Just returned from 2 weeks in Poipu at Poipu Shores. This is the second time we stayed there and we love it.
We were on the second floor and the unit was lovely - extrememly well stocked kitchen (way more than any condo I've ever been in). We had great whale watching from our Lanai.
We were there 4 years ago and since then the facitiy did a few improvements - tiled walk ways and pavers by the pool. The facility is "older" and on the outside not very glamorous. I remember my first impression was of an aging motel, but like others have said, it's in a great setting, is clean and many of the units seem to be being upgraded so I think it's a very good value for the money
I agree with other posts that the pool area is small and a bunch of kids would overwhelm it - but that suits me. The neat thing about the pool is the view of the water - - you are on an overlook of the rock and surf. Hard to beat that.
The only downside to me is that you can't really get a late checkout on the day you leave - 12 is normal, if you're lucky, they'll give you til 1. With flights back to the mainland usually being LATE - mine was 9:35pm. , I wish they could be more flexible ....or I'd love if they would even install a shower room so you could hang out at the pool till mid afternoon and then change there. But - I guess that is wishful thinking!!!
Overall, at this point, I'd never stay anywhere else while in Kauai.
