Our fourth trip to Maui and first time in a condo. Room was beautiful, with partial ocean view and recently remodeled. All staff members were polite and helpful. A squeaky door and burned out light bulb were fixed in minutes after calling front desk. The grills downstairs were immaculate and friendly staff (esp. McNeal) helped advise about cooking.

Our family of four (including two teenage girls) stayed in a one bedroom ocean view condo for five nights. We were previously looking at a two bedroom but thanks to a review on TripAdvisor we found out that the one bedroom condos have what they call a den which is actually more like a second bedroom with a double bed,...

This trip to Maui was our first visit to Hawaii and a celebration of our 40th anniversary. To make certain it was a great memory for us, I relied on suggestions from longtime friends who had traveled to Hawaii on many occasions. The first tip I took was the time of year - mid-January. We had 10 glorious days of... More

Although we had been in Maui before, this was to be my 80th birthday, so we brought our two 50+-year-old "kids" and their significant others along with us for a deluxe family vacation --- we have no grandchildren. Forsaking our usual practice of doing our own planning for travel, I discovered MauiKay.com, and Kay Ryan through several Trip Advisor references... More

Love the location of this property right on the beach in Maui. After all, that is what you come to Hawaii for, spectacular beach and ocean views! Add to that the luxury of staying in a fully equipped condo with the property's own private pool by the beach; and being walking distance to Starbucks, beachfront restaurants, Whalers village etc, what...

Here for my 20+ time in Maui, staying at our favorite condo resort. Can't beat grilling ocean front with the complimentary grill chef by your side. If you are looking for the best condo complex on the best beach in Maui, the Alii is your spot. Aloha

We've stayed 6 times in Maui, each time in a different area, as a family of 4 and the Alii is our absolute favourite spot! The beach is top notch with just the right amount of waves to do surfing or boogie boarding, 2 pools and hot tubs and a 5 min walk to Whalers Village and Starbucks to keep... More

My husband and I went here and loved it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Best location. It is actually condos you rent so there is a full kitchen and they are different sizes. We rented one with a partial ocean/ partial mountain view. I loved seeing both. The condo was clean, homey and quite nice. It was a... More

Our 5 person family stayed at Kaanapali Alii in Maui for spring bk 2014. We considered staying at some more expensive locations, but were really pleased with our decision. Excellent choice due to superb location (beachfront), generous living space (two bedrooms), full kitchen, quiet, balcony with ocean view, terrific pool and reasonable rate. Plenty of activity around the condo, including... More
