This is a nice condominium complex but not a hotel with amenities. And not within walking distance of anything although there is a shuttle service. The accommodations were nice, the kitchen well-equipped and it was very clean. No gym. The restaurant was quite good and interesting with a spectacular view. The staff was uniformly excellent.

Aloha Marc F. Thank you for taking the time to write your nice review of our unique and secluded property. And thank you for pointing out that we have many amenities that a lot of hotels don't have such as our shuttle, full-sized and fully equipped kitchens, and our proximity to the beach. We look forward to hosting you again!

We had an amazing week at Hanalei Colony. The landscape is amazing, nature at its best. The apartment was beautifully and tastefully furnished, everything you would need for a quiet and tranqui stay. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend a stay.

Aloha Wim v, Were are pleased to read that you enjoyed Hanalei Colony Resort! It truly is a special place - partly because of what we DON'T have (televisions, telephones, air-conditioning). Thank you for reviewing us and sharing your thoughts.

First, know that this resort is not IN, or particular close to, Hanalei. It's in Ha'ena, a lush beautiful area near the very end of the road. It is a great place to go, especially if you want a peaceful retreat from the world. The 15-20 minute drive into Hanalei from Ha'ena is winding, bumpy, and requires waiting at a...

Aloha portlan, Thank you for reviewing Hanalei Colony Resort. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed that you weren't able to snorkel Tunnels due to the Winter ocean swells. Very happy that your overall visit to Kauai and your stay at our resort was enjoyable.

We spent two weeks in an ocean view unit and got married during our stay. We could not have asked for a more perfect setting and ceremony. Hanalei Colony Resorts and their staff exceeded every expectation we had. It might not be perfect for someone who desires a high-end touristy type place, but, if you want unplugged and unspoiled as...

We come to Kauai annually, and stay on the South Shore at a our timeshare. This year we decided to actually spend a few nights on the North Shore to enjoy longer hikes, evening activities, etc. and chose Hanalei Colony Resort to be away from the hubbub of Princeville. We could not have chosen a better location. The property is...

Aloha GCD45720 We are happy to hear that you decided to stay on the north shore with us at The Hanalei Colony Resort. There is a different feel here on the north shore than the south side.

I ended up loving our days at the Hanalei Colony Resort. It's quite far from Hanalei, so don't expect to be able to walk into town. I was a bit nervous as we checked in -- the room was a bit dated, and being on the water always ages things prematurely. The bathroom in particular was dated, and, while it...

I want to give this property a 5 but i am struggling. The location is possibly the best on the island! We splurged and rented an ocean front room. We do not usually spend this much on lodging.

We love HCR because they offer well-designed ocean-front, full-amenity condo's, fantastic and unique North Shore setting, quiet and low-key stays, and an authentically friendly and caring staff.
