We stayed at HCR between the 19th and 29th ( room k4)of December and we have had wonderful experience.We chose the place mostly because of the kitchen which allowed us to cook for our little baby. On the minus sides is defenately the issue with wifi access - its not that its slow ( its pretty fast) but each time...

Absolutely fabulous location, great views. Hated to leave. Oh, so relaxing. Loved the lanai for the views and peaceful atmosphere. Condo itself was ok, not "luxurious" as their website states. Unit is furnished very sparsely. Very basic, but adequate for our needs. Even though their website says all units have 1.5 or 2 baths, not true. Our unit (C4), had...

We loved our stay at HCR. We stayed in room G-2, which was a premium ocean view room. The view was fabulous. We felt like we were sitting on the beach all of the time. The pluses + 270 degree views of the ocean. Great for morning sunrises and just listening to the waves + 2 bedrooms and 2 baths....

Beautiful resort on a beautiful piece of Coast. Our ocean view room C3 had a balcony overlooking a grassed area, with the ocean beyond. A short walk to the sea across the gardens. Spacious first floor apartment, light and airy, in effect with two bedrooms and a good lounge and small kitchen. There was a welcome drink and snack one...

We had a great room right by the ocean, the views from every room were awesome! Made full use of the kitchen and BBQ grills, loved that it was towards the end off the road making it more remote. Also had a wonderful massage while I was there, I am booked again for Feb 2014 and I can't wait.

My wife and I found this place by looking for a place near the Kalalau trail. We happened on this place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would go back in a heartbeat. The entire staff took a Sunday off because they had a funeral to go to. They room service was left undone. Other than this the place was...

This resort has an added shuttle service since my last visit. AND IT'S FREE during the day with a minimal fee to take you into Hanalei for dinner at night. Our driver Joe was awesome. Took us to the 'secret' way to get to Tunnels and also shared many other tips for a great sisters trip! All of his tips...

This was the first of four places we stayed during our 2 weeks in Hawaii, and was one of our favorites. We were in unit D4, in the back of the courtyard but still directly facing the beach. It was updated and beautiful inside. We were there at the end of October when the crowds had thinned. I loved the...

The stunning location and sense of isolation at HCR makes for immediate relaxation. This was our first trip to Kauai and I tossed up between staying at Princeville or HCR. We were so glad we chose HCR as Princeville would have been a very different experience. HCR is a low-key, low rise, laid back resort. Yes, the rooms are a...
