“2 weeks of paradise in a 2 br condo”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Accommodations are newly refurbished, all new high-end appliances, found there was nothing that we needed for comfort, for cooking and sleeping that was not already provided for!

Staff were remarkable, getting us to the right tourist activities, helping us with all our requests, friendly.

Cleanliness was the best. Top tennis resort (in the top 75 in the US....a great pro on location;
Pool fantastic for the family. We are thinking of celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary next year!

Next spring (2014) will even be better with the opening of their new restaurant (previously destroyed by a fire).

We were delighted with condo 6303 for a four day stay on the North coast of Kauai. With only the two of us, we did not even use the loft but the high ceilings gave a real feeling of spaciousness. This is a very roomy condo which increased the feel of luxury. The views with the sunsets over Hanalei Bay were all we imagined.

We have stayed many times at this resort and never get tired of returning. The resort offers all the comforts you can ask for in a most beautiful surrounding of tropical plants, birds, water and mountains that is perfectively maintained. We particularly enjoyed our stay at unit 9123. We found the unit well equipt, spacious, with modern furniture, kitchen appliances and up-to-date TV and DVD player. What was particular appealing to my wife and myself was sitting out on the lanai and enjoying the spectacular view.

Spent a week at this resort in a timeshare exchange. Resort is in a beautiful location with very friendly staff and great amenities. Pool and beach are fantastic. Unfortunately the welcome center and restaurant are STILL under renovation - will they ever be finished?? Our two bedroom two bath unit was very large and had a nice view of the bay and mountains even though it was on the ground floor. It did need renovation and redecorating though as the bathroom and kitchen fixtures were vintage 1980's and some wallpaper was peeling. Town of Hanalei is only a few minutes drive and had several good restaurants and shops. Many good, uncrowded beaches nearby as well. Overall a terrific visit for first time visitors to Hawaii/Kauai.

Room Tip: Make sure unit has been renovated and is on a high floor.

Sadly, we just returned from a 10-day visit here, our first time. I can only imagine how great it is when the lobby/bar/restaurant amenities are back in service (reconstruction due to fire) estimated May 2014. It's pretty great even without it!. We loved the property--beautiful grounds and pool, helpful and caring staff, terrific views. We even got a few days of tennis in!
Be aware that this resort has many components: timeshares and privately owned units so make sure you know what you're getting! We rented a wonderful dead on view unit of Bali Hai (Mt Makana) that promised upgrades and "full kitchen." This was not accurate. I like to make meals on vacation so this was a sticking point as the sink was a bar sink, the countertops for prep very limited, appliances older. The bedspread on the king was ripping at the seams, the carpet needed to be changed out many moons ago, etc.The beds were quite comfortable! We got past it, but just not at all what we thought it would be even after several conversations with the owner!
On the other hand, my sister and her husband rented a unit that was just rehabbed beyond measure.Just gorgeous! It had a table to accommodate six so needless to say we shared some of our meals there---and she doesn't even like cooking on vacation!!
We will return but will take greater care in unit choice. If you like to email me, I will tell you the unit we rented.

The first time we saw the view we knew this is the place we wanted to return to forever. Overlooking Hanalei Bay this home to the movie "South Pacific" has all the nostalgia at a very affordable price. Many units have been completely remodeled and the rest are in process. The management and staff are here to serve and make your stay "Da Kine". (The Best). Get a two bedroom unit if you can as they all have ocean views. Pick banana's outside your room, coconuts, papaya's, mango's are all for the picking. Right next door you can stay at the St Regis for 3 times more money. We share the same beach with them.

Room Tip: All two bedroom units have an ocean view overlooking Hanalei Bay. I like the third floor as they ha...
