How to Get There
Amazing place to stay. The beach and pool areas were simply beautiful. The coconut French toast is amazing and addictive. Live music every night. Everyone had smiles.
Helpful tips: Plan to rent a car to get there, it is on the NE part of the island. It is a $130 taxi ride from the airport. the speed limit on the roads is generally from 35-40 so remember you are there to relax. It is hard to get lost as there are only a few main roads If you plan to eat at the hotel expect to pay double. Breakfast buffet was $43 per person.
We stayed at the Princeville resort on Jan. 26-27th for part of our 20th anniversary. While we were given an upgraded room, when we made the reservation we were told as part of the Kamaania special was waving the resort fee. However, at time of check out, they said we had to talk with the reservations dept. which I did and was told I would get a call back from a supervisor. Nothing...waited a couple of days called back and was pushed to 3-4 different representatives and I was finally told to leave voice mail for a supervisor and again promised a call back some day. 5 days later nothing. We were also told valet was complementary, but we were charge $35 on that which is not a big deal, but if I had know, I might not have been tipping as heavy. Other than, poor communication the resort felt a little dated and tired. Staff was pretty helpful, but there were a couple of times we had to follow up on things that were to be delivered to our room. Set your expectations a little lower and you'll be fine.
A bit run down. The room was pleasant but I also feel you are not 8n your room that much. The beach and grounds are incredible. The property site is second to none. I feel it is worth the visit but prices are high.
We visited Kauai a few years ago and fell in love with the island, the North Shore in particular. The St Regis was our homebase. The location is amazing and the team was wonderful. It was an experience we wanted to have again. We booked our trip to come back before the change in ownership and were worried after the reviews.
I’m pleased to say there was no reason to worry... we checked earlier today and could not be more pleased with the Princeville resort team. From our valet to the reception staff to our bellman to the pool staff they were all very welcoming... in a genuine way. The service was attentive & kind without being pretentious.
The hotel is a bit dated but no different then when st regis owned the hotel. We are here for not here for a modern building. We are here for the gorgeous location and are pleased with the Princeville team.
We are excited to spend a week here in paradise at the Princeville Resort.
For those considering cancelling a trip, don’t! Unless of course you are seeking a brand new building over a gorgeous destination. If that’s your style go to Vegas...
I look forward to sharing more detial
This was a lovely experience from start to finish, and I have no hesitation to recommend this property. My husband and I booked a stay here using Marriott Rewards points before the changeover of ownership. I had stayed at the property before, but he had not. Based on the initial reviews we were seeing on Trip Advisor and Yelp after the switch, we were concerned, but I am very pleased to report our experience did not match those who have had recent negative experiences.
About a week before we arrived, we received an email from the new management, advising that although the property is no longer a Marriott/SPG property, they would still be pleased to give us a room upgrade at check-in if one were available. When we arrived, we were indeed upgraded to a full ocean view room, with a breathtaking view of the beach and the bay. We could open our window and listen to the waves roll in all night (and, less delightfully, the roosters crowing first thing in the morning, but what are you going to do; roosters are gonna rooster).
The staff is, to a person, outstanding. Every employee encounter, from the valet desk to the check-in staff to the bellhop to the housekeeping attendants to the poolside and wait staff, have been friendly, solicitous, and eager to please. They have taken an interest in us, asking where we're from and about our daily plans, and when they have seen us later, they have asked follow-up questions reflecting that they were listening and wanted to know if we were having a good time.
In terms of amenities, we have made use of the spa (couples massage), the main restaurant (breakfast), room service, and the cabanas. The spa is beautiful and the massage was very relaxing. Breakfast was fine, but resort pricey. I highly recommend the cabana experience; very relaxing, unbeatable views, and great service all day. We liked it so much we booked a second day. Room service was fine, but nothing special, although the waiter who delivered our food was very service-oriented and eager to please.
I saw several very negative reviews regarding the condition of the property. I respectfully disagree. It has been awhile since the property was updated, and I know the new owners have a major renovation planned, but the property remains in good repair. We did not see any visible signs of wear and tear along the lines described in that review. Perhaps the new ownership has already begun improvements. All I can say is the resort we experienced is well-maintained and lovely, and we look forward to coming back and staying here again when the renovations are complete.
