We stayed here as part of our honeymoon after getting married on Kauai and we were glad we chose this hotel. The title of Hawaii's most Hawaiian hotel is fully deserved as the guest experience is enhanced by the attitude of the staff. Having never been to Hawaii before we were concerned about the hotel and rooms but having requested... More

Ka'anapali Beach Hotel is surrounded by Sheratons and Westins and all those big name hotels. But it's different, and it's better. Someone had a vision and someone made a slogan "the most Hawaiian Hotel in Hawaii." It's a little surprising, in our world of fast and fancy, of get their attention but don't worry too much about keeping it, that... More

Although a bit dated, very relaxing hotel...really enjoyed the laid back grassy area around pool and under the trees. There was plenty of room around the pool on the lounges if wanted , but could easily just use the whole grassed area, or beach which is straight in front of hotel. Few hundred metres down the beach to black Rock... More

We just recently left this hotel and cannot get over how much we loved it there! It isn't the most updated or trendy, but how much time do you really spend in your room anyway? The views are beautiful, the beach is outstanding, the service can't be beat, it was amazing. The staff was so friendly and helpful, the bartenders... More

We spent a week here. It's tough to compare hotels at such a wonderful beach. They are all great. The staff here are quite friendly, and any time we had a question, they made an extra effort to be sure we got what we needed, quickly. The nightly hula shows, and the daily culture classes were quite entertaining. You can... More

CHECK IN AND OUT All went smoothly with no issues or surprises. The room safe rental is not included in your daily room rate, but is only $1.50 a day. Valet parking is available for $12.00 per day. ROOMS AND GROUNDS We found both to be very clean and well maintained. The staff in all areas were pleasant and helpful... More

This place was amazing, It has an awesome beach, I can't comment on the pool as we spent all our time in the ocean. There is an ocean front walk way the length of the beach that takes you in front all of the resorts on the waterfront. It has two restaurants, one is a nice buffet for breakfast, lunch... More

After 3 days in Honolulu and how insane the island of Oahu was, we came to Maui and the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel to get a sense of the real Hawaii I was expecting. No tourist traps, right on the beach and quiet. The room we had was a garden view room on the bottom floor and was fine for what... More
