Our trip was going to be 5 days at Hanalei Bay Resort and then 5 days at SeaLodge. Our unit in SeaLodge required repair so we were offered this unit 2 days before we left for Hawaii. We had stayed the first 5 days at Hanalei Bay Resort so this was a bit of a step down but Ahh Aloha,...

We stayed in a 2 bd,2 bath condo right on the bluff. You have a bit of a drive to either the north shore or down to Poipu. Not a lot of stuff to do near the development. We drove to Hanalei Beach places to eat and a huge beach but in winter big waves. We then drove to Ke'e...

There are two properties here Ali'i I & II, this review is for Ali'i II. There is a difference. We had a 2 bedroom unit that was beautiful to look at, hard wood floors through out and carpeted bedrooms. The kitchen has updated appliances and we had a brand new dishwasher installed while we were there. We went out for...

We were awestruck when we arrived on Kauai. Then we made our way to our reservations for the week. The view was awesome. I loved going to sleep each night to the sound of the ocean. Then waking up to the beautiful view and surroundings. We enjoyed setting on the lanai each morning and evening. The condo was very nice....

Stayed for a week and had a great orientation and recommendations. Rooms where updated, pool clean and low key staff. Close to walk to several dining options Hope I made the staff happy with most of a bottle of Knob Creek left over. Excellent resort and we will book again.

My family and I stayed here recently for the Christmas and New Year's holiday in a 2BR/2BA condo that we found on VRBO. We stayed in Building 4 on the top floor #303. To say the least, the location is drop dead gorgeous. While sitting in the condo, you feel as if you're actually sitting on top of the ocean,...

We recently stayed at our home resort, (Alli Kai II) for the first time in many years, and were thrilled with the transformation of our unit after the remodel. The upgrades were all beautiful and we didn't lack for anything. We were on the second floor and had an amazing view of both the ocean and the lush gardens and...

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...

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....
