We have stayed in Napili several times and like its quieter pace than the nearby Kaanapali area. Napili Kai is more expensive than the resort we stayed at previously but we loved it because it is right on the beach. Our studio room was extremely comfortable with the ocean not 50 yards from our lanai. The only thing we were... More

I stayed at Napili Kai the first week in January. It is a wonderful resort located right on a beautiful and calm bay, perfect for swimming, snorkeling, SUP or whale watching. The resort has a very authentic Hawaiian feel, which I loved. The Oceanview studio was recently renovated and everything was brand new and beautiful. They have a nice selection... More

This was a great place to stay for our first trip to Maui. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because we are in love with the Mauna Kea on the big island and it is hard for any hotel to live up the that architectural masterpiece and the gorgeousness of that beach. Also, there are some things that... More

Loved every minute of our stay here. Absolutely gorgeous views and plenty of places to relax without getting too crowded. Several grills set up by the water , first come first serve policy but honestly would be surprised if you can't find one right away. Definitely will recommend to friends and can't wait to get back!

We stayed in an oceanfront 1-bedroom that our family booked through Donna Bender of MauiCalls. Suffice it to say we had a wonderful time and experience while lounging around at Napili Kai Beach Resort; the room was very nice having been updated not too recently and the view...spectacular! The one thing I very much appreciate about Napili Kai Beach Resort... More

I was at a group event there, and had a lovely time, but the Napili Kai was just the most beautiful place. I shared a room so I slept on a twin-size that doubled as a sofa, but it was still comfortable and clean and perfect. There is central air, a ceiling fan, a full balcony with lounge chairs overlooking... More

Having stayed a total of three times at Napili Kai Beach Resort, I have always been very impressed with the beautiful sea front Beach location, varied and delicious food menu, friendliness of all staff and cleanliness and efficiency of housekeeping staff. I stayed as part of a Retreat in December and although it was a very large Retreat, the choice... More

We had never been to Hawaii when we booked Napili Kai. We arrived late at night from the east coast, and in the morning we woke up to a wonderland! Gorgeous views from our lanai, Christmas tree in the open lobby, fragrant flowers, and the most beautiful ocean we had seen. It was spectacular. They gave us a special teddy... More

This is an older resort that multiple generations of families keep returning to. We booked two oceanfront one-bedroom units through Donna Bender of MauiCalls, whom we highly recommend. The property is ideally located at the north end of Napili Bay. It is definitely not the type of high rise condo with multiple pools and water slides and other amenities favored... More

As can be found on the numerous reviews found here, this resort has many features that may not suit every person. Be aware of your room type and possible locations before you book. Your travel agent can provide you with, or you can find on the website, a detailed property map with clear descriptions. Some of the buildings are renovated,... More
