The property is absolutely fabulous and very well maintained. One can just stay on the property and enjoy your entire vacation. The beach is awesome for snorkeling. The location is prime. The food choice is limited and overprice for both quantity and taste. My guess is probably because villas have their own kitchen. The front desk was accommodating and upgraded... More

Visited July 12 - 19, 2014. Top notch property with excellent service. I am an owner, having last stayed at this property in 2010. The property had been updated and was very clean. The location couldn't be better and one truly enjoys the most magnificent sunset views. Snorkeling is a must. No problem snagging chairs under the umbrella by the... More

Beautiful and well kept property. Awesome staff. Nice rooms and comfortable beds. Easy check-in. My biggest disappointment was the breakfast. Such stale food. I just returned from India staying at the Westin in Hyderabad serving a 30 course breakfast. And here is Maui I was treated to cold and stale breakfast with limited choices. The bar and grill onsite has... More

What a fun and relaxing experience with friends and family at the Westin Villas. The staff is over the top friendly and pleasant. The amenities are awesome, but the villas themselves are spectacular. Well designed and appointed makes it easy to feel right at home. The coral reef just out front of the resort was a huge surprise and we... More

This review is past due, we booked a two bedroom ocean view condo in March of 2013, while our accommodations were comfortable, clean, spacious, the view was nice and we had a washer and dryer, the resort itself was crowded and often times chaotic. Yes, it was spring break and while we were prepared for this, it was crazier than... More

I am an owner since 2008 at the Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas (South) and have a two Bedroom Ocean View Villa. I am a loyal Starwood Guest and have achieved Lifetime Platinum status on SPG, so I clearly have stayed at many of their properties over the years.

It's a great resort, but NO WAY I WOULD BUY AGAIN HERE. The sales people promise you the world when you buy, and when it's time to get your room, you get a 1 floor room. So much for that Ocean View room you paid for. You're MUCH BETTER OFF just renting or checking one of the many vacation rental... More

We stayed a week in a one bedroom unit with ocean front views which was beautiful. We were told that we could park in the underground garage when we arrived, but there were no bellhops available so we had to go up a floor to find one that could help with our luggage. The bellhop was very courteous and assisted... More

I am disappointed in the hotel. I was expecting more from a starwood hotel as I had recently been to a St. Regis in Mexico which was wonderful. It is a good place to go if you have young kids. For me though, it was too crowded, too big, the restaurants on property underwhelming. The concierge was only OK, polite... More

I have to preface this review by stating that although this was a family trip, it was a family of adults (I am the youngest at 29), so this review is probably not applicable to those with young children! This resort is completely made for families, which is great, but not what we were looking for. The Rooms: My parents... More
