Sun, sand, sea and swaying palms on Hawaii’s world-famous Garden Island, Kauai. Does it get any better? Not really, which is a large part of why The Point at Poipu, a Diamond Resorts & Hotelsproperty, is also a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. That, and the convenient poolside restaurant, Honu Cove Bar & Grill, whose meals offer an alternative to the barbecues you can host around the gas grills. And the daily events and, of course, accommodations – comfortable, thoughtfully appointed one- or two-bedroom retreats, with a kitchen and a balcony, patio or terrace apiece.
Make a splash in the outdoor pool, or make your way down to Shipwreck Beach, which the property overlooks, and frolic among the foaming Pacific waves. Bathe in the adults-only Jacuzzi, or inhale the fragrances of the blooming flowers that dot the grounds. And if you need a change of sunny, sandy scenery, then relocate to another part of this pristine isle: In addition to featuring golf greens, a grotto, a canyon, enchanting waterfalls and verdant state parks, it boasts a total of 50 miles of pristine shoreline.

It doesn’t get much more beautiful than Kauai, known as the Garden Island. When you’re not swimming in The Point at Poipu’s pool, soaking in its hot tub or making your way down to Shipwreck Beach, see some of the most striking foliage at several state parks, such as the 17-mile paradise along the Na Pali Coast. Tour the Fern Grotto, see the Wailua Falls, or hike the Kalalau Trail. You can also take on-site hula lessons or crafting classes, or pick from 10 golf courses and nearly 50 miles of other white sands on the island.
How to Get There
We loved this property. Zada at the bar was one of our favorite people at the resort. Jamie, the manager took care of my issue and was so nice about it - she could have acted rude and she didn't. She went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my stay. The rooms are nice and have lots of space. The concierge was phenomenal with tips and information. We will definitely be going back here when we visit Kauai again.
Located midway between Shipwreck and Brennecke beaches, this location is excellent. It offers A/C, which is a nice bonus. We rented a two bedroom, two bath unit, which has a well appointed kitchen and small washer/dryer, too. We paid for a garden view, but got partial ocean view. It was lovely on the lanai every morning and evening. The flooring, bedding, bathrooms, and kitchen were a little dated, but well maintained. My only issue was the schedule for housekeeping. On a nine day trip, I would expect to have a visit to refresh towels, soap, and shampoo by day three. At the end of the day I had to call, and I was told to wash my own towels. They brought soap and shampoo. I got full housekeeping the next day, and then they didn't come back until day 8, right before I was checking out, when I no longer needed anything. My advice on this point: just ask the schedule and be sure it works for your trip, but don't let this minor issue prevent you from staying at The Point. All other factors outweigh this minor issue.
No game room on huge property. Should have air hockey, pool table and video games for the kids. Only had ping pong table. pool is only 4 ft. deep and a long walk from outer buildings and u have to go thru 2 other buildings to get there. The $25 amenities charge per day is just extortion to its timeshare customers who trade into resort. I woulld never return
The views are spectacular, the rooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Zada and Michael at the pool bar make everyone feel at home! The entire property is impeccably maintained and has lots of amenities for everyone plus there are three beaches easily accessible from the property.
This is a fantastic resort - the units are beautiful and comfortable. The views are amazing, no matter where you are situated in the resort. It is close to pretty much everything on the island, except the North Shore. The sea turtles love Turtle Cove, just steps away from the resort! We'd definitely stay there again.
