We had a wonderful vacation in beautiful Kauai. We stayed 1 week in Poi Pu and 5 days at HBR. Our favorite was HBR 7202. The condo is lovely with beautiful grounds, a million dollar view and a very comfortable bed. Everything was clean and in working order. Ac and washer drier a huge plus. The property management company was responsive, accommodating and very helpful to our every request. Great value! Would definately stay here again.
Wonderful as last year but...

We chose this room a second time because its so beautiful as is the view. The bed is very comfortable as is the trundle bed in the livingroom which my son slept on for a short stay with us. Resort service excellent.
I mentioned in my review last year that the room needs a new Easier-to-use coffee pot. There are paper filters and also the plastic/mesh one which confused us because we Didnt know which to use. We wasted alot of coffee trying to figure it out. Also there is a mildew smell in the bathroom. Lights over kitchen counter flicker. The bathroom sink stopper doesn't drain well. If hooks were put on the bathroom & Bedrooom doors and in the closet, that would be so very nice for hanging clothes. These are simple repairs some of which we complained about after last year's stay and were not attended to. Read more
Thank you for your review and your return visit to 7202. You will be happy to learn we have just replaced the lanai furniture with bar height chairs and tables so guests can better enjoy the view, and have just ordered a new refrigerator which will be installed within a month. We have also repaired the lights and the drain and will suggest to the homeowners that we add the hooks you mentioned.

We love staying on the north shore and this building at HBR. It took us awhile to find this spot and get away from staying at Poipu Bay.
This is a great location...wonderful views and very quiet at this end of the resort.
Overall, the unit is in nice shape. It's a casual spot...not fancy...which is what we like. Hey, we're at the beach...and a great one at that. The owners are clearly making on-going investments in upgrades...all the bedroom furniture has been replaced recently, as have all the small appliances in the kitchen. The bathroom vanity also looks pretty new. Looks like it's an on-going effort.
Kristen and her folks were great to work with...very responsive and very helpful initially responding to inquiries, confirming everything, and responding to questions just before and during our stay. Also, the HBR personnel were all very friendly and helpful. It sure will be nice when the resort's bar/restaurant is finished.
All-in-all very satisfied with our experience...we'll definitely be going back. Thank you

We enjoyed the condo. Everything worked and we had no problems with it. Great view. It's a long walk to the parking lot.
Beautiful Place to Stay on the North Shore

This condo was very well equipped with an excellent location and view of the North Shore. The beach located on the property itself was very nice and great for young children. The condo was packed with kids water toys and accessories. You needn't pack much for a stay in this condo! We'll be back for sure!

The condo was very comfortable and furnished wonderfully. I cannot say enough about the view!! comfortable lounge chairs on lanai that we watched sunsets on almost every night. The kitchen has everything you need. There were beach chairs and rafts for the pool in closet. I would stay here again. The only bummer is the Registration area and restaurant are under construction so you need to go off sight for food, but the grills by the pool area are nice we grilled several time while we were there.
Great view from the lanai!

Our unit was very roomy and perfect for a family of four. The view from the lanai was incredible. We all loved the pool as well although we didn't spend that much time there.
Beautiful location, good value, everything you need!

My husband and I took a 10th anniversary trip to Hawaii. We stayed on Kauai for a week. After much research, we decided on Unit 7202 in Hanalei Bay Resort. The experience was wonderful. The unit has a well-stocked kitchen, beach chairs, and other nice amenities. The views are lovely and the stroll to the beach down the paved path is about 8 minutes (yes, I timed it) from the unit. For older folks, you should be aware that you can't park your car at the unit. So, when if you get groceries and things, you must call the drivers who have golf carts to help you with luggage, etc. They are accessible, so it is not a problem. Just something to know before you go.
big room with a great view

We liked the unit. It is comfortable and clean. The resort itself seemed to have a lack of employees (only one shuttle person most of the time) and many of the employees have been there less than a month. The loss of restaurant and lounge also is a big loss, as walk up food and entertainment would make it so we wouldn't have to go out for each meal. Only other concern is the excessive cleaning charge ($50 per day in our case). Other units in the same complex have a much lower rate for this service.

