Princeville is a quiet, peaceful area away from the hustle and bustle of the more tourist resorts which is more my vibe. The grounds are very pretty but it does lack a beach (although it does offer beach access at the St. Regis about 2 miles away). Unfortunately, the weather was not that great and we weren't able to take advantage of the pool area. Most of our time was spent wandering around the beautiful island of Kauai.
One thing that did bother me was the fact that the staff didn't do a very good job in informing me about the complimentary Continental breakfast that is a benefit I receive as a Starwood Platinum member. The first day Continental breakfast was available, the second day it was a brunch so there was no Continental option and then on my third day (and check out day), I was told i wasn't eligible for the complimentary breakfast. I was slightly annoyed that in fact there really wasn't much of a continental option during my stay.More
