    Very disappointed, not the Hawaii experience that we've expected

    We've stayed for a couple of days at Castle Kiahuna Plantation & Beach Bungalows. The disappointment was huge. 1. They've put us in a room which is a part of a big building (not bungalows) extremely far from the beach although they market it as "beach bungalows". It's 8-10 minutes walk just to get there. The hotel landscape near the beach is beautiful, but it feels like going to a different hotel. Between us and the beach there was a different hotel and its very big parking lot. 2. The room was quite dirty, old, barely any light. I've added a few pictures that show dirty sheets, rusty equipment, dusty clock next to the bed, and generally speaking the unit felt worn out, outdated, and barely maintained. 3. Hidden charges and cost - In extremely small letters, they've also added a quite expansive cleanup fee of about $200 (depending on room size) and a daily $25 fee. We missed it in the tiny letters when we booked, and for a relatively short stay, it made the price per night more than it would have been compared to other similar hotels nearby that we've considered originally. Generally speaking, the cost per night was expansive. The cleanup fee is extremely disappointing given that the room was quite dirty. To summarize, this place is definitely not close to be worth the price in our opinion. You will have a much better Hawaii experience at other places. We stayed around the area in the past at another hotel not far away at a much lower cost and for much better facilities. This hotel is the only disappointing part of our wonderful trip in Hawaii.

    Beautiful site, disappointing unit

    Kiahuna is lovely- a really nice property with picturesque (tho not easily accessible because of shoreline erosion) beach, beautiful grounds and charming buildings. BUT units are individually owned and must be highly variable because we rented a top price ocean front unit that was disappointing in EVERY way except its beachfront location. The unit was old and run down, with aging and chipped paint, rusty light figures, garage sale art on the wall. WORST was the furniture-- all old, nothing comfortable. THE WORST bed I have slept on in in my adult life. The bathroom is old and dingy, the amenities small and cheap, the bedding threadbare the kitchen is adequately supplied but marginal. SMALL TV- the size of a large computer screen. It is hard to imagine this unit being acceptable without major revision but CERTAINLY not at the price paid We have been to Poipu annually for over 10 years, and this is by far THE WORST place we have stayed. There are many other nicer and better value places to stay. DONT risk your vacation here !!!!

    A huge disappointment

    We rented this accommodation because the reviews looked decent and the pictures looked very nice. When we arrived our room floors had not been mopped there was sand, food crumbs and dirt. The couch had crumbs all over it that I had to dust off before putting my two month old baby down (with a blanket between because it didn’t look overly clean even without the crumbs). We did not realize the place also did not have air conditioning which is not ideal for mid day naps with a newborn. We called the front desk right away to complain about the cleanliness and we requested to leave to different accommodations. They said we could leave but would be charged the entire first night, which was way to high in my opinion and it was not in our budget to double it for the night so had to stay. They said we could leave the next day and be refunded for the other nights so we happily did and we were not even offered a discount for the gross room... We didn’t argue it but come on... Further, the “ocean view” I upgraded to was more of another condo in front of us view. Apparently we had to upgrade to the “full ocean view” even though our upgrade was $100 and how the heck would anyone know that? There are also astronomical cleaning fees per day that they tack on. We were charged $100 cleaning fee when we arrived, should that not be included in the price quote??? The rooms are also very outdated. All in all I can not recommend staying here. We got a gorgeous place with a small kitchen, air conditioning and great customer service in a beautiful resort 5 minutes up the street! The people who are rating this place high may not have every stayed anywhere else, I’m honestly not sure. Below is a picture of my clean foot after walking on their floors when we first arrived. Do yourself a favour and book somewhere else.
