Positive Reviews

A true tropical paradise

If there's one thing that gives these condos the 'wow' factor, it's the view. Facing the waters of the Pacific, guests reported glimpsing sea turtles and seals as well as beautiful sunset views. Beach lovers and snorkellers were happy here too, as this well-appointed property is steps away from Poipu Beach.

Good for couples and families

The tropical surroundings definitely set the scene for romance and this property is popular with couples. Having said that, many visitors found that, as there are so many activities to enjoy in the local area, it is also a great place for families.

Thoughtful touches enhance experience

While many raved about the setting, others also found that their stay was enhanced by the resort's staff and amenities. The fully-equipped kitchens were a real boon and the daily maid-service was also much appreciated. Guests also commented on the friendly and helpful reception staff.

Negative Reviews

Stuffy rooms and kitchen

Though many found it difficult to fault any aspect of their stay, there is still some room for improvement here. In certain units, some guests found the upstairs bedrooms to be rather airless and stuffy while others felt that a fan in the kitchen wouldn't go amiss. Some also commented on a lack of air conditioning at this resort.

More DVDs and larger towels

These units come with entertainment centers, which families with children found to be particularly handy. Many commented, however, that a wider selection of DVDs would be welcome. While the daily maid-service garnered positive reviews, some found the towel's to be too small for their liking.

Dated décor and stained carpets

Despite the tropical view, a number of guests found the décor to be tired and dated. There were also a few reports of stained furniture and carpets here.
