Narrowing down stay in Poipu area - help appreciated!

Narrowing down stay in Poipu area - help appreciated!

Hi, my husband and I will be going to Kauai for the first time in 3 weeks!

We are still trying to narrow down where we will be staying.

Options are :

#1 - Sheraton - I am attending a conference there.

#2 - https:/…amenities (Poipu Sands)

#3 - https:/… (Kuhio Shores)

#4 - https:/… (Kiahuna Plantation)

#5 - Koa Kea Hotel

I know these are varied in price -- The Sheraton would be completely covered by my work. Others would cost varied amounts more. We have seen mixed reviews on Sheraton, and know we may not get an ocean view room there (which I would like).

At least one of the above doesn't have a pool. Are you able to go to another hotel/resort and use the pool for a day?

Thanks for any advice!

I think the attachment for the condo at Poipu Sands is the same as Kuhio Shores so I couldn't tell which unit it is but we have stayed at Poipu Sands quite a few times and it's pretty much become our go-to. We have stayed at Kuhio Shores and while many of the units were beautiful it is a very busy area and we didn't think we would but really missed having a pool. Sheraton is ok - we've gone to several conferences in Kauai and extended after they were over and we could hardly wait to leave the hotel venue.....like to separate work from fun.

There is a Poipu athletic club with an outdoor pool and bar that you can get a membership to for the period you are there - reasonable. Wouldn't be far from any of your options.

Stay at the Sheraton or Poipu Kapili.

I love Kuhio Shores, the location right on the water cannot be beat! But for our last trip, hubby left reserving the accommodations too late, and we couldn't get a unit there. So he had to expand his horizons and he found this unit at Poipu Kapili which was fantastic. The folks at the property management company were amazing--we had a welcome package, juice in the fridge, and Hawaiian music playing when we walked in to the unit.

Poipu Kapili would be at the top of my list also. Parrish also has a number of listings there.
