We just returned from a week at the Kaanapali Alii. I booked it after reading all the positive reviews at Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. I booked through Royal Hawaii Condos, asking for a premier ocean view. Although originally told all were booked and only standard ocean view was available, we were pleasantly suprised to be upgraded to a premier... More

The Ali'i was gorgeous. We stayed in a 1 bedroom which had a bonus room with a double bed which was perfect for my daughters. The one bedroom was 1500 sq feet and was equipped with every comfort of home. The location was ideal, right on the beach and walking distance to shops. There are gas bbq's next to the... More

The Kaanapali Alii is a great place to stay with family. We stayed in unit 256, a "mountain view" room. This was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. About 1700 square feet. The master bedroom had a king size bed. The second bedroom had two double beds. The sofa in the living room was also a sleeper. The unit had... More

My wife and I along with our two girls, ages 3 & 5, and my mother in law just returned from eight days here. We had a nice two bedroom lanai ocean view with a den which provided lots of room and sleeping accomodations for all of us. The room was on the tenth floor and had fabulous ocean and... More

Three generations of women from my family (my mother, sister, niece and I) stayed at the Alii February 13 - 18, 2007 and we could not have been more pleased. Our unit, 171, was stylish and comfortable, with top quality furnishings. We had a view from the lanai of the ocean and Moloka'i (over the Westin pool area) to the... More

The location at the Ali'i is excellent; you can stroll the promenade and see all of the beach goers, walk to great shopping and dining, and even run the trail in the morning, provided you are used to running and walking in crowds. This side of Maui is quite crowded, and the traffic is a veritable nightmare at most times... More

A large condo, in the perfect location, on a perfect beach? Can't do much better than the Alii. We have stayed here for the past 4 years, after finding it planning a last minute holiday trip, and we won't consider staying anywhere else. For those who say they desperately need to redo the pool area, please book elsewhere. This property... More

We stayed here from 12/7 to 12/13. Booked a premier oceanfront condo [unit 125] through Classic Vacations . This place is wonderful. Beautiful landscaping, and a wonderous view from our lanai. The condo was fully updated with more room than we needed. This section of beach was beautiful, with very little crowding and more than enough chairs for the pool... More
