Our second time staying at Kaanapali Alii did not disapoint!!! Perfect accommodations if you are traveling with a larger group and looking for a low-key vibe right on the beach. We had a 3 bed/2 bath for the 7 of us. It was super spacious and had a great view. Having the full size kitchen was awesome for cooking in...

a few months ago, my partner and I decided to plan the first 2 week holiday in many years and to return to one of our favorite Islands, Maui! As we had very good experiences in the past with Maui Beachfront Rentals they were our first call after making the decision to go to the island. In the past we...

We have stayed at many of the hotels along the Kaanapali Beach; Whaler, Marriott, Aston Kaanapali Shores, but we always came back to the Kaanapali Alii. There are many reasons, but the top three are: 1) Full sized condos; large, comfortable living space, well equipped kitchens, big comfortable bedrooms . They even have BBQ's on site, and an herb garden....

This is a condo complex so obviously your experience depends on the specific unit. The property itself is in an absolutely perfect location. It sits on the beach. You step off the property directly onto the beach. The grounds are beautiful. With two pools and hot tubs there is plenty of space to spread out. The view from our particular...

We were staying in a 2-bedroom condo with ocean view. Yes, the view was gorgeous! Spacious rooms, huge balcony (lanai), well equipped kitchen, daily cleaning service, parking -- there is everything you need for excellent vacation with your family. Sandy beach is just few steps from the building. Very close to shops and restaurants.

This title is the same one that I used in my 2012 review of the Alii, and it stands. However, they've upped their game a bit, so I now give them Five Stars. Once again we did this as a Costco package, the best way to get decent rates. The room was all set for us when we arrived. Parking...

We stayed here at the Alii in Unit 153, a two bedroom + Den unit. This put us in building one, closest to the ocean walkway, which gave us a fantastic view from the fifth floor. We had an ocean view from the dining room, living room, and from both bedrooms. The Westin is right next door, and our unit...

As an Aussie, this place was expensive as a place to stay. As a play to stay in Mauii, it was not and it was worth it. I would stay here many times again with my family. First thing to know is that a 1 bedroom apartment here had a full kitchen, lounge, dining, and a den - which really...

We were pleasantly surprised by the value of such a large condo right on the Ka'anapali Beach. We had two master bedrooms, full size kitchen, living room, dining room, and there was plenty of room to sprawl out. Views were amazing. There are two pools, one for adults and one that allows keikis, and a jacuzzi. There is no bar,...

Property is in a very good location on Kaanapali Beach, with one of the best beachfronts in this area. Close to Whaler's Village and some good restaurants. Pool was nice and grounds well maintained. The beds and bedding would get only 2*. Old and not very comfortable. TV in bedroom was old 90's model which only received limited cable with...
