“Great location, and decent price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Location of the former Best Western is excellant. We were next door to places to eat, shop, etc....
We walked to Kapaa on the street and also on the beach. Only a few miles to the trailhead to hike " Sleeping Giant Mountain ". Any issues we had were dealt within minutes. Our suite E15 was roomy, comfortable with an outdated kitchen and washroom. " Noe " on the front desk was first class. The gentleman that also served us did a fine job. We were there for a seniors slopitch tourney and spent two weeks at the Plantation Hale. Do rent a vehicle to get around to both ends of the Island and visit the Coffee Plantation on the west side and brouse in Koloa Old town and Hanapepe Old town. In Kapaa a gem is the small Verde Mexican Restaurant , with fantastic, huge burrito"s. And the staff are great and allow meal splitting. The hotel pool was very good. A barbecue on site was also available and our team did make use of. Mahalo.

Aloha Kanucklehead. Thank you for the nice comments, and for acknowledging Noe. I think we have a friendly team here always willing to go the extra mile. It sounds as if you had a great time exploring our beautiful island. I will check the kitchen in E-15, we are renovating and re-placing kitchen items as needed. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I want to wish you and your family a very Happy and Safe Holiday Season. Mahalo for your business.

The location is ideal for heading to the north side OR to the west side of Kauai. We did both. We had to do some cooking on our own do to food allergies, so this place was fantastic featuring a kitchen, dining table, and living room. The hot tub and pool were a minute away and the walk to the ocean takes about two minutes. We WILL go back again.

We booked our trip through Orbitz and visited May 2012. We were there for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed the location, pools, hot tubs, etc. It's a very quiet place with wonderful maid service and security. There are washers and dryers for each building and they were reasonable and worked well. As others have said, the grocery stores are nearby as well as other stores and restaurants. I loved the little doves that would come around and keep you company if you were sitting outside. The chickens are fantastic as well. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. In fact, we're talking about buying one of the condos. I'm finalizing plans right now to go back in next month, December. I can't wait!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our corner room in building F. We faced the pool and were steps from jumping right in!

Loved our stay at Plantation Hale. The resort is located midpoint between north and southshore, so we could decide on a whim what we wanted to do each day. There are two major grocery stores 5 mins away, as well as restaurants. He wanted a condo that allowed us some independence and didn't feel like a resort. I still wanted some resort features such as a pool, maid service, amenities. Plantation Hale was perfect. It was quiet during our stay, and the one night we visited the hot tub, we had it all to ourselves.
My next stay in Kauai, I will definitely come back to Plantation Hale.

We had a wonderful stay at Plantation Hale. We could see the sunrise from our balcony, tho we did make it down to the beach one morning, an easy walk. The best ice cream on the island, just across the street at Coconut Marketplace! Since we wanted to see the whole island, the central location was ideal for us. The concierge, Erin, was wonderful at making suggestions, & booking things for us. Everyone was helpful & friendly. We will definitely be back when we return to the island!

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms on the ocean side have a beautiful view

The room was large and comfortable. The kitchen had a full size refrigerator. Cann't think of anything that was bad. Pool access was easy, restaurants close enough to walk to. Market had enough to cure a shopper. Farmers market was fun.
We were there when Kauai had their county fair. Love a fair. Overall stay was long enough and way to much fun. Had to go home to rest.
