We spent 3 weeks at Poipu Shores 102B and loved every minute! The view from the lanai is absolutely the best view we’ve had on Kauai in the 6 times we’ve been here. You may just decide to stay in the whole time you’re here just because the patio/lanai offers the best views – and the condo itself is so...

Sleep to the sound of the crashing waves! This view is stunning. The rooms are comfortable. We shared a two bedroom two bath that was well appointed. Ask for flour fans since there is no AC, it helped enormously. Be sure to check out the sea turtles, they are very enchanting. Nice balcony, we had wonderful breakfasts with the crashing...

Complex was built in the early 70's and rebuilt twice in 1982 and 1992, due to hurricanes. Each apartment faces the shoreline and has a private lanai. There is a swimming pool as well as a common area and two gas bbq for free use. The spacy apartments offer all amenites including fans for cooling purposes. Very friendly and helpfull...

The view from the lanai can't be beat. Waves crashing against the shoreline. We saw sea turtles every day. The main bedroom was ideal. I would have given 5 stars if it weren't for the back bedroom. It faces the outdoor hallway which can be noisy. There were some problems with the screen lanai door and the screen on the...

Quality of the room is really a 4/5 stars but the view kills it so it's gotta be a 5 star. Ac in bedroom is great but if it ever shut down in July watch out. It didn't and we had great stay. The view might be best on island. You pay for it as the place is a bit...

#102A - Location is amazing. Pool right on the ocean was amazing. Our unit was in good condition. Unit and grounds need a bit of loving care, but who cares when you can fall out of bed and practically into the ocean or pool. Turtles were everywhere!!!

We just returned from a one week stay in the penthouse at Poipu Shores (406A). Our family of four (2 teens) LOVED the accommodations. The views from the condo are absolutely spectacular. We loved watching the waves crash against the rocky shoreline. As we watched from the lanai, we saw turtles frolicking in the waves below every day of our...

This is my 2ND stay in 5 years (5th stay overall). This time we had unit 301A - an end unit on the east side of the building. Convenient to stairwell, pool, and parking. Unit was very nicely appointed and comfortable with the exception that bathroom vent fans don't seem to function - we will inform management on the way...

Do not rent this unit until the owners or Castle Resorts & Hotels completely renovate it. This unit has a number of issues, to name a few -stove dirty & rusty, can't open dish washer door completely without opening the oven (not enough clearance), a hole in a bedroom wall, the refrigerator door handle on the wrong side, an electrical...

We picked this resort due to the location next to the water. The view from our room was unbelievable. We could see turtles from our lanai everyday. It was a short walk to the beach. Poipu beach was great for families with the kiddie beach area. We found ourselves just soaking in the calm waters there. We also did some...
