This resort is older as so many here are. The room had been remodeled and was mostly clean with the exception of stains on the carpet in Master bedroom. Beware, this resort has a 'resort fee' of $80.00 that neither they or Interval tell you about and a tax rate if $4.98/day. We arrived on Thursday evening and were assigned... More

We stayed in #5106 and it was very nice. The condo has everything you need there, close to the beach and shopping, and short walk to spectacular ocean vista. We could see the ocean from the condo lanai and saw whales every day. We played the golf courses there, also extremely nice. The staff and amenities we're excellant! Good price,... More

We traded a time share through Interval Int. and came up with the Cliffs resort. We love Hawaii but had never been to Kauai so we decided to give it a try right after the 1st of the year (Jan 2 to the 9th). Our plane was 5 hours late so instead of having a nice daylight drive from Lihue... More

I have been coming here for over 20 years now and they are simply the best in town. The maintenance on the grounds is always wonderful and the staff is the friendliest group I have ever dealt with. I love this place and ONLY stay here when I come to Kauai.

We stayed at the Cliffs Club from December 28, 2014 thru Jan 4, 2015 and booked it through our RCI exchange. I am so happy we were able to snag a week at the Cliffs Club. It is a beautiful resort, that sits right on the cliffs with a beautiful view of the ocean below. We saw humpback whales swim... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and could not have been more pleased with our accommodations. We had a 1 bdr. But it had 2 complete washrooms and 2 lanais allowing for beautiful Hawaiian cross breezes. All necessary amenities were provided and numerous diversions such as basketball and tennis courts and a workout room by the pool.... More

Aloha and Mahalo for your kind words. I'm pleased to hear our property and staff met your expectations. As for the lack of a heated pool, our pools are, in fact, heated; however it is a new heat pump system and we're still working on getting the temperatures and settings right. Obviously we still have some work to do. Thanks... More

Total package. On property amenities are superior, staff is friendly, units are clean and updated, location is absolutely beautiful. Staying here is always a pleasure. They have connections to many companies on the island that provide tourist adventures and they can also direct you to points of interest on the island if you are a do-it-yourself vacationer.

We stayed at the Cliffs during a quick 3 day trip to Princeville. We were in building 6 and had an ok garden/tennis court view. While it won't win any awards for architectural or interior design and had a bit of a cookie cutter feel, the furnishings were all in good condition and comfortable, including the one king bed.

We booked last minute and moved across the island. The Cliffs were our 3rd and final property for the week. We were pleasantly surprised with our experience. It was comparable to the Westin property and at a reduced price. We will rebook and request buildings 8 or 9 for a full ocean view. Excellent experience. Perfect for large families (spacious...

We love our visits to Kauai, and decided to try a week in Princeville at The Cliffs. What a marvelous place and location! The "cliffs" are stunning, along the ocean surf, where we watched the ocean and occasional humpback whales (prevalent during Jan-April as they come back to have their calves and mate!) The facilities and rooms are clean, bright,... More
