Hanalei Bay Resort 3303-04
2 Bedroom Beach View Condo
A great condo just a short walk to the parking lot. Unlike many other condos at HBR, there is no change in elevation between the parking lot and this building, so it is just a few steps and 2 flights up to the condo.... more The best feature of the unit is, of course, the jaw-dropping view of Hanalei Bay and the surrounding Makana Mountains. less ↑

Nice Week at HBR
Hanalei Bay resort was very nice. The condo 3303-04 was in a good location with spectacular view. The room was dated but just fine for our liking. The condo was well stocked with all necessary kitchen gadgets. When we arrived, the bathroom on one side... more wasn’t as clean as I might have liked. (I had to sweep it right away but there was a broom.). It kind of felt like maybe the cleaners had been rushed and didn’t completely finish the job?? Regarding the resort, it was well kept with friendly staff. I wish the pool was heated. It was pretty chilly. All in all, it was a great week. less

We loved everything about HBR Condo 3303-04. The condo was spacious and had everything we needed from laundry detergent to towels to beach gear and toys. The view from the lanai was beautiful. The condo was perfectly situated on property and conveniently located to the... more parking lot, lobby, and main pool. We loved HBR and would definitely stay again and recommend! less

The resort was beautiful and in a great location. The condos view was amazing. The issue would be the cockroaches, and finding food wrappers under the bed and some thicker dust. If the condo was treated for roaches that would be great, not something you... more want to deal with on vacation. Otherwise it was a nice stay. less

Aloha Zachary, Thank you for your post about the condo at the Hanalei Bay Resort. Thank you for your comment about the view as it is pretty amazing! We were surprised at the mention of roaches as this is not typical for this unit. However it is a tropical island and they do exist so making sure you leave the screen doors and sliders closed would be important as they do fly. We apologize if the housekeeper missed a wrapper under the bed. and some dust. We could have sent someone by if you would have contacted us about it. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Very Dated, Unclean Condo.
My family and I recently stayed at the Hanalei Bay Resort in Kauai. My husband and I got engaged at this same resort 18 years ago so it was a special to us and so the thought of going back to the same resort, was... more meaningful. The grounds were as we remembered them being 18 years ago. Stunning views, well manicured landscaping and a phenomenal pool. Unfortunately, that is where the positive experience ends. Our Condo 3303/3304 was significantly dated in every aspect. The wallpaper was chipping, the shower didn't work properly, mirrors in the living area and on and on. However, not only was the style out of date, the place wasn't clean. The microwave had burnt cheese in it. There was food left in the refrigerator and clothes in the drawers. We did ask about updates to other units and did learn that many of the owners made the decision to update their condos. I give that perspective because the property is really nice. We had beautiful views, played tennis, sat in the hot tub and had Mojitos at the swim up bar. I would definitely consider coming back to Hanalei Bay Resort in a more updated condo. less

Aloha Susanne, Thank you for taking the time to post a review for your stay at the Hanalei Bay Resort unit 3303/04. Thank you for noting the wonderful resort amenities and the incredible views this condo offers! This condo is individually owned and the decor therefore is an individual perferrence. The websites do depict the condo exactly as it is and therefore gives each guest the choice to decide if this look is what they would be interested in. We even have the virtual tours that you can walk through the condo room to room and zoom in and out for really detailed perspectives. The mirrors in the living area are also a personal choice and for some, it helps further capture the beautiful views. About half the condos at the Hanalei Bay Resort are individually owned and therefore some might have updated more recently but with updates pricing becomes a factor too. We are a bit confused about the statement about the shower not working properly. The homeowners had been there recently themselves and had some new parts installed on the shower and confirmed it was working well. Since your departure we have not had any reports from other guests and or the housekeeping staff about this being an issue. We did not hear from you during your stay about the shower or the items you mentioned about the microwave, refrigerator and the clothes. We do apologize for those issues and certainly would have come over right away to attend to those things if you would have called us. Taking the clothes out of the drawer, the little bit of food out of the refrigerator and wiping out the microwave would have been resolved in just a few minutes for you. The housekeeper most likely left the rest of his lunch in the refrigerator accidently. He did spend extra time there before your arrival going above the standard checkout cleaning and did some deep cleaning that day as we have recorded in our records.
The condo we stayed in was bright, clean and had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was beautiful. It was wonderful to have the pool, BBQs, concierge services and even a restaurant on the premises. The grounds were immaculate and lush...just what you’d... more expect from a tropical paradise. Our only suggestion for improvement would be there needs to be a light on the balcony for otherwise the space in unusable after dark. less

