This was my third stay at Poipu Shores, and this was the best unit yet. We stayed in this tastefully furnished 2br/2ba condo in mid June 2011. The upgraded kitchen and full washer/dryer were bonuses, but nothing compares to the view location of this unit. It's on the end, 3rd floor, double wide balcony. The crashing surf and sea turtles were only the beginning - we also were treated to leaping dolphins, outrigger paddlers, and a beach view all the way to Spouting Horn!
Calling Poipu Shores a "resort" is a stretch. Yes, they have towel service, a pool and a minimal communal BBQ area, but a resort it's not. If what you want is convenient meals, poolside bars, preplanned activities for the kids, and water aerobics, then this is not for you. If you want the freedom to prepare your own meals or go out, the privacy to enjoy your morning coffee or sunset wine & cheese from your balcony without the constant crush of other travelers, then Poipu Shores fills the bill perfectly. Our stay was relaxing and recharging -- exactly what a vacation should be!
Easy walk to Brenneke Beach, Poipu Beach or Shipwreck Beach. Easy walk to several restaurants, none of which serve breakfast -- that's either a longer walk to one of the big hotels, or a short drive to Poipu Shopping Center. Parking can be challenging for those with mobility issues.
