Everybody needs to stay at a place like this at least once in their lives. There are no tv's in the room, no race for umbrella rentals on the beach and no crowds. What you get in exchange is a peaceful stay on a beautiful beach, where you can actually see the stars at night and hear the waves. Anybody... More

We had 11 days in Kauai, so we split it between north and south shores. While we stayed in a perfectly fine place in Poipu, in retrospect we would have been happier staying at the Hanalei Colony Resort the entire trip. We were upgraded to an ocean-front unit; loved the layout, the breeze, the views, the whole thing. Special shouts-out... More

We stayed in unit J1, premium oceanfront. Ocean is literally < 100 yards from our lanai - no units are closer. Spacious first floor condo with full kitchen. King bed. New furniture. Free shuttle to and from local beaches and restaurants in Hanalei.

We have been visiting HCR since 1989 and see how they keep getting better. Since our last visit, they finished remodeling all the units. All the furniture is new. It's a small detail, but now there is a desk with power and USB connectors for the typical traveler who wants to keep in touch by computer. Yes, there is WIFI... More

Recently spent 6 nights at HCR. A little apprehensive on booking given the unplugged nature of the property and all the comments re it's "remoteness" I arrived a couple of hours early after a really nice drive from Lihue and the room wasn't ready...no problem, the friendly check in staff gave me a voucher for a coffee, and I then...

Very efficient and helpful staff from reservations, reception to housekeeping. Book an oceanfront apartment if available! It is located near the end of the road, but day trips to the canyon side or Poipu are dooable. Hanalei has lots to do and a lovely beach.

Calm serene location on the beach with stunning views (if you book "ocean view" ). We were in one of 7 two-story buildings forming a U shaped courtyard open onto the ocean.

You definitely feel remote here… and that’s the point. Very quiet and relaxing. No noise issues with the neighbors, and it was wonderful to sleep with the windows open and hearing the waves. No phones and television, but complimentary wi-fi and good mobile reception if you still need to have contact with the outside world. Decent pool, but it’s completely... More
