Westin Kaanapalli resort Villas

We are planning to go to Westin Kaanapalli resort Villas. I read that it costs $100/day to rent the beach chairs. Is that correct? Is that resort worth going? I will be going with 6 and 8 yr old kids. I have read a lot of negative reviews about it.

Aloha Anjali,

I'm not sure what the cost for chair rental is currently, but I definitely enjoyed my stay there with my wife and 6 year old. It's quite unique - condo style accommodations, but full service hotel. The main pool is great and the kids will love the pool water slide. We bought our food at safeway in Lahaina and used the Barbeques on site

The grounds and beach area are very nice. It is a higher end property so parking, rentals, restaurant and pool bar, etc will be on the expensive side.

It is also a time share property, but we never got approached or found anything annoying.

I think you are confusing private beach cabanas with beach chairs.

We own at the Villas and love it..2 weeks every year.

The pool cabanas *may* be $100 but the beach chairs are not, if I remember correctly they are about $20...sorry we just lay our towels on the sand and enjoy the water.

I would love to see these negative reviews...I read every single one. 44 negative reviews against 800 or more excellent ones is not bad odds!

Go and enjoy!

Do you want a beach chair or a lounge chair? You can buy a cheap beach chair for $20 and just leave it. You can also rent good chairs at Snorkel Bob's. Don't remember the price. They frequently throw in chairs if you do an activity thru them. Remember, the pool and adequate lounge chairs are only feet from the beach. If I chose not to go to the WKORV, it wouldn't be becausew of the beach chairs.

We are at the end of a two week stay here, our second vacation at the WKORV. We always purchase inexpensive beach chairs when we arrive & then give them to someone on the beach when we leave. This is a very nice resort, the snorkeling out front is fabulous. We have used the grills which are kept in tip-top condition. The staff is friendly and helpful. Quite simply put, this is paradise on earth!

I'm currently staying at the Westin Villas. When I went to the activities desk to ask about scuba, I was mistakenly quoted the price for beach chairs. He said $10/day each chair and $5 umbrella. Since activities desk shut at 5pm and sunset at 7pm, no relaxing on beach with this bunch. We decided, after reading advice on TA forums, to rent two chairs for $25/week from Snorkel Bobs. They no longer rent umbrellas because they got trashed. Chairs are Tommy Bahama with insulated pouch.
