Lovely quiet stay in a peaceful setting

Posted Jul 2, 2014
This place is warm, homey, inviting, and ever so peaceful and comfortable. Great K bed. Lovely grounds and landscaping. We were greeted and welcomed in an inviting way by all staff. The setting is incredible and unique near the "end of the road" near Tunnels and Ke'e Beaches - surrounded by greenery ever so beautiful. One should know that while it is advertised as beachfront, the beach is not a swming beach. The ocean view room that we had was well worth it - in comparison with the pricier ocean front and premium ocean front rooms. I'd return in a heartbeat!

What an amazing place!

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Splurge and get the Premium Oceanfront room and you will not be disappointed. Steps from the ocean. Let the ocean surf sounds lull into total relaxation. Enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee on your patio. What you dream of in a true Hawaiian experience. Highly recommended. I traveled to many magical places and this is place is right at the top of the list.

Friendly staff & beautiful property

Posted Jun 4, 2014
Pros: The resort is in a quiet area right on the beach. The staff are super friendly and helpful.
Location: The location is outside the hustle and bustle of the town of Hanalei. So, you get the convenience of being so close to the town without being in it.
Upon arriving at the resort, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The property is beautiful and is right on the beach so you fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. The surrounding area is quiet. Our room was fantastic... spacious, clean, relaxing... you could see the beach. I booked Hanalei Colony Resort for only half of our stay on Kauai. I wished I had booked out entire stay there. This is where I will be staying anytime I come back to visit Kauai.

Great place for peaceful solitude

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Hotel noise when people are walking around
This resort is in a great location. Close to the wonderful little town of Hanalei with it's great restaurants, nice snorkeling beaches and the otherworldly Na Pali coast. It's a joy just to stroll around the grounds of the resort. Only reason not excellent is because I have nothing else to compare it to.

Great value and very close to the beach!!!

Posted May 20, 2014
My wife and I enjoyed the stay at HCR. The staff was very accommodating and the views were incredible. At night we would open all the windows and sleep to the sounds of the ocean. I would highly recommend this place to everyone!

Nice spacious hotel with views of the beach.

Posted May 16, 2014
This is a beautiful setting with nice comfortable suites. The grounds are well laid out with a grassy lawn for the children to play in. It is right on a sand beach with sounds of the waves crashing. It's a good location for families with children. Hanalei Bay is close enough for general shopping and several nice restaurants and plenty of other shopping. Great beaches all around. Terrific hiking. The only downside was the lact of sound barrier between the floors. If you have young children who run around be kind enough to ask for a ground floor suite, and if your quiet, being on the second floor should do the trick. It is a great hotel and we will be back!!

Great location. Breath taking views.

Posted May 3, 2014
Location: Hiking, snorkeling, golfing & awesome views!
We were looking for a great location to explore Kauai's north shore. Hanalei Colony Resort is it. The condo had everything we needed and every staff member we met was friendly and helpful. The resort is located near great hiking & snorkeling. The views are fantastic! We would definitely recommend HCR!

Wonderful time.

Posted Apr 25, 2014
We recently returned from a lovely trip at the Hanalei Colony Hotel. The room was perfect for us ( 2 kids 2 adults). It was clean, well equipped and extremely comfortable. The staff was friendly, helpful and considerate. The location was ideal. Unfortunately our car was broken into whilst we were at the nearby Ke'e beach and my bag was stolen with phones and purse inside. Despite this horrible incident the hotel staff were incredible. They went straight into calling the police and changing the locks to the room. Even with this we had a great time and will stay there many times again.

Beautiful retreat from busy life

Posted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: Everything! A bit of a vintage Hawaiian feel!
Cons: my ability to stay there longer!
Hanelei Bay Colony Resort was wonderful! Located @ the end of the NW road before the beautiful Napali Coastline. We crossed 7 one lane bridges to get there! All rooms have ocean views! Spacious, clean, open the windows & feel the wonderful breeze from the beach that is just steps away! The concierge can help you with any reservations needed. The on site restaurant/bar & gift shop are very nice & convenient! The beautiful pool has a hot tub & BBQ area along with laundry facilities! I could spend a week just sitting on the patio relaxing!

As close to paradise as one can get.

Posted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: Location, cleanliness, staff and the endless breathtaking views.
Cons: The rooms are quite outdated, but still welcoming because of the cleanliness. Updating cabinetry, furniture and wall coverings would help.
Location: We covered a great deal of the island. A dinner cruise along the Napali coast and a tour of a quaint Hawaiian village near the Wailua river were tops.
The drive to Hanalei Colony Resort from the Lihue airport is long and slow. Then you round the last hairpin turn and catch sight of the resort. What a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!!!
