“Average stay but needs improvement...”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our family of five(4 adults, one teenager) stayed in Manualoha 805 for a week in July 2016. This was our first stay in the Manualoha complex. We have stayed previously at the Regency and Nihi Kai Villas. We loved the layout and location of this unit. The unit offers a beautiful view of the mountains and is set back away from the public pathway offering privacy and quietness. The second floor is the master bedroom and bath allowing privacy for a couple. That being said we were,however, disappointed with the cleanliness and the maintenance of the unit. Shortly after checking in we had to make a request for one of the bedroom windows to be repaired. It would not open and this was unacceptable because this was the only window in the bedroom besides a ceiling fan that provided aeration. We also found ants crawling on the sofa bed which originated from a dead, large cockroach found behind the sofa. We ended up vacuuming the entire living area. There were also ants crawling on the kitchen counter. If you are accustomed to living in a cool environment, this unit will not be comfortable. There is no AC only ceiling fans which could be replaced due to age? The heat can be very,very miserable!! The only cool area in this unit is the living room near the sliding doors that allow the trade winds in. Even a portable table top fan did not do anything to cool the unit down. Be aware that the kitchen ware(dishes, pots and pans) are limited. We love vacationing in Poipu but will probably stay in another unit in the Manualoha or in another complex in the Poipu Kai Resort. We booked this unit through Suite Paradise without any problems-would recommend them.

Aloha TripAdvisor Member,

Our staff at Suite Paradise is happy to learn that you always enjoy your stay with us in Poipu Beach. We work hard to provide you with a clean beach villa that is well stocked with the paper goods and other disposable items you might need to get you started on your vacation. Our goal is to help you get settled into your island home without having to run to the store at the beginning of your visit. Guests with longer stays do at times need to replenish items during their stay. There is also an option to have our housekeepers come in during your stay to make the condo look as it did when you checked in and replenish all the supplies. As you noted, we do have a fabulous staff that is available to you throughout your stay. They can provide you with any portable fans you might need to make you more comfortable in your vacation home. During your next visit, simply call our front desk for assistance.

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi

“Great stay at a wonderful location”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

When we walked into the unit and went upstairs to see the master we felt that we had won the lottery. This unit is very large and comfortable. The master bedroom suite upstairs is nicer and larger than our bedroom at home with 2 balconies and a large washroom. On the main floor is another decent sized bedroom that has two singles that we had put together for the second couple. There is also a hide a bed in the living room. The unit felt very comfortable for our group of 5. The kitchen worked well. We had a few minor issues along the way, which were quickly dealt with by a simple call to the reception at Suite Paradise. There were some other reviews that commented that it was wired only. I took along a small wireless router, plugged it in and registered the router to the internet and we had wireless router in the suite, which kept everyone happy. The listing says garden view, there are some peak a boo views of the ocean, and honestly, it is a pleasant less than 10 minute walk to two great beaches. We were very satisfied with our stay and will definately consider this unit again. It was our second stay in the Manualoha section of Poipu Kai.

Aloha Debbiekak,

It's nice to receive a detailed review from a return guest to our Poipu Kai Resort. We're sorry we were so booked up during the time you wanted to vacation in Kauai. Indeed, this sometimes makes it impossible for us to guarantee a specific unit for your stay and sometimes makes it necessary for us to split your time between two condos. Because we have great demand for our resort accommodations, we encourage guests to book as far in advance as they can so we can better try to fulfill their requests. On many occasions, our departing guests leave unopened food in their condos and housekeeping automatically removes these items to provide a clean beach resort for the next visiting guest. Our housekeepers evidently did not know that you wanted to keep those supplies left behind when you moved. In the future, please let our front desk know your desires and we would be happy to hold these items for you until you get situated in your new condo. Also our housekeeping staff is available throughout your stay for any cleanliness issues you might have including addressing the dead gnats in your downstairs bathroom. Merely pick up the phone and call Suite Paradise for assistance. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of your condo with its lovely pool, beautiful beach and updated kitchen, and we hope to see you again in the near future at one of our Poipu Kai Resort offerings.

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi
