I've been a SPG Platinum member for over 10 years and I've stayed at SPG properties all over the globe, but I've never been treated with such indifference as I was when staying at the Westing Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas the past couple of days. It started when we checked in. I booked a "ocean view" one bedroom suite but... More

Full disclosure, we've been owners here since 2007. We visit twice a year. We really love this place. The rooms are super nice. You can get a studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom lockoff. We brought our kids and grandkids here (10 total) in October for a family trip and had a wonderful time. The beach here is one of... More

We have never failed to have a great time at this resort, mainly because of the location. It's easy to come to the villa for a week with family as the rooms have a kitchenette and the ability to do laundry. Housekeeping is ok. Beach is first rate but wear reef shoes! Customer service is fairly good. I would say... More

This was our 5th trip to Maui. We stay here every time. This time we brought out 3 kids and everyone had a wonderful time stayed two weeks and it still wasn't long enough. The kids found plenty of other kids at the pool to play with and they made life long friends.

Wonderful resort for family vacation in Maui. 5 swimming pools and great beach location Fantastic snorkeling right in front of resort and shuttle that will take you to Lahaina and other locations for free. The only negative is that the units are ready for a remodel or upgrade. They are not bad by any means but compared to a couple... More

This was our first time staying at the villas but it won't be the last! We are a family of four and came for an 8 day stay and had a blast. The grounds are beautiful and Westin really knows how to create a memorable experience. We had a couple of negative issues with the concierge desk but nothing worth... More

Place was like a condo. Great to have fridge, stove, laundry handy. Saved $ on meals & always had clean clothes. Resort is well cared for. We enjoyed the pool & restaurant. View from beach PHENOMENAL!

Right on the beach, with a pretty big pool. We stayed in the south tower, 3rd floor and the room was clean and up to date and had all the amenities that you could ask for (hairdryer, pans, utensils, dishes, etc). Kahekili park is right next to the resort which offers more beach time if you want and additional parking.... More

This hotel was awesome!! Perfect for our family trip to Maui...great pool, nice activities for the kids. The staff was very friendly, and they have a shuttle service that will take you to Lahaina every hour until after 10PM. The room was great, plenty of space for our family of 5, will definitely come back :)

Several years later we returned to the Westin Ka'anapali for a week's stay and found the resort is holding up well for its age. The property is relatively clean and the gardens quite pleasing while our bedroom bore telltale upgrades. Staff was very friendly and welcoming yet seemed overwhelmed since the place was crowded. . Fellow guests were lined up... More
