“Gorgeous Rooms!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

My wife and I own a week time share at this resort. The resort is a bit older but has been undergoing numerous renovations, including many of the rooms. When we stayed here we had a one bedroom suite on the top floor with ocean views. It was absolutely gorgeous and could easily have been a honeymoon suite. The suite has a mini kitchenette, large dining table, several tvs, stereo with IPod dock, couches, chairs, a huge balcony, and a massive bathroom.

The pool is gorgeous and surprisingly large. There are plenty of lounge chairs. There is a poolside bar that is very inviting. Great food and even better drinks. Happy hour every day from 3 to 6 pm, with certain deals on food as well. Would have preferred more of a beach but you can't have everything.

Free parking is a huge perk! Relatively easy commute to see some incredible sights on the island. If you can get this as a timeshare week, you can get a lot of bang for your buck!

Room Tip: Ask for top floor and ocean view.

We traded in here for a week through RCI and were not in the least bit disappointed. This used to be an Embassy Suites, but has been converted to condo units by Diamond International Resorts. We were given a one bedroom suite on the top floor (12) with ocean and territorial view. The living area was ample and well furnished, with a kitchenette, large dining table, large flat screen, stereo with IPOD dock, couch and two chairs, and outside balcony in front of living and bedroom areas. The bedroom was large with flat screen, plenty of closet and drawers for storage. Bathroom was large with separate shower and tub and two sinks. The kitchen was well stocked and had a full size refer, microwave and dishwasher. There is no oven or stove-top, but they provide you with a large electric skillet for cooking. We didn't cook much because they have a pretty good restaurant with decent prices. They also have a buffet breakfast every morning for $16, but will discount to about $13 if you purchase three days worth. It's a pretty good buffet, with omelet bar, and well worth the price. The bar has happy hour half-price drinks every day from 3-6, with certain food items at half-price as well. So you can get your drinks and dinner before 6 for a very reasonable price. Besides, after a long day at their pool and beach you will probably be tired. We snorkeled right off the hotel's beach and saw plenty of fish. My wife was really excited when she came within a few feet of a refrigerator sized turtle one afternoon. When the surf was up there were people in front of the hotel surfing as well. The pool area is quite large and the pool area is always clean. The chaise lounges are nicely cushioned and comfortable. What else do you need? Oh by the way - when you register for your room they ask you if you want to participate in their time share promos. If you say NO, they will not approach you at all during your stay! My wife and I were here with our daughter and husband, and were all very pleased with our stay.

We were here for my wife's birthday and our anniversary. We had requested a room with a view. On check-in were assigned a noisy room above the service entrance and AC units. Front desk had no trace of requests three separate ones were done and confirmed. Very frustrating dealing with front desk. Finally got moved mid way through the week even though other units were available.

Resort location and pools were great but would not recommend because of our experience.

Room Tip: Higher units have better views. Confirm ocean view before hand otherwise you will be assigned back e...

The resort is older and is affectionately called the pink palace for a reason. The ocean views are wonderful and if you didn't get an ocean view then the mtn views are almost just as nice. The staff is great and accommodated our requests. The breakfast buffet was ok nothing elaborate. I will stay here again!

We spent a week at Kaanapali Beach Club in October. We were there courtesy of an RCI Vacation Exchange. We have stayed at many resorts in Hawaii and throughout the world. We definitely agree that this resort is superior in almost every possible way.
We loved the room, the service , the oceanfront location, the availability of poolside chaises at all times , and the general atmosphere throughout the resort.
Staff were most courteous , helpful , and professional. On site restaurant was excellent with a modestly priced menu. Pizza was excellent.
We enjoyed sunsets in the evening and the lamp lighting ceremony. Our daughter enjoyed excellent snorkelling at resort oceanfront.
An excellent resort for R & R and fun. It was also most helpful to have a good local supermarket within walking distance from the resort.
I accidently left a small personal item in our room as we left. I contacted Housekeeping several days after our departure and was delighted and amazed to discover that the item had been found and placed in safekeeping for me. The item was later mailed to my home address in Canada--now, that was most impressive !
Thank you to all the staff and Resort Management for the privilege of enjoying a vacation at Kaanapali Beach Club.

This resort is beautiful!! The pool is huge and there were always comfortable lounge chairs available. It's located on the ocean with a nice sandy beach, although it is rocky as you wade in. This is on the north end of Ka'anapali, so you can't really walk to many places. In fact, it doesn't have the boardwalk in front of it. Most of the people staying here are members of various timeshares, although we were told they do put their rooms on hotel.com. Be advised, if you are doing an RCI exchange, you will not be given an oceanfront room. Those are reserved for Diamond Club owners. We booked 2 years in advance for our anniversary & begged for a partial ocean view, so we were able to see a side view of the ocean from our suite and we could see Black Rock where the Sheraton is located. The kitchen facilities in these condos are limited, no stove top or oven, just a microwave, refrigerator and electric skillet. The restaurant & bar were very good here. The pizzas are great & very reasonably priced. I also had fish tacos 1 night & had 3, loaded with fish for $15. The bar has a daily Happy Hour from 3-6 that had the best prices on drinks and you can see the pool and the ocean from their outdoor bar. It was 1 of the best in Ka'anapali.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

We have stayed at the Kanapali Beach Club on two occasions and will continue to do so. This resort offers a great location, great snorkeling and close to shopping and Lahiana but far enough away from large crowds. The customer service is excellent and the accomodations are roomy and clean fully equipped with refridgerator, coffee maker, dishes, microwave, dining area - we especially love the convenience of the on site bar, restaurant and pool area with beutiful gardens and koi ponds. We love the convenience of walkin right on to the beach from the pool/bar area for great sunsets. After our second visit we decided purchase a timeshare unit here so that we can continue to return often enjoying the relaxation and tranquility of Maui and all this resort has to offer.

Room Tip: We especially enjoy the garden-pool-ocean views - not real fond of the mountain view.
