This resort is top notch. Beautiful grounds, great amenities, modern interiors, helpful staff, Snorkeling at their beach was excellent. The pool area is gorgeous and the swim up bar was delightful. Convenient to stores and activities. The view from our lanai was killer. Can't wait to go back.

Hanalei Bay Resort has a beautiful view from most rooms--however, ours was not one of them. Although it was a "condo" it was not what I think of as one. It was the second bedroom of the condo next to ours. We had a mini refrigerator and a coffee maker. Everyplace, like the pool or the bar, was a long...

It is easily the best spot on the north shore of Kauai. Air conditioned, beautiful grounds, incredible pool and fairly easy beach access. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai (Mt. McKana) is extraordinary and unmatched anywhere. Perfect sunset views.

We loved our stay in 4104, 5, and 6. This condo is the perfect combination of condo and hotel living. It offers peace, privacy, and space while also offering resort amenities like the pool, restaurant, shops, and hotel services. The views from all three lanais are breathtaking. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to cook. We...

We had a great time at Hanalei Bay Resort. The staff are very customer-oriented and helpful. The views of Hanalei Bay were tremendous. Especially loved sitting out on the grass near the tennis courts on the comfortable outdoor furniture to watch the beautiful sunset, and sitting on our deck overlooking the bay was very nice too. Excellent tennis facilities and...

My husband and I stayed in condo # 4221 at the Hanalei Bay Resort for the 3rd year in a row, and we love it every year just as much as before. Joan's condo is perfect- beautifully decorated and nicely upgraded with breakfast bar, and the view of the Bali Hai Mountain and Hanalei Bay that is no less than...

We booked based on what we saw on TripAdvisor which was a bedroom with a QUEEN size bed. Upon arrival, we found our bed was actually a sofa bed. When we explained to the Hanalei Bay Resort staff, their response was "take it up with TripAdvisor" so here we are. Other than that, I will add that the room view...

Stunning resort grounds with a nice view regardless of where you are in the resort. We were located in one of the rooms furthest from the beach access however had a stunning mountain view with cascading waterfalls every morning with breakfast on the lanai. We booked the one bedroom suite, which was effectively an interconnecting hotel room and studio side...

We stayed eleven nights in this one bed unit and were so pleased with the view and the proximity to the beach path as well as laundry and ice. I understand that 4106 connects to 4105 and 4104 so we plan to return with family real soon! The resort is the most beautiful on the north shore and we PREFER...

The staff was warm and welcoming. Central location for parking, then you literally hike to your unit. Bell Service if offered via golf cart, but that is a tipping situation as far as I am concerned. And the walk is not easy to some of the units, I was in Plumeria, stiff hike up hill, but again I am 67....
