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

Stayed here in a 2 bedroom, 9th floor ocean front condo with my family of 6 (all adults).The view from our balcony which had seating for 5 was outstanding, overlooking the ocean and the island of Lanai. Full sized washer/dryer was a godsend.Kitchen was nicely appointed and the condo came with daily maid service and the usual hotel amenities (soap,shampoo,... More

We've tried other places but still come back to Alii. We love the pool area - how close it is to the beach and each of the rooms we've stayed in. This time we were in 184 and rented through VRBO - would not hesitate to book this again. We were in a 2 bedroom condo which easily accommodated 5... More

Have been in the travel business for 30 years - visited the Hawaiian Islands over 50 times. Stayed at the Alii in the 80"s. And stayed again last year. Best Condo in the Kaanapali area by far !! Renovations are upscale - great service - perfect location. Plan to book again many times!

We had the luxury of staing on Maui for 10 days, so we stayed at the Honua Kai Resort for 6 days & the Kaanapali Resort for the final 4(see HK review). KA is a very well managed/maintained resort, geared for quieter families than HK. I requested a queen size bed in the den with an oceanfront view on an... More

Just came home from a weeks vacation, July 7-15, and our second stay at the Alii. We loved it last year so much that my wife and daughter (19) insisted we stay again this year, and we loved it just as much. We had another great room with an even better view of the ocean. It's located on the beautiful... More

The service was great and the room/condo was nice and spacious. However, I blame myself for assuming a big hotel like this would have restaurants or at least a grill by the pool. Clearly I didn't do enough research. No pina coladas by the pool here, unless you make them yourself and bring them to the pool. Our kids were... More

We LOVED our condo. The condo we stayed in was huge and the partial ocean view was great. Everyone in my family said it was the nicest room we have ever had on a vacation. It was great being close to Whaler's Village (3-5 min walk). The only con was the huge amount of kids in both the normal pool... More

Recently stayed at the Alii for 8 nights. The location was excellent, and the condo exceeded our expectations. The condo was clean, modern and spacious. The Alii staff were all very friendly, including front desk, concierge, housekeeping, and the beach/pool area. The views were terrific from our 1 bedroom ocean view unit #351. Our room had the den with a... More
