Historical Traveler Reviews Poipu Plantation Resort
Can't please everyone
I was compelled to write this after reading a review of November 5. My wife and I have stayed at the Poipu Plantation on two occasions, most recently this last month. I called the staff about this review as it did not sound like "our Poipu Plantation".
Graciously, the Manager admitted that they had honeymoon guests that left early, complaining of their pillow. They had wanted an ocean view from their room, that had not been available when they reserved.
Let us assure you that Poipu Plantation is a wonderful place to stay, great prices and lovely rooms. The linens have always been new and fresh and our unit was well maintained.
This is our home away from home on Kauai!
Only if you are on a budget
I booked 7 nights at the Poipu Plantation for my wife and I to spend the second leg of our two week honeymoon. One of the main reasons I chose the Plantation was the mostly positive reviews I saw here and on other related websites. But, let me say that our experience was nothing like some of the glowing reviews I have seen here.
First, let me start on a positive note by saying that the accomodations were spacious and clean. The living room had high ceilings with ceiling fans and our bedroom had sliding wood doors -- very Dojo. Also, the staff left a box of chocolates and a few fresh cut flowers on our bed because it was our honeymoon -- a welcoming touch.
Now for the not so good. First, and foremost, our bed linens were musty and left our hair and clothes smelling like wet dog. The bathroom looked more like a student apartment bathroom complete with missing tiles and a 1960's sink. The air conditioner was loud and woke us up each time it turned on and off.
The bottom line here is unless you are a budget traveler, you might want to skip this spot.
One other important note, the manager did fully refund our money for the unused nights, and that derserves mentioning.
Will come back again...
My husband and I stayed here for our one year anniversary and were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations in the Ali'i Suite at the Poipu Plantation Resort. The living space/bath was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated (A/C was a big plus during our July 2004 trip). The daily breakfasts were a great way to start the day. The staff was very knowledgeable and gave us helpful advice to see the island. Also, the main office keeps a supply of coolers, mats, umbrellas, etc. for guests to borrow on their day trips. Great value....we would come back again.
Not luxuriuos, but good price
This was a nice place stay for the price, and close to the beach. I was a little scared about it when I went into the front office, but the rooms are much nicer than the office. It would be a good place to go and stay awhile since there is a kitchen in some rooms. Tthe rooms were clean, the only major complaint I had was the bathroom definitely needed some updating.
Best Place to Spend a Honeymoon or any Vacation!!
My wife and I stayed in the B&B at Poipu Plantation from July 2 to July 7, 2004 while on our honeymoon. We absolutely adored the place. The room was very clean and spacious with a private Lanai. The staff for the B&B were extremely friendly and helpful with information about island activities and resturants. We awoke daily to the smell of fresh breakfast which was served on the screened in front porch. When we returned after a day out, we walked into a room that was cleaned and fresh flowers on pillows and tables. It is conveniently located to Poipu Beach and many great resturants.
I would highly recommend staying here over any of the resorts, unless of course you plan on spending your time by a pool and not seeing the most beautiful island in the Pacific (why come here if this is the case). Poipu Plantation is very cheap in price but top notch in quality and hospitality. We will be staying here again in the future.
A Perfect Honeymoon
My wife and I stayed at Poipu Plantation for part of our honeymoon in Hawaii and it was by far the highlight! Kauai is beautiful and so easy to enjoy from such a wonderful B&B. Our room (the Ali'i Suite) was beautifully prepared with fresh plumeria all over, and leis on the bed.
The room was quite perfect and very comfortable. The staff was also extremely helpful and curtious, and full of suggestions on what to see.
Additionally, the breakfast was very enjoyable every morning. My wife and I are already planning our next trip to Kauai and can't wait to go back to the Poipu planatation. Be aware though, you will want a car for many reasons, one of which is it is much easier to go to the prime beach spots.
Awesome honeymoon and best trip ever!
