Landscaping and location were great. The unit itself was spacious and comfortable, but a little weathered and not luxurious.

The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. We opted to pay for the garden view paradise and it was a very nice view. The access to the water and shopping are a giant plus. The sunsets from the lawn are beautiful. Swap your beach towels as much as you need. The grounds were vey quiet. No A/C which made it a little warm on one night but not an issue the rest of the time. This was October and not as warm as summer. We would stay here again no question.

Didn’t like the location of their pool... being offsite. Overall nice place though.

Great location for our itinerary! The condo was well appointed and comfortable!

Great sandy beach for swimming, surfing, and snorkeling. Towels, chairs, and chaises available for no charge. Room was dark and uncomfortable. Shutters on the doors and windows for cooling, but were told to keep shut for security reasons. Amenities were inconvenient with no car. Pool and fitness center more than a quarter mile walk across a busy street. Exorbitant $160 cleaning fee on top of resort fees on top of room rate.

Beautiful condo in the PERFECT location. Had everything we could have ever wanted (except A.C.).

Nice resort in Poipu. Lovely grounds. Large resort on beach. Closer to beach the higher the price of the unit. One bedroom unit - nice comfortable clean room with kitchen, dining area, lanai. Unit a little worn. Door hard to close. Shower weak. Got a very good price with third party. With Castle you get daily maid svc and free use of a very nice health club across road Adding pluses and minuses this was a great value; resorts in this location cost at least twice what I paid.

First no A/C . I paid for a garden view and what I got was patchy grass ,tried to rent our snorkel equipment on site but they were out . The staff are awesome ,but this is a older place and being on the 3rd floor with no elevator gets old quick

Stayed here for our honeymoon. Loved the room, location and amenities. Even though there was no air conditioning in the rooms, the fans were fine since we were by the beach. Everything is close by and the beaches were just stunning. The room had everything we needed to keep us comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Grounds were clean. I'd come back again.

Terrific beach in front of the hotel and walking distance to Poipu Beach. Beautifully landscaped grounds. Older but extremely well maintained buildings. 24-hour desk is a plus.

We stayed at the Castle side of Kiahuna Plantation (owned condos) for only $149+ a night and it was beautiful! Very well cared for unit with kitchen(appliances & dishes) & large balcony, linens, maid service, even boogie boards. No AC, but island breeze blows through..very comfortable. Also nearby coffee hut, shopping and restaurants..all within walking. Shop at grocery in East Koloa to stock kitchen. On site laundry. Beautiful, lush manicured grounds. Resort has perfect secluded little oceanfront bay with bright reef fish. Sheraton Auli'i luau is next door. Definitely returning!

Was here for 9nights/10days. Just a walk to the beach since its right in the back/front? Aside from waking up to birds and sprinklers every morning, we have no major complaints. Shopping plaza right across and few mins to restaurants and Kuikuia? Plaza (spelled wrong im sure). Great views on beach for sunsets.

Our flight arrangements put us in Kauai a day early before our planned vacation was to start. I thought I found a good deal with this place. I had to prepay the full amount when the reservation was made however when we arrived and were checking in we were charged an additional $50 cleaning fee. In full disclosure when I pulled out the Orbitz reservation the clerk was able to point out in the "fine print" where the additional cleaning fee was noted. I'm not sure who to be more displeased with Kiahuna Plantation or Orbitz. I guess it depends on who decided bury the cleaning fee disclaimer in the fine print. The room was ok, definitely needed updating. The refrigerator door was rusted on all edges, the bathroom shower was not clean, especially around the window where there was about an inch of dust. All the while making me question what I was paying the extra cleaning fee for. Was it really for cleaning or just a way to make additional money on the reservation. I would not stay at Kiahuna Plantation again as I feel their rate structure is dishonest and misleading. Additionally I have been an Orbtiz user for years and due to this experience I may not use Orbitz again either.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved the spacious room! It is walking distance to the beach as well as a few nice restaurants across the street. Easy to drive to many sight-seeing spots and farmers markets!

Second stay at Kiahuna Planation but first time through Castle. This one was substantially upgraded in kitchen and floor tiles. The daily towel service is great and unobtrusive. Grounds are very well kept. Right in the midst of all activities and good shopping.

Excellent time there. Lovely setting, comfy rooms though older, nice to be near the ocean and Poipu area, shops etc. Room was well equipped, nice lanai. Staff friendly. Only objection is the quite high cleaning fee, paid separately (though we did know that in advance) . Swimming pool is nearby but not on the property but is very pleasant, with full exercise facilities.

I really loved this property! It was so friendly and homey. Great location! I was surprised there was no air conditioning though.

- friendly staff - rooms are not so clean, the same the resort premises - cover bed sheeting dirty and unchanged, same think for couch. - in rest everything OK

Sorry to hear you found our property inconvenient. Yes, we are very spread out over 33 acres, and a car helps..
