    Best hotel in Maui

    These condos are beautiful and spacious! There are other hotels with nicer pools and grounds, but this place is THE BEST! It's a full size condo with full size kitchen, 2 baths, huge balcony, right next to Whalers Village, and immaculately clean. I don't ever want to stay anyplace else!

    Soooooo great!!!

    We have stayed at nearly every property on Kaanapali Beach, and we chose The Whaler this time because we had our three adult kids with us and wanted more space than a hotel offers. We rented #823 and it was spectacular. Beautifully remodeled and elegant but not pretentious, we felt right at home. The whole property is very nice. The pool area is small but nicely redone and the grounds are beautiful. The location is spot on...right next to Whaler’s Village and an easy walk to the best spots on the beach. Parking is included and also easy. Loved it and will be back!!

    First Time Perfection!!!

    The hotel was recommended by a friend when she found out I was planning to go to Maui with my teenage son for the first time. I began reading other travelers reviews and upon checking prices and noting that I could get a 2 bed/2 bath condo for alsmost half the cost of the other properties right next door, it was settled! So very glad I stayed here! The property is immaculate and beautiful! We were ocean front in a beautiful condo that fit our needs perfectly. ALL of the staff from check in/out, bellman, concierge (Ben and Cheri) and housekeeping were amazing! They really do care that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable! The property really does look just like their beautiful pics (no airbrushing there). Having Whalers Village just a short 5 minute walk from our condo was a great convenience. Cheri was great to get us a rental and Ben was a godsend when our billing for that rental wasn't correct. Mahalo Ben!! Our beds were comfortable, water pressure/temperature was good. We really have nothing bad to say about this hotel! It was very laid back with "quiet time" at 10:00. No loud partyers. They seemed to all be down the beach which was fine by us as we were there to relax and forget about life stress for a week. Book this place! You will not regret it!!

    Great Location

    Located in the heart of Kaanapali Beach, this resort has a perfect Maui laid back vibe. There are the usual name brand high end resorts along this stretch of beach, but the feeling here is more relaxed. Walking distance along beach to Black Rock for snorkeling and next to Whaler Village for shopping and dining. Units have VERY large lanais and facility has an outstanding fitness room as well as spa treatments. The two resort towers are closer to the beach and pool than most resorts, so it's an easy walk back to elevator if you happen to forget something in your room. Also, free washer & dryer on every floor (we had them in our unit... added bonus) . Complimentary tropical iced tea and fruit flavored water in lobby as well as poolside. Fully staffed concierge service (Cheri is WONDERFUL) and great bell captains as well to assist with luggage (Fred was outstanding). I highly recommend The Whaler as a vacation destination. We've stayed here twice and would definitely come back..

    Absolutely stunning

    This is an absolutely amazing resort on the beautiful Kaanapali Beach. Rooms were very spacious and included a kitchen and balcony. We were on the 5th floor, which had exceptional views of the Pacific ocean and gardens (very similar to the TripAdvisor thumbnail). You could hear the waves crashing from the rooms which was great for sleeping with! The pool complex is small, but efficiently ran and plenty of sun beds for everyone. The hotel remove towels if the sun bed is empty for more than 30 mins which is great to see. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from Whalers Village, a beautiful shopping mall which has a variety of shops and restaurants. The restaurants were very expensive, but the food court has plenty of budget options which taste really good. We were surprised how early bars and restaurants closed on Kannapali Beach, but this could apply to Maui in general. We had a fantastic stay here and hope to return one day.
