Along the ocean in sunny Poipu is the Sheraton Kauai. Perfectly placed right on amazing Poipu Beach with fine white sand and good surf (ideal for novices), the beach makes this resort the ideal location to stay. One of the great things about the Sheraton Kauai is that with 394 rooms, it's on the smaller side of being an elaborate resort, but still offers top quality decor and amenities.

The island-style decor makes it relaxed yet still high-end, and each room has a private lanai (porch) to enjoy the views. The hotel was one of the last to reopen after suffering the devastating effects of Hurricane Iniki, and was elegantly redecorated and refurbished, but without going over the top. A perfect choice for a family hotel, it has two freshwater pools. One is practically right on the beach and has a hot tub, while the other is in the garden area and is surrounded by koi ponds and a waterfall.

Onsite are two restaurants, childcare, a spa and rentals for beach gear. The resort is placed in close proximity to several beautiful Kauai attractions such as Spouting Horn, the National Tropical Botanical Gardens and the Tunnel of Trees. Prices vary greatly between seasons, so if you're flexible on dates, look at various times to book.
