Hardly noticed among the "super-resorts" on Maui is a charming, clean, affordable, and (most importantly to me) Hawaiian hotel. The Kā'anapali Beach Hotel has opted not to add the huge swimming pool with water slides, or faux waterfalls with a swim-up bar, which make the other resorts sort of blend together. Instead, you will find a refreshing whale-shaped pool in the middle of a huge grassy courtyard scattered with much needed shade trees and Hawaiian artifacts. The beach front is about the best on Maui, just a few steps from your room.
The real treasure of the hotel is its employees! Just sit in the lobby for a 20 minutes and you will feel like part of the family! I live just an hour drive from this hotel, but have made it a family tradition to spend a weekend there every November for the past 20 years. I will return next week, and of course indulge myself at the famous Sunday morning brunch!
