We stayed in a private condo rented only through Kauai Vacation Rentals unit 6-306 with absolutely beautifully decorated and had gorgeous ocean vista views allowing for great whale watching during our March 2015 stay. The resort itself was beautiful and had great amenities and a very nice redone pool. This property located in Beautiful Princeville.

Ours was a timeshare swap and we couldn't be more pleased. The Cliffs are all luxurious accommodation in the heart of Princeville. Ours is 900 sqft 1 bedroom 2 bath that sleeps 4 comfortably 5 would be a bit of a squeeze. The unit has everything including washer/ dryer and even beach chairs to take with you to the beach....

We booked our week at The Cliffs through HSI 5 weeks before our stay. Prior to booking, I checked prices on some other sites and we received the lowest rate through HSI. The units shown on the Cliffs website looked great and for the most part, the reviews were favorable. I called HSI after booking to request a 2nd floor... More

Aloha from the Cliffs, I'm sorry the location of your unit did not meet up to your expectations. You are correct in that we are currently running a full house and the ability to move rooms is limited. We don't hold rooms, but do need to maximize our reservations by lining up reservations effectively so as to avoid wasted space.... More

This was our first visit to the Cliffs Resort and what a fine visit it has been. We exchanged into the Cliffs Resort as an RCI exchange, booking a sleep 6 unit. The unit was spacious and roomy for our family of 5. The master bedroom is complete with a desk, a sitting chair, two dresser drawers, television, ceiling fan,... More

This was our second visit to Kauai and our first visit to The Cliffs. We had a one bedroom unit with a bit of an ocean view. The unit was clean and well equipped. The grounds are lovely. The property is close to restaurants, golf, beaches, etc. though a car is necessary. The people available for facials and massages were... More

This was our first visit to Kauai and we based our decision to stay at the Cliffs Club largely on the positive reviews found on this site. I can say without hesitation our stay was wonderful in every measurable way. The location is perfect, perched high on a cliff face allowing fabulous views of the north shore, particularly good for...

Our 900 SF - one bed unit would be large enough for us to hunker-down for a long stay. The kitchen was kitted-out with all cookware and utensils -- minus a salad spinner. We were on the ground floor (usually a negative for us) facing a large grassy yard and trees which gave it a feel of a large, private... More

My wife and I stayed in a first floor condo for 3 nights in January. The condo was clean and well-furnished (we were told it had been recently remodeled). Every morning nenes and other birds would visit us on the lanai (a bonus for being on the first floor). Even though there are many condos packed into 3 story buildings,... More

Aloha from The Cliffs, I was pleased to see you were happy with our resort in general and the unit itself. It was, of course, disappointing to hear about your wi-fi problems. We have spent a rather sizable sum (pushing $100k) to upgrade our system and for the most part our guests are pleased with our service as reported on... More

We found that this was an older vacation resort that we found using Trading Places. The unit was on the first floor but it does have units with ocean views, now that we know. The unit had all the conveniences we would expect and one building was being renovated at the time of our stay, but not a problem for... More

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

Aloha from The Cliffs, Mahalo for your comments and views of our resort. We take great pride in our facility and appreciate your feedback. Regarding the "$80 Resort Fee", that information is passed on to II, your booking source" and is clearly stated in the confirmation info you should have received from II.
