"Even before arriving, we had excellent communication from the owner of the property who couldn't have been more helpful, even providing suggestions for logistics, shopping and children's activities. The local property manager was also incredibly helpful and available at all times. The property itself is perfectly maintained, had high end appliances, comfortable beds and an incredible view of the water and golf course at Pukalani. The golf course crew starts mowing and blowing around 5:30 am daily, so if you like to sleep beyond that, plan on closing the doors and windows at night and placing the A/C on. I personally don't like A/C, but it was a very good system, quiet, efficient and not blowing on your face while sleeping. The location was perfect for Kauai, centrally located and a great base of operations to access the whole island. We went to a different beach each day with never more than an hour drive and of course there are beautiful beaches very close by as well! Not to mention a great pool on the Marriott property itself. At the pool, they had a daily happy hour with food, cocktails or both and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. It was also very nice that there were gas grills on the property for guest use, each with a table/umbrella and running water. We grilled out a couple of nights and it was very nice and a great way to socialize with other guests too. All in all, we had a great time at Pukalani and can't recommend this particular property enough! We will certainly be back!! Mahalo, Ron!!"
