My fiancé and I recently vacationed at Hanalei Bay Resort and our experience was amazing. The staff was very warm and welcoming. Immediately after our arrival, we were escorted with our luggage to our rental. We decided to stay in condo 4222 after all of the great reviews we've read. The first thing we noticed when we walked into the... More

I was on the island for business and expected a little more from the Hanalei Bay. There is no restaurant or cafe on site so you have to drive a couple miles to eat. There was no refrigerator or microwave or even coffee maker in my room so no point in bringing food back. My room didn't even have an... More

Our Hotel Rooms are not designed for our guests who want to cook or warm food in their units. We do offer guests in our hotel rooms small refrigerators upon request.Our grotto... More

We spent two wonderful weeks in unit 4222 at HBR and didn't want to leave! The resort has the best location in Princeville, overlooking Hanalei Bay and the mountains. We spent many hours sitting on our lanai looking at some of the most gorgeous scenery in Hawaii. The whole complex is lovely: stunning views from many vantage points and landscaped... More

Thank you so very much for the five star review on my condo and the resort. I enjoyed helping you have a wonderful vacation and am so glad you enjoyed those days of just relaxing on the lanai enjoying the views of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. It is a pretty magical spot. I hope you can return to my... More

We have been coming to HBR for over 10 years every spring break with our whole extended family and have been through the trials and tribulations of the ownership change and it is great to have gotten through that and seen the light at the end of the tunnel. It was worth the wait and anguish, now it is what... More

This was our 3rd stay at HBR and now that the units have all been remodeled and updated, it was the best ever. The location has always been fantastic and the pool has also always been beyond beautiful, but all the renovations have put it over the top.

What a beautiful resort. We are so pleased with the remodeled units. The views of the mountains and ocean are breathtaking. This is a great resort to get away from it all. There are wonderful walking/jogging trails all around as well for anyone wanting exercise. The shuttle is an excellent feature. The grounds are so lush and fragrant. Can't wait... More

It is important to know that this property is not quite a full hotel. There is no on-site food or bar, and the housecleaning is on a every-few-days basis. However, if you are okay with those two facts, it's a great place to stay and a great value for the location. The property seems to be many time shares, and... More

My husband and I spent three nights in a studio condo in Guava section of the resort. The grounds of the resort are lush and well maintained. The irregularly shaped pool is beautifully landscaped and the patio large enough for people to spread out and feel a sense of privacy. It is easy to rent chairs and umbrellas at a... More
