Great Basic Condo at a Wonderful Property!

We loved our stay at the Hanalei Bay Resort! The property was a Hawaiian heaven. The beach down below was perfect for sunbathing and snorkeling. The new bar "Happy Talk" was excellent to catch happy hour or watch a game overlooking the property. The pool and Jacuzzi was perfect to soak in. Would have loved to use the gym facilities but ran out of time. Loved the nearby quirky town of Hanalei and the great restaurants, farmers markets, boutique shops, etc. Hiked the Napali coast which was a short scenic drive. We didn't get a single drop of rain. This unit is very basic but clean. Updated kitchenette area which was useful. Bathroom could use some updates but everything worked great and served it's purpose. Bed was super comfy. View of the valley/mountain from the balcony was gorgeous. Our only complaint is that the shower could use a new curtain as it smelled like a sweaty gym locker room. Overall a great home base at a wonderful property that we will visit again on our next trip to Kauai. Thanks for having us!
Comfortable and spacious

HBR 1526 is a very spacious studio. The bed and pillows are very comfortable, and it is nice to have a dining table and chairs, and full counter for "kitchen" prep (although have to use sink in bathroom). Do your research; most HBR studios do not have the dining table and chairs, and have very small prep space. The location is private and serene, with the lush tropical landscaping and mountain views, easy access to main building and pool. The Aloha Condos staff was very responsive. When we arrived there was only one towel and one washcloth for the 8 days, so I called and even though housekeeping staff had left for the day, she came back and took care of the problem.The not so great details? The tub didn't drain well; in fact, the "closer" didn't work at all so you can't fill up the tub to take a bath. The grout around the tub needs to be replaced, it is stained and unsightly. Otherwise, the bathroom is fine; good showerhead. There could be some type of drawers added under the sink; that would be a nice touch. The large upholstered chair in the living space was beautiful to look at and very comfortable, but had a strong musty/mildew smell so I couldn't sit in it. I have allergies to that type of thing. Nice beach items - cooler, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards. There was also a welcome basket that was a nice touch.Overall, a good stay.

We stayed for 9 nights in April and it was wonderful. The studio was spacious, clean, and well-equipped with everything we needed. It was nice to see that there were plates, bowls, glasses, utensils, a microwave, a toaster oven, a little fridge, and lots of beach gear available for use. It is also close to the parking lot, which is a nice touch. While there are more updated units at this place, the price was right and our stay was extremely comfortable. Can't wait to stay again!
We are so glad you had a wonderful stay as that is what we hope for with each guest! We are happy to hear you felt that the unit was well-equipped and had everything you needed. We do strive to make each unit accommodating and comfortable. The affordable price makes this unit a real bonus. Please come back again!

The Hanelei Bay Resort was the perfect place to take a real nice vacation from the hustle and bustle of big city life. This location in Princeville is ideal for families that is looking for tons of water, hiking, tennis and other fun activities. This location, I consider high end like a country club with all amenities. Close to supermarkets and restaurants for everyday needs. Super Like!!!
Thank you for your review and taking the time to post! The Hanalei Bay Resort is a special place and the island does have lots of fun activities to experience. The island is a very serene and relaxing atmosphere and certainly is a place to unwind. Thank you again for your review!
Excellent Value - Very pleased!

I was lucky to get this place during the crazy 2015 Christmas/NYE holiday week, and felt like I hit the jackpot. There are obviously nicer accommodations on the island and along the north shore, but they are absurdly expensive. HBR 1526 is PLENTY adequate for almost anybody. I reviewed every lodging option imaginable and found this to be the best value by a mile. Nice people, very clean and well equipped room (TV, entertainment, kitchen, etc.), easy check-in/out and good location within Princeville. The management group is top-notch and helped me out a lot. It was great to not need a full-week reservation which is common during this high traffic time period. The thing to consider about this unit is that it's a hybrid of hotel and condo. The kitchen area is well stocked but small. You get a toaster, microwave, mini-fridge and full set of housewares. The TV has lots of channels, DVD and stereo. The bathroom has all the necessities and stuff for the beach including chairs and even boogie boards. The unit is smaller, so if you plan to spend a lot of time in the room, a.) you're visiting the wrong island and b.) this unit might be too small. It wasn't for us- it was the perfect size for a base of daily excursions and fun. The famous HBR restaurant is still closed after all this time, which is tragic and frankly inexcusable. But that's not the fault of this unit- it should be ready winter 2016.. The patio is great and the view of the mountains is beautiful. I would definitely stay here again, or recommend for anyone who is looking for value in their Kauai accommodations.
good 1 bedroom unit in Princeville
Reviewed by Matthew
Overall we were very pleased with our stay here.The room: very nice, the interior is well-furnished and it's basically like a nice hotel room. There is a limited kitchenette with microwave, toaster oven, and small fridge. No stove. Good enough for keeping perishables and drinks cold and toasting up a bagel in the morning. The unit has small coolers, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and a boogie board which was unexpected and really great. I did lot of searching in Princeville/Hanalei and this was the best value for a one bedroom I could find, it's a great deal for the area. The view of the mountains is spectacular. It's extremely close to the parking which we liked since we were frequently leaving to visit sights and restaurants. The resort: The pool is very nice.The beach at the bottom of the hill is literally "picture-perfect" for viewing sunsets off the Napali coast, probably the best sunset spot on the island (besides the St. Regis bar which is directly above and you can access directly from this beach). We did not use the tennis courts but they looked well-maintained. The landscaping/grounds on the property are really nice. The downside: it did become annoying having to drive out for dinner every night, which was the only option with no restaurant on-site or a more full kitchen. Also most restaurants in Princeville are at resorts (overpriced) or at the shopping center (not good) so we drove into Hanalei most nights. That got old. The daily construction in progress on the restaurant/bar was also distracting, it is right next to the main pool. Those were the only issues I had, we still had a great stay and amazing trip, and loved the north shore.

