This hotel has a very pleasant feel, staff are very friendly and the rooms are large and most seem to face over the gardens and pool, with higher floors also having a sea view. A nice feature is that nightly shows on the open stage feature local artists with a Hawaiian theme and these can be enjoyed from the open... More

I wasn't staying at the hotel, but I was in the Kaanapali area so decided to check out the free hula show that the Kaanapali Beach Hotel offers every night (except Mondays) in the Tiki Courtyard. I only stayed for the first hour, since I had somewhere else to be that night, but I got to see some talented children,... More

Our second stay here at Kaanapali Beach Hotel. Came for first time in February 2014 and mentioned in my review something about "why should rich folks have all the fun" or something like that. I stand by that still. This place is considerable cheaper than the Westin or Hyatt. The Hyatt in particular is like exiting a ride at Disneyland... More

This hotel is amazing. We got married on their lawn overlooking the ocean (so maybe I'm a little biased). Everything was perfect. The customer service at this hotel was the best we had on any island. We stayed for 7 days and in a ocean front hotel which I would recommend. We stayed in March and could see whales and... More

Visited Maui with my family and stayed here. We loved our room, pool, and the Starbucks coffee in the lobby. Would recommend highly! The whales in February are amazing, we could see them from our balcony. There was construction going on, but we hardly noticed!

1 star for location, the other star for price. When you compare it to all the other hotel/resorts along this strip in Maui, it is the least attractive. I think they use the "most Hawaiian hotel" in their description to deflect from the fact that a face lift is badly needed. The staff was friendly, the place was clean and... More

We stayed here for 7 nights and it was great- very relaxing. We had a hire car which meant we could get to other beachs and around Maui's attractions. Parking was easy. A highlight was cocktails of the day by the pool in the afternoon. No gym which was surprising and poor internet connection, but otherwise good

What a beautiful hotel! What a gorgeous view! Great breakfast buffet and other meals! Amazing pool! Friendly, accommodating, welcoming staff! The best beach on Maui!! It was the perfect setting to celebrate my parents' 45th wedding anniversary. It was their 3rd visit to Ka'anapali Beach Hotel and our first - me, my husband, my daughter and son - we all... More

Didn't throw our money away and they stick to the old school in Maui 'offerings' and it has a gorgeous beach with wonderful food outside so when you sit at poolside you feel like you are at The Four Seasons - except you're not being gouged (Keep your money for Maui wonders!! (Loved the Tiki Hut Mahi-Mahi sandwich!! ) Staff... More

We have stayed at the KBH many times and have never been disappointed. They truly are the most Hawaiian hotel. Just a short walk to the Whaler village or the Black rock. They offer a free breakfast where you can sign up for tours or activities. They offer a wide variety of things for children also. They never push you... More
