Excellent except for the head concierge

Posted Dec 3, 2013
Pros: Location, most of the staff were very nice.
Cons: Toilets don't flush very well. Other things as noted above. Avoid loud lawn care equipment, or at least minimize. Guy mowed same lawn 2x in 4 days
Location: Hike, snorkel, explore towns, shops, farmer's markets - tons to do in the area.
It was very good overall, but the concierge (the main one there, apparently) was NOT helpful and really extremely unpleasant. She was the most unpleasant people we've run into on several trips to Hawaii, and one of the most unpleasant in that position we've encountered in decades of international travel. She gave the distinct impression that it was all about selling us day trips, and she really didn't care whether or not we enjoyed the rest of the trip or not. Other people there were much more helpful and very pleasant, but she left a dark nasty stain on the entire trip for us. It was also very weird that the trips she sold us had very strange receipts that made no sense to anyone we asked, making us wonder if they were deliberately opaque. We could have gotten better rates and had a much nicer experience but NOT working with the concierge. It is not supposed to work that way. Normally, they negotiate a discounted rate with the day tours, keep part of the savings as commission and share a bit with the guests. Not here. The location of this place is very nice and the unit we had was pretty good, although there were a bunch of things that didn't work right - e.g: original key we got worked only slightly better than a hairpin for opening door. We called about that and got it replaced, but wanting to avoid the nasty concierge we didn't try to do anything about the other items (entry light out, screen door that would either stick or pop off rail entirely

Beautiful views. Very old and run down.

Posted Sep 27, 2013
The staff is great! The Cliffs are very quiet, mostly older people. I stayed in room 4202. It was a great size. Everything was clean. But the room itself was very, very, very run down. They really need to gut it and remodel it. I wouldn't stay there again, because it was really run down and personally that is kind of disgusting to me, but others may not mind it as much. The wallpaper is peeling and looks as though it has been reapplied multiple times. Everything is just really old. The TV is from 1980, and it even had a VCR to give you a better idea of how dated it truly was. The view from the deck was beautiful but you only get a good view if you stay in 4, 8, or 9. The other room blocks don't have a view. There is also a little trail you can walk down to get to the bottom of the cliff. I wouldn't go alone, but if you are with someone else it is worth it.

Excellent view!

Posted Jun 22, 2013
Pros: Great roomy condo, excellent view of the ocean and sunset, tranquility (most of the time), good grills, close to places and things we like to do.
Cons: The grills didn't work at the end of our stay.
Location: We liked to hang out in Hanalei, esp. the slack key concert was a wonderful experience. The beach at the "end of the road" was the best.
We were very pleased to stay in this unit where we had a terrific view of the sunset everyday from the balcony. We had a wonderful vacation and one week didn't seem to be long enough!

Very very nice condo

Posted May 3, 2013
Pros: Location, cleanliness, pool, gym etc...
Cons: Only issue we had was noisy chickens at 5am but.... That's everywhere in kauai
Location: We spent all of our time in Hanalei as we feel its the most beautiful and relaxing place in the world.
We stayed 8 nights in unit 4206 and it was awesome, very clean, nicely furnished and comfortable! We will definitely stay here again if it is available, best deal in princeville! This was our third trip to Kauai in four years and plan on another this year. I would recommend this condo for the price.

Clean Condo With A View

Posted Apr 3, 2013
Pros: Spaciousness, well equipped, decent view.
Cons: Tiny TV, no TV in the master bedroom, sofabed had crumbs underneath the mattress
Location: Location was as the property name implies, right on the Cliffs. There were lawn chairs and even a gazebo by the cliffside for whale watching.
Easy check-in process, clean interiors although some amenities are out of date - small TV, not HD, not a flatscreen. Remote control batteries were held in place with duct tape. No big deal since we weren't there to watch TV. Kitchen was well equipped with cookware, dinnerware, even nice full-size red wine glasses and martini glasses too. Bathrooms had ample supply of towels. The shutters in the master bedroom were off the rails, they were not usable at all. A minor inconvenience since it was rarely used. The property had only one place to dispose of garbage and recyclables which was a good walk from our complex. Nice view of the ocean from the kitchen balcony. Owners have binoculars available for whale watching. Overall very pleased with the condition of the unit and would stay there again.
