This property is well deserving on a fantastic review Located in such an amazing, secluded and unique location, this was such an unforgettable experience I was simply puzzled as to why guests would rate this property, as other than amazing. Each condo is privately owned, so perhaps there is some variance. Ours was absolutely first class. We were fortunate enough...

The views from this resort are beautiful and give you direct access to an amazing beach. It is nice this resort is off of the beaten path and is I believe is the last resort on the road on this side of the island. While the views are great and the rooms are very nice we had a few other...

We had a great time at this super-chill condo rental on the north coast of Kauai. It couldn't be a more lovely and lush tropical setting, and the accommodations were great - roomy, comfy, convenient. Staff super nice & courteous, too.

Loved the location of the resort. We stayed in the ocean front suite in building B, really wanted to stay in the premier ocean front but was not available. You still get a great ocean front view but you are not directly on the beach like the premiere rooms. Really private rooms and grounds, doesn't feel like you are in...

Aloha catchancatchan, We are very sorry that our Premium Ocean Front Suites were not available. We have a very limited supply of these and they do sell out fast! It was nice to read that our "unplugged" resort allowed you to relax and that your could feel our aloha. Thank you for taking the time to write. P.S. It's never...

We came to Kauai on our 10 year anniversary trip and the Hanalei Colony Resort was the perfect place to stay! Beautiful location that was quiet and right on the beach. The sounds of the waves all week was dreamy! The rooms are clean and decorated well. They are perfect for couples but can fit up to four people. They...

After doing extensive research about where to stay in Kauai we landed on HCR because of the lush grounds and the beach. From the airport it took us over an hour to drive to HCR but the drive is gorgeous and slowly becomes more and more Jurassic Park-like. Knowing there would be a kitchen we stopped at the market in...

HCR is absolutely amazing and we can not wait to return. Our room was so comfortable and the views are amazing. The grounds are beautiful. The pool/ jacuzzi/ BBQ area are perfect. The location could not be better. Way better than any big resort. Perfectly quite.

After having to cancel a previous visit to Maui for our 25th Anniversary due to Hurricane Sandy and an desire to visit our son in San Diego with an extended trip to Hawaii for our 29th Anniversary I decided on Kauai since I had read about how it was not as commercial as the other islands and provided a more...

I come to Kauai because I want to getaway, relax, unplug, and experience an easier way of life for a few days. I want comfort and service but I don't want fussy. I want convenience but I don't want to be in a touristy spot. I also really want to feel close to nature. I have found exactly what I...
