This is a lovely, new timeshare resort on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The location is good: close to the Princeville shops and Hanalei. The units are beautifully decorated and well-stocked. Yes, the pools are not warmly heated but we thought they were fine. The "quiet" pool is a lovely small plunge pool and it really was quiet. The other pools are full of children. If you are NOT traveling with children ask for a room away from the kiddie pool unless you enjoy shrieking toddlers. One big plus is the reciprocal privileges at the St. Regis, about 1.5 miles away. The beach setting there is spectacular, the amenities nicely done (free use of lounge chairs, umbrellas, ice water). This really helps make up for the lack of a beach at the villas. Note that most of the rooms are not ocean-view. But, the location at the end of a road is private and the property does not feel crowded, even during a fully-booked holiday week (Thanksgiving).
Service is warm and professional. We were offered a food credit of $10 per day in lieu of daily maid service and we took it. Since the units have washers, dryers, vacuum etc. we were happy with that. Concierges are plentiful and helpful. Since these units have little kitchens, a trip to Costco is a must. It's about three miles from the airport and has snorkel gear, beach towels, sunscreen, shorts, beach chair, inexpensive liquor ($30 for a big bottle of Bombay Sapphire) and of course the pizzas.
