Located adjacent to Lydgate Park (the safest place to swim on the island—it also has a playground), this resort is great for families with small children. This 1968 property, after going through many changes (not all of them good), was finally reborn as the Hilton Garden Inn to much success. The renovations are remarkable in the interior areas and rooms. The rooms are modern with touches of purple (the color of Kaua‘i) and soft greens. Only two room categories have a lanai (besides cottages)—the Ocean View Lanai rooms and the one-bedroom suite. No rooms have an in-room safe, you will have to use the front desk safety deposit boxes.  Rooms in Pikake Wing are larger (402 sq. ft.) than the Maile Wing (363 sq. ft.). Some rooms have bathtubs. If you want a place to sit outside, opt for a room on the first floor facing the pool. The cottages are a good value for families since they are very close to the Kamalani Playground and have adjoining room options. The pools are small and not remarkable here, but they have been redone and are often quiet because of their size. They added a near-beach snack bar called “Mamahunue’s” which serves lunch and drinks close to the main pool and has an active volcano (you will have to see it for yourself) or you can just enjoy the fire pit. It also has very nice views of the Wailua River mouth. They have a cultural sunrise visit to the heiau near the beach (three days a week which is included in your resort fee) and nightly entertainment in the lobby. This hotel is always busy.

Rates are $289–$319 for rooms, suites (450–625 sq. ft.) are $329–$409. 1/1 (685 sq. ft.) cottages are $399. Lots of packages available.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just can’t say enough about your books and their attention to detail. My parents went to Maui a few years back and after reading your book, realized they had missed a lot of “gems” because they just didn’t know where to look. I think we are all in for a very memorable adventure this fall.”
