This was our fourth visit to the WKORVs. We have stayed in both North and South sections, with and without friends. This was our anniversary so it was just the two of us. We were in the south section in a corner unit which had a huge lanai. Let me say we have never had a bad stay. If you... More

Any couple could stay at this resort and walk to get anything that one would want for the entire week! The grills are cleaned every day the grounds are kept to the highest degree of cleanliness. Snorkeling was right out side the room with thousands of fish, turtles, squid and other wild life. We are ready to go back really... More

The beach access, hotel pool, grounds were beautiful (well-manicured like a botanical garden! but with water rides too). it was our first day in Maui, so we were too thrilled to not feel great about the place. we didn't spend much time at the hotel after the first evening, but the room service was great, especially after you bring the...

I would definately go back here! Aside from a few little things like $10 fee everytime for a beach chair, I mean cmon really ?! Pool cabanas are nice but cost big bucks to rent so you can easily stick to regular pool chairs. Barbecue area is very useful if you dont want to eat out all the time. Grande... More

Spent a week here and loved every minute. There are several pools to pick one including a whole area for families with young kids. You can rent beach chairs and an umbrella which we highly recommend as we spent every day but one on the beach instead of at the pool. Every day, we saw whales in the distance (no... More

This place is over the top amazing, walking into lobby took my breath away! After staying at such a amazing place we could never stay anyplace else. The people are so kind and helpful, the grounds are super clean and manicured, super kid friendly and the snorkeling was unbelievable! I could go on and on!

This Westin property is great. The South villas (the original ones) have much better ocean front views, while the North villas are more "family" oriented with more pools and things for kids to do. Both have barbecue pits for outdoor grilling, full kitchens (depending on the unit), and are located near local shopping areas that include fresh fish. I highly... More

My husband and I visited the first week of December for 5 nights. We've been to Maui prior so really enjoy the Ka'anapali area. Westin did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to meet Sheena at check in and she treated us with great care. Westin is very fortunate to have her as an employee! We then met Amanda (concierge)... More

I will likely be not staying at the Westin resort, as I didn't have good experience dealing with the front desk folks whether that had to do with the missing go-green credit or breakfast vouchers confusion or talking about late check-out. The front desk individuals are quick to say that the resort doesn't offer / care for starwood preferred guests,... More

From the moment we arrived the entire staff was very friendly and helpful. After grocery shopping for the week the bellman offered to remove our groceries from the car and bring them to our room.

Aloha Travelgal60s, Mahalo for your kind words. We are very pleased to read your roaring comments about our resort. And I couldn’t agree with you more on the beach.
