This is the place to stay if you are looking for a Hawaiian experience. Our cottage was adorable. The bed was extremely small but we managed. The grounds are beautiful. The sunsets are spectacular. The town of Waimea is close by and has everything you need plus it's got a ton of charm. The cottages vary by size and location... More

This place will exceed your expectations, guaranteed. It is truly a plantation setting, reminiscent of all I imagined Hawaii was in the era of sugar beet plantations. The cottages decor seems period-authentic, but with modern comforts. The grounds are beautiful and meticulously kept. But for us, Aaron (the gentleman who worked the front desk) pushed the trip over the top!... More

I would highly recommend you request and confirm an updated cottage. The Director's Cottage was not a cheerful place - the kitchen cabinet smelled and the bottom cabinets were fifthly and all the windows were rotted out. The grounds are fabulous and the pool was excellent. It is too bad they have let some of the cottages deteriorate without updates.... More

While Hawaii is one of my favorite travel destinations, I took my first trip to Kauai in January. Dramatically different than the arid sprawl of the Big Island, Kauai is smaller and much more lush. I had wanted to check out Kauai to check off the four large islands of Hawaii and I am glad I did. I stayed at... More

That is the only appropriate beginning to a review so unbelievable, it sounds made up! The first thing you need to know, is that this "resort" (in the loosest sense of the word), is in Waimea, which is the rear-end (pun intentional) of Kauai, which is otherwise a gorgeous island. Waimea is entirely a locals town, not much going on... More

Stayed here for one night plus although we paid for two nights. We picked this place so we could hike the incredible Canyon. Unfortunately the cottage we were given # 74 had a most overpowering scent of mildew, compost ,urine and decay that the management had some how recognized as every window and screen door was open and the fans...

Waimea Plantation Cottages is exactly what it sounds like - a series of cottages, raised slightly above ground level, and each separated from the other by a generous amount of space. After signing in a a large wooden building, we drove slowly on a nice dirt road to find our cottage #47. In my mind, as we entered the cottage,... More

Our first time in Kauai and we loved the Plantation Cottages. We were there December 5 - 10, 2014, and off season. There were only a few guest. We enjoyed the quiet ( except for the roosters, with whom we made friends), the trees and plants in the compound, and the shore. Waimea is down home and very Hawaiian. We... More

Wow! What a disappointment... we ate at the hotel restaurant twice in 2012, and explored the grounds with enthusiasm, planning a return trip with our children. It was SO NICE> What we couldn't know was that the cottages are no where near as well kept as the main building- we could see though the floor to the ground in many... More
