I think we got the best unit at Napili Point. It wasn't cheap and run down. It was roomy and clean. We snorkeled in the bay right in front with sea turtles and watched the sunset over Lanai. We had the ocean front so we had a nice front yard and we sat outside everyday. The only downfall is that is is far from the airport, major shopping and harbor (if you are planning to go on a boat trip) so you really had to consider travel time. Especially during rush hour. There were two truck accidents in the one week we were there and it took us a long time coming back from the Kihei side up to Napili. But we also like the secludedness of Napili better than the busy and too touristy Kaanapali area. Closer to Lahaina, dining at the Hula Grill was great.

Our family stayed in Unit C-7 for 4 nights and we were delighted. This is a two bedroom unit, consisting of a decent sized living room/eating area, appropriately sized kitchen, master bedroom and a second bedroom which is a loft over the living area, and two bathrooms. The view is phenominal -- I just oozed happiness sitting on the lanai! The apartment itself is up a set of stairs, which may be a problem if you have strollers or other impediments. There is no air conditioning but cross ventilaion and fans worked well and we were comfortable. The grounds were very well maintained, with grassy areas and nice landscaping. Lovely swimming pool -- actually I believe there are 2 pools but we only saw one). To the left of the complex is a good snorkeling cove with many turtles and there is a good beach to the right -- both within walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay here and would return in a heartbeat! Two thumbs up!

We just spent 9 days in a 2br condo at Napili Point. I hesitate to write a great review because I don't want the secret to get out -- but this is a great spot to be if you are looking for a beautiful but more low-key location. We loved our condo (29B) which was beautifully decorated and in perfect condition. There were beach chairs, noodles and (broken) boogie boards in the closet. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and the grounds were immaculate.

We are beach people, and spent half the time at the Napili Bay and the other half at Fleming Beach where there are great waves this time of year. Our kids snorkeled with the turtles and everywhere else. In fact, the snorkeling was so beautiful out our back door that we actually canceled our reservations to Molikini!

We did end up driving a bit, but it was not a problem since parking is easy virtually everywhere we went. We went to dinner in Kaanapali three times, and I didn't think it was nearly a beautiful as where we were. But if you like crowded beaches and packed restaurants then by all means stay there. If you are looking for a family-friendly and romantic atmosphere with smaller condos, a beautiful sandy beach on one side, a secluded bay with turtles on the other side, and no high-rise hotels then Napili is terrific!

My family and I stayed at Napili Point for the second time, this time in unit A-25, reserved privately through VRBO. While there are many positives (proximity to a fantastic beach, view of the bay, saw 8 turtles one day!, quiet pools, nice landscaping, bbq's and picnic tables scattered about, generally beautiful area of Maui) we had the unfortunate luck to rent a unit that was very uncomfortable due to no air circulation. The way this particular unit was situated, there are only windows/slider on one side, therefore no cross breeze could be found. A large hedge was also in front of the unit thus blocking the breeze even more. You really couldn't use the oven or the washer and dryer because of the heat already inside the unit. We actually had to check out and find another place to stay and just bite the bullet on paying for two places. The owner was unresponsive regarding the situation.

My advice is this - Napili Point is a wonderful place to stay but you have to be careful about which unit you rent and where it is situated. I would rent through the management office next time rather than a private party because if there is a problem, at least they are on site and can move you to another unit.

RandyR, Owner Unit A-25 at Napili Point Resort, responded to this reviewResponded February 28, 2008

As the owners of Unit A-25 we appreciate the opportunity to comment on reviews. As it is part of our livelihood, we take pride in our property and great concern when a guest has a problem. We are at the unit
2-4 times a year maintaining and upgrading the property. In the last three years everything has been replaced at least once. It goes without saying linens and other consumables get replaced regularly, but we replace appliances, furnishings, and finishes constantly. We do this to provide the best experience we can for our guests. The A/C unit typically gets replaced annually as they seem to be left on by all guests 24 hrs a day. The HOA charges additional fees for the privilege of having A/C, while we still provide the lowest rates of any unit in the resort. We are one of the few units in the resort that have any A/C, one of 13, I believe, in a 115 unit resort. Of all these units, approximately 1/3 have the exact same configuration, room layout and orientation. No units in this resort or in any of the nearby complexes have central A/C, typically again there is none at all.

The reality is that in July and August in the islands it can be very
hot at times. If you want to be on the Lahaina side of Maui and face the ocean then you are going to have a West facing unit. Simple curtain
management to control the heat gain in the afternoon would have made big difference. We never attempt to portray the A/C other than what it is, a wall unit in the bedroom. If doors are kept closed it will keep the unit comfortable during the day and most important to a lot of people, allow for a good nights sleep.
With regard to compensation, we are not a hotel, but try to do as much
as we can. We have had only one other serious complaint in the time we
have rented this unit. These people were refunded and we immediately
flew to Maui to access the issues, as we were concerned about what we
heard. Yes, we really did. In this most recent case, we were informed of the issue after the guest had changed places. In the end, we still
cannot control the weather.

We offer an upgraded, well maintained unit at a quality property at the
lowest price of any unit in the resort. Never-the-less, we are sorry
for the fact that one of our guests was uncomfortably hot in the tropics in the middle of summer.

This was a vacation with extended family so we had a total of 4 condos between us. All of them were very nice, although some were more up-to-date than others. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained and the snorkeling was wonderful. It would be great if there was an easier and safer way to get into the water as the rocks that had to be navigated were rather treacherous. The views from the lanais and our small yard were absolutely stunning and we had a hard time tearing ourselves away to get out and do other things! Be sure to go to the Gazebo Restaurant at the condo complex next door for breakfast. There's always a line to get in but it's worth the wait!
