Furnishings were a little dated, but location and overall accommodations were terrific. No air conditioning, but it wasn't missed; the ocean breeze more than made up for it. We'll return next year!

Room Tip: Our one-bedroom unit had 1 1/2 baths and was more than adequate for two people.

We booked a condo thru Hotels.com. I had originally requested a 1 bdrm, but found that they had upgraded us to a 2 bdrm (#122)on our late arrival. I liked this method, because we stayed 8 nights and have found that many individual rentals are for weekly periods only and require a damage deposit. Anyway, the location was perfect for us and an excellent base to tour the island. It is also a short drive from the airport. The beach (very clean) is about 200 ft. outside the glass doors, but is not swimmable because of the undercurrents. Nevertheless, a sheltered swimming area is just a short walk away. The view of the sunrise is somewhat obscured by the trees on the beach, but did not detract that much. Our friends had a 2nd floor 1 bdrm(# 217) in which the view was much better. The furnishing of #122 are nicely upgraded and have granite countertops. There are several gas grills around the resort. Be sure to buy Hawaiian beef or ahi steaks to grill. We found Safeway has the best variety. There is no AC, but you really don't need one. There are alarm clocks also, but you won't need those either. (A smiley face icon goes here!) We did need a speaker phone for a conference call during our stay, and the manager was so generous to lend us their office phone for the call. I guess because we were staying 8 nights, our condo was cleaned 3 times! What a great place! We will definitely stay here when we come back. Larry & Kelly, Georgetown, Texas

Room Tip: Request an ocean view room.

Everything was great, from the warm welcome when we checked in to the lovely room we stayed in. We had an excellent view of the pool AND the ocean. Who could ask for anything more? We have already made reservations to stay here at the end of our trip.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are wonderful. Top floors have nice breezes.

Really enjoyed our five day stay at this condo complex. The condo was well equipped and maintained, staff and residents were friendly, and the location was close to the airport yet quiet as it was surrounded by state park and golf course, and ocean front. The location provided a good jumping off point for touring the area and south part of the island before we explored the north. Would not hesitate to return to this property or refer it to others.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our stay on the ground level as it provided good access to the beach.

We have made many trips to Maui, because it is PARADISE!!!! We had many friends who kept nagging us to go to Kauai, as they said it was awesome. Well none of them have ever been to Maui, Kauai would have been OK? if we had not ever been to Maui. Kauai is absolutely NO COMPARISON TO MAUI. The beaches are awful, very rough tide, lots of trash washes in. We only found 2 beaches we could swim at safely.Poipu and Lydgate. The roads are not near most of the beaches so it can be hard to find access. Kauai is very rural. Waterfalls are beautiful. This island was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.The 4 MILE {8 mile rd trip} hike in to Hanakapi'al falls is MISERABLE!! We are good shape so we made it, but it was the most exhausting painful thing we ever did. If you are comparing where to go, Maui is the best choice by far. Stay in Kaanapali area. Maui has sooooo much more to offer.Castle Kaha Lani was a awesome condo resort if you go to Kauai.

Room Tip: All of the rooms were GREAT, all have ocean view, not like most places. Beautiful grounds, If arrivi...
