We stayed at the Plantation Hale in mid-April and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff were welcoming and helpful, the suite we stayed in was newly refurbished and quite nice. As I understand it, these are condos that the owners rent to travelers when not occupied, and they are equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Our suite looked out toward the ocean, which was a short walk away, perhaps 200 yards. There was free Wi-Fi, BlueRay players and flat screen TV's in the living room and bedroom. Shopping and restaurants were close by as well. We would stay again.
Now the downside: the pools (3) were very close to the busy highway, making a relaxing afternoon in the sun difficult due to noise and exhaust. While getting to the beach was easy, there were no chairs/loungers available to borrow on the property (you can rent them from various locations in Kapaa). There was a lot of road construction while we were there, snarling traffic and making travel less than pleasant.
All in all, we had a great time, and would recommend this resort/hotel with the following caveats: Make sure you secure a "scenic view" and ask for a recently redecorated unit. Rent beach chairs at the beginning of your stay to make your beach time more enjoyable.
