We were in Poipu May 25-31, 2015. Our “best bets”: Kiahuna Plantation in Poipu is a wonderful place to stay, with a fabulous beach (but the signature restaurant is closed till July). Keoki’s Palace, right across the street, has really good food, ambiance and service; worth the rather high price. A relative bargain for foodies is La Spezia wine bar and restaurant in Koloa Old Town; comfy, laid-back, good salads and local seafood. Casa Di Amici also very good if you want to splurge on creative “fusion” cuisine.
Kuilau Ridge Trail in Kapaa is a fairly easy (by Hawaii standards) hike with incredible views. If you only have time for one hike, do this one.
I concur with a reader below who said Allerton Gardens is not worth the pricey admission. Very underwhelming. Same goes for McBride Gardens.
