Kauai visit

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Hawaii and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The grounds at the Pono Kai Resort were excellently maintained and beautiful. There were many amenities available and the lobby staff was friendly and helpful. However, the activities coordinator was often very busy and several times we gave up waiting and left to get information elsewhere. We found many eating establishments and stores within walking distance of of our room. It was nice having the paved path near our room and we enjoyed walking and biking on the path. Having the beach close also was a nice feature. The room was nice, however it did have a musty smell, the dishwasher had rust on the bottom panel. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Nice condo with an ocean front-ish view

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed at this condo for 8 nights and had a lovely time in Kaua'i over all. I found it helpful when another reviewer listed the pros and cons, so I'll do the same.

Pros:

-Great location on the island and in Kapa'a

-Grills outside meant grilling local beef for dinner as we watched the sun go down

-Clean room with plenty of space for two

-Walking distance from grocery stores, restaurants (Lemon Grass Grill and Shrimp Station were great!), bike and kayak rentals and plenty of beaches

Cons:

-A front desk staff that was unfriendly and unhelpful at times

-The internet access is free only by the pool and in the front lobby

-The online listing said that the room was on the second floor, which we were looking forward to so that we could leave our glass door open without worrying about someone walking in, but it is on the first floor

-The listing also says ocean front, which it technically is, but there are other units that are actually ocean front while this one sits back further from the actual beach, which was no big deal to us, still beautiful, just slightly misleading

Overall, it was a nice place that served as a good base point. We were a little put off by the listing being a little different than the actual room and by the unfriendly front desk staff. It is in a great location for checking out a lot of the island and Kapa'a itself.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate your feedback on the condo. I had not realized that it was showing as a 2nd floor unit so I was able to change that in the listing, that was just a typo. I do have a few condos that are no different floors so I did not mean to put anything there. I have never heard a complaint about the resort staff before so I can also bring this to the resort general managers attention for the future. Thank you and I am glad you had a great time.

Great location, lots of activities, slightly non-responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the property with my family for 4 days and really enjoyed.

Pros

- Marvelous 4 mile running track that starts in the resort's backyard and runs along the beach.

- The resort has tons of games (tennis, croquet, shuffle board, board games, etc) that can be checked out at the lobby.

- Resort is right next to tons of restaurants (McD, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut - very handy with kids + fine dining as well).

- Close by grocery outlets and gas stations

- Shave Ice and Bike Rentals next door.

- Boss Frog for snorkel rentals is close by too.

- About 8 miles from the airport

Cons

- Free Internet is only in lobby and pool, you've to pay in the room.

- Two lane highway that connects to the airport. If construction is going on then you are stuck on it.

- I left multiple emails and voice mails for the owner before he started responding on how to check-in to the property. This was not a pleasant experience. I almost filed a complaint with VRBO.com ;-)

Owner's Response: I am not sure why this guest did not receive my email responses to their request about the process to pick up keys. I take great pride in responding, usually within minutes, but no later that 6 hours ever. I keep records of all correspondence and located my communications with this guest, every correspondence was returned within an hour of receiving emails. I am glad they had a great time within the condo and am unclear as to why there was any communication issue with this. As mentioned above, I take great pride in timely responses. Mahalo

Property is centrally located on the garden Island of Kauai. It is about equal distance to both the Princeville and Poipu areas. It is walking distance to downtown kapaa where you have many nice restaurants and shops. The resort sits right on the ocean and has many amenities on site such as Tennis courts, mini golf, croquet, shuffleboard, board games, basketball, fitness center, and much more... the resort also has a 4 mile walking trail right in front of the property which goes along the ocean. Large units, great location, and great value...
