, but it's not as close as you'd think. (We didn't need the beach access, but just sharing because others will.)

This is a beautiful resort located centrally in Kapaa. The rooms are well appointed with high end applicances. The resort is quiet, well maintained and right on the beach. Great lazy river pool and three jacuzzis. We enjoyed our stay and will come back to this resort for future visits to Kauai.

Well priced hotel for Kauai. Good location, easy access to every part of the island. Room was ok, the bed was very comfortable. Disappointed in the beach, not really good for going in as it was very rocky. The pool area was small but nice. It would have been nice if the pool was heated, it was too cold to go in.

We were super happy with this hotel - very clean, very updated and modern, and at a pretty nice location. It's not within walking distance to anything, but you will have to rent a car on Kauai anyway, so that shouldn't be a problem.
- There is more than one pool!! Don't be deceived by the small round one (unfortunately no one told us there was a 2nd pool before the day we left!)
- There is an ocean pool down in Lydgate Park - I highly recommend you go down there. It's an excellent spot to go swimming or just splashing around without worrying about big waves
- They have beach mats, beach towels, and coolers at the reception that you can borrow for the day.
- Go eat breakfast at Passion Cafe in Kapaa (3 min drive from the hotel). Excellent breakfast eggwiches!
- Don't leave food or sweet drinks out in the hotel room - it WILL get covered in small ants (this also applies to the car...)

Keep in mind this is not a Hotel. You have to call the number they give you, and they will respond with a code for the lock on your unit door. Is a little confusing at first and I didn't think they made this very clear at expedia. However, the place is kept up in good condition, and is at a great location. The only thing is if you get hot easy; there is only an AC wall unit in the bedroom, which doesn't get much cold air to the rest of the unit. Overall I am quite pleased with the place and would stay there again. Definitely worth 4 stars, but falls significantly short of 5.

Located on the south end of the famed Coconut Coast, Wailua sits at the mouth of Hawaii’s longest navigable river. This area was once favored by royalty and is dotted with sacred Hawaiian sites. Today, kayakers and adventurers use the town as a base to explore the Wailua River, Wailua Falls, and the 19th-century plantation village of Kapaa.
