“Best kept secret in Poipu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2011

I recently returned from a vacation at the Poipu Plantation Resort -- what a relaxing and comfortable place to stay on Kauai! I've previously stay in the Plantation's 2-bedroom suites, but this time I stayed in the Ilima suite, which I found to be even more enjoyable. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom was newly renovated -- two very important aspects of lodging anywhere. The Ilima suite will be seeing me again on my return to Poipu Beach next fall. The hospitality so generously offered by the management team and the proprietors Chris and Javed, at the Poipu Plantation is unbeatable!!

Room Tip: For a one-bedroom visit, the Ilima suite is ideal!

As mentioned in every other review I've read, the staff is great! Really helpful and does everything they can to make your stay as good as possible. This is for you who would like something different from the boring old chain hotels, this place got charm!!
We stayed in one of the apartments; they are spacious and got everything you need. The AC was a bit loud, but that’s our only complaint! Took us about 5 minutes to walk to the beach, and another 5 minutes you are at Brennecke’s.
Brennecke’s serves lunch and dinner (ate dinner there 3 nights and it was really good food and service every night!), they also have a small deli on the ground floor, open from 7am till late. Next to it you can book tours, boat trips etc. There’s also a shopping area not far from the hotel, we walked once and took us about half hour. There you can get pretty much everything you need.
You need a car if you stay anywhere in Poipu so RENT A CAR AT THE AIRPORT! We didn’t (bad planning, I know!), but we found out that both the Hyatt and Sheraton have hire cars, although a bit more expensive than if you get it at the airport. Took us probably 20-30 mins to walk to the Hyatt so no drama:)
We will definitely go back to Kauai, and we will stay at Poipu Plantation Resort again!

1st trip to Kauai ever. Stayed in Royal Ali'i Suite for four nights. We will stay again when we go back. We had very high expectations because of this website and they were met. Melissa and Javed are very helpful answering any questions you may have. Highly recommend to anyone. Beach is just a short walk away. Great location. My favorite thing was sitting on the porch at night looking at sky and listening to the ocean. The Royal Ali'i Suite is bigger than I thought it would be. A lot of positives about this place, very few negatives. There were only two things I didn't care for in four days. I understand it is hard to please everyone for the breakfasts, but there is no options for breakfast, and the portions are small. The only other negative was that it was windy and there is a little gap between the frame of the window and the window itself in the bedroom and it was annoying all night until I had to plug a piece of paper to solidify the gap. All in all a great place though!

Well done to Javed and all the crew at Poipu for making my stay truly memorable!! This really was quite a find..Easy walking distance to main Poipu beach and the restaurants and VERY HELPFUL information from the computer database called javed..He knows everything about Maui,...Just ask. Breakfast in the B and B is a real treat---treated like royalty...This will be my Kauai resort in future.....Thanks to all!!!

Room Tip: If not self catering the B and B is EXCELLENT

This was our second stay -- and we'll back back for many more, we hope. It's location is excellent, 3 minutes walk from the beach. The rooms are first-rate, clean, airy, relaxing. But what makes this place so special is the staff -- couldn't be more friendly and helpful. We even got a big bag of free mangos and huge avocados from the delightful woman at the front desk. You feel pampered, but also feel like family -- a wonderful combination!

Great Place. Larger than expected suite that was immaculate. The owner can direct you to which kayak company you should use depending on what you want to see. He's a local who knows everything & seems to have done everything. He can also tell you about what you see on which hikes, what time you should get to them, & how to see if they are right for you.
Incredible staff. Had to cut our vacation short and rush out because of a family emrgency. Left my wallet in the suite and didn't realize it until after we turned in the rental car. The wonderful woman who picked up the phone found my wallet and delivered it to me at Lihue airport in time for us to catch our plane (under an hour).

Need I say more? Can't wait to return.

My family stayed here in June 2010 for 1 week. We had a 2 bedroom Ocean View condo. While it isn't right on the ocean it's about a 3 min walk to the water. Excellent value for what you get. Condo was very nice and clean! Staff was very helpful and friendly. I loved that they had beach chairs, towels, coolers, suntan lotion all available to use each day for free! Very nice perk as most days we were spending the day on a different beach on the island. Highly recommend this condo, can't wait until I can return one day, will stay here for sure!!
