no ability to rent a car at the resort; no maid service during our stay; not sure how we would get towels in the event we used them all; limited hours at the restaurant; after we figured out that we were "stuck" in paradise, we relaxed and got rides from our fellow party goers and just chilled!
Kauai is an island that a rental car is a necessity if you want to see the island. Waimea Canyon, the Kileaua Lighthouse, Kauai Coffee Plantation, and Kee Beach are must see's while on the island. The rental car companies are almost all located centrally on the island by the airport.
The condos that are for rent to guest at the Resort are privately owned. Our description and check-in instructions state that there is no daily maid service. The condo is professionally cleaned before a guest arrives and professionally cleaned on the departure. The condo is a private condo which gives you all the comforts of a large Resort without strangers inside your room while you enjoy your stay.
The items that were looking for are available at the Princeville Hotel next door at a nightly rate of $600+ per night.
Mahalo for your review and your reservation.
Overall the place is wonderful. It has everything you need and very nicely done bathroom. My only complaint was towards the bed. Otherwise the views, the pool and the condo was very well done.
Adequate room, bad bed
The room was fine overall, enough space for 2 people and we weren’t really in the room that much. However, the bed was VERY uncomfortable, which is pretty much all we needed from the room. The mattress was oddly lumpy and had a pretty bad squeaking noise any time you moved or turned over. The pillows were very flat so I ended up stacking 3 together. Although the room was adequate, it could definitely do with some updating in the bathroom, as the bathroom sink and tub had some stains and cracks from age and wear.
I am sorry you found the bed uncomfortable for you. This is a new mattress and it is in all our condos and we receive lots of complements
on them. The condo just went through a very expensive and extensive total remodel two years ago. It turns out the designer vessel sink was the wrong sink for the condo and will be replaced soon.

Loved HBR but this unit is overpriced.
We loved our stay at the resort, but this room was just ok. We had an issue with the bed the first night, and the owner Chuck was very responsive and nice/easy to deal with.
It says it can sleep 4, but realistically it sleeps 2, possibly 3. There is no kitchen sink, so you have to wash any dishes in the bathroom. This makes the use of the BBQs hard to cook at home. There is also no table and very limited storage space. We had our baby with us and with her crib there was zero space in the room. The view is mininal as your are blocked by buildings on both sides.
I think at $180 this unit is overpriced. I think it should be more like $120. We will come back to HBR, but will look for another unit when we do.
I am sorry you felt the condo was not the best fit for your family. The condo is part of a two bedroom suite. The deluxe side has a dining area, full kitchen, washer and dryer, and master suite. The BBQ area at the Resort has a full kitchen area to help you prepare your meal and clean up afterwards. HBR has many activities for small children to enjoy. We would love to have back in the deluxe side which seems would be a better fit for your family.
8 Tennis Courts and If you're a golfer, you'll absolutely love the Princeville area. There is a world class PGA Makai Course course located less than a 10 minute drive from Hanalei Bay Resort: All guests of Hanalei Bay Resort are entitled to discounted golfing fees. Deep Sea Fishing.
