We just spent another week at Hanalei Bay Resort; this will be our 4th stay. The grounds are beautifully maintained. All of the units have been completely refurbished. The kitchen had top of the line appliances, granite counter tops and new cabinets. The bathrooms were nicely redone. Everything about our room was great. We love the upper swimming pool and... More

I am a time share owner and have seen the property being managed poorly over the past years but this has all changed.

We recently vacationed at HBR during the Thanksgiving holiday week (2014). This resort is beautifully maintained. The views are fabulous. The staff makes every effort to make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean, comfortable and more than met our expectations. We had a wonderful vacation at a beautiful resort. The only negative is that HBR does not yet have... More

Kauai knocked my socks off for its beauty and Hanalei Bay is best spot to be in the middle of it all. Our studio had full kitchen and epic view of mountains and waterfall off our deck! We'll be back for sure. Staff was great and property is extremely well maintained. Traveled a lot around the world (SE Asia, Central... More

It's great to see that you enjoyed the amazing beauty that the north shore of Kauai has to offer. The views of the maountains and waterfalls are fantastic no matter what time of year and the full kitchens in the studios make it easy to enjoy the view over breakfast or dinner from the lanai. We'll look forward to you... More

Beautiful property. Very relaxing. But, far from most of the attractions on the island so if you only want to relax and sit at the pool or the beach, this is a great place. If you want to do more than that, Princeville is not the place to be.

We had a fabulous vacation at this Resort. The introduction meeting on our first morning was most helpful in getting the most from our stay. They recommended many activities which we took advantage of, and feel that we learned more about Kauai through them than we would have by our own discovery. The Resort is beautiful and clean, with a... More
