Very, very steep walks around the property and extremely steep path to the beach. The condo we rented via VRBO had a fantastic view of Hanalei Bay. If you rent here, I'd highly recommend renting a unit with a view of the bay. The resort utilizes golf carts to drive around the visitors; you call for a ride & it's...

I was delighted by this property as it is absolutely gorgeous. Lobby is beautiful with lots of native materials, a great koi pond kinda dealie with very well thought out lighting and beautiful pottery, etc. The Happy Talk bar was fun although I think the 10 huge TV screens are a bit much. Screens screen everywhere and no where to...

Pros: Hanalei Bay Resort is situated in a enchanting location on the beach. Amazing views all around. The appartments are spacious well-appointed and thorough equipped. Cons: I dare to suggest to the managament to improve the customer service and the cleanliness. Changing towels / bedding only once a week in the rooms is totally insufficient.

Our first trip to Kauai and we chose to stay at Hanalei Bay Resort. The resort consists of condominiums that have been converted into hotel rooms. We stayed in a suite designed to sleep four and it was very spacious. A full size kitchen with all small appliances provided in the room. It had an amazing view across Hanalei bay...

Although the roosters can be vocal, they make Kaua'i the unique place it is! All of your comments are appreciated and we do hope that you will become regular visitors!

We have been to this resort 3 times and keep coming back. It is truly one of our favorite spots to stay on the island. The pool and gardens are incredible with views to please. The staff is friendly and helpful. Very impressed in every way. Great vibe here!

TripAdvisor won't let us tag the correct date, but we actually stayed here in September 2015. I never got round to writing a review and felt guilty ever since. The grounds and surrounding areas are beautiful and the views are incredible. We stayed in 4222 at first, and the owner Joan was wonderful to deal with. Apartment was spotless and...

Aloha Jonathan and better late than never they always say. Thanks for writing such a nice review about the two privately owned condos you stayed in.

The newly updated room had a fantastic view of Hanalei bay. Kitchen was stocked with great cookware and all the amenities were new. The grounds were beautiful with the new pool and tennis courts (some of the courts are even grass). I'd say my best resort-like experience so far..
