We attempted to check in on June 12th at 2pm in the afternoon, but was to find something to do until 4pm, which I understand as their standard check in time, however, when we arrived at 3pm to "pre-register" several other guests were in the process of checking in with no problem. This was rather frustrating since we were told no rooms are ever ready before 4pm. Either way, we were given our 2 rooms in separate buildings, but the sweet gal at the front desk decided to move our rooms to be in the same building. We got to our rooms 801 & 802 and were a bit shocked at the lack of maintenance done to the buildings. The rooms were in need of serious repairs (door to lanai wouldn't lock, dishwasher only worked in you held the door closed, the carpet and furniture seemed to be at least 25 years old & dirty, etc). I even found a safety pin (open) on the bedroom carpet. (I didn't even feel comfortable taking off my shoes). When my crib arrived, I was astonished that such an item would be in use. The crib was broken and filthy, so lucky us, our daughter slept in our bed the entire week. The room on the 1st floor (which we nicknamed the basement) was crawling with spiders and we even found a centipede. I had to keep reminding myself that I was happy to be in Kauai, aside from the filth of the condos. The pool was quite disappointing, the jacuzzi could only fit 3 people at a time. It wasn't until day 4 that we were told we could use the other pools associated with Wyndham.
The great part about staying at the Makai Club was the beautiful walking paths and close proximity to Hanalei Bay (my favorite beach). Staying in the Princeville area is very peaceful and relaxing, however, I would not stay at the Makai Club, you'd be better off somewhere else. I would have rather not traded my 2 weeks of timeshare rental from Cabo San Lucas for these units, next time I will rent a decent hotel room.
