I habe returned to this bery well-maintained Banyan Harbor property at least a dozen times over the past 25 years and still love it. Many attributes but I love it for it's proximity to Nawiliwili Harbor, beach and Lihue...as well as for it's central location on the Island.

We enjoy our timeshare each year. The location is central to everything we want to do on the island. It is an older property, but clean and in good repair. I highly recommend it to travelers who want to spend their travel dollars on activities and still have good accommodation.

We stayed at Plantation with my family of 3 and our friends and they're 3 kids. We all had a great time. Loved having a kitchen to make meals which is so convenient. Having 3 pools to pick from was great as we could always find an empty one. The staff we met was excellent and even had extra boogie...

Over the last several years, each time I visit Kauai either with my boys or on business by myself: I have enjoyed staying at the Banyan Harbor Resort.

Great location and great price for a stay near Kalapaki Beach. We changed units three times due to making a late reservation for an extended stay. Staff is friendly and really went the extra mile to accommodate us during a very busy season. Maintenance crew is also very responsive to guests needs. There are a number of steps to the...

I stayed here with an RCI exchange. Very friendly staff with great recommendations of places to eat. Our 2 bedroom unit was slightly dated but clean. Very comfortable beds. Loved the washer dryer in the room.

This condo complex is well-maintained and a short, 5-minute walk from Kalapaki Beach. Be aware, however, that many of the suites (interiors) are privately owned and inconsistently maintained. While the exteriors, pool, and BBQ's are common property and of good quality, suite 34 is rundown and extremely disappointing. The kitchen cupboards , dishes, cutlery, etc. make you feel like you're...

The owner of the condo that we stayed in added some personal touches, such as nice photos of attractions from around the island, a ukelele in the livingroom, and lounge chair on the balcony.

This property is well located and beautifully maintained. The pool area has gas grills, clean restrooms and a great view. Try the coffee / gellato store across the street in the little shopping mall - it's great!
