There were a number of different Westin's in Maui, in the Kaanapali area, this review pertains to the VACATION RESORT VILLAS. They are a time share, but I imagine you can rent a night for $400 or $500. It is a VERY TYPICAL vacation resort: great pools, play areas for children, structured activities, lots of very Hawaiian activities like snorkeling,... More

This is our second stay at the property within 1 1/2 years. Unlike the first stay, we came here this time under promotion for five-night stay, and used our Starpoints to extend another 2-night stay. It was generally a good experience until we had to check out after the first five-night stay today. Upon checking back in, we were told... More

We love this resort we have come every year since 2004. Stayed in both North and South side this year. Rooms are well maintained and the Pool staff is very friendly. In particular Wes was very helpful. Snorkeling at the beach in front of the resort is great.

We rented from the owner for the week July 25th-Aug 1st. Our first time at this resort. If you can upgrade to a 1BR villa, it is WELL WORTH IT. We were in Building 3 4th floor and had a beautiful partial view of the ocean from our living room and balcony. The King Bed provides an awesome sleep with... More

Although the resort is beautiful, we are extremely saddened to say that we would not recommend this resort to anyone who wants to come to Maui to enjoy the beach. Why you might ask? It's because they charge $10 per beach chair and $20 per umbrella per day. You also can't enjoy the sunset because the chair guys want to... More

We had an amazing experience at the Westin in Maui. It started with Joyrama checking us in and after a long day she upgraded us to a 1 bedroom suite. Our room was amazing with a full kitchen, living room and bedroom. It was like our own luxury apartment. I would highly recommend this property!

The Ocean Villas is a great property. The rooms are huge and the grounds are breathtaking. The pool area is excellent. And the restaurants are well above average. Hawaii is a very expensive place to visit with a family of 4. The Westin staff were excellent in helping us plan daily outings. My only complaint is charging for chairs on... More

I went here for my 30th and my mother's 60th birthday, our birthdays are 5 days a part. We had been staying at a nice condo and for the night of my birthday my mother surprised me with a night here. The hotel had agreed to give us a special rate since my mom contacted them and explained that she... More

Thank you to Joyrama who greeted us with a smile and extended an upgrade to us as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. It made all the difference in the world! Loved the one bedroom villa, pools and the most beautiful beach. We didn't like having to rent beach chairs..but we loved the space and the gorgeous evenings on... More
