4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed here recently for 5 nights and had no complaints. Yes it is an older style hotel which means not as flashy as the other big chains on the same stretch of beach, but if you are looking for a clean, comfortable and friendly atmosphere, you won't go wrong. Had a partial ocean view room and enjoyed having breakfast on... More

I stayed at KBH with my husband for our Maui honeymoon and was so happy with our hotel choice! I did a lot of research before going and KBH was better than we expected. We stayed in the Kauai wing so we had a newer room and it was very clean and had plenty of space for the 10 nights... More

We took our kids and grandkids for a Maui vacation and could not have asked for a better hotel to stay at. From the easy drive from the airport to the short steps to the beach this property was just outstanding. With my grandchildren ranging in age from 4-12, I felt very secure at letting then "run". Of course always... More

Stayed in an ocean view room, it was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities needed in your room. Has one of the larger stretches of sand on Ka'anapali Beach compared to other 5 star hotels. Easy walking distance to access Whalers Village for shops and restaurants. I really liked that they had different stalls in the lobby daily, selling... More

The reviews for this hotel are completely overrated. Based on the other reviews on this site, we booked this hotel for a check in on New Years Eve and were shocked at the condition of the hotel, the inattentiveness of staff and the musty odors emanating from the lobby and rooms. The hotel pool is tantamount to the cement pond... More

We stayed here recently on a tour of the islands. Located right on the beach in a beautiful setting. We returned from a day tour to find our room reeked of cigarette smoke from the people staying in the adjoining room. We called the front desk and they immediately offered to move us to another room. They presented us with... More

One of the original hotel properties on Kaanapali Beach, this is the best bang for your buck if you want to be midst everything Kaanapali boardwalk has to offer. Located next to Black Rock, world famous for it's amazing snokeling , and a short walk to Whaler's Village . A bit outdated compared to the big corporate owned hotels but... More

Kaanapali Beach Hotel is located in the midst of everything. You can walk everyday on the boardwalk, shop, eat and walk along the beach. The hotel had a very nice pool with an outdoor bar and restaurant which was great at nighttime. It was great to see all the boats, swimmers, and people snorkeling. The Blackrocks were beautiful and tons... More

the hotel is pretty nice with a charming atmosphere. Has a fantastic garden and the beach is amazing. Walking distance to Blackrock ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving. We found it a peaceful and very relaxing place to use as a base to discover Maui

The staff is friendly and polite. Lots of old world atmosphere. Lots of music and events. Great buffet breakfast and dinners. Good evening entertainment. Over all a top notch experience for the money.
