Ask for a room closer to the pools if it’s hard for u to walk far. It was a very crowded experience as they also let people buy day passes for the pools. The adult pool was great and had wonderful food and beverage waitstaff! It is great being next to a beach to watch surfers and go hiking. The free shuttle to go out to dinner was great, with great drivers and a lovely valet staff to get it coordinated. The parrots and parrot handlers were a really wonderful experience!

Hotel's Favorite
We recently stayed at the Grand Hyatt for 6 days and 5 nights on our trip to Kauai and it was one of the nicer experiences we had ever had at a hotel. First off, we typically only use the hotel during our vacation as a place to rest but this was truly a resort in which I felt we should have stayed on the property more and simply relaxed. First, a quick summary of the property: It is HUGE. We had access to the Grand Club, which we used frequently but our room was on the other side of the resort. I feel we got our 10k steps in just by going to the club a couple times a day! Valet was speedy and efficient. Check in was very pleasant and we actually arrived earlier than standard check in (4PM). We asked for both an upgrade and/or early check in. Unfortunately the hotel was booked so no upgrade and our room wasn't quite ready but they gave us a key to access the Grand Club as well as four drink vouchers to use around the pool.. Of course, we had 2 boys, so the wife and I took their drink tickets and then bought their drinks in cash separately! Once we got to our room, even though it was a standard room, it actually was quite spacious with a large bathroom and a balcony. In addition, once nice tough that I don't see often enough, especially with hotels with a nice pool or beach access - a clothes line that spanned the space above the tub so we could hang out suits to dry. Pool/beach wise, there are so many pools and access to the beach that I never felt it was too crowded. The main pool areas would be the saltwater lagoon, which is pretty large and where our boys spend the majority of there time. There's a main pool with 2 jacuzzis easily accessible. There is a lazy river, which was VERY lazy in the sense that I felt like it barely moved. A water slide, where people of all ages enjoyed it immensely. Protip - it closes at 6PM but basically between 5-6pm there is no wait. And also access to Shipwreck Beach which has a pretty strong rip tide so I would say you should be careful but it was fun for the boys to play on the beach and have the waves splash them. All the pools were also services by an excellent wait staff for both food and drinks. There are a few options to eat and drink on property and initially I didn't think we took advantage but in writing out trip review, it turns out that we pretty much tried everywhere once. At Stevenson's we were told there were known for their Martini's so the wife ordered one. I opted for a flight of whiskey. She thought the martini was decent but not spectacular. For my flight, they were out of one of the three so they gave me extra of the other two. The vibe itself was great, not too loud, and if you were fortunate, I felt like a seat on the outdoor balcony/patio would have been great. We didn't order any food but the menu certainly looked appetizing. For Tidepool, we ended up heading over and planned to order drinks at the bar and grab an open seat if one became available. It wasn't packed but there weren't any seats initially but after getting our drinks, a couple seats at the bar opened up. We then ordered another round plus a scallop appetizer, which was very tasty. I would like to add that several folks we had talked to mentioned Tidepool to eat at (both from the helicopter tour and tubing) even though they didn't know where we are staying. As mentioned, we also ate at Seaview Terrace for dinner as a family one night and to be honest, for a fancy hotel, the food was surprisingly reasonably priced and very tasty (this is part of my comment about I thought the food was comparable to Beach House but maybe a third of the cost? Granted, you don't get the selection of fresh fish but I'm talking just about how we enjoyed our food). My wife ordered the lobster roll and she really enjoyed it. And this in addition to live music, which I believe is every evening. A very nice and relaxing way to wind the day down. We did order food when we were at the pool and in addition to the standard pool type food (chicken tenders, hot dogs, etc), they also had a few choices that had the hawaiian flair. We tried both a poke bowl and the kalua nachos and both were very good. Note that we ordered food through one of the waitstaff as we reserved a bungalow for the day we spent at the pool and the service was great. I would like to mention that when we were at the pool and not at the bungalow, we received equally great service for the team in taking our orders. The day we left, because it was a noon flight and 5 hours, I was afraid the boys would get hungry so I did take them to the breakfast buffet at Ilima Terrace. I found the pricing to be very interesting as it was $41 for adults but the cost for the kids was $1/per year which meant $8 and $10 for us. I found that was incredibly flexible because buffets are typically wasted on kids. There was a huge omelet station which I found interesting as typically at buffets, there's always a huge line but when we went, I was always the first or second one in line. The buffet had a decent variety and also some interesting fresh juice combinations. There is also a Luau on site which we did not partake in that occurs I believe on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Pro-tip, it seems you can basically watch the show for free from the edge of the grass. I don't think most people would stay for the whole thing but I saw plenty of families watch for 5 or so minutes and move on. Great way to advertise! I mentioned the Grand Club and it was a very solid option, particularly for families in which the breakfast was more than acceptable and a great way to start off the day. They had afternoon snack, then a light dinner as well, followed by a dessert hour. The menu has one main item that changes daily so it does mix it up a bit. The staff was very friendly and must have consistently worked there because I saw a few times where they greeted guests from previous visits. Also, the a/c was on and a great place to cool down, although in the morning/evening, the outdoor seating was quite pleasant. All in all, would we go back? I feel like it is best summarized by the discussion my wife and I had about Kauai in general. Did we have a good time and would we go back to Kauai? And the answer is yes, it was fun and yes we would go back. However, it wasn't so exciting that we wouldn't mind visiting other places before making our way back. And the fact that we were at a VERY nice hotel had a big impact and would be a factor on if we came back or not.

