My husband and I spent a week at the Westin Kaanapali Villas for our honeymoon, courtesy of my in-laws, who are timeshare owners there. I suspect the experience would be different for those who are not owners, or paying customers, but we had a great time. Our 1-bedroom villa in the South tower had a partial ocean view (though I think it was designated an ocean view) as well as a view of the pool and a roomy balcony with chairs and table. It was about 5 mins to get from our 5th-floor room to the beach. We loved having the kitchen, washer/dryers, we loved grilling fresh fish at the grills by the pool, and the best snorkeling we found in Maui was right in front of our hotel.
We did not eat at any of the restaurants. The food looked pretty bad, sorry. Cocktail hour was always good though!
I think the most important thing here is to keep in mind that you will be experiencing some hybrid of a big resort/beach house rental vibe. We usually like to stay in smaller places but we really enjoyed our time here. Yes, there are a ton of kids running around so technically I guess it's not the most romantic place, but we enjoyed the family vibe. The service couldn't have been better. Parking was never a problem either. We enjoyed the nightly torch-lighting around the pool and thought the shuttle to Lahaina was a great convenience.
From the general sense I got of the pricing, I doubt we would ever stay here if we had to pay. But if you are a family with kids, or if you can stay there free like we did, haha, I think it's just about ideal.
