My wife and I stayed in the self contained 'Mango' unit in late April for five nights. Having previously cruised up from Sydney on the Radiance of the Seas we immediately flew out to Kauai, picked up a hire car and drove out to Poipu arriving at the resort around 2.30pm. The reception was closed by then but the management had left an envelope for us adjacent to the car park that contained the key to our unit plus a general information sheet that gave access without any real delay. The units like most building there are timber rather than masonry and while they show some signs of needing work they are nonetheless homely, clean and comfortable. We did however feel that the kitchen units and the television, which are basic and old, should have long been replaced with newer units. Furthermore the television programs, notwithstanding the multitude of channels available, provide little of interest. So much for cable. It is nonetheless a relaxing and quiet place to stay being quite close to the sea shore with Brennecke's Beach nearby providing a couple of nice safe areas for swimming, Turtles and fur seals can be regularly seen with the former swimming amongst the bathers and the latter asleep on the beach.There are many restaurants, cafes, food outlets there but a shortage of good coffee shops part from Starbucks at Poipu Shopping Centre a shot drive away. Take out ie pizza was noticeable by its absence apart from one we found in Old Koloa Town which we dined ut twice.The management are very friendly and helpful and will readily book tours for you from the office. It was surprising and charmng to receive a thank you card from them signed by four of their staff shortly after we arrived home. A nice touch and sure to earn a revisit or at the very least a recommendation as this is.
