Kaanapali Beach Hotel

Maui, Hawaii

Virgin rating

The hotel

Something of a state treasure, Ka'anapali Beach Hotel truly captures the spirit of Hawaii, teaching guests the true meaning of ‘Aloha’. Warm and extremely welcoming, you’ll feel like one of the family as soon as you arrive. Guest rooms are large and spacious, with original artwork and island-style wicker and rattan, as well as a furnished balcony from which to admire stunning ocean, courtyard or garden views. The courtyard is something of a sanctuary, shaded by Kukui Nut Trees, ever blooming Plumerias and 6-storey palm trees. Kids will love the whale-shaped swimming pool as well as the Aloha Passport for Kids program. Adults, meanwhile, can engage in Lauhala weaving, Ukulele lessons, Hula lessons or Hawaiian language lessons. Hawaiian entertainment is offered in the evening, and can be seen from the Tiki Terrace Restaurant.

Just do yourself a favor and find another hotel near by. The location is fantastic and there are plenty of other hotels around to choose from in the area. For a hotel that is close to 500 dollars a night you expect service, cleanliness, and quality but you will NOT get that from here.

Just do yourself a favor and find another hotel near by. The location is fantastic and there are plenty of other hotels around to choose from in the area. For a hotel that is close to 500 dollars a night you expect service, cleanliness, and quality but you will NOT get that from here. They will nickle and dime you at the front desk and then be mean about it at the front desk. The wont clean your room to the standard it should be. For example they didn't bother cleaning out the coffee pot or mugs for two days and when they did, all they did was rinse it out and then put it back. How would i know you ask? well there was still coffee rings on the inside of the "clean" coffee mugs that they put back. Don't bother with the breakfast buffet. You can get a better continental breakfast at a holiday inn. For $30 per person you would expect a little quality but that is not the case here. Again find another place to stay. I only give it 2 stars because of location. Read less

We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were friendly and we loved the proximity of restaurants and Whaler's Village shops. Huihui grill was an awesome place to dine and the good bye ceremony was very emotional.

My husband and I spent a week here in the beginning of May. Overall everything was great. But I do have a few tips for travelers. *When booking your rooms, there are 2 buildings. 1 older 1 newer. The older one does NOT have a elevator, so if this is a issue for you, reach out to the hotel ahead of time. The site did not make this clear when i booked many months ago (before new building opened). But they did make it right, so I could enjoy my trip) *The staff is super friendly. every last one. *the rooms were clean, and the linins soft. *If you want to use your ac, make sure your sliding door is closed 100%, theres a sensor that keeps the ac from working if its even open a hair. *The showers in the new tower are hinky. took almost the entire trip for me to figure out how to get it turned off right (hubby had to do it, since it always stuck for me). Also if you have allot of hair the water pressure is meh. you may wanna rinse your hair at a beach shower. *If you keep your doors open, The birds will (and did) come in to visit. The huihui restaurant - if you want to eat here for dinner, make a reservation early. But to be honest, there are better options for food at the Whalers village a few min walk down the boardwalk. The staff was great, and very attentive, but The food was ok. nothing exciting, or flavorful enough to be worth the money. Would I stay here again? yes. I hope to be back soon. Read less
