Every time we come back to this amazing resort, we are impressed. The updates and renovations through the years are wonderful and HBR is the best it has been since we first came here almost 10 years ago. The view, of course, is so beautiful that photos never do it justice. The grounds are meticulously maintained and fit perfectly into...

Fabulous. Stayed in Ginger units. View was amazing. Book directly with the resort because they manage the units for owners and the resort. Don't be afraid to put in a couple requests when you book. You can't request a specific building or unit but we asked for a good view in a quiet area and got exactly that. They said...

If your looking for a relaxing stay with everything at your fingertips Hanalei Bay Resort is your place. The rooms were quiet, clean and the kitchens were very well equipped. The view of the Napali Coast and Ocean is amazing, the beach is a short walk, great restaurant and staff went out of their way to make your stay great!...

We loved our stay here and we'll be back. We would however book directly with an owner, just so you know which unit you end up with as some are not as nice as others. We love the north shore of Kauai and would spend much more time here if we could. Low-key beautiful place in paradise - it's hard...

Great location and views, wonderful property, and great staff. Very quiet, plenty to do locally by car or just walking around. Property has two pools and is very family and kid friendly. Wonderful complementary mai tai nights on Mondays!

You can sit on a lanai overlooking Hanalei Bay with a tray of fresh pineapple as you plan the day's activities. What will it be? Swimming at the pool, soaking in the hot tub, hearing the music in the bar every evening, a little tennis or catching the sunset at the beach as you dream of hiking the Na Pali...

This resort really feels like you are in paradise. We had a hotel room, 2nd floor. It had a coffee maker(thank goodness!) and a really old looking mini fridge that worked fine. Brought plastic cutlery and paper plates from home and enjoyed lovely breakfasts on the lanai. The view was incredible-green, jagged mountains, a glimpse of the ocean, and the...

Hi Edie. Thank you for taking the time to write such a complete review of your stay with us! We love our location here in paradise!

Amazing spot. You cannot get any better scenery than the front villas or condos at this resort. Tons of tennis courts, beautiful pools, great beach but best of all wonderful staff and a fabulous bar/restaurant. Loved this place and will definitely be back. Don't miss playing golf at Makai Golf Club - USA's most beautiful course!

HBR is the most beautiful resort on the North Shore with gorgeous landscaping and breathtaking views of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai in the distance. Large, well appointed rooms and tasteful furnishings. Two pools, tennis courts and a beach right below the resort offer plenty of recreational activities . The Happy Talk lounge is now open serving drinks and good...
