We booked our unit through Redweek. Our one week stay was 2000.00. We stayed in the 2700 sq.ft. penthouse. It has 3BR, 3 1/2 Bath, Large dining room that seats 10 at the table, 4 televisions, huge kitchen and pantry, breakfast area, seperate laundry room, several walk-in closets, and a wrap-around lanai with table, chairs, and several loungers. The view of the ocean was spectactular. The main BR had a jacuzzi tub. All bedrooms were like their own little suites attached to the common area so there was lots of privacy. The furniture was nice. All of the soaps and lotions came from Bath and Body Works. Very nice stuff.
The resort pool was pretty cool, gently sloping to the deepish end(4 ft). It had a volleyball court and a lane for swimming but you have to get there real early for that. Of course, chairs are hard to find except for the 30 empty ones with someones towel on it. The resort has a policy where if your stuff is unattended for 45 minutes, it goes to lost and found. Just ask someone at the towel hut to find you some chairs and they will. The jacuzzi by the pool is nice but not real hot. There is another jacuzzi on the grounds that they have cranked up for heat lovers like me.
The pool bar is averaged priced. Cheap by Hawaii standards, but definitely not the cheapest on the isalnd. I started bringing my own drinks by day 2 because the cocktail service was incredibly SLOW. You might see someone once in 2-3 hours. The food at the pool bar was pretty good for snacking on. Try the quesadillas.
The beach by the resort is jagged and rough so there is no swimming. But you can see lots of turtles and whales. Next door at the Hyatt has a beach but its more for surfers and not too good for swimming either. If you want to swim and snorkel, don't waste you time with Poipu. Go straight up to Princeville and Hanalei. The bay up there is incredible! Snorkeling is great there.
As far as restaurants go, The Hyatt has a great Sunday Brunch and a wonderful Luau. It's well worth the price. Kioki's is another really good restaurant. Get a reservation if you can because they are always booked up and the wait is LONG. Avoid Poipu Burgers at all cost.
