Great location, comfortable room,clean, trade winds kept the room very comfortable , nice beach

We generally don't spend a lot of time in our room, this hotel met all of our desires. The decor was a little dated, but very clean and well maintained. Our room was in the garden area, but just a short walk to the beach. We were on the third floor, the breeze through the room made for great sleeping.

A Great Place for Families with Kids!

Pros: Close restaurants
We love Kiahuna Plantation. We stayed here years ago before kids and now we brought the kids who are 10 and 12. They loved it here too. It's not a posh resort, it can get noisy because a lot of families stay here. It is comfortable, neat and clean. A short walk from beautiful Poipu for beach time and snorkeling. You can get your beach chairs and towels right at the hut. The orchid garden is lovely, the grounds spacious. Enjoy having a full size kitchen for breakfast and a nice sized lanai to sit out on and enjoy the Hawaiian air. Like the shopping center across the street. Roy's restaurant is amazing and we probably spent way too much time and $ at Keoki's Paradise. Rent movies through Red Box at the Whaler's General Store for after dinner or take advantage of the free Wi-Fi at the Starbucks. We made ourselves at home for 9 days and would return!

The staff was very friendly and helpful

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
My wife and I stayed for a week. The condo was clean and well-kept. Our condo overlooked a garden, about two blocks from the beach. We didn't mind the short walk to the water since it was through the lush garden. There is always a breeze and this makes the room very comfortable. We were on the second floor.I would recommend the second or third floor, both for the view and the cooling breeze. Enjoyable stay!

Good location, beach right outside hotel, friendly staff. Not a 4 star facility, more like 3 star.

Pros: beach access, towel service at pool/beach, in-room fridge., proxemity to wailua kapaa etc.
Cons: cruise ship clients not sophisticated crowd
Room was clean, decent gym, we were upgraded to ocean view for no extra cost. staff was friendly. Facilities were adequate in every way, but given that Aston is half the price w/comparable accomodtions, it's hard to justify paying double. Bad thing was that other rooms on our floor wereing painted during our stay. Also, staff was secretly spraying some chemical bug spray without ever asking our permission to enter our room and so so. We happen to catch them in the process and insist they skip our room. That seemed shadey.

Nice atmosphere

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
This is a great family place as there are very large open grassy areas where kids can congregate and play. It is right at the beach so not far to walk to the ocean. The staff is very friendly and helpful in organizing day trips and accomodating our needs. We did not venture too far away because we did not need to. Great restaurants adn shopping close by, but we chose to cook and barbecue at our condo. This greatly helped in keeping the expensive cost of a Hawaiil vacation down. I think this would be a great facility to organize a family reunion.

helpful staff, beautiful grounds, easy access to stores

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, flowers trees birds
Cons: No free Internet
We loved the magnificent trees/flowers/esp the moir orchid gardens and large grassy areas by the ocean w/ a little shop that gave us lawn chairs and towels each day. The staff is very friendly and helpful and lots of shops and restaurants right across the street. Gorgeous setting, cozy place...we hated to leave. thanks so much for making a great package deal. The only negative was no hi-speed in the room but we could use computers by the front desk at 25 cents/minute to check out email.

the hotel was great for location to beaches and shopping as well as places to eat. I did not think the view was very good for an ocean view

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: no breakfasts
The trip was great and I would return to the hotel; I would not, however, ever fly Alaska Airlines again as their staff was rude.

we loved this place!

Pros: Quiet, best swimming beach, daily towel service if requested
Cons: No free Internet, some units are outdated
our first unit was wonderful. although come the 2nd night the unit above ours had a massive plumbing issue rendering our unit unsafe to use. the security man on duty immediately showed up to fix what he could and the front desk was ready to move us to a new unit immediately. being it was 1:30 in the morning we opted to wait until the morning. after looking at 2 other units we found an acceptable new unit and they tranfered us to another GREAT unit w/ a wonderful view of the ocean! the 2 concierges were absolulately wonderful and a huge help for finding local dives to eat at, and for things to keep us occupied. hubby wasn't fond of the lack of air conditioning, but come on!, its hawaii!!! just open the shutters and let the fresh air in....it was wonderful! the beds in both unit were more comfortable than ours and we hated to leave them. if we ever go back to kaua'i, we will be staying at this resort!!!
