Had lovely time. It is quite remote from the Hanalei Town, but once you get in the spirit of Island Time, its no big deal.... Its not luxury, more of an apartment vibe, but the units are very large, the coffee store great and the access to quiet beach amazing. Close to all the cool beaches. Beds are very comfortable...

My husband and I stayed in an Ocean View room (D3) for 7 nights. We really loved our stay here. The resort wasn't full and we had sole use of the pool almost everyday. Our room had a spectacular view to the ocean, and the first night there was an amazing thunderstorm that produced incredible waves. We weren't able to... More

It had been 15 years since I had been to Kauai. Hanalei had always been my favorite part of the island. Driving through Hanalei after these years I was struck by how much more "touristy" it had become however this part of the island retains its natural beauty. As I continued the drive from Hanalei we cam to the Hanalei... More

We loved our stay here. We went for the premium ocean front room and it was totally worth it- the view was spectacular. It's not a fancy place with tons of personal service- it's just a lovely quiet place to relax. The room was spacious, and had a good size kitchen and two bathrooms. The setting on the beach could...

My wife and I stayed in an Ocean View room for 5 days. We had a great view to the ocean, and the white noise from the waves crashing at night was awesome. The beach wasn't swimmable due to rough surf in the winter. The apartment was very large and nice, but the bed was way too soft for us.... More

We loved this resort, mainly because it isn't really a 'resort' - more an unspoiled, relaxing retreat set in the wild paradise of northern Kauai. From the minute we arrived - even given the pelting rain! - we felt our stresses slip away. The rooms are very comfortable - not fancy but spotlessly clean and furnished in keeping with the... More

While the location of the property is indeed stunning, several other frustrations really ruined our stay at HCR. Given it was high season, we paid over $400 per night and received very little for it. Our "Ocean View" room was a garden view at best, with the bedroom 3 feet from the parking lot and all the constant noises that... More

We thought about staying at a more upscale place, and were originally a little concerned about reviews that were somewhat marginal. We couldn't have been happier here. The condominium was clean and well furnished, (furniture just updated)and the lack of AC was never an issue with the wind off the ocean. This is a fabulous place to stay, especially if... More

This was our fourth time staying at Hanalei Colony. If you want quite time, solitude on the beaches without the clutter of a big time resort you will love this place. The resort is seven one way bridges from Hanalei which keeps the traffic to a min. Our favorite is to watch the sunset from Ke'e beach.

We're a couple staying in F-2, a Premium Ocean Front unit right on the beach. Since we last stayed at Hanalei Colony in 2014, they've upgraded their furniture and it's beautiful. We fell asleep to the rhythm of the waves and awakened to the sight and sounds of the ocean right in front of our unit. The staff is friendly... More
