The Cliffs at Princeville is a comfortable and inviting timeshare/hotel perched, as the name suggests, right on cliffs overlooking the Pacific…with a particularly gentle, laid-back vibe where it’s enough just to gather at sunset to enjoy each other’s company as you watch the sun sink below the horizon. Awarded numerous “eco-friendly” and “sustainable” laurels by the hospitality industry, the Cliffs supports the state-wide Mālama Hawai’i initiative, which helps tourists participate in hands-on, educational experiences that help the communities they visit, from beach cleanup to tree-planting to historic preservation and more.”  – Samantha Dunn, Southern California Newspaper Group
