We are owners at this resort. I still say it has one of the most wonderful views of any place I have ever been fortunate enough to visit anywhere! The scenery is the reason we have purchased time share weeks here. The staff and management have worked hard (and it shows) to bring this resort out of the dated doldrums... More

My wife and I traveled to Kauai and spent a week in building 9 - it had an amazing view of the bay and was convenient for accessing all of the property amenities and is a very short drive to the Hanalei Bay town. The views from the resort present the mountains as well as the bay (absolutely beautiful). The... More

We stayed in units 9201/9202/9203 for 5 nights in November and it was great. These units, on second floor, have a totally unobstructed view. There are no other buildings even in your view. The units are set up like one condo with 3 King bedrooms, each with own bath and exterior entrance. It is beautifully furnished and in very good... More

My wife and I first visited HBR 4 years ago for our honeymoon. We had a lovely time in the 2 bedroom / 2 bath unit. The well manicured grounds and majestic views from our unit of Hanalei Bay and the mountains behind the bay made our week their very special. At that time of our visit 4 years ago... More

We stayed here in October. Rented privately in 32012. I was just a tad disappointed with this rental. I think we were expecting it to be better. When we got there there was a lot of sand in the condo. Floor needed better cleaning as it was ticky. Found lip stick on many cups. All around it meds some care... More

We stayed 10/25 - 11/1/14 and was pleasantly surprised to see that the lobby was finished and the room we stayed in was totally updated. We exchanged our timeshare week and read many negative reviews and found them totally wrong. Yes, the resort is going through a total reno but they guys don't start until after 9 AM. At that... More

We have been to Kauai several times, but our last stay at the Hanalei Resort was by far the best. The views are gorgeous. Our condo looked out over the mountains and we could see waterfalls from the patio. Although the restaurant and bar were being rebuilt after a fire, there were plenty of restaurants just a few miles up... More

This Resort has come a long way over past years. All rooms remodeled, including beds, appliances, bathrooms etc. Unfortunately, the rework since the fire that destroyed the Lobby, Restaurant, and Happy Talk Lounge, remains VERY slow and Mgt. Advises that it may reopen by mid 2015.

We stayed in a condo rental at this property, during the fun of Hurricane Ana. It rained during our entire visit, so we didn't get to use the pool or any of the outdoor amenities. Oddly, even though it was constantly raining, their sprinklers were always running! So very wasteful! I'm not sure if it was because we were using... More

View from the lobby was breathtaking the pool was relaxing and like a paradise. Concierge and front desk staff was very helpful. The kitchen and bathroom fixtures were upscale but the bedroom and living room were mediocre. The fitted sheets on the bed kept popping off every night, the headboard moved and the living room furniture was not comfortable. Very... More
