My wife and I had hustled around Oahu and the Big Island and wrapped up our vacation on Maui at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. It's sits among the big name hotels with a bigger lawn facing the ocean and is run and operated by local Hawaiians. This place was the perfect ending to our trip. The hotel is very welcoming,...

I found this hotel to be similar to several other hotels in the general area. Like the other larger hotels, this property offers a "resort experience" and not a "condo" experience. When considering a trip to this area, look into both options to determine the best fit to suit your expectations. This is an older property, but I think the... More

We got a really nice room on the second floor. There's no elevator, so it was a nice work out to climb the stairs. We had partial ocean view, the room was clean and the hotel had beach towels we could borrow. The only downside was the wifi connection. It was free, but I would rather have paid for it... More

This is a great hotel. It's buildings and rooms are somewhat dated, since it was built in 1964, but it more than makes up for it with great attitude from the staff, and a park like common area and pool that you are free to pretty much make your own. The employees have been there an average of 18 years... More

Great staff, nice location, clean rooms, grounds etc. they were in the process of updating so no wifi in our room, but that was the only downer. Will stay here against time we visit. Right exit door is The Whaler with tons of shops. Great snorkeling just past the resort, we swam with like 12 turtles.

This is a resort style hotel which seems the norm here in Maui. Sitting right on the beach with lovely garden. There is a small pool which is full of kids and not good if you want to have any excerise swim . There is a daily show in the outside courtyard. Also free breakfast introduction which is really helpful.... More

Kaanapali Hotel was Wonderful! Clean, comfortable and very Hawaiian. We stayed in the Kaua’I wing on the 5th floor and had a great room and view. It was nice to have a breakfast buffet (including a few local foods) every morning to start your day. The staff was friendly, helpful and constantly cleaning the hotel and grounds. The hotel has...

My boyfriend and I came here for vacation August 12-18th and we loved it. The staff was really sweet and were always polite, even at 6:30 am when we would go have breakfast. The room was nice and decorated with Hawaiian pictures and lots of green. We had a partial ocean view which was nice because you can see all... More

This is a bit of a mixed review. We booked this hotel through a diffrent travel site which included pictures and amenities. When we checked found out fitness facilities meant a gym at the strip mall they gives discounts to guest and kreurg was only in certain rooms. So the boxes of pods I packed were a waste. The room...
