What a beautiful location, on its own bay, overlooking the ocean. We were greeted with a glass of passion fruit juice and a smile. Our original room was a beachfront studio but overlooked the pool and putting green more than the ocean. The manager was very helpful and we were able to upgrade to a beautiful oceanfront studio corner unit... More

This was our second time staying at the Napili Kai Resort and it was awesome! I surprised my wife for her 40th b-day and we had the best trip ever. Super helpful and friendly staff. Very low key and relaxed experience that totally captures the Aloha sprit. Our room had a great view of the ocean and was very clean... More

It was our first trip to Maui, but not to the Hawaiian Islands. I was nervous about booking a place, so I asked around. Many folks recommended the Napili Kai. As you have read in many reviews on this site, people found the rooms to be outdated. I can only review the room that I stayed in, which was in... More

This little "gem" of a location must've represented nirvana in its heyday - gorgeous setting, tasteful & unobtrusive layout of the grounds and all amenities - probably really top-notch about 50 years ago. Unfortunately, the unit provided to my wife and me was maybe a 7 on the 1-10 scale, since it's winter (no A/C). It'll be no better than... More

This was our first stay Napili Kai, fifth to Maui. Napili Kai is by far the best place we have stayed on the island to date. The location is perfect, within a stones throw of awesome snorkeling at Kapalua Bay, the snorkeling in Napili Bay is good too, saw a few turtles in the bay during our stay. Great views... More

We absolutely loved the people and the accommodations of Napili Kai. The "Napili Kai 'Family' " that we met were outstanding as well. This group of approx. 60 guests have been gathering at Napili Kai for over the past 20+ years at the same time each year. As first timers, we were taken in by the "Family" as new members... More

After getting in late to Maui and arriving at the resort we were told we were upgraded from a beach front room to one in Puna II bldg. which is completely remodeled. It was late and we weren't going to argue. Planned on checking out where we were supposed to be staying in the morning. After deciding we loved our... More

I booked this trip for my honeymoon and realize that I made a terrible mistake. The service is horrible. I am met with an attitude and laziness everywhere I go. On top of that, the server delivered jam to my table for breakfast. Thank you for all of the ants that were included with the jam. That was appetizing. We... More

My husband and I went to this resort for 10 days. We had been to Maui in the past and stayed at resorts closer to Lahaina. Last year we stayed at the Sheraton and loved it. We did not think any resort would be better than the Sheraton and the Sheraton's location. But we were wrong. We enjoyed the Napili... More

We stayed for 10 days in this great resort during their 50th Anniversary, with our 11 year old daughter. It was relaxing and fun with activities every day if you wanted to join in either at 10 am or later in the day. Enjoyed an amazing children's mini luau show put on by the Napili Kai Foundation. The staff were... More
