“Amazing Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

When we checked in, the staff was so friendly and helpful. The resort has an amazing view! It feels very "Hawaiian" -the decor, beautiful flowers, and the way it sits along with the surroundings (not a huge high rise). We loved being so close to the beach and ocean. I loved that they even had solar panels! They had great entertainment from local places. The resort is family friendly as well as romantic if you're there with your special loved one. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Pick one with air conditioning.

My wife and I stayed at this amazing resort from 03th to 07th of July 2013 on our first visit to Hawaii. This is just a paradise with one of the best location of any hotel we have visited. Take a look at my attached photos and you will understand what I am talking about!!

We lived at one of the oldest buildings (room 104). When we opened the door for the first time we thought that the room needed some improvement – but after some time we think that it was just charming!

The great service on this resort makes you feel comfortable. The reception staffs are very friendly and very helpful and there is nothing to complain about the cleaning!

There is also an excellent restaurant on the property (the Sea House restaurant). We enjoy the happy hour from 2pm-5pm :-)

- and yes – it was hard to leave!!! I am writing this review in Honolulu a week later and we are still missing this place. We have to save money to come back again next year all the way from Norway :-)

Best Regards

Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.

We stayed in an oceanfront studio at Napili Kai that we booked through Donna Bender of MauiCalls. It was absolutely fabulous! I still tell my husband that the oceanfront café/bar has the most spectacular view I've ever seen, and we travel a great deal, nationally and internationally. We can never thank Donna enough for recommending Napili Kai to us, and encouraging us to book the oceanfront studio. Donna is the best!

Room Tip: The oceanfront studio was worth every penny!

We recently made a full loop around Maui. We ended our vacation here and my oh my what a disaster. There were two things wrong with this place.

1) The rooms are SEVERELY OUTDATED. Maybe they are in the process of replacing the 70's furniture and Deco but our room wasn't done yet and it was DEPRESSING!!!

2) The second problem is that we felt that each night we were there we were missing the opportunity of a lifetime to stay on the east side of the island where the scenery is beautiful and things grow! Restaurants are actually good AND cheap.

Don't waste your money.

The best things about this resort are the gorgeous lagoon, the beautiful landscaping and the amazing sunset views. The only thing I would say we did not care for were the outdated rooms. Although clean, our room was in serious need of a make-over. This was a minor thing compared to the great snorkeling right off the lagoon -- we saw sea turtles! And exploring the rocky shore at low tide was a treat. The on-site restaurant was very good and the beautiful flowers everywhere make this resort something special.

This was our first time on Maui, we stayed here from June 13 to June 20. It exceeded all of our expectations, in every area! We had the ocean front studio in Puna II, which was literally steps from the water. Our room was fully upgraded and immaculate - fully stocked kitchen, ice maker, coffee maker, blender, toaster, dishwasher, so much other stuff we didn't even use! Housekeeping was exceptional, all the staff were friendly and helpful. The bathroom was small but adequate, bed was comfy, great furniture on the lanai, with nana-type doors that open all the way across. A little beach path leads to the Sea House restaurant and the beach. We ate at Sea House a few times, for lunch, pupus, and breakfast - highly recommend it. The beach is quite popular but there was always space. We saw lots of fish snorkeling there, and a turtle even swam with us twice! The resort provides large beach towels and chairs for the beach (not the lounger type, but still great). You can also check out coolers for the length of your stay. They have free snorkel equipment which we didn't use. Kapalua beach is a 3 minute walk away (they have a stand there that rents chairs, umbrellas, paddle boards, etc etc). Other things close by: Honolua Bay, Merriman's restaurant, the Kapalua coastal trail, and Kaanapali & Lahaina were short drive away. We will definitely be staying here again!

Was suppose to arrive on May 28 ,and leave on June 4. Due to travel difficulties did not arrive until May 30. Not only did management allow us to stay until June 6, at no additional cost , they
upgraded our room from ocean view to ocean front , again at no additional cost. Our travel difficulties deserved something special. The condo was beautifully appointed and the view of the ocean was absolutely breath taking. Waking up to the beauty of the Pacific only two minutes away , and going to sleep with the sounds of the ocean gently massaging our ears was rexing and theraputic. The beach was clean , secluded and a five minute walk from our room. The hotel staff was the best we've ever experienced . We plan to return.

Room Tip: Go for the ocean front rooms.
