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 have a lovely two bedroom apartment with all the amenities we could ask for. The view of the ocean is spectacular! Last night we saw the nearly full moon reflecting on the water and it was both beautiful and romantic. We love Diamond Resorts, they are always top notch.
Our family came here to relax and enjoy the island. I have a 6 year grandson with us, so I specifically requested a lower level condo. Day 5 into our trip a family with 3 small children were booked above us. Immediately they started running, jumping & screaming. When I called the front desk I was told that legally they could not ask them to move. I explained this was my vacation too !! They finally offered to see if they had another room to move “US”. Move Us?? We are unpacked with fully stocked kitchen. Move the family upstairs !!! THAT WAS A BIG NO!
We woke at 5am to them running and screaming again this morning and now at 4pm it is still going on. I have called and called the front desk. They supposedly have called the family but yet here we are still dealing with it!
Note to self don’t stay at where each guest matters !!
We stayed 7 nights. Myself, husband and 20 year old son. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo garden view. The room was fantastic. It was really big, but great for 3 adults. The property is beautiful, and having trails to hike right on property is a huge bonus. We loved how centered this resort is to everything, we were so close to everything. I’d have given it 5 stars but I was not happy with the water pressure in the shower, and the fact that the resort controls the water temperature, so it just stays mildly warm, which meant I was cold throughout the entire shower. It didn’t bother me enough to make a big deal about it, but it was very annoying taking extra long showers just to get all the shampoo out of my hair and soap off my skin. Otherwise, the resort is fabulous. We did not go to the timeshare presentation. In fact we unplugged both phones in the room so that we were never bothered or woken up for any timeshare stuff. We were there to fully relax. We are also not owners, just vacationers. We chose this resort based on it being centered and the rooms being big.
Beautiful location above the ocean. This is a nice accommodation for family travelers. It is older but very well-maintained with hotel staff and groundskeepers working constantly. The pool is huge and there is a jacuzzi as well as lifts for the handicapped. There are daily activities planned (coffee tasting, jewelry making) in which we did not participate. A no-host luau was offered with bus transportation. A restaurant and bar are on the premises. Beach access is a short walk. The grounds and the path to the beach are on grades and may not be easily accessible by wheelchair or walker.
Well upon entering you know its going to be a relaxing week. We showed up on a week where they were re paving parking lot. General Manager Jamie did everything she could to make sure it all went smoothly. couldn't say enough about her and the attitude that everyone has there about making your stay enjoyable.
Happy hour is amazing , rooms were fantastic. keep up the great work
