When I lived in Maui, I would stay in this hotel for the night especially, when I needed a break from my family. It is my little get-away and place of refuge when things get a little bit rough in life. They certainly know how to take care of their own, called the "Kamaaina". Room rates are the most reasonable... More

We have returned to the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel (KBH) at least 6 times because it offers a very peaceful respite from the typical dollar-driven tourist places. The staff here are all very friendly and helpful, making you feel as if you were staying with family. They have an excellent area of beach frontage with easy access to whale-watching boats in...

situated beach front at Kaanapali beach. Good location but hotel is very basic. One restaurant, one pub and one simple swimming pool. No frill hotel really. I stayed on the ground floor. Room is clean at appearance but lots of things in the room not working properly. Prompt repair at request. Frustrations at little things that made the stay unsatisfied.... More

We actually stayed here in May of 2013, so this review is long overdue, but we absolutely LOVED staying here. Yes, it is an older hotel, but that makes it such an awesome place...a true, old fashioned Hawaiian experience. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. Loved sitting on the balcony at night listening to nightly entertainment. The staff is... More

This place and staff never disappoints us! The aloha spirit is truly here. The staff is always so helpful and kind. The tiki bar with Dale & Chantel is always a great time and conversation. Music and entertainment in the evenings. The grounds are kept immaculate. We will continue to visit and stay here! Mahalo!

Lovely place to stay on an island paradise. The hotel has it's own restaurants , both fine dining & a little takeaway that sells delicious calamari, wings & fries.

This hotel is one of the oldest hotels in ka'anapali, so naturally there will be things that make it old. The Maui wing is the oldest and that's where they put us first, if you have any type of allergies I would recommend asking for a newer wing. Both my mom and I have asthma and right away we both...

The Kaanapali Beach Hotel advertises itself as Maui's most Hawaiian hotel, and I believe it is true. The staff is friendly, the grounds are beautiful and the ocean beach is wonderful. The buildings are older than many in this popular Kaanapali resort area, yet well kept with rooms that are modest, but modern. They provide a lot of free hawaiian... More

The hotel is clean, quiet, friendly, has an amazing restaurant and tiki bar, as well as a food shack (for lack of a better word), and amazing nightly entertainment. This hotel is one of the oldest and cheapest, yet we wouldn't have stayed anywhere else. The staff and the other hotel guests were simply amazing. There is no room service... More

The hotel was great for us! First time in Maui, and loved it. We are not fancy people, so did not want a fancy hotel. Staff were very friendly, especially Houskeepers, Virgie and Flori. They are all hard workers there. We had a very nice and spacious room, great view to the ocean you could actually see from our bed.... More
