Plantation Resort #111
Clean and Spacious but not as advertised. NOT A 5 STAR! A/C only in main room, you have to leave all interior doors open to stay cool. Corner unit with 3 busy roads on each side. Owners have everything covered, sofa, chairs, dining room upholstered chairs topped with mismatch cushions that were faded an a tablecloth that matches nothing. Bedspreads were old, faded, and mismatched. Towels and washcloths were dingy and stained, the morning after arriving I washed them in HOT water to try to sanitize them...I washed my face with paper towels they were so bad. Every edge of carpet was covered with cheap carpet runners that curled at the edges and corners, I can not tell you how many times we tripped over those rugs or the plastic runner in the closet. We only made coffee there and used the refrigerator for drinks. One vacationer was charged $500 for the only TV in the condo that did not work the week after they left....Unless a football was thrown through the screen or it was laying on the floor, who can determine what happen
Absolutely loved it!
I feel I should open by saying that if you're looking for a luxury, pampered experience, that is not this. I found Kiahuna Plantation Resort to be incredibly lovely and relaxing and beautiful, but it's more a condo-style experience with a full kitchen and living area. The staff was lovely and checked me in even though I'd arrived early (I had my time zone wrong!), and while I was there, three different concierges had recommendations for me that were incredibly helpful. Best piece of advice: get poke at the Koloa Fish Market! Also, as others have noted, there aren't glass windows in the units: there are screens with plantation shutters to cover them for privacy. The shutters worked fine for me, and since there also is no A/C, you're going to want to leave them open at night for the cross-breeze, which I loved. I used one of the provided floor fans, and the white noise helped block out any neighbor noises (and there weren't many). I think the only actual downside for me was the cost of housekeeping. I didn't mind not having ongoing housekeeping since I like the condo-style feeling, but the cost was high. The place was spotless and they do an amazing job, but it still was a pretty big additional hit. However, most importantly, I loved it there. The grounds are rolling and green and gorgeous, the grassy area above the beach is beautiful to relax on, and it's the sort of place where families are outside playing with the kids and groups of friends and couples are BBQing while you walk barefoot back to your condo. Also, at many places on the island, the water isn't safe to go in because of dangerous undertow or sharp rocks, but in the Kiahuna's private little mini-cove, the water was fine and safe and lovely to go in. (There are some sections of rock, but if you're going to Kauai, you probably want to have water socks or something similar handy to go into the water, anyway.) I found the whole area to be quiet, peaceful and the beautiful grounds were immaculately maintained, and my room/condo was comfortable and well-kept. I am super-happy that I sprung for the ocean view. Sliding open the shutters in front of the balcony in the morning and looking out over the perfect green lawns and the blue ocean is exactly what I wanted. Sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Beautiful Location Very poor Customer Service No Empathy and very inflexible.
We were all excited about our trip and arrived to find the room not as was described to us. We were told we would have a 2 bedroom condo and the main areas such as kitchen ect would be in the bottom floor; we went to great lengths to talk through that very important fact and when we arrived it was not like that at all. We were traveling with two mature people who have trouble walking up and down stairs and have balance issues and our room had steep stairs to the main living area that were very difficult for them to navigate every time. When we talked to hotel management (Roy) to see if we could get our money back under the circumstances or if we could switch to different accommodations we were told that there’s no way we were misled and he does not like to play the he said she said game, and all there two bedroom rooms have the main area on the second floor and from a business standpoint (they would not be able to fill the room during one of the busiest months in Hawaii) yea right there was nothing they could do. Remember basic customer or guest service “the customer is always right” They said they would try to look for two single story units and we never heard back from them. I have stayed in many places in the world and the total lack of empathy or willingness to work with us was startling. The hotel was dated with no housekeeping service even though we were staying longer than a week. Very very very slow response time to requests for towels ect.... then on our last day we asked for late checkout and were told that they could not accommodate.....come on Kiahuna try better. Also be aware they may hold a cleaning deposit upfront. We will not be staying here again next time definitely the Sheraton in Poipu for the south side.
Lovely grounds & setting, but no elevator!
The Kiahuna Plantation is conveniently located near other larger, newer resorts on Poipu road and is adjacent to a nice restaurant ( Plantation Gardens). The grounds are lovely and well maintained. In contrast, the guest units are housed in older wooden buildings not up to ADA code with no elevator. Our unit was comfortable with a well equipped kitchen, king bed, and nice deck on the with a partially obstructed ocean view from the 3rd floor. A major disappointment was the $200.00+ “cleaning fee” imposed per unit apparently regardless of length of stay. (It seemed excessive for our 2 nights and considering the bird droppings on our deck & railing when we checked in and the closets stuffed with furniture and other items to the extent that we couldn’t even open the door to one of the two closets.)
Our room was terrible. Not only did they book us in the most remote area of the property but our room was definitely not acceptable. When we arrived, they actually gave us a futon as the sleeper/sofa was broken. It was very uncomfortable even to sit on the sofa. We also noticed that the front door was broken (slats would not close) - this was repaired by maintenance. We noticed scorch marks on a kitchen outlet and found a broken circuit breaker, which was repaired. The worst issue was we did not have a functioning toilet and we waited four days for a new toilet to be installed. If the rest of our family was not staying next door, we would have had real problems. Management only offered us a key to another unit so we could utilize its bathroom. Maintenance told us the toilet was having problems for some time - they even had a "plunger" next to the toilet for our use. There were other issues such as a broken glass in cabinet, broken ironing board and our card keys not working when we first arrived. Also, be aware that housekeeping is not included. If you want the normal housekeeping that is standard in most resorts, the cost is an additional $80 per night. If you add the cleaning at checkout, our room at the back of the resort would have cost approximately $315.00 per night which is far more than the Sheraton (which are room was located behind and our "view" was of a Sheraton parking area. Also note that our room did not have air conditioning or heating - on one cooler morning, I turned on the oven to get some heat in the room. Also, do not depend on there being a safe in the room - our room had a "keyed" metal box that I could have opened in two minutes with the use of a screwdriver or knife.