Aloha Jen, Thank you for your response for our request for a review on unit 3303/04 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. We are so glad that you enjoyed the condo and the resort and it met your expectations. The Hanalei Bay Resort does not have lights on the lanais. However because the properties are on the bluffs, the lanai lights are mistaken by the Shearwater birds for the moon and it causes the birds to fly into buildings. Therefore there are limitations on lights on lanais. We hope you will come again soon!
We had a fabulous week at the HB Resort. Very accommodating. Lovely arrangement for us with our two adult children. Something for everyone. Enjoyed exploring all around. Consider it very special to have been able to stay there. Love to come back.

Wow! Pictures don’t do it justice!
This was lovely, we had both 3303/3304 and the view, the view, the view - from both lanai - incredible!!! steps from the pool, close to parking lot, this couldn’t have been better. I thought from the pix and some comments that the furniture/decor might... more be a little outdated but it was all perfect, in fact felt very comfortable without feeling like being in a cookie-cutter condo. Only regret is I wish we’d stayed longer! Would definitely rent again given the opportunity! less

Had a wonderful stay!
We are a family of four and loved our stay in Unit 3303-04 at the beautiful Hanalei Bay Resort. The view from the unit is spectacular. The unit was clean, comfortable, and quiet. It had everything we needed for a great stay. We would definitely... more book this unit again. less

Hanalei Bay Resort 3303/4
We had a great time in Kauai and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hanalei Bay Resort! Condo 3303/4 was very clean and offered all the amenities we needed down to beach chairs, snorkeling gear, trash bags, and light bulb replacements! The beds were firm! Having... more a washer and dryer were a great plus! I would say that the decor could use some updating and there was a little bit of musky or moldy smell when we first arrived but after the A/C ran for a while we didn’t notice it! I would definitely stay there again! less

Aloha, We so appreciate you taking the time to post for the unit 3303/04 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. We are glad to hear you appreciated the cleanliness and the amenities offered. We do try to think of things that will make our guests have a great vacation. The washer and dryer are brand new and glad you could make use of them. Decor is individual taste and with owners determine how it is decorated. Extensive pictures help each guest to determine what might work for them in this area. We are so glad to hear you would stay again and we hope you will.
Best view ever
Although a little dated, this condo is in good condition and has a spectacular view. My husband and I loved sitting on our lanai and watching the surfers in the bay. We wished for binoculars. The kitchen is tiny with miniature oven. Had hoped to... more cook a pizza but no pizza pan, and it may not have fit anyway. So we were fine with dinner at Happy Talk one night, take out another night, and pizza at the Princeville Italian restaurant. The grounds are great. The whole Princeville development is first class. Except for needing some updates, I highly recommend. less
— Pamela, Stayed 03/10/2018
We really enjoyed are stay at Hanalei Bay Resort. The view from the condo 3303-04 was spectacular! The condo was clean and well cared for. We really enjoyed the pool, tennis courts, and short walk to hideaway beach. We found the shopping and Thai restaurant... more in Princeville delightful. I was especially pleased with the prompt attention we received from Aloha Condos and Homes when the air conditioning went out in condo 3303. Kristen did everything she could do to fix the problem and kept in constant communication with us. We would definitely stay here again!! less

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to post a review for the condo 3303/04. The views are pretty special from this unit! We so appreicate mentioning our contact with you on the unfortunate AC problem on the one side of the condo and the condo cleanliness. We do our best to be attentive and resolve things as soon as we can. We certainly do hope you can come back again and soon!
We enjoyed our stay very much. Other than the smoke alarm going off in the middle of the night it was great. The view is perfect!!

