The rooms were clean with nice furniture, but they do not have air conditioning, so you have to leave your doors opened. When there is a breeze it is fine, but if it is hot with no breeze it is not comfortable. Also, upon arrival I was informed that there was a registration fee of $75.00 and a daily parking... More

We've been here 2 days and are finding the resort quite pleasant. Our initial irritation at being placed in building 2 dissipated when we discovered how nice the room is, with a spacious, private, and open atmosphere. Pros: The units have a patio (with large doors) on each side, so the breeze flows through Clean (very) and new room carpet... More

My first trip to Kauai and it was amazing! Came here with a few friends to explore Hawaii and this was a great choice! It is literally on a cliff! The views were breathtaking and we even saw whales a few times! Though the rooms could have been bigger, it didn't really bother us because we didn't spend too much... More

Aloha, Thank you for reviewing you stay from last January. You will be happy to know that the Humpback whales have started to return.

Nothing bad to say about the facility itself or the staff, all that was great. I gave them 4/5 so that it would not detract from their overall score. Stayed there for a week earlier this month. My issue is just the location and if you're like me and love the beach, you won't like it either. This can be... More

Aloha and Mahalo for your kind words about our property. I'm sorry the fact that we don't sit on the beach was a disappointment for you. However some of the best beaches in Hawaii are just minutes from our property. Kalihiwai beach for instance is 10 minutes at most from our resort and is a 3 mile stretch of beach... More

The Cliffs is a nice resort in Princeville. It is quiet so if peace and quiet is something you would like, this can meet that need. It's 7 minutes from the Princeville shops "in town" so shopping is close. The suites themselves are nicely designed and the decor and furnishings are attractively Hawaiian. They have the amenities like swimming pool... More

We stayed at The Cliffs from Sunday October 12, to Saturday, October 18, 2014. Overall, our stay went well. Although check-in time is 4:00 pm, we were allowed to check in early, at 1:45 pm. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Our four bedroom unit, 6204, was ready. As we approached the unit, we encountered our housekeeper,... More

Beautiful resort with great views and good value - very homey, spacious rooms, equipped kitchens, nice pool area. If you need to work or be in contact online, this place is not an option. Wifi is about as bad as it gets. But if you want to get away from it all, it's a great choice. Some of rooms are... More

The room, location and club is great, but that matters little if you do not live in the stone age and must use the internet for some work and essential personal matters. Management needs to upgrade the wifi system. If they do not in 2015, don't stay here

We traded our timeshare to stay at the Cliffs.

People, do your research. The... More
