"Laid back escape"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and authentic Hawaiian experience"
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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Economic hotel close to beaches"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel on Haena Beach."
Pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the room. Room was clean and found only minor items in need of repair. Kitchen was stocked with all of the needed settings/utensils for preparing simple meals.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice condo near beach."
Near Hanalei Village that has all supplies, rentals you need for the condo or beach. Close to some excellent beaches 10 minutes away. Hanalei Bay is also nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to relax"
Rooms are large and clean, we had a great view of the ocean and close to the beach, functional kitchen, staff is friendly and helpful, Hanalei is about a 10 minute drive, resort is so peaceful and remote, close to Ke'e Beach, pool is small but new and clean with BBQs and area protected from the sun,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome Sea View, Rustic style, Friendly Staff"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Oasis at the end of the road"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great condo, spectacular location"
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.

"Beautiful location, but it IS at the end of the rd"
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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a family"
Great place on the beach. Quiet and out of the way, good if you like to prepare your own meals with the kitchen and bbq pits. The quality of the furnishings isn't a 4 season or hyatt level, but still fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great room and great location"
Recommended for familes, couples, or anyone else who wants a peaceful oceanside condo within a short drive (only an hour to the airport) of just about any activity on the island. Very friendly and helpful staff throughout our vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well Worth It"
Great place to stay. We were on the 2nd floor of Bldg C, great view of the ocean from our bedroom, the 2nd bedroom, the living area and the deck. Wake up to sunrise while laying in bed listening to the ocean, cannot beat it and we did not even have an oceanfront room. Highly recommend this out of the way location. Service and cleanliness of room was […] outstanding; our unit was very updated and great looking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Totally relaxing with beautiful views and sunrises"
Kauai was more breathtakingly beautiful than I ever imagined. I look forward to returning in the future and would definitely stay at the Hanalei Colony Resort again without a doubt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful relaxing stay. Beautiful weather, location and staff all very helpful. The room was very comfortable and close to Hanalei town and numerous beaches. I would stay their again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved the fact that the rooms didn't include a television. My family and I were able to unplug and relax without distractions. Tunnels beach and Ke'e beach are about a ten minute drive from the condo. The Mediterranean restaurant near the condo was fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Kalalau trail"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Truly a hidden gem"
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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This place had the best view I've ever seen. It was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. I didn't miss the plug ins. It was great not having TV, internet and phone. Made us pay attentione to each other. How many places do that? Loved it and I can't wait to take my kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great vacation hide-away"
Great experience for vacation. Right in between pitoresque beaches that were used for movie scenes. Hotel is in great shape and the staff is incredibly friendly. Desirable location on the less frequented North Shore that hosts all the spectacular sites.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Away from the worries of daily life"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice resort- Dont set your expectations too high"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"wonderful place to stay"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Honeymoon bliss for outdoorsy couple"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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!!

"The Princeville alternative"
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.

