We are timeshare owners and traded for this property. We were pleased with the spaciousness of the 1 bedroom plus loft - plenty of space for our family of 4. The furnishings were updated and lovely. The balconies were a treat, especially our views of the mountains with their abundant waterfalls after every rain. The location in Princeville is definitely...

Miserable. Hot and humid and there is no air in these 4.5 star units- deal breaker for us. Who wants to be hot and sweaty while trying to relax in a condo? Assumed that nice condos in Princeville would have air conditioning. Extremely disappointed that we didn't stay at a hotel.

This is our first time at The Cliffs and I was worried because not the best reviews. That being said, we were pleasantly surprised and liked the resort. We traded through interval so didn't expect a lot re room and view but we got a 1 br and loft with 2 baths and a decent ocean view. Very happy. The...

We really enjoyed our rental we got through Travelzoo for 5 nights at the Cliffs. The front desk staff was so friendly, we were able to rent DVDs of movies filmed on Kauai which was fun for the rainy afternoon we spent inside. The grounds are pretty with lawn chairs out on the actual cliffs with great views. They have...

I have stayed at The Cliffs 3 times now over the last 6 years and it is so awesome that I'm not sure I could stay in another condo in Kauai and be more happy. The location is beautiful and convenient to everything in the north shore including my favorite little town of Hanalei. The units have always been meticulously...

This is the only condo property I have stayed at in Hawaii that was difficult to leave. My kids didn't want to leave either!!! We really enjoyed our time at the Cliffs!!! This place is peaceful with wild Nenes running around the expansive backyard of our condo!! My boys loved playing tennis, basketball, and swimming in the pool. The location...

We really like the location and it's proximity to what we wanted to do while in Kauai. We had a one bedroom with a loft for us and our 4 kids. The unit was spacious and meticulously cleaned. There was nothing fancy about the decor but it was nice and very comfortable. We had a great view of the ocean...

We stayed here for a week through a timeshare exchange via Interval International. My husband and I had a one bedroom, two bathroom condo (with a pull out couch that could accommodate more guests if needed). We had a first-floor condo in building 7. The condo itself was a bit dated, especially compared to my in-laws' condo on the second...

We stayed here for the first part of our Kauai vacation. Great location and an informative activity center which gave us an overview of the island as well as local activities. Near to famous Hanalei Bay and local hotspots. This was a nice "home away from home"

We stayed at The Cliffs for a week in July, and what a great place to stay! Friendly, smile driven service combined with great location, great amenities. We couldn't have been more pleased. First of all, the location is great. Literally on the edge of cliffs, the view of the sunset is nothing short of amazing. Many people go out...
