Looking for recommendations for a place to stay in the Princeville/Hanalei area for two nights.
We are thinking of flying in on a Thursday, two nights prior to our Saturday check in at the Point at Poipu. The idea is to have two days of relaxing on the North side, instead of doing road trips later in the week.
We are traveling with our 5 year, so any B&B's would be out.
The dates we are looking for are 8/13-8/15/2009

In checking with Expedia I found Marc Resorts at Princeville for $148.00 per night. There was also the Westin and the Wyhdham bali Hai.
Any suggestions on other resources for lodging would be greatly appreciated.

We've been home for two weeks and it's time to get everything ready for next summer:)

Thanks,
Al

The Westin is by far the nicest resort in Princeville, but it's expensive. Let me find the link to my Westin slide show and I will post it here.

The Shearwater is also lovely. For more ideas, check out the Kauai Reviews.

If you go to the Starwood Board and searchfor WPORV, you will find a ton of info. and more pictures.

Here is the WPORV website, too - http://www.starwoodvacationownership.com/westin_princeville_ocean_resort_villas/welcome.jsp

Do you want cheap or do you want ocean view?

For a non-timeshare stay, I would highly recommend the Hanalei Colony Resort. It won't be cheap, but what an experience it will be! They offer cottages right on the beach (they also have cottages just off the beach). It is located about halfway between Hanalei and Ke'e Beach, the end of the road. Overall, I would judge it to be the best North Shore experience offered because it will put you the closest to nature... right on the beach in quaint cottages (some, maybe all, have been recently remodeled).

For other great options with superior ocean views, there is the Princeville Hotel, the Hanalei Bay Resort and the Shearwater. There are others, but I have ruled out from my recommendations those that have lesser views, have lesser resort ammenities, or some non-timeshare options that I know nothing about.

I believe the Princeville Hotel is temporarily closed as it is being converted from a Sheriton/Westin property into a St. Regis property.
