"Great condo with amazing ocean views"
We love Poipu Shores This was our 4th time here. Can't beat the view from the lanai.Every day we were treated to sea turtles, pods of spinner dolphins and humpback whales putting on acrobatic shows - all from the comfort of our 2nd story balcony. Condo is very well furnished. We had beach chairs, beach mats and a boogie board, as well as beach bags […] and cooler bags for snacks. They all came in quite handy since this condo is a short and pleasant walk to a lovely string of beaches. Condo was very, very quiet...all except for the wonderful sound of crashing waves that lulled us to sleep every night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellently remodeled condos, beautiful views"
Our condo was beautiful! We were the first to stay in it after the renovations, and it is gorgeous- beautiful tile, brand new appliances, comfortable beds. The view is incredible from the deck, and the master bedroom has an entire wall of windows to watch the sunrise as you're waking up. Over all it was wonderful! Very comfortable with 2 bedrooms, 2 […] baths, loving room dining room and a full kitchen. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it's just a short walk to Poipu Beach. Highly Recommended!

We had a wonderful time on the island of Kauai. We stayed in a condo to help keep the cost down on our trip.We had a two bedroom condo overlooking the ocean. However, the condo was extremely hot due to the sun coming in the rooms. It would be better if this condo had air conditioning. Also, we had the waves hitting the rocks all night so it was difficult […] to get a sound sleep. If they had air conditioning maybe it would have been better. It would have made the facility more pleasant since we didn't go out much at night. Also, there is not much of a maid service. We were there a week and the maid only brought towels once we never saw her again. We had to go to the office to get clean towels twice during our stay. The women in the office was, however, very helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Castle Poipu Shores , a Condominium Resort Aloha and mahalo for taking the time to write a review. We apologize for your discomfort during your stay but as you mentioned we rely on ceiling fans and not air conditioning as do the majority of condominiums on the island. As an ocean front resort the sound of the ocean is ever present and not something we can control but most people find it appealing. Our housekeeping services are based on length of stay so I am unable to verify your noted lack of service. I hope what you experienced does not stop you from returning to our property or Kauai in the future. Mahalo again.
Beautiful place, right on the water, to look at. nice beach about 10 min.. walk décor ok. Wi-Fi never workedGenuine Expedia guest review

We are working with our vendor to correct the issues and have worked out a resolution. We sincerely hope you choose to return to Kauai and select Poipu shores as your oceanfront choice.
Our group of six stayed at this property for one night prior to heading to Princeville the next day. I chose this condo due to its proximity to The Beach House restaurant. This unit had two bedrooms and two full baths. One bedroom was an ensuite and the other had two twin beds plus two cots. The unit was spacious and held us quite comfortably. Sleeping […] was a little tight for the two on the cots but we were only there for the one night. This would have been a little too tight for 6 people for our entire 10-day vacation but would've been fine for 2-3 days. The unit itself was clean, nicely appointed and beautifully situated right on the oceanfront. There was no beach - just rocks - but it was beautiful views and the sound of the ocean crashing right outside one's door! There were restaurants and party stores within walking distance. The pool was very nice and again, the view was spectacular. The grounds were very nicely landscaped and maintained. I have been to Kauai twice now and have spent my time in Princeville but were I to return, I would definitely staying on the south shore. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Our 2nd stay at Poipu Shores"
Two years ago we had a great 2-bedroom condo in the A building 3rd floor above the pool. Loved it! This year we had a townhouse in the C building which was even better. Awesome patio about 10 feet from the ocean, with an upstairs lanai overlooking the water & rocks. Great place to watch the honu basking in the water close to the rocks. Can't get any […] closer to the ocean than this. About 2 minute walk to Brennecke's beach. Very short distance to all the wonderful Poipu restaurants and beaches.

"Best location in Kauai."
The unit we stayed in was a little dated, and could really use new throw rugs (they were a little disgusting). But the view and friendliness of the staff (Georgia & housekeeping) more than made up for it. This was the second time we've stayed @ Poipu Shores and with any luck will be back soon!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Castle Poipu Shores , a Condominium Resort Mahalo for your comments. Fortunately man of our units have recently gone through a renovation which refreshes the ocean front feel of our guests stay. We look forward to your next visit.
"Great views, close to beach."
