Aloha Shane, Thank you for the 5-star rating and review from your recent stay at Ko'a Kea Resort. We look forward to your next vacation! Mahalo,

4 out of 5
I loved the size - truly a boutique resort. It was very peaceful... There were only a few children, and honestly they seemed out of place! (I would definitely choose somewhere else if I had children). The staff were wonderful. The concierge helped us book a NaPali boat tour when the one I had booked canceled on me at the last minute. The housekeepers were very professional and the turndown service was a treat. Mike and Daniel (valet/bellmen) were great - always quick and remembered us. There is no beach directly behind the resort, but there is a boardwalk which leads to a wonderful beach just to the East. (Saw sea turtles and Monk Seals basking and relaxing there). Love this area! The one big negative I have, and the one thing that might keep me from returning to Koa Kea, is the inconsistency of their 'room types'. I had reserved a King with an ocean view, and had called during the booking process directly to try to clarify ocean front/vs ocean view/ vs partial ocean view. So, I was very surprised when the took us to our 'ocean view room', but it looked straight out at the Tiki bar and the rooms across the pool. You could only see the ocean from a tiny corner of the room while standing right against the glass. Anywhere I've ever stayed, this would be a partial or 'obstructed'. The next day they moved us to a room with a wonderful view! What I expected to begin with. Get an o/v, in the EAST building, 2nd or 3rd floor. I'd only stay here again if they would commit to this.

Requested wake up call for 5:15 am and DID NOT GET CALL! Late to our scheduled tour. Staff almost overcharged me $100 until I noticed it and had to correct her. Housekeeping stopped supplying us water complementary water, shampoo and conditioner bottles once we stopped putting out a morning tip ( we forgot the morning hotel staff forgot our wake up call and we ran out of room once we realized the time) and had to ask for our water etc. Bad experiences -will not return

Great honeymoon spot

Went there for our honeymoon. Everything about it was great: the staff, the location, was the rooms. It seemed to cater to couples, as there were few families.

Great Location and hotel

You'll be right near several great beaches with incredible snorkeling. I swam with a turtle and a seal. The southside is considered the sunny side so we often had great weather while other areas were raining. Most excursions are about 30 minutes away but it still worth it. Nice staff, clean rooms.

Paradise Found!

Pros: The hotel was perfect for us--the right size and scale. It's not a mega resort with lots of noise and hubbub. It's relaxing and tranquil.
Cons: Can't think of a thing to improve.
Location: Location was ideal. A walk to shops and for exercise long the beach trail.
We booked the Koa Kea based upon several reviews and were not disappointed. We upgraded to a deluxe oceanfront room and were extremely pleased with size, bedding, and amenities. This is really a wonderful hotel, with the perfect location, small size, and outstanding service one expects in a five star hotel. We ate in the hotel restaurant Red Salt and the food was well-prepared and creative. Drinks by the pool were all top shelf brands and generously poured. The staff is friendly and helpful--eager to please, but not hovering or fawning. The room was serviced twice per day and was immaculate. The location of the hotel was perfect--right on the beach and enjoying a perfect view of the Pacific. There was a lovely beach steps from our room and the surf shack provides everything one needs for sunning, surfing, and snorkeling. We could not have been more pleased with our stay and are planning to return next year.

My husband and I just came back from staying a week here. The time flew by. We weren't ready to leave this place. Amazing hotel and staff. Everyone was courteous, went out of their way to help us, the valet guys knew us by name. It was one of the nicest we've stayed at. One of the reasons we booked it was the smaller size. However, if you want huge, more pools (there was one nice one) and more options this is not this place. The views were nice and access to the beach. It is very a quick walk to Poipu beach also. Red Salt was very delicious and other restaurants across the road and nearby. We would definitely stay again if we return.

Treated like Queens!

This resort doesn't photograph well..It is so so pretty and so zen.  The staff knows you from the first moment you arrive. They take care of every need and are so helpful about local suggestions and cool out of the way spots.
