I just wanted to provide a valid review that I wish I had read or taken time to look at before booking the KBC. The Kaanapali Beach Club looks upscale and delightful from the pictures but I assure you it is not upscale which is just fine for some. It does not deserve four stars.
A four star hotel generally has pool service: KBC does not.
A four star hotel generally has room service: KBC does not
A four star hotel generally provides maid service daily: KBC does not
A four star hotel generally has 3 or 4 star dining experience: KBC does not
A four star hotel generally has towels at the pool: KBC did not have them for hours at a time due to broken washing machines.
This hotel is fine for spring break or families who want a cheap vacation.
The cooking in the room across the hall explains this. They cooked every meal in room and it was so disgusting to smell their food and then they left their garbage in front of the room as if there was room service...which there is none.
The food at the restaurant was so bad the birds would not eat it.
The location is beautiful except for the poor eroding beach. The rooms are clean and large. You will have no privacy on your balcony as they all look into one another.
The place is in need of a remodel. It has shabby paint, tile and the gardens are not meticulous. Some are and others have weeds, ants and trash in them.
This is a time share property it should be called a condo it is not a hotel.
The people were friendly but did want to sell time share properties. The buffet was fine but not great,
If you stay here just know you are not staying in a four star hotel. I would give it 3 stars and you need to know there is NOT one bit of luxury or service.
My husband and I enjoyed staying here with my brother and his wife. We loved watching whales from the beach, loved their large heated pool, and the food served there was delicious! My husband loved the chicken wings and had them several times. Very convenient to Cannery Mall and Lahaina!
This place needs a remodel. We stayed in 2 different rooms, both smelled terrible, like mildew. The first room had mould growing on the walls in the bathroom and damp patches where the paint was bubbled and flaking due to dampness. I asked 3 times to be moved & they refused each time, i finally had the company I booked with call them directly & then they miraculously found another room. There is hardly any beach.
we have stayed here for the last 8 years. the condo's are magnificent. Large & clean. The hotel grounds are beautiful. the pool is gigantic with a separate children's pool. it is right on the beach. lot of activities to do. there is a bar right by the pool which is large. They have a new chef. I believe his name is Jeff. The menu and food was incredible. better than 5 stars and the prices are fair. the hotel employees make us feel like family. that's why we keep going back. this is the cleanest and most fabulous hotel on the beach.
Enjoyed it. The rooms are large and furnished nice. Pool is nice but beach is not up to par. Charge a $25 a day service fee to park car.
