My wife and I just came back to Oahu from a wonderful mini-vacation in Kauai. The Poipu Plantation Bed & Breakfast Inn was GREAT!
We found the hotel itself, our room, the staff, the location all exceptional. Javed went out of his way to make us (and all the other guests) feel welcome and at home. I had spent some time talking with him setting up our reservations, and when I walked into the office he greeted me by name before I could say a thing. The staff are very attentive to guests needs. They are knowledgeable and informative about local events, culture, sights, travel times and "MUST SEE" if you're on Kauai. You feel as it you're talking to a long time friend who just happens to live someplace different that you.
Our room had a king bed that was comfortable, and a small lanai that overlooks the front lawn, and beautiful sunset views. We were up early, and enjoyed our morning coffee and newspaper on the lanai, just like we do at home. Breakfast was excellent, with fresh brewed Kauai grown coffee, and great camaraderie. Our fellow guests included two couples from different parts of Italy, and a couple of scuba divers from Florida. Breakfast lasted much longer than it took to eat it. "Where did you go yesterday/" .. "How was that"... "What are you doing today?" flowed around. Javed and the rest of the staff added to the conversation, and the feeling of "what a great place ... What nice interesting people"
This is not a ***** posh hotel with all new (and impersonal) everything. It is a lot like home, if you live in Hawaii, with Peggy Hopper prints, Hawaiian quilts, take your shoes off in the house. The bathroom was ... well a bathroom ... serviceable, perhaps a little dated, but "just like home" nothing special We couldn't have been more pleased with this place!
We will highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Garden Island -Kauai.
