Staff was truly excellent, and remote location ideal for a quiet retreat. Seven one-lane bridges to cross to get to Hanalei town, so arrive by daylight. Excellent restaurant on property, open for lunch and dinner. Full kitchen in unit.

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!

We really loved staying here...it was a beautiful location. Juan & Steven were very personable and real. The shuttle driver, Joe gave us some good beach iand touring suggestions. We like the remote North Shore location. We were on our honeymoon and stayed one week. I would highly recommend it to our friends and family. We met one of the local artists, Mercedes Maza. She owns the ART & SOUL Gallery in Hanalei. One of her paintings of the "Hula Dancer" was in K3. LOVELY ARTWORK!

It is a very lovely area. Everyone is very nice. Be ready for a windy road with many wonderful trails, scenery, and beaches to visit. It is nice they now have a van for transportation, but it one should rent a car to see other areas of island.

My wife and I found this place by searching location. The rep from Hotels. com spent well over an hour getting a room the hotel had promised us. The service was all Hotels.com. On Sunday there was NO service since all employees went to a "Life Celebration". They offer free van service nearby places which we tried once. We were told by the driver that he had just gone on break and would be available in an hour. We drove.

The pictures on Expedia did this beautiful place no justice. The setting was unbelievable. We could see the sun rise every morning from our window, and even better were able to eat breakfast and watch the sun rise on our patio. The staff, Steven in particular, was awesome. Always knew what events to go to whether we were looking for a real Hawaiian luau, Helicopter ride OR even a kayak hiking adventure at one of Kauai's rivers in the rain forest. This place, staff and scenery were unbelievable.

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.

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.

Overall, I would return to this hotel. Note that this hotel does not have air conditioning, phone, or television. I knew this when booking it so I did not mark it down based on this fact. We had a higher priced beach front room. It was well worth it. The views were amazing. At low tide, we watched many people walking on the reef. We saw eels, crabs, and even a squid. I snorkeled in front of our unit and saw many interesting fish, coral, and a few more larger eels. For the most part, however, the beach is not for general swimming with the rocks and coral in shallow water. As a result, this beach is very lightly used during the day. The condition of the hotel was not perfect. Being this close to the ocean on the rainy side of the island has taken it's toll. There was signs of rust including around the electrical outlets. I only marked it down one point since this has to be a difficult to keep up with. Cleanliness, however, was not impressive especially around the kitchen. There is no dishwasher (which I didn't know) and some of the dishes were not very clean. I think the hotel could pay a little more attention to kitchen cleanliness. The pool area had grills and an eating area too. This area was very well kept.

Hanalei Colony Resort was a wonderful place to spend our honeymoon. The accommodations were very comfortable, the on site restaurant is pricey, but the food is AMAZING! Beautiful beaches on site, and nearby. The resort is a little out of the way for getting other food/supplies, but if you plan your trips into town, its not inconvenient. The staff are very helpful and offer a shuttle to all nearby locations.

We loved this condo! The location is great right on a beautiful beach and close to all the north shore activities. The 2 bedroom condo was very comfortable and laid out nicely for 2 adults and 2 teenage kids. The staff was super helpful and made the experience even better. We stayed at a large resort after staying here for the first half of our trip and wish we had stayed here the whole vacation!

We stayed at the condo for a week. It is close to nice beaches and is less expensive then others. It also provides clean towel and beach towels. The newly added free van service helped us go to beaches without having to find parking places. By the way, the parking at beaches was very difficult. The major downside of the condo was that it did not have separate bedrooms. The rooms were separated by wood shutters. It also had only one full bath. Another major downside is that that it does not have AC. The room became quite hot in the night.

Our family spend 5 nights here and we loved the location. I spend hours staring at the sea from the lanai and we loved the decor in the condo , the wood paneling and the artwork. No TV meant we played a lot more games with the kids. There were birds everywhere and big bull frogs on the lawns at night with my kids loved. The pool area was very comfortable and when we were there always pretty much empty. The tiki lamps at night made the area really pretty too. Staff were awesome and my wife and I came back to our room to find an anniversary card had been delivered while we were out and a note with a reservation confirmation for heli-tour left for us. The bedrooms were really areas separate by attractive wooden screens. This gives the place a nice open spacey feel but lacks privacy at night.

