We decided to spend Thanksgiving at The Point at Poipu. I’ll be submitting a review, but wanted to highlight a few things from this week.

It’s been very windy most days, but, overall, the weather has been great. It’s rained a few nights, but today is the only day it rained during daytime. The resort staff has been great.

We had a hiccup with room type, but the check-in receptionist took care of us, and moved us to a room with a great view. The pool bar/eatery staff have been excellent as well.

We came here with no itinerary except to take our daughter to the canyon. We did that on day 3; little to no wind and not many clouds in the sky. We’ve spent time by the pool and walking the grounds and nearby areas. We were fortunate enough to see some seals near Shipwreck Beach.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time here and look forward to coming back next year.

We arrive on Saturday for a week!

Our first time there, and DH wants to know what kind of coffeemaker? He wants to bring the right kind of filters.

The coffee makers are flat basket "Mr. Coffee" style.

DRI: The Point at Poipu, 3 deeded weeks, 1 of which is in The Club.
Have you seen any remodeling construction that's underway? I'm not sure what schedule they're on.

As you're strolling around the grounds, here's some tips.

1) If you walk past the beacon until you get to the corner of the fence for the adjacent property, you can see a sea arch.

2) There's a small blowhole on a lava plateau on the east side of the beacon. The waves have to be just right to see it.

3) If you haven't seen them yet, there's nearly always turtles in the cove near where the path from the pool goes down to the ocean.

If you're interested in more pictures, here's some I've collected over the years.

Artringwald, thanks for sharing those amazing photos. Hawaii is such a beautiful state. I also, liked how your photos showed the room numbers of your actual stay at the resort. :thumbup::thumbup::whooopie::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

No, but I ran into a VP in the pool area, and he mentioned it's coming (both inside and outside).
