Here's what others have had to say about Hanalei Bay Resort.

  • 5-Ball Rating "HBR was such a nice surprise for me! Going to Kauai for many years, this was my first summer playing tennis at the resort. I loved playing in Mary’s clinics so much that I went every day, for three weeks straight! I also got my son Alexander 4, lessons. Mary is a star, the club is so lucky to have her. Not only is she beautiful and talented, she always has a smile on her face and is ready to play rain or shine!"—Z.K., Adv. Int., August 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "We had an excellent experience getting tennis lessons for our 13-year-old at the Hanalei Bay Resort. Mary is an amazing tennis instructor. She is patient, enthusiastic and kind. She is extremely knowledgable and experienced as an instructor and is able to break down different tennis strokes to smaller components, making the movements understandable and easy to learn. My daughter made huge progress in a few sessions. Thank you!!"—J.C., Beg., August 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "Mary is a great instructor. She spotted and corrected flaws in my swings and was very patient and caring in her approach."—H.S., Low Int., August 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "Mary really helped me learn new ways to keep playing without injuring myself. She's the best!"—L.B., Beg., August 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "Wow! What a beautiful setting in Hanalei Bay, Hawaii! You could not ask for a better place to play tennis and vacation! Mary Hannsz is an exceptional instructor! She is there for each player with positive guidance and instruction. Her love for tennis and people make playing even more enjoyable. In my case, I had not played tennis in over 10 years. Mary’s lessons and encouragement has gotten me back out on the courts and I am hooked again! Go to Hanalei and play tennis! I will be back next year!!!"—N.G., Int., June 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "My husband and I spent 6 weeks In Princeville Kauai and a friend recommended that I join the tennis clinic at HBResort. I’m so glad I did. I met the nicest people and thoroughly enjoyed the tennis clinics. I had not played tennis for quite a few years and the clinics helped me get my confidence back. Mist of all I looked forward to seeing Mary, the Tennis Director and instructor. She’s such a pleasure and a great instructor. I would highly recommend joining the clinic or one on one lessons with Mary. It will be the highlight of your vacation!"—F.M., Adv. Int., June 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "Hanalei Bay is a great place--beautiful resort in beautiful surroundings. I love the hiking, hidden beaches, and happiness. Tennis is a perk. I have come to HBR innumerable times. I don't come to play, and don't play much if at all at home, but it's so much fun to play at HBR that I always wind up playing a lot there. Mary is wonderful, sets me up with matches or tennis partners and gives me lessons. The lessons are insightful, and her teaching is so good that I don't forget what I have learned. In addition, the people who play are very welcoming. It's like a second home--a happy place! If you want a wonderful vacation on one of the prettiest tropical islands on earth, with tons of things to do and if you want to have the opportunity to enjoy tennis at the same time, HBR is the place to go!"—R.B., Adv. Int., June 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "My wife and I returned to the Hanalei Bay Resort because we had such a fantastic experience the first time. The setting is unbeatable, the grounds, pool and spa are beautiful. It is a great place to hang out. The addition, since the last time we were there, of the Happy Talk lounge gives a good option for dinner at the resort. I am extremely happy with my tennis experience at HBR, Mary Hannsz is a perfect pro for the resort. She is a great player, an inventive and insightful teacher and, very importantly, a supportive mentor. She has a great, positive personality. My week of lessons will make a noticeable improvement in my tennis. Mary also led very useful and interesting morning clinics. She also did a good job of arranging matches for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the tennis at HBR. We highly recommend HBR for tennis and for the resort itself."—M.W., Int., May 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I recently took part in the tennis program at Hanalei Bay Resort (private lesson, clinics). I came away energized about my game and eager to practice what I learned. Mary Hannsz does an outstanding job with stroke instruction and court strategy and she then implements drills to support her coaching. I enjoyed the time I spent playing tennis at HBR tremendously, and my game improved a lot. The resort is gorgeous."—N.B., Int., May 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating "Just returned from six weeks at Hanalei Bay Resort, a Peter Burwash affiliate on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. We attended clinics two to three times each week in addition to playing in matches with other people we met at the resort/clinics. We hadn’t planned quite so much tennis on our trip, but between the excellent instruction, fun clinics, people we met and the extraordinary beauty of the courts on a bluff overlooking Hanalei Bay, we kept wanting more! Mary Hannsz, the on-site tennis pro, teaches all levels, and both my wife and I- two very different skill levels - came away with improved skills and strategies. We watched Mary working with kids and can’t wait for our grandchildren to take part in the program. We highly recommend Hanalei Bay Resort."—W.B., Adv. Int., May 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating "My 8yr old son has wanted to try tennis. When we arrived he saw all the tennis courts and said he wanted a lesson. He was apprehensive at first, but Mary was amazing. She was the best coach! He had such a great experience that we signed up for more lessons while visiting. Now that we are home he has continued taking lesson."—E.L., Int., April 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The best experience ever! We arrived at HBR as a timeshare exchange owner and was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the resort was....the view, the pool, the atmosphere, etc. But, the best surprise of all, was Mary Hannsz and the tennis program! Only two weeks before leaving to Kauai, I was looking at tennis resorts featured in tennis magazines and was going to book a trip when I returned from Kauai in NC. Little did I know that I would be staying at a "top 50 tennis resort in the world" at HBR! Not only was Mary extremely welcoming, she helped a former ranked racquetball player with "lots of bad habits", become a confident tennis player in two weeks! I can't thank her enough! AND because of her (and the wonderful tennis players that I met), we became an HBR owner. It was my intention to sell my other Kauai timeshares on this trip and instead we added HBR to our we will be back!!! Thank you again!!!"—J.P., Int., April 2019
