Ha: I can see the encroaching jungle outside, to take it back over!

Here's a couple shots from when my in-laws were there in February 1987.

Wish they'd taken more. That sink basin is amazing.

WestAdad,

Nice photos! I wish there were more as well. That pic of cottage on the Wailua river looks great.

I have this postcard showing a BIG clam shell sink.



They were standard in most of the rooms.

Thanks DC, I've got a small album of pictures they took on their trip. Sadly most of them are your typical touristy shots. I'm trying to decide which ones may be good here on TC.

Those basins are simply amazing.

Mahalo,

Chris

I really like how you've taken current pics and added the Blue Hawaii screenshots. The one shot where Jack and Miss Prentiss are walking along the lagoon has a canoe in the lagoon. The person sitting in the front of the canoe helping to paddle was the famous singer, Patti Page, who just happened to be staying at the hotel. She also would get on stage and sing with Larry Rivera. Sadly, she passed away last month.

Aloha

A nice drink menu from the Coconut Palace I spotted on ebay a while back.

Note again the purposeful absence of Tiki mugs - the pc island way

doesn't add much to the history or architecture, but this is a card in my collection:

"The CONCH SHELL sounds on the Historic Grounds of the COCO PALM in legend-steeped Wailau, were Kauai's Ancient Kings held Court.

the COCO PALMS HOTEL

Island of Kauai, Hawaii"

I loved the tour! Even though much of it focused on Elvis and his times there, which I wasn't that into, I still got to walk the grounds and imagine how sweet it was back in the day.

Lagoon from the parking lot.


The Tiki Bar. Yes, it was called that!


It was a beautiful day for pictures.


Main lobby.


Looking down the drive from the original entrance.


It is $20 for the tour, but well worth it, IMO.
But free on Fridays with a local I.D.
