The Sheraton is the perfect complement to the Hyatt. While the Hyatt excels at gorgeous and exotic grounds, the Sheraton boldly embraces the ocean. The Ocean and Beach wings are closer to the ocean than at any other major Kaua‘i hotel. The sound of the surf hitting the rocks below the Ocean Wing is soothing. Kiahuna Beach, in front of the Beach Wing, is wonderfully close and easy to access. The Garden Wing (across the street) is generally lacking but is cheaper, and we’re not as fond of the rooms there. All rooms are on the small side (410 sq. ft. for the garden view, 510–530 sq. ft. for Ocean and Beach) and don’t feel particularly Hawaiian. But the resort makes up for it with its cozy relationship with the water. Most rooms are connected to others by a lock-off—good for families needing more than one room. Their restaurants have incredible beach views.

The beachside pool is nice but small for a resort of this size (but with the ocean right there, does it really matter?). You can rent all your beach gear there, as well as take a surf or scuba lesson. Cabanas (they call them bungalows) by the pool are $150 per day with ceiling fan, hdtv and cooler of water. Casabella chairs (with retractable shade) by the beach are $75. Dinners by the beach start at $355 per couple. We love the three firepits they added to the courtyard (especially the one by the beach for a sunset view) where there is often entertainment in the evenings.

Sheraton has a mandatory resort fee of $30 per day, which includes self-parking (a long walk), free local calls, internet, room safe, cultural activities, first night valet parking, fitness classes and a few other doodads. Valet parking is $10. When picking a room, this is one of those places where it’s worth the extra money to spring for an ocean view. Rates are $529–$749. Suites (820–1,310 sq. ft.) are $1,099–$1,299. Specials and packages available.

What Readers Have to Say

“I have to write this email to you to tell you how absolutely greatful we are for your Ultimate Kauai Guidebook. It completely made our vacation!! I purchased the book in early August after we had booked an eight-day stay on the island and had read it cover to cover before departing for our trip. Throughout our time on the island, I kept the book with me, and not too long into the trip, referred to it as if it were our Bible. I don’t even know where to begin…it was all so helpful. Restauraunt reviews were accurate and reliable… The beaches….being a maniacal beach-bum myself, I was most impressed and pleased with the information that we had regarding beaches… And the hiking!!!! Great views, as you know and great directions… I could go on and on and have so much to be thankful to you for. Your wisdom and knowledge is invaluable and made our vacation in Kauai most memorable, and as we have often referred to it, “the best vacation ever!!!”
