The day we arrived at the Makai Club, we were exhausted after traveling 5373 miles. We were greeted in the office by very friendly smiling faces and an "Aloha". Check in was a breeze, and seeing how tired we were they got us off to our condo in no time at all,

The next morning they had an informative meeting at the pool. I was a little nervous after being at some places that try to force timeshare sales on you while you're on vacation. That didn't happen.
Instead, a group of us were met by smiling faces (staff & guests) who provided information on activities on the Island. They had different guests from some of the activities on hand. Again, no pressure at all. We decided to do some of the activities and all we had to to was tell the Makai Club staff which ones we wanted to do, and they set everything up for us. Flawless.

Throughout the stay the staff was there if you needed something, and left you alone to enjoy your vacation if you didn't. An amazing stay...MAHALO Makai Club Staff!

Room Tip: Not really sure for helpful hints in choosing a good room. We were on the 2nd floor, had a beautiful...

If you are looking for perfectly located condo in Princeville for a reasonable price this is your place. Lovely garden views and a wonderful staff. The true feeling of aloha permeates all the employees. Loved staying there and will go back.

My husband and I took this opportunity for a week away to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We enjoyed the clean, quiet, comfortable accommodations and grounds very much (unit 710). The unit was well maintained and had good appliances, etc. We appreciated that it was a very private setting since our condo patio faced to the wooded area which we gave us quiet nature as well as friendly birds to enjoy. Although quiet and private we were very close to activities and had no problem driving to activities, shopping and resources nearby. We would welcome the opportunity to return to the Makai Club anytime!

Room Tip: It was nice to have a room that looked out to a private, wooded view.

We stayed for three days last week, our main objective was to enjoy the island and also to hike the Kalaulau trail. We were prevented from hiking by the rain the first two days, and we thought it would be impossible to do it on the third day as we were checking out. Talking with the women (can't remember names, sorry) at the desk, they helped arrange a scenario where we could get a hospitality shower after our hike and quite frankly went out of their way to help us work through an item on our bucket list. Without their kindness we could not have done it.

The property is not the Ritz, but our condo was perfectly adequate, has a great location, I would heartily recommend this property to anyone. We would return in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had a top floor, it was very nice. We did not experience the restaurant or the fitness center, t...

We stayed in unit 704. Have to climb 3 sets of short steps, not bad at all, but might be challenging if cant climb stairs. Unit was close to pool and office. Back porch offered a beautiful view of the mountains and a place to eat, even in the rain. The grounds are well cared for. The staff were very attentive. Jessica was very helpful and accommodating. Helped us arrange activities so we could enjoy a relaxing vacation. Going to meet and greet was helpful for first timers to get to know the island and plan ( or not plan) activities. Also, reception office staff informative, very pleasant and professional. Had a perfect vacation. On the quieter side of the island, but close to the charming town of Hanalei. This side of the island gets more rain, but it clears up pretty quick. We cooked almost all our meals, mostly had lunches out, which helped keep costs down. The office has discount card to local supermarket. Be sure to hit local public markets for all your fruits and vegetables. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Recommend upper level room, might be a little quiter

Mary 84446,

We are grateful for your kind words about our resort. The view from the uppper units is wonderful, but if stairs are an issue, it is important to request a lower unit. We are glad that you enjoyed our beautiful island and hope that you will be back soon to visit us!

Happy Vacationing!

Great 'cottages', I stay in a 2 bedroom 1800 sq foot building with 2 large bedrooms and a fold out couch in the living room. there is free wi-fi, laundry in the cottage units.I stay along the golf course (404, 403, and 405) and there is always great animal watching while sitting on the deck. The pool area offers 2 full size gas grills. In a great location, near Princeville, easy to get to Kuhio Highway.

Room Tip: 2 bedrooms cottages will sleep 6 comfortably. I love the ones in the 400's that are on the golf...
