North-shore villa resort offers room to move and sweeping vistas
Perched on a cliff, the 346-room Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas lies between the verdant green of the north shore's natural landscape and startling blue of the Pacific. The look and feel is upscale and modern with a nod to island style. Outside, neat lawns and expansive pool areas give way to vast, panoramic vistas of the pleated cliffs and mountains of Kauai. Spacious villas offer luxury, and nice touches include private lanais and Westin's notable Heavenly Bed. An on-site restaurant, markets and a casual poolside bar add convenience.
Highlights
  • Four pools, including one for children
  • Year-round Westin Kids Club for ages 5-12
  • Complimentary shuttle to Makai/Prince golf courses
  • Dine at Sheraton Kauai Resort in Poipu, charge back to your Westin Princeville villa
Location
Princeville is a 500-acre planned development on Kauai's north shore, between the towns of Hanalei and Kilauea, with resorts, vacation homes, dramatic cliffs, and several protected beaches. Once a coffee plantation, it's now one of Hawaii's top golf destinations, as Golf Digest named Prince Golf Course Hawaii's No. 1 course and Golf Week put it among America's Top 100 Modern Courses.

Features
Four heated pools are at the heart of on-site activities at the Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas. One pool is for children, complete with child-size slide.

Wonderful resort, excellent value.

We were very comfortable at the Westin Princeville condos. They are well located for the best beaches & the incredible Na Pali coastline. Tastefully furnished, clean, modern & everything you need in your room (kitchenette, washer/dryer, tv with cable, free internet, lanai, nice shower & jacuzzi tub). Resort feels higher end with a low key attitude. We stayed 9 nights & had plenty to see & do. Excellent service too - we had a blocked toilet that was fixed right away. The resort has nice swimming pools & is beautifully landscaped. Quality restaurant (Nanea) on site - though quite spendy. Feels very safe & mostly quiet (except for the roosters which are all over the island!)- not a place for loud partying. Very pleasant 2 mile walk to the beautiful beach at the more upscale Regis. Overall, this resort is an excellent value for the money. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Save money by eating in & buying groceries at the Safeway in Kapa'a (pick them up on your way up to the condo from the airport). Be sure to apply for a Safeway card at the customer service desk - takes a couple of minutes & saves you big bucks. Prices & selection is better than the Princeville Foodland.

Great place to stay, we'll go back

We had no expectations for our stay here but the ambiance, the service, pools and the north side of Kauai were wonderful. The units are very well appointed and the grounds are lovely. Having a small kitchen and great grills outside allowed us to grill fresh fish nightly which always appeals to us. Our sense is that are not too many good restaurants in this area. We loved the fact that this area is not real crowded and not too much traffic. Great fish market but supermarket is just adequate. We were looking for a very active vacations so we did 3 hikes and 2 kayaks trips. Concierge service at the hotel was very good answering our questions. We did our own research and bookings before we came but they were always there to answer any questions. Great place to stay. Also very green.

Try Powered Hang gliding. It was a blast and it was nice to have a great resort like the Westin to relax in after flying like a bird.

I would take a pass on this one.

While the staff at the hotel was freindly and effective, the property is a fractional ownership condo complex that is renting out unsold units somewhat like a hotel. We were offered a very small studio, ground level unit overlooking a parking area. "Garden View" was a bit of an exaggeration. There was a single restaurant on site which seemed limited for a Westin resort property. You will receive lots of encouragement to experience the sales pitch for FO of a condo during your stay! Conventional condominium rentals have offered better, more spacious value on previous trips to Hawaii. Be aware that there is no direct beach acess from the hotel...you must take a shuttle to the sister St Regis property, a mile or so away, for beach time.

Try Infigo, a new restaurant in the Princeville area. it is located in the Pali Ke Kua condo complex(in the clubhouse). The food was the best that we had in Kauai, imaginative and well prepared. The young chef and wait staff made our evening with them a very memorable event. References to slow service in other reviews is clearly relative. We found the pace and attentiveness to be ideal.

A week in paradise

Perfect!! We looked for a long time comparing different resorts/condos in the area before and decided on the Westin. Couldnt have asked for more bang for the buck. Impecably kept grounds and new spacious rooms(we got upgraded to a 1 bdrm suite) Brand new rooms! Everything you would need. Stayed @ another resort our last night cuz we missed our flight and it could not compete and it was in same price point. Quit looking, this is it!

Great hotel for families

The Westin was a wonderful, well maintained property. We stayed in a one bedroom with full kitchen, dining table and large bathroom. The bedroom has a king bed and a pull-out sofa. It easily accommodated our family of 4. There is a great children's pool with a small waterslide (appropriate for kids under 7), and several other larger pools. The staff was friendly, the grounds beautiful and the property in pristine condiion. We would happily stay here again.

Beautiful Setting

Great Hotel, pool, service. The grounds were very clean and employees were always around to help. Didn't really appreciate the fact that they wanted to charge an extra fee to park our car in their parking lot. A $9.00 fee for each night!!! Where do they expect their customers to park? Should be included in the room rate. Other than that, we loved it there...

Beautiful location

The hotel was just what we were looking for. We wanted a kitchen so we could do all of our own cooking as eating out in Hawaii is expensive. We also loved the location in relation to the beaches that we love our favaorite being Hanelei Bay which was only a couple of miles away. We enjoyed the quiet pool as we like the quiet without the noise of kids from the kiddie pool. All the grounds were meticulously kept and very well maintained. Loved the $1 cup of Starbucks coffee after 1PM each day at the hotel coffee shop. I would definitely put this up with one of our favorite vacations.
