Poipu Kapili is a fabulous place. From the first time we saw Poipu Kapili we knew that was where we wanted to stay. The beauty, the calm, the peacefulness are all part of the charm. The rooms are clean and spacious, they look out on the beautiful grounds. The staff, are welcoming and helpful. The pool water feels like velvet.
We have stayed twice and are staying again in the fall. The Magnificent sunsets and the site of the turtles brings much joy.

Poipu Kapili is a wonderful place to stay on the south shore of Kauai. The resort is beautifully landscaped with gorgeous grounds just across the road from the (rocky) Pacific beach. It is an easy walk to the bars/cafes/beach of the Sheraton resort next door.

Condo #29 is on the ground floor, with the back porch looking out onto the beautiful pool perhaps thirty yards away, and beyond that, direct views of the Pacific Ocean.

The staff of Poipu Kapili is totally dedicated to their guests' satisfaction and cannot be praised too highly.

Condo #29 is decorated in a tasteful Asian bamboo motif and can only be called elegant in every way. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom which we never turned on as the nights were quite comfortable without it.

The kitchen is modern and well equipped. Laundry appliances were not accessible--a small inconvenience. We had full maid service mid-way through our stay, which was easily enough, and more than many condos offer.

Overall, our week there was a great experience and we'd love to go back!

Our first ever trip to Kauai was very memorable. Luckily we 'discovered' Poipu Kappili via TripAdvisor and are glad we did. The staff was helpful, found us a great place to eat nearby and we got to borrow some gear for tennis and utilize to the barbecue grill for another fun meal.

It is hard to get much closer to the ocean other than finding a spot to jump in. A great beach within walking distance, and really was close to everything we wanted to visit (i.e., the National Botanic Gardens, Waimea Canyon, etc). We hope to return soon and would absolutely stay again!

My husband and I just got back from staying here for 4nights.We loved everything about this place! only complaint would be the bathtub plug wouldn't plug,so no baths for me...and no air conditioner,but we knew that before staying here.wasn't that bad though.loved the tempurpedic mattress on bed and comfy pillows and bedding.loved the power of the shower head, This condo was updated and very clean too! Also loved the view on the lanai and loved the comfy couches in living room! This room came with beach chairs, Snorkle flippers,soft or hard cooler to bring to beach, and umbrellas for beach. I would stay here again.but it is pricey and is not on the beach.but just a 5 min. walk to a small little beach in front of the Sheraton hotel.

I've been traveling to Kauai annually since 1997 and have stayed at PK every trip after my first (stayed at Sheraton in '97). PK is truly a remarkable property with gorgeously maintained grounds, an amazing saltwater pool with ocean views and a great little Friday morning poolside breakfast.

PK's location is wonderful---easy walking to two eating and shopping areas, nice long morning walks to Spouting Horn to the west or Shipwreck Beach to the east. Convenient to drive to slightly farther away restaurants and very easy access to Koloa Town and the main road to get out to the eastern towns and beaches or to head west to Polihale or Waimea Canyon.

Another reviewer said it best, a home away from home. Right on the ocean you can see and hear the waves crashing 24x7 to help you forget about your mainland life for a week or two.

My husband and I stayed in condo #22. It had a nice view of the ocean and pool. The furnishings were nice. The kitchen was well stocked with things like a wine opener, knife set, and pretty much anything you would need to cook with. There were even coolers and boogie boards to use. You don’t get much of a breeze through the condo, so the air conditioner in the bed room was necessary for us to sleep. Unless you are used to the heat, it might be difficult to sleep on the sleeper sofa. The condos are walking distance to a couple beaches, a lot of good restaurants, and shopping areas.

The location of Poipu Kapili was quiet, close to shops and restaurants and well maintained. Our one bedroom condo unit (#31)was spacious, clean, well decorated and beautifully furnished. It very much felt like home for the two weeks plus that we were here.

We loved the unit and Poipu Kapili and can't wait to return.
