After a week in Poipu, we moved north for a week at the Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas. We found it to be much more scenic than we expected from the reviews we had read. The landscaping is lush and colorful throughout. The main pool area offered adequate shade and a lovely view of mountain or sea. One of the “quiet” pools had an even prettier vista. Subtle and relaxing Hawaiian music is piped into these public areas during the day. On a couple afternoons we opted to drive to the St. Regis Hotel (free valet parking) to use the beach there. Very nice! Also, as you’d expect, VERY expensive food & beverage service, which at the Westin was more reasonable.
We saw lots of grills on the property, and a convenient grocery store made this an attractive option for lots of families. We prefer to dine out. Nanea, on-site at the Westin, was actually our favorite dining experience in the Princeville area.
Our unit was a studio in building 7, with a view of the Kilauea Lighthouse peninsula. Lots of birds to watch. We enjoyed the friendly pairs of nenes. The accommodations were spotless and spacious enough, although the very tiny kitchen sink was difficult to use.
In October our weather was near perfect. Rain showers at night or early morning gave way to lovely afternoons. We will return to this resort on another trip.
