Great spot right on the beach, love the pool and bbq area, rooms and service was fantastic. Definitely a family resort. Close to other things as well. No drink or bar service though. Would go with family, but not as a couple.

Our family of 4 just stayed in a 2 bedroom (which was actually a e bedroom with bunk beds) for a week. Building 1, 11th floor, room 3. Could not have been better. For the same money to get a 5 star hotel for a week, we had 1900 square feet, full kitchen, living room and 2 full faths. Westin... More

We just returned from a weeks vacation to Maui and the Kaanapali Alii. We stayed in building 2 on the 9th floor with an ocean view (room 293). The view was spectacular and I would definitely recommend either building 2 or 3 unless you are able to get an end unit in buildings 1 and 4. Also, try and get... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for one week in a one bedroom unit in Building 2. The condo was great, lots of space. The den was made into a bedroom so it was like a 2 bedroom unit. Our ocean view was awesome and the condo was modern and updated. The washer and dryer in the unit was extremely... More

We traveled to Maui July 31-August 7. I did quite a bit of research with my amazing travel agent, Maui Kay, and came up with this condo. It was unbelievable. We have two girls, 12 and 14, so we wanted them to have their own room to share. We were blown away by how much space we had. Two large... More

Great place but very large. We were 3 people and we made an effort to use all the space. If you have a relatively large family this is certainly staying in style but you could duplicate in houses if you want. Centrally located and a great hotel like environment. Some of concierge desk not very helpful.

We visited Maui in June 2014 to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary along with a few other families. It was an awesome vacation. The condos at the Ka'anapali Alii were wonderful. We had a 1 bedroom condo for the 4 of us in our family - it was so spacious and very updated. A one bedroom is really like... More

This complex was fantastic. The condo was incredible. Huge with 2 bedrooms and a pullout in the living room. Views of the ocean were phenomenal. Close to Whalers Village with great restaurants and shopping. The beach was clean and the waves were plentiful for the kids. If we ever take the LONG flight back to Hawaii this is the only... More

This was our second stay at the Kaanapali Alii, and we were very happy to stay there again. Last time we had an ocean view one-bedroom which looked as if it had just been redone. This time we were on a tighter budget so we reserved a partial ocean view room. We had a good view of the ocean from... More
