This was my third visit to Whalers Cove and I can't recommend it enough. The rooms are huge, the double showerhead was cool. You can see sea turtles and amazing sunsets. In the morning you can go down and snorkel with the turtles right outside the property. And in the mornings, if you get lucky, you can see dolphins swim... More

Our family of four stayed in one of the two bedroom units. Whalers Cove did not disappoint! The pool and surround are pristine, and Koloa Landing (adjacent) is a nice spot for an ocean swim, snorkel or shore dive. Baby beach is a 3 or 4 minute walk away (and is waaaay less crowded than Poipu Beach park, although you... More

Our family of 4 ( 2 kids in their 20s) all loved Whalers Cove during our June 2016 trip. Our 2 story ocean front view with the fabulous lanai and master bath/bedroom overlooking the ocean was exactly what we had hoped. I seriously could have sat on that lanai the entire 8 days. I think to date it was my... More

We came to Kauai after staying 5 nights at a 2 bedroom luxury condo resort (much larger) in Maui. I have to say, Whalers Cove was a pleasure to stay at. The service and attention to detail here is remarkable. The location could not be better! The views from our balcony were unreal....we saw dolphins and turtles and I felt... More

This place is amazing!!! On the ocean, laid back, beautiful, and has daily maid service. All for the right price. We stayed one week at a resort on the Big Island, and this condo beats that, hands down. The only problem is no A/C. A couple of nights, there was no breeze, so that made it a bit uncomfortable, but... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and when people asked about our trip to Hawaii, we both said this was our favorite part. The staff was kind and helpful.
