We stayed in a lovely condo in Building 39 across the street from the shopping mall/restaurants. If I were to rate the condo itself it was a 4 (lacks cooler, and kitchen/cooking essentials) but the location was extremely noisy (road noise until 11pm and music from the restaurant until at least 10). AVOID buildings that are next to the road!... More

We loved our stay at Kaihuna Plantation! Our 1 bdr unit was on the 2nd level with an ocean view just beyond a beautiful grass yard. We had a big lanai to sit out on and drink our morning coffee, daily visits by beautiful red headed cardinals, and a very peaceful environment. We comfortably walked as far as the Hyatt... More

We absolutely loved this place! We booked an ocean front room and loved it! The beach was not very big, however it never felt crowded. The property was absolutely beautiful. The location is great, you can walk to some great restaurants and shops. We never had any problems getting towels, beach chairs, or beach equipment. Our room actually had a... More

Great little place - the condo has everything you need. It isnt cheap but apparently nothing in Hawaii is. The beach attached to the property is wonderful and the grounds are landscaped beautifully. The downside is that the pool is across the road, but it is a full Athletic club with a really great gym and amenities, so its not... More

Our unit was just fine. Well equipped, clean, in good shape. The wifi worked well. The grounds are lovely, with grand lawns and huge trees spreading over everything. Loved the way the louvers open up the place to the island breeze. The beach in front of the property is pretty good, and it's nice to have beach chairs available for... More

For the first three days we stayed in Bldg 2 Unit 5 and for the last ten days we stays in Bldg 2 Unit 6 (right upstairs from 5). Keep in mind that each unit is owned separately and Castle just puts people in them. (Like a management company). Bldg 2 Unit 5 Excellent Beach Front condo that is truly... More

Mahalo for your detailed post. We know #5 is awesome, and they (the owners) work hard at keeping it up. We are currently working with the owners of #6 to address their appliances and several other items, so hopefully that will happen soon. It does have a great location and view! We hope that you come back again very soon.... More

Easy to find and book. Rooms in the one bedroom class, are large and clean. We were in room 128, which is close to the main street, but enough space so that you don't hear it. Using the room key, takes practice as they forgot to tell you. Use it like a credit card, insert and remove quickly. It is... More

Mahalo! We appreciate your patronage, and hope to see you back soon. Should you wish something a little less pricey, I would humbly suggest that you plan your travel period for April or May, and March is very busy and prices are high. Roy Thompson General Manager More

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

I am VERY pleased that you mentioned the swimming pool. The complex is now known as the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, and the improvements that they have made are great for our resort. Dining, a bar with flat screen TV's, workout rooms, classes, etc. Many view the location across the road as an issue, but we are such a large... 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

I apologize that our Garden View category did not meet your expectations. Did you consider checking our website for the location of the category that you booked? Or read this forum for information? Should you visit us again, may I suggest you consider our Garden Paradise category? It is centrally located, away from the road, but they don't have the... More
