The Hanalei Bay Resort is in a very scenic tropical location, though not in the class of ultimate resorts on Kauai (i.e. Princeville Hotel, Hyatt) last stay was in Feb. 2002. We found that privately owned condo's in HBR are much nicer and larger than the small hotel rooms. We started in a hotel room with awesome view of Bali Hai Mountain Range and Hanalei Bay, plus A/C, but wanted a kitchenette and all we got was a microwave and coffee maker, so we switched to a 1BR condo unit, that had a full kitchen, washer/dryer and double lanai, but with ceiling fan (NO A/C).
We really enjoyed the 1BR condo and would stay there again. The jacuzzi was always occupied unlike the pool. The resort will give you a free golf cart ride to and from the Beach in front of the Princeville Hotel. Of course the next door Princeville Resort Hotel has the most choice in restaurants and luxury accomodations and regardless where you stay you should check out the facilities there (many restaurants with sunset view). The beach in front of the Princeville is good for snorkeling and swimming, but if you travel north you will find outstanding beaches, mountain hiking trails, and river activities. There is also a nearby heliport for aerial tour of Kauai and Napali coast. If it happens to be raining or the ocean is rough in the north, we found that by driving south to the Poipu area, that the conditions were favorable for beach going or hiking activities. We now find it more to our liking to stay at condo's in the P'ville Resort area over staying at hotels. Condo's can be located in Hawaii magazine or searching online for "Kauai condo's". Good Luck!

A second to everything John D said above. You would not be unhappy staying here.

Why don't you try to do a search? It's very simple. Ya type in "Hanalei Bay Resort" in the box under "text search" on the top of this page and press the "find" button.

Wah-lah! you get some results.

So you saw that "Sizzlin' Special" on Apple Vacations too!

I stayed here for 5 night in 99. It was ok but for a week stay I would rent a stand alone condo. More space and privacy.
