I posted on a different forum, but thought I'd ask on the Poipu forum as well-
I will be in Poipu in April of next year and I'm trying to decide between 2 specific accommodations, both listed on the parrish collection website. Has anyone stayed at both Koloa Landing (specifically 6303) and Poipu Sands (unit #525)? If I could combine the two, I'd have the perfect place I'm looking for - Poipu sands has a nice view of Shipwreck Beach and a nice walking path to get there, a nice lanai and a decent size pool. Koloa Landing has upgraded furnishings, a great pool and more hotel amenities (bar, etc.). So I'm torn between the two. We are staying at Hanalei Bay Resort as well, so we will have the "resort experience" on the north shore.
One thing that concerns me is that I read someone's post that they had a terrible problem with roaches when they stayed at Poipu Sands. They did not say which unit they stayed at, so I don't have any idea if it was the one I am interested in, or a different one. They said it was so bad they had to check out and find somewhere else to stay. Has anyone else had this experience there? We are leaning towards the PS condo because of the ocean view, so I'd really like to know if this is a common problem with PS in general, or just a weird thing that happened with this persons unit.
Thanks so much for any input.