Stunning Views, Excellent location!

My husband and I stayed in Hanalei Bay Resort (HBR) #7202 for four nights. It is a one bedroom 1 bath unit with one of the most stunning views of Hanalei Bay, the mountains and waterfalls,"Bali Hai" and sunsets.It was hard to pry ourselves from the spacious lanai.
The unit was very comfortable, including the bed. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. The appliances could be updated, but are still nice enough. We loved the fact it had two nice sized flatscreen TVs. The lanai furniture was very basic but had two round tables and two chaisse lounges. However there were a total of only 4 table chairs. Great for 4 people, but not if you have guests.
The location in the resort is quite private. Being so private, it is a long way uphill to the large pool area and to the parking area. Not too bad,and a cinch for younger ones (we are 60) However,a quick call to the front desk sends a golf cart to pick you up. That service is also available to jet you down to the beach which is shared with the St. Regis. Gorgeous views from the beach and quite handy to grab lunch or a drink at the St. Regis pool area. Only small downside are the tips one should give to the driver each time. There is a phone down the hill to call for pick up at the beach. We utilized the pick up service. However, a younger person could easily walk up to the HBR.
The restaurant and bar were closed due to a fire and were under construction. That was a big disappointment. And the pool's waterfall pump was not working so the pool was not its usual gorgeous self.
This unit is priced very well compared to "like" units. The only downside was the daily $10 Internet fee and the daily $5 fee for "something". A resort fee of $25 for your stay is also an expense and the tips to the golf cart drivers (if used). There is also a charge for phone calls. So...We figure we spent an average of $25-$30 each day in addition to the basic rental.
Overall, we totally enjoyed our stay.

Great view from lanai. Room needs some furniture updates, living room & lanai, as they were dated and worn. Front room window slates need repair. Well stocked kitchen.

Roomy, but not in great condition
Left on 06/15/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Sandy and Kevin
Pros - view (but most units in blocks 3-9 have great views), A/C, full kitchen, large rooms.
2 closets in bedroom. This unit has laundry (stacked washer and dryer) and soap was provided.
Resort staff were great, too - convenient golf cart service on demand (except once when they didn't respond to our request for beach pickup).
We got enough towels for the week, and the kitchen was well stocked with cleaning supplies.
Ample pots and pans, dull knives.
The pool is large and there are plenty of chairs and palapas. No crowds on the tennis courts. Ice machines in the laundry building and an icemaker in the unit's freezer.
Cons - uncomfortable king bed and noise from 3rd floor unit = poor sleep, kitchen cabinet doors don't close, kitchen counter is tile and a little grungy - we saw one roach. Small dated bathroom, and the trundle bed looked pretty bad. Lanai furniture is cheap (vinyl straps on aluminum frames - hard to get back up). Decor in this unit is very basic, no real Kauai feel.
Long walk to the parking lot - be sure to call for a ride with luggage, groceries, etc. The common area laundry has 2 washers and 2 dryers -both washing machines were broken during our visit.
Of course, no on-site restaurant and there's no apparent effort to rebuild after last year's fire...
Princeville is about an hour drive from Lihue. There are not many good restaurants (Dolphin in Hanalei and the Kauai Grill at the St. Regis were the best we visited). The max speed limit is 50 mph, but there are many slow zones for towns and road construction. Foodland in Princeville is a fully stocked grocery store, so you don't need to stop in Lihue or Wailua (but it's expensive, as are all Hawaii groceries).
Best touristy thing we did was the helicopter tour of the island.
After this trip, we decided we liked Maui better, and Mexico better than Hawaii (closer to us and cheaper).
Reunion in Paradise

