... a breeze, but we decided not to wait in line to ask about Nick's lost sunglasses. The lines for security at the Lihue airport were much longer than at Austin. I don't know if the machines were more sensitive or just different. A good portion of the people were being patted down after going through the scanner including me. They also had to run a few bins through their xray machine twice. It took a lot longer than I expected, but we had arrived early so it was ok. Finally ...
... was nothing. I was pretty upset about yet another visitor unfriendly aspect to Kauai. Being our anniversary, I wanted this day to off without me crying, so I suggested we find something else to do.
We had not yet seen Poipu Beach, so that is where we decided to go. It is a really nice park. There is a lot of space, parking is not hard to find, and picnic tables are a plus. We walked along the water for a while and watched the people playing in the water. Finally, we sat down ...
... best coconut syrup. Back here and decided later to go to the west to swim. The weather is not good here again. First stop in Kalaheo, where we now plan to stay next year, and had the best beef stew at the Kauai Kookie. We walked through what could be considered a town and think it will be a good adventure. We ended up at Salt beach and the water was warm and we both went in. This is a locals beach and as it was the weekend it was packed but we had a good time. ...
Well Dave has got the hang of what I call honeymoon: today we sat at the pool all day and worked...on our sunburns, on ordering from the pool bar, on getting new towels every time we got in and out of the hot tub and I, working harder of course: getting a massage.
What a glorious day! And it doesn't end there....we had the most magical night I have ever had in my life next to our amazing wedding.
Tonight Dave took me to the Beach House, one of the ...
... but not cars. Maybe it was just the windiness and the hilliness.
After the Canyon, some of our crew decided they needed to shop, so we dropped them off and Levi, Marcelo and I carried on exploring. We found a couple of waterfalls and a river, but soon ran out of time. The downside to a cruise is limited exploring time.
The next sea day we had our choir performance, the all time greats ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Plantation Hale Suites Kapaa
My husband and I went to the Best Western last minute due to rain and poor camping conditions in August 2004. We were very pleasantly surprised! Great value, super clean, better than the Kapaa Sands Condos right down the road (which had roaches). Three clean, decent pools to choose from but it is not right on the beach. Great place to exploe the island and the aloha treatmant was exeptional. If you are not looking for seclusion or a romantic hideaway (go to Kevin Donelly's place in Kepuhi Beach on Molokai for that), but need a really nice, well- maintained condo in a convenient spot on Kauai, this is the place. It has everything you need, coffee and coffe maker, microwave, stove, bottle opener for the wine, etc... We don't have any, but it's kid friendly too! Well recommended.
Great place for the area and price!
My husband and I stayed here from 4/17/04 to 4/21/04. Our unit was C-1. Really nice, clean condo. Full washer and dryers (2ea.) down the hall. Our view was just an open field out to the sea. Easy walk to the beach. The beach is coarse sand with a multitude of concrete slabs mostle under sand. Great for families or singles! Have fun.
Well, I selected this place based mostly on others reviews on this site. I am not sure WHERE they were staying, but the unit I was in was fairly nasty. We even had a huge cockroach running across the ceiling. Oh yea, and when we glanced behind the dresser we saw three more dead (I hope) cockroaches. The grounds are clean but the rooms are VERY old and could be cleaner. You could probably do much better elsewhere. Kapaa is a very touristy part of the island and has a sort of "dirty" feel to it. But, it is an ideal location to be in so that you can travel to the north and south part of the island. To stay in the north or south woul d be nicer, but a much longer ride to the other. The beach near Plantation Hale is unswimmable. Okay for walking on though. If I returned I would not stay here. The Radisson would probably be a better choice.
This hotel was a great value. I booked through Expedia and got a package with mid-sized car from Hertz for about $130 per night during high season (March 04). I thought the hotel was clean, comfortable and very convenient for sightseeing on Kauai. This particular trip to Kauai was relatively short, and we picked this property because it was convenient to both the north shore and the south/western sides of the island. There is a little road noise from the highway, but it was not distracting. There are some chickens/roosters roaming the property, and the resident rooster made sure we were up with the sun...but from the looks of things around the island, I don't think that is unique to this property. We were able to walk to the Coconut Marketplace in the evenings for shopping and several dining options. The furnishings were a bit dated in style, but not too worn. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, kitchen gadgets and cookware. The pool areas were attractive and quiet. There are grills, laundry facilities and other conveniences on site. The beach is a 10-minute walk, but it is not for swimming. This is not a luxury facility or for those who want to be right on a swimming beach. But if you are looking for a quality, affordable accommodation on Kauai, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the BW Plantation Hale.
Great place. Very comfortable. The beds are really comfortable. Soft sheets! The housekeeping staff are all very friendly. The pools are not crowded. The only complaint is the road is right near and can be a bit noisy. Overall not bad though. The beach is close (not a swim beach) There is one close by though and it is great snorkeling There are lots of Happy Hour specials around in the various hotels close by and in the Coconut Marketplace. Do try the fluffy bananna pancakes at Eggberts! If you are looking for a resort atmosphere you might be dissapointed as this is more a laid back type of hotel. I would go back! Watch out for the endangered Red Rooster. HA!
Great Family Accomodations
Stayed for 6 nights as part of a time share presentation accross the way. Was nice sized unit for the family of four. Too much to do on the island to really stay at the property for any length of time.
Bathroom could be a lot cleaner. Laundry facilities came in handy. They were installing some sort of TV system when we were there. The airconditioning is a bit hard to regulate as it is only one unit for each suite.
Overall the family enjoyed having a kitchen in the morning and it was close to Hanalei which is where we spent most of our time.
Would recommend to other families and stay there again.
We enjoyed our stay for one week at Plantation Hale in Kauai. The grounds are very clean and well kept. Our condo unit was ground floor of two story building and pool was just right out our front door. Property is very clean and staff very friendly. Ocean is a very short walk and a nice beach. We would stay here again if we ever vacationed in Kauai again. Great
We stayed at the Plantation Hale in early December 2003. Overall the room was a great value - definitely clean, spacious, and a good amount of kitchen space. The staff was quite helpful as was the activities concierge. We used the latter to get a discount on a helicopter trip by attending a timeshare presentation (an hour's worth of presentation for $160 off was worth it for us). The property is not terribly upscale, and has a little wear and tear. The decorations were a little dated.
Loved the Planataion Hale
This is a GREAT value. Clean spacious suites, good activities desk, nice gardens. Full kitchen and laundry facilities really help save money. The pools are not too crowded- all in all its a quiet, homelike, restful ,close- to- everything place.
