Looking for a great family friendly hotel on the beach on Kauai?

Ocean fun

Ocean fun

Consider the Sheraton Kauai Resort!! Even better, it’s in Poipu on the sunny side of the island. It is about a 25 minute drive from the airport. We have stayed at all of the large resorts on Kauai and the Sheraton Kauai Resort is by far our favorite for families. Whether staying on the garden side or the ocean front side of the hotel, the rooms are all very spacious and renovated to include the Heavenly beds.

Sheraton Kauai Resort offers an oceanfront Aulii Luau, including a Hawaiian buffet and entertainment by Kauai’s most talented and award-winning musicians and dancers. The food includes several appetizers, salads and an assortment of raw ahi “poke”, traditional lau lau (pork in a wrapped taro leaf), kalua pork (cooked underground), local fish, marinated beef and island guava rub chicken.

Sheraton Pool

The pool is medium-sized and not too crowded as many people would prefer to swim in the ocean. Pool attendants walk around and give guests frozen yogurt pops while enjoying the sun.

Exploring on the beach

Exploring on the beach

The pool is located adjacent to the ocean, offering easy access to both. There is a large grassy area where the kids can run around, play or do gymnastics as our daughter does. Whether exploring sea creatures in the rocks or collecting shells, Poipu is the perfect beach for kids. Poipu Beach was named the #1 Beach by Doc Beach in USA TODAY and the #1 Best Family Beach by the TRAVEL CHANNEL.

Our kids favorite thing is to order a fresh smoothie each day poolside. It’s great for parents as well, as you can sit back and relax with a cocktail or read a book while the kids swim. There are lounge chairs with umbrellas for shade if you get to the pool early enough. The hot tub is large, surrounded by lava rocks and offers a view of the ocean. The pool is surrounded by palm trees swaying in the wind.

Cabana

Cabana

Looking for a private cabana on the sand? The cabanas are available for rent for $50 per day. They seat two people, face the ocean and have retractable shade. This is a great option for couples but not convenient if you have kids who will be in the pool, as the pool is located behind the cabanas.

Poolside dining

The Sheraton offers beach and poolside bungalows which are great for those of you who prefer the shade or are in a large group! The bungalows include flat screen TVs, remote controls, ceiling fans, seating for six, ice chest with ice and bottled waters plus your own person pool server. You can order food and drinks and have them delivered right to your own personal bungalow.  The bungalows are a fabulous way to relax. You can pull your lounge chair out in front of the bungalow if you want sun and then move back inside for shade. Be advised that the bungalows do close at 5 p.m. which we found to be quite early.

Rum Fire~ Love Rum Fire!!! It’s the perfect place for families or a romantic evening out.  We have dined at Rum Fire in Waikiki on Oahu and loved it. So when it came to Kauai, we were thrilled of course!!!  Enjoy 180-degree ocean views from all of its 240 seats. The circular bar is made of a swirled marble with cobalt blue, glass lights hanging from above. They have large booths which look out to the ocean where you can enjoy a wonderful sunset. Rum Fire Poipu Beach is open from 5:30-9:30 p.m. Enjoy the fire pits outside while waiting for your reservation.

Lavas on the Beach~ Lava’s is great for families as they offer Keiki “kids” meals.

Lava’s is exactly how you would picture a poolside cafe & bar. They have Hawaiian music playing, guests dine in their pool attire, while enjoying the open air environment. Lava’s is open from sunrise to sunset.

Money Saving Tips: The rooms located on the garden side of the hotel are cheaper. Some of the rooms, located on the upper floors, still offer a distant ocean view. The rooms are very nice and a short walking distance to the ocean and main pool area. Stop off at Wal-Mart on the way to the hotel and grab inter-tubes for $2.00 to use in the ocean or pool. If you are traveling with another family, split the cost of the bungalow. When we stayed at the resort they were $100 per bungalow per day which can be worth the money if you plan to spend the entire day at the pool.

  1. […] While the Hyatt is one of our favorite resorts on island, this blog is all about how to travel on budget. Explore your options, as there are many condos and homes to rent in Poipu as well as other hotels which are not as expensive. We love the Sheraton Kauai Resort due to the family-friendly environment and, most importantly, they have a great beach for boogie boarding and body surfing right next to the pool. The hotel will book up far in advance for the marathon weekend. Check out our post on the Sheraton Kauai Resort at https://5wheelsto5star.com/2014/01/18/sheraton-kauai-resort/ […]
