“Paradise”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

This was the perfect family resort -- we booked four rooms -- grandparents, three kids with spouses, one with three children (grandchildren). We found a travel agent, Donna Bender, who was invaluable in helping us get the right rooms, and I would recommend her highly, especially if you aren't familiar with Maui. Wasn't an issue for us, but there is no "night life" in Napili -- the main strip in Kaanapali would be more appropriate if you like to hit bars and lively crowds at night. If you are traveling with kids, can't imagine a better place. Staff was great, having a beer in the bar overlooking the ocean is heavenly.

Room Tip: They have many wings and rooms differ slightly. We had five different rooms (we extended, but had t...

We just returned from a beautiful week at Napili Kai Resort. The staff was so accommodating and friendly. From our check in experience to our departure we felt the service was great ! The restaurant on site served us great meals at affordable prices. The grounds were immaculate.
We walked out of our rooms to the beautifully maintained beach in two minutes. We also enjoyed their Spa... We both had a great massage. We saw all ages there. From families with young children to seniors, all seemed to be enjoying themselves. The landscape held beautiful views wherever you looked. We had fun watching the whales... snorkeling... swimming.... and ..enjoying the sunsets. The rooms are a little dated, but so well maintained and clean it did not bother us at all. Most of the people we talked to come every year or had been there before. We hope to return again too !

My wife and I have traveled fairly extensively to a number of resorts and islands, and were disappointed with this resort. It is definitely geared towards an older crowd (we are 29 and 31 years old). I did not want/expect a "party" atmosphere in any respect, but when arrived the first night at 10:00 PM, everything was shut down...we were not able to get a drink/dinner anywhere. The next day we spent time at the resort, the beach was nice, but there wasnt much to do there other than the beach. The food and drinks were overpriced and limited in their options. We were there a total of three nights, and our last night we had planned to go to the resort restaurant to eat...it closed at 9:00, except when we got there they had (unannounced) decided to close at 8:00 instead for renovations.

I guess I am being a bit picky, but it just seemed like the for the amount we paid they should have had better service/amenities. The beach was beautiful, but we could have experienced it without paying the resort costs. There were also ants in our room.

I went to Napili Kai for an annual trip to see Ram Dass on retreat in December 2012 and 2013. The food is amazing at the beach restaurant. The sunsets every night are to die for. Everyone just stops at night and sits in awe of the beauty. We went snorkeling this time with a local friend of mine and learned alot about the coral. There was no need to go anywhere else. We had ocean views and the hotel room had lounge chairs and you could literally not find anywhere that wasn't pristine and beautiful. The staff and everyone at the hotel is so kind and always smiling they ever prepared a separate meal for me even though I was with a group because I didn't like seafood. You never want to leave. Going back again next year for sure! Worth the 10 hour plane ride even from Pa.

We have stayed at the Napili Kai Beach Resort many times over the last nearly 30 years, and it keeps getting better. The staff are awesome, the rooms are comfortable and it is nice and quiet. When you spend 50 weeks working toward that 2 week vacation, this is a fabulous place to recharge for the next cycle.

Room Tip: We like Lani 2 on the second floor

The location could not be better! Our room, Lani 305 had a fantastic view over the loveliest bay. The bay/beach was on site and a nice one to swim. About 50 feet from the resort, Kapalua Bay was great for snorkeling. The ocean walk to Kapalua point was a nice walk. The room itself was a studio with a full kitchen. It did not have a/c and we had no problem. We slept with the patio door and louvers open. It was wonderful! Restaurant was mixed - my husband had the mixed grill and it was not good....I had the rib eye and it was great.

Room Tip: Rooms are different depending on who owns it -however, ours was renovated and quite comfortable.

Loved the location right on a beautiful beach with lovely sunsets. The hotel is a little in need of renovation but our room was spacious and comfy. The restaurant overlooked the beach and the happy hour appetizers in particular were really yummy.
