We stayed in a premier ocean view room on the first floor and I would have to say that it was definitely worth the extra money. We woke up each day and went to sleep each evening with the most amazing ocean view and sounds of the waves crashing. We had our tea/coffee on the lanai each morning and we...

This resort lives up to its motto of "unplugged, unspoiled, unforgettable". The location is beautiful, the condo's are privately owned so I imagine they are all have slightly different decor etc. We stayed in a first floor condo with a balcony with sea views. It was spacious and beautifully furnished with cane furniture and colorful cushions and covers. There is...

We stayed here and attended a wedding at the resort. The restaurant is very good if not a bit expensive, but the secluded surroundings make the experience second to none. The resort is called the Hanalei colony resort but really the resort is as far north-west of Hanalei proper as possible, nestled right up to Haena. The pool is family...

My husband and I found Hanalei Colony Resort online and booked it last minute. I was leery as I did not have the time to read much about it, but after speaking to the hotel about their fall specials for ocean view units, we booked. We arrived the next afternoon. The staff was very nice. The place was PERFECT! We...

My husband and I recently stayed for 3 nights at the HCR and found it absolutley lovely! The location is amazing & set right on the beach. Our room size was huge and had nice decor and it was very clean. The bed was also huge & very comfy. To be honest, at first I was a little worried about...

This resort has a very interesting concept in that is a cross between a hotel and a short-term apartment/condominium rental. It has a very Hawaiian feel to it which is nice considering that you can hardly get that at many other hotels. Staff are very friendly and relaxed. The beach is not the best for swimming but great for sunbathing,...

The pro's are: The pictures on the website are accurate. The oceanfront units are very close to the ocean but not "on" the beach. The setting is beautiful. Close proximity to Tunnels Beach (best surfing in winter, best snorkeling in summer). Food at the only restaurant is very good but expensive even for Hawaii standards. The con's are: The beach,...

Not enough times does the advertising promise of a slogan match the actual reality that you experience. Fortunately we just experienced one that delivers 100%! The Hanalei Colony Resort on the North Shore of Kauai bills itself as “Unspoiled, Unplugged, and Unforgettable”. True, true, and true. The location is lush and peaceful with direct access to beaches and there is...

The sunset on the beach was lovely and the rock pools reflecting the light of the sunset! Seeing turtles was amazing in the water at sunset! The food at the restaurant was tasty and staff friendly. Our view from our room was great!

We had a second-floor ocean view room but still the ocean was only a rock throw to the beach. We were two fifty-something gals who have known each other since junior high school and still keep in touch even though we live on different coasts. The two bedroom, two bath set up was perfect for us. Days and nights were...
