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. Below are my thoughts on this place and my stay in July... More

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

This resort is made for families. Giant pool, waterfront with activities. Kids club etc. This is an immaculate facility with lovely gardens featuring koi and flamingo. The exotic birds are a nice touch and can be held during the day. The luau was excellent. The only drawback was that it was not directly on the beach which most are. The... More

We stayed at this property to use a promotion and it was definitely worth the discounted trip. Because of the promotion, our room faced the parking lot and highway in Bldg 4. It wasn't a big minus for us as we don't spend a lot of time in the room and the deal was so good. However, we did ask... More

My wife and I are Starwoods owners and Starwoods Preferred Guests (Gold)..That meant absolutely nothing. I booked 3 rooms for a family vacation months in advance. When it came time to check in, they had assigned us rooms in 3 different buidlings with less than desirable views. Because the property was running at capacity, we had to settle for less... More

Absolutely perfect! We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at The Westin Villas. Prior to staying here we were in Kihei and Waikiki. I'm so glad we saved the best for last. We had booked a studio but were upgraded to a one bedroom when we arrived, which was ENORMOUS and gorgeous. It was great to have a... More
