Some of the reviews are so negative that I can't believe they are talking about one of our very favorite places to stay. We have had quite a few trips to this spectacular location and can't wait to return. The staff have always been extremely pleasant and very helpful. The renovations that have been done over the last five years were much needed and although some units may not be completely updated yet, most are. If you check in and have ANY issue, please contact the day staff as they are usually very able to help you. If you are not an owner, still go by the owners meetings and let that staff know of your concerns. Although the units do not have air conditioning, this should be very clear when you make your reservations. The winds normally blow enough to assist with cooling the units down in the evenings. At times, late afternoon till sunset can be a bit uncomfortable but why sit in your unit at this time of the day? There are so many wonderful things to see and do on island that I can't imagine spending much time there until after sunset. As far as bug bites, I doubt those are flea bites - you should use insect repellant on island day and night if you do want mosquito bites. I have learned that the hard way and missed a few days of fun while having massive doses of Benadryl on board due to the quantity of bites I received at a Luau. Please don't let the poor reviews discourage you - look at all of the positive ones as well. Any vacation is what you make of it.

Room Tip: depends on if you want a great mountain or ocean view - call and ask for a request in whichever you...

Aloha from the Cliffs!
I was delighted to read you enjoyed your recent stay. We have completed our renovations which included a make over of our recreation building. We have added a small fitness center as well.
All of our units have ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms. With our natural trade winds this usually keeps us very comfortable.
We have a great staff here at the Cliffs. They are ready to assist our guests at any time.

Thank you again for your kind words and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Cliffs!

The 2 bedroom unit was wonderfully functional and modern. The king size bed was so comfortable. There are two good sized balconies to enjoy your morning coffee on.The resort itself had very nice pools and hot tubs. The recreation building was well appointed with lots of additional books to exchange. The staff were great at arranging trips of interest with the local service providers.

We just returned from a fabulous week at the Cliffs. We traded our timeshare and had a beautiful 2 bedroom unit on the third floor - the second bedroom was a loft, so we had vaulted ceilings, and also a balcony facing the ocean, as well as one facing the mountains and overlooking the pool. It was nicely appointed and had every detail taken care of - beach chairs, plenty of beach towels, cooler, coffee and filters, etc. We loved the North Shore, and found this location convenient to Hanalei, and the the Princeville plaza with grocery, restaurant, shops, etc. Also close to Queen's bath, which is a beautiful spot to hike to. We were in unit 5304, and would love to stay there again - definitely planning to trade here again. When people mentioned no AC I was a bit concerned, but with the cross-ventilation, it was so much nicer to have the breezes coming through. The concierge was wonderful as well!

Room Tip: two bedroom units seem to be on the top floor and have two balconies

Aloha from the Cliffs,

Mahalo for your kind review. We also feel we have a piece of paradise here at the Cliffs! I will share your kind words with our Concierge team. They are amazing with all the great tips they have to make sure you have lots of things to keep you as busy as you want to be on you vacation.
Yes, you are correct that all our 1 bedroom with loft units are located on the third floor. All of our units have two lanais (balconies). One off the living room and the other off the master bed room.
We thank you for trading into the Cliffs and look forward to welcoming you back one day.

The location of The Cliffs is certainly the best thing about this property. We again exchanged our timeshare for a week here and had a really great time; however, wince our stay in May 2010, we've noticed some things with the rooms that could stand to be upgraded.

- We received a few calls at 8 a.m. on a Sunday (or was it Monday?) morning inviting us to a welcome reception. Even though we said we weren't interested, we got another call. This happened a few times - we finally unplugged the phone.

- We were supposed to have our condo cleaned on Tuesday based on our check-in date and length of stay. Someone knocked on our door while we were eating breakfast and asked to drop off cleaning supplies in the bathroom closet. She wasn't there, however, to clean our room. When we asked a housekeeper about cleaning our room she told us we weren't on the schedule. I called the front desk and they told me that because we had checked in on Monday that we weren't scheduled until Thursday. I explained that we checked in on Saturday and I think this really confused them because then we couldn't get housekeeping to leave us alone. The next day we left our room and there was a Hefty bag (of towels and linens?) at our front door. We came back after a day at the beach and the bag was still there. I called the front desk to tell them and to note that our condo still hadn't been cleaned. I said since we were only going to be there another couple of days not to bother. They called back and asked if someone could come tomorrow. I told them yes, but it had to be after 9 a.m. Twenty minutes later a housekeeper was knocking on our door. I asked her to come back in twenty minutes so that we could be gone while she cleaned. When we got back to our room two hours later she was there cleaning. She was a lovely, nice woman and it wasn't her fault, but at that point I was just tired of dealing with housekeeping and wanted some privacy.

- The bathroom showers were showing signs of age and humidity (natural for the islands). In some places the grout and caulk was turning black. The shower head was a complete joke. It sprayed water everywhere but on you. Our bathroom flooded a couple of times because of water shooting out beyond the capabilities of the flimsy shower curtain.

Minus those three issues, it really was a pleasant stay. The kitchens are well-stocked. The pool is lovely. The grounds are well-kept. The grilling station overlooking the ocean is truly a phenomenal location. Down the road we'll probably stay at The Cliffs again because of our timeshare, but I hope before we do they work out some of the kinks communicating with staff, and do something about those showers.

This was our first time to Kauai. The Cliffs provided a wonderful experience for us. Though the resort was full, it was very quiet. The buildings and grounds were well maintained. Our unit was lovely; very spacious and comfortable. Having two lanais on either end of the condo provided excellent air flow. This was important since the unit did not have a/c. It made a great home base for treks to any place on the island. Very convenient for activities along the North Shore. Beach towels, beach chairs, and a cooler were provided too. The staff was more than helpful in providing directions and recommendations for activities. We hope to come back again.
