    My stay at Kaanapali hotel

    If you are thinking about a trip to Maui I don’t think there is a more beautiful, accommodating, and friendly hotel on the island. From the moment you check in, to the time you check out, my wife and I feel you will have a perfect holiday. All facilities are top notch. Our room overlooking the magnificent beach was kept spotless. Kaanapali’s beach is the classic photo picture you’ve ever seen of Maui. Our breakfast buffet each morning was appetizing and delicious ( and my wife and I are real foodies.) Sunday brunch is a must from the requested omelette’s, cold seafood bar,all hot dishes, to the fantastic desserts. If you’re snorkel, or just starting you can snorkel right off the beach at Black rock where besides the beautiful fish we saw sea turtles almost every time. We went each year on a day snorkeling trip, set up by the concierge desk with Trilogy which leaves directly from Kaanapali’s beach! While on the beach you can rent cabana’s to make a long day on the beach a joy. At lunch time we would go to the Tiki bar and grille and have great drinks, and delicious food. Kaanapali is also less than a 5 minute walk to Whalers village where you can have several restaurants to choose from, and do some island shopping. What all this means is you will be so joyful you chose Kaanapali beach hotel for your Maui vacation!

    Perfect place to stay on Maui.

    Great staff, great room and right on the beach. Loved the Tiki Bar and Grill. There were lots of activities that we could walk to along the shoreline. We watched beautiful sunsets every night from the hotel property. I would definitely stay here again.

    Great hotel, overall

    The room is big and has a great infra-structure. I arrived before the standard check-in time, but the lady from the front desk was really sweet and let me in to the room, anyways! I strongly recommend this hotel! And there is a mall nearby with lots of options of restaurants and bars.

    Great staff and location, low quality rooms.

    From check in to departure all staff were terrific. Refurbishing needs to be extended to all buildings as ocean fronting rooms had mold and mildew smell and insects that had to be sprayed at check-in.

    Great location and very friendly staff

    We liked this property very much. The grounds a very inviting and well kept. The restaurant was quite good and reasonably priced. Great Mai Tai's. The only downside for this property is that the room furnishings and amenities are dated, worn and in need of renovation. We happened to walk by a room that was being renovated and were told that two rooms were being done as models to present to the owners of the hotel and a proposal to renovate the entire inventory of guest rooms. these rooms looked great! I certainly hope they do this and will stay here again if and when they do.
