We had some mixed feeling about our stay here. Our room was large, comfortable and well furnished. Our "upgraded ocean view" was actually a view of the ocean if we went out and sat on the lanai. The beach was relatively narrow and hard to walk on due to how soft it was. I wouldn't classify it as a swimming...

It's raining a lot here but it is not that bad staying inside of the hcr .plenty of room, really good taste in furniture, and the best view of the bay. Bed is comfortable and they organised activities. Good access to the beach and sites of the north shore.

This is one of the only resorts/lodges in this part of Hanalei - about 3 miles before the end of the road. Great location to reach Tunnels, Ke'e Beach, etc. and about 2 miles from Hanalei town. Upon first arrival, it looks a bit like a remodeled motel as the graphics, coffee shop signs, etc. look a bit outdated. The...

We loved being way out at the end of the north island. It's stunningly beautiful and away from the crowds. The rooms are spacious with kitchen, living room and extra bed. The surf is rough here, but the beach is great for walking and just a mike or two from great snorkeling beaches. BUT, as about construction before you book...

Location is beautiful but during the winter months lots of heavy rain, wind and the ocean is too rough to go out swimming or snorkeling. Most important, hotel under construction/remodeling and we were not told about it. Happy travels!!!!

The HCR was spectacular with amazing views from our deluxe ocean front room G2. Staff was friendly and room was amazing. Couple of down sides was locals walking barking dogs early in the mornings before sunrise waking everyone up.

Everybody needs to stay at a place like this at least once in their lives. There are no tv's in the room, no race for umbrella rentals on the beach and no crowds. What you get in exchange is a peaceful stay on a beautiful beach, where you can actually see the stars at night and hear the waves. Anybody...

Aloha busytraveler325 You said it! A piece of paradise. We like to say “Unspoiled, Unplugged, and Unforgettable” I agree that watching the stars and enjoying the sound of the rolling waves on the beach is pretty amazing. We hope you can come back to unwind and recharge once again. A Hui Ho

We had 11 days in Kauai, so we split it between north and south shores. While we stayed in a perfectly fine place in Poipu, in retrospect we would have been happier staying at the Hanalei Colony Resort the entire trip. We were upgraded to an ocean-front unit; loved the layout, the breeze, the views, the whole thing. Special shouts-out...

We stayed in unit J1, premium oceanfront. Ocean is literally < 100 yards from our lanai - no units are closer. Spacious first floor condo with full kitchen. King bed. New furniture. Free shuttle to and from local beaches and restaurants in Hanalei.

We have been visiting HCR since 1989 and see how they keep getting better. Since our last visit, they finished remodeling all the units. All the furniture is new.
