Which Hotel? I'm between three choices.

Hi all! I have spent a long time researching places for our honeymoon. We are staying for a full week in May. I have narrowed my options to the following 3 hotels in Poipu. Any positives or negative experiences with them or any recomendations? Thanks!

1. Sheraton Kauai Resort (my current pick)

2. Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation Condominium

3. Castle Makahuena at Poipu Condominium

Well, Kiahuna and Makahuena are condos, not hotels. So it really is like comparing apples and oranges. The beach in front of the Sheraton and Kiahuna (right next door) is fabulous. Makahuena is up on the bluff with stunning ocean views but a bit of a hike to the beach. I guess it depends on what you are looking for. A condo will have more room to spread out with a full kitchen. We actually prefer staying in a condo while on Kauai but there are perks to staying in a full service hotel like room service and a fitness center.

For a honeymoon I would pick the Sheraton, when you have kids come back and stay in a condo. When you make your reservation just make sure your honeymoon is noted in your record. May isn't typically full so you run the chance of getting upgraded. (Just don't expect it!)

Another vote for Sheraton. It's on a great beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. We've stayed at the Sheraton, but now stay at Kiahuna Plantation since we like having a kitchen and a little more room.
