Lovely location and views, poor...
Pros: The views and location were sensational!
Cons: The apartment was not clean, the beds (mattresses) were old and uncomfortable. The pull out beds were a disgrace! Surely they are from the 1940's!! Disgusting!!!

Right on the ocean in...
Pros: We stayed in 203A and really enjoyed our stay. We loved being right on the ocean with a full ocean view. Loved having 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen (coffee pot, toaster, microwave, ice maker, plenty of dishes, cups, silverware, pots/pans, etc...even Tupperware!) Loved the easy access to the swimming beach. We had no issues with parking. There are 3 levels of parking, and we usually got parking on the 2nd level. We would definitely stay here again and again. It was so nice waking up and seeing the ocean view. The pool was very nice and would only be better if it had a hot tub nearby as well.
Cons: The unit has wicker carpet which is really uncomfortable to walk on without shoes. I'm sure it has its benefits, but I'd update it to either tile, or some other indoor/outdoor carpeting that is more pleasant to a bare foot. The unit had pretty much everything we needed, except for salt/pepper/cooking spray/laundry detergent. These are items that are too big to buy for just a few days stay, but would have been great to have on hand in the unit. The unit did have soap for the dishwasher, which was very much appreciated.

Great location, lovely pool but...
Pros: Great location, easy walk to Poipu Beach which is a nice beach for swimming and snorkelling. We enjoyed the pool very much and loved watching the turtles from the pool deck. We were also lucky enough the enjoy dolphins from the lanai one morning. Nice updated kitchen and master ensuite (room 105A).
Cons: The whole property is a bit tired. Its visible that the property gets a battering by its proximity to the sea. Our "deluxe" apartment room (105A) was tired, outdated and not clean. Parts of the apartment had been updated but other parts in desperate need of an update (and thorough clean). We asked reception if there was another room available but she explained that as alot of the owners were occupying their properties at that time there was nothing else available. Curtains not clean at all and need to be stripped along with some of the outdated furniture. Basic things like having a valance on the bed would make it alot nicer. We kept the screen doors closed at all times but still had a problem with insects in one of the rooms. There were alot of sand flies flying around in one particular room and they would die and land on the linen of the bed. Not nice to go to bed and find dead sand flies all over the white sheets. We didn't end up sleeping in that room that night but we didn't complain as it was our last night there anyway. Full kitchen but no basics like salt or pepper provided. We booked the apartment for this complex through Castle Resorts rather than directly with an owner/manager as we wanted a room that was going to be serviced etc. Room was not serviced at all - towels replaced only once. We didn't see any benefit out of booking through Castle Resorts rather than directly with owner/manager.
