Having just returned from 10 days in Hawaii, for my Birthday,I have to say our stay in Maui in this wonderful hotel has left us with memories we will never forget. There is nothing about this place that we didn't like,. Loved the very friendly staff who always greeted us with a big warm smile, promptly followed by an "Aloha" . Our room (on the Maui floor) was just amazing, we had partial views of the sea, but was high enough to see the sunset and capture some amazing images on our camera. Our room looked onto the wonderful green gardens which were immaculate, you could sunbath , rest & relax anywhere you choose as there are plenty of sun loungers provided dotted all over the garden/pool & beach side areas.In the evening, you could sit on your balcony and listen to the waves with Hawaiian music playing in the background ! We loved the history of the place...50 years old and has an amazingly strong Hawaiian culture running through it, this was felt from first entering the hotel on our first day.We didn't have the breakfast package as we had booked tours which left early in the morning, they did however offer to make something up for us, but it wasn't necessary as both our tours included breakfast & lunch. You are so close to everything and can do as much or as little as you choose. Whalers Village is only a short walk away with some lovely shops and restaurants with wonderful atmosphere. Truly a holiday to remember, we have plans to return to this wonderful place with our family.

Room Tip: Our room on the Maui floor was perfect..you have the best of both worlds, a partial sea view that st...

This is the forth time we have stayed at Kaanapali Beach hotel and again we had a wonderful Hawaiian holiday we made this hoilday a family one - All the staff members are very helpful and friendly not a day went pass without great service . From the moment we arrived and parked our
hire car and walked into the hotel lobby we were all greeted and in our rooms within 10 minutes
We always get the Breakfast package deal & ocean front room or Ocean view room - it is not a modern hotel but the grounds are great to just relax and walk around each morning it is a real Hawaiian hotel - Swimming pool is a bit small but with the ocean two minutes away it did not matter
Kaanapalli Beach is straight in front of the hotel at the Blackrock end where each night you can watch the sunset and the local man jump off the rock and the activites hut is right on the beach we went whale watching it was one of the best things we have done on the Island it was magic

Great walk way to the little shopping Village with some very nice restaurants
We will stay there again on our next visit to Maui we just love coming back it is like our home away from home
Thank you again Kaanapalli for a wondeful holiday

Room Tip: Always book Ocean front to watch the sunset or Ocean view with the Breakfast package & car deal...

The Ka'anapali Beach Hotel is a great Hawaiian place to stay. It is a local and not a big chain. Their packages are great. We used the "island romance" package which includes nice options including breakfast every day. The hotel is low key and everybody is very friendly. It is a good base from which to do lots if interesting stuff some of which are part of the packages. This is our second trip there and we won't go any place else. There is nightly free hawaiian entertainment. If you are going to Maui, look them up!

Room Tip: All rooms are good. I think all have ocean view. The more expensive rooms are closer to the ocean...

Clean with all the amenities one would expect at a reasonably priced hotel. Excellent location on the beach. Close to shopping. Lots of activities available. Food was great but the big thing about this hotel is the wonderful staff. Friendly, efficient, about as close ideal as one could ask for in hotel staff. They are proud of their Hawaiian culture and love sharing it.

This is my third stay at Ka'anapali Beach hotel and really would not consider staying anywhere else. The location alone makes up for some of the complaints that I see voiced in other reviews. As to the complaints yes I do think the hotel needs to upgrade wifi services and yes they do need to work on sprucing up some of the dated appearance of the rooms. This being said the rooms were very clean we were in the Molokai wing and loved our lanai's partial ocean view. You are visiting Maui so you need to be out enjoying nature not spending time in the hotel room so flat screens and fancy rooms aren't worth what you pay at the other properties in Ka'anapali and yes I have stayed at the Marriot there and would pick KBH over it. What makes this hotel truly a joy to stay at is the lovely friendly employees and being so close to the black rock snokeling. The grounds are beautiful and I prefer lawns and trees to concrete. I did not take part in the lei making classes etc this trip but have in the past and enjoyed them. Breakfast buffet was wonderful and I am going thru food withdrawals I miss my quiche and pineapple. This hotel is not for everyone but if you have priced it out comparing the other options on this beach unless you just have money to burn this is the one to pick. Make sure you attend the farewell lei ceremony and become ohana with KBH.

I'm saddened by some of the reviews I've read about KBH. We recently returned from our second trip to Maui and KBH and had a great stay. The staff is top rate and very hard working. It was comforting to see the the majority of the same staff when you return. The breakfast buffet was included in our rate. It had numerous choices and was outstanding. We enjoyed the FREE nightly entertainment. Sure there are some extras you have to pay for if you want them-internet being one of them. It's the same in Las Vegas. KBH never advertised as an all inclusive. We are already looking forward to a return trip next year.

We had a truly fantastic time staying on Maui, and felt very well looked after by the staff at KBH. The location is supreme, so very close to beautiful Ka'anapali Beach, where snorkelling by Black Rock is literally five minutes walk from your room. It is a reasonably quiet snorkelling spot, that seems made for residents of KBH. The Hawaiian cultural lessons offered by the hotel really should not be missed- you might feel a bit of a tourist turning up, but the staff make you feel like you belong on Maui, and you'll walk away wearing your beautiful Lei or humming along to Ukelele songs. Thank you Ka'anapali Beach Hotel for a truly fantastic, and really authentic hawaii vacation experience.
