Had another amazing stay at WC! A quick 3 day weekend to see the Kauai Marathon! Unit 230 was perfect-very well appointed. The service is always 5*. Aileen at the front office was so professional and accomodating and the daily room service is a huge bonus. Loved watching the spinner dolphins from the lanai..the sunsets and most of all the tranquility! Never disappointed..it is a kama'aina favorite!

Room Tip: every condo has an ocean view

Awesome place. We stayed in unit 132 and it was nothing short of perfect. The sight and sound of the nonstop crashing waves was unforgettable. The unit itself was spacious, spotless and felt like a home instead of a vacation villa. We tried not spending a lot of time in the condo (since there is so much to do around the island), but what time we did spend there was fabulous. Unforgettable views, but since we were facing south, we didn't get the sunsets from our lanai. Didn't matter, we still loved the place and would love to live there.

Our say at Whales Cove was everything that we had hoped it would be. Our condo 233 was the perfect ocean front accomdations. We loved to set on your lanai each day and watch the turtles and waves crash on the rocks. The staff was warm and personable, who loving care for this home away from home. We can't wait to come back in the winter to watch the whales from our lanai.

Room Tip: building 2 allows you views of whales cove and the ocean

We stayed at whalers cove for a night and a day and it was by far the best resort we stayed at on the island. We stayed there in a two bedroom condo, with a beautiful view of the ocean. two bedroom with a kitchen and living room. very spacious and very relaxing. This resort has a pool area, over looking the cove and the ocean, and also had access to the ocean. very clean and very nice. Very Nice staff. all friendly. Also a great place for snorkeling and scuba diving

Well we are not sure how you beat Whalers Cove (we stayed in #130), no car noise, this boutique resort is amazing. You will love Marianne and Aileen, become addicted to the sunsets and afternoons by the pool, watching the turtles that live in the lagoon or a wonderful dinners either out of on your lanai. We spent a lot of time discovering the island, spent a day on a secluded beach, played golf at Popui Bay, dinner at Beachhouse and lunch at Joe's on the Green. Each morning we walked down to the Spouting Horn and then planned over daily Event. Lots to do for adults-kids will like the ATV or Zip Lines. Our favorite day was the Makana boat trip up the Napali Coast-incredible. Another adventure was attending the Koloa Missionary Church on Sunday, Aloha is definately alive at Whalers Cove-We are already planning to come back!

Room Tip: Book direct, all are oceanfront.

We had a wonderful time at Whalers Cove! Our condo had a beautiful ocean view and nice comfortable furniture. We enjoyed coffee on the balcony each morning. The condo was very quiet and the pool was never busy. We enjoyed swimming late in the afternoon and having the jacuzzi all to ourselves.
We saw lots of turtles as they were swimming into Turtle Cove. We were able to watch the Kauai Marathon from our balcony. It was exciting to see the runners on their last mile.
Marianne, the on-site manager, and Eileen were very welcoming and always helpful. I recommend booking directly with the resort so that they can help you if you have any questions or need anything. You will also have housekeeping each day and fresh towels if you book through the resort.
We definitely made the right choice with Whalers Cove. We liked everything about it. We were sad to leave. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to all--unless you are looking for a party atmosphere.

This is a fantastic property. Service is excellent;condos are lovely. The manager knows everything about the area, and is extremely helpful. Sea turtles are nearby every afternoon, and approachable. The condo had fantastic ocean views. Best orchid garden I have ever seen. It's a great location, near great beaches, snorkeling, outdoor activities, restaurants and shopping. It's small and personal with great service. One of the nicest places I've stayed.
