We have a two bedroom and two bath timeshare at beautiful Hanalei Bay Resort. Units are renovated and best views in Kauai. Staff and amenities are outstanding. Golf carts help you to get around because cars are parked away from units.

We loved Hanalei Bay resort. We had a condo with a 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a comfortable king size bed. The view from our room was incredible. The grounds of the resort are beautiful. Overall a wonderful experience. The only knock I have is that the furnishing in our room (the sofa/bed and chair in the front room)...

I stayed in a condo with friends. We had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living area and kitchen. We had a lanai with a beautiful view of Hanalei Bay and the sunset every evening. The resort has two swimming pools and a wonderful hot tub. The pools were warm and very enjoyable. We did not have too much trouble...

My friend and I stayed here for a few nights and fell in love with every aspect of the resort. Our room was immaculate and had everything we needed. The pools were pristine and charming and the location was A++++. We will never stay anywhere else when we visit Kauai. The restaurant/bar was also amazing. The food was delicious and...

We checked into the Hanalei Bay resort at about 9:30pm after traveling for 10 hours. We were tired, thirsty and hungry. They let us know there was no place we could get food or drinks - no restaurant, room service, not even a vending machine for a bottle of water. They told us to drive our rental car to the...

The grounds are lovely, pool feels like swimming in nature, with water falls, rocks but the bonus of a pool bar you can swim up to. Beautiful views of the inland mountains and Hanalei Bay. Great grassy lawn to watch the sunset. Spacious lanais, comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen. Uniquely stocked gift and sundry shop. Convenient to great snorkeling. We...

We are annual regulars at the Hanalei Bay Resort and social tennis players. The tennis clinic led by Don Becker is absolutely the best -- part of the Peter Burwash International tennis family! The courts are wonderful, especially the artificial grass/sand combination that are impact forgiving and frequently make the sporadic rain showers of Hawaii a non-issue for avid tennis...
