We were here for the wedding of a friend and absolutely loved the location and setting. They made the wedding a special occasion for all involved and I can't fault them for any of that. However it was unbearably hot in most cottages and the bug screens were very badly fitted. In my opinion, spending a few bucks on decent... More

Ok, it really ticks me off for people to give WPC a bad review. If you write reviews on Tripadvisor then certainly you do your homework before you book a vacation, therefore you should know what to expect from WPC! And it ain't a 5 star resort, they are down the road with zero history or character! WPC are just... More

This place could be a very special destination...but it's not. I have visited the hotel two times now - each time met with an indifferent staff who seems like they'd rather not be there. I want to bring a group of 25 or so to Kauai for a retreat and was interested in this property, but the staff is clearly... More

Great, helpful and friendly staff! Remote cottages in a small town which offers very little in the way of restaurants or entertainment. The plantation is beautifully landscaped and is along a lovely black sand beach. Don't get excited-you can't swim there, but there is a pool. The exterior appears to be quite charming when you arrive, but that's where it... More

It depends on what you're looking for. As other reviewers have stated, this is a very different kind of property than the big resort hotels like the Sheraton or Marriott back in Poipu. WPC consists of a collection of wooden, frame construction, 1940s vintage cottages laid out a beautiful beachfront setting, just on the western edge of the village of... More

Quiet, calming, relaxed. Come to this side of the island for more sun and less traffic and little that is touristy and kitschy. If you are looking for the Hawaiian "night life" this is not the spot for you. However, if you are going to Hawaii to truly "get away from it all" then this fills the bill perfectly. Nearby... More

Stayed here with my parents and boyfriend one night. I am 4th generation Filipino-American whose family immigrated to Hawaii to work on pineapple plantations. My father said the way the cottage was refurbished was eerily close to the way he remembered the actual plantation homes of his grand-uncles and aunts. Unfortunately, we didn't get a room w/ A/C during a... More

We just returned this morning from a two night stay in cottage #75. The bedroom is showcased in one of the management photos. The cottage was very sweet and very clean. The historic feel of our cottage was fun but would not want to stay longer than two nights due to the lack of things to do in Wiamea. For... More

This is the place to stay when you want an authentic, relaxing, peace filled experience on Kauai. It is a very different type of resort than the Hyatt, Mariott, etc. It is amazingly quaint and charming. We had such a great family experience. I truly felt the heart of Kauai. We loved playing in the pool (perfect for my kids... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Private, individual plantation cottages set on a historic 27-acre coconut plantation in a beachside setting close to Kauai's famous Napali Coast and Waimea Canyon. Each self-contained cottage has been fully restored with modern appliances, full kitchens, and amenities. The simple, comfortable charm, genuine history and beautiful grounds allow guests to enjoy a unique experience unlike any other in the islands. Waimea Plantation Cottages offers beautiful settings for Wedding Celebrations, Anniversaries, Family Reunions, and Corporate Business meetings. Note: The restaurant will be closed temporarily as we remodel and transition the restaurant to a new restaurant operator and will re-open in mid-to-late fall of 2013. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience. During this transition, we suggest trying some of the other dining options in Waimea Town such as Wrangler's Steak House. But do come and try our new restaurant once it reopens! ... more   less
