“Great place in Princeville”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We spent our first two nights here and wish we could have spent the rest of our stay but our party's size out grew the unit's maximum occupancy of 6. The resort was very beautiful and peaceful. The unit we had was very comfortable with all the amenities of home. We didn't have to go out and buy a bunch of condiments etc. The checkin process and instructions etc. was very organized and smooth. There seem to be a lot of rules and "don'ts" which could make it kind of stressful for parents with small children but I guess this helps extend the life of the resort. That being said it was great for my wife and I and our three mature daughters. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 1221 which was a second floor unit overlooking the pool.

This was my 5th trip to Kauai and have stayed at several other hotels and condos during those visits. This was my first time staying at the Plantation.

We stayed in condo 1611. The condo itself was very nice and spacious, although the air conditioner was not sufficient for the living space. The unit backs up against a busy road and is adjacent to a garbage dumpster. We were awaken by people throwing their trash away at 4 a.m.

I will not be retuning to the Plantation because of an encounter with the "manager" of the property who was extremely rude when he approached us at the community pool area one evening. I felt like I was being questioned by the police when he demanded to see our pool key and quizzed me on my u it number. The community gas bbq at the pool was terrible and failed to light, so don't plan in grilling very much. There are so many rules posted on signs at this property it really is annoying,


I will not be returning to these condos on my next visit.

We've stayed in a number of locations on Kauai over the past few years and found this condo to be a good value. It was well stocked with beach towels and beach chairs and had a nice interior.

I would recommend it.

The Plantation is an incredible value. We stayed this week with 6 people, 3 couples who all need their space. We wanted to stay on the north side to make it easier to start the Kalalau Trail easier, and had difficulty finding a 3-room, 3-bathroom condo. Unit 1422 was a gem. Yes, you can trust the advertised price!
-Service was excellent. They dropped off the unit keys at the airport car rental so we didn't have to go out of our way. The 3rd room has 2 double beds that they promptly pushed together and rebedded. Never intrusive, always available. We had no difficulty dropping off the keys in the dropbox after our stay.
-The unit was updated and comfortable. Updated appliances with toaster, microwave, large refrigerator, electric range, washing machine. Complete with expected kitchen amenities, pots/pans, utensils, bowls/plates/cups, even dish soap and dishwasher soap. Bathrooms all had soap/shampoo/conditioner, hairdriers. Washer/Dryer with detergent. Our unit again, was complete.
-We didn't have a single issue with road or chicken noise. Yes, there are many chickens in Kauai, but somehow this is a little chicken-free oasis. Believe me, this may seem silly, but nighttime chicken noise is frustrating in Kauai.
-Large, comfortable covered balcony. We were outside more than inside, no issues with mosquitoes.
-Small pool and hot tub. Our family is very active, so we didn't mind the small pool. Did use the hot tub on several occasions which was wonderful.
-Grill on property- made those steaks taste fantastic. Can be busy, but the other tenants were very gracious and were happy to share the large grill.
-HDTV cable service. Great for watching sports. Also has DVD player, and flat screens in 2 of the 3 bedrooms.
-No air-conditioning. With the Hawaii winds, we never needed it, but this may be important for some.
-Located on the Princeville property, next to the golf course, walking distance to the St. Regis, short drive to a local shopping center with a large grocery store, bar, ice cream/shaved ice stands. Great location.
-No ocean view, which for us was also not a problem as we were always on the move. This again may be a problem for some.
Overall, great value, comfortable well-stocked condo, friendly unobtrusive service, great location on the north side. We'd definitely come again.

Room Tip: Unit 1422 is on the 2nd floor which is better for noise. The 1st floor has some noise issues.

Had terrific time at this beautifully decorated condo. They furnished all the amenities one could ask for to make a vacation fun: bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas for the outdoors. Then indoors, we had cable TV, WiFi network for my laptop and a kitchen with everything I needed to cook delicious local fish and create fresh fruit smoothies. I'm already planning a return trip. All this, and comfortable beds too.

Room Tip: This specific unit is not bordered by a busy road, so we weren't bothered by car noises.

We loved our condo in Princeville! Princeville is a lovely resort area with very nicely kept
grounds. If you want a quiet getaway, this is the place! The condo was exceptionally clean and well stocked with everything from kitchen supplies to beach activities! It was so nice not to have to rent anything for our beach excursions..thank you! The condo is very accommodating for families and small groups as with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, we had plenty of room! The beds were very comfortable and the master bedroom and bath was amazing! We loved swimming in the pool at night after a full day of activities and dinner and we were usually the only ones in there! The workout room was great too. Hanalei town and Hanalei bay is not far away and a great beach for boggie boarding and swimming. I read every review before we stayed here and all the compliments people made were absolutely true! The only negative I read was to have maybe one more barbecue at the pool. We did not have that problem as we only saw one other person using it. This may be true during the busier times. All in all we loved our stay here and would recommend to all!

The Plantation condo we rented was beautiful and comfortable, but ruined by two things: road noise and terrible service. The main Princeville road was right behind the unit, so road noise and headlights all night long were an issue. Worse, the staff was very rude, dropping notes on our vehicle that we were not allowed to park outside the unit, even though the written condo guide inside the unit told us to do so. When we pointed this out, the comments were impolite to say the least. A written complaint to management was never answered. We will not return. There are too many other condo choices at Princeville.
