Boogie boards, cooler, beach chairs and more....We had an amazing view of Hanalei Bay from our balcony (see pic). The pool was wonderful and swam many times. We ate... More

This resort is very relaxing with beautiful grounds and a very friendly staff. The Happy Talk Lounge is now open and adds the onsite ability to have a beer or a drink watching the sun set over Hanalei Bay.

There is no view like that of Hanalei Bay Resort. Rainbows paint the beautiful bay, with Bali Hai mountain as a backdrop. Why would anyone want to come home!!! The staff are fantastic and so friendly. Love Mai Tai Monday at the pool!!!

We exchanged our timeshare for a 2bd, 2 ba at Hanalei Bay resort and were very impressed! It was actually one big unit that could be split into 2 units if needed. The rooms were HUGE with a great deck that was accessible from both the bed room & living Room. The Master bedroom had it's own private terrace. Kitchen... More

Loved spending time at this resort. Friendly people, beautiful pool, Enjoyed sipping coctails over looking the pool at the Happy Talk Lounge. Disappointed the swim up bar was not up and running while we were there. Nice touch having Monday night happy hour Mai Tai's at the pool. Would recommend this resort, hope the main restaurant is open soon.

Thanks for the feedback, Coloradodude_7. We pride ourselves on seamlessly delivering exceptional service, and it is refreshing to see you took notice of that during your visit. We're hoping the restaurant will open soon. However, the owners haven't given us an opening date. In the meantime, Happy Talk continues to be very popular. Hurry back...we’re certainly expecting you!

Hanalei Bay Resort has beautiful grounds, fun pool/spa, outstanding tennis courts, and stunning views. The beach is just a short walk away or staff will give you a ride. Staff are very helpful and accommodating. All rooms have been updated and very comfortable. The resort is family friendly and amazingly quiet. The sunsets from your balcony are stunning or you...

Just got back from HBR after a week's stay. We were lucky to find a timeshare exchange at HBR through GPX after our one week stay on Big Island. So we changed our original plan to stay on Oahu to Kauai, and we all fell in love with the Garden Island and HBR. The location is convenient for all north... More
