This is an absolutely beautiful place. However, and this is a big HOWEVER, some of the "garden view" rooms would be more appropriately named "street view" rooms. The resort is set right on the main road that almost encircles Kauai. The road doesn't get a lot of traffic, but it gets enough, all night long. Add to that the trash/recycling... More

Wonderful place just past quiet Hanalei. We arrived in the evening and there were clear instructions for checking in after their office had closed. The location is conveniently close to Tunnels and Ke'e beaches, and still close enough to go into Hanalei for dinner. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

This place is the perfect hideaway for someone looking to get back in touch with life. You can't help but feel relaxed here and the rooms have everything you could need to make the stay a truly wonderful experience. We were a family of 4 with our mother-in -law visiting and everyone had a great time. Kids loved the pool,... More

Beautiful beach side location, nice accommodation, good pool, facilities and service, feels exclusive almost - what's not to like. They have a shuttle now to take you to different parts of the island, but I'd still recommend having a car. Glow in the dark Bocce ball set is a nice addition. Overall: It's not cheap, but fulfills the philosophy of... More

We are snobs and seek upscale perfection in our accomodations (yet at a reasonable price). We visited 4 islands during our trip and stayed in 5 different hotel/condo accommodations. Upon checking in at Hanalei Colony Resort, our first impression was that this place was dated and in need of updating and we were not excited about not having air conditioning... More

Loved our stay here! Although the price was a little higher than what we wanted to pay, the proximity to the ocean helped to make it worth it. We had an oceanfront room and it was perfect for our family. We did have daily maid service and when we arrived, the room was clean and welcoming with a personalized note... More

This really is more like a timeshare condo sort of place than a hotel. And yes, it is a bit dated in design and furnishings. But I found it very easy to feel at home. Each building has only 4 units, 2 downstairs and 2 upstairs. That means lots of windows to let those trade winds blow through. A generous... More

Our family of 4 stayed here a few weeks ago for 3 nights. This review might be better if we hadn't stayed at such a wonderful place beforehand. Originally attempted to book HCR online via either Tripadvisor or Travelzoo because it offered a discount, but kept getting error messages during checkout. Ended up having to call HCR directly to book.... More

Though I love the location, this resort wasn't my favorite. Maybe it's because it followed a week spent at Hanalei Bay Resort - a perfect place to stay in Northern Kauai. This seems to be a family place, so the sound of crying babies and little kids fighting filled the air. The condo was comfortable, though it was especially hot... More

Wow, Awesome stay at HCR. With a gorgeous golden beach and I can still feel the sun baking my back while we soaked in the North Shore of Kauai's best kept secret. My wife and I spent our honeymoon here, great choice! The Aloha spirit was alive and well with a local staff that made you feel like family. We... More
