Enjoyed a family reunion at this resort. Our family had 4 different units. They were all decorated very nice and well stocked. None of the units disappointed. There is a Safeway a few miles from the condo which was perfect to stock the pantry and the bar. Not overpriced at all. There is also a Cotsco at the airport. The... More

We stayed at the Kaanapali Alii for one week over Spring Break. We requested a 1 bedroom unit with a partial ocean view. We were in unit 2112 and had a nice view of the ocean from our balcony and dining table, and part of our living room. We also had a beautiful view of the mountains. Our unit had... More

The Alii is great; we have stayed there several times now and it never disappoints. There's a great little surf wave out front and it's a short stroll down to black rock for killer snorkeling. It's close to the shops and restaurants at Whaler's Village but also very private within the complex. Great pools, awesome barbecues and even a professional... More

My family and I spent eight nights at Kaanapali Alii in March. It was nothing short of paradise. The view from our 2 bedroom condo was fantastic. Having a condo provided ample room for my family to have their own space. The location is close to everything. The only complaint would be the quality of the linens. But this is... More

We had a beautiful 2 bedroom ocean front unit. We were traveling with another couple and would suggest that this is a better choices for families than for 2 couples. Our unit had one lovely master bedroom suite that was far superior to the second bedroom. It was larger, had a better view, and a bath tub. So, if you... More

I found this resort on trip advisor and felt confident to book our vacation. We stayed March 8-14, 2015. I booked directly with the resort via their website. Every picture is exactly what we received! We paid for ocean view, 2 bedroom, 2 bath and it was perfect. The staff is approachable, available and discreet. The condos are impeccable and... More

This property doesn't really need another 5 star review but now that I'm a traveling family man I thought I'd chime in on that aspect. This is really where you want to go with small children. The gourmet kitchen makes everything much easier with small kids, not to mention saving $$$. We had pretty crummy weather (a first for us... More

We stayed in a gorgeous 2 bedroom condo overlooking the ocean with a huge porch. Beautiful facility and very friendship staff. So nice to have a huge fully equipped kitchen rather than a hotel room. Beautiful pool and steps to the beach!

The Kaanapali Alii was all that we were looking for. We had a one bedroom 2 bathroom unit on the 3rd floor with a partial ocean view. Upon check in the valet explained how the parking worked and parked our car the first time. We were shown to our room and all the bags were brought up for us. We... More