Our room/condo comfortably slept 4.The location is quiet and somewhat isolated, about 2 miles from the end of the road where the Kalalau trail begins. Its just an hour swimfari fromTtunnels. To the east it's a 10 minute drive to Hanalei. There is a rocky appproach to the beach, but with careful entry and exit the water is great! There is a constant wind that prevents things from overheating. We enjoyed the grill and laundry facilities. The pool and hot tub are beautiful, but with that amazing ocean why use them? They changed the sheets and cleaned every three days. There is a separate cafe and restaurant premises. The Tuesday luau booked up days in advance so we didn't try it. There only sliding doors separating the room areas, so sound privacy does not exist.

Wow, what a great destination. Our room was less than 30 yards from the ocean. We could hear the waves at night and it was soothing and pleasant. Our room was spotless and well equipped. Steven, the concierge, helped us find great restaurants and pick a good tour operator for a Na Pali Coast boat adventure. If you stay there, ask him about the best spots, which may be different from those advertised in the local magazines. His enthusiasm was sincere and contagious. We liked the location of the hotel. It was almost at the end of the road. It took maybe 10 minutes to get into Hanalei, but, in exchange, it was quiet and secluded. Also it was close to some good beaches and the best hiking trail we have ever experienced. We would go back in a heartbeat and probably will after we save a few pennies.

End of the road location, with not much to do for those who are "news junkies" are really attached to their electronic devices (they do have WiFi on premises, but no TVs or phones in rooms). I personally loved it, my traveling parterner, who is less into solitude, was bored after two days. If you snorkel, dive, sail, surf, or hike, though, or if you want to unplug and get away from it all, this is your place. They're a few miles out from Hanalei and the road is narrow and winding, so you don't want to be running back and forth a lot unnecessarily. Hanalei is the last place for groceries and supplies, pretty much. I'd love to go back, either alone or maybe for just a few days if traveling with someone who's more "wired" than I am!

We selected this resort because it is the closest to the Kalalau trail. The beach at this location is not swim friendly but, just down the road there is a couple of really nice beaches. The facility was well maintained & the staff was friendly. The resort resturaunt was really good but, a bit pricey as all things Hawaii. The atmosphere is quiet & peaceful. No televisions but fairly good internet. If you just come to relax & get away from it all, this is your place. Kalalau is an amazing hike. I recomend a little training before going & pack as light as you can. The trip will not disappoint.

This hotel is truly a hidden gem. I'm worried that the word will get out and we won't be able to book a room next year. Absolutely stunning views and perfect north shore location. Staff is so pleasant and welcoming. This year we sprung for the "Ocean Front" room, my jaw dropped when walking into A3. Literally steps to the beach and the views were breathtaking. I booked this on Expedia so wasn't sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised!

It's more of a condo complex with extras than a resort. The location is undeniably exquisite. It's a long drive from the airport, but once you're there, it's easy to settle in and not stray too far from the hotel in either direction but still find lots to do. There's no room service, the bed quality & linens are quite first class. The cleaning service is only every third day (not that we needed that much attention.) The bathroom is good, everything is quite clean. The kitchen is decent, but the quality of the silverware, knives and glassware is basically the kind of stuff I had when I just got out of college. (Clean up after yourselves, there are ants from time to time as this is a tropical location and we kept the windows open a lot.) We spread out and found it extremely spacious. The couch was comfy and great views from every window. We had every breakfast on the balcony. We were in building A - which was ocean front. The ocean is noisy, especially in the winter, so be prepared for the din. Even in the cool of the evening, we still kept the sliding door open for ventilation and snuggled into the bed. WiFi worked well. There's no TV, no newspaper delivery, so it was good to at least catch a little bit of what was going on in the world. The hot tub and pool was nice, though a little far away for some units. We used the coin laundry there as well to refresh our clothes. Hanalei was a short drive away with some good dining & groceries. Farmers market on Wednesdays.

Everything is expensive on this island, North shore even more than other parts. So knowing that- it still seems a bit overpriced for the quality of the resort. It was clean and well taken care of. No real complaints but not wowed by the place either. Would likely stay elsewhere next time I am there.

We loved this place. Our apartment was roomy and light, well laid out, spotlessly clean, well equipped, staff friendly and accommodating. and something beautiful on all sides--the ocean on mountains. The lanai had an overhang and was wonderful to watch the waves. The only disappointment was the swimming pool, which is small and not heated, so often it was quite cold and uncomfortable to get into (though very refreshing). I wish the pool were even moderately heated. The pool was important because the ocean there is quite wild and although there is a small beach that is sheltered from the strongest currents, if one wants to swim., the pool is needed. And the hot tub, although wonderfully hot, is tiny (cannot fit more than 3 or 4). Also, the pool's location right next to the road with cars driving by is not pleasant though there is a hedge separating the two. The food at the restaurant on the premises was terrible. But that said, I would definitely go back to the Hanalei Colony. The rooms with ocean view or ocean front are the best and we were lucky enough to have one! We had worried about the location (you have to go over 5 one way bridges) but that proved not to be a problem at all. It is a short ride --15 minutes tops --to the nearest town (Hanalei) and the bay there is gorgeous and protected so good for swimming. This place is a winner.

