The hotel has lovely grounds , an ok pool but that's where it ends. Rooms are average, breakfast was disgusting. Found it amusing that there is an additional daily charge to use the room safe. Location is quite good but definitely need a car to get around, as is the norm for Maui. Would look else where if I return... More

We have stayed at the Kaanapali beach hotel twice in the past two years. Both times over the Thanksgiving holiday and we were upgraded for no extra charge to ocean view! The second time was for our 30th wedding anniversary.. What a special surprise to find champagne and flutes waiting for us as we arrived. Free buffet breakfast the first... More

The Ka'anapali Beach Hotel was a great option for my stay on Maui. A short walk from shopping and right on the beach, this property has lots of space where you can sit down and lounge the day away. The staff were always super friendly and while the rooms are a bit dated, there was lots of space and was... More

Check-in didn't start as smooth as I would have liked. When I booked our room I told the hotel that I had teen boy/girl twins. I was told that the room I was reserving had a king bed, and 2 twin beds. When I arrived I was informed that the room I was going to stay in for the week... More

We were very happy with the location and staff at this hotel. It is a 5 minute walk to the Whaler's Village. The staff is very friendly, and helpful at all times. They truly make you feel like family upon arrival. But the hotel really needs updating. Our room was very clean but outdated. I loved that they provide clean... More

We stayed at the Ka' anapali Beach Hotel for 11 days in July 2016. This was our 5th stay at the KBH over the last 10 years. My family of 4 really enjoy each visit to Maui and cannot wait until we return again. We have visited several of the other hotels on the island and I can say that... More

We originally booked to stay at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel for 5 nights during our first trip to Maui. We arrived mid-afternoon to check-in. First off, the hotel is located right off the main drag in Kaanapli beach and is in a great location. Upon walking into the lobby, I could tell this place was in serious need of renovations....

We stayed here for five nights. We had a rough start. Despite requesting no-smoking and following up by phone the day before arrival we were initially slated for a room on a floor where smoking was permitted on balconies. The front desk did fix this, putting us in a totally smoke free part of the hotel, but my initial impression... More

This hotel is absolutely the most traditional of all hotels in Maui. The staff is so friendly and accommodating! We were here on our honeymoon 10 years ago and came back to reminisce! The staff greeted us as old friends and added another "nut" to our leis that we were given from the hotel 10 years ago! I love the... More

Great spot along beach, beautiful grounds, great AC and water pressure, very friendly and helpful staff. Had an ocean view double with 2 people. I can overlook many things. I'm in Hawaii after all. The thin walls, dimmer switches for lights falling off, slow draining tub and toilet, tight rooms and bath, elevator doors roughed up. They really need to... More