Views are spectacular, stayed for marriage and honeymoon. Bed awful, in desperate need of replacement, and I saw from a journal on the property the bed has been a sore spot for years now!!! Replace the beds and it goes to 5 stars. Also, not up to my standards of cleanliness. Cupboards dingy with old drippings on them, floors clearly not washed for a […] long time.

"Amazing ocean vistas! Watch sea turtles surfing."
We stayed in 205A. The unit had some peeling paint & older decor but was quite comfortable. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was adequately stocked with cooking utensils. Staff was friendly & accommodating. The view however could not have been more spectacular. It was totally hypnotic watching the waves crash on the rocky coast. Every morning while we […] had breakfast on the lanai, we could see sea turtles in the surf. I do recommend ear plugs for sleeping as the waves make quite a booming sound against the rocks. We'd happily book here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Response by Castle Poipu Shores , a Condominium Resort Mahalo for taking the time to review your stay with us and we hope you choose us for your next visit on Kauai.
These are condominiums on the beach at Poipu. Volcanic rock shoreline at sunny Poipu. Poipu Beach 200 yards down the coast. Close to everything you want. The 4 condos A107,B107,C107 D107 might be too warm in hot summer because of South and West exposier. No A/C just fans. Balcony faces South where you can see 180 view of coastline. Crash of waves on […] rocks might be loud if that is not to your liking. We were there last week of August and kept windows open and enjoyed the sounds of the ocean. Two Bedroon two bath condo was clean with TV, Blue Ray, full Kitchen, stocked with beach amenities , books and videos. We would choose Poipu Shores again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fantastic place to stay with family"
Me and my family of four stayed at this hotel from 7/31/12 to 8/6/12. I had originally reserved a one bedroom. However, the hotel management took it upon them to upgrade it to two bedrooms. I was very pleasantly surprised. Our room was specious and clean, with an amazing view of the ocean. The kitchen was fully stacked with everything we needed to cook. […] The bathrooms and the living area could use some upgrading but hardly a deal breaker. The hotel is only a few minutes’ walk to Poipu beach, one of best family beaches on Kauai. There are also several very clean and pleasant BBQ areas within the resort that made grilling that much more fun. The pool was very nice too! Overall, we were all very pleased with our stay and highly recommend this place. Travelers tip: If you stay in this resort, take your time to shop for a week’s worth of food at Costco on your way from the airport. The views and the room are so nice that you would not want to eat out and will save a lot of money in the process. The daily breakfast on the balcony was our favorite… Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Cliffs overlooking the ocean"
Poipu Shores was incredible! Like the Terminator likes to say..."I'll be back." Our suite overlooked the ocean...at night we were lulled to sleep (and sometimes awakened) by the crashing of waves into the shore. My wife and I honestly felt that we could have stayed out on our lanai every day, watching the ocean, looking for Hawaiian monk seals and sea […] turtles, and listening to the ocean and still had a fabulous time. We did not, but we could have. Kauai is an outdoor paradise with some of the most incredible mountain trails, beaches and views in the world! We can't wait to plan our next trip, and will definitely stay at Poipu Shores again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location is everything"
Many of the features of our particular unit (204A) were dissatisfying, i.e., a bathroom so small my 11 year old son could barely fit in it, the refrig and toaster were very old and minimally functional, and the fold-out sofa bed was unreasonably uncomfortable. Overall, we were comfortable, but many items need replacing. Parking is understandably in […] demand, however, parking lines could be repainted. The staff was fantastic, warm and welcoming, the location was ideal. The unit was clean. The small shortcomings did not in any way hinder our vacation stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Turtle watching from the deck!"
