Had a Great Time!

The "honeymoon suite" at the Kauai Beach Resort was as described...Decent view of the ocean, clean, well-maintained, good location in relation to attractions on the island. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the air conditioning stopped working and the humidity was kind of miserable. Other than that, my wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The resort was beautiful, and it was just a short drive to either Kapa'a or Lihue. Overall we were very pleased with our stay, and the owners were very pleasant to work with when arranging our visit. We would definitely recommend this property.
In our five days on Kauai, we tried to pack as many activities into our stay as we could. Restaurants to try: Mema (excellent Thai food), Olympic Cafe, Bubba's Burgers...And make sure to get a shave ice! Activity-wise, first and foremost, use the concierge at the resort to book them because the discounts are appreciable. Our favorite activity by far was the helicopter tour of the island. A bit pricey (about $450), but worth every penny. We also recommend setting up a kayak tour on the Wailua River, and shoot for the earliest time slot to get the least crowded waterfall pool experience. For beautiful beach and forest scenery, we recommend driving along the north shore and making many stops along the way to take it all in.
All in all we had a great time and were pleased with our vacation in Kauai. One thing to keep in mind...The resort charges about $13 per day for parking, and they're currently doing some construction in the parking lots, so it's almost impossible to find a parking spot, which can be frustrating. This, however, should not deter you from considering this property.
