We went to Hawaii to get married and stayed at the Koa Kia Hotel for our 1 week stay! It was delightful to be there! The staff were awesome, very helpful with booking activities and kept the facility pristine! A smaller hotel than it's neighbours, it has all the facilities we wanted as we spent most of our time on...

Nestled between the Sheraton/plantation and the Marriott timeshare 8 nites stay. Quiet. Few babies. NO TEENAGERS. Smaller boutique Nice pool. Excellent personnel. Valet parking that some have commented on was fine with us. (Was included in our rate) Breakfast a bit expensive however excellent Will return

Stayed 6 nights on our honeymoon and loved every minute of it! We stayed on the first floor in a room facing the pool, and had small view of the ocean which was amazing! I chose this hotel because it had all the amenities of a big resort, without all the big crowds. Everyone from the front desk, bar, water...

My husband & I had a fabulous stay at Koa Kea. The staff was so friendly & helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our breakfast & dinner at Red Salt were both delicious. Each time I spoke with a concierge they were very helpful. We would love to come back to your wonderfully quaint...

We chose this hotel because of its reputation and because we didn't want to do a mega hotel on Kauai. It was a great fit. Located directly on the beach the setting is terrific and very relaxing. From what we could tell every room had an ocean view. The service and the people were all excellent. The room was clean...

We recently took a short trip to Kauai, but our accommodations fell through right before we boarded the plane. After we arrived we had to scramble to find a place, which was extremely difficult finding availability and February being high season. We eventually had to end up splurging more than we expected. This is how we booked a room through...

Koa Kea was the perfect way to begin our honeymoon! We were welcomed by incredibly friendly staff and a lovely bottle of champagne & local goodies in our room. The hotel has a great vibe, great location, and really comfortable beds :) We loved our personal lanai overlooking the ocean! We will definitely be back. Mahalo!

This is a clean, romantic, beautiful, relaxing and friendly hotel and resort. I think it is one of the best in Hawaii. The staff is friendly and ready to serve. They like to share tips on places to shop and eat.

We stayed at Koa Kea on our honeymoon for 4 days in February and had a wonderful time. They had great on-site amenities, like snorkel rentals and towels/chairs to take off the property. The pool and lawn area are accessible to the public beaches but still feel secluded. There are always plenty of chairs and umbrellas, and the outdoor area...

Overall a great place. More adult oriented which was nice. Great lawn and beach access. Staff all friendly and helpful. Only negative to me was prices at pool bar $14.00 for a gin tonic is just stupid and hard to understand. Regular stores sell liquor so buy your own for the pool or beach.