We spent 10 nights at HCR (well, with one exception when we were camping at Kalalau Beach). Highlights: Delightful staff (thank you Cissie and Stephen Steven?) for all your help and many answers to our questions). Serene location - we wanted to get away from it all. Conveniences of home - loved cooking eggs and making coffee, then sitting out on the lanai and watching the waves; were able to do (cheap) laundry during our long stay. AMAZINGLY comfortable bed. Conveniently close to Hanalei for surfing, kayaking, restaurants, groceries. Also conveniently close to gorgeous beaches and the Kalalau Trail - definitely one of the reasons we looked in that area. Be advised: it might rain, a lot. We were totally fine with the rain and had expected it. The noise from the wind at night was a bit of a problem and kept us awake most of the night twice in a row, but it was an unusual circumstance. Overall, I would love to stay here again and think it's wonderfully appropriate for couples looking for a quiet getaway or for families looking for a more spacious way to stay together near fun activities.

Stayed here for just two nights & wish I would have stayed longer! Beautiful ocean view with a corner unit. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen & beyond. Great multi-options for BBQing. Very warm & communal sort of vibe without being intrusive in any way. Unsurpassed beach-combing. Quiet, uber-comfortable beds. Watching a couple rainstorms roll in & out (stayed in December) from our Lanai was just awesome! Will stay here again for sure. Immaculate grounds & rooms. Well done guys!!

Why would you need fancy in paradise? If you want a fancy hotel, there's always Princeville. But if you want something that is a bit removed from glitz, Hanalei Colony is quiet, clean and unpretentious, with a glorious beach for walking or (cautious) swimming. Our 2 bedroom condo had a lot of louvered doors that separated the bedrooms from the living area. While this doesn't offer the best of privacy, it worked fine for us and our 38 yr old son who was traveling with us. Lovely ocean view from the lanai. There's a very good restaurant offering Mediterranean cuisine and a small coffee bar/art gallery on the premises so you don't have to drive back into Hanalei unless you want to. Any drawbacks? Well, remember, this place is quiet. So quiet that the restaurant and bar can close as early as 8:30, so have that nightcap a little earlier than usual and bring your laptop (free wi-fi) if you want to watch a movie-no TV in the rooms.

This resort is low-key, relaxed and provides the perfect platform from which to experience the beautiful north shore of Kauai. If you are looking for big tv's, lavish bathrooms, room service, bustling activity and lots of restaurants, this is not your place. HCR is subtle, well-equipped and beautifully situated, it is an excellent place to stay.

Great place if you are planning an intimate get away with your wife/husband or significant other. Great North shore location close to Tunnels beach and the Napali coast. We had unit H3 which had an incredible view from our suite. Overall, very nice. A note that wasn't obvious to us, this is not a typical hotel with daily room service. Also, no AC, it's not needed, but you need to keep the windows open at all times. Would definitely go back if we are back in Kauai.

It's a nice little condo on the beach, although you can't swim in that beach because of rocks and the reef. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Hanalei Resort is a very quiet and beautiful area. This is our 3rd trip in 2 years and love to be able to truly get away. The only downfall is the occasional smell from the septic system that we smelled while sitting out on our deck.

Very comfortable, clean and spacious accommodations, beautiful grounds. Hotel itself has one restaurant, everything else requires driving. Short drive to 'downtown' Hanalei with restaurants and some shops, and easy access to the North coast highlights, such as the Na'Pali coast, Ke'e and Tunnels beaches, Limahuli Garden.

We started off very disappointed. Our "deluxe ocean view" suite was on the ground floor next to the parking lot, and we could see the ocean as a narrow strip across the lawn and in between other buildings. I would have rated that very poorly. Luckily, the manager was able to move us after 2 nights to a better location, upstairs, and closer to the ocean. The units are very nice and spacious; charming, in fact. It would have been very useful to have 2 full baths (there are 1.5) for the 4 of us. The pool is very small and completely enclosed - not what I expect at an ocean front hotel.
