I stayed at this condo in late Feb early March with my wife and 3 adult children. The 2 bedroom condo was exactly what we expected after plenty of prior research. The kitchen is equiped with everything you need . The beds were comfortable and had enough blankets and pillows. The 2 bathrooms were clean and the shower had lots... More

These condos are very poorly maintained and run down on the outside. The maintenance staff was always sitting in their golf carts. I only saw someone caring for the lawn once while I was there. The outside needs painting and the condos need new windows. The old jalousie windows are very energy inefficient and do not keep out noise. I... More

We reserved this condo thru an RCI exchange and the professional photos and descriptions looked like a very nice resort facility. However, upon arrival, we sadly discovered that this is not the case. If you want to stay in a something resembling a resort during your visit to beautiful Kauai, do NOT stay here. If you want to stay in... More

We booked through RCI and were in Building D which is near a very busy road. However, we used the main bedroom and could not hear the road noise at night. Buildings further up the hill from the road would be quieter. The unit itself was clean and spacious, with comfortable beds and quality appliances throughout. However, we have marked... More

Centrally located on the island, perfect for exploring all the 'must see's'.The pool area is nothing special but right across the street, a short 2 minute walk, is the beach , along... More

Also know that there are... More

We stayed for 5 nights and ended up coming back for a sixth since we liked it so much (and it was raining on the north shore). Banyan Harbor is in an amazing location - a two minute walk to Kalapaki beach (Nawiliwili Harbor). The beach ended up being one of our favorites - perfect waves for kids to boogie... More

We have been to Kauai over 20 times and have stayed many places on the island. We visited Kauai 3 times last year. This was our first visit to Banyan Harbor. We liked it and would stay there again. We do not care to stay at a higher priced fancier property because we don't hang out at the pool and... More
