We rented Unit 104 from owner based on web site description as being "Paradise" to celebrate our anniversary. Unit is nicely located but new furniture was most uncomfortable ever experienced. Kitchen was adequate but appliances (stove & dishwasher) old and paint peeling from drawer fronts is most unattractive. Free internet service worked well. Biggest plus for this unit was that... More

This is a spectacular resort. We stayed in an absolutely gorgeous oceanfront room with stunning views. The room was beautifullly decorated with tropical decor and surrounded with plumeria trees. The grounds are spacious and well laid out. A fine restaurant - Plantation Gardens restaurant is on site. The staff were universally very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The location of the...

Loved Kiahuna Plantation. Our condo had a wonderful view, but a little tired, and small for the price.

On beautiful beach in Poipu. Well maintained property. Mgtmt is very nice and helpful. You do not need air conditioning, plenty of breeze with fans. Buildings 8, 9,10 are across from the laundry and grounds maintenance sheds which are very noisy early in the morning. The pool across Poipu Road is very nice with hot spa and a full restaurant...

We stayed in a one room condo at Kiahuna Plantation. The location on Poipu beach was perfect. The condo was nicely updated and clean. The carpets did need a good shampooing in the high traffic areas. Otherwise, it was perfect for a family of four. We stayed in a garden view condo which was furthest from the beach, but the... More

We stayed two weeks in unit 412, a Castle unit rented through VRBO. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the property is beautiful and very well taken care of and staff are friendly and efficient. We watched the sunset at the beach every night and often there were whales competing for our attention - it was very special! Our unit was... More

Perfect location: on the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. Hard-working, friendly staff. Immaculate grounds. Rooms are somewhat dated, but comfortable and everything you need for a pleasant stay. Face it - when you're in Hawaii, you don't stay in your room! Fully furnished kitchen if needed. Very reasonably priced. Pros: Great area of the Island to stay...the south-facing... More

Mahalo for your review! We appreciate your staying with us. Yes, the pool is accross the road, but better there than in the middle of our fabulous great lawn! While farther away, the noise from the folks enjoying the pool does not affect our guests. At any rate, please feel free to contact me for any assistance you might need... More

We've gone to Kiahuna Plantation since the early 1980s. We love the Poipu location and the staff is really nice. I like how they are replanting one area of the grounds to feature orchids. Our unit, 339, was clean. That's due to the service staff. But the bathtub was chipped and painted over with that porcelain white paint. Kind of... More

This was our second trip to Poipu. I kept thinking that the Plantation would be too large of a resort for us but this trip we stayed there for 5 nights and it would be my first choice upon a return. Great beach, easy walk to other beaches, hotels, restaurants, their pool and the shopping center. The grounds are spectacular... More
