Relaxing close to Hanalei
Posted Oct 18, 2016
Relaxing condos on beach (no swimming unless very calm though), 20 mins from Hanalei town/bay/beach, 5-10 mins (and a bit of a walk) to Tunnels beach, 20 mins from Napali Coast State Park. DO NOT expect your room ready before that 2pm mark though. Ours was not ready until 2:40pm.
Though I was told some units were updated, ours was not. The older units, though still nicely furnished & decorated & comfortable, are a bit dated and in need of updates due to the salty sea air... fixtures and appliances showing wear & rust. Not dirty, but was enough to be noticeable.
No A/C, no TV, and no phones, which we loved, but some may not. But, has wifi... weird multi-building wifi. It was pretty quiet between units too for having all the windows open most of the time. Our unit (ocean front) was set nicely to receive the trade-winds & keep things cool, but some units may not be as conveniently set up.
We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary, and were upgraded by the staff from ocean-view to ocean-front, which was very nice!!
The only restaurant on-site is the Mediterranean one. It was good but pricey (even with the discount ticket given to resort stays). But, Sushi Girl, is very close (5-10 mins). They have a limited menu, but everything is very fresh, very very good, and reasonably priced. Try the sushi burrito! Kalypso's in Hanalei was also reasonable. The coffee cafe across from Kalypso's also has sandwiches and was very reasonable & delicious.
