Late Arrival at the Resort
JOYCE K.
Jun 01 2014
We arrived at Poipu Kai about 10PM Hawaiian time to find the office closed. We found a sign on the door with instructions to pick up the phone setting on a lockbox. A woman on the phone gave us a combination to the lockbox and inside we found a flashlight, keys and instructions to our unit. We were expecting two beds, but got one bed and a pull-out couch. Maids do not make-up a couch and never make any beds at all. Otherwise. the condo was furnished nicely and the kitchen well equipped, but could have used a ceiling fan in the dining area. Outside carpeted stairway smelled very moldy. The lower part of the stairs/walkway from the 2nd floor was very slippery when wet (every day). No elevator, making it difficult to lug suitcases up to the 2nd floor.

The location of the unit was fantastic, just a couple of minutes walk to the awesome Poipu beach and Kalapaki Joe's restaurant. As advertised, it is not an air conditioned property, though we were fortunate to have a mobile AC unit in the bedroom which was FANTASTIC! I don't know how we would have slept without it. The unit itself (423) was lovely, very roomy and good kitchen and laundry equipment. It was on the third floor and no lift which didn't worry us but if you have issues with getting your bags up stairs you may want to request a ground floor unit. The pools were clean, we had access to two of them and they were both great. The reception staff were ungracious and the only downer of the whole experience. We had booked to stay 6 nights with a room service after 3 nights. The service didn't happen and when I followed up they said we had to pay if we wanted it done. The next morning I showed them our booking printouts showing that it was included and after photocopying it we were added to the schedule - but they were ungracious about their error. EVERYTHING else about the stay was fantastic.

This was in a good location, walkable to Poipu beach, Brennecke’s, and Kalapaki Joe’s. However, there was only one small AC in the place which made the hot humid nights less than bearable. We also came home one evening to find a leak in the ice maker line, which started to flood the living room. The security guard helped us shut it off, but the property manager was no help, and we had to mop up the mess ourselves, with beach/shower towels. There’s no emergency plan, as the property owner and management do not provide after hour contact information; beware!

No Air Conditioning

We booked our unit at the Manualoah condominiums. The BIGGEST issue is no air conditioning at all, not even window units in the bedrooms. The staff provided additional fans, but that wasn't enough to keep up with the heat at night, and our bedroom was on the top floor. Our bedroom had two sets of bathroom doors, one stuck open and the other stuck closed. The back door to the balcony wouldn't close without tremendous effort. The parking is limited at Manualoha; many spaces are reserved for residents/owners, which makes sense, but it was a challenge to find a place to park just to unload upon arrival. Since this is a condo, there is a dishwasher in the kitchen, and washer and dryer on the main floor, which is a huge help when taking a beach vacation, with lots of wet and sandy clothes! The location is fine; near town, near a big Safeway and restaurants, and nice beaches. I understand it's a huge expense to air condition all the units, but small window units in the bedrooms might be a big help

Not an AC property

I stayed here the week of August 18-24. We normally stay at the Marriott in Kauai but because we had a friend joining us we decided to get a 2 bedroom condo. When we first arrived we were surprised by the $208 cleaning fee. But whatever it’s fine. When we got to the room it was really hot, only the bedrooms had AC but the rest of the unit was hot. I called the front desk to see if they can move us to another unit with Central AC, the lady said “ we are not an AC property so the fact that you have AC in the bedrooms you are lucky “ she said she would look into changing our room then call me the next day. Never heard from her. We didn’t spend much time there so I just let it go. What really upset me was that both of our showers were absolutely filthy. There was long hair every where, and none of us have long hair so it was not ours. The tubs look liked they were not clean at all. So what was that $208 cleaning fee for? I would have complained when I was there but I didn’t want to waste my vacation arguing with the staff. I would just never stay here again. On the bright side I did love the location. I recommend if you stay here tell the front desk people what you expect in your room.

Not the Grand Hyatt, But Not Terrible

There is another post from a while back, titled "Not the Aston at Maui (or something similar)." Have to say that was a pretty accurate review. For starters, there is no AC in the resort, just ceiling fans. I knew this when I booked, as 10 years ago, the weather was not brutal the last time we were on Kauai. I figured it would be no big deal. This year, due to Hector's close pass to the island, and the approach by Lane (we made it out in time), it was very humid, so the fans did not help much. But, caveat emptor, as they saying goes.That was all on me, as the resort makes this clear before you book. So other than a hot room, the only negative I have is the housekeeping (or lack thereof). You pay $150 for the week (5 days in our case), but there is not daily housekeeping. Housekeeping came mid week (Tuesday, as my wife requested more towels...otherwise it would have been Wednesday, and we were checking out Thursday). They emptied the trash (we separated our recyclables from the regular trash on our own), and made the bed. other than that, not much was done for that $150. I felt the $20 per day charge at the Aston at Whaler Village was a better deal, both in terms of cost and service (this is where we stayed the previous 4 days). Now that the negatives are out of the way, I will say we had a spacious unit. Working kitchen, living room, dining room, and bedroom (we had a 1 bedroom unit). View was of the condo unit, as the resort is not located on the beach (at least, not the Kahala section), but is literally a 4 to 5 minute walk to Poipu beach. There were 2 pools, one with a hot tub. Shipwreck Beach is about a 4 minute drive away, Spouting Horn and Allerton Gardens about a 8-10 minute drive, and there are a couple of shopping centers about a 5 minute drive away. There is a clothes washer and dryer in the units for those inclined to do laundry. It's really not a bad resort, rooms a bit dated, but if you are looking for the "Wow factor," you won't find it here.
