We stayed at the Westin here many years ago, were invited back at a great rate & decided to take advantage of it. The property is really nice with well maintained grounds & a huge, helpful staff. We stayed in 2301 (with a view of the pool & ocean beyond with a nicely sized patio), a one bedroom unit &... More

I read a review posted here that dumbfounded me--someone had mistaken the Westin Maui Hotel for this timeshare resort. They're mixing apples and oranges, folks! The Westin Hotel is wonderful, no doubt, and has an amazing pool complex. But the Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas, particularly our original South side, is amazing on its own. The pools are wonderful, and... More

I was not expecting there to be so many families there.the good news is it.s family with young kids friendly but a snore for teens. There are designated adult only pools and hotmtubs so no problem getting away from the crowds. The italian restaurant was pricey BUT worth every penny. Allergy friendly if you speak with the chef and have... More

We went to the Westin twice- 6 and 8 years ago, and the grounds/pool/beach were awesome!!! Then we made the HUGE mistake of buying a timeshare in Orlando that allows us to trade to a few other properties. As with all Timeshares, 90% of the time you cannot get the week or resort you want. Anyways, got a timeshare week... More

This being our first trip to Hawaii, we were beyond stoked. Our friends were providing their timeshare at the Westin Villas. We arrived before the rest of the crew and the staff at the resort was more than happy to hold our luggage and provide us with keys to the lounge so we could change and head to the beach.... More

We have stayed at the Kaanapali Villas three times, and they all have been quite pleasant. The location is wonderful, and in the North building, almost all have some type of ocean view. The rooms are comfortable, especially the one bedrooms.

Having travelled half way around the world for our honeymoon, we were expecting something great...and were not disappointed. The resort, though big and fully booked, never felt crowded or loud. Beautiful grounds and pools. We (Europeans) really enjoyed all the amenities offered (shops, ATM, DVD rental etc...) that we're not used to getting in european resorts. Staff throughout the hotel...
