Have you stayed at Kapaa Shores? Here's your chance to tell other owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before your left home?

We went there end of July-beginning of August 2017. Resort is nice, right on the ocean. Every room as an ocean view. There is no air conditioning in the rooms. We arrived and I guess they had just ran the dishwasher as it was miserable in the room and never really recovered. That is the biggest drawback of this resort. We knew ahead of time but figured, so it's a little hot? It was miserable. 85-90 degrees and 80-85% humidity. Laying in bed sweating and trying to fall asleep. They have ceiling fans and a few other fans in the unit which help but not enough in my opinion. It's like that all over the island so it's not like Worldmark is holding out. If you are heat sensitive, and if you are you know what I mean, this may not be the resort for you. We will not be going back just for this reason. No AC in restaurants or anywhere else that we found besides grocery stores. There is usually a breeze(warm)blowing in which is great but it stopped one night for about an hour and WOW was it hot. Our dishwasher went out on day 1 and they did not fix it while we there which was a drag having dirty dishes every day. 2 different times we arranged to be out of out unit early so they could do it and when we came back they hadn't done it but they had been in our unit and shut off all of the fans leaving the unit miserable for the rest of the day. Very disappointed in the staff for that. Otherwise the staff is great. Best part of the resort is NO SALES PITCH!
The island itself is green and beautiful. There are river activities like tours and kayaking. Lots of hikes. There is a tubing adventure where you float on a tube down the man made canals that used to water the fields. It's laid back and fun. ZIP Lining, dinner cruises and snorkeling. There was no SNUBA that I could find so if that is something you like I don't believe you will find it.
Lots of good dining within walking distance. Olympic Café is casual with very good food.
Just a laid back place to go. Small pool with zero shade. Hot tub which you really can't use unless you like it real hot. You have to drive to get to swimmable ocean as the ocean at the resort is off limits. Very rocky and rough. Beaches are great but you need to get there early if your going to the popular ones on the North of the island as there is extremely limited parking. We went mid morning to Tunnels beach and Haena beach park and couldn't park anywhere and had to come back down to one of the other beaches. Tunnels beach has the best snorkeling so you want to get up early if that is where you are going.

There are a few options close, Lydgate is close but our favorites were further north Anini Beach is a great one.

We stayed at Kapaa Shores about a year ago. Great location. Grocery store/Safeway about 1 block away. In the strip mall part of the Safeway there is an ice cream place serving Tropical Dreams Ice cream, it is the best ice cream ever and makes for a nice evening stroll. It is made on the Big Island. Units are good, there is no air conditioning, but did not bother us too much. Some of the units have a direct ocean view, we were blessed to have one. No elevators. We enjoyed our stay and are going back next year.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone have any current reviews of Kapaa shores ?
Checking to see if anyone knows how many units there are in total, whether they are studios and 1 bedrooms and whether they face the ocean.
Also how far from the ocean is the resort ?

At Kapa'a Shores 11/18 to 11/25/ 2015. Very big storm came through for days with 95% humidity and 85 degrees by day/75 degrees coolest at night. Cannot sleep without air conditioning! This place has no air conditioning - beware! Nice property, nice rooms but everything is wet from humidity - couch, bed, floors, counters - so mold smell is strong. When you get out of shower you cannot dry. Hot tub works perectly, pool is nice. Would be perfect property with air conditioning.

We just got back from staying at Kapaa Shores and we were really pleased with the staff and definitely the location of the resort. However, the lack of air conditioning was a little uncomfortable. After traveling a whole day to get there and being a little on the cranky side already made the heat even more unbearable! If you are planning on staying there I would recommend a unit that is directly facing the ocean. We had an ocean view but were perpendicular to the water so we barely had any breeze at all. We were in a 2 bedroom unit so the master bedroom was upstairs with only 2 vent windows on the front of the unit, no air could even pass through up there so it was at least 10 degrees warmer than downstairs.

Loved it. Just loved it. We were assigned room 302 and had a lovely ocean view. The room lacked ac and it never quite cooled off, but it was so nice. The room was clean, nice grounds, responsive staff.

Maybe I'm jaded because before Kapaa Shore we stayed at Worldmark's Valle Isle in Maui for a week. That place, what a complete and total dump. We were assigned the dreaded room 102 at Vale Isle. So our transtion was like moving up from a Motel 6 in Maui to the Ritz in Kauai.

Kapaaaaah. So nice. Aloha.

We are at KAPPA SHORE right now and we love this place. Peaceful and relaxing. The condos are great. Clean and spacious. The ocean view is spectacular from any vantage point. Plenty to do on this breath taking island
Definitely would come back
