My review will be simple and straight to the point - don't hesitate to book this resort, it's my favorite property on the island...the rooms, grounds, pool, and restaurant will all exceed your expectations. I have tow recommendations, book the club lounge, and go to the pool, introduce yourself to Landon and relax all day...she is awesome and so is... More

The hotel is very luxurious. It is located in the very private community of kapalua unlike most of the other hotels in kaanapali or lahaina. the Beach is generally unshared except to some homeowners of the Ritz villas or kapalua villas. Restaurants are very good although pricey. Breakfast is excellent and worth the price. We were upgraded to an ocean... More

Stayed here for a few days with my family and we all had the best time! From the moment we walked in we received the most amazing service from everyone. The property is open, airy, and away from the cluster of hotels lining the Kahului coast. One morning we had the breakfast buffet; yes it was pricey, but it was... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights at the hotel in early September 2014. Before I went for the trip, I read several reviews on TripAdvisor, and saw that several time, people complained that it is not luxurious enough and it's not 5 stars, but I booked anyway, because I like the remote location of the hotel, instead of...

I stayed at the Ritz Carlton for a week, half business half pleasure. The property is great and the service is outstanding. My compliments to Grace, Ben, David and Grant they did a great job as well as everyone else. Grace especially at the front desk everything I needed she was on it! The golfing was also fantastic with two... More

My husband and I were here on his business trip and loved this hotel. We know several people who came for honeymoons too. For honeymooners, I would note there is one large pool so it can be crowded and less private than other resorts. If you are ok with that, the beach is on the small side but also very... More

Spent a weekend in mid-September at this amazing property to celebrate our anniversary, and brought our two young children. From the moment we arrived, we were absolutely floored. The property is stunning, as you can see for yourself. But what made this stay so incredible was the amazing service, and the attention to detail shown by everyone at the resort.... More

I spent a lot of time reading reviews here on TripAdvisor before booking the hotels for our honeymoon. I was a bit hesitant booking the Ritz in Kapalua due to the many negative comments about the staff attitude and the windy weather. I'm happy that I did not listen to all these since I could not recognize any of this... More

Very disappointed. Old-ish rooms, poor housekeeping & grounds maintenance. People were nice, though! Upon arrival, the bellman took us to our room. On the way we saw housekeeping gloves discarded on the floor. No big deal. But upon getting to our ocean view room, there were hairs in bathroom ick! And a discarded Pringles can on our veranda. Really? At... More

Pros: well manicured property from outside. All trees plantations give you calming feeling. Staff at the entrance gate were very welcoming. Beach is relaxing just grab few towels sit at the chairs and enjoy waves of the pacific or for a swim or snorkeling. Honulua store outside is a gem to the area...you get food, souvenirs, snorkeling gear, drinks and... More
