Paradise on earth...but remote especially in the rain! Booked not realizing how far away from nearest town,restaurant,shops,etc. on steep,winding,one-way bridge roads this beautiful resort was. Unfortunately, we were unable to stay so far away and management went above and beyond to help us save our trip. Mahalo to all! That being said, for the one night we were there, our...

First off let me say that this location is private, isolated, quiet and peaceful. The Hanalei Colony Resort is at the end of the road on the north shore therefore you will need a car. If you are hoping for nightlife, restaurants and such, you will have to travel out to Princeville (10 mins. away), Kappa (40 mins. away) or...

This was a fabulous place to stay. The staff is extremely friendly. The setting is beautiful. It's a great place for families. Good restaurant on site. Loved sitting on the porch and drinking coffee at the art gallery cafe. One criticism, the pool was cold and small and the hottub had a strange odor. We will definitely stay there again.

This is our second time to the resort (having been married here 11 years ago) and nothing really has changed in the meantime - which is great - as the beauty of the place is its location. Yes, you're at the mercy of the weather (there's been high surf advisories every day we've been here so the snorkelling that we...

We have stayed at Hanalei Colony Resort multiple times now, and it is one of my favorite places on Earth. The setting is beautiful, our room had the most incredible view, and the service is second to none. We have eaten at the onsite restaurant (delicious!!!), and we have had beachside massages (need I say more?). The resort is secluded...

We are a family with 2 small children and have traveled the world as owners of timeshares and marriott points. Well, HCR tops all the 5 stars, hands down with its 10 feet location to the beach and some of the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii (Captain Cook on Big Island is only location better, IMO). Snorkeling is tougher...

My boyfriend and I came to Kauai for a week and stayed at Hanalei Colony Resort. Location was great, right outside of the small town center and they have a convenient guest shuttle service that takes you back/forth and Rick the driver gives great suggestions for hot spots. I loved the small coffee shop on the premise, the easy beach...

This was our 2nd visit to HCR, and honestly it would be hard to have our last experience get any better. For the price, I suspect we will start scouting other locations from now on, we shall see. Our unit H-3 has fantastic ocean views, but VERY little privacy. At night you have to close all the blinds, unless you...

This was my second stay at HCR. The recent reviews are spot on; it's a gorgeous spot and quite comfortable. But one hopes, for the price, that the stay will be flawless. The property is nearly 50 years old and has all the foibles associated with aging buildings. We stayed in C2 and it has a plumbing issue in the...

The geographic location relative to Tunnels Beach for surfing and 2.5 mile walk to Ke'e Trailhead are unmatched for a resort stay. Hanalei is only 7 miles away, and the ready shuttle service makes it easy to create choices for group activity desires. Also, the shuttle drivers are friendly, helpful and seem to genuinely care about guests. The coffee shop...
