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

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!

The Weston was once again a great vaction spot for our family. Very clean rooms and great service. This was our second year at the Weston. The shuttle is great for taking you to Lahaina or other properties and is well maintained.

If you’re looking for a big, expensive resort for the family, this is your place. If you’re looking for a quiet getaway without the kids, I’d look somewhere else. Don’t get me wrong, this is a beautiful resort and all of the staff are very friendly and want to ensure that you have the best vacation possible. But it is... More

There have been some negative reports on the Westin Ocean Villas but our experience was very good and that is what counts for us. Several staff members went out of their way to be helpful. Our 450 sq. ft. room was well-equiped and comfortable, with a jet tub, walk-in shower, full size refrigerator and small washer/dryer combo. Valet parking was... More
