My husband and I are owners at the Villas. We were there with family and friends from Saturday, March 9th thru Saturday, March 16th. There were a total of 14 of us. We spent time by the pool in the North property off and on during our stay. While we were there, we had the

I’ve got mixed feelings about this place... Firstly, the complex is an absolute Goliath... a sprawling holiday-rentals property situated on the Kaanapali beach front and flanked by equally large properties on either side. Sun-beds are racked and stacked like tinned

View from room #7255, with the ocean in the far distance.
Nice rain showerhead in shower; as well as a separate hand-held shower spout. The tiles in the shower hurt your feet, as they are not evenly grouted.
Nicely furnished bathroom, but is not completely private, with a window into the room and doors that don't completely close. 1 sink.
Studio Room - Bldg. 7. Small kitchenette in hall. Washer/Dryer in entryway. Small private balcony with 2 chairs. Comfortable bed. 10 minute walk, with 14 turns to get from lobby to room.

I would agree with the other responder, the staff is extremely accomadating. If there is a room available they would probably let you move into it as soon as it is clean. At the very least they would hold your luggage until the room opened. Also, the Walmart run on the way there is good advice. Carrying grocery bags on the shuttle is a nuisance.

Easiest is to just rent it from the pool activities center at the resort (where you pick up towels by the pool). Not necessarily cheapest, but definitely convenient. In lots of cases, if you buy something like a pair of Maui Jim sun glasses, they'll throw in rental of snorkel gear for the week. Cheapest is probably to find a coupon for somewhere like Boss Frog's, but you'll have to grab the gear in town and return it into town. Definitely get the self-clearing snorkel for a couple dollars extra(any water that gets in automatically blows out the bottom of the pipe vs getting sucked into the lungs). Also, they do free Snuba lessons every morning. Like snorkel, but they attach an air tank floating on a raft on the surface. So light and easy like snorkel, but you can go down 15 feet and keep breathing and never suck in water. Free lesson daily is in the pool. If you like it, they sell afternoon escorted tour on the reef. The larger snorkel tours also have snuba onboard as an upsell.

That’s a good question and a great idea! Those items were fairly inexpensive at the local Walmart and Costco. To be honest, I’d recommend calling the hotel first to see if they’d be willing to accommodate receiving a shipment on your behalf.

"Corner room, building 8! Beautiful!"
"Pack a non-stick skillet if you want to make your own breakfasts!"
"If it matters to you, try to ask for room away from designated smoking area and kids play area. "
"Rooms near restaurants are very noisy in the middle of the night, due to truck deliveries. Very long distances to many rooms."
