We just love Makai Club on Kauai. The staff are so great and they make you feel like family. Not a "fancy" place, or high rise---no big waterfalls and lava and flower covered mega pool. Just a nice, comfortable, relaxing little pool. Great for visiting with other travelers. Cottage very nicely appointed. Everything we needed. We had a two bedroom...

Very much enjoyed my stay here. Comfortable and spacious condos (although decor and appliances are a bit 90s). Bed super comfortable. Friendly staff. Great location but google maps sends you to the wrong place- management should fix this as I arrived late at night. Thanks for having bikes available for rental as this was a very enjoyable activity.

We have been there twice and have enjoyed our stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The condos were always clean. Being in Princeville, they have a quite a few restaurants and shops to visit while you are there.

This place is really sweet... quiet, comfortable, large accommodations, great amenities for timeshares. If you plan on staying on north shore, this is a great location. It's only about 10 minutes from Hanalei, a bit far from south shore if you have activities planned down there. Highlights: 1. Large accommodations, updated looking kitchen, 2. Beautiful grounds and location, 3. bike...

My husband and I spent Christmas 2016 and 2017 New Years in Kauia - our first trip to Hawaii, and had an incredible cottage at Makai Club - it was huge, well appointed, clean and surrounded by lush, tropical greenery. We hadn't thought we'd spend much time at the cottage, but it was so comfortable, it was a welcome respite...

Our experience here was disappointing. We were lured in by the seemingly terrific advertised price and location. The value seemed great...online. But, upon arrival we quickly found the combination of the mediocre facilities, undelivered services, and the disinterested off-island management, leaving us sorely disappointed. With so many wonderful options nearby, we will not return here.
