The setting is extremely beautiful, and the beach and water (calm surf) spectacular. The room could have been updated but still it was comfortable. Sitting out on the lanai was peaceful with a great view of the water. I could see that access to a kitchen is desirable but I did not use it as was traveling solo . Staff... More

My first time to Maui and I stayed here July 13, 2013 - July 18, 2013. I just read some of the recent reviews, including a very negative review due to outdated decor in room. Fortunately, I stayed in a recently renovated room which was lovely. I don't think I would have found Napili Kai worth the money had we... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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 There were two things wrong with this place. 1) The rooms are SEVERELY OUTDATED.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... More

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 The only thing I would say we did not care for were the outdated rooms.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... More

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... More

My husband & I have visited Maui many times, we always stay on Kaanapali Beach in one of the big hotels. This time our incredible travel agent, from Willamette International Travel, suggested we would love to stay at Napili Kai Beach Resort. She was right!! It was fantastic. Lovely location, on Napili Bay, we could walk out to a grassy... More