We enjoyed our 12 day stay at Hanalei Bay Resort. The only concerns were the A/C noise from the lanai because the adjacent unit kept it running around the clock, the construction mess, and the main access to our unit's building being through the resort's service and garbage area. Otherwise it is a beautiful setting and location. Thanks !
Perfect on a budget
Reviewed by Julia H
My family stayed in this room for one night. It had a comfortable King bed, and a twin pullout that was also comfy. The kitchenette had everything we needed, just bring your own food and drinks. It was quiet with a nice mountain view. We took the back way in to the building which isn't the nicest part of the property, but once you are in the room it makes no difference. probably be more economical if you stayed for more than a few nights since there is a cleaning fee. This was a great room to have if you are on a budget. The manager was very accommodating, giving us an early check in and a late check out. Mahalo!
Thank you for posting a review for unit 1526 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. It is always helpful to get feedback from our guests so that we can make sure our guests have a pleasant vacation. It is good to hear you had all that you needed and the rate was very reasonable. The back entrance to this unit is a shorter route which most guests seem to opt for but it can be accessed by going through the resort and around for a more scenic experience.
We hope you can come back again! Thank you for staying with us!
Aloha and Mahalo

We loved Hanalei Bay Resort. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The grounds were immaculate and lush. We loved waking up to an amazing view of the mountains and hearing all the birds from our lanai. The seats for viewing the sunset were spectacular. We can't imagine staying elsewhere.

We moved into Condo #1526 for the last 2 nights of our trip (stayed in another condo for the first 11 nights). We were apprehensive about moving to this condo, having been in a very nice condo (#4324), but at least we were still at HBR. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious this studio felt. It felt actually bigger than our other unit.There is a nice sized bar/countertop area (that the other condo #4324) did not have, which made preparing snacks, drinks etc much easier. Additionally, the fridge was bigger than we had in the other unit. Although we missed the ocean view, we actually enjoyed the quiet mountain view. We did not have neighbors the first night, however we could tell the difference the 2nd night. We could definitely hear more voices and talking and banging sounds from next door, and above us (something we did not experience in #4324), however it didn't detract too much from our experience. The bed felt very comfortable also. For the lower cost of this unit,we felt it was a great value. If you are uncomfortable with any sounds from units above or next to you, you may not like this unit as much, but it didn't bother us much since we were so tired at the end of the day anyway. Some people do not like that the parking for this bldg. leads you past the maintenance/trash area, but we didn't mind. we actually appreciated parking closer to our unit and we liked waving to our friendly golf cart and maintenance crew anyway. Very nice people. We did notice that the microwave turning plate did not spin, causing the contents to cook unevenly, burning on one side. There is a nice toaster oven though, which we didn't have in the other unit. Also something that is nice is that the toilet is in a separate room (can close the door), from a large dressing/vanity/sink area, which gives the feeling of added space as well. If on a budget and want a descent place, this would be a good choice. We loved the resort, - the pool/jacuzzi is amazing. People very friendly.

My husband and I stayed in this condo during June of 2012. We were travelling with other family members, but their condo was to small, so we rented this one as well. We liked the beach access (with fairly decent snorkeling)and our daughter loved the pool. The staff were very friendly and took care to assist us with my mother-in-law who has some physical disabilities. We would stay here again.
A really nice place to base yourself on kauai
Reviewed by Kim
This simple but tastefully decorated and comfortable condo was the ideal accomodation for which to base ourselves while exploring Kauai. The kitchenette was ample and had everything we needed, the bed large and comfortable. The only shortcoming was the common doorway to the adjacent condo which was to enable a large family to use both units if needed, although entry was not possible between units during our stay we did experience quite audible conversations from the other guests next door, sometimes in the early hours of the morning. This might be easily fixed with a fitted peice of 'foam' insulation that could be left in the door space when not being used as a thoroughfare? Apart from that, it is a very comfortable unit that I would highly recommend to others. The staff at the Hanalei Bay Resort were excellent.

Was not aware of $25 check in fee until my final payment had been made. Because I am slightly disabled,the stairs were very difficult for me and I was unable to use any of the resort amenities for which we paid a daily use fee. I would have looked at other properties if I had known of the stairs (especially) and the use fees for things I could not have used. We found the room clean and very nice although it is somewhat odd that one has to wash dishes in the bathroom as there is no sink in the kitchenette.I would recommend this place to others if the stairs didn't bother them, but would not (could not) rent this property again.
Great location, Value, with minor Flaws
Reviewed by A FlipKey verified reviewer
Great spot and excellent Price. Rooms are a little too close together which means you can hear you neighbours' conversations (and they yours). A little too isolated from food given the distance of the shopping centre and high cost of the St Regis. Need to get that restaurant running, especially for Breakfast. Other than that, this place is great.
