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.

Great North Shore Hotel

the hotel was immaculate with a palatial room and a great ocean view. The staff was great (save for one unpleasant concierge). The North shore is colder and rainier but close to Hanalei and the hiking trails into the Na Pali coast. This is a less touristy area which might not appeal to all visitors but for seclusion or outdoor activities it is unrivaled.

Remote getaway

The location was beautiful however a 45 minute drive from the hotel and the main town area. It was peaceful and scenic. I enjoyed the resort because the crowd that stays at time shares is more laid back and reserved. The hotel market and shops in the area were very pricey but to be expected.

The helicopter ride is breath taking. Inexpensive barge ride in Ferns Grotto....well worth the money. Opeaka falls was a beautiful view and a nice scenic drive - free :), Botanical Gardens and the Light house are nice, low key excursions.

Room with a view

The grounds were very nicely laid out. Loved the room, clean, airy, only thing that would have made it better would have been a view of the ocean.

terrible internet access, great hotel

The only real problem that we had was the internet connection in our room. They sent us three different people to try and fix it, but nothing worked. It was a pretty frustrating situation because the only way we could get internet access was by going into the main lobby - who wants to do that?! have everyone seeing what you're doing online. We thought maybe they'd at least move us to another room, considering the fact that none of their techs/engineers could solve the problem for us, but it never happened the entire WEEK we were there. Basically, everyone just gave us the run around and the problem was never resolved. On the other hand, the hotel is beautifully located and they have tons of grills for you to use. There are three pools, but the main gets crowded and there aren't enough beach chairs around it for everyone. We had to spend most of our time at one of the smaller pools because of this. Make sure you go to their sister resort, the St. Regis. It has a beautiful beach and a fantastic outlook to the ocean on the way. Take advantage of the hotel's shuttle! They can take you anywhere in the Princeville area with your request.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

There's only one main shopping center in Princeville. Get your food at Foodland!!! Don't waste money at the hotel because food there is ridiculously priced. Also, the hotel is quite far from any real culture/taste of life on the island. You'll have to drive at least 15 minutes to get to another part of the island that has more dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

Wonderful Vacation!

We were tremendously pleased with the Westin and thought it had the perfect balance of resort amenities with all the condo convenience. The weather was iffy - not the resort's fault of course, but that's part of the North Shore experience. The staff was very friendly. Our only complaint was the restaurant - priced for a nicer dining experience, but with overall rather mediocre food. Also, items in the market are very pricey - you pay for the convenience of not having to go anywhere. But the poolside bar fare was tasty and priced about the same you'd find anywhere. The grounds are beautifully kept and very comfortable. The room had everything we needed. The resort is clearly family friendly, but we'd left the kids at home and were still completely happy. We would happily, happily stay there again.

Great Stay on the North Shore

Autumn helped us tremendously prior to arrival and set us up with great adventures. Went hiking, kayaking, horseback riding and ziplining, all within 15 minutes of the hotel. Great pool and rooms are wonderful with washer/dryer, coffee makers, fridge and basically all needed items in the kitchen to stay in if you want. Only downside...no great beach to go to at the hotel. Can use free transit over to Regis, or walk down a very steep trail outside of the hotel. Best bet is to drive into Hanalei and hang out in the bay there!

nice vacation spot

The hotel was very nice. The only real issue we had was that the sheets were extremely uncomfortable. We basically did not have a comfy night...not one!

Ultimate Relax

It was so relaxing. We had a beautiful one bedroom villa. The rooms are gorgeous with a massive bathroom and a very well equipped kitchen. We could park our car right outside our room, making it easy to go on day trips around the island. The gym was up to date, making it easy to work off the great food eaten at dinner in the Nanea Restaurant, which is very reasonably priced. Must have the 5 course tasting dinner with wine paired. One week was not enough!
