My husband and I went to the Marriott in Poipu in February and we had a great time. This property is very well maintained and beautiful. We were fortunate to get a 2 bdr / 2 ba villa at this property compliments of my parents timeshare. Upon entering the property, we were immediately greeted by the staff and they were very helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived (we were early), so they took my number and promptly called me when it was.
The room was very peaceful and had a full kitchen with amenities. It had storage containers, salt / pepper, etc, which was nice and helpful for our stay. The master room had a large tub in the bathroom and a separate shower. The 2nd room featured a shower, and the full-sized washer / dryer.
The pool on the property is a bit small and in order to stay in the sun, we needed to use the lawn chairs settled on the grass. It overlooked the beach though, so no complaints there.
The beach on the property is partially private and partially public. It is all well maintained by security, so I never was worried about leaving my things at my chair while I went to the restroom or to get something to eat.
The marketplace does have some essentials you'll need, but you're probably better off going to the Big Save or the Living Foods Market and Cafe (a real gem, by the way) in the new shopping center in Poipu.
The hotel doesn't have much in terms of dining aside from the beach bar, but there's some great restaurants nearby that are fantastic.
Overall, would definitely come back. We loved the home feel of this property compared to the other Marriott in Lihue. It was a wonderful time, great for families!
One side note, I did get a massage in their beach cabanas. It was just okay, I'd save the $$ and go to Anara Spa at the Hyatt.
