Renewal of our 15 year commitment. Loved the atmosphere. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Steps from the beach. I wanna go back soon!! My favourite resturant in Maui, venture the local cuisine and order side of corned beef and side of rice. Don't forget about the free magnet.

We loved staying at this resort. We found the staff very friendly and we were very pleasantly surprised on arrival to be upgraded from a studio to a one bedroom suite because we had mentioned it was our 60th anniversary. It was beautiful with a full ocean view in the Aloha building. We were disappointed that the balcony was too... More

We stayed at the villas between April 5th and 13th and the resort was amazing. The location, although not in the centre of everything, was still amazing! We could walk or take the Ka'anapali Trolley to locations nearby. We stayed in room 168 (studio garden view) and loved it. The la'nai was a great place to have breakfast or some... More

This place was so mixed for us I have to give it a poor/average review despite the great location. When we checked in the front desk was helpful, but it went downhill after that. The room was nice, but on the ground floor, so everyone walking by the pool could look in. You don't stay at the beach to keep... More

We had a great experience! The location is absolutely perfect. Right in front of the best beach. Very close to the corals for snorkeling. The staff was absolutely amicable and polite and answered all questions. The bar at the beach was awesome. There were tennis courts and a gym, although we didn't use either I could see people playing tennis... More

We booked and pre-paid via a travel agent. On leaving we were given a bill for "resort fees" of over$200, covering things usually covered by the room rate, such as in-room safe. Such a cheap scam for an allegedly top class hotel

This was my first time coming to Maui and I was traveling by myself to attend my best friends wedding. I chose the Kannapali Villas because it was it was very close to the Royal Lahaina where they were staying. When I first checked in I was very pleased with the first room I stayed in which was 619. I... More

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit. I am truly sorry to hear there was a mouse in your room and even sorrier to hear that our staff was unhelpful when you reported it. It is especially unfortunate since it sounds like you were off to a good start with us, but we dropped... More

Went to Maui and stayed at the Villas for the ninth time. It is an incredible, spacious and quiet resort. We had a family vacation staying for two weeks and in my many visits there I have found that the Villas is both empty nester friendly as well kid and family friendly. Each unit I have had the privilege of... More

We stayed at MKV in March of 2015. We loved our stay!! I do have to mention, however, that we did book through VRBO and rented unit 162. From previous reviews, I was a little nervous due to the mixed raves and complaints. However, I was SO happy with our choice. Our personal experiences with the hotel and the staff... More

We are Diamond Resort Platinum members and normally spend our time in Maui at either the Kaanapoli Beach Club or it's next-door resort, Kaanapoli Shores. This is our first time at the Aston Maui Kaanapoli Villas booking through Diamond, and are very impressed with this property. Beginning at the check-in, everything has been absolutely first-class. The "garden view" room is... More
