Ka'anapali is a great place to go and just relax so our family has been several times. However this is the first time we have stayed at the Alii and we will never stay somewhere else again. We actually ended up here by accident. We were supposed to stay at the Whalers but when we checked in, they did not have the type of unit we had reserved. So our travel agent was able to move us to the Alii instead and boy were we lucky. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath with a Den was on the 11th floor with a full view of the ocean. Amazingly well appointed, gorgeous kitchen, great deck and the den had a queen sized Murphy bed so we all ended up with our own private space (den could be completely closed off). The pools and common areas are perfect, great beach in front of the property (surfed, boarded and snorkeled numerous days), and we cooked most meals in using the high end grills out by the pool. Actually cooking at the grills was one of the highlights of the trip as it's almost like a cocktail hour by the pool - meeting other folks staying there and share fun stories. Overall we could not have enjoyed the property more and look forward to our next trip soon!

Room Tip: We were in tower 3, 11th floor, south side - great views of the ocean and mountains unobstructed and the building is the closest to the pool area and grills. Plus if there are tradewinds, they usually come from the other side so no "whining wind noise" at night!

If you want the option of having a place where you can feel like you are at home (in paradise!) then try this hotel. You can get daily maid service (for an extra fee) or take care of things yourself. The rooms are spacious enough that you could truly live here. We had a one bedroom unit that also had a den with a queen bed in it and two bathrooms plus dining area, full kitchen, living room and washer/dryer. Everything that would make our two week stay comfortable. They have a great bar b que area with eating area overlooking the beach for fantastic sunsets!
The lanais are a great size with tables and usually six chairs.
While there is no restaurant on site, there are many that are very close.

Room Tip: I'd the ocean view is important to you, then don't settle for a partial ocean view category. The mountain view scenery is beautiful and has more privacy.

We've had the pleasure of staying at this lovely condo on two occasions. Our first time, a few years ago, we enjoyed a great view and an average room. On our most recent visit, the view was less spectacular but the layout of the unit and the amenities were outstanding! The location is perfect - right on Kaanapali beach with quick access to shops, restaurants, and other resorts. This part of the beach is a little less crowded, so didn't feel like we were overwhelmed with people. We enjoy having the space to make ourselves at home. With 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a washer/dryer, our "home" was spacious, well-appointed, and clean! The reviews say it's expensive but worth it - TOTALLY agree!

This hotel is in an excellent location with shopping and beach activities within walking distance. We rented a two bedroom which included a fully stocked kitchen. We stayed on the ground level, which was very convenient for getting to the pool area from our patio. However be warned, I fell asleep with my window open (to enjoy the sound of the ocean and the breeze) and hotel security called me late at night to tell me I needed to close my window. I appreciate their concern for safety and security, but the bottom floor is not the place to be if you like to sleep with a window open!!
Other reviews are correct about the pool being a little small. It's a pretty pool area, but it pales compared to the resorts nearby (of course, the Alii dies not rip you off by charging additional resort fees like the nearby resorts). I would stay here again. And yes... Babies are allowed in the jacuzzi. Lighten up! Swim diapers are required!

This was a great place to stay as per previous reviews it was centrally located and very friendly helpful staff. The unit we stayed at were very close to the beach front and an easy stroll to the shops at the whalers village for nice shops as well as restaurants or bars. Or alternatively stroll to the front of the Whalers village to catch the bus in to Lahaina for more shops and restaurants. It is also a short taxi ride to Lahaina.
Nice pool and BBQ area as well as very nicely kept gardens. Highly recommend the Kaanapali Alii

Room Tip: Apartments 115 or 116. Both are in building one and are close to the beach and the shops & restaurants of Whalers village which are just a short walk down the boardwalk. Only downside is you have no privacy on your deck as you are ground floor at the front and noise is an issue if there is a lot of revellers walking the boardwalk at night but overall this isn't much of an issue..
