This place is probably much better in the summer if you want to surf than Hanalei because you can surf as I mentioned right on the beach.

The grounds are gorgeous and the athletic club is close with a wonderful pool and waterslide and beautiful facilities.

The beach nearby is lovely and the reserved chairs/loungers on the grass are great for staying out of the sand.

Perfect place in Poipu Beach”

We stayed at Kiahuna Plantation for 4 nights as part of a week on Kauai. It was the perfect place in the South Shore for us. The suite/apartment was large with a full kitchen and was quiet and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and provide easy walks to the beach. It's also an easy walk to Starbucks in the morning. What more could one ask for?

Perfect for surf loving, beach going families in the summer”

This place sits right on the beach. Perfect for surfing families with a beach break for learners right in front of the grounds as well as a wonderful break for more advance surfers just to the left of the plantation resort. There’s snorkling right at the beach as well as at poi pu beach along with a small baby beach as mentioned in many reviews. The grounds are gorgeous and the athletic club is close with a wonderful pool and waterslide and beautiful facilities. Perfect for families! Our room was very nice plantation style with an open floor plan. This place is probably much better in the summer if you want to surf than Hanalei because you can surf as I mentioned right on the beach.

Great place! Would definitely stay here again.”

I loved this location! The beach in front of the property was so lovely and it was a 5 minute walk to Poipu Beach Park. The grounds were beautiful and the staff friendly. Only downside is not having a pool on the grounds. You had to across the street to the Poipu Athletic Club. Super close proximity to the shopping villa which was nice.

Grounds, beach, location

Everything was fine except NO TENNIS COURTS OR SWIMMING POOL AVAILABLE! Simple courtesy from management would dictate informing guests in advance of problems with tennis court and pool access. We have stayed at Kiahuna Plantation many times and this is first time we have been disappointed.

Beach Front, Nice restaurantsand close to shops

I did expect a bit more as photos on the website were different then the real thing, but Poipu is amazing and the location of the hotel makes up for everything else. I guess because it's a time sharing time of resort the condos are a bit outdated and the pool was closed and there was no air con. All that said I just loved the beach and the area. Kauai is paradise,so I just had to get stepout of the hotel and enjoy the outdoors.

Great--but pricey!”

We loved the condo--well equipped, huge lanai--great views, manicured property with amazing trees. The beach nearby is lovely and the reserved chairs/loungers on the grass are great for staying out of the sand. The only negative is that you MUST read the small print with Agoda. I did not realize the nightly price did not include a $167 cleaning fee--so what was supposed to be a place for us to crash after our flight before switching to our hotel, became a $500/night stay. We thought the place was lovely, but not for $500/night. If you are staying longer than one night, the cleaning fee would be more reasonable!

Great place”

We stayed there 6 nights in Nov 2019. The whole area consists of more than a dozen houses with each approx. 10 condos and is very clean and high-class. Direct beach access, high quality good food, 24h reception, everything vey well-maintained. Pool is not inside the housing complex but separately administrated on the other side of the main street, closes already at 7 pm.. Nearby there are shopping possibilities as well. Depending on where your condo is it takes quite some time to go there. Our condo was on the outer side of the complex, near by the main street. We had to use ear protection in order to keep sleeping in the morning when the street gets busy. Condo itself was in a good condition, fans, big balcony, no A/C. Daily house keeping can be booked separately but it not mandatory. We did not book it. Final cleaning costs are 160 USD (!!) for a stay for up to 9 days. In general clearly a recommendation, but rather expensive.

Awful resort (units with no A/C - Deluxe Garden View) in summer time (Rm 238).”

Don't! I repeat, DON'T! (hope the ! will get to you) rent this place during summer time (units with no A/C). There is no a/c, which we knew, but with Kauai's 90+F temperature, the unit we stayed at - 238 - was a torture. It's super hot, despite the fact that we opened up everything to get the wind draft going (there's NONE!), and with 6 fans going on, the unit is actually hotter than the parking lot outside. Notice that this is 2nd of the 3 story building. Poipu Shopping Village (a pretty dead mall now) is close, and so is on-site restaurant (no discount), but you can smell the smoke from all the eateries around, and that's bad with the heat problem. Laundry is far away (we need to drive, or walk 10 minutes up/down a slope in 90+F weather), and is located close to Castle's front desk. Athletic club is far too from our unit (10 min/foot). Driving to Poipu Beach is about 5 minutes from 238 (walk about 20 min)...we were hoping to walk to the beach :( DON'T rent in summer!

Annoying extra costs, nice room and facilities ”

The hotel is located in a cluster of hotels next to the beach so a lot of people and crowded with buildings but if you like that thing it is really nice. You have access to tennis courts gym and and more for "free" which is really nice. Although free is not really free when you have to pay 160 dollars (!) extra in cleaning fee. That was REALLY ANNOYING and took away a lot of the nice feeling of staying at this hotel.

If you're dependant on air conditioning, I wouldn't recommend this hotel, but if you like the fresh air (warm, humid, cool, dry, breezy, whatever!) then you will have no issues with the hotel. The pool is across the road, but with the beach so close and the grounds so gorgeous, there's no reason to cross that road except to get delicious coffee!

Annoying facility Issues that interfered with my valuable vacation time”

Pros - decent location, full kitchen and deck. Cons - tv setup; we had to call tech for help getting the tv to work. Breadfruit (I think) fell out of the tree in front on the complex on a daily basis. The fruit was cleaned up daily but made big messes on the sidewalk. We had a plumbing issue from the (loud) people in the condo above us. The plumbing issue was handled professionally, but we had to wait for the plumber to get there which damaged our plans. Went to the beach and when we came back to the room our key wouldn’t work. The battery on the door lock had died and was fixed promptly, but it was another annoying waste of precious vacation time.

If you don’t mind not having air conditioning then this is a great place. However at times bugs get into the room. The rooms are also outdated. On the plus side there are many mango trees around the area where the ripe mangos fall to the ground and you can eat them. They were delicious and there was so many! That is definitely the best part of staying here. Other than that the place was unremarkable.
