We had an ocean view room which was lovely. We have a 2.5 yr old so it was nice having lots of grass for her to play on. The ocean isn't safe to swim I but the ambience it creates is lovely-can we quite windy at times. The room is spacious with a fully equipped kitchen. We had dinner by... More

This was a stunning place. It is a group of buildings with 4 units per building. The accommodations are simple but more than adequate for the location. It is not luxurious but VERY comfortable. My husband opted to pay a bit extra per night to be right up close to the water. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and... More

This a very isolated spot on the north shore of Kauai .The view is amazing.We had a beachfront suite and would highly recommend.There were days that we felt we had the entire beach to ourselves. The north shore does get a lot of rain and wind.There are days that the surf is too large for swimming or snorkeling.We had the... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful this vacation was! Staff here is wonderful and friendly, made us feel at home. While the surf was rough at this time of year, there are amazing snorkeling opportunities to be had just out front. Tunnels Beach about a mile away is listed as a premier snorkeling destination but honestly, the things to... More

I have never reviewed a place we have gone, though I love TripAdvisor and it was actually a TripAdvisor peep who recommended the HCR to us. We went for our honeymoon in July, and it was the most incredible experience of our lives! Getting there was a Trip - we went at night which I would not suggest as it... More

Our ocean condo had an unobstructed view and was just steps away from the beach. We could see the ocean from all our windows and fell asleep to the waves. The condo itself was well-equipped, not the fanciest, but good enough. Steve, the conrcierge, was very helpful with suggestions and he helped book several excursions. He went above-and-beyond when we... More

Hanalei Colony Resort is actually a condo community that rents the condos to visitors at a daily rate when not being used by the owners. All condos are laid out and decorated in the same way, so there is uniformity among the units. Housekeeping service is optional, but is apparently provided on request at additional expense. The restaurant was closed... More

Our first time in Kauai. We spent the first 4 days in Poipu and stayed at the lovely Koa Kea resort. However, we spent a full week at HCR. We couldn't have been more pleased with our unit--lovely view of the ocean. It's not fancy--but it was clean. The pool is small, but the grounds are well kept. The employees... More

With our family of 4 including two kids age 8 and 11 we were on HCR for about a week. We absolutely loved this place. The condo was older but still great and had some ingenious room partitioning with retractable walls. We loved the serenity, the beaches (swimming and snorkeling were good right around the corner). We all loved it... More

Here now, and we do not want to leave. This is a vacation from our vacation with friends, from Oahu. As noted in other reviews, the two bedroom areas are actually only closed off with lovers. This was totally not a problem for us sharing with our friends. The surf is white noise, always constant. The setting is a paradise... More
