I stayed in condo #233. It was a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom + a third room with a fold down bed. We had a gorgeous ocean view. The condo came equipped with EVERYTHING you could possibly think of. Even had a boogie board & snorkel gear so you didn't need to rent anything. 1900sq feet of total luxury. Unlike some... More

We selected the Kaanapali Alii for the first family vacation with our five month old son, and I couldn't be happier. We had a ocean view 2 bedroom condo (building 1, 11th floor, room 3) that was amazing. To begin with - it was huge and updated, with a great, comfortable living space, nice dining room (with ocean view), decent... More

This is our fifth trip to Maui, first time staying in a condo. The view on the tenth floor is Absolutley beautiful and I believe that's what you pay for. We love the amenities of a hotel stay, this is not that. This is basic family living accommodations. No music at the pool, no cocktail waitress, basic lunch service, rules... More

Traveled here in a group of 10. We rented 3 condos here, 1 one bedroom and 2 two bedroom units. All three units were nicely decorated, very spacious and very clean. There was a complication when we checked in, but the staff was very accomodating and made things work out for us. Also, upon checkout, the staff accomodated us by... More

There is no question, a great place to stay. Some areas for improvement would be handling room preference requests made at the time of your reservation, your condo unit is pretty much assigned to you prior to arrival and if your assigned condo does not meet with your original requests, it is not addressed at check in, but deferred by...

Stayed a week at the Ali'i during our summer vacation. We absolutely loved the property - right on the beach with excellent views - ours was of the beach on the north side of the property. Staff at the hotel were excellent, always helpful when needed. Having the 2 BR condo with kitchen, washer, and dryer was helpful for a... More

This was our second time back to this property. We love it's location as it's near Black Rock which is a nice snorkeling spot, wonderful restaurants and good shopping. The condo was well maintained. Ours had granite countertops, stainless steal appliances, and a separate bedroom for the kids with two beds and their own bath. It also had a washer/dryer... More

We spent a week in Maui and stayed at Kaanapali Alii. I was a little concerned based on some of the reviews I read but we had a GREAT time and would definitely stay here again. We stayed on the 2nd floor in a 2 bedroom condo and had a great view. It was fully furnished and provided all the... More
