I stayed here for the first time renting through VRBO. We rented two studio units next to each other. They were very nice and located next to the parking lot for easy access. It is quiet in the morning and evenings and the grounds were very well kept. Our only issue was the construction noise during the day. If you... More

The view from our rooms. We could look out our door and see the mountain range the ocean the rainbows after the rain, the beautiful sunsets. The roosters and chickens and geese and all the little birds that sang their songs in the morning. We even had a wedding party right in front of our living room. Rooms 8103 and... More

I've been staying at the Hanalei Bay Resort for the past ten years and was really pleased with the improvements made in the last year alone. The hotel room I stayed in for the first week had been newly refurbished as had the two bedroomed apartment I had for the second week. For the first time, I could actually see... More

This isn't quite a five-star resort - it's more like the most beautiful apartment complex you've ever seen. It's not perfect, but based on the location, the amenities, and the beauty of the surrounding area, I'd definitely stay here again. When we arrived for check-in the front desk couldn't find our reservation. One night they advertised "food trucks and drinks... More

Our family has been to Kauai many times, but this was our first time staying up north. We rented a partially updated unit through VRBO. We were thrilled with the location, beach, views, pool, towel service, AC, price of our unit, size of our unit, and friendliness of staff. We loved our unit and if we ever stay up north... More

We stayed 10 nights at HBR it was perfect. We stayed in unit 9323&24, it was very well appointed and had everything you could possibly need. Really nice kitchen very well stocked. A/C I might be a wimp, but it would be really stuffy without it. We had a loft unit the vaulted ceilings were great. The condo was plenty... More

Having stayed here many years ago, we were pleasantly surprised with the remodeled units. We stayed in a one bedroom and enjoyed the remodeled room and we had a wonderful view as well. The rooms are clean and they have everything you need to cook meals (or not). There was a full size refrigerator, dishwasher and stove/oven. The 2 pools... More

This was the best snorkeling week ever. Hanalei Bay Resort is ideally situated for the best snorkeling in Kauai. It is a 15 minute walk away from Hideaways Beach which has the second best Snorkeling in Kauai. While there, I saw a huge school of Butterfly fishes, a good variety of all the other fish many turtles. But this week... More
