Whalers Cove Oceanfront Resort

Reviewed February 25, 2002

We stayed at several places in Kauai (Hyatt, Sheraton, Hanalei Bay Resort, etc both on the North Shore and the South Shore. We loved Whalers Cove unit 116, 2 bedroom/2 bath we rented directly from the owners for half the price
195-225 that Whalers Cove normally charge 300-400. It was worth every penny. Oceanfront, private, full kitchen if you chose to cook, lanai, pool, jac.
The location was ideal, you are truly oceanfront. Unless you prefer crowds, this is the best place to stay in Kauai. Very clean, very comfortable, bugless! And everyone told me I would see a cockroach no matter where we stayed. (They were at the Hyatt) Well, Whalers Cove was the only place we stayed where I did not see a single bug. Cute keckos, but no Bugs.
The Hyatt was nice, but very overpriced and crowded. And for 335.00 a night (bargain rate) we had no view and had to walk a mile to get to the pool. At Whalers Cove, there are only 35 units, so it is very private.

Room Tip: ダイレクトで芝生の庭に出ることが出来る1階がおすすめ、別荘の様。コロアタウンで買い出し食事は部屋で、この場所が最高だから・・・
