The hotel

Rooms at the Sheraton are nestled amid 20 acres of lush gardens, and you can upgrade for stunning views of Poipu Beach on Kauai's sunny South Shore. Take in stunning natural views all over the resort, from the fitness centre overlooking the ocean to the garden terrace and the restaurants offering panoramic views of the beach. RumFire Poipu Beach allows you to enjoy amazing sunset views over dinner, whilst Lava’s on Poipu Beach is the place for early risers to experience beautiful sunrises.

Celebrated our 30th anniversary and had a wonderful time. I'm picky about hotels and I don't have any complaints. Clean, daily housekeeping service, 2 balconies, great views of the beach.

Celebrated our 30th anniversary and had a wonderful time. I'm picky about hotels and I don't have any complaints. Clean, daily housekeeping service, 2 balconies, great views of the beach. We arrived with flowers on the bed to celebrate our anniversary. A Hawaiian Monk Seal was on the beach when we arrived. Make sure you check out the sea turtles at the neighboring public park/beach at sunset. Lava's had very good food. We hope to return in the future. Read less

Checkin went smoothly. Staff is friendly for the most part. That is the only nice thing, I have to say about this property. This is from someone who has 1300 nights at Marriott properties. Room was dirty and dated. No desk, no outlets near table. Dirty room -- Found a pair of women's underwear draped on the bedside lamp. Lovely. Must have been a wild party. Breakfast. Elites get a choice of pretty much nothing. Add $12 for eggs and you cannot even get toast with it. Best advise is a coffee and a bagel for $12 at the coffee bar (Lites) Dinner meals are expensive and feature brusel sprouts as the main ingredient -- yuck. Suggestion -- Have dinner in town (there is a decent Italian/pizza and burger bar restaurant in Kola and some restaurants/cafe's on Poipu road. Even the Thai food truck on Poipu had better food (actually it was good!!) Worse part is the "come on down to see me and get 1000 points" phone call from the scuzzy car salesman concierge. You state I am here for the 1000 points and do not want to hear about a timeshare. You get -- no I am not here for that. Then some small talk and then the kicker, how about a $250 credit for a presentation. No... How about $500... No good bye (but I better get those 1000 points) Some advise, if you insist on booking here. First be aware (we were) you will pay tax, tax and tax, plus a $40 per day resort fee which is taxed, taxed, taxed. The rooms by the pool are extremely noisy. Request the building not near the pool. Do not use the APP to checkin as that will override any request. We requested a room ocean front not by the pool and the APP automatically assigned us a pool room. Happily the front desk gave us a room (but on the first floor) oceanview. Read less

We really enjoyed timeshare lodgings here. The staff were very nice, and nearby beach, restaurant and outdoor play options we awesome. We really enjoyed this spot as base for south side Kauai exploring. The pool areas weren't huge and were busy early but we spent more time on the very nice nearby beaches.
