My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing 10 days at this property this month. We purchased our MVC ownership at Kauai in 2012 and have stayed at this property several times since then. The staff is marvelous! We like a getaway from stress and normal life (my cell phone remains in the safe when we stay at the Lagoons -)) and this resort provides just that. We are noticing the villas are showing wear typical of a 15 year old property, so hope the planned refresh comes thru. We have enjoyed the upgraded appliances and were disappointed to find GE replacements on this trip. Specific complaint is a noisy GE dishwasher in an open area is just that ... unwanted noise. Our water heater burst during our first night in the villa, flooding one bedroom and creating an unwanted disturbance, but again the staff was marvelous and took care of it appropriately. Again, a sign of a 15 year old property. The young man covering security woke us up and cleaned most of the mess up in short order, and we greatly appreciated him! It seems the new neighbor, Timbers, was stopping walkers on the bike path along the ocean below our villa. This was sad to see as it looked as though perhaps a chink appearing in the previously amicable relationship. Life was definitely sweeter when the hotel (now Royal Sonesta), the golf course (now Timbers), the unfinished resort (now Timbers) and the Lagoons were all Marriott properties. Please keep focus on maintaining Aloha amongst friends and neighbors so we owners/guests don't feel a divide.

What a beautiful resort. It is quiet and the gardens are lovely. The beach is a short drive, the pool is not huge but never crowded. The rooms are fabulous, how many resorts have a subzero refrigerator? Large rooms and beautiful views. No restaurant on site but close by there is restaurants and shopping. Thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful environment.

Stayed here many times and things are starting to slip. Unit looked worn, horrible pillows and threadbare towels. Staff mentioned that units may be redone soon, but will be taking away high end appliances and replacing with cheap GE models. Sad to hear this as this is one one the nicest units of MVC. Activities offered were mostly crafts, no physical/wellness offerings. The staff are fabulous, friendly and helpful. Location is central for exploring Kauai. Hope the reno and proximity to The Timbers doesn’t spoil this place. More suited for adults than families with children.

Very quiet and relaxing ! perfect place to have real down time away from hectic crowds. The pool is lovely and the staff most helpful. While there is no restaurant there are plenty of grills, and the kitchen was supplied well- if you are missing something from the store they have the basics for purchase. My husband walks with a cane - so navigating the resort was a bit tricky, particularly because he wanted to go to the gym, which was pretty far away from the room .Other than that - I would stay there again. Some mentioned the airplane noise since it’s close to the airport -but we did not notice that it had a negative impact on the peacefulness of the area.

Awesome views, the landscaping is spectacular, the rooms (we had a 2 BR) are big and clean. We had a view of the pool and the bay which was stunning. This is a calm and relaxing resort in a secluded area of the Island surrounded by a golf course, the bay, lagoons another Marriott resort and, oh yeah the Airport. Even though the place is near the airport, it is not a very active airport so it really isn't an issue. The staff is great as well. The one thing this is NOT is a beach resort. They do have beach chairs available to take to other beaches but there is no beach here. Since it is a Hawaiian resort you might assume there is a beach. There is no beach. However, knowing that going in you can find other beautiful beaches on the island. You are allowed to use the beach at the other Marriott resort down the street, but since this fair skinned Irish lad needs shade, without an umbrella, this was not an option for us. Also, there is no restaurant or bar on premises. This is not that uncommon for Marriott Vacation locations. We have stayed in two other locations that were also sans bar and restaurant, Tucson Arizona and Absecon NJ, but still it would be nice to have a pool bar. Not sure why they don't, as there is plenty of room for one. All-in-all, if you set your expectations based on what this place does NOT have, it really is a lovely place. Very lovely, in fact.

