Princeville accomodations- beach access

WE are a family with 2 teenagers thinking about traveling to Princeville next month. Would like a recommendation on a hotel that has beach access and is not isolated. We don't golf...is there enough to do in the Princeville area?

Princeville is up on a bluff and beach access is down paths. Some are easy and some are not. Really not!!!

As far as hotels there is truly only one and that is The St Regis. It does have direct beach access. The Westin is a timeshare property and they do not have easy beach access. You COULD walk down to Anini Beach and their shuttle takes you to their sister property, St Regis. Hanalei Bay Resort are condos/timeshares/hotel rooms (rent a privately owned unit for the best ones) and they have direct access to the same beach as The SR down a paved path or if you have a lot to lug, the golf carts will take you. Other than that there are no hotels. The Princeville community is just a small section of the beautiful North Shore. Within 5-10 minutes is horseback riding, zipline, mini golf, kayaking, Hanalei Town, stand up paddle boarding and 20-30 minutes away from the top snorkeling locations during the summer and the famous Kalalau Trail is 35 minutes away for a hike they will never forget.

In Princeville you will find more private homes and condos vs hotels unless your budget says okay to the pricey St Regis. Hope this helps.

Whatever you decide, next month is a busy time on the island, especially the North Shore. Your pickins' might be slim.

Might want to look at Poipu instead. Beach access is much better on the south shore in general unless you go for a private house/cottage on the beach.

The Lihue Marriott is also a possibility.

What's y our budget? will you consider a condo rather than a hotel? Any other items in your wish list?

might want to start with the "which side of the island" Top Question thread to start getting a handle on what you want
