I stayed in Plantation Hale in November 2013 for 6 days with my husband and it was our first time there. Suites are very clean and nice to stay. Additionaly, there are pools and jaccuzi's that can be used till 10 pm (it's nice to enjoy the evening there). The only thing that was not working good enough is the oven - it takes a lot of time to bake/broil anything in it and there is no dish/tools if one would like to heat something. All other utensils were very good, e.g. stove/cooker worked properly.
The location: between Hanalei and Poipu - centralized but in November in Poipu there was more sun.
