This hotel was very elegant and classy. Staff were so kind and engaging. The room size and lay out were wonderful. Just an overall beautiful resort with an excellent location.

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.

The service was very good--when we asked for hot water to make tea (only a Nespresso machine in the room) they sent an electric kettle, an assortment of tea, and mugs up to the room within minutes. The bartender at the restaurant bar was also really nice and the drinks were excellent (resort prices but sizeable!) The only things I didn't like: the furniture looked worn in the room, though everything was clean; and you're required to valet your car for an extra fee per day ($25). The pool is small (nice though) so the loungers around it fill up fast, but there's not much that can be done about that.
