We had two condos, one which faced the mountains and one ocean view. both were updated, but one was more so. Very decent quality. Staff were responsive. Checkin was efficient. AC worked well. Beachfront is decent. BBQ devices are available but not much used.

Our family stayed at the beautiful Kaanapali Alii for 7 nights in July 2015. Overall, we had an exceptional stay! The staff was very helpful at check-in and with helping us and all of our luggage to the room. We stayed in unit 286. The condo was wonderful for our family of 2 adults and 4 children. The kitchen was... More

This resort has a great location directly on Kaanapali beach next to the Westin with a five minute walk to the shops/restaurants at Whalers Village. I stayed in #432 and it had a great view of the ocean. The condo was stocked with everything in the kitchen and there also was a cooler and four beach chairs. The service is... More

Different condo units are owned and maintained by different owners and/or property management companies, therefore unit interior will vary greatly. Even availability of free wi-fi is dependent on the unit/owner. Some are updated, others are very outdated. This review is primarily for the hotel location, grounds/common areas and overall experience. The property is located right on the beach. Its a... More

This is a great place to stay. It's a condo type property so it has no bars or restaurant. However you can walk next door to the other hotels and order food or have it delivered to you and charge to your room with a bit of effort and hassle. The beach is excellent for family's and children. Waves here... More

Just spent 12 days at the Alii with our kids and grandkids. We were married there and we absolutely love it. It's our favorite place on the planet and we can't wait to return. Best service, rooms, beach, staff - the Alii has it all!

This condo complex was highly rated by others, but we were not told that they would be shutting down for renovations after our stay. This shutdown caused several impacts. 1 our choice of rooms was very limited since they had been preparing for the shutdown, we were not able to get our two rooms in the same complex due to... More

I have stayed at the KA MANY times over the past six years and it has been wonderful each time. Unless you know the unit to request, you don't know which one you will get. They are usually all wonderful, although they are indiviually owned. This time I spent a week in Maui - but stayed in two places.... one... More

Had another great trip to Maui with our second stay at Kaanapali Alii. When we first arrived we were on the second floor, we wanted to be a little higher, so they graciously moved us to the 4th floor the second night. Chris was very nice and assisted us with our luggage and food which we purchased from Costco on... More

I went to Maui with my mom and sister in July 2015 and we stayed at the Ka'anapali Ali'i. It was definitely an outstanding place to stay. The hotel is right on the beach with easy access to the beach walk. Whaler's Village is a short 5 minutes walk north up the beach and is filled with shops and restaurants.... More