I had reserved unit 7202 over the internet months before our arrival. I arrived to check in late one day, after dark, and didn't realize I had a completely unobstructed view of Hanalei Bay until I woke up the next morning. Beautiful! The unit was spacious, clean, well stocked, and quiet. It is well maintained and the price was very fair for what was available. The only downside was that the wifi didn't work. Overall?...great.
San Jose, CA
Great unit in a spectacular location
Left on 06/15/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | MikeSanJose
The location of the complex itself, and of this unit within the complex, are both excellent. Put it this way: a few of my favorite pictures from our week on Kauai were taken from the lanai of this unit! (mountain, ocean, and garden views)
This unit is huge - the living/dining area has plenty of room to spread out without feeling cramped, and the bedroom is also quite large. The kitchen and bathroom are a decent size. I appreciated the "split" bathroom with the toilet/shower in its own room, so the sink/vanity/mirror could be used separately. Also, it was great to have a washer/dryer in the unit, which we used several times.
The unit appears to have been recently remodeled, with very nice furnishings and appliances.
The complex is great, convenient to lots of sights and activities, a nice walk (or shuttle ride) to the beach, with a beautiful main pool/spa, and wonderful lush gardens/grounds. We did not try the smaller pool, which is a shorter walk from the unit, because we just liked the size and naturalistic style (rocks, plants, waterfalls) of the main pool so much.
All in all, a great stay and we'd be thrilled to stay here again.

We stayed here for a week and had a great time. The condo is spacious with great views The king bed is basic but comfortable. All the appliances are updated with the exception of the refrigerator. Foodland is a short drive away for the essentials This unit has air conditioning that is exceptionally quiet. The sheets and towels are all top notch. Noisy neighbors that chain smoked on their porch moved in shortly after we arrived. After several days of putting up with that nonsense we complained to the front desk and the troublesome behavior ceased. This is a non-smoking resort!! If you want to smoke you will need to hike up to the parking lot. There are fruit trees everywhere along the walking paths. If you go early you will find treats under the trees in the morning. The walk to the beach is pleasant. You can swim and snorkel there. By the way...there are feral chicken everywhere on the island...and the roosters start crowing in the middle of the night. Bring earplugs if you like to sleep with the doors and windows open at night!!! I am not kidding about this, you have been warned...
Great Stay - Highly Recommended!

We had a fantastic time and loved this condo. The views were beautiful. The condo was clean and well maintained. The beach supplies were a great touch.
The condo complex was generally very quiet and peaceful (with the exception of several days in which a temporary utility pump of some kind was installed outside our unit).

Awesome destination wedding & vacation week!

This unit was a pleasant surprise!
I stayed a week in Hanalei for a friend's wedding and it was really nice to stay somewhere that felt like home. It was great to have a full kitchen where we could cook and a great size living room & balcony where we could relax when we wanted to. This unit has a beautiful view which made the balcony even more pleasurable.
Hanalei Bay Resort (HBR is what the locals refer to it as) is a great location on the North Shore. The two pools are really nice. It's a short walk down to a small beach and short car ride to other great beaches and fun adventure spots. There is a grocery store five minutes away as well. It was great that they had the cart service as well- you can call for a golf cart if you are in a hurry, have a lot of stuff to carry, or are dressed up in heels and don't feel like walking up to your car :)
I am happy that I went this route instead of a hotel room at the St. Regis or the Westin.
The HBR staff were very accomodating and had great tips and knowledge about the area. I have friends that live on the North Shore so I already had some inside tips of places to see and restaurants to eat at! (If you want a great, basic breakfast, check out "Wake Up Cafe")!

The resort itself was quite beautiful, clean, well kept, and the customer service was excellent. The condo unit itself exceeded my expectations. It was extremely clean, stylishly well furnished, and very spacious. Having a washer/dryer and a fully applianced kitchen made my stay much more comfortable, my home away from home.

Although our unit was older, it was clean and about what we expected from the pictures. The grounds and the view was wonderful and the staff was very helpful. Disappointed that the restaurants were closed at this location, but there were several a short drive away.
