This type of resort works for me, my husband and 9yo son. We like a more quiet, private and low-key setting and the Hanalei Colony Resort is the perfect place. We stayed in an upper ocean view unit which is the only way to go. We were able to have our meals on the balcony very close to the ocean.... More

We stayed there only for one night before leaving for Kalalau. Although we had garden view room from the terrace we had beautiful view on the ocean. Particularly useful to us was ability to leave the car on hotel parking and store valuables in the office during our stay at Kalalau. We read stories about frequent thefts from Kalalau Trailhead...

Wonderful location on Kauai's North Shore. Possibly the most dramatic view of the ocean you will ever see. It is the view that keeps us coming back. It's not a hotel it is a condo, it is old, built in 1969 I think. We actually call it The Dump, the weather can be really bad, especially in the winter. Noises... More

We reserved an ocean view unit. We were in K1 with an open view of waves and palm trees from the living room, despite that the unit opened to the garden. Steps from the beach access & could hear crashing waves & swaying palm fronds- nice! The unit itself was large with two baths and a seperate area with two... More

These condos are wonderfully located next to a beach and close to the Kalalau trail which is a definite must do. The condos are simple, clean, and when you open the double doors you can hear the sounds of the ocean. The epitome of island life. The staff is helpful and friendly. This is not a luxury resort, but it... More

We love being close to the ocean. We booked a premium ocean view two bedroom suite but the unit we got, should be called "garden/ocean view"!!! We were rather looking into the garden area than having an unspoiled look at the ocean. Very disappointing, also if you look at the price you pay for this! We asked to change us... More

We stayed in a premier ocean view room on the first floor and I would have to say that it was definitely worth the extra money. We woke up each day and went to sleep each evening with the most amazing ocean view and sounds of the waves crashing. We had our tea/coffee on the lanai each morning and we... More

This resort lives up to its motto of "unplugged, unspoiled, unforgettable". The location is beautiful, the condo's are privately owned so I imagine they are all have slightly different decor etc. We stayed in a first floor condo with a balcony with sea views. It was spacious and beautifully furnished with cane furniture and colorful cushions and covers. There is... More

We stayed here and attended a wedding at the resort. The restaurant is very good if not a bit expensive, but the secluded surroundings make the experience second to none. The resort is called the Hanalei colony resort but really the resort is as far north-west of Hanalei proper as possible, nestled right up to Haena. The pool is family... More

My husband and I found Hanalei Colony Resort online and booked it last minute. I was leery as I did not have the time to read much about it, but after speaking to the hotel about their fall specials for ocean view units, we booked. We arrived the next afternoon. The staff was very nice. The place was PERFECT! We... More
