Great Getaway! (4/25-5/3/03) A review of Hanalei Colony Resort
HCR motto: How do you find paradise? Just cross 7 one-lane bridges! It's very fitting. This resort is truly a find! The condos are nice, spacious and very close to the water's edge. Also, the location is great - only ~10 minutes from Hanalei and only 2 miles from the end of 560 (Ke'e Beach - superb, and the Na Pali Coast). Was very impressed w/ the front desk folks and all the planned weekly activities (Mai Tai party, lei making, continental b'fast, etc.). One of the best aspects of the resort is the pool area. No view from the pool, but it's very clean and is surrounded by tropical trees and flowers. It's really a nice way to finish up a day of snorkeling or soothe the muscles in the jacuzzi before bed. We liked the pool area so much - I proposed to my gal right there on the pool steps! Overall, a great place to stay!
