“Tranquil,park like setting”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We stayed at Napili Kai for 10 days. Tranquil Park-like grounds, beautifully maintained and manicured. Beautiful beach, good snorkelling area. Resort also has a swimming pool centrally located amongst the low rise buildings. Rooms in some of buildings are a little dated but very clean. Service staff, front desk, housekeeping etc were all very friendly and helpful. We felt very comfortable at this resort. It is a great place for families or adults. It was peaceful and quiet with no noisy late night partying that friends experienced at their hotel in Kaanapali

Room Tip: Not all rooms have views of the ocean but all do overlook central lawn, gardens and swimming pool

We felt so comfortable at the Napili Kai. The beaches around this area are great. I liked the furniture in our room and the japanese style sliding window blinds. The kitchen was well equipped so we cooked our meals. The restaurant isn't my kind of food.

We spent 3 days here before heading across to the Big Island. Napili Kai is a great family resort, safe and just wonderful for the kids. The beach is beautiful, and the snorkeling pretty good. Food on site was mediocre, however, and we quickly learned to eat off site. Our room was clean and quiet, though needed updating and was rather dark. The resort as a whole was built 40-50 years and has a rather dated feel.

I stayed here over Thanksgiving with 21 of my fiances family members. It was beautiful and amazing. The full kitchens, three pools, large hot tub, amazing, snorkeling and nearby shopping make this an amazing place to stay. The staff was so nice, I had a pillow that did not work for my neck the front desk sent me two different types of pillows to try out. All of the kitchen pots and pans were new, clean and very convenient. They have a great set of activities for guests including 18 holes of putting tournament, mai tai hour, lei making, and many other adult and kid friendly activities. Housekeeping is so friendly and keeps your room so clean it feels like you just checked in. The only bad part other than leaving this amazing place was that one of the wait staff at the Sea House restaurant was not really on his game and made one of our dining experiences not enjoyable . The four other times we ate there were amazing so we would definitely recommend it! I hope to be back soon!

Room Tip: Get a room on Puna Point!

We first came to this beautiful resort 6 years ago so when the opportunity arose to come back to Maui we just had to stay here again.
We had 11 nights in a high rise in Waikiki first so this was such a great balance.
It is so wonderful to just walk out of your room and within minutes you are in the ocean. The water is so warm and wonderful for swimming, snorkelling and paddle boarding.
It was fairly busy due to being Thanksgiving weekend but if the beach was crowded it was just as nice sitting on the lawn.
The rooms have everything you need and we made use of the cooking facilities and ate simply in our room most nights.The Sea House restaurant was lovely and the staff excellent. It was lovely to look out to the water as we ate.
The best part for me was sitting on the balcony and watching the glorious sunset every night.
There are lots of activities if you wish to join in including the putting green.
If you play golf it is just a few minutes walk to The Bay Golf Course which is literally across the road.
All the staff were brilliant.
Would never stay anywhere ease in Maui

Room Tip: The rooms in the Honolua wing are fantastic and very close to the beach

We stayed here for our Wedding Anniversary, what a special place. Small and friendly but it had everything you could wish for, and more.The room was beautiful: comfy beds and pillows, great linen. Snorkelling amazing and all the snorkel gear was complimentary, as were the coolers etc, Great restaurants,we dined at Merrimans on our special night, that was superb. Nothing more to add.Sheer heaven. They had thought of everything. I want to go again !

When I die, I hope to end up at Napili Kai. It's one of the few low-rise resorts on Maui, nestled in a beautiful, sheltered bay that's perfect for stand-up paddling and snorkeling. (We snorkeled with sea turtles and saw plenty of tropical fish right on our beach.)

Our oceanfront room was exquisite: clean, light and airy with a full kitchen and a private lanai overlooking the lava rock beach. The perfect place to watch the sunset each night! We slept with the door open so we could hear the surf all night. And our bathroom made me want to remodel ours when we got home.

There are no additional resort fees at Napili Kai: no up charges for beach towels or beach chairs or to attend the daily cultural demonstrations. On Wednesday nights, all guests are invited to a free mai tai party, and the weekly children's hula show and the slack-key guitar concert are not to be missed.

When my husband and I visited Ka'anapali Beach and saw high-rise hotel after hotel with hundreds of people packing the beach, we fled back to the serenity of Napili Kai. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Spring for a corner, ocean-front studio if you can afford it. Worth the price!
