We have just finished another wonderful week at our favourite place in Hawaii. We discovered HBR by accident back in 2003 and have been coming back regularly ever since. You cannot beat the views, nor the gardens. The staff are wonderful at making you feel welcome. The rooms are spacious and have all the latest appliances. We can quite happily...

Loved the resort best views on the island.staff is very friendly makes you feel at home. The resort has a wonderful pool and is only one of two resorts that has a beach access on the north shore. The st regis is the other but is three times the price.Can not wait to return next year.

The view from our room is an ocean and mountain view. Last night 6 new waterfalls appeared through the rain. Our balcony is a never ending source of entertainment from the local nei-neis to cardinals to roosters which are all local wildlife. The room itself is generous in size with a lovely bath. We prepare a cold breakfast and sandwiches...

The view from our room was stunning. Really enjoyed the patio. We brought cereal & coffee and had breakfast on the patio each morning and drinks in the evening. The entire property is beautiful. As a work of caution, one of the things that makes the property attractive is that all of the parking is at the front of the...

We stayed at Wade's HBR 8132 and were amazed by the location and view. The pictures don't do the place justice. We stayed 4 nights surfing, exploring, and relaxing. The condo couldn't have been better. The unit was as described, everything was new and clean. It was hard to leave the lanai after morning coffee where we could check the...

This is a return visit to Hanalei Bay Resort for us. We exchanged in through our vacation plan, for a 2 week stay in Feb last year. We loved the serenity and beautiful scenery so much that we bought into the resort so we can return every year. It's nestled in the hills overlooking Hanalei Bay, and shares a beach...

Great week at this resort. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Mai tai Monday is a must. Plenty of tennis courts if that's your thing. Pool area is spectacular. Grocery is about 5-10 minutes away. Hope to return someday. We stayed in the guava unit. Was a little annoying with the golf cart traffic. But, guava has the best view of...

Grounds are very well kept, improvements continue to reflect the personal care given to the resort by all staff members. The accommodations were excellent, the spa very inviting and the weather in February is always perfect. (Note! a little rain is expected, but that's Hawaii.) Time well spent and will return again next year.

We checked in today and are very disappointed! Room is showing it's age and that would be ok, but we discover there's no place to get anything to eat for breakfast or lunch!There's free coffee in the lobby, I had to ask, we were not told this at.

Aloha Mindi. We set high standards for our service and we value your feedback. As a timeshare and whole owned property, we run a bit differently than the average hotel. Our studio units, one bedroom condos, and certain private rentals have full kitchens so you can enjoy a delicious meal without even having to leave the resort. We're grateful for...

Beautiful property with stunning lush landscaping. Peter Burwell tennis program is excellent with 3 full double courts in perfect condition. 4 are the fast moisture draining grass type and you can play right after any shower. Excellent pros. The thing people should know is that these units are individually owned and while some are just for hotel rental, You are...
