My Husband and I stayed at this resort on out Honeymoon. The Resort: We honestly spend very little time at resorts, we use them as a place to sleep but spend most of our vacation exploring. From what I experienced the resort was nicely laid out, fair amount of options for dining and offered access to the beach. The pools... More

We have stayed at ocean villas north various times. As the location has gotten more popular the resort really needs to keep up with enhancements. Here's some things to focus. The pool deck needs to be extended into the grass. There are too many chairs piled together at pool with no room. You seriously have to climb on top of... More

We stayed 4 nights and found the Westin villas to be great for our family. The kids could frolic in the pool for hours, we were walking distance to lots of restaurant options, you can snorkel right off the beach, and the villa has everything we need. It's a big place and with 7 stories (I think) and you can... More

Feb 2015: 2nd trip to the out-of-my-usual-budget location on Maui the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort. The room was a great great room but only at the reduced rate. The grounds are beautiful but then most locations on Maui are marvelous. The shuttle to the Whaler complex or Lahania was very well run and that takes the worry out of a... More

We stayed for 5 days during peak whale watching. Thinking the promo rate was just because I was a SPG member we were invited to a time share presentation upon arrival, which was fine. The room was spacious and had partial ocean views to the north and south. It also had a relaxing balcony. There was no noise from other... More

This is the third time I've stayed at the Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas over an 8-year period and I've loved it every time. The Lahaina area of Maui is delightful and the beaches along Ka'anapali are beautiful. Snorkeling right off the beach is great, especially around Black Rock. My 10 and 13-year-old grandsons were thrilled to swim with giant... More

Aloha MarciaArizona, Mahalo for your review. We greatly appreciate your outstanding rating and would like to thank you for allowing us to welcome you back for the third time. We enjoyed hearing about your grandkids snorkeling experience, it is not every day that someone is able to say they swam with giant sea turtles and beautiful tropical fishes. We hope... More

We go every year and have come to expect the friendly and attentive staff and have yet to be disappointed. If there was any down side it was Mother Nature and what she had done to the beach but she was bringing it back. I wish they would enforce their pool rules.

we are owners on the south property, coming to Maui since 2004. This was the best week ever. Not just for the fabulous weather, mild, sunny with calm seas every day. The resort has made some welcome changes too. The trees along the beach have been thinned, improving the ocean views from the rooms. Entry doors to the buildings are... More

Just returned from a stay at the Westin Villas with my husband and three children, ages 17, 14, and 12. This is one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed at. Our villa gave us enough space to relax and to rest. It was clean and updated. Our "garden view" actually gave us a view of the ocean with... More

As a Starwood card holder I received an offer in the mail for this resort. It seemed too good to be true....but I'm so glad we decided to go! This resort is by far the nicest place our family has vacationed. The room was perfect (with a small kitchen! And laundry machines, that we didn't need) Even the pull out... More
