Everything was as expected, but I really enjoyed the nice surprises. The gift basket upon arrival was nice. Also the snorkeling and tennis equipment made it easy to enjoy the beach and the rest of the facilities. Definitely a great stay and the room was beautiful with a great view.

The condo is very nice, well maintained and equiped. It is very confortable for 2 people and has a perfect lanai with superb views of the mountains. The resrt is being renewed so front office is not the best and there are construction materials all over the way between the entrance and parking lot and the condo. It would have been better to be able to park at the condo entrance instead of a general parking but I guess considering the terrain that s not quite possible.

A Week in Paradise!

Hanalei Bay resort is in Princeville, on the northern shores of beautiful Kauai. We arrived very late, after a 20-hr journey from our home state of Pennsylvania. The front desk was friendly and accommodating. A bellman loaded our things into a golf cart, drove us to our condo, and helped unload all our stuff into the room. We stayed in building 15, 2nd (top) floor, condo 1557. It's a 1-room condo, but the room is large and feels very spacious. From our lanai we could see a jungle to the left and then a beautiful mountain range which is home of the Waioli Falls, the longest waterfall on e...

Unit 1557 at the Hanalei Bay Resort was a true gem! So peaceful, with a panoramic view of nature at it's best. In the morning, we would wake to the most beautiful bird songs. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning, taking in the view of the valley, the mountains, birds, flowers, and waterfalls. The room is cozy and comes furnished with most anything you could need while vacationing at the beach - cooler, beach chairs, tennis rackets, and (some) snorkel gear. Had it not been for the snorkel gear in the condo, I would never had given it a try...snorkeling in Hawaii was a wonderful expe...

I rarely write reviews but since I read over 100 just to rent 1557 for 2 nights I felt that I needed to report back. I will say that the other reviews were helpful especially about the resort itself. There were no surprises other than the amazing king bed the condo had. I chose this condo for 2 main reason's, the price and also the responses I read from the owner himself. He answered everyone's complaints and seemed to take care of any problems immediately I was very impressed with his concern for the comfort of his guests. I will say that the reason I'm giving the 4 stars instead of 5 are...

Nice place for a short stay. The limited kitchen facilities would make longer stays challenging. Had to defrost the refer upon arrival as the freezer compartment was completely encased in ice. Hbr is a great resort, well managed with a wonderful pool and beach access.

Aloha Dave:

Thank you for the heads up and for your review and stay. The cleaners now have included a check of the freezer compartment in the fridge to make sure that future guests don't have this happen to them.

We were pleasantly surprised upon entering room 1557. The unit was spacious for a studio and the bathroom space was more than adequate. We stepped onto the balcony and immediately fell in love with the gorgeous views. We sat outside every morning to eat our breakfast. The grounds are nice and 1557 is a short walk to the pool, tennis courts, and the front desk. We were told to request a golf cart ride to the beach but we decided to walk instead. It's a nice walk down but a bit of a steep walk up. The beach is shared with the resort next door and is definitely worth a visit. Be sure to bring ...

Thank you for your review. I agree that my condo is a great place for people looking for serenity and beauty on Kauai.

Sorry about your experience with the ants and that does happen if any food is left out. They will be out to let you know that the counters are yet clean! Nevertheless I will stock some ant traps in the condo as well as find out from resort management about treatments happening with the building.

* Update November 13 - Resort management says that the ant problem is resort wide issue recently and they are working to solve it.

When I did the remodel to put in the small kitchenette there was no easy way to put in a sink, so you do have to do your dishes in the bathroom. I will stop by this month and take a look at some ways to make that easier for guests.

Again thank you for your stay and review

garden view rocked

Reviewed by j and i

Date 10/11/2012

Welcome respite after 3 nights of camping. We loved the privacy, the super high ceilings and inspiring view of the Na Pali mountain coast. It had everything we needed. Bed was fabulously comfortable (but creaky!) Like other folks said the walls are thin- if you have the aC on, you may not notice. Also, somewhat lacking in the type of surface you can make a sandwich on- but we managed with the small cutting boards provided. We had a great time- it worked just fine for our needs. We would rent 1557 again. Mahalo!

