    I recommend this hotel.

    The food was absolutely delicious, and I truly enjoyed the complimentary lei making and ukulele classes. Snorkeling in the sea right in front of the hotel felt safe and exciting. Plus, the staff's kindness made my stay incredibly relaxing, allowing me to rest comfortably.

    Wonderful stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Lihue

    What a stay!! Excellent service, and so friendly. The food was exceptional and the staff couldn’t be more friendly and professional. I am a flight attendant and stay in A LOT of hotels, and this one was in my tops, hands down. It was clean, comfortable, and an overall amazing experience. The concierge, was super helpful and helped us setup a bunch of activities to do during our stay. 5 stars, would highly recommend and would most definitely stay here again. Mahalo

    Wailua River and Ocean View

    The hotel Greeter, Kurt, was personable and accommodating. Very good impression. At the Front Desk, kudos to Wanda for securing me a beachfront view of the bay, and to Tawni who was pleasant and helpful. Mamahume's Tiki Bar served the best Ahi poke in the island. There is an archeological site next to the hotel that served as a sanctuary to all. The Wailua River Cruise was just across the street, and the airport was less than 10 minutes away. Looking forward to returning again.
