"Week of relaxation"
We loved the laid back atmosphere of the Hanalei Colony Resort. Our room was ocean front and we had breakfast and coffee each morning on our patio. Loved it! We've been to Kauai 7 times and this was definitely the most relaxing.

"Relaxation at its Best"
If you want to sit back and relax without then HCR is the place for you. It's in a beautiful, secluded area on Kauai's North Shore, just a couple miles past charming Hanalei. HCR is quiet, clean, and the staff is amazingly friendly. There's food on the premises and for everything else you can take a quick trip to Hanalei. Kee beach, one of the best beaches on the island and start of the famous Kalalai trail, is just a miles in the opposite direction of Hanalei. Bottom line, if you want to be waited on, drink at the pool, etc. then you'll do better at a larger resort like the Sheraton of Koa Kea. But if you just want to relax without worrying about crowds, noise, or buzz then you can't go wrong with HCR.

"Beautiful secluded resort."
This resort is amazing. We stayed in an Ocean View room, but could throw a rock into the ocean. Our view is spectacular. We stayed in J3, upstairs unit. No roosters, just a couple of friendly cats. It is out of the way which is a blessing. Very quiet. Although it is a ways from town, there is a shuttle that will shuttle you around all day and into the evening. You are very close to Tunnels Beach (a mile) and the caves, Kalalau Trail, etc. You really get to know this side of the north shore. While parking is terrible at Tunnels and everything else, the shuttle cures that problem completely. They say don't swim on the beautiful beach out front but if you look to the left and right there are light blue areas showing shallow areas. I am a mediocre swimmer and we swam on the resort beach easily. There are four barbecues (two gas and two charcoal and they provide the charcoal) so you can relax in the evening and barbecue onsite. We will be back.

"10 feet from the sand, 20 feet from the water"
My stay at Hanalei Colony Resorts was great. I have stayed at other resorts in Kauai and have always felt like I was staying near the ocean but here I was at the ocean. The difference is the ability to get up at night and walk out onto the sand in my bare feet to look at the stars and to alway hear the surf in my room.

"Old school paradise"
Beautiful location, close to the "end of the road" on north end, right at foot of Bali Hai. Sound of waves rolling in 24/7 makes for nice soundtrack. You can really get away from all things commercial out here. Modest but lovely, well-kept buildings, interiors and grounds, friendly staff. Art gallery/coffee shop on grounds is fun and convenient. We didn't eat at the Mediterranean Gourmet, but the location and ambience are great. This is low-key, north shore Kauai all the way. Off the beaten track. Great sunrises, but sunsets are not directly viewable (at least in summer) due to northeast-facing orientation. Only downside is that the beach right out front is not great for swimming, even in summer, due to reef, rocks, and surf. But great swimmable beaches like Tunnels and Ke'e are so close by. Hanalei town is about a 10-15 minute drive (5 miles). Kids loved it, even with no TV and lack of swimmable beach right out front. Hope to return someday, definitely.

"Paradise"
Love the beauty of the landscape that surround the resort. Very relaxing and stress free, I loved the location because it's near Tunnel Beach which is an excellent beach for swimming and snorkeling. And the best part is that the resort provides complementary shuttle service to the beach and to nearby town for shopping. I highly recommend this resort. The only downside is that they don't have TV. So we take more walks to the beach in the evening which is ideal to watch the sunset and enjoy the beauty of Kauai. My wife really enjoyed this place and would love to come back. Check out the restaurant near the resort called Mediterranean Gourmet . Excellent food.

"Lovely quiet stay in a peaceful setting"
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!

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.

"Nice spacious hotel with views of the beach."
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!!

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.

In general everything that was within the control of man was very good. The weather was poor with heavy surf and rains (constant, no mere showers). But the staff was unremittingly friendly and helpful. The restaurant was good and allowed take-out to the private rooms, which was nice on some nights. The location - near Tunnels Reef and near Na Pali - is extraordinary.

