“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Travelling from Australia with our 2 children (20 &17) we were upgraded to 2 x 1 bed apartments overlooking the garden, which was excellent as we were there celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Nice size balcony and rooms, pleasant sounds of the waterfalls when you opened the balcony doors. The pools were great, the ocean warm, and the surf even came up for my 17 yo son to ride a few waves.
The resort itself was lovely, staff really nice and helpful, its great for a family group who dont have pretentious expectations. We travelled easily to nearby attractions (Lahaina, Kapalua, Whalers Village) using taxis and buses. We could easily book a taxi driver to pick us up when we needed.
Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here 3 years ago and had a blast, so we booked it again, great rates and location.
The spacious two bedrm. suite had a wonderful ocean view. Miles of resort and entertainment at your fingertips. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

They upgraded us to a 2 bedroom unit on arrival and it was a beautiful huge room which has everything you need including washing machine and dryer, dIshwasher, huge oven and fridge with ice/water dispenser. Very clean and its right on the beach with amazing view. Our room however had a giant palm tree blocking the view on the balcony. The pools were great and a nice restaurant. Beautiful gardens and the gym was well equipped and not too busy. We loved it here and would stay again. Wifi did not work in our room and they sent a technician out who left us a note saying there was no problem but it still didn't work. Had to go to foyer to use wifi there. Others who stayed had same issue in their rooms. Huge supermarket across the street. Town centre about 10 minutes drive away with loads of art galleries and nice restaurants.

My Wife and I were very pleased by everything at this Hotel. First of all, it is beautiful and calming. The 2 bedroom suite was HUGE and very clean. We were there for a week and enjoyed the view on the Balcony with wine and cheese and caught more than one beautiful sunset. We even made a couple nice dinners and cooked our early morning breakfasts before our daily adventures. The pools were awesome... there are 2 - One by the grassy area which is more "Adult" without many children and then there is the Big Pool... closer to the water and the beach is right there so you can swim in the ocean, then lay out by the pool and even enjoy the jacuzzi. The Cabana we had was nice poolside and a bit of shade from time to time was a good thing. The staff was exceedingly helpful and professional. This is truly a 5. Stay here and enjoy yourselves as much as we did!

Room Tip: Get a 2 bedroom with a view. Top 2 Floors are best.

Maui is the garden isle, when you look across the West Maui Mountains you'll see why. When staying at the Kaanapali Shores try to get an ocean view if possible, especially from December to April when the whales are around. There's nothing like pulling back the shades in the a.m. to watch whales traveling up and down the coast some so close you can almost touch them. It's a nice place to stay, you can save alot of $$$ by cooking your own meals and doing laundry, but the rest of the time you should venture out or lounge around of of their two pools near the ocean. It's close enough to everything but far enough away from any congestion.

Stayed here with my family in August 2012. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant on several occasions, breakfast, lunch and appetizers in the bar. The view is great and the food was very good. We were upgraded to a unit that was very close to the ocean. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo was perfect for my family. Washer and drier in the unit is a nice touch.
The ocean right in front of the hotel is very rocky and hard to enjoy but just a few feet to the south the rocks dissipate and the ocean floor is sandy and smooth. We thought the property was attractive and well maintained and accurately represented in their promotional materials. They had everything we needed, from the restaurant/bar, to the shops, one of which sold anything we needed in the way of food or drinks for the room, to the coffee bar in the lobby. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor and the only noise we heard was the ocean.

Spent 10 days in September - wonderful weather, awesome resort with beautiful grounds, two nice pools, two hot tubs and a restaurant with an ocean view. Wonderful one bedroom condo fully appointed with a nice ocean view. Everything you could possibly need is in the condo or a phone call away. The staff will bring you whatever you may require and do it with Aloha spirit. The prior reviewer complained that everything is 45 minutes away - nonsense other than the airport being 45 mins from any resort, Lahaina Town is a five minute drive, there is ziplining 5 minutes away, snorkel and kayaking trips less than 10 mins away at DT Fleming park start point, cruises and fishing trips are also less than ten minutes away. Lahaina also has the Magic Show, shopping and Luaus - the reviewer is obviously too busy complaining to do any proper research and his comments should be ignored. The entire hotel was spotless and fresh. The two major resort areas are Wailea and Kaanapali both are about 45 mins from the Airport, Costco and Walmart....perhaps those are his ideal travel sites? Everything else, including fine dining is a very short drive....I had to laugh at the ridiculousness of his review.