"Kauai North Shore relaxed gem."
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect North shore location"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Resort Off The Grid"
Great Place, Great Location, Very Relaxing, Off the Grid We look forward to coming back and wished that we had booked more days there rather than the lousy Marriott Resort we went to after this for about the same money!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great area to truly get away"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect spot for northern Kauai"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Some units are much nicer than others"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful beach location"
We would definitely stay at Hanalei Colony Resort again! Service was fantastic and the views/location can't be beat! There is also a top rated restaurant at the resort which was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outstanding North Shore Resort"
Our stay at HCR was idyllic. The unit was clean with flowers, candles and cookies to welcome us. It was spacious, bright, well-equipped and comfortable. The staff members were friendly and responsive. The view from our premium ocean front was spectacular. We shopped at the Tuesday Hanalei Farmer's Market and the fresh fish market and enjoyed many memorable […] meals at the condo. The nearby beaches are gorgeous, as other reviewers have shared. We saw every sunrise from the lanai. The waves broke continuously under the window. There was only one rainy day. Otherwise, the sun was bright with brief passing clouds bringing light showers. We loved being on the north shore and took day trips to visit the other sights on Kauai. We would definitely come back to Hanalei Colony Resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great family vacation"
This is a perfect place for families - excellent location. It is windy and not the best swimming beach but many wonderful beaches nearbyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Romantic and secluded for honeymooners"
The perfect place for us! The condos are located in the secluded and romantic North Shore. We were 1 mile from Tunnels Beach (best snorkeling), 1 mile from Ha'ena Beach Park (great swimming and body surfing), and 2.5 miles from Ke'e Beach (sunset watching). Our room had an ocean view, which was a treat to wake up to everyday. There is a restaurant, […] small coffee/gift shop, and spa on site. We ate at the restaurant for the Tuesday night Luau, which was enjoyable. Kauai has a TON of wild chickens but there are a few cats on the property that keep the chickens away. You'll understand when you arrive how nice it is not to hearing crowing first thing in the morning. The condos don't have air-conditioning but you don't need it because of the ocean breezes. The kitchen is equipped for basic cooking, and includes a microwave. We cooked breakfast and a few lunches at the condo to save money. There is no T.V. or telephone -- but why would you want one on vacation? The map at the front desk was the best map for the island. There is a beach but it is not swimmable. No worries, though, because there are excellent beaches up the road. A great place! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not exactly what we thought it would be, but good"
My impression from the way it was advertised was that it was way more secluded than it actually was. Beach is pretty, but views from the deluxe rooms are not all what they look like in the photos. Also, you can really hear the other guests, both in their rooms and as they walk around on the deck outside, although the wind, rain and waves helps drown […] out people noises. Cute cats roaming the premises and they keep the chickens away. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Hot tub was broken during our stay, which was a bummer. Still, better than staying at a mega resort and seems to be the best peaceful and comfortable option on the north shore. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Unplugged and unspoiled"
The staff were very accommodating and helped us with activities and made our stay pleasurable. We had a great view and enjoyed just sitting and enjoying the peace and solitude. We enjoyed not having a phone or television in the room. It was nice to be "unplugged". The kitchen was well equipped and we had many delightful meals sitting on the lanai.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful, peaceful location as close to the Kalalau trail that you can get. Walk out your lanai to the sea. Breathtaking views of the ocean and short walk to fdown the beach for abulous snorkling. Little windy in the winter months although still great. Even though facility is older the room was great and clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rain in paradise"
It rained at lot during our stay -- 36 inches in the 24 hours before our arrival. More rain arrived during our stay. but nowhere near the torrent before our arrival. The hotel is at the end of the road, susceptible to landslides from saturated soil, high waters affecting bridges and fords of normally small streams. In addition to road closures, we […] experienced electrical failures. Telephone poles are no match for a lot of rain. There were no generators at the hotel. Yet even experiencing these problems, we loved the peace and quiet. The setting is exquisite -- near the site for the movie "South Pacific -- and the rooms were fabulous. The restaurant next door was top quality -- ranked by some as the best on the island. If you are worried about catching a flight, you might want to spend the prior night closer to the airport. We would return in a heart-beat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Our Recent Stay"
quiet, peaceful and relaxing location. It is not luxurious, but it priced more than fair for what it has to offer.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved this place! Great location, on the beach, best part of the North Shore. Secluded enough for a low-key getaway but close enough to Hanalei to go out to eat and shop, etc. Room has all the amenities you need and the staff was helpful and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Place on North End"
We enjoy the quiet of Hanalei and this portion of the Kauai coast. This property was nicely located and low key. Our room had a nice ocean view even though we were not on the beach-it appears all the units have nice views. We would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tom A's Review of 1-27-2012"
Not recommended for the business traveler - no phone, no TV, but wireless internet. Rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. Pool, Hot tub, and other shared areas keep in great condition. Staff is friendly and professional. You can not swim at the beach itself, but you can sunbath, and watching the sun come up is beyond expression. It's a short 5 minute […] drive to great swimming & snorkeling, and an 11 miles hiking trail. Bring plenty of water if you're going to hike. I would recommend to a friend.

"Christmas with a full kitchen and 2 bedrooms"
We loved the size of the room but most of all the view. We were able to cook a full Christmas dinner and eat on the balcony overlooking the ocean. A long drive from the airport but totally worth it. Rent a jeep not a mustang!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay in Hanalei"
One of the best values in the Hanalei area for the money. It is actually a condo that could accommodate whole bunch of people. Room is split in three by sideways doors.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location but a little issues..."
The location and the view from the room is excellent. I really enjoyed the view from the room and sound of waves. The room was spacious and comfortable bed. Considering the age of the building, the room was kept clean and well maintained. Only problem we had was the smell of the bathroom and the frequency of the house keeping. We stayed 6 nights but […] we had only one house keeping. Considering the price of the room, they should provide house keeping everyday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
