Best Things To Do in Kauai
The Garden Island offers an endless amount of outdoor activity, whether you're looking to hike, kayak, swim or relax on the beach. By and far the most popular attraction on the island is the one-of-a-kind Napali Coast, which is best seen on foot hiking the infamous Kalalau Trail, trekking the edges of Koke’e State Park or from the air on a helicopter tour. You can also explore the waters surrounding the coast via one of the best Kauai boat tours. If you're looking for a little less adventure, consider visiting the lower-impact Wailua River State Park or taking a dip in the calm waters of Poipu Beach Park or Kalapaki Beach. Those more interested in the underwater scenery will be in awe of the views from Hanalei Bay, Ke'e Beach or Tunnels Beach, the latter of which is considered one of the top spots for snorkeling on island

Everything was as advertised. This was our third trip to Kiahuna Plantation. For the price and having such a nice beach area you cannot beat it. You can either lay out on the sand or stay up on the grass, above the sand, which we like. Chairs and towels are available at no cost. You can swim, learn to surf board, or do some snorkeling (somewhat limited).
The fans have always been all we have needed but we do travel in Feb. when things are a little cooler. The walk to the beach area takes 3 to 4 mins., I walk slow.
Improvements have been made to the restaurant which were needed. Food was good and drinks were better and of course bring your wallet.
The TV had cable with many, many channels. I did notice the channels duplicated themselves with different numbers but still more channels than you will ever need. Smaller flat screen. Had a very good wifi connection for us, we do not game. Also, as most do, the cable channel had many music channels which we really enjoyed.
The view of the MOIR garden is right off the patio and it is great. You can see the ocean if you really look hard through the vegetation.
We did not use the pool or gym this trip (should have). When we were there several years ago it was very nice. With it being across the road from the main complex does take away from using the complex but then again there is value to keeping the grounds nice and no noise from a pool area.
For individuals going on your first trip to Hawaii there are two things you need to keep in mind. First, the price of food is very high. This includes the grocery store. They do have a Walmart, Costco, and Safeway as well as smaller stores but things do cost a lot more here. Second, is the day/night you leave. It makes a long day if you do not plan out your last day. As a sidebar traffic is an issue around Lihue, Wailua, and Kapaa.
We are seniors, from a colder state and we do love Hawaii.
Thank you for your excellent review when staying in my unit 303. It seems to me you had a wonderful time. You described all very well and gave good advices to futur guests when visiting Kauai.
The only thing I do not understand you gave only 1* Star to Kiahuna Plantation/Outrigger ? Reading your excellent review I was expecting 4 to 5 stars! I don’t know what happened? It will be very nice of you to let me know what went wrong? and I will to correct any problems with my
rental agent Outrigger Hôtels & Resorts
Please you are very welcome to my unit 303 any time in the future

Can't beat Hawaii

Four and a half stars.
We truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was fantastic and the owner was very helpful with the booking.
The condo isn't brand new but has been upgraded and is VERY well maintained and although it is a ground floor unit at the entrance the lanai overlooking the garden is actually at second floor height so you have quite a bit of privacy.
Speaking of the garden it is the only thing that kept us from giving a 5 star rating (there is no 4.5 rating). Although the gardens are very nice no one seems to be maintaining them. Some of the paths through them have been allowed to grow in and the water features are not operating. It is still a nice place but it seems to be "unloved" and returning to it's original state.
Other than the garden everything is first rate. The beach is a 3 minute walk away and there are plenty of beach chairs. It's even closer to a wall that people sit on and watch the sun set over the ocean. There is a golf course within walking distance as well as shopping and restaurants.
The closet is full of beach gear including boogie boards and snorkel gear and the kitchen is well stocked if you decided to cook.
So if don't need to have everything shiny and new and are happy with a more comfortable but still clean and thoughtfully upgraded place that has a homey feel you can't go wrong with this rental.
Aloha and thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you have enjoyed
your stay in unit 303 managed by Outrigger Hotels & Resorts. Regarding the Moir Cactus Garden I have informed our General Manager of your remarks. He gave me the following explanations "The information regarding the Garden is also useful. The garden poses a particular challenge with its age and the size of the cacti that thrive there. Richard Arruda is our new Grounds Manager and has been looking at ways to improve the area. I will share your email with him"
Thank you for letting us know.
Do not forget, you will be always welcome to Kiahuna Plantation, my home
