We had a 10 night stay from 5/31 to 6/10. The villas are absolutely beautiful! We stayed in a 2br 2ba villa with an ocean view in building one on the third floor. Building one is adjacent to the lobby area of the resort. I won't tell you how beautiful the villas are inside because mostly every review mentions it. I will though give you information that most individuals don't post. As like my other reviews, they tend to be fairly long but hopefully it will be helpful to you.

We arrived at our villa around 7:30pm and got acquainted with the living arrangements. Like everyone says, it is absolutely beautiful with high end appliances. We did find that there was a small trim piece on the dishwasher fell off and one of the safes malfunction (battery needed to be replaced. I called the front desk and the facility's engineers were there in 10 minutes and took care of the minor issues. I ask what their work hours were and I believe it is from 7:30am to 11:30pm. Good to know if you have mechanical issues that need tending to.

As for kitchen accessories, there's a cuisinart blender, coffee maker, toaster, and electric hand mixer. My suggestion for the resort would be to supply a rice cooker for asian guests like ourselves. That wasn't a problem for us as we just used a pot to cook rice - a rice cooker would have be very convenient.

The kitchen is stocked with more than enough silverware, plates, cups, bowls, knives, and cutting board. They also supply you with dishwasher detergent, dish washing liquid, sponge, coffee, and we also had left over laundry detergent from a previous guest. There were enough pots and pans to cook your meals, however don't expect to have as many as you have at home. They also provide you enough mixing and storage bowls.

The stove is electric so if you normally cook with a gas stove, it will take some getting used to. New stoves today have a lock mode on them as the one in the villa. If you find that the stove is in the lock mode, hold the lock button down for about five seconds and it will unlock. The refrigerator has a double freezer below to store food. The oven is a convection oven that makes baking/roasting quicker and evenly. In our kitchen, in a drawer right under the oven were all the user guides arranged neatly in a binder. So if you don't know how to use an appliance it's all there for you.

I live in San Francisco where we never use air conditioning. The villa has central air conditioning and in addition, ceiling fans in every room. When the air conditioning turns on, you could hear it blowing in your room. I'm not sure if that's how central air is suppose to be but we got used to it after one night - it was like white noise afterwards. It would be great if the air conditioning had zones to cool each room individually, however we figured out the perfect setting that was comfortable for everyone.

Koloa Landing is a "Green" resort so they're into conservation. If you want the housekeeper to change your bedding daily, there's a post card on one of the night stands that you need to place on the bed, and they'll change your bedding. Otherwise they will change your bedding every third day. Same with your towels, place the towels on the floor if you what them replaced.

The grounds have a basketball hoop, putting green, and soccer area. Everything that you need to play is supplied right there on site. There are two pools, one for family and the other is a tranquility pool for adults only.

The resort is not on the beach however it's only a short walk from the resort. There are two ways to get there. One way is as you walk out from the entrance driveway, turn right and walk to the end of the block, turn right again and once you get to the end of the block, you will reach the Sheraton Hotel which is the beginning of Po'ipu Beach.

The other way to get to the beach is from the back end of the parking lot (next to building 9). There's a path that brings you to the road that leads to the beach. As you get to the road, make a left and follow it down until you reach the Sheraton Hotel. Both ways is less than a 10 minute walk.

If you're interested in a shopping area that's walking distance from the hotel, as you walk out from the front entrance driveway, walk left and follow the sidewalk until it ends (where the turning circle is), this will bring you to Kukui'ula shopping area. I find these shops cater to tourist and a little pricey. You will find a couple of bars if you want to sit and relax and have a few drinks. Across from the Kukui'ula, on the other side of the circle, you will find "Da Crack".
Two things that is recommended to order there is the Chipotle Shrimp burrito and Pork burrito. Right next to Da Crack is a little market to pick up odds and ends.