We had a great time for a week at this resort celebrating our anniversary. The resort was well maintained and clean. Everything worked. Beautiful view! Wonderful location! Enjoyed the sound of the surf and watching turtles from our deck.Genuine Expedia guest review
オーシャンビューの部屋なので、ビーチへ出掛けなくても、部屋でのんびり気分良く休暇を過ごせました。スタッフの対応も良、です。 ただ、シャワーの温度が低いのがマイナスポイント。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
海辺に建つ絶景のコンドミニアムで、何よりロケーションが最高。テラスから覗きこめる磯辺にはウミガメが何匹も泳いでいるのが見えた。大変古い建物だがメンテナンスはよく、インテリアに趣向が凝らされていてラグジュアリー感がある。利用したのは３ベッドルーム２バスルームで、大型の洗濯機・乾燥機を備えており、キッチンの設備も充実。後付けと思われるディッシュウォッシャーが、ストーヴ（ガスレンジ）と干渉して全開しないのはご愛嬌・・。デッシュウォッシャー用の洗剤も備え付けられており便利。Genuine Expedia guest review
02/07/15 bikegem Bay Area, California
We stayed at Poipu Shores recently. STayed in both 405A and 101A. Would not recommend 101A, as the sun hits the little lanai early in the morning and makes it too hot to sit on. 405A was terrific, as the sun doesn't hit the lanai til much later (due to a dividing wall between it and the property to the east of it. 405A was furnished to the max, and had a wonderfully stocked kitchen. The dinnerware was so pretty. Lovely unit. 101A was much plainer, and lacked a garbage disposal, bedside tables on each side of the beds (only one bedside table per bedroom) and had a very funky remote for the television. We had to adjust volume/channels by getting up and doing it at the tv. I would not stay on the ground floor again. Convenient for getting to the pool, which is lovely, but you can't leave the windows open to let the trade winds in.
"Beautiful location , lovely staff."
01/06/15 Carol P Canberra, Australia
This was a wonderful location for our family of 5 . We wanted separate beds for our children ( adult and teens) and this provided it. The room was clean , renovated and spacious. The main bedroom had the spectacular view of the ocean !!!!! The balcony ( lani) also had the same view. The pool was lovely and yes there were turtles and whales ( in the distance) . The staff were very helpful. The beach was 10 mins walk , good for snorkelling with turtles . Worth the money . I hope to be back again .
"room with a linai"
11/15/14 dom1947 Huntington Beach, California
we stayed at 101 b .we shared a massive 25 by 25 deck jutting over the ocean.only two units cab use the deck.we had complete patio set with lounge chair and rocking chair .this is the way to go.since the deck juts out of the ocean we had a perfect few for the sunsets,in addition looking down you see the sea turtles .the water was cear and you can see the turtles swimming about.it was quite the enjoyable site.after watching these guys for the last 7 days i am amazed how they never try to make land or how the are constantly thrown about by the waves.i am now a big sea turtle fan.now a review of the room.the room was clean and fully stocked with supplies.we had coffee maker ,sove microwave,washer and dryer etc.my wife complained that it was too much like home.by eating in a few meals youcan same some money.the beach is close by and i used some trials to walk to the hyatt resort.i was able to see some of the most incredible sunrises by using the walking trial and the sunset by walking out on my private deck.my only compliant was the door lock..if i tried i probably could pick the lock.for safety it should be a double bolted lock.i know you may think this to be minor but safety is important. in the back of my mind i always wondered about the room when we left.this was a perfect place except for theat one issue.if you stay at the shores you will also ;have a pool which many other places do not have so it is another plus .if you stay rent either 101 b or 102 b and you will have you own private deck.it is well worth the extra cost.
"Wonderful stay in 202B"
10/16/14 CarnationKila carnation
Stayed 7 nights in 202B. In my opinion, it was the best condo in this complex. Right on the ocean (Crashing waves are loud). Entrance is on same level as parking. It has a triple lanai which opens from both bedrooms and living room. Used the beautiful pool, lots, and the barbecue. The furnishings and kitchen were well done. They had plenty of the usual condo supplies you expect, TP, laundry soap, etc. there was also a beach umbrella, chairs and a couple boogie boards available. The location was perfect. Could walk to the beach for boogie boarding and body surfing. The turtles love to hang out in the water just off the lanai. Some residence saw dolphins and I bet in winter you might see whales. It took two nights for me to get used to how loud the crashing waves are, the the bed was really comfortable. Typical for Hawaii condo's, no air conditioning because you rely on the trade winds, but we stayed during and hot and windless time, suffice to say why I was in the pool a lot. But they do have the usual ceiling fans and they also provided two room fans. Perfect for 2-4 people but only one bathroom and it is small, but she shower was well done and roomy, just not much counter space. Yes, I recommend this condo and plan to go back. Tarek, the owner, is very helpful and responsive.
