Recently spent 6 nights at HCR. A little apprehensive on booking given the unplugged nature of the property and all the comments re it's "remoteness" I arrived a couple of hours early after a really nice drive from Lihue and the room wasn't ready...no problem, the friendly check in staff gave me a voucher for a coffee, and I then...

It's hard to put into words the experience of staying at the Hanalei Colony Resort . . . . except pure paradise! We stayed in J4, ocean front, and the view was unbelievable. The accommodations were perfect for us: spacious with updated furniture and kitchen, and friendly, helpful staff! The Resort was quiet and relaxing and close to the places...

Aloha Cindy M “Nestled on a secluded stretch of golden beach, Hanalei Colony’s forty eight condominium suites provide modern comforts with full kitchens and private lanais, without distractions of telephones and television.” We are happy to hear that you had a relaxing time and we would love for this to your home away from home.

Very efficient and helpful staff from reservations, reception to housekeeping. Book an oceanfront apartment if available! It is located near the end of the road, but day trips to the canyon side or Poipu are dooable. Hanalei has lots to do and a lovely beach.

Calm serene location on the beach with stunning views (if you book "ocean view" ). We were in one of 7 two-story buildings forming a U shaped courtyard open onto the ocean. Each unit on the second floor has a nice sized balcony facing the courtyard (both the ocean as well as the balconies of the other units - so...

Aloha MYJH Mahalo nui loa for taking your time to write this review. The Hanalei Colony Resort is off the beaten path and on the ocean side of the north shore. It is nice and quiet with the rolling waves in the background. We are happy you liked the rooms and hope to see you next year. A Hui Ho

You definitely feel remote here… and that’s the point. Very quiet and relaxing. No noise issues with the neighbors, and it was wonderful to sleep with the windows open and hearing the waves. No phones and television, but complimentary wi-fi and good mobile reception if you still need to have contact with the outside world. Decent pool, but it’s completely...

Our stay was wonderful. We were upgraded to an oceanfront room which was very unexpected and very welcome. The room was perfect, we had absolutely no complaints.