If you are an early riser like we are and like to either jog of walk, from the resort, take the same left from the driveway entrance and follow sidewalk to the Kukui'ula and follow the signs to "Spouting Horn". It is two miles to the "Spouting Horn". The area is very scenic. You will pass a sacred Hawaiian grounds, very nice homes, golf course, a boat dock, then you'll reach the "Spouting Horn".

To sum it up, the resort has the "Aloha Spirit". Very friendly staff, quiet surroundings (you'll get used to the roosters crowing - they're all over the island no matter where you go), the staff caters to your every need and of course the beautiful villa your home away from home.

Tip: If this is you first time in Kauai like us, you will save a lot of money buying your large food items at Costco (15 minute drive in Lihue) and smaller items at Big Save (5 minute drive - old town Koloa). The average per person we spent to eat at a restaurant was around $25.00 per person per meal not including tip - there were 5 of us traveling. We only ate out a couple of times and most of the time we cooked. We spent around $400 for food and that covered all meals for all 10 full days of our stay. You do the math...

We will be back next year for 15 nights - This is how much we love this resort and Kauai.

Room Tip: I suggest to stay on the upper floors as the cost difference isn't too much more between stayin...

Great vacation at Wyndham in Poipu. Our elevator was out the day of our arrival but operable the following day. Condo was nice and spacious with nice full kitchen and spacious lanai. I would definitely recommend staying at a condo to save money on food and have the comforts of home. The property has 4 BBQ grills, 2 are located at each pool which makes it nice to grill out for dinner.

Close to beach, shops and restaurants makes this the perfect location.WE would definitely stay at this location again.

Staff was attentive to our needs and property was gorgeous. Thank you for your hospitality!

What a fantastic time our family of 4 had at this gorgeous resort. The staff was friendly and accommodating at every turn. When they brought us a bottle of complimentary wine they even asked us "red or white?" Our huge villa was luxuriously furnished yet felt like a cozy home. We cooked many meals in the kitchen and enjoyed the grassy expanse right outside our big sliding doors. We packed our days with all that was at our disposal: Volleyball, the putting green, the fitness center (with its awesome view), the business center, the marketplace (yum), the Lagoon Pool barbecue (we grilled pineapple and fresh ono), the Beach Club rentals and Miguel the super savvy concierge. We snorkeled, zip-lined, and drove to Ke'e Beach and back. We had epic basketball games in the Lagoon Pool with our girls and took goofy underwater photos in the tranquility pool. Fun, fun, fun. We will be back.

We had a really great 5 day stay at Koloa Landing. The 2 bed apartment we booked was luxurious and had everything we needed for a comfortable self catering break. We were on the ground floor overlooking the large, beautiful pool. The resort has superb facilities for families and the telescope in the lobby was a lovely touch.

Unfortunately some parents chose to leave their kids alone by the pool (young kids aged approx 7-9), and there are a lot of roosters roaming the resort (as everywhere in Kauai) which woke us at 5am everyday. The resort seemed understaffed so when there was an issue, although the staff were very pleasant, there was sometimes no one around to sort it out.

I would return to this resort for the lovely apartments, the facilities and the location but I would request a quiet room away from the pool and high up so the roosters were a little further from my bed!

First time in Kauai and by extension Koloa Landing. The property is a great place for rest and relaxation. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Ashley at the front desk was very helpful as was Miguel at concierge. There are 2 pools on the property. One is smaller and reserved for adults only. Both pools have BBQ's available for grilling. Rooms are spacious and welcoming. Beware there are roosters and chickens everywhere but such is life in Kauai! :) They have a great fitness room as well. One thing about the property which is rather unusual is each room is limited to 2 free Wi-Fi connections (i.e a cell phone and computer would be 2) and anything over that is $9.95 per day for unlimited extra connections. Considering what you are paying per night this seems rather petty. Excluding the Wi-Fi pettiness the overall experience was excellent. Would stay here again! FYI Poipu Beach is a good 15 minute walk or 5 min by car.