Sunset was superb
This is one of the nicest condos in Hawaii. Perfect location, well set up, comfortable and just right for the best vacation you will ever have. The pool is close by and is divine, the beach is warm and inviting, the staff are friendly and... more helpful. One of our favourite spots in the world. Highly recommended. less

Great location and view, good condo for the price
We (2 adults + 2 teenage children) stayed in Condo 3304 on its own for 2 nights and then a further 2 nights in Condo 3303-3304 combined (as 3303 was already booked for the first two nights). We had previously stayed in 3303-3304 in 2009.... more We loved our stay and the Condo ticked all of the most important boxes for us: - fantastic views of Hanalei Bay across to Bali Hai; - great resort (HBR) in the best location on Kauai - Princeville Coast facing West (so best views and walking access to beautiful sheltered beaches), close to Na Pali coast / Kapalua Trail / Ke'e Beach; - clean with small but serviceable kitchen (so could cook our own meals), all needed equipment (including some snorkeling gear and beach chairs); - short flat walk from car park and pool (noting that some condos at HBR have quite a hilly hike from the car park; - quiet top floor with large private lanai (if you have both 3303-3304 - see below); - good price. The negatives were relatively minimal for us (our far outweighed by the positives). The sofa bed in 3304 is not quite flat - making it somewhat uncomfortable for anyone but small children - albeit we remedied this by smoothing it out with some strategically placed cushions and blankets under the mattress. Also, if you rent 3304 on its own, you share the lanai with 3303, separate by 3 pot plants. But this was not a major issue for us on our stay. In summary, this is a fantastic condo and resort to stay-in. If you can, i recommend taking both 3303 and 3304 together. The Princeville / Hanalei area is heavenly - and the views, location and facilities of HBR 3303-04 are hard to beat - much better than paying much more for the same view and location - but less facilities (no kitchen) and 4 times the price at the St Regis next door. less

Aloha Stuart, Mahalo for the great review for unit 3303/04 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. It is always wonderful to have returning guest who enjoy the condo and the amazing views! The top floor does allow for the open beam ceilings making a spacious feel. It is important for us to keep the condo well equipped accommodating our guest and meeting their needs for a great vacation. The mattress on the sofa bed is actually brand new but we will look into it. We hope you can come again in the near future!
Excellent condo superb views
My wife and I stayed for a week with our adult daughter. The two well separated bedrooms and two baths made this very easy. The unit is on the top floor and it has an uninterrupted 180 degree view of the Hanalei Bay, Tunnels Beach... more in the distance and the St. Regis from the large lanai. Passing showers produce rainbows right in front of you every morning. Everything you need for the beach or pool is provided. The beach is an easy walk down hill and you can call the resort for a ride back up if you wish. The beach is shared with the St. Regis, so you can easily access their beach bar and restaurant or go up to the lobby for dinner at the bar or more formal restaurants. You can also rent kayaks and other beach gear right at the beach. The Hanalei Bay resort has beautiful grounds. They are working on the restaurant, bar, and swim-up bar, which will make it much better. The pool area is excellent. less

This condo has a great location....close to parking (so easy to haul your stuff), the pool and a perfect sunset view of Hanalei Bay. The condo is well stocked with everything you need for the beach and in the kitchen. I also think the price... more is very reasonable considering the awesome ocean view. less
— Tami R., Stayed 09/04/2015
Checkin was friendly and flawless. The unit was clean, operational, attractively appointed. The rental team was available, friendly and efficient. The view from this unit was to die for---mountains, waterfalls, Hanalei Bay and the open ocean. The surf was audible. The beach in front and... more a short walk down the path was a delight with transportation if desired a phone call away. Parking was close by but without any traffic noise. The unit was furnished with everything you would want from kitchen to beach equipment. We will be back. less

beautiful view and comfortable
We absolutely loved staying at Hanalei Resort and loved the condo for the view, the location, and it was very comfortable, cozy, and had all the appliances and things we needed. But, I would just like to point out that we had trouble with the... more toilet clogging two different times and had to call for service and the laundry door came off in my hand. Suggestions for the condo might be complete snorkel equipment, upgrading the toilets and more ventilation upstairs in the loft. But overall, we appreciated your condo and the beautiful view. Thank you!!! less

Awsome view with very comfortable space and ameneties.
This condo was absolutely perfect for some play time on the North Shore. Centrally located for all of our activities. The pool was amazing, I coudn't get the kids out of the water. We used the BBQ facilites for our family dinners on property. I... more would love to come back and stay here again soon. less
