We had paid for a condo with the royal garden view and not to be on the main highway. They absolutely refused to honor that. Our unit had several issues with the toilet including a major leak. It was very difficult. To get service. The cabinetry and furniture were very much in need of replacement. One of the sockets in... More

This review was for Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation, but was posted under Castle Resorts and Hotels. I will object to TA and ask it to me removed, or moved, but in the meantime, folks should know that this review does not reflect that great service and quality that Castle Resorts supplies.

Kiahuna offered us everything we needed. Stayed there for nine days for a family wedding next door at the Sheraton. Ocean view unit next door to the Sheraton. The Sheraton has strict noise policies for functions. All patio doors close at ten and music and bar shut down at midnight. The ocean side luau is done before nine, only two... More

I liked the plantation style décor and was a decent size room for our group. The grounds are nicely maintained and our room was a short walk to the beach. The staff was very friendly and helped us to enjoy our stay. There is a very nice pool to use, but it wasn't easy for some in our group to... More

Such a wonderful resort..only issue is the pool. They need one on site. But for us the Is property suits us just fine. So relaxing... The staff is very friendly and helpful. The shopping center within walking distance is so handy. The beach is beautiful. Please note there are no elevators. We had a great vacation and we will be... More

The good: Nice room, large, king bed, beautiful garden view, not just a "garden view" but a real, walk-able garden with interesting plants. Plantation style decor, freshly painted. Typical amenities. The bad: Not a decent single night's sleep due to loud parties every night. Much of the noise comes from the nearby Sheraton (I feel so bad for the people... More

We were staying at Kiahunna Plantation with a group of friends. Three couples staying in three different units. Two couples had second floor units but we had a first floor unit. Be careful when you book as these units have no A/C. Don't be fooled by the term Hawaiian A/C. It means winds and ceiling fans. We were uncomfortable and... More

We apologize that you did not enjoy your recent stay. It is true and well publicized that we do not feature air conditioning. Most folks find the temperature comfortable, but obviously it is not suited for everyone. And yes, our pool facility is not right on property, however, the recent improvements we have seen in transforming it into the Poipu... More

We were initially concnerned that this large property would feel urban or congested. The reality was entirely different. The lodging units are scattered across beautifully landscaped grounds with lots of open space. Each multi-unit building is designed for privacy with lots of elbow room and a lovely lanai. Though we were back from the beach, our third floor setting gave... More

Beautiful grounds. Condo was well-kept and quiet; felt very private. Several dining options close by, some within walking distance. Loved getting chairs and sitting on the expansive lawn overlooking the ocean. Water was rough during our stay. Walking distance to Poipu Beach. Would definitely stay here again.

We liked this place. Beach in our back yard. BUT a couple of things: A hedge blocked access, so we had to walk around about 500 feet to actually get to the beach. People kept walking in front of our place, searching for beach access, even though signs clearly said "No Beach Access" - so we are sitting on our... More

Thank you very much for your recent stay. Kiahuna features the only true beach front condos on Kauai. As to the foot traffic, yes, we are aware of this issue, and are trying to figure out what type of signage to use in order to discourage folks from walking along that area of the lawn.

My wife booked a one week stay here for the second week of our honeymoon. I felt mislead. The pictures depicted a much nicer, cleaner and updated condos than what we stayed in.
