We were attracted by the lanai shared with the condo next door. The location was great, and it was clean. However the patio furniture literally fell apart on us. When we arrived there was a pile of rusty metal pieces underneath the furniture and we could not walk in bare feet. When we moved the furniture 3 pieces between 10... More

Aloha, On behalf of the Poipu Shores Resort, I'd like to apologize. As the general manager on-site, I wish I'd known about your chairs when we talked about the wine glasses, I'd have been happy to loan you some for the rest of your vacation. As 101B is a unit that I do not manage directly, I do not check... More

I have to say, we felt this was a bit of a splurge as we finished our stay in Hawaii, and we were not disappointed. We were in unit 303a which was well stocked and upgraded. The highlight, though, having left the hinterland of the Midwest in January, was the VIEW! We could have easily stayed on the lanai for... More

Aloha, I am so glad to hear that you had a great vacation with us! I agree the lanais are a fantastic place to watch the waves, sunsets and there is no better place to watch whales this time of year. All of our units are as close to the ocean as you can get. We'll look forward to your... More

The view from the condo was amazing. We saw whales from our lanai almost every day. The pool was great and we never had an issue with parking. The staff were friendly. The location of the condo was great for getting around to see many places. We arrived very late so it was nice to have some coffee and goodies... More

Aloha KauaiLover444, It's nice to hear that you enjoyed the views and our friendly staff but I'm sorry to hear that you found some aspects of your condo lacking. The owners of 201A chose a management company that is located off site, so that is not a unit I check before a guest's arrival. As the on-site manager and staff,... More

We stayed at Poipu Shores over Christmas & New Year's and paid dearly for the experience. Was it worth it...? Probably! The location is amazing and the views spectacular - we saw dolphins, whales and turtles from our lanai which was spectacular. The pool area was lovely and the location was very convenient to many things. I think there is... More

This is our second stay here and we love it! This time, we stayed in 202 B. The view is incredible with the ocean steps away. The waves crash right there! The condo is beautiful with both bedrooms facing the ocean. No staples in the kitchen, so expect an immediate grocery outing. The pool is right at the waters edge... More

Arriving in late afternoon we nearly melted until we got the fans going...but even then it was unbearable until the sun went down. But the deck and our room faced the waves crashing on the lava rocks below which was spectacular. (Not sure how the building was allowed.) And the swimming pool was roomy and good for laps. The cable... More

This was my second time staying here and it was perfect! A typical condo. 2 bed, 2 bath. But the location!!!! Right at the oceans edge. You can hear the surf pounding at the lava. It is loud, but we found we slept amazingly well with it. The pool along the ocean was ideal and we used that and the... More

Comfortable, family oriented accommodations. Located near public beach, shopping, and restaurants. Easy access to multiple Kauai activities and must see sights. A very busy location because of the many other hotel and condominiums..

rented this condo for my family vacation. The location and view is amazing. The 2 bedroom condo 103c is nicely decorated and large. The biggest negative was no AC. It was hot and muggy and it made sleeping very difficult.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay aside from the hot conditions. Like the rest of the nation we have been experiencing unusually hot conditions, some record setting. Normally our trade winds and the use of ceiling fans is enough to provide comfort but not n this case. I hope you will still decide to choose... More