We had a wonderful 3 week stay in Kauai and were so fortunate to have found HBR and unit 1557! The unit was very clean, quiet, and the furniture and decor a great combination of sumptuous "island style" luxury. Everything was updated and remodeled, and we felt like royalty! All the details were taken care of, down to the closet full of beach chairs, body boards, and all we needed to enjoy our days at the ocean. We loved the HBR grounds, the pool area is amazing with a nice sand bottomed wading pool for the kids and a beautiful hot-tub for the adults... Princeville is the perfect place to en...

This room is a great size for two if you don't want or need a full kitchen for cooking and groceries. The view is spectacular, overlooking the mountains with a waterfall running down the middle one. With the sliding glass doors open you feel like you are in a tree house with the landscape of tropical trees below. The room is comfortable and nicely appointed except for the squeaky bed. If you are a light to medium sleeper beware, the bedframe squeaks with every movement. It kept us up longer as we were trying to fall asleep with the the noises.

Any thoughts of a great resort quickly slide away as you are delivered to condo 1557. The golf cart takes you by the staff break alcove, the garbage dumpsters, the resort laundry, you name all those beautiful behind the scenes locals. This is the only way to get to Condo 1557 and the nearly 20 condos in this part of the "resort". Each day I would need to walk by all this to get to the parking area. I referred to several guests that I was staying in the "ghetto". On the flip side the condo was beautifully furnished and comfortable, although not very sound proof, I could hear the neighbors ne...

UPDATE March 17, 2011: The path to the pool from the condo has been redone and is again open. The maintenance area has been remodeled and the dumpsters are now kept behind gates. The pool and surrounding area have been completely resurfaced and are working great! The restaurant and lounge won't likely be open until 2013 or later.

Thank you for your review and I apologize for the current state of Hanalei Bay Resort.

Yes, the resort is currently in a transition period following the fire in July 2011 that destroyed the roof of the main building at the resort The roof has been removed and most of the demolition is done and the rebuilding is now beginning.

The main pool and hot tub area are being resurfaced and is expected to be functioning again in late December 2011. The front desk, restaurant, lounge and support areas (like the sundry shop) are being redesigned and are expected to open again in 2013.

2012 will be a transitional year at the resort but it is still the best location in Princeville with a beautiful walk to the beach. My hope is that you'll come back after this transition to be pampered with Aloha and to see how wonderful this part of the world truly is.

PS: We will continue to update the Aloha Condos website with details on the progress. Our intent is to continue to be forthcoming to our guests as aways.

We stayed in unit 1557 at Hanalei Bay Resort and it was just perfect. The room has a breakfast bar with everything we needed for simple meals or preparing food for the grills down by the pool.

The Condo: After much online searching, we booked this condo for our honeymoon. This condo has an amazing view and the privacy on the lanai is second to none. We absolutely loved enjoying our morning coffee and breakfast on the lanai. A major bonus was the boogie boards and snorkel sets in the closet. They also had beach mats, tennis rackets and a few coolers. We really enjoyed our stay. However, it would have been better if the place was cleaner. The floor in the bathroom had hair in the corners and when we looked under the bed there was an empty water bottle and a wrapper of some so...

My sincere apologies for the cleaning issues that you experienced on your honeymoon. Remedies were put in place after receiving your review (I wish that you had contacted us during your stay - I live 15 minutes away) and we will continue to check to ensure that my condo is presented in a clean and well maintained state to all of our guests.

Although we appreciate that the front desk can respond to maintenance issues inside of the condo (they are a great group of persons with aloha), we prefer that you contact me or my local staff via the information provided in your check-in materials and posted inside of my condo whenever there are issues that need attention inside of the condo.

Unfortunately the fire in July 2011 was still being cleaned up during your honeymoon and it's too bad about the timing. We were very fortunately that nobody was injured. As of March 2012 you can again reach the condo via the path to and from the pool. If guests choose to walk past the dumpsters and maintenance offices, they have been remodeled and hidden along with removal of vegetation that now makes it a much more pleasant stroll.

With Aloha,
