This place exceded our expectations.
The resort is stunning with a vast reception area overlooking centre court acreage and fab ocean vista. The condo was appointed beautifully, was spotlessly clean, and offered shared space and privacy enough for the five of us. In-suite laundry was extremely convenient, the kitchen was a dream to work in, and with Safeway and ABC across the street, we could not have been situated more advantageously. (BTW one of the ladies at ABC has a daughter who dances hula and sells GORGEOUS fresh leis for $5 apiece - AND they will drop it off them off at ABC for you!!!!) The beach gear that can be found in the closet in the second bedroom was really handy as we spent a good deal of our time checking out beaches from one end of the island to the other. I should mention that the beds were very comfortable, and the lanais off of the bedrooms are just so lovely to sit and enjoy a coffee of beverage on in morning and evening hours.
I had the good fortune to spend 2 weeks in the Grand Hyatt on Poipu a year before. The Grand Hyatt has been identified as one of the top 500 hotels in the world. I would tell you that I enjoyed the condo and all of its amenities much more than I enjoyed the Grand Hyatt, and I LOVED the Grand Hyatt!
We took in a lot of activities while on Kauai. Horseback riding at CJM, Scuba with Fathom Five, Whale Watching, Smith Family Luau (food fab - show, a little au fromage but still fun), and we lived by the Ultimate Guide to Kauai's beach and hiking guides. We hand fed tropical fish everywhere we snorkeled, (tip - little fish attract BIG fish! - another tip - don't use spray sunscreen on the beach as the wind will always be stirring and you can't get the coverage you need)!
I have recommended this condo to all family and friends, and any of my clients who have any interest in a visit to Hawaii will most definitely hear about it!
Aloha and MAHOLO
