Castle Kiahuna Plantation & Beach Bungalows

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

We've been coming to the Kiahuna Plantation on our yearly Hawaii trip for the past 40 years. We have loved to watched our children and grandchildren develop their swimming skills and spend all day in the Poipu Beach. I am always amazed on how little the hotel has changed and how well the hotel has been maintained. We had a great time in our new ocean view room this year . Aloha

Our son decided to go to Hawaii for his wedding and we booked our stay. The price was right, the location was great. Tons to do at the resort and locally. The Coconut, Macadamia Nut, Banana Pancakes with Syrup were great at the golf course. The rooms were very open and the staff took great care of our needs.

We had stayed here before as have several of our friends. Our condo was very clean and comfortable BUT it was tired and dated. The furniture was in poor shape and the bed was too soft and uncomfortable. The hotel staff was eager too please but the other condos they showed us were not in that much better condition They placed a piece of plywood between the mattress and that solved the problem The grounds are beautiful and we had our best meal of the trip at the Plantation restaurant. Management needs to inspect the condos and bring them up to standard.

We only stayed at the Kiahuana Plantation Hotel for one night at the end of our vacation but it was a comfortable and cute place to stay. The room would've been a great place to stay for a few more days with all of the amenities of an apartment (fridge, stove, patio). The room was very clean and had nice updates - beautiful shower!! The grounds are very nice and the location is great. Would recommend.

This resort met all my requirements and more. The condo was larger than expected, provided beach toys, cooler and the kitchen was well stocked. King Bed was comfortable. NOTE: NO AIR CONDITIONING IN ANY UNITS. Fans are in the room to help circulate air and make the room cooler. Temperature was tolerable since we weren't in the room much. Be ready to live with a few bugs. Units were sprayed for bugs while we were there and that helped. Otherwise great value for the money.

We were here for our anniversary. We loved all the room we had in the condo. It felt like our own little home with beautiful views of gardens and huge trees. Hotel is kept clean inside and the grounds our perfectly landscaped. It was nice having a full kitchen and BBQ to cook on. Can't beat the beach access to Poipu, water is perfect and snorkeling is so fun. This place doesn't make you feel like your in a hotel room because of all the space in the condo and outside. Perfect beaches for kids too. Awesome value.

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