We found that this was an older vacation resort that we found using Trading Places. The unit was on the first floor but it does have units with ocean views, now that we know. The unit had all the conveniences we would expect and one building was being renovated at the time of our stay, but not a problem for...

Aloha from The Cliffs, Mahalo for your kind words and we're pleased to know our resort met your expectations. Yes, we are 1/2 way through renovating the rooms in building one and are looking forward to getting them back on-line here shortly. We are doing the same to our tennis courts in 2 months and a property-wide solar installation is...

This resort is older as so many here are. The room had been remodeled and was mostly clean with the exception of stains on the carpet in Master bedroom. Beware, this resort has a 'resort fee' of $80.00 that neither they or Interval tell you about and a tax rate if $4.98/day. We arrived on Thursday evening and were assigned...

Aloha from The Cliffs, Mahalo for your comments and views of our resort. We take great pride in our facility and appreciate your feedback. Regarding the "$80 Resort Fee", that information is passed on to II, your booking source" and is clearly stated in the confirmation info you should have received from II. If you did not, I would appreciate...

We stayed in #5106 and it was very nice. The condo has everything you need there, close to the beach and shopping, and short walk to spectacular ocean vista. We could see the ocean from the condo lanai and saw whales every day. We played the golf courses there, also extremely nice. The staff and amenities we're excellant! Good price,...

We traded a time share through Interval Int. and came up with the Cliffs resort. We love Hawaii but had never been to Kauai so we decided to give it a try right after the 1st of the year (Jan 2 to the 9th). Our plane was 5 hours late so instead of having a nice daylight drive from Lihue...

I have been coming here for over 20 years now and they are simply the best in town. The maintenance on the grounds is always wonderful and the staff is the friendliest group I have ever dealt with. I love this place and ONLY stay here when I come to Kauai.

We stayed at the Cliffs Club from December 28, 2014 thru Jan 4, 2015 and booked it through our RCI exchange. I am so happy we were able to snag a week at the Cliffs Club. It is a beautiful resort, that sits right on the cliffs with a beautiful view of the ocean below. We saw humpback whales swim...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and could not have been more pleased with our accommodations. We had a 1 bdr.

All necessary amenities were provided and numerous diversions such as basketball and tennis courts and a workout room by the pool....

Aloha and Mahalo for your kind words. I'm pleased to hear our property and staff met your expectations. As for the lack of a heated pool, our pools are, in fact, heated; however it is a new heat pump system and we're still working on getting the temperatures and settings right. Obviously we still have some work to do. Thanks...

Total package. On property amenities are superior, staff is friendly, units are clean and updated, location is absolutely beautiful. Staying here is always a pleasure.

We stayed at the Cliffs during a quick 3 day trip to Princeville. We were in building 6 and had an ok garden/tennis court view. While it won't win any awards for architectural or interior design and had a bit of a cookie cutter feel, the furnishings were all in good condition and comfortable, including the one king bed.

We booked last minute and moved across the island. The Cliffs were our 3rd and final property for the week. We were pleasantly surprised with our experience. It was comparable to the Westin property and at a reduced price. We will rebook and request buildings 8 or 9 for a full ocean view. Excellent experience. Perfect for large families (spacious...
