If you want conveniently located lodgings from with to see all of Kauai, Hanalei Colony Resort is not for you. If you want to be immersed in the rugged, lush beauty of the North Shore of Kauai and don't mind a 10 minute drive into town, then you will love it here. We certainly did. We loved that three of...

If you love to camp outdoors, then you will love this place. If you cannot tolerate camping and need everything to be sparkling clean and new, as well as can't let got of modern day amenities, then this is not a place for you. Our unit seemed to be the last one to be updated. As we walked by the... More

We recently stayed for 5 nights with my husband and 9 year old daughter. We were in an ocean view room, 2nd floor. The unit was very spacious and clean. The views amazing! The kitchen was well stocked for anything you might need. The bathrooms were a bit rustic, but again, clean and no complaints. The king size bed was... More

My wife and stayed here with our teen age son and his friend. We had a garden view but were still able to see the ocean from our Lanai. The unit was simple but had everything we needed including a small kitchen that had all the pots, pans and utensils that we needed. They have two nice gas grills at... More

We loved this place. We stayed in an oceanfront unit on the ground floor. There's no a/c, but we did not need it in late June, because the tradewinds kept the place very cool, if a bit humid. The real-life white noise of the surf made for uninterrupted sleep despite all the windows staying open all the time. The beach... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. I was perfect for us. I like the fact that it wasn't a mega resort and you really got the feel of Kauai and the north shore. There was an nice ocean breeze every night so we slept with windows and door open -- no need for AC. The rooms itself... More

We spent 2 weeks here and we want to go back! We did our research, and, while all the resorts sound fabulous, we are not really resort people. We also ended up focusing on the North Shore, just because it seemed (and is) quieter and more laid back than other areas of Kauai. We searched through listings on VRBO, then... More

The very first impression/ interaction with the place should have steered us clear. But the website is a powerful thing and a good photographer goes a long way. Stephanie, the person who booked us was very unpleasant to speak with. As soon as we told her we have a groupon voucher, she told me there is no availability for the... More

We spent 3 nights in an ocean view condo at Hanalei Colony Resort. From the moment we checked in we felt at home, the staff were super helpful, laid back and welcoming and offered itinerary suggestions. The condo itself was well equipped with full kitchen facilities and a beautiful view of the water and beach. Well ventilated by the cool... More

Kauai's only north shore beachfront resort is nestled on a gentle curve of white sand beach. These spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath condominiums with complete kitchens are magically serene and bounded by Kauai's untamed beauty. Gourmet restaurant, day spa, pool, hot tub and coffee shop are all located on the beautifully menicured grounds. Located at the gateway to the famous Na Pali coast, Hanalei Colony Resort is totally unspoiled, unplugged and unforgetable. ... more   less
