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

Retreat away in this far north, remote location of the island. If you're looking to get away from tourist, this is your spot! Your own beach access, snorkeling out front, surfing a point away, hiking trails in the jungle, one way bridges lead the way to this unplugged paradise! From the time we arrived, we were welcomed and treated like... More

Close to end of the road, and fairly unplugged (no TV, phone, AC, and wifi pretty spotty) but not rich in creature comforts either. Great location if you want to get away from it. Right on the water, though too rough for swimming when we were there great views, and the pool is modest (backside along the road, fenced, but... More

Loved being a the Hanalei Colony Resort. Staff was very helpful. Views and location are beyond description. Close to Napali Coast. Went to bed to the sound of the surf. Great coffee and the coffee shop. Clean condos with everything you need. Pool was secluded and peaceful (seemed newly renovated). Perfect for a family vacation.

We stayed here on the North Shore for the first 4 days of our Honeymoon on Kauai. It's a spectacular location, and we will definitely stay there again when we return someday. Plus they give 10% off on your return visit! It truly is "unplugged", and you feel so peaceful there. Besides, who needs TV's when in paradise?! There is... More

If you don't mind being near the end of the road over several one-lane bridges - and if you won't miss the absence of a TV (there's wi-fi and cell service) - then this is the ideal getaway. Some of the units are right on the beach overlooking Hanalei Bay which is a living postcard. A convenient shuttle service ferries... More
