Loved the facility. The condo had 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bath. One King facing the ocean and the other with 2 twin beds facing the garden. We had a corner unit, with full privacy at the lanai. Beautiful, spectacular views, with swimming turtles and crashing ocean sounds. Very comfortable unit. Booked it through Castle Resorts. Great value for your...

This is my second time staying in 106A and it will not be the last. The owners have taken great care to make sure you feel at home with all the amenities.

This was my third stay at Poipu Shores, and this was the best unit yet. We stayed in this tastefully furnished 2br/2ba condo in mid June 2011. The upgraded kitchen and full washer/dryer were bonuses, but nothing compares to the view location of this unit. It's on the end, 3rd floor, double wide balcony. The crashing surf and sea turtles...

We stayed at Poipu Shores in August 2009. We stayed in one of the larger 2 bedroom condo units.

The location is great as well. There is no useable...

My husband and I just returned from our 2 week honeymoon in Kauai. We booked via Travelocity and selected Castle Poipu Shores based on the reviews, and really wanted the oceanfront location.