This resort offered a great getaway with perfectly manicured and lush grounds with pools that never seem to end! It was a very relaxing experience staying here and we would gladly return. The Tidepools restaurant had a special atmosphere with excellent seafood too. We did quickly learn that we needed a car to get around as Uber is not readily available. We had avoided due to the resort parking fees, but, self parking wound up being no charge, which would have been nice to know up front. There were always adequate spots available.

Had a wonderful time at this beautiful place! Perfectly located and very nice amenities ! The pool had a lazy river and water slide and there was also a salt water lagoon. The beach was nice but too rough for swimming . We saw sea lions on the beach. Restaurants were very good. Don’t miss Tidepools and we ate at the breakfast buffet a few times and it was also very good. The gym was great and had Peloton bikes! Complimentary shuttle was nice and we used it to go to dinner at a few places nearby. The departure lounge was perfect for our last day as our flight did not leaven until late evening and we had could stay and use the pool and relax during the day. Would definitely return one day! PS take the beach path to the left of hotel for some fantastic views and sunsets !!

So happy to hear you had a wonderful time. Sounds like you hit all the highlights from hiking on the adjacent cliff trail to Tidepools to Spa and even lucky enough to see an endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal resting on the beach! Visit again sometime. Aloha.

Fabulous Spring break/Easter trip! The resort has everything you need. I wanted to relax, he wanted to golf, the 13 yo wanted fun pools/slide and food, while the 5 yo wanted the lagoon and Easter weekend activities. The luau was also wonderful!

This property is gorgeous and well-maintained but the staff seemed overwhelmed during my brief visit. It was the tail end of spring break and I was told the resort was at capacity. This was evident around the pool areas which were filled with noisy children. Even the adults only pools were hectic. Thankfully, we were able to access the Anara Spa facility which has its own lap pool and is peaceful and uncrowded. We dined at 3 onsite properties: Tidepools - way overrated. Maybe we came on an off night because it was not the fine dining experience we were expecting. We were also told they had a new executive chef, so not sure if that was a factor? We ordered all appetizers because we wanted to try a little of everything and the quality was disappointing. The soba noodle salad was overpriced at $27 and turned out to be soba noodles with a drizzle of sesame oil. We also had the kalbi beef, crab cakes, lamp chops and garden greens salad which was also overpriced at $18. The parmesan bao buns were amazing as were the desserts: chocolate lava cake and creme brulee. The staff overall from the hostess to our server, Gary, seemed indifferent and not welcoming at all. Stevensons Library - overpriced sushi rolls. A California Roll was $24 and the Crunchy Roll was $25. I'd only recommend the black cod which at $23 was decent. Service was top notch compared to Tidepools. Ilima Terrace - we had lunch there twice and it was the best dining experience overall. Relaxing view of the lagoon, very friendly service and reasonably priced for lunch. We ate off property for breakfast at the Anuenue Cafe nearby which was reasonably priced and tasty. Take-out only.

The Grand Hyatt was perfect for our first Hawaiian vacation. We loved the fresh leis upon arrival and the water fill stations. Tidepools was our favorite dinner on the island and we also enjoyed the luau. The grounds are absolutely stunning. The lagoon and pools are beautiful and the location to the beach is great! Our room was spacious and clean and we loved our lanai and beach views.

The hotel has great amenities, great views and a very nice beach. However, this is a quite tired hotel. It badly needs a meaningful refresh in the rooms, corridors, lobbies, etc. The food was fair in my opinion. LOTS of kids all over, although the adult pool was good.
