I just stayed @ Hanalei Bay Resort and it was terrible. They NEVER have any towels available and the construction is so loud!! Kaylin; who works @ the pool was great. She walked to get us towels so we didn't have to. She knows the meaning of hospitality!

My husband and I have stayed in HBR room 4222 twice now and recommend it to all of our friends. Owner, Joan Bettencourt, is the most accommodating condo owner! The condo is SO nice, and her recent upgrades make it feel like a beautiful hotel suite. As great as the condo is, the view takes the cake. There is nothing... More

Love the location of this resort. The walk down to the beach at St. Regis is easy and you can easily wade right over to Hanalei Bay for the big sandy beach (at least in the summer). Our condo has amazing views of Hanalei Bay and the surrounding mountains. Woke up to a rainbow over the Bay on the first... More

A Very reasonably priced place to stay. Have stayed here six times. However there was a fire five years ago and two years into reconstruction it burned again, so No restaurant and No Bar, and that was one of the best drinking holes on the North Shore! Beautiful spot with the Best View,,,,To bad it.s taking so long to reconstruct!

We come here every few years and love it. A little far from the other end of the island but we prefer the North Shore anyway. Hanalei bay is at the bottom of the hill and 2 pools at the resort. We rent a condo with a loft so it has room for my daughters too!

We just returned from a week at this resort. We rented a one bedroom condo from the owner in the Palms Building (4222) and could not have been more pleased! The views of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay from the lanai were breathtaking. The condo was beautifully appointed and had a recently remodeled bathroom and kitchen with top of the... More

You can rent a privately-owned or resort-owned unit at Hanalei Bay Resort. Definitely go with a privately-owned unit. The resort-owned units are very dated. We have rented many of the private units at HBR and 4302 has been our favorite by far. My husband and I and our two daughters (ages 11 and 13) and my mom rented 4302 and... More

We stayed here for 10 days while on vacation with our family. The location has an unbeatable view, amenities, and beach access. From the time we checked in, until the time we left they were all exceptionally nice and sincerely polite. Ryan, one of the workers who drove us around, was extremely hospitable and made us feel welcome every night... More

This resort is located on the cliffs above Hanalei Bay and has great views of the bay and the mountains, including Bali Hai. The rooms are newly remodeled and are very nice and comfortable. The grounds are very well landscaped and peaceful.

This isn't a luxury resort and the parking gets pretty packed. That being said, it is located in the most beautiful part of the whole island. The view from the grounds and from the rooms facing the mountains and ocean are absolutely incredible. The price is reasonable. Not a bad base from which to enjoy one of the most beautiful... More
