“Fabulous Resort on Ka'anapali Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We just finished a 10 day stay at this resort. Everything from the check-in to check-out was fantastic. We asked for and were given an oceanview room in building #4. Fabulous location if you want to be close to the action(pool/ocean). I can't say enough about the high level of service throughout this property. Claudia and Claudia (weird coincidence) were both so incredibly helpful and friendly at the poolside every day taking care of our every wish. They deserve a raise. Having been to Maui several times over the years, I can tell you it would be hard to top this location and high level of friendly service we encountered at the Sheraton Maui.
P.S. - Save your money on any snorkeling trip to molokini/turtle town as the variety and number of fish is awesome including the 2 giant sea turtles right out front at Black Rock.

If you love walking/jogging, this area is excellent for walking as there is a boardwalk along ka'anapali beach and you are walking distance to Whaler's Village, another awesome place to shop and eat.

The weather was awesome and thank goodness for those trade winds, which you can't live without.

Room Tip: There are 6 buildings. For being close to the pool and beach, ask for building 3 or 4. Others are...

My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary October 22-29th at the Maui Sheraton. I feel like I am hard to please when it comes to hotel accomidations. I was not at all disappointed in this fabulously beautiful hotel. The staff was great and upgraded us to a suite upon arrival :) This hotel looks exactly like the photos! It is spotless and absolutely the most relaxing resort on Kannapali. I would most definetly stay here time and time again. This is a very relaxing resort, peaceful and quite. If you are looking for a little bit more entertainment I would recommend the Westin only because all of the bars and lounges close by 10 pm at the Sheraton. Really that's the only downside to this hotel. The Sheraton Maui was the perfect hotel to spend our anniversary and we are already booking our trip back next year!!!

Our experience at the Sheraton Maui was wonderful. The easy check-in and a room upgrade were fabulous. As a Starwood member, we are allowed to ask for a room upgrade and if available, we can have it. We received an incredible ocean front room in building 4 that was close to the pool and the beach.
Snorkeling at black rock is really amazing as well. Our bellman Trevor was full of great advice and recommendations for restaurants. My only tiny complaint is the lighting in the bathroom is really low and I only wish they would make it brighter. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with the service and the location.

I've been to Maui many times. This is my fifth stay at the Sheraton. I've previously stayed at the Westin, Fairmont, Grand Wailea, Kaanapalii Beach Hotel, Hotel Hana and the Napili Kai. The Sheraton is my favorite. The location at Black Rock is probably one of the best spots on the whole island. The staff is friendly and helpful. Their breakfast buffet is not the best on Maui, but it has plenty of variety for everyone. The grounds are very peaceful and well maintained. The rooms could use some refreshing and sprucing up. There was some mold in our shower/bath, and I called housekeeping to clean it up. They cleaned some of it, but still left some behind. We have an ocean front room with beautiful views of Lanai and Molokai. It is in easy walking distance of the stores and restaurants at Whaler's Village. It has a well equipped gym. All in all, it is a good hotel.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, ask for an ocean front room.

Beautiful Property...best on Kaanapali. Pool is undersized and short on usual features seen at major resorts in this area. Amenities seem geared more for the older set. Not many kids seen.
Rooms have been renovated though beds seem somewhat warm and are in need of upgrading to expected Sheraton advertising standards.
Staff is overall very nice and friendly. They are quick to meet every need quickly. We were upgraded to a lovely room for our stay. Very relaxing with a beautiful view. EVELYN at the front desk is one of a kind when it comes to pleasing guests and meeting (exceeding) expectations. I have never met anyone in her position that does her job better. She is a gem!!!
Claudia, at the pool, is another gem for pleasing guests.
The fitness center is adequate. The restaurants are good.Free shuttle service to Lahaina is another plus.Lahaina parking is a hassle.
Much better property and service than it's sister property The Westin. Would recommend and will re-visit if possible. Had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: Request Evelyn. Bldg 4,5,6 are best for views.Some sections of building 2 are good as well. Request...

We spent 2 nights here on our anniversary visit to Maui last month. First, I will say that this hotel is on a great beach. That's about it. We checked in optimistic, even when we got the "no King Beds available", as we had requested. But...for an extra fee, they can find one. I had read about that happening on here and politely said no thank you. The nice guy that helped us with our bags who was very friendly, told us about the area, if we needed him let us know etc. was pretty much the only friendly employee we came in contact with at this resort. Front desk staff, valet, even the guy who took care of the towels, wasn't friendly and almost rude. After checking in we got a message saying there was a welcome gathering in the lobby and a gift was waiting on us. I sent my husband while I took a shower and when he came back he was a bit irritated. When he went the lady from spg immediately wanted to know where his wife was. He told her I was in the shower and I had sent him to see what our gift was and that irritated her. She was rude, unprofessional and wasted his time. She gave him a tote and he left. As I said at the beginning, the beach is very nice. Chair and umbrella rentals aren't included, I don't remember the fee. As far as the room goes, it was fine. It hadn't been updated but was ok to sleep in. There are alot better options in the area. We checked into a different hotel in Wailea after our stay at the Sheraton and it was wonderful in every way.

This was our 2nd time in Maui and we loved the hotel. We had previously stayed at the Hyatt at the other end of the beach and found the Sheraton quieter and far more relaxing. We were staying with 2 other couples who all had a great time despite a long walk between our rooms. The staff overall were friendly and helpful, the pool very nice and also kept clean and never overcrowded. It is great to be able to walk out onto a beautiful and uncrowded beach.
Shops and restaurants/bars at Whalers Village are within an easy walk also.
Our rooms had very nice ocean views and we would recommend that you ask for higher floor rooms (tsunami alert while we were there)
A great holiday!

Room Tip: High ocean view or ocean front are best
