“Beautiful Poipu Beach in Kauai”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Had a fantastic time at The Point at Poipu. Found a great deal on Living Social and stayed 6 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. There is no beach at The Point but just a short walk you can enjoy the beach next door at the Grand Hyatt or the opposite direction about 1/2 mile to Poipu State Beach. There were Sea Turtles both at the resort and at the Poipu State Beach Park. The resort was very nice, full kitchens and having 2 bedrooms made it great for 2 couples. I enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning we were there. I would highly recommend staying here.

Having a full kitchen in each unit, there is no restaurant except for pool side. This is exactly what we wanted as it get very expense to eat out for every meal. Make sure to try the restaurants next door at the Grand Hyatt.

Our one week stay at The Point was very relaxing. We traveled with another couple and the second bedroom was acceptable for them. Accommodations were very comfortable. We had 3rd level room with a ocean front view - 9-302. With windows open we could hear the waves crashing on the beach - just what we requested. The staff was very friendly always saying Aloha.
My only complaint would be the exterior of the buildings need cleanup and a fresh coat of paint. The tile flooring in the walkways need a good scrubbing. This is reason for very good rating and not excellent.
The Point is in process of construction and you want to request a room away from the construction, however they are respectful of not starting too early and working too late. It did really bother us even when we were sitting by the pool which was closer to the construction.

Room Tip: Request Ocean front, not just ocean view.

What a beautiful place. The condo was large and had everything we needed. It was a joy to walk the grounds. There is access to the shore but no swimming, it's all lava rocks, but that is ok the pool was very nice. We would go to the shore at sunset and watch the spectacular show as the waves crash like a freight train on the rocks.

Room Tip: Building 1 Room 204. Over looks the ponds and waterfalls. Also you can see the ocean from this room...

We were pleasantly surprised by how large our condo was and how it was decorated. The resort employees were all courteous and very nice. The grounds are well taken care of and clean. The pool has the illusion of being a lagoon...a great place to lounge by or swim in. A perfect place for families or couples.
Our room was directly located next to building 6 they are redoing. Even though they worked on it from approximately 9-5, it was not loud inside of our condo. If you are considering taking a trip in the next few months request a different condo than building 7, if construction bothers you at all.
Overall...we had a fantastic trip and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the parking lot unless you don't mind walking quite a distance. We were...

Friends had the unit for a week and we stayed there our first night before changing resorts the next day. The location is beautiful and the resort is kept spotless and is totally updated. We loved the grounds with koi ponds and waterfalls, the pool had a sand beach, very cool, and a tiki bar. It was a short path walk to the ocean and sea turtles could be seen playing in the surf. We even saw whales spouting offshore. The unit was a two bedroom and very nice, the guest room had two twins but it was easy to slide them together. Large walk in closet and black out curtains and two full baths. There were fans and central air and the appliances were all newer. It is a quite resort which we really appreciated and the staff we did meet were all friendly. Would definitely go back for a longer stay.

The Point at Poipu was perfect for our vacation with our friends. It was a two bedroom suite with a kitchen. The views from the check in center were fantastic. We were tucked away in a corner with views of the garden and a cart path. We still enjoyed it thoroughly. In fact our linai kept us fully protected from the winds and with A little walk and we were soaking in the views. The pool was the perfect temp and they have a good size spa. We took the liberty of walking next door to the Grand Hyatt several days and even had lunch there on Mother's Day. We walked the grounds several times because you just can't get enough of the beauty there. We had signed up to listen to a timeshare presentation just to get a great deal on a plane ride, but the times they had available didn't fit with our schedule so we cancelled. We were not pressured at all to do the time share presentation. Would do it again here. Very nice and relaxing. They even have a workout center "Aloha Center" where they have various activities for all ages.

Very nice, well maintained, but too big for me. We prefer a less intimidating environemnt for our annual Hawaii trip.We usaully go for 10-14 days, so like to be in a more low key environment. Although we paid for an ocean view, our ocean view was only over an embankment, and only for a far away open ocean. Perhaps something other than the ground floor would have provided a better view, but ground floor access was desirable. That said, a short walk took you to the magnificent shoreline, where there were excellent walking paths. The staff was quite accomodating and pleasant.

Room Tip: If you truly want an ocean view, go up a few floors.