"Peaceful, beautiful and private"
Our stay was wonderful, we were greeted by friendly staff who took the time to explain all the amenities and offer suggestions for activities. We then walked the grounds (which were well kept with beautiful gardens) to our room and I can say the ocean was within view the whole time (they're right up on the beach). The room was spacious and open - every day we woke to the sounds of the ocean. Our room was clean and well stocked, we were able to cook without trouble and it felt like being home. As for the location, Hanalei is towards the end of the road and far from the bigger towns, but who goes to Kauai to hang out in the cities? It's close (about a mile) to Tunnels and Ke'e which are two of the best beaches on the island. Plus being out of the way means it's nice and quiet and the beach outside the resort feels private. You rarely see more than a couple people at a time. It was romantic, relaxing and close to great hiking and snorkeling, and only a short drive to Hanalei Town/Princeville when you want to eat and shop. We went on our Honeymoon and wish we were still there!

"Amazing View of the Ocean."
The staff was friendly. We landed in the rain and the road was covered in water. We almost did not go but waited for the rain to stop and the water went down. The desk closes at 8 but the key was in a lock box. Call ahead for the internet password. The internet goes off and on but there is a fully stocked kitchen, an amazing view and if relatively peaceful. They offer a free breakfast on Fridays and lei making for a few dollars. It was tastefully decorated but the nooks and crannies could have been cleaner. The Luau food was not so hot but the show was very nice and we appreciated not having to drive. All in all it was a super time. Just don't look too close at the nooks and crannies. Upgrade to the ocean view at least for part of your stay. It was so worth it.

"What a location!"
Having fallen in love with Kauai on a short visit via cruise ship, we made a quick decision to spend more time there and explore the beautiful North Shore. Expedia offered a reasonably priced package including flights from Honolulu and condo accommodation at the Hanalei Colony Resort. We were extremely satisfied with the HCR - a very clean and comfortably furnished condo with two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The condo was divided into rooms by means of sliding walls which did not reach the ceiling. This was very effective in letting the air circulate but perhaps not too ideal for two couples as privacy would be somewhat lacking. Although there was no air conditioning in the condo this was not a problem as there were three ceiling fans in the unit and the crosswinds through the slatted windows kept everything at a pleasant temperature. We had reserved a condo with ocean view, as opposed to ocean front, and were lucky to get unit D4, an upstairs unit, which had a view of the ocean through the gap between the ocean front buildings and set back a little behind a lawn. This was the next best thing to ocean front!

Better than expected. The accommodations were very comfortable for our family and the location is fabulous and on the ocean. Only a few minutes from the town of Hanalei and access to the Napali Coast in either direction. The shuttle bus at the resort made traveling to beaches and not having to park our car VERY convenient. The drivers had intimate knowledge of the area and were extremely helpful in planning our outings. No TV's or phones in rooms meant great family time and the front desk had a lot of old school board games. There were grills in several parts of the resort where guests could cook and eat looking out at the ocean or by the pool. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

"A Haven of Tranquility"
I recently stayed at this resort for 11 nights, with my mother and daughter. We sought a place that was quiet and on the water. Hanalei Colony Resort met and exceeded our expections. The staff, in particular, is friendly and helpful. We needed a first-floor unit because my mother cannot negotiate steps, and the staff guaranteed this for us. Bedding and linens are good quality, and beds are comfortable. The pool/barbeque area are recently updated, and are beautiful, although somewhat noisy because they are next to the road. The next-door restaurant and luau were convenient and good quality; on-site spa, coffeeshop, and art gallery are nice touches. The Hanalei Colony Resort van is a wonderful addition, transporting guests to nearly beaches as well as in to Hanalei. This is a great convenience, because the parking at the excellent area beaches is limited, and dinners were more enjoyable when we didn't have to worry about driving home on the dark, narrow road. Note that, while on the water, the beach in front of the resort is not a swimming beach. The view across the water, however, toward Hanalei, is beautiful. There is no AC in these units, but the breezes kept the condo comfortable. Also, the Wireless Internet worked like a charm. Tropical Storm Flossie visited Kauai during our stay. The staff made certain that we had directions for evacuation, which thankfully were not needed, as well as extra candles, matches, flashlights, and drinking water.
