Hanalei Colony Resort was everything we hoped it would be: comfortable, relaxing, and quiet. This is the perfect spot if you want a true retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed the lulling sound of the surf from our suite - and talk about gorgeous views! WOW! The rooms are handsomely and comfortably furnished and feature full kitchens. Not that I love cooking...

We just returned from a week at HCR. Upon arrival, we were notified that the roof had recently been replaced and they were still finishing the roofing work. Every day, we had to listen to lots of drilling and banging. You absolutely could not take a nap during the day. Then we received notification that they would be pumping the...

This is a great place to stay on the North side of the island. It is among the last lodgings before the road runs out at Ke'e Beach and it is very remote from the big box resort style of Princeville and Poipu. It is as close to the beach as you can get and the views are amazing. A...

I booked this property thinking, from the name, it was on Hanalei Bay. My mistake I guess, but in case anyone else is thinking the same, this is at the far North Western end of the beaches along this coast and is on Hamoa Beach. So you can't go to Hanalei Beach - which is stunning - without a 10...

I love the Hanalei Colony Resort. I have stayed here multiple times and always look forward to coming back. You feel like you are in the comfort of your own home. The rooms are condo style with a full kitchen and everything you need to cook a meal. You can hear the ocean waves crashing from almost every where in...

We booked a unit that was advertised as having two bedrooms. What that really meant was a king bed in one corner, and a couch and roll away in the other corner. Both could be closed off by screens, but really...it was by no stretch of the imagination a two bedroom unit. That being said, it was ocean front, with...

Aloha Pazduha, Thank you for writing a review of Hanalei Colony Resort. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for any confusion as to our suite layouts. This is how our website and booking engine refers to the room: "Two Bedrooms (both bedrooms are informally enclosed with sliding wooden louver doors for maximum airflow)".

We just returned from 9 days at the Hanalei Colony Resort; the photos of the rooms were misleading, the rooms were dirty, and the complex was very noisy. Approximately $380/night provided rooms with a partial ocean view and the septic field in the centre grounds, which to was say in the least was extremely disappointing. This is a summary of...

This is the place to be if you want to unwind, relax and disconnect (though they do have decent wifi in the rooms!) The trade winds are always blowing, but we only had a single afternoon of rain during our stay. Empty beaches, rolling surf and a quiet road keep you feeling like this is your own special place. We...
