This is our favorite place to stay when in Maui. The location is perfect--steps from the beach and snorkeling. Parking is convenient and the units are nicely appointed. We stay in an ocean view unit which has all the conveniences of home. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. The grounds, outdoor kitchen and pool areas are immaculate. We have... More

We booked a 2-bedroom partial ocean view unit but were given a 3-bedroom unit instead. The unit (#153) is very spacious and has a perfect ocean view and partial view of the next-door Westin's pool. The property is within walking distance to the Whalers village where you can find a lot of nice restaurants and shops. The beach is clean... More

This resort is in a perfect location next to the whalers village, next to golf course and of course right on the more beautiful beach. The rooms are very spacious and have everything you need. We were so comfortable and happy here we will definitely come back here again.

I stayed a couple days and the beaches were great. When they ran out of hot chocolate the guy ran and bought some next door which is what explains that they have great service. The conclusion is that you definitely if you're going to Maui should go there.

As two couples traveling together, looking for nice accomodations with a central area to congregate for drinks, snack, etc. the Kaanapali Alii suited us perfectly. We also appreciated the central location, easily accessible to the Safeway, Ka'anapali golf and wonderful restaurants in Lahaina and Kapalua. We were not looking for service or amenities but I did notice an excellent fitness... More

Disgusting old linens, tired furniture, old uncomfortable beds. It was like the Golden Girls checked out of the room 30 years ago and no one updated a thing. To say this is a 4 star would be the over exaggeration of the century. The resort is ok, pool chairs etc quite old and worn. For 500 a night, you can... More

Travelled as a family with two small children plus two grandparents. Booked directly with Classic Resorts and requested a two bedroom condo, newly renovated with an ocean view. They advised to also request a room with a separate den which could function as a 3rd bedroom. The room we got (374) was fantastic! Met all of our needs perfectly; a... More

We chose this condo for our first family trip to Maui due to TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The resort is beautiful. Keep in mind that this is not a hotel. These are condos that you reserve and each condo is differently furnished since they are individually owned. We made reservations through the resort but apparently you can rent... More

On our third trip to Hawaii we decided to book the Alii for our family of four. Given what I'd previously read on Trip Advisor I was highly confident of our decision but had no idea of the greatness that awaited. Simply - from arrival to departure you are treated like royalty. The residences here are 1-2 bedroom apartments stunningly... More

Third time to Maui and I loved staying at the Kannapali Alii. Great location next to the beach and the staff is great to work with. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Used the hot tub a lot as it was a bit cool the week we were there. Definitely stay there again. Views are amazing.
