We stayed in 607 - a one bedroom suite facing the wild foliage (palm trees, lemon trees) and really enjoyed it. The suite has a full kitchen, dining area, living area, bathroom and large bedroom which has a patio door onto the lanai. The suite is very clean and comfortable and everything looks new. There are roosters that crow at... More

We had a great time! The negative reviews below no longer apply as this property is under new ownership, don't be afraid to book. The location was fantastic, the unit we stayed in was great.

Wonderfully helpful staff for tours, restaurants and directions. The property is well maintained and beautiful, right on the golf course. The units are large, clean, nicely furnished and fully equipped. Ready to eat in or go to the gas bar-b-ques for grilling. Parking is right in front of the units, but not noisy. Great walking or running trails all the... More

None of the earlier reviews have any validity. There has been a change in management companies, with Grand Pacific Resorts taking over from Wyndham. There is now staff present from 8-8. They are very accommodating and welcoming. The unit must have been updated recently as we experienced none of the situations recounted by other reviewers. The unit was spotless; not... More

The staff was lovely and helpful in every respect but this property has porous walls. The tiny elephant herd above us was us at 4-5 am every morning, stomping around and waking us up.

Just got back from Princeville today. I feel like a week of hard earned vacation and a lot of money was wasted staying at the Wyndham.

Adjacent to the Makai Golf Course, about a dozen cottages are all stand-alone, well-equipped, & very roomy, with a rear deck overlooking the valley.
