I borrowed the tag line for the resort because it described our trip perfectly. This resort is not completely unplugged, because they offer WiFi, which I found to be very reliable. The unplugged part is that there are no TVs in the room, which was AWESOME. We certainly didn't need a TV when the views of the ocean from our...

We've been to Kauai many times before and wanted to concentrate on the North Shore this trip so chose the Hanalei Colony Resort--I've had it on my radar for many years. Our condo was a oceanfront two bedroom (one with a queen bed and the second with two pull out twins-not comfortable for adults) and very spacious with two full...

Or family of four stayed in J1, an oceanfront two bedroom. I thought we'd miss having AC, but we did not. The ocean breeze really was ideal. We did not miss the TV either. I would not call the Wi-fi spotty as others have, it just makes your sign in repeatedly. It was sufficient for the kids to stream Netflix...

If you want conveniently located lodgings from with to see all of Kauai, Hanalei Colony Resort is not for you. If you want to be immersed in the rugged, lush beauty of the North Shore of Kauai and don't mind a 10 minute drive into town, then you will love it here. We certainly did. We loved that three of...

If you love to camp outdoors, then you will love this place. If you cannot tolerate camping and need everything to be sparkling clean and new, as well as can't let got of modern day amenities, then this is not a place for you. Our unit seemed to be the last one to be updated. As we walked by the...

We recently stayed for 5 nights with my husband and 9 year old daughter. We were in an ocean view room, 2nd floor. The unit was very spacious and clean. The views amazing! The kitchen was well stocked for anything you might need. The bathrooms were a bit rustic, but again, clean and no complaints. The king size bed was...

My wife and stayed here with our teen age son and his friend. We had a garden view but were still able to see the ocean from our Lanai. The unit was simple but had everything we needed including a small kitchen that had all the pots, pans and utensils that we needed. They have two nice gas grills at...

We loved this place. We stayed in an oceanfront unit on the ground floor. There's no a/c, but we did not need it in late June, because the tradewinds kept the place very cool, if a bit humid. The real-life white noise of the surf made for uninterrupted sleep despite all the windows staying open all the time. The beach...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. I was perfect for us. I like the fact that it wasn't a mega resort and you really got the feel of Kauai and the north shore. There was an nice ocean breeze every night so we slept with windows and door open -- no need for AC. The rooms itself...

We spent 2 weeks here and we want to go back! We did our research, and, while all the resorts sound fabulous, we are not really resort people. We also ended up focusing on the North Shore, just because it seemed (and is) quieter and more laid back than other areas of Kauai. We searched through listings on VRBO, then...
