Quiet, rustic, rough around the edges, beautiful grounds, chocolate sand beaches, no one swimming.

Peaceful cottages steps away from the water!

Posted Mar 9, 2017
Pros: Staff was very friendly!
Location: Kauai coffee company is a short drive away (maybe 2 miles) and the perfect stop for gifts, a touristy picture or two,and of course, great coffee!
I almost don't want to write a good review because I don't want this little gem to be overrun with tourists. The cottages are clean and comfortable with all of the little amenities you need. The kitchen is well stocked with tools for cooking and the BBQ is right in the backyard. My favorite part of the stay was sitting on the porch watching the ocean while the chickens walked the grounds, pecking and crying. It was perfect!

Awesome!

Felt like I walked onto the set of Dirty Dancing. Authentic and conveniently located to beaches, canyon, and cliffs.

Ocean view

Posted Feb 25, 2017
I booked a cottage with an ocean view and i was given a cottage with no view, except a tiny one if you stood and binded on the side of the terrace... The hotel staff partially admitted and offered the resort fee, which was not acceptable...

Great place to relax, slow down and enjoy Kauai

This was our second time staying at the Plantation Cottages. Both times we told ourselves we should have stayed longer. I received men's paying a little more to get an ocean view. You feel like you are the only ones there.

Pros: Location, grounds, and view.
Cons: Could provide minimum spices for cooking. The cottage could have used a good dusting and the kitchen was greasy.
Beautiful grounds and great ocean view. The day front desk staff was helpful and friendly. The evening staff, not so much. The cottage was nicely furnished but they could also have provided salt, pepper, and sugar. The cottage could have used a good dusting and the kitchen was greasy.

Classic Plantation Cottages

Posted Feb 14, 2017
Pros: You are taken back in time and thereby better appreciate the cultural richness of Hawaii.l
Incredible restoration of plantation worker's and owner's homes assembled in an inviting park-like setting. Some homes beachfront and many more with ocean view. A very comfortable relaxing experience. We stayed for seven days and hated to leave.

Not very quiet or clean

Posted Dec 22, 2016
The first cottage (SS14) seemed to be the last one standing among the ruins of old cottages with terrible views out of windows and next to animal shed of the adjacent neighborhood. Roosters were crowing all the time. We were able to move to a different cottage which was in a nicer location but the dining table was so sticky and filthy. It took scrubbing with soap many times before you see no more film of sticky filth on the paper towel... Their kitchen is not well-equipped either but the ground and location are quite nice.

Loved staying here and wish I stayed longer.

Posted Dec 15, 2016
Pros: Close to Waimea Canyon and Polihale beach.
Location: Polihale beach is one of the best beaches on the entire island. Kind of a long drive and it is a rough road (recommend 4x4) but well worth it.
I stayed in the studio with my girlfriend and this was perfect for us. Small kitchen with refrigerator, walking distance to the beach and hammocks to watch the sunset. Will definitely be staying here again.

Resort fees are quite expensive and don't offer much value. When I asked what they were for the person at the front desk mention it was for the free water, juice, coffee and newspaper. Not worth the amount they charge
