    We love the Westin Princeville and continue to go back! It is great for families and wonderful if you like to cook while on vacation. It is very clean, the staff is super helpful and friendly. The amenities are wonderful. It truly was like a home away from home.

    The staff here definitely exemplified the Aloha ways. Genuinely courteous and kind people working here. But the facility have shown its age. We're Westin owners and have visited Westin Princeville about 4 times now. We've also stayed at many other Westin/Marriott properties and coming back here in 2019 left us a bit sad & disappointed. I'd preferred to not post this publicly but the survey won't let me submit without writing one.

    This Westin is not a beach hotel. It does have beach access by walking down a trail to the ocean or by going to what was the St.Regis down the road. It’s been renamed but you can still go there for good beach service and fantastic views of Hanalei Bay. Pool service was very weak in the past. This July it was much better. Reasonable this time. It's difficult to find shade at the pool. Worst I can remember. There are no portable umbrellas, just stationary grass topped ones. And not many of those. And they are always taken. We rented a Cabana one day, and that was great for the 7 of us. We could swim, crawl back into our chairs and sip on drinks until the next time we swam. We decided from now on, we would rent one of them when we want to hang out at pool. But the grounds are remarkable due to the huge variety of plants, flowers and trees. The wide expanse of grassy grounds that all lead to views from the cliff of the ocean. There are 6 different grilling locations on site. Plenty of people utilize them, but in 3 trips here, I have yet to see much trouble in finding an open grill. Grocery store is close, which helps with stocking the kitchen and buying meat. Love the Princeville area. It's a peaceful resort, that is great for hanging out in the evenings after a day of exploring the island. On Tuesday night, my 9 year old and I, went to the lawn movie, that they set up weekly. Always a kid friendly movie. It’s amazing how many stars you can see, when laying on a yard on a quiet island in the middle of the Pacific. Really stunning.

    Great getaway in Kauai

    If you want rest, relaxation and calmness go to the Westin Ocean Villas in Princeville, Kauai! You have everything on property from gas grills, pools, exercise room, spa services, bar and restaurants. I highly recommend it for couples or families. It sits up on a cliff side overlooking the ocean with spectacular views. The villas are stocked well, clean and very comfortable. The washer and dryer are key if your a hiker or do outdoor activities as you can wash your clothes after a long in the sun, sand or mud.

    Not feeling the love as Marriott members

    The resort is very much oriented towards timeshare owners. Owners get first day complimentary valet parking, and Marriott members, even platinum, get nothing for free. No early check in or check out. Staff is more interested in getting people to buy timeshare. Not a problem per se, just an observation. There is no beach on the resort. We didn’t find it a big problem as there are a couple beaches that are close by, such as the hideaway beach, anini beach, and the beach on the Princeville Resort. Self parking is easy and there are lots adjacent to different buildings and we are probably 2 min walk from parking. Pools are nice and ground is pretty. The Princeville market on premise is a little market that sells some basic groceries, such as meat, vegetables, breakfast wraps, sandwiches, and Starbucks coffee. Since breakfast at the restaurant on premise is pricy, we found the market an economic option. I didn’t realize how much I love having washer and dryer in the room until I have it at the Westin Princeville. This is a life saver in Kauai’s humid climate.