"Great Views and Nicely Upgraded but NO A/C (unit 306A)"
09/29/14 Jim S Tucson, Arizona
This unit like the others in this group is right on the water with the waves breaking so close that spray would occasionally hit the lanai. The unit had been upgraded and was clean and well stocked. We were two couples and drew the "second" bedroom. Kauai was having a heat wave and this room was unbearable even with the two portable fans in the room. The location with a steep hill right behind blocked and cool breeze coming from the land. I feel that any unit in this complex MUST be equipped with an A/C unit even if it is not needed most of the time. We had a couple of small issues which were addressed promply by the management organization. The parking situation is not great but can be dealt with.
"Beautiful View an close to beaches"
09/09/14 Jamie B Edmonton, Canada
Stayed in unit 201B. 2 bedroom. Nicely updated. Small, but well equipped and clean. View right over the ocean with the waves crashing all day long. Nice that it has beach chairs, towels and cooler. Short walk to Poipu beach which was amazing! Unit has no A/C which made it a bit warm at night despite the breeze. The property is dated but well kept. We were very happy here.
09/02/14 Eve S San Diego, California, United States
We love Princeville but decided to stay in Poipu for this trip. The owner of the unit we rented in Princeville recommend we stay in his unit at Poipu Shores on our next visit so we decided to give it a try. We actually stayed 3 nights in 201B and 7 nights in 202B. We definitely liked 202B best. The bedrooms both have access to the lanai as does the living room. I come to Hawaii to spend time outdoors so I pretty much camped out here. You will see turtles everyday and the most beautiful view you can imagine. Waves crashing in spectacular fashion and we even got to see a double rainbow. This unit has 2 bedrooms but only one very small bathroom. We were just 2 people so it worked for us. Very functional kitchen and the unit had beach chairs, snorkel equipment, mats etc. that were useful since the beach is just around the corner. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that there is no AC. We were there in August and everyday was around 90 and so stinking humid I couldn't stand it. Thankfully it cooled down in the evenings. There are ceiling fans but all they do is push around the humid air. Koloa town is a short drive and you have a great grocery store, shops and eateries.
"If location is primary this is place, otherwise average"
08/12/14 Eileen V Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The view is amazing, and essentially the highlight of the property. The location is on a cliff right over the crashing waves which is majestic. Watching the sea turtles was wonderful. The location is not by the swimming beach, but it is an easy walk to it. It is a good location if you want to stay in Poipu. Our unit was average at best. The unit was badly in need of renovation. It was old and the furnishings were old as well. The units appear larger in the photos than they actually are. The units are not air conditioned and there were no "trade winds" when we were there, so it was warm. Also, because of the warmth, the windows need to remain open to keep air circulating, which means it can be loud, and causes issues with geckos and bugs in the unit. Parking is on site and free, but very, very tight. This resort is surrounded by other properties on all sides, which are very close in some cases depending on the unit. The photos make the location seem more private than it actually is. Overall, the property seemed old and in need of updating and maintenance.
"Best complex of all. Amazing!!!!"
05/08/14 Barbara36 Everett, WA
This complex is so close to Poipu Beach. The pool is perched alongside the ocean and is truly said to be the best in all of Hawaii and I do not doubt it, you stand on the deck of the pool and watch sea turtles below. The waves splashing on the lava all day and night is mesmerizing. We have spent 9 different vacations in Poipu and this truly surpasses them all. I will never go anywhere else. The location, the pool, the complex, there is no where better to stay. I would give it 20 stars if I could. The building is concrete block type so you do not hear anyone next to you or above you. Huge plus. The grounds are well kept, nothing spectacular. There is not a better sunset view anywhere. We began our trip finding restaurants with great sunset views and quickly learned that the best view of all is right on our lanai. The only negative is that the parking lot is small and tight, but while in paradise, that is a small price to pay. We will be back. units we have stayed in are 101A and 102A . i highly recommend both. close to the quiet pool, easy access and superb sunset views.
05/03/14 judiChicago chicago
We have stayed here several times and love what it is: right on the rocky shore, sitting on our lanai listening to the crashing waves and watching the view with coffee in the morning, with a drink at sunset and lulled to sleep at night after a full day of beach, hiking or exploring. Condo itself lovely. Complex could use some work. But location, location is it. Walking to Poipu Beach and up towards the Hyatt the best as is the pool jutting out over the water and watching the turtles bob around.
