My husband and I just returned from our 2 week honeymoon in Kauai. We booked via Travelocity and selected Castle Poipu Shores based on the reviews, and really wanted the oceanfront location. We were not disappointed with the view, we saw turtles, dolphins and whales quite a few times right from the lanai. On this trip the good did not...

We just came back from week in Kauai staying at Poipu Shores Resort. I'll start with the good. Location is magnificent. We loved the view, the surf, sea turtles and whales. Pool is great and couldn't ask for better location. Our condo was on 4th floor and I have bad knees. Elevator was out for 4 days. They told us...

"Aloha...My husband and I vacationed at B202 Poipu Shores, and it was amazing!!! The place is beautifully decorated and clean. We had everything we needed, from spacious room, full kitchen, comfortable couch after long days sightseeing, full closet of beach chairs, snorkeling gear, coolers, beach towels and a never to forget AMAZING lanai. I took LOTS of pictures of the...

A great location -- only a short walk from a swim-able beach. Whales and turtles from the back patio! Room 102A was updated and very nice. We would definitely recommend and would stay there again!

I stayed in unit 107A which was promoted as a deluxe oceanfront This is a unit at the last corner end of the building C and is at the ground floor right at the ocean level. There is little or no privacy given the steady stream of foot traffic that will be a constant issue. This particular unit is SORELY...

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to give us your comments. I'm sorry your unit was not satisfactory. I wish you would have given us the opportunity to offer other rooms. Being only steps away from the ocean isn't for everyone and can be very dramatic. I hope you give us another opportunity to fulfil your needs in...

My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversay with a trip to Kauai and wanted to stay "right on the ocean". Our unit in Poipu Shores, 202B was perfect. Every night the sunsets were amazing, with one more beautiful than the next. We liked being on the ground floor. The unit had 2 bedrooms and one small bath, but sufficient...

Booked pckg deal thru pipeline after researching many places. Almost didn't choose as there is no jacuzzi. Glad we stayed here. Everything was easy breezy...which is what you hope for on vacation. Our first time to Kauai and the stay (room 102A) was perfect. Ground level & close to pool. Crashing waves, birds chirping, & occasionally hearing kids, neighbors conversations....

My husband, teenage son and I spent a week at Poipu Shores Condos. We booked it through Expedia, so there was no way of telling which unit we would be getting till we got there. We did get a good deal on an ocean front unit. We've also been to Maui and the Big Island and we've stayed in condos...

We booked an American Airlines package - air, hotel, and rental car for $1500 each, so $3000 total for two people for nine days.

We stayed in unit 103A for 6 nights and it was an amazing experience. The location is one that is hard to find in other places, with the unobstructed view of the ocean.
