The shops are typical mall shops with tourist stores thrown in. The is a food court and a couple of restaurants. Parking was difficult and very crowded, but many of the Ka’anapali resorts have ahuttles.

Whalers village has several nice nice restaurants and food areas. Bars are in the restaurants. Many shops to visit. Restaurants were usually crowded. But waits were not too long. Food was good but not inexpensive. Has a ABC store.

Sad to think that they used to hunt and kill the whales. It was interesting though to see the tools they used to use; learning/seeing parts of history is always interesting.

We've been visiting Whaler's Village for over 30 years, and although we have enjoyed our shopping and dining while there, we've noticed that the venue has lost its uniqueness. It's now just another shopping village, populated by the same stores as any other vacation spot....More

After a looooong renovation, the shops at whalers are finally finished. They have resumed the Hula shows and there is a play area for children. I found no problem with the old style, but it is beautiful and finished and Monkey Pod is open.
