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 spent a week at the Resort from August 24th-31st. We had stayed here twice before, when it was the Embassy Suites Poipu Beach. Most of the Resort is unchanged from what we remembered, other than wear and tear - the Unit we stayed in had worn out cabinets, toilets were old and not functioning well - we had to call maintenance a couple of times for toilets running, and not flushing. Kitchen seemed untouched as far as updating over the years - appliances and coffee maker, toaster, etc. seemed very worn. Looking back at old photos from previous stays, some of the furnishings and carpeting have been replaced, but overall still pretty worn looking. LOTS of walking at this Resort from parking areas to units, and from Lobby to Units, particularly the Ocean View units. Ocean views are very nice, but there is no beach access. You can walk about 1/2 mile along a trail to a nice sandy beach in front of the Hyatt Hotel. The Resort Pool is really just for wading - I remember it being sandy bottomed, but it is presently concrete, with a small sand beach surrounding it on one side. No on site Restaurant other than a Pool Bar which serves food and beverages, so for a Restaurant type meal you need to either drive, or walk to the Hyatt. Time Share tour is not worth the time unless you want to buy. Other discounts on activities can be found. Checkout is 11 a.m. so if you have a late night flight to the Mainland, plan accordingly - might want to pay for another night.
Ocean front and 2 bedrooms, Great value on tours and dining. Beautiful landscaping. Love the sounds of the ocean at night and beautiful sunrises. Capt Andy's Trip to Napoli is the best.. need a rental car to enjoy the sites and shopping at your leisure
This was our 4th time on Kauai so we knew the area very well, but it had really developed since our last trip. This hotel was very nice with spacious clean rooms and all the ammenities you need, including dishwasher and in-room laundry. We had an "ocean peek" room on the ground floor but easy access to a huge hot tub and bbq area. We saved a lot of money by cooking our own meals. The grounds were well kept with beautiful flowers and fish ponds, and the pool was perfect for families with small children. The property is very close to Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn, and an easy drive to Waimea Canyon and Lihue.
