We are again having the perfect vacation at Castle Kiahuna Plantation. The swimming pool and workout area are now done and are great. There are scheduled classes in yoga, adult and children's fitness and ballet. The newly renovated tennis courts are beautiful. The staff are the best! Today the person at the beach activities desk was offering chunks of fresh... More

We so enjoyed our stay on Kauai. The landscape of Castle Kiahuna was beautiful. We had condo #16 in building #4. We literally walked out our patio doors to the beach. I had read previous reviews of the condos being outdated. This one was not. The unit was well maintained with granite in both the kitchen and bathroom. What a... More

Do not get a garden view or garden view deluxe unit. These units are close to the road & very noisy. Units are also dated. Beach access is probably the best feature but the pool is not on the grounds itself & is very busy with non resort members of the beach club. Very disappointed in the total stay

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon (2013). It was arranged via a travel agent through Pleasant Hawaiian so it was forward and simple. Upon arrival and check in, we were greeted at the office by a friendly woman and she was clear and helpful in explaining everything. Nothing hidden, no surprises. The grounds were well manicured and... More

We are repeat visitors to Kiahuna Plantation, and I've never found a better place for us to stay in the Poipu area. We LOVE just taking a stroll thru the gardens to the beach. Sun, swim, snorkel without needing to drive! ( Stop at Snorkel Bob's for gear. You'll pass it as you drive in.) The beach here is sandy,... More

We'd recommend Kiahuna as the go to property in Poipu to anyone. We lucked out getting unit 107 - the room is updated in every imaginable way and far exceeds other such rooms in the complex in terms of creature comforts and updating, many other rooms are dated and in need of upgrades - not unit 107. The weather was... More

Unit 6 sits right on the beach and the vistas are wonderful...sounds of the surf and sunsets. However...and this is a big however...the unit is in need of immediate... More

Kauai is our favorite island and after visiting the other Hawaiian islands on previous trips, we decided to spend all our time in Kauai on this trip. We also consider Poipu the best location, with the most sun and easy access to restaurants and shopping. Since we much enjoyed the Kiahuna Plantation condo we stayed in last year, we were... More

We had a great time here in March 2014! Our 2 older teens came with us and we had so much to do, we need to go back! We loved the roosters crowing, after we got used to them, every morning. The birds & the geckos visiting us on the lanai every morning. The budgie parakeets flying wild in the... More

We enjoyed our two weeks stay over Christmas/New years Eve very much so. The condos are spacey, and equipped with all you need for your comfort. We had a corner condo on ground level in a two story building with a glimpse of sight to the ocean. I was reading the complaints about noise and such - it is true,... More
