This is a condo complex with full size kitchens. I stayed in a two bedroom with pull out couch, unit 112. This unit was found on VRBO.com and worked directly with the owner. The unit is updated and was very comfortable. The only recommendation I would have for the unit owner would be to improve the patio lighting and replace... More

We stayed 10 nights in an ocean front condo at the Ka'anapali Ali'i. We spent most of our time on the lanai as we had a magnificent view and could watch the whales as well as enjoy the beautiful Pacific. Ka'anapali Beach is right out the door as well al the beach walk which takes you to a variety of... More

We stayed at the Kaanapali Alii for 11 days. The two bedroom condo was beautiful, comfortable and roomy. Excellent view of the ocean. We used the BBQ facilities nearly every night. The staff was warm, friendly and helpful. We absolutely loved it and would not hesitate to stay there again.

I want to start by saying we had great service and all the staff here are very helpful and friendly. We were on the 7th floor, just 2 minutes from the beach or pool. Every morning we had breakfast outside on the beautiful veranda. There's lots of stores and restaurants within a 5 minute walk or a quick drive to... More

We stayed over two weeks at this family-oriented, luxury style resort. From the moment we arrived, the staff was attentive, the service was excellent, and the location was outstanding! Whether your preference was to hang out at the larger family pool or adult only smaller upper pool, the water front complex will not disappoint. A large sandy beach is right... More

We loved our week at Kaanapali Alii, which was part of a longer holiday in Hawaii. The apartment was gorgeous and the size of a house, with great views of the beach from most rooms and from the generous balcony. It was a one bedroom beach view apartment but there was a study made up as a second bedroom with... More

My first visit to Hawaii. We had nothing but gracious service from everyone we encountered here. Our room was an ocienview room, but the view from the balcony and from the Master bedroom was incredible. The concierge arranged all out excursions and helped us with other transportation needs. Whaler's Village was very close for shopping and eating. Food there was... More

Very well equipped and comfortable rooms, well laid out and good views from all? rooms. The room we were in was recently renovated and better than we expected for a beach unit. Right on the beach front near a small surf break suitable for kids learning to surf. About a 1km walk to black rock snorkelling area up the beach... More

We booked through booking.com and got a GREAT deal with airfare and car rental. When we arrived, the hotel upgraded us without being asked to a huge 2 br, 2 ba. It's basically a condo with hotel amenities. If you're looking for big-hotel ambiance this ain't it, but it is so ideal for families. Lots of room, very clean, nice... More
