“Can't Miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This property is wonderful. Lush gardens, ponds and swimming areas are the center of attraction. Rooms are large and many can sleep 8 with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, kitchen and patios. Units can purchased as well as rented for great holiday/vacation.

Room Tip: 1/2 the rooms have the garden view and this area opens onto the hotel's private beach area. Can...

Consierges Kanamie and Alton made our stay perfect. Highly recommend contacting them and plan great excursions such as Captain Andy, Jack H's doorless helicopter, kayaking up the river and waterfall above the airport and great restaurants: across the street is a good Hawaian restaurant (K......) table 8 and 9 are the only ones! Snorkeling is great - we had friends in Princeville and the difference in climate (beginning April) is amazing - Sun in Poipu and rain up north. Do book excursions before arrival - they sell out. Enjoy!

Room Tip: we like peace and quiet - not overlooking the many pools with active students - so I believe we were...

I booked this property for the location on Poipu. It is a beautiful older property that is in very good condition. There really are not many Ocean View Rooms. The view from most of the rooms face the pool and garden area which is lovely. There are rooms on the property which only face the parking lot. Our room listed as an ocean view really did not. You could see a little of the ocean from our bedroom but we still enjoyed sitting on the porch with the lovely view of the grounds. The pools are beautiful and you can sit in beach chairs on the grass which overlooks the ocean.
They seem to stick to the check in time of 4pm with not much leeway for early arrival. They also did not want to allow any later check out even though my husband has a Marriott distinction which allows for a late checkout. One of the front desk help Ahi jumped in from another associate and helped us out. The others at the desk were less than personable.
It is a small quiet facility that is great for a quiet vacation. There are a number of good restaurants in the area as well as adequate grills to do your own cooking. They are well used and in great shape.

We had a great stay for our family of 5. We were in Hale 5, so, we had to walk a little to get to the pools and the beach. We had a garden view, which was nice.

Our kids loved the activities, that the WBC provides. The beach was great, and, we saw monk seals, and, sea turtles during our stay.

Room Tip: The only rooms, I wouldn't want would the Mountain views in Hale 4, which face the back parking...

Family of four, with mom, dad, and two small kids. We had a two bedroom suite in Hale 5.

The suite was very large, clean, and beautiful. Spacious, fully appointed kitchen, with dw, stove, fridge, oven, micro, etc. large dining table for 6 adults. Two huge bedroom mini-suites, each with its own bathroom, sofa, and tv. Large central living room as well. Very quiet, super comfy bedding. Hale 5 has a very limited ocean view, but this was expected. We placed our priority on comfort, rather than views from the room. If you want to see the ocean, walk to the beach on property.

We only stayed two nights, before camping in Kokee. I wish we had booked an entire week! Staff were friendly, checking was a breeze. 10am checkout is a little earlier than we would have liked, however.

Room Tip: Get a large suite.

Stayed here for five nights in early April. Pools were not crowded and you are steps from a beautiful beach. Very quiet on the beautiful island of Kauai. The fitness center was very well equipped and never crowded. The only downside for our first floor room was we found some small insects in the kitchen cabinets. The staff sent a service to spray while we were out and that lessened the issue but we still found some stragglers.

This is a beatutiful property in a great part of Kauai. If you want a great snorkle experience within steps from your room - this is it! The pools are warm and there is no shortage of towels or lounge chairs (except on holiday weeks). The rooms have great furnishings and ammenities. These are the things that put a continuous smile on your face!

The downside is that the customer service is cold - as they really do not want to provide extra service to their 'guests'. This is Vacation Club property so I suppose they think they can get away with bare minimum service, but to those paying full price it is irritating! Check in could not be accomidated earlier than 3:59PM as the room was not ready until then (although they couldn't be disturbed to actually check). The alarm clock was replaed with a high pitched BEEP-BEEP from the staff carts backing up at 6:15AM or the endless SWISHING as they scrubbed the walkway at 6:30. Could they not start until 8AM?? I suppose that would inconvience them.... There is also the Robocall the afternoon before checkout of the impending 10AM deadline, and a knock on your door at 9:15AM just to check if you have left.
