My family and I stayed here for a week in August a couple years ago (its says August 2014, because it wouldn't let me go back to 2011). We loved it so much. Kanapali is a great area with lots of shops, activities, restaurants. This hotel gives you great access to all of that and this side of the island. It is very family friendly, lots of kids. Would not recommend for a honeymoon because it is not a quiet place. The rooms/condos are quite large. We were a family of 6 people and everyone fit quite comfortably.

We stayed at the Kaanapali Alii fron July 24th -30th. We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo on the 9th floor in Building 2. The condo was spacious, well furnished and had upscale appliances and counter tops in the kitchen. The view was breathtaking!!! I have 2 teenage daughters and the queen bed and bathroom in the Den area was just perfect for them. The property is gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool area and the beach. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Chris, the bellman who helped us upon arrival was so upbeat and as he explained everything to us we became even more excited at staying there. We travel every summer and the Alii is one of the best condo experiences we have had. The daily maid service is a huge plus! We booked our vacation through Kay at www.mauikay.com and she was extremely helpful in making our dream vacation become a reality. The only negative is that they do not supply beach umbrellas.

We stayed here in july for 18 days. Unfortunately the two bedroom condos were sold out, but we were lucky to get a condo with a den with a queen size bed. That was adequate for our family with two kids.

I can only agree with the high score this resort gets on trip advisor. Ok, the first day after a long flight I was disappointed that there was nog bar or restaurant on the premises. There are plenty however in Whalers Village at 400 meters.

Staff was very helpful, rooms were clean, the view is fantastic and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. A nice thing to mention is that nearby the pool, there are 8 gas bbq's free for use. Excellent.

Room Tip: I cannot tell for sure, but with the exception of building 3 I have the impression that every room h...

We recently stayed at the Kaanapali Alii and couldn't have been happier. We stayed in room 271. It was nice to have 1400 sq. ft. instead of being confined to one room. The view was AMAZING!! The grounds were nice and well maintained. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Wendy (the concierge) was great and booked several activities for us. The pool was never crowded and the beach was really nice. The is not a restaurant on site but we didn't mind at all. Whalers Village is just a short walk along the beach and they have plenty of restaurants to choose from. Not to mention the restaurants at the hotels near by. We will definitely be back - hopefully next year!

I stayed in condo #233. It was a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom + a third room with a fold down bed. We had a gorgeous ocean view. The condo came equipped with EVERYTHING you could possibly think of. Even had a boogie board & snorkel gear so you didn't need to rent anything. 1900sq feet of total luxury. Unlike some of the neighboring properties Alii's pools and beachfront wasn't overly crowded and had a more peaceful & relaxing atmosphere. Do wish they had an on site restaurant but the walk to Whalers Village is only a minute stroll down the waterfront path. If you're looking for that perfect Maui getaway without all the crowds this is the place to stay. I will definitely be back here!

Room Tip: Definitely pay the extra money for an ocean view condo!! It's worth it!
