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
Beds are horrible springs digging in your back 1 week of horrible sleep and back pain.also charged to our acct thing we didnt do. Check in/out person
Was on wrong acct.what a mess had to go back 3 times to get straight. Parking is absolutely horrible. I am not a time share member paid to stay there through expedia like 2800 for 1 week of hell
We are Diamond Resorts owners. Have been here 3 times. Currently here now.
Facility is well maintained with excellent and friendly staff.
Accommodations are excellent other than AC units are insufficient to cool entire 2 bedrooms and living area. If windows are open and AC not relied on, its heavenly.
Our refrigerator was not working adequately. Called maintenance and they were there in 5 min. Said oops and brought a new refrigerator to replace the defective one within 30 min. Wow!
Only real issue is no beach. But the Grand Hyatt is next door and a 5 min. walk.
The Point at Poipu is on the south coast of Kauai and overlooks a high bluff towards the ocean. They are fully furnished with kitchens, nice pool and spas. It is a very short walk to Shipwreck Beach near the Hyatt. Sea turtles can be observed daily from the bluff. I have seen weddings performed here, beautiful venue.
We were here in mid July and loved it. The staff was helpful and friendly. Everyone greets you as they go by. Our room was Ocean view and there is no complaint. Only thing was parking was tough on our side of the resort, long walk back to the room and hardy a spot when we come back from dinner in the late evening. I may ask for the other side of resort next time as they seem to have more and closer parking. One of my members is in a wheelchair so that was a bit of a problem with either walking all the way around the back or going thru the buildings but having to take multiple elevators.
The pool area was nice, enough umbrellas provided and not always very busy while I was there. The extra spa in the courtyard of building 2,3,4 was nice and great for an evening soak.
The resort is a bit out of the way from the airport so you do need a car. But it is also a close distance to a few mall areas and towns for dinner and such.
The room was spacious and everything we needed was there. Only thing is the housekeeper forgot to replenish laundry detergent mid-week and we only had one to begin with.
Overall we loved the island, the resort and is already thinking of a return.
Spacious, very clean, and up to date 2 bedroom unit that overlooked the garden area--and part of the ocean. Access to the beach but not for swimming. You could drive a mile or two one way for a public beach which was nice--but busy. Or walk towards the Grand Hyatt's beach. (Their luau was great by the way.) The living room was large, and could've easily accommodated 2 more guests with the sleeper sofa. Pool was big and pretty busy during peak hours. Concierges were great at helping you find deals on luau's and such. That may be partly due to that we were there on a Samplers Points package with Diamond Resorts too though. (If you go to a sales presentation to get discounts--if they say it'll be an hour it will be probably closer to two.) All the staff we encountered were courteous and helpful. Lots to do in the area, but you need a car--unless you enjoy walking 4 or 5 miles to things. The whole island is beautiful! We recommend the Blue Dolphin Sunset Tour of the NaPali coast line. Beautiful. And Waimea Canyon is also.
