Banyan Harbor

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very comfortable for 4 adults. We had a two bedroom condo. It is not on the beach but within walking distance to a nice beach. Centrally located on the island to see both the north and south attractions. Make sure you visit the botanical gardens and the wiamea canyon. Go early as it fogs over in the afternoon

I spent a week in a two bedroom condo with my kids. We had lots of room and loved the washer & dryer. The kitchen had everything we could need for eating at home. The AC was delightful when it was hot at night. The property is located close to a nice beach and shops/ places to eat. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Overall it was a great experience.

Good value nice area but our room D50 was besode highway. Very noisy. I had to wear earplugs...gas fumes if you opened patio door so it stayed closed. Needs updating but had everything needed. Lots of room 2 bedrooms 1.5 bathrooms.

We enjoyed our stay at Banyan Harbor. We had a two-bed, two-bath suite with kitchen & living room. Perfect for two couples, and very reasonably priced. The kitchen was well equipped with just about everything we needed--and more. I think there was even a waffle iron. Our unit was on the ground floor and near the entrance, so it was a short walk to the beach.

Great spacious home like atmosphere. Great location. Lots of amenities. Includes full kitchen and laundry. Friendly staff. Lots of balconies. Walkable distance to beach parks, harbor and food courts.

Great unit 2 story three balconies A/c fans kitchen 2 flat screen tv. Stop whining and enjoy your fantasy on the island of Kauai

Great price and location. Staff was pleasant. Stayed in Building "G" ... not so great view (looking at Building "A")

Good price. Close to good surf and eats. Close to the airport and other points of interest.

This location was a great midpoint to all the major tourist and non tourist spots around the island. There is still a bit of a drive though, considering it's a large island.

Excellent Must have a rental car Excursions don't provide transportation from hotel

We stayed here a couple of nights before our timeshare check in. Nice place.

Great value!!! My wife and I were super impressed with this hotel.

We hiked all over the island so having this condo in the middle of the island's highway was perfect. We were never more than an hour away from either the Canyon in the West, the Na Pali Coast in the North or anything in between. The full kitchen was amazing for cutting down on restaurant visits. Also a huge thumbs up to the staff for washing our clothes every day for us while our washer/dryer was being fixed. The only weakness is the internet speed, but hey we didn't come to surf the web.

We were hikers so we went all over the island. Since this was in the center of the highway system it was perfect. Also the staff was very accommodating when our washing machine stopped working. They washed our clothes for us each night. Full kitchen was a monster plus to cut down on eating out as well. Only downside is internet being fairly slow.

Very convenience resort with full kitchen and washing machine and dryer in unit.

Bigger and nicer than we were expecting! Full kitchen with all the supplies you need to cook a full meal. Nice home away from home.

Very convenient to the airport. We flew in late after the office was closed. The night watchman came promptly and could not have been more helpful! Very comfortable, clean, roomy place for a family. I admit I was concerned because I felt like it was almost too good of a deal. I kept my fingers crossed and was not disappointed at all!

We reserved this place many months in advance and got an excellent deal, so I'm hesitant to complain since with what we paid we got reasonably good value. That said, I don't think we'd stay here again. It's right across the road from the container shipping & cruise ship dock. Between activity there and all of the other general activity + traffic, it was very noisy. Lots of diesel-engine and beeping back-wards bus kinds of sounds at all hours of the day and night. The condo itself was alright, albeit small, but the kitchen didn't have everything we needed (couldn't find a spatula for flipping burgers on the grill and the can opener was nearly unusable). It didn't even have basic spices like salt and pepper. We struggled with ants several times (though they came and sprayed when we asked) and the dryer vented directly in to the bathroom instead of outside (talk about muggy!!). We were also surprised that the second bathroom only had a toilet, so instead of having a master bath we had to share the only shower/bathtub with the kids. Ugh. Terrible cable reception on the TVs too. Kitchen appliances were all old - lots of rust on the side of the fridge and the coil stove burners were imbalanced so you couldn't possibly fry an egg straight (suppose I'm spoiled by my flat-top at home). On the plus side, it's centrally located so roughly equidistant to both the north-east coast of the island and the canyon, etc. on the western side. The staff all seemed nice enough and they had plenty of beach/pool toys, and towels to borrow. The property's pool and grill area were all well maintained. They had a good selection of movies to borrow and even had a library (we didn't use it, unfortunately - didn't discover it until check-out). The best part was that nobody tried to pitch us on getting a timeshare there. That was a first (we've stayed on every other Hawaiian island and they ALL seem to insist on trying to talk you in to a purchase at some point). The moral of the story: you get what you pay for.

Only stayed 1 night but was very happy with the quality and price.

I was pleasantly surprised with this booking. For the price, the room was quite large. There was lots of room space to walk around. It even had a balcony that overlooked the ocean. The room was very clean and the king size bed was comfortable. It even was close to numerous restaurants/bar and grills. Though the amenities are not 4/5 star, I highly recommend as one of the places to stay in Kauai for the budget minded traveler.
