Location; great center of the east side of the island made it easy to go north or south.
There is traffic and you need to plan for it to be very slow going for 20 minutes when heading south. Across from the resort there is Safeway, Longs, Starbucks, Subway, ABC store & McDonald's all an easy walk to.
beach; not swimmer friendly. you need to drive south to the park just past the river and on left.
pool; not heated well= leaving most to go into the two hot tubs. one is adult only, the other is full of kids. I had been at the Hilton in Poipu and their pools were much warmer!!!
resort; actually three properties in one; some owner occupied, some vacation rentals, and I don't recall the other. What this means is the front desk often can't help you and you are referred to another phone number to get info or help with repairs needed.
Unit D405; view of Safeway and mountains (called a garden view). Several issues reported the 2nd of 9 days there and only one ever got repairs. The living room TV remote did not work nor did the pole living room lamp. the living room sofa hide a bed is not fit to be slept on by any adult. Even one bathroom had a light bulb out! These things should have been checked before it was ever rented!! Would not recommend this unit or Remax/Kauai who managed it.
kitchen:" equipped well enough including salt, pepper and cooking oil.
noise: this unit had nose going on, unsure if it was from the water system or what but if it wasn't the Air conditioner there were always sounds.
parking; plenty of it
Staff/concierge; very helpful
Kapaa area in general; no night life, limited cultural activities taking place. If you stay in Princeville or Poipu area there is much more going on and more things to do which is why there are so many condos & golf courses at both of those locations. note that the weather in Poipu is much warmer than the other places I have named.
Snorkeling; is best at the top or bottom of the island, time of year also plays a factor in how safe the north is for this.
Weather; February= mostly mid 70's, water temperature was OK (about like the pool at this resort). Some rain shows came and went most days.
Drinks: they make Rum on this island and Longboard beer. If you have time go to one of the rum tasting events. If you want to buy the local Rum go to Costco for the best price.
Costco; best price on mangos, pineapples, food, liquors, vegetables, gas, etc. In Lihue.
