We were invited to stay here with friends who have a WorldMark time share. We were in the spare bedroom (twin beds) that barely fit in the room. The master bedroom and bathroom was HUGE in comparison. It was nice to have a washer/dryer in the unit but was actually outside the master bathroom which was a little odd for us as the invited guest to do their laundry. What I missed most was not being close to the ocean. Tried walking to see the water but had to stop because you can not walk across the golf course. Not recommending it if this is your first time to Kauai. This was our fifth so it really wasn't that important.
We had stayed at this same resort some4 years ago. Now the renovating is complete and it is an excellent resort. The accommodations are great and the staff is very friendly. I ended up in the hospital during this trip and the staff even sent me “goodies” to get well. That was exceptional on their part
Our kitchen was not well equipped - lack of proper cooking pots and pans, no dish drainer, not enough mixing or serving dishes to make a normal dinner. The windows were covered with some kind of plastic film so we could not see out. The doors, windows and screens were all in disrepair and would hardly open without a struggle. The blinds were broken in the kitchen. This unit was not well cared nor properly maintained.
Our room was just like a bedroom with a microwave and fridge. No privacy because walls are paper thin. This whole island is way to expensive to really enjoy it unless you’re rich. The weather is not great here either. It’s cold and windy so I didn’t even want to go anywhere.
Overall a good stay. Recently renovated but still feels a bit run down and dated—old appliances, dirty floors, awkward outlets, hollow core doors, old fixtures and dismal lighting. But considering the price, location and size of the units there is little to complain about. The Westin which is next door is 2-3 times the price. I also much prefer staying on the Northside of the island as it is much prettier and has nicer beaches. If you decide to book here are some pointers: Call ahead and ask for a top floor unit-which. Has the vaulted ceilings and is quieter. Also there are a few buildings that face the ocean, and a few that face the mountains-however the Mountain View comes with some street noise. Consider grocery shopping in Lihue at Costco before you drive up. Otherwise use the grocery store in Hanalei as both are much better than the one in Princeville. When you checkin ask the front desk to borrow beach equipment as they only have so many to loan out. It is possible to hike down to Willey Beach/Anini Beach by taking the dirt path to the right of the Westin’s entrance. It will be very muddy so grab one of the hiking sticks people leave at the overlook before you head down. Better yet head toward the old St Regis to Hideaway Beach which is even more of a challenge to get to but truly one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The inconspicuous dirt path to the beach is between the 8 car lot and the tennis courts just before you get to the Princeville Inn. Wear sturdy shoes as part of the path has eroded and you are repelling down with ropes for much of the trail.
Resort is acceptable however not near majority if hiking trails. Wifi is very slow unless you spend addition money to upgrade. Hot tub was not working on multiple occasions during our stay. Staff were easy to deal with
The resort was lovely - view were beautiful and amenities in line with expectation for a resort of this level. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment - it was spacious, comfortable and well appointed -everything we needed was provided including kitchen items. Additionally, we found the staff to be both friendly and helpful. There were a bunch of activities to provide additional information about the area and culture - we didnt participate, but they could have been a helpful addition to our trip. Despite very comfortable accommodations, sleep was lacking on this vacation. The apartment didn't have AC, which was fine because nighttime temps were comfortable enough for sleeping - but it meant we had to leave the windows open. Roosters began crowing loudly directly outside our bedroom at about 3:30 every morning. Even my husband (a pretty heavy sleeper) was awoken by the roosters every night we were there. This minor detail had a significant impact on our vacation. We found the majority of our chosen activities took place in the middle or south side of the island (an hour drive away) - this may be because many of the north-side options were washed away due to large flooding storms earlier in the year. Although Princeville is BEAUTIFUL, it probably wasnt ideal for our purposes at this point in time.
Was moved from lower level parking lot view to second level golf course/ ocean view. Clean, comfortable beds and pillows, grilled at the pool side grill twice, well stocked units, hot tub, pool was too cool for me. Vikki is wonderful concierge and made our trip amazing, really listened to us and all her suggestions spot on for us. Kirsten and Abel also very nice. Parking was an issue a couple nights. Maintenance staff also very friendly. Beautiful place and great people. Very quiet and relaxing.
Ka'eo Kai is a great property. We traded in through RCI two years ago and couldn't wait to return. The location on the North Shore is the best on the island, but still within driving distance to all of the great spots on Kauai. Note that there have been recent rains and floods that prevent you from heading further north than Hanalei. We went with our two small children. The two bedroom unit (17B) was perfect and even had a little view of the ocean. Although they say one of the bedrooms has two twin beds, they are actually two full beds. The wraparound porch is wonderful and the units are appointed with all of the necessary amenities. The resort staff is mostly accommodating. They might ask you to attend a timeshare update/presentation for reduced excursion tickets. We went, and it wasn't too bad. Fairly low pressure compared to others. If you are a golfer, this resort is right on the Makai golf course and you can get discounted rounds and rentals with a card from your concierge. There is a shopping center about a mile away, so you can get groceries and cook your meals in the unit. Be sure to visit Secret Beach and Anini Beach from the trailhead; a little hike with some steep spots, but doable, as long as you take your time. We are already planning our next trip there.
We just returned from a week in Kauai and want to go back as soon as possible. The Wyndham Ka 'Eo Kai was perfect for our family. There were six total. Four adults and two kids both 12 years old. We had the two bedroom two bath upper unit. The unit was spacious and so nice. The kitchen had everything we needed to be able to make breakfasts. We never had dinner at the resort but there are BBQ's all around the property so it would be very easy to get a nice dinner cooked for your group. These units do not have A/C but the breezes were strong enough during the day and it cooled off at night so it wasn't a big deal. They provide fans to place around the condo so that helped too. We loved the wrap around lanai to enjoy our coffee in the mornings and cocktails in the afternoon. The beds were very comfortable and having a washer dryer in our unit made all the difference. The staff was so helpful and kind. We booked all our excursions from Nathaniel at the tour desk. He was great! They also have movies to check out and tons of board games. The weather for us was amazing so we weren't in the condo too much so we didn't utilize the games or movies, but it's a nice feature to have. The pool is "sun heated"... so it can be a bit chilly but you do get used to it. The grounds are so beautiful! We didn't partake in any of the resort activities but they had something going on all the time. We were out exploring the island. The resort is very quiet and peaceful. We loved that! Princeville Center is a couple miles away where you an get groceries at Foodland and they also have a restaurant, Ace hardware and an amazing ice cream parlor! Staying in the north part of the island was truly magical. The views are so spectacular that they don't seem real. It's almost like a dream. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend to our friends!
