Our family has been to Kauai many times, but this was our first time staying up north. We rented a partially updated unit through VRBO. We were thrilled with the location, beach, views, pool, towel service, AC, price of our unit, size of our unit, and friendliness of staff. We loved our unit and if we ever stay up north... More

We stayed 10 nights at HBR it was perfect. We stayed in unit 9323&24, it was very well appointed and had everything you could possibly need. Really nice kitchen very well stocked. A/C I might be a wimp, but it would be really stuffy without it. We had a loft unit the vaulted ceilings were great. The condo was plenty... More

Having stayed here many years ago, we were pleasantly surprised with the remodeled units. We stayed in a one bedroom and enjoyed the remodeled room and we had a wonderful view as well. The rooms are clean and they have everything you need to cook meals (or not). There was a full size refrigerator, dishwasher and stove/oven. The 2 pools... More

This was the best snorkeling week ever. Hanalei Bay Resort is ideally situated for the best snorkeling in Kauai. It is a 15 minute walk away from Hideaways Beach which has the second best Snorkeling in Kauai. While there, I saw a huge school of Butterfly fishes, a good variety of all the other fish many turtles. But this week... More

Hanalei Bay Resort has the island feel with the best views of the Bay. The pool is great and the hot tub with the lava rock and sand floor is so soothing. The staff on-site are truly the best. Most have been part of the team for awhile and they take pride in their resort - the Aloha Spirit shines.... More

We spent two weeks at Hanalei Bay Resort in July. The staff is always pleasant and the rooms are spacious and newly remodeled. The resort property and surrounding vistas are spectacular. This is truly paradise. Hanalei Bay Resort treats every guest like royalty. The "aloha spirit" makes this place a true vacation destination. We are already looking forward to our... More

I stayed at the Hanalei Bay Resort for two nights in July. The pool area is nice and they have Mai Tais on Mondays at 5 PM. We had a one bedroom condo with two bathrooms and a full kitchen/living room. It was very comfortable and clean. The lobby/reception.restaurant area is under construction...so I really can't comment on that. However,... More

We traded our timeshare through Interval for Hanalei Bay Resort. It looked nice online, but I had some concerns as there were a few bad reviews. I think those bad reviews must have been in an older condo, as ours was spectacular. We've traded all over the country and stayed in some nice places and this one was at the... More
