In July, we stayed at KBC in an Ocean View 1BR on the 5th floor, above the tile cutting tent. It was noisy, but we weren't in the room that much. KBC is centrally located, but we'll stay in Princeville or Poipu next time. Turtles come to rest overnight at Poipu Beach after sunset.
Usually not bad. The prevailing wind is from the North, so what you have are landing aircraft that isn't as bad as to the North. The helicopters are worse. They start mid morning and they take off going south and can be noisy.
I am very upset with Marriott's performance when the power went out at the Kauai Beach Club. My beef with Marriott is that I am not convinced that the Marriott was paying attention to the generator. MVC told us that it was the Sonesta that failed since they control the generator. That is an easy answer, and most people will buy it.
The Marriott team has a responsibility to manage the Sonesta employees that manage the generators that supply the Sonesta and MVC.
Here's the why. MVC represents us (MVC Customers) to the Sonesta. What that means is that the Marriott has a responsibility to monitor the Sonesta's performance to ensure that MVC customers have electricity 24/7365. More specifically, the Marriott should have their own expert monitoring the equipment. I say this because I asked 4 different Marriot employees and they all said that the Sonesta owns the generator. No one mentioned that the Marriott has an Engineer onsite that monitors the generators.
But.... What the Marriot failed to do is to fallow the basic rule which is "Trust but Verify". For example, there must be maintenance records. Does the Marriott monitor the data from the generator? Does the Marriott monitor the maintenance of the generator?
Lastly. I am thankful that no one was hurt and that no one was stuck in an elevator (uses the other generator), or had to climb many flights of stairs).
