The resort is much improved from the low of 6-12 years ago. Management and staff are friendly and helpful. Prospective guests should be advised when booking that they will need a car as there are no food services on site at present, and beaches,shopping and points of interest are a few miles away. As an owner since 2000 I am... More

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon. We first stayed in Maui, so when we came to Kauai I wanted some place a little less touristy. The resort was in the middle of being remodeled which didn't bother us too much but there wasn't a restaurant or store of any sort on the property. You can walk or they... More

A very beautiful, very tropical, quiet, relaxing resort. Beautiful pools, great tennis program, and stunning views of the beautiful Hanalei Bay and surrounding mountains. We stayed in Banana Building, and will request it again next visit. A place to be as active or relaxed as you choose. We kayaked the river, the ocean., snorkeled, swam, took helicopter tour of the...

Stayed in Unit 4301 owned by Janice & Fritz Leutheuser over New year 2013-2014. We had a fantastic stay, the pictures really gives a true view of the unit and the view. Unit 4301 is wonderfully equipped with nice furniture, cutlery and beach gear. It has a huge kingsize bed with an undisturbed view of Hanalei bay, we woke up... More

A superb start to each day having breakfast on the balcony of condo 4202 with beautiful view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. Our condo was well appointed and positioned conveniently within the resort, with easy access to beach, pool and tennis courts. Bar and restaurant were closed for refurbishment but didn't detract from our stay as the condo had... More

Simply outstanding. Great for a family. The units are well laid out and give the option of either cooking your meals or eating out. When the restaurant and bar are complete then this will add the finishing touches. They are anticipating this to be by Christmas 2014. Next time we will spend more time at Hanalei Bay Resort and less... More

The grounds were beautiful, but we were pretty upset that both the restaurant AND bar are closed for renovation. And, you are several miles from the nearest bar/restaurant, and Hanalei Bay Resort doesn't offer any transportation TO those bars/restaurants, so unless you brought food and drink with you, you're kind of out of luck.

WOW! This place is amazing! The grounds are perfect and the people who work for the resort are very helpful and know what customer service is all about. The room was very spacious and clean. I cannot wait to return to see how the remodeling project looks. The remodeling was not something that detracted from our enjoyable stay. The only... More

We expected a very simple resort & were delighted to drive up to the grand open air reception area where we were welcomed with a smile! The view from reception (lobby) is majestic!! Free coffee (if u like powdered milk) & water (juice too I think) are available if you wish to sit & enjoy. (There is construction taking place... More

Just back from a perfect week in Kauai, North Island. Hanalei Bay was exceptional. We stayed in 5301/02 "Hala". Third floor vaulted ceilings with fans and breezes made it comfortable. Views amazing. Suite was spacious and recently remodeled. Complete with good furniture and new stainless appliances made the apartment very complete (trundle bed and sofas would sleep additional family). There...
