“Bring your own toilet paper”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Booked a one bedroom condo through Interval as an exchange from another vacation club. The place is old, the floor was filthy (couldn't walk on it without shoes), moldy coffee grounds in coffee maker, dirt under wall bed. Every time we asked for something, they wanted to know our room number and then said we were not entitled to it: extra roll of toilet paper or box of kleenex, laundry detergent, mid-week housekeeping, etc. We ran completely out of toilet paper and even offered to pay for one but they said we could not. It seems some rooms have privileges and others don't. Felt like 2nd class citizens and the management did not try to make us feel welcome at all. We were not informed in advance that essentials would not be provided. There was construction going on in the driveway area. On the up-side, the view from the deck was nice and it was close to the ocean. TV & DVD player worked and it was close to grocery stores, shops & restaurants. No fitness room

Bought my Worldmark membership over a year ago and so far this is my favorite resort. I also visited Kihei in Maui last fall which was really nice and closer to nicer beaches, but much busier. Kauai is much more relaxed and peaceful. The resort itself offers 1 and 2 bedroom units with washer and dryer in the 2 bedrooms. All 2 bedrooms are on the 3rd floor and the building has no elevators. The 2nd bedroom is an additional flight of stairs to a loft with its own bath. The staff is very nice and resort grounds are kept up very well. The beach at the resort is not swimmable, but there are swimmable beaches not far and the pool is pretty much on the beach anyways. I visited this resort twice in 2012 and intend to return again this year. If youn don't require stairs then I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: All top floors are 2 bedroom so no noise from above.

We stayed at this property through our time share. Some feedback:

Positive:
1. Great view from our third floor room overlooking the ocean.
2. Centrally located.
3. Easy access to some good restaurants.
4. Has all the required amenities.
5. Nice pool and hottub.

Could be improved:
1. Second bedroom is half open. No privacy.
2. Second bedroom is very noisy due to the ocean. Hard to close the windows.
3. No elevator. Carrying luggage up and down was a PAIN!
4. Gave us two beach towels for a room of five people. When we asked for towels, they said that we have to return the two we have to get two other ones.
5. Flooring bothered me.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are noisy, but have the best view.

This place is above average for many reasons and deserves more than a 3 for view of ocean and large sliding balcony doors, pleasant large yard facing the ocean, 2 flat screen new TV's, decent pool and hot tub, staff friendliness, cleanliness and proximity to many things including grocery stores, restaurants, shops etc.
It is below average for its layout. The suite could not accommodate 2 couples well. The bedroom is at the back by the parking lot and outer walkway goes right by it. The windows are high and you would never know you were in Hawaii...maybe some little town in mid America where you need a quick stop to sleep. We pulled down the Murphy bed in our living room since we are only 2 of us staying here and we had a great sleep listening to the ocean and watching the sunrise in the morning.
It does need to be updated and refurbished ..bathroom fixtures worked but are old and the shower is just weird. Outside lawn furniture definitely needs to be replaced.
All in all we are not disappointed because we have the ocean everyday and every night the way we have structured our sleeping!

Room Tip: The second floor units seem to be the best. The two bedroom upper floor aren't really that and h...

I was looking for a fairly inexpensive place to rent out while on our honeymoon in hawaii. This place was perfect. Good location, view of the ocean, clean cabin, great pool and hot tub. Not super luxurious, but perfect for what we were looking for. It's in Kapaa, so there is good access to both the north and south of the island.

Staff were great. Place was clean but small units that are not well laid out. You can tell it needs some TLC overall. Kitchen was way to small for our family of 4 and not laid out well. The kids enjoyed the pool, and we liked the hot tub. Location is excellent as far as stores and being in Kappa. Location stinks if you want beach action out your door. Basically all the furniture needs to be improved on the comfort scale. It was quiet and the ocean views were nice.

Room Tip: Stay upstairs if you don't mind hauling your luggage up. We had a unit closer to the water and d...

The place is very outdated & rundown! The decor is ugly and uncomfortable. We got a 2 bedroom & it's only on the 3rd floor with no elevator & the main bedroom is a loft with a half wall so no privacy. There is no air conditioning and is very stuffy even with the lanai door open. We have a couple of people who are disabled and there is no accessibility.I wouldn't want to stay here again!
