Haven’t been to the Westin but have been to both islands including the Sheraton in Kauai. When I was in the big island we bounced around a lot. There is much more you can drive long distances to on the big island. Worth staying a night in Volcano house to spend some time

Sheraton Kauai is really close to Poipu beach which is absolutely gorgeous and almost daily had some monk seals and turtles hanging on the beach. It was my favorite beach of the two islands. Kauai also has Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali coast.

I realize I’m not saying much about the hotel and amenities but it’s because we really didn’t spend a ton of time at the resort since there is so much to do on both of those islands.

Mauna Kea or bust on the big island. Great platinum breakfast and best beach on the island. You should get an upgrade too depending on time of year
