From the moment you check in, staff makes you feel so welcome you quickly begin to relax. All facilities and grounds are immaculate, and the property is so large you need a gps just to figure out where you are. But the layout is easy to figure out after a day or two, so just plan on being happily "lost" a couple of times. Staff is very quick to try to help you with any needs, and I really appreciated the aloha's and smiles from every employee I met. Pools and lagoons were warm and uncrowned. No ... Read more

This was our second visit to the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, and it was simply amazing. From the moment we checked in with Malaika, we were treated like VIP's, she really made a special effort to bless us, with attention to our rooms, the most gracious and patient service, and later follow-up. We also decided to take advantage of the Grand Club, which was very reasonably priced and had wonderful breakfast and dinner appetizers and desserts. Anna gave us fantastic service there, learning...

The customer service was great and as a honeymoon couple we were offered some perks such as free breakfast and a complimentary cabana. We had a wonderful meal at Tidepools on property.

My husband and I had the pleasure staying here for 4 nights in May. There are not enough adjectives to describe the beauty of not only of the hotel but the entire island of Kauai. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out we were awestruck. The grounds are amazing, the staff second to none, and the experience unforgettable. Even the wifi was great!

This property is beautiful and the service is excellent! The employees have gone the extra mile to make sure we have everything that we need and feel valued. Property itself is really big. We were in a room in the 1000's which was an ocean view, lower level and a really good walk from the lobby. It might have taken me 10 minutes to walk from the lobby to our room. But we loved the room! Right outside our room was a huge grassy lawn with a big hammock which was fantastic. Watch out for the bull... Read more

My wife and I visited the Grand Hyatt on Kauai for her brother's wedding, and I am just now getting a chance to review. Below are some details of the stay.. Arrival / Check-in: Unlike Maui, Kauai is a smaller island, so everything is a little more accessible. The airport is only about a half hour away and though some very tropical areas and farms. This hotel has probably the most incredible view from the lobby, as they have framed massive "window" that looks straight from the lobby out into t... Read more

This is an easy five stars. We have a timeshare up in the Princeville area. Driving from the north end to the south end where Poipu is can take as much a 1.5 hours so we decided to spend a couple of nights at the Hyatt. If you opt to stay in a resort in Kauai, you cannot go wrong with this one. The rooms are huge and the pool(s) are pretty irresistible. A good way to enjoy the pool is start with the lazy river. The lazy river has some cool waterfalls you can actually go into. It ends at the wate... Read more

This place is amazing!! It is a huge resort, but that's what we love!! The pool is huge, and there are so many levels. The water slide is pretty great, although you do have to be 42 inches. My youngest unfortunately wasn't tall enough, and that was a drag. But, my oldest loved it. The ocean is gorgeous! The grounds are gorgeous! This place is just gorgeous... If you can, upgrade to club level. Great breakfast and snacks throughout the day. We will be back! And can't wait for it!!

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt back at the end of March for 4 nights. We enjoyed the pools and restaurants, our room was very nice and our daughter attended Camp Hyatt and had a nice time meeting other children. The location was great for exploring Poipu and we visited the Waimea Canyon one day. All in all we had a great time at this resort but in saying that I'm not sure we would return due to the high cost and the resort is so big it lacks a bit soul. Staff were good though, no complaints.

As part of my work assignments to Kauai, I have stayed at most of the hotels in the Poipu area, some in Lihue, and the Starwood properties at Princeville.

The staff is wonderful, the property is meticuously maintained, the rooms are comfortable, and Hyatt loyalty is rewarded.

It does have a steep price point but it's well worth the price.

If you you can split the room using CC and points, it's well worth the cost.

Since I agree with the overall consensus of reviews here on TA I won't add too much redundant detail. We had a ground floor deluxe ocean view room towards the very end of the Poipu wing. It was quite a walk from the lobby/pools/restaurants but we really appreciated the relative quiet and lower light levels for stargazing over the ocean. The rooms were decent for the price range; very comfortable and homey. We had no complaints. All staff members from bellhops, valets, and housekeeping, to con... Read more

This was our first trip to Kauai after going to Hawaii for over 30 years, so keep in mind that any comparisons are limited. That being said, I would have to say that this property is one of the top 3 we've experienced in the islands, offering both an over the top luxury experience, and (in the case of this and the Aulani in Oahu) a fantastic Hawaiian cultural experience. The grounds are magnificent, landscaping and terrain making it seem like like you're not moving through a hotel so much as n... Read more

If the plane flights weren't so long, I would be back there already. Beautiful rooms, beautiful outside area, best pools and restaurants of the tour. We felt like royalty, we were treated like royalty. Loved, loved, loved the saltwater lagoon. Did lots of side trips to see the area. If ever We do again we will stay in Kauai all 7 days and make one flight to Pearl Harbor for the day.

First, you're greeted warmly and given leis. Then , you walk in and are welcomed with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Everything about this hotel is top notch. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated, and clean. The grounds are immaculate. The restaurants on the grounds have great menus. Staying there made my trip a truly relaxing and special vacation.

The Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa in Poipu, on Kauai's south shore is a dream of a hotel. The grounds are lush and beautifully maintained. The rooms are elegantly decorated and appointed, sound-proof, and comfortable (but just a bit on the small side). The restaurants were great, offering an amazing selection at the Ilima Terrace's breakfast buffet and live entertainment in the evening at Stevenson's, their sushi bar. Everything was taken care of, no detail missed. The only negative I hav... Read more

For the last 12 years one of the highlights of our annual trip to Kauai has been the hula schools show and Leliani Riviera band on Saturday night. It is always packed, but for some reason the management has decided to cancel this. I'm so sad that we won't continue to have this opportunity đ??˘.

So of the bar is the Four Seasons or St. Regis be prepared . The hotel is ok , but that extra attention to detail is missing. I think if you set your expectations to the correct setting , you'll be ok. The beach here is very rough for kids. Tons of surfers to watch however. If your splitting some time between here and the St. Regis the kids will love the 150 ft water slide and lazy river. This place is 52 acres , and the hotel is HUGE.

I don't know how they do it. Run probably the biggest resort I have ever been to with boutique hotel 5 star service. So many social touches. But I will preface this by saying it isn't for everyone. They have a very nice adult area. That being said there were kids pretty much everywhere. And how they cater to kids. A++. I would say our 4 1/2 year old niece said it was the best week of her life.

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt 9 years ago. When we made Kauai plans again, we knew where to stay. When I made reservations for 3 rooms, I was able to select the wing that made the most sense for us. With my grandson, we wanted to be close to the pool and lagoon so he could nap on schedule and keep us close, (FaceTime works great for babies naps). We also enjoyed their great restaurants. A couple of small glitches after check-in- Took 3 calls to get crib delivered. But overall a great time.

We stayed at the resort for a week as a family. Generally we liked our stay but wished things could be better. Rooms: we stayed on the top most floor. The rooms are large, clean and generally nice.

We stayed 3 nights with our 1.5 year old in a partial ocean view room on the ground floor. The room's lanai opened out onto the garden lawn on the ground floor and it was perfect for our son to run around straight out of our room. The property is huge and beautiful. The beach is something to be desired but we are spoiled from being locals.

The Grand Hyatt Kauai is a beautiful property; though older than some on the island, the best part of the resort is its expansive grounds. You could get lost in all the buildings and exploring all the different pools. It never felt crowded even though we were told the hotel was fully booked. I could see this as a perfect hotel to come with small kids, but it was also great being there as a couple. The hardest part was leaving the hotel to explore the rest of the island!