Many of my faithful readers will know I've stayed a lot at different Marriotts both in Europe and rhe US. And they may seem similar in many ways. Good and friendly service. Apart from most of their hotels, situated a few miles from the city centre. Good and spacious flats often called villas for some reason I don't fathom. Nice pools, this one here not very big , and superb cleanliness. Well kept parkareas and quiet surroundings. Most customers are either families or OAPs, like me. So why only 4 stars? Well you must have a car , there's no shuttleservice at all. Which is a bit strange since just 10 minutes away The Marriott Sonesta is and they have shuttles. Why not let those also include M Lagoons? Marriotts to me are largely inclusive places, But at this one there is no restaurant and not even a bar. I mean, a bar is not only about food and drink, it's a social thing where you get to meet new faces and learn more about them, and yourself. (And mentioning bars you"ll find 10 to 20 minutes walk away, they close at 10 pm!) So what do you do to eat? Don't bank on the shop usually at Marriotts called markets. The one here isn't a minimarket, it's a nano market. About 30 sq feet and self service with very little to choose from. They didn't even have Coca-Cola! So car is a must and driving to a really great Safeway solves most needs. I mentioned the pool area, there's also a good fitness centre. But there's not much else in terms if activities. Yes, they let you have bikes for 2 hrs, but only to be used on paths around the big golf course close by. The flat had TVs in living- and bedrooms and en suite bathrooms. But I do not understand why there's no way to regulate the showerhead. The balcony is really big and the folding doors from the livingroom opens up a huge place. You can't go down to swim in the sea even though it's only a crafty stone's throw away. You'll need to walk about 15 minutes down through the Sonesta or further. If you don't want to use the many bbqs and firepits there are several restaurants . I tested a few . The Hualani had great reviews so I went there and tried their moonfish. Definitely good but not cheap. And mentioning prices, Kauai is expensive!! I noticed several reviews about the Marriotts at Doral in Miami complained about the closeness to the airport. The Lagoons is also very close but you don't notice the planes, but the helicopters fly out regularly over you heading for Princeville. And the whole island is like staying in a bird sanctuary which I enjoyed, so many different ones and beautiful. So a 4 is correct I presume.

A great 2 bedroom villa with an ocean view, top notch kitchen appliances and excellent pool and surrounding grounds. This was our first visit to this MVC property and will surely book again. The only strange thing was that why was what appeared to be a thriving shopping area among the canals is vacant.

What a wonderful time my family had staying here. 6 adults and 2 grandkids enjoyed our visit. From the start Candee and Jordanwere very welcoming and knowledgable of the preperty and island. On arrival front desk team leader Halia really sets the bar for her team. Britney always had a smile. The housekeeping staff and maintenance were top notch. The grounds were beautiful and the bbq's clean. We will definately return here!

We had a relaxing and enjoyable 6-night stay here. The hotel, somewhat dated, still retains its charm. The personnel who greeted us on our arrival, from McKenna and Crystal at the front desk, to Jordan, the concierge, were welcoming and helpful. The grounds was well-maintained and picturesque. Our suite, with a view of the blue ocean, was comfortable and clean. It’s refreshing that parking was free. The shallow pool, with a tube slide, was a favorite of our grandkids. They also loved the fun keiki programs at the activities center. I enjoyed the quiet daily early morning walk around the lagoon to start the day. There’re several good restaurants, and a beach a short driving distance nearby. And it’s situated next to a quiet beautiful golf course.

Soooo … probably the nicest rooms on the island. Huge 2 or 3 bedroom units with gorgeous full kitchen and wonderful bathrooms. Thanks Marriott’s for the elevators and courteous people to help with luggage. Spacious and all have ocean view. The bad news is no amenities. The rec room/fitness room is located so far away that we never bothered to use it. No bar, no restaurant. One very nice pool, but too shallow. One spa, but always crowded. Even a handful of kids in the pool is too many, as there’s no adult space. So hard to get your aloha on because it’s almost always noisy. The view was breathtaking, but rude Timbers parks their tractors and heavy equipment at the bottom of the property, so Lagoons guests have to look past them to see their ocean view. That really bothered us a lot because we paid lots to see the gorgeous view and no one wants to look at yellow backloaders and a crane all week. The grounds with the lagoons were beautiful, but nothing to do on the property. Marriott’s needs to step up their game and get this property to standards owners expect and appreciate.
