Great place to enjoy

Posted 15-Oct-2015 on Orbitz
Problem was lack of family friendly activity with little kids and the area, while not run-down, is not lively.

Pros: 環境は非常に気に入っています。
Cons: 部屋により設備が多少違うことは了解していますが、さすがにハワイでエアコンがないのは辛いかと思います。事前にエアコンの有無を知らせていただけたらと思いました。
Location: ワイキキと比べてしまうとびっくりするほど田舎ですが、静かで自然を好む方には良いかと思います。リフェ空港から車で40分ほど、近くにショッピングセンターが一つしかありませんので、洒落たものは皆無です。ゴルフ場は車で5分ほど。

Superb location - Unit needed upgrades

Posted 21-Apr-2015
Pros: Location is superb. Request ocean view. We originally had unit closest to road and chose to upgrade to ocean view. Good move.
Cons: Condition of unit was not great. Cabinets in need of upgrade. Some of the units were being remodeled which would increase rates.
Location: Near St Regis, beaches, 5 min to good grocery store, 15 min to Hanalei and north coast beaches. Zip line, snorkel, boogie bd'ing all close.
The location can't be beat. Cliffside, walkout units looking down to the ocean, turtles feeding, view of Hanalei Bay and north coast, sunsets, etc. Quiet, birds, paved path to private beach hard to find in this area. Beach, a mix of volcanic black rock and sand, is actually nicer than the St Regis one, which is public. Very good restaurant on site.

Not actually a hotel or called the "Castle"

Posted 12-Feb-2015
Pros: Good location, private
Cons: Congeniality of the staff, appropriate signage, more parking
Location: Mostly outdoor activities: golf, hiking, beach going, surfing
So, if you're looking for a condo rental with (extremely) spotty wifi, cool breezes and a (mainly) quiet atmosphere, this is a good place for you. This place is not actually called the "Castle," and you will not find this name on any sign. Rather, "Pali Ke Kua" is the name you'll see on the signs. The first building on the right is where the office is, which is also not obvious. Because of the spotty wifi, their computer may not communicate with your credit card company, then they'll suggest your card isn't working (I called my company and there were no declines on my card, but the woman made me feel like a delinquent). The unit itself was comfortable and spacious, and tended to be very quiet other than occasional early morning groundskeeping. There is no air conditioning, which is mostly ok due to strong breezes, though the upstairs was a bit too warm at times. There is also an unpublished $125-150 cleaning fee. There's a private beach with a very steep path to it which can make you feel like you're on a private island. We enjoyed our time in the area, but if we return, we'll stay somewhere else, as the headaches just weren't worth it.

Condo not a hotel

Posted 23-Dec-2014 on Orbitz
The location and view were spectacular. The condo was nicely equipped. It could use some updating but was certainly more than adequate for our needs and was affordable. There is no signage for the Castle at Princeville which makes it extremely difficult to find. Much driving around. Please be aware this is not a serviced hotel. It is a Condominium with no service.

Great Views of Honalea Bay

Posted 27-Nov-2014 on Hotels
What a great place to stay. The view of the lanai was spectacular. We could see all of Honalea Bay and a beautiful sunset every night. I would definitely go back and stay for a longer time. Had a hard time finding the place initially because the name had change from Castle to Hali Kae (I believe that was the name). They had merged the two condo units. Good thing we had the address. Other than that the place was great@!

Härlig lägenhet med fantastigt läge och stora ytor

Posted 03-Nov-2014
Privata lägenheter som hyrs ut via Castel resort, och har olika möblering beroende på ägare. Vår hade allt man behövde, inklusive tvättmaskin o torktumlare. Egen access till beach.

Good stay. Could have been cleaner. Patio furniture had layers of dirt and all the cabinetry was sticky. Great staff though.
