Horribly overrated, this "resort" resembles a 70's era apartment complex, complete with run-down furnishings, stained carpeting and a pervading smell of mildew. No A/C in the units means the rooms are hot and humid and the sheets are sticky. You only get maid service 1 day out of 7, so you need to enjoy cleaning and taking out the trash... 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

A peaceful spot near Tunnel's and Ke'e Beach, and the Kalalau Trail on the Na Pali Coast. HCR is a sweet escape, rain or shine, to the lush tropical paradise that is Kauai's North Shore. The beautifully appointed rooms have partial walls don't ride all the way to the ceiling, which reduces the privacy but creates a wonderful sense of... More

We are a family of 5 with 3 of those being teenagers. One thing I did not know until after I booked (noting 5 adults in the room) was that the condo only has sleeping arrangements for 4 even though the website listed 4-5 for occupancy. It did sleep 5 but we had to pay and additional $15 per day... More

Clean inviting rooms. Always a breeze blowing through the windows. Wonderful staff. Great amenities - love the pool area. Close enough to Hanalei but far enough away to feel like you just found a slice of heaven. PLEASE do yourself the favor or scheduling a lomi lomi massage at the spa on the grounds while you are there. The ocean... More

Our visit to Kauai us so much fun and Hanalei Colony Resort was the most peaceful, relaxing place to be that I could possibly imagine. Almost to the end of the road on the north shore it is far enough removed yet also close enough to shopping, dining and all the great attractions of Kauai to be the perfect location... More

One of my very best friends got married at on the beach at the Hanalei Colony Resort and it was stunning. The view of the ocean from our room was breathtaking. We went hiking daily on Napali Coast trail and the views were absolute perfection. The mountains and waterfalls combined with the stunning ocean was truly a site everyone should... More

Celebrating our 10 year anniversary during this trip. Hanalei Colony has been the most relaxing place on earth! Very nice room, big enough to spread out even though we have only 2 guests. The nearest restaurant is still under construction, so be prepared for light fare, rooms are great, I suggest bringing groceries. Beach is nice, not a lot of... More
