This is a great hotel! Everyone is friendly. The room was huge and very clean. We had a nice view of the ocean, and gardens. Amazing pools with water slides and a water elevator. Several restaurants, and within walking distance of many more choices. We did a kayak snorkel tour through the hotel and it was fantastic. The bed was... More

The staff at this hotel could not have been more accommodating. From the moment my husband and I arrived, we were welcomed with smiles and catered to like royalty. The pool is nice but the beach (voted one of the best in the world) is stunning! Rainbows every day. It was an easy walk down the boardwalk to shops and... More

Stay started by a cockroach in the room that we killed - the staff did apologize & we got another room quickly in the same Molokai wing, which had no roaches but looked much like the first - old & tired. But a magnificent location & we could see the beach at an angle, which was pretty - great activities... More

This hotel has it all. You never have to use your car to go anywhere. If you can walk 1,000 feet, you can snorkel, shop, eat at fine places, and meet very nice people. You can watch people leap from a small lava cliff and swim in crystal clear water...even 3 days after a hurricane! Ocean views sea breezes, great... More

We stayed here for five nights as part of a larger Hawaii honeymoon. It is one of many hotels located along Ka’anapali Beach, which are all connected by a path behind the beach. The hotel prides itself on being “the most Hawaiian” hotel, and the staff are certainly welcoming and friendly, even giving you a unique welcome and leaving ceremony.... More

This hotel on the wonderful Kaanapali beach although of declared inferior "star" class of the more prestigious international chains is absolutely excellent. It was the very first hotel built on this world famous beach and because of that it enjoyes the use of a fantastic garden populated by mature trees. It is great to sunbath on the garden and go...

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights whilst we visited Maui. It's a lovely hotel and resort - they're very proud that they're the "most Hawaiian hotel", and they included a welcome breakfast and farewell presentation. The hotel overlooks the beach, with some stunning sunset views on offer. There's a restaurant onsite, but it's only a few... More

We booked this hotel as part of a package and were not disappointed. The overall feel of the hotel is classic, mid-century Hawaiian tourism, the facilities are not sparkling new but are well maintained and clean. The staff was SO friendly but beyond that they were inviting and made us feel valued as customers and visitors to Maui. The hotel... More

We stayed at the Ka'anapali Beach for a little over a week in July 2014. Firstly, keep in mind the hotel prides itself on providing you with an 'authentic hawaiian experience!'. Thing's aren't new and the property maintains that traditional cultural connection to Hawaii. Our second morning we went to the free buffet breakfast - which was a cafeteria style... More

Had positive interactions with this hotel before we even got to Maui, while setting up rooms for family. Arrived tired, late in the evening, and noticed we had just 15 minutes before the restaurant closed to order food. We were seated quickly and waited on as if we were the first diners for the evening. Aloha! The meal was fabulous... More
