U.S. News Review

"No beach"words that could horrify any vacationer to Hawaii. But at The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas, you shouldn't worry: Guests of this Westin property can access St. Regis' stellar sands via a complimentary shuttle ride. And there is enough at The Westin Princeville to keep you occupied: The resort grounds encompass four pools, a tennis club and a fitness center, and staying here will put you within easy reach of the fairways at the Po'ipu Bay Golf Course. Still, not all travelers are impressed by The Westin. Although accommodations here are spacious (with enough room to easily accommodate a family and amenities such as whirlpool baths, kitchens, flat-screen TVs and Bose stereos) previous guests say that the resort is lacking when it comes to customer service. The high room rates were another point of contention, with visitors saying that, although the location is priceless, there are other resorts in the area that can provide a better experience. Although, members of the Starwood Preferred Guest program won't want to rule this Westin out, as they can earn and use points here.
