If you plan to visit Kauai consider Banyan Harbor Resort. It's affordable and a short drive from the Lihue airport. There's an outdoor pool, two bedroom apartments with full kitchen, cable tv, wifi, washer and dryer. The concierge is very energetic and helpful with info on island attractions. Banyan is a 5 minute walk to bar/restaurants, a small shopping mall...

This well established and maintained resort was a very pleasant surprise. We only booked three days as a fill in between other bookings. Next year we will plan to stay longer. We also liked the location and the helpful office staff.

We stayed in January 2017, in a two bedroom two story place. It was really well equipped with kitchen stuff. It was comfortable, clean, lots of space. our unit was updated, had Jacuzzi tub in master suite, washer and dryer. Easy location, close to harbor. Obviously, like anywhere in Kauai you need a vehicle.

Good location to get everywhere. Keke is the lady at the front desk. She is super fun and helpful. She saw us on her day off while we were shopping and drew us a map to a pier near by. All the staff were helpful and pleasant. The property is clean and the suites were clean. You hear city noise...

Mahalo for your comments about our "Activitys Wonder Women" Kiki....

I just finished spending three weeks at the Banyan Harbor Resort in Lihue, Kauai and loved the place. With professional friendly staff in a very clean environment (rooms & grounds), it made the stay very enjoyable when I arrived back from Kalapaki Beach every day or after traveling around the Island. Even before I arrived, the Reception Staff (Krystle &...

Exceptional staff from the security to the cleaning staff. An extra special tribute to Kiki the conceirage who assisted with tours and activities to participant in.

Our last two nights on Kauai were spent here and it was great! The staff is very nice and accommodating. The bed is comfy, the view from the living room is good, from the upstairs bedroom it's even better. Walking distance to a beach and restaurants.

My husband, daughter, her husband and grandchildren stayed in December, 2016. We were disappointed. The bedrooms were so small that you could barely turn around.

This is not a high-end super new condo! So don't book this if that is what you want. This is instead a well-established, comfortable, centrally located condo development, with all necessities nearby- groceries and services.
