The location is terrific, close to all. The service was friendly, responsive, and very good. The property was in pristine shape, from the room’s interior to the grounds and tennis courts, one of the prettiest settings around, and quiet. We played tennis, watched whales, swam in the ocean and pool, sunned on the beach, BBQed and we did all this without leaving the grounds or driving anywhere. Shopping was a short walk down the beach. One of the best vacations, in a long time. This place has it ALL!!!

We stayed at the Kaanapali Alii in June for one week. We had a one bedroom premium lanaii, partial oceanview, condo for four adults. It was MORE than adequate space and was very beautifully appointed. It was more like a massive two bedroom condo as we had a bedroom in the "den" that even had its own ensuite bathroom with shower. We truly couldn't have asked for anything better! We made most of our meals in the kitchen or down at the BBQ area, which has a ton of seating available and a number of brand new BBQs, as well as plastic utensils, cups and paper plates.
We were traveling with families with young children and they also seemed very satisfied with their condos and the facilities in general.
I would highly recommend renting a car for all day trips and for grocery shopping. You could do without, but you'd better be prepared to spend a small fortune in the restaurants in Whaler's Village! There is no restaurant at Kaanapali Alii.
The pool set up was really nice and there was never a fight for lounge chairs. The lounge chair covers were very comfy and a great idea!
The beach chairs are horrible and make it impossible to lay in the sun on the beach. If you're into sunbathing, stick to the pool. There's also quite a bit of rock and coral close to shore in the area in front of the hotel and the water is really rough (at least when we were there). It was not really suitable for small children, although you could just walk down the beach a bit to a calmer spot. Great snorkelling and surfing though!! One warning - it gets pretty windy (on the beach and by the pool). We stayed in Wailea as well and it was much less windy there.
All in all, a great hotel in a great location!

It was truly the best vacation we have taken yet. The hotel was clean, convenient, beautiful, located right on the beach. It was nice to utilize the barbeque gas grills by the pool for the evenings we just wanted to cook at home. The suite we stayed in was perfect in all aspects. The upgraded appliances worked great, and the sun set view being on the 8th floor was breathtaking every night from the balcony. I would highly recommend the Kaanapali Alii if you want luxury, comfort, service, convenience, and beauty all at your fingertips daily. There is nothing else you need. They take care of everything so all you need to do is relax, enjoy, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

My girlfriend and I spent a week at the Alii in May. We stayed in unit 232, a one-bedroom garden view unit that has been updated. While we enjoyed the spaciousness of the condo, we were pleasantly surprised with the partial ocean view we had from the living room and lanai. We had expected to have a view of tropical foliage, and got a view of the ocean instead. The Alii is on the best part of Kaanapali Beach, and we divided our time between the beach and the newly-renovated pool area. There were plenty of free beach chairs and we never had a problem getting a lounge around the pool. We cooked in many nights and everything we needed was supplied in the kitchen. The in-room washer and dryer was very convenient and detergent is supplied. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a very relaxing vacation, and we can't wait to go back.

This is a terrific family destination. There is a tremendous amount of fun for the kids that the Alii offers. The new pool and workout center are second to none. It is also just across the streeet from terrific golfing, shops and restuarants (Leilanis Mai Tai's!). I don't think you can beat that value of the Alii anywhere on Maui. Great Staff, beautiful location and all the amenities you need.

As I said above, Alii made my vacation. The facility is high quality with very nice surroundings and lots to do: tennis, gym, spa, pools, and beautiful beach. The employees were so friendly and responsive. I looked forward to early morning coffee in the outdoor television area adjacent to the pools. It was a nice, friendly gathering spot for all.

The location is perfect: right on the beach walkway, near but not too close to shops and restaurants. It seemed like everything was a pleasant 5 to 10 minute walk.

If you want to be assured of having a wonderful vacation choose the Alii.
