After 14 years things just keeps getting better! The room renovations are nearly complete and are a serious upgrade with beautiful tile bathrooms, new cabinetry, GE profile stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops throughout. The beautiful new lobby is open and is awaiting finishing touches. Work is continuing on the bar and restaurant and should be completed in early... More

This resort was such a disappointment. We had decided to spend one night here on the north shore to do some sightseeing but were staying in Poipu. It is a huge property in a lovely setting but has no facilities for refreshments except a mai tai bar one night a week (Monday) and a taco truck once a week at... More

What a nice place. Beautiful views, lovely grounds, and the nicest people. Extremely accommodating. Loved the trail to the beach, a very nice walk and easy to get a shuttle from the bellman in his golfcart if we felt like. They are winding up a huge renovation, and will soon be re-open with a fantastic bar and restaurant and pool... More

A lot of other reviews say it's like walking through a botanical garden. Yes, the landscaping is nice, but who stays at a hotel for the landscaping? When we arrived for check in everything was in order and great. We rented from aloha condos and our room was just as I expected. We had a kitchen at our first rental... More

We stayed here in a 2 bedroom privately owned condo in August. The resort landscaping was beautiful and the staff was lovely - attentive and kind and always friendly. This resort is under renovation - there was no restaurant and there was a lot of construction noise. The pool area was disappointing. It too had some nice landscaping around it... More

As owner of unit 7105 and 7106 which is presented on flipkey, vrbo and private websites I maintain a high level of quality for my private condo. I purchased this condo in 1996 and it was completely remodeled last in 2007, the decor is exact as you see from the photos online - the exception is to the bathrooms which... More

After 40 years of marriage, my husband and I decided we would live out our dream of traveling to Kauai. I researched many places to stay, but once I saw the view at 9123 Hanalei Bay Resort, I KNEW where we had to go! Working with the owner, Jane, was a great experience! She was very helpful and knowledgeable. I... More

This was my first trip to Kauai and I have to say I could not have had a better experience. I found Hanalei Bay Resorts and then immediately zeroed in on one condo in particular owned by a lovely woman named Joan. Based on Joan's stellar reviews and gorgeous pictures, my family and I decided to rent out her condo... More

Thank you so much for your 5 star review of HBR 4222. I am so glad it met all your expectations. The firepit is a new feature and getting quite popular. At sunset you see many couples and families gathering around to the spectacular view. Another firepit has just been added in the lobby area. I don't think it was... More

It's been several years since I first stayed at the HBR. The staff is still number one, island friendly and accommodating to individual needs. The rooms and grounds have been have been completely transformed since my last visit. The landscaping was always gorgeous, but they have raised the bar to another level. The pool has been upgraded with more changes... More

We were so impressed by the beautiful landscaping at Hanalei Bay Resort. The rooms have recently all been renovated. It is a hidden gem, with intimate surroundings and a view that belongs on anyone's bucket list. The price is so reasonable and you get so much more than a hotel room. We have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with a... More

With the room remodels mostly complete and the lobby open, the resort is back to its glory days and will soon be even better. The kitchens and baths are wonderful. The large, upper pool is spectacular. One of the nicest hot tubs anywhere. As usual, the staff are attentive, professional and friendly. The managers are always available and helpful. You... More
