Stayed here the first time 30 years ago and not much has changed. Best location in Kaanapali with close proximity to shopping and snorkelling, with fabulous views of Lanai and Molokai.
Very laid back area, if you wore shoes, you were overdressed.
There is a welcome briefing that includes a buffet breakfast that is worth going to and free. We expected a time share pitch and it was anything but, although there is an emphasis to book tours, but still interesting.
We spent most late afternoons and early evening at Leilani's 100 yards down the beach for $4 mai tais and $4 sandwiches, listening to a band and on one occasion watching, from out table, the whales breach.
While the restaurant looked interesting and competitively priced, we never ate here for dinner. Breakfast buffet was about $16, and the Sunday champagne brunch was more than 2X this price.
I would return to this property.
