Our stay at the Ali'i Kai condo was very nice. It was not a timeshare condo so it needed some updates but it was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay there! The kitchen was well stocked and everything worked great. No need to check in and our key was ready in the lock box when we arrived. Checking... More

Staff was friendly and cooperative. Facilities and amenities were excellent. The "introduction meeting" was not pressure-packed and they did not attempt to sell us a week at their resort. The only drawback that we found was the lack of A/C in the units. As with most places in Kauai, the trade-winds provide a comfortable breeze so windows are left open.... More

Hi. We exchanged to here from our st. Martiin oyster bay resort. This is very very nice. Excellent rooms, two bedrooms and full kitchen. Second floor with great view and nice ocean breezes to cool the rooms. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you need. I would come back

The upgraded units are superb. Was in this condo four years ago and they have made every possible upgrade one would be looking for. The grounds are immaculate. The staff are tremendous . I traded into this complex with a timeshare and would say it rates as one of the best.

The apartment we stayed in was beautifully presented. The complex is neat, quiet and well located for access to some beautiful cliff side beaches. The only negative is too much chlorine in the pool. It's also 5 minutes from Princeville shopping centre.
