“You won't want to leave.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We had a great time and I have to say the staff were all exceptional - so friendly and helpful. I would name names but there's not a one who doesn't deserve mention. The condo was very convenient for our late-night arrival at Lihue airport. It was attractive, comfortable and well equipped; how often does a rental place even have a bread knife and a blender? There were a couple of maintenance problems that were fixed as soon as we mentioned them; when we had a problem with a DVD that we borrowed free from the front desk late on Saturday, they replaced the DVD player on Sunday morning. They need to know there's a problem before they can fix it, but the response is very swift
We were particularly impressed by the strong and free Wifi signal.
We like to walk, rather than drive, so one drawback is that it was hard to walk anywhere but to the beach and to a few places nearby. However the government is working on making the island more pedestrian friendly by putting in more walking paths. This hotel is in a good location for day trips to anywhere on Kauai. We'll stay there again. You can get one King bed or two smaller beds, but all units appear to be one-bedroom, which is another drawback for us (who have older children), tho not for everyone. No dishwasher.
We didn't swim much as we were there in December, a month of heavy seas. The hotel pools are not heated, so the water can be cold on those rare cool days. Note: there is a small farmers' market next door at Coconut Grove on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9 am-noon. We chose fresh local pineapple, passion fruit and a variety of different kinds of bananas at this market. Unfortunately this market was not on the helpful list of farmers' markets that the hotel gave us when we checked in. The staff gave us good information on places to go, things to do and how to tell if local fruit is at its peak. All in all, we lost our heart to Kauai and Plantation Hale (pronounced "Ha-le", it means "house".).

The price was right and it was perfect for me. The staff was nice. The room was huge. I thought it would be small but there was a bedroom with 2 beds, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a living room. It was awesome! You definitely get your money's worth. The beach across the street was nice too

We booked through Expedia and had no problems. Our suite J14 was comfortable and functional. The beach, shopping, dining etc. were close. It is in a good location to access all parts of the island. The only maintenance problem was handled promptly and with no fuss. The pools and hot tub were nice and close, as was the beach. Erin the concierge was wonderful and very helpful, as were the front desk staff. It was definitely worth getting the ocean view deluxe suite. We would definitely stay here again, and probably will.

Location of the former Best Western is excellant. We were next door to places to eat, shop, etc....
We walked to Kapaa on the street and also on the beach. Only a few miles to the trailhead to hike " Sleeping Giant Mountain ". Any issues we had were dealt within minutes. Our suite E15 was roomy, comfortable with an outdated kitchen and washroom. " Noe " on the front desk was first class. The gentleman that also served us did a fine job. We were there for a seniors slopitch tourney and spent two weeks at the Plantation Hale. Do rent a vehicle to get around to both ends of the Island and visit the Coffee Plantation on the west side and brouse in Koloa Old town and Hanapepe Old town. In Kapaa a gem is the small Verde Mexican Restaurant , with fantastic, huge burrito"s. And the staff are great and allow meal splitting. The hotel pool was very good. A barbecue on site was also available and our team did make use of. Mahalo.

The location is ideal for heading to the north side OR to the west side of Kauai. We did both. We had to do some cooking on our own do to food allergies, so this place was fantastic featuring a kitchen, dining table, and living room. The hot tub and pool were a minute away and the walk to the ocean takes about two minutes. We WILL go back again.

We booked our trip through Orbitz and visited May 2012. We were there for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed the location, pools, hot tubs, etc. It's a very quiet place with wonderful maid service and security. There are washers and dryers for each building and they were reasonable and worked well. As others have said, the grocery stores are nearby as well as other stores and restaurants. I loved the little doves that would come around and keep you company if you were sitting outside. The chickens are fantastic as well. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. In fact, we're talking about buying one of the condos. I'm finalizing plans right now to go back in next month, December. I can't wait!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our corner room in building F. We faced the pool and were steps from jumping right in!
