“Lovely view, uncomfortable unit”
Reviewed March 11, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The view from the lanai is lovely. But, his condo does not have a real kitchenette. No sink or running water, no outlet for the coffee maker. Small refrigerator. Having to use the bathroom as not only a bathroom but also for dish-washing and even for making coffee is not only a big hassle but also unsanitary.

We were not comfortable in this condo. The tiny table with hardly enough space for two people was totally inadequate, plus the second person cannot sit without having to move it. And, one of the chairs had a very sharp screw poking through the pad. The room needs a sofa and armchair, which would fit easily if there was just one king bed and they got rid of the huge chest housing the TV (which should be mounted on the wall, with a larger table and chairs under it).

The resort fee was $20 per day, and that was huge especially for those of us who don't play tennis. The grounds were attractive and well-kept. However, lots of walking (with ups and downs) is required to get from the parking lot to the unit. There is a very nice walk down to the beach.

And we never have any cleaning done during our week there, though our contract indicated it would be done twice.

The refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave all are housed in a separate nook which includes electrical plugs. This unit is just a hotel style room, and as such we have chosen to have 2 queen size beds as most of our guests are either a couple or have small kids - plus right next door is our full one bedroom condo with separate kitchen so when rented together the condo can accommodate 6 guests quite comfortably. I am sorry about the screw and I know we had maintenance come and fix that...as for cleaning you only paid for an outclean which means the unit is clean upon your arrival and cleaned when you depart. We do not offer maid service without an additional charge. The contract does not state you will have cleaning 2X a week - I have been renting our condo for over 20 years and our contract states specifically out clean and nothing more. I am happy you enjoyed the view - and yes it is a walk to the condo, but the privacy is stellar and I do hope you enjoyed that, plus close proximity to the small pool and BBQ's where there is a full outdoor kitchen.

“Comfy room and beautiful view”
Reviewed February 25, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We enjoyed our stay very much. Loved the use of the beach chairs and cooler. The resort was very nice. We had supper at bar first night. After that went into town. The view of ocean and mountains is spectacular. Hanalei Bay will not disappoint. The only drawback is the walk from room to ocean. There should be a short cut and maybe we just didn't figure it out!

The condo located in the Hanalei Bay resort is a good solution for two people, spending their vacation there. The space for next person is rather limited; its lack of the third chair, both inside and in the small terrace. The whole studio is rather small with tiny bathroom. But has its own character and nice view on the Bay, which is the main strength of this property. There is no electric cooker, but only microwave, so be prepared to base on the products ready-to reheat. The resort offers two swimming pools and many tennis courts. The restaurant in the main building is under reconstruction. After finishing this work, will be for sure great option for dinning, without leaving the resort. The steep path to the beach is beautiful and not to forget.

I am so happy that this family of four enjoyed their stay at my hotel style room, especially great to hear are that the beds were comfy as this is important when traveling!
Internet in the rooms is available for a fee via cable connection in the main living room. As these guests were staying in the lock off unit they still could access the internet via our WIFI, if I had known that they were having trouble connecting to the internet I would have sent maintenance down to help with the problem but did not hear about it 'til now.
As for the restaurant/lounge it has been closed for four years and never was this info kept hidden from anyone as it is posted all over the internet!
The hot water heaters in ALL two bedroom condos at the Hanalei Bay Resort are a mere 50 gallons, if everyone is taking a hot shower at the same time it will only last so long...
As for the layout of the condo, the wasted space between the armoire and the wall closest to the lanai is a hallway that leads to the full one bedroom condo, when these doors are open it is a hallway, but when closed can be a perfect place to store luggage!
Being a privately owned condo ALL cleaning/washing of linens is up to each guest. Below our condo and to the right is an ice machine and right next door are coin operated laundry facilities - which I think is amazingly convenient!
Considering this hotel style room with a FANTASTIC view, as ALL guests have stated, is just $135 p/night the value cannot be beat.
If you go to the St. Regis to get an ocean view room with NO lanai expect to pay closer to $500 p/night!
Thanks so much for your comments!
