“Beautiful condo but with noises (road)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

Stayed here for 5 days in September 2010. Upper unit of one of the condos (3 bdrm) facing Ka haku road (balcony views include golf course...and your neighbours).

Unit itself was beautifully decorated, brand new appliances and all, garage well stocked with beach chairs etc. However road noises (traffic) can be terrible, starting from 6am well into the night, there will be a car passing through every 30seconds-minute since this road leads to the St. Regis, particularly noisy around sunset time.

Also the golf course maintenance people were mowing the lawn, cutting down trees when we were there so no chance of lazy sleeping in the morning....we bought earplugs at the supermarket.

But as I mentioned the condo itself (and the common areas like the pool etc) was beautiful, very clean, bathroom was especially large with huge tub, great shower pressure, kitchen fully stocked with all pans and pots needed for cooking (which we did everyday) and the price was good, we got a deal for $150 a night, much cheaper than other areas (probably because of location, no ocean views just golf course). Would we return? Yes but probably to the units that don't face the main road.

A short drive from the Princeville Foodland supermarket, 10 minutes to Hanalei town and beach, 30-40 minutes to Haena beach. Other direction, 40 minutes or more to Kapaa town.

We love this place! We took our second trip here in May 2011. No complaints! I hope I get to go back in a few years. We will definitely stay here again! Kauai is our most favorite Hawaiian island.

We loved our stay at the Plantation at Princeville. The units are set up to maximize privacy and are aesthetically appealing. It is quiet and relaxing as well. Aloha Condos arrangement process was seamless.

Thank you to Kristen and her team, we had a great stay and everything was exactly as it appears in photos. The surroundings are perfect and if you're up for some nice walks, there are beautiful beaches to be found in Princeville, be sure not to miss Queen's Bath. We would definitely come again!!

This resort is relatively new and well designed. The condos are fairly private in how they are laid out including reasonable sound-proofing between the upstairs and downstairs units. The gardens are beautifully maintained. I have already recommended this resort to friends in San Francisco.

It was easy to find and get to from the airport. the directions were exact. Those in our party enjoye3d the walking paths and the St. Regis. Ten of those attending the wedding stayed at some facility within the Plantation at Princeville.

I spent a week in unit 211 at the Plantation in Princeville. The place exceeded my expectations. Very comfortable space with great beds and furnishings, huge master bath, plenty of space. This was a great condo for our needs ... we had two small children and being on the 1st floor with easy access to the lawn was great. We thought we would use the pool often, but the beaches were so beautiful we didn't even touch the pool --- although it was very nice to look at. The one thing to consider is that you don't have an ocean view here. I checked out the Cliffs and Sealodge and indeed if you can get a unit with a view, those views are breathtaking. For the money however, you can't get the high quality offered at unit 211 in Plantation. It's a tradeoff - view vs. quality of the space. The owners were a pleasure to work with. I think this unit is one of the nicer situated in the complex as it looks out on the inner gardens and pool.