My wife and I spent 7 days on Kauai 6/1-6/8/03 at the Poipu Plantation House, Ali honeymoon suite. It was fabulous. For $160/nite, we had our own private suite with deck, 2 person indoor whirlpool, gorgeous bathroom, an incredible breakfast prepared every morning by our host Javed, who also served as our activities coordinator. The house is a short walk to the beach, and the house has coolers, umbrellas, mats, and other beach equipment you can borrow. This is a great option if you want to avoid the big hotel scene and want to stay on the South Shore.Highlights: 1) Dinner at Beach House restaurant: amazing oceanfront dining. Don t miss the sunset. 2) Dinner at Roy s. No view, but the seafood is incredible. 3) Relaxing and swimming at Kee Beach & Poipu Beach (in front of Sheraton) 4) Hiking and the incredible views from the Naapali Coast. If you can only do the Kalalau Trail two miles to Hanakapiai Beach, even that is spectacular. 5) Helicopter tour of the island. Expensive, but a once in a lifetime experience 6) Hiking to the secret waterfall at Fern Grotto. Rent kayak from Kamokila Hawaiian Village. 7) Shave ice at JoJo's Clubhouse 8) Poke (seasoned raw tuna) at the Koloa Fish market
The ONLY place to stay in Kauai!!!!
We stayed at the Poipu Plantation for our honeymoon (Aug 2002) in the Ali'i Suite. This is the best place to stay - it was perfect. The room was beautiful, the location was perfect, the breakfasts were great, the staff was wonderful. Kauai is heaven on earth and the Poipu Plantation was amazing. The views of the ocean were so beautiful. We will definitely be visiting Kauai again and will head right back to this bed and breakfast.
Dream come true
If you want a romantic getaway to a great island go to Kauai and stay at the poipu plantation bed and breakfast. We went on our honeymoon and had the best time of our lives. Large, spacious rooms, wonderful breakfasts, and friendly staff are only a few of the things that made this stay great. Kauai is a incrediable island, many great beaches and sights. It was the best trip ever taken!
Great place to stay and great price too!
My husband and I stayed at the Poipu Plantation Resort (April 2003). We were a little nervous about picking a bed and breakfast but we could not have been more pleased. We stayed in the Ali'i Suite which was very large and spacious with a great lanai (porch) where we could sit and see the ocean. We were treated to a full breakfast every morning that was delicious. The location was perfect and we were just a short walk to the gorgeous Poipu Beach. Plus, we thought the price was extremely reasonable. I would definitely stay at the Poipu Plantation Resort again!

... it at the cottage rather than bring a Kirkland brand wine to a fancy restaurant, but decided it would be amusing to see the waiters reaction when we pulled it out of our bag. And she didn't disappoint. We explained that it was our last day and we didn't want the bottle to go to waste, and she understood completely, waiving the corkage fee for us and opening the bottle with an exaggerated flourish, as if it were the most ...
Even though we were still on California time, we had trouble getting on the road before 8am Hawaii time. But by 8:30, my sister and BIL, the girls, and Marion and I were in our minivan and on the road. We headed north from Poipu, through Koloa, and back to Lihue. From there, we took Highway 56 (the Kuhio Highway) along the coast around the west side of the island to the town of Kapaa. We stopped there for coffee at Java Kai, a local coffee shop with a charming ...
... we got to the Nepali coast, our captain Drew described the various areas along the coast. We encountered a huge pod of dolphins, turtles, and sea caves. The Holo Holo is a 65 foot catamaran. The captain took this ship inside several of the sea caves - just barely fit. On one of the sea caves, there was a waterfall which allowed us to refresh ourselves by getting under it.
... from the wind and waves. But there were a fair number of fish and we both enjoyed the exercise. One side of the beach is a little more exposed, and Craig spent more time there than Phyllis, who spent the second half of her outing on the shallower more protected side with the other wimps. No sea turtles today, unfortunately; there had been one in these waters when we walked over here a few days ago.

After snorkelling everyone is hungry so we came home to get changed and grab a bite to eat then headed out to ...
