Virtually all of the resorts/hotels in this area are in Princeville, down a two mile road that turns off from the main highway (St. Regis is near the end). The Hanalei Colony resort is approximately four or five miles past the town of Hanalei. The road is an interesting one, with twists and turns, and a lot of one lane...

I was scheduled to stay here last February, but had to turn the reservation over to my kids at the last minute. They raved about the place, so on my next visit to Kauai, I resolved to stay here. That was a great decision. No TV, radio, telephones or newspapers, so if you want, you can let your stresses go...

Well for starters there wasn't really a good check in were they weren't very helpful and not much to do while waiting for the room. When you first went into the room it was all " Wow look at this view" But then when you started settling in you started to notice things like how the kitchen was extremely tiny...

To start - we own a small rustic motel and are in the tourism business so we have a certain expectation of customer service when we travel. Our motel is dated and lacks a lot of amenities so that never bothers us. But we want to be treated right at all times. We arrived at the hotel at noon after...

We had a great time staying at hanalei colony resort the last week of December. Staff were nice and helpful, the location was wonderful. It felt like we were living how Kauai should be experience - ocean outside your door, wonderful breeze, spacious room, wonderful bed and kitchen area. Way more of a remote feel than the big resorts of...

We stayed at HCR from December 9th-22nd in a Premium Ocean Front condo. Our condo was right in front of the ocean and we woke up to the sound of the ocean and an endless panoramic view of the ocean. The staff was great. HCR is truly paradise.

Remote, dramatic, intense...being just feet from the surf when the winter swells are at there finest! I'm a Pro Photographer and have done many shoots on Kauai over the years...setting a tripod and long lens on my porch at HCR would equal some of my best locations ever! My wife (a marine biologist) literally wept upon walking in the suite......

Aloha KingSanDiego It is so nice that you appreciate the new upgrades and remodeling at the resort. It is hard to explain how beautiful the view is of the ocean so you will all have to come and see for yourselves. Thank you for your great comments and can’t wait to host you again next year.

We completely loved Hanalei Colony Resort. Our room was 15 feet from the waves, looking right at the nearby bay! This is the way Hawaii should be: ocean breezes (no A/C), waves splashing and crashing as they lull you to sleep. Quaint set of buildings grouped around a small stream and right on the beach. (Beach is not safe for...
