Napili Point Resort

Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

Just returned from a week long stay at Napili Point Resort with family and friends. The location of this resort does not get any better! We had the time of our lives and could have stayed forever! We rented a 2 bedroom oceanfront which slept two families, and our friends rented a 1 bedroom oceanfront for their family. The room we stayed in was room C-11 (2 bedroom) and it was nicely decorated and clean! The kitchen was updated and very well stocked with everything we needed. The unit was also loaded with supplies for the beach (beach chairs, pool noodles, cooler, ice packs, umbrella, and binoculars). The balcony overlooks the pool and the ocean.. you can sit on the balcony during whale season and see the whales! It's spectacular! Overlooking the pool was beneficial for us when the kids (8, 9 and 12 yrs old) wanted to swim in the pool so we could oversee them from our balcony if we did not feel like sitting by the pool... And the pool was never really crowded so we did not have a lot of noise from it. Both bedrooms in this unit have comfortable king size beds, which was very nice for the adults since some rooms have two twins. There is also a pull out queen size sofa sleeper in the living room, it was fine for our kids, but probably not the most comfortable choice for adults. The upstairs bedroom (which is an open loft to downstairs) has the amazing view of the ocean, and the sounds of the waves if you leave the balcony slider door open. The downstairs bedroom is more private, which is a plus when traveling with kids, but does not have the view or sounds of the ocean. Both rooms have their own bathroom; the downstairs bathroom in the bedroom is the only one downstairs so is shared with guests visiting or those sleeping on the pull out couch.
The second unit that our friends rented was room A-10. This is the one bedroom oceanfront and the view is amazing! It is literally on the ocean! The room was not updated and a little more run down. It also was not as loaded with the extras that we had in C-11. However, when we walked down to their room we never cared about the inside - the attraction of this room is the incredible view of the ocean.. We spent most of our time on their lanai enjoying the most amazing sunsets, views and sounds of the ocean. The out-dated kitchen and decor did not matter to any of us! The king size bed was comfortable and the pull out sofa was fine for their teenage girls.
We spent most days either snorkeling in the bay which is just steps outside of the one bedroom unit and loaded with sea turtles and fish! We rented our snorkel equipment for a reasonable price for the week at Snorkel Bobs around the corner. We also took the quick 5 minute walk over to napili beach every day and swam in the ocean.
Close by dining- I Highly recommend breakfast at The Gazebo, which is famous for their breakfast fried rice .. It is delicious and can feed an army! We also had happy hour and lunch a few times at The Sea House - both places a few minutes walk from the resort and right on Napili beach. We also ate at Merrimans, which has spectacular views and incredible food (reservations recommended for dinner), this is a little further of a walk around the point along the beach, or a quick drive. You can also find a lot of great dining driving into Lahaina, we never had a bad meal during our stay!
We booked a champagne sunset cruise, a whale watching tour and a helicopter tour- all amazing and recommended. You will not be disappointed booking at Napili Point Resort! We are definitely coming back!!! Aloha and mahalo!

We were a family of 5 and stayed comfortably in unit C40. The place is neat and has all the ameneties you could want. The view was amazing. We liked the ability to use as a base. Our favorite beach when we werent snorkeling with the turtles was DT Fleming less than 2 minutes down the road - boogie boarding was great. They give you a beach towel while not great does the job for your stay. The daily maid service was a great perk too.

My wife and I stayed in suite A1. The perfect room. All the amenities were there, clean, comfy bed, kitchen fine, service fine.
Best of all though....The ocean waves break on the lava rocks and tide pools 75 feet in front of the room. We really enjoyed being at that level. the higher rooms are no doubt lovely but we felt like we were in our own private cabin on the beach. There is a public walkway between the room and the beach but we were not at all bothered by the occasional passersby.
Swam with the turtles in the bay to the south! Sandy beach (Napili Bay) to the north is lovely.
Wednesday evening at Slack Key Guitar show at Napili Ki Hotes was worth the trip to Maui by itself.

Private - not on the main walking thoroughfare
Pristine view of the ocean, crashing surf, surfers and snorkeling cove (where you can snorkel with the green turtles) AND beautiful sunsets. Also, there is a pool close by and a large white sand beach about 100 yds walk away.
Unit is the perfect size for a couple, is beautifully decorated, has a comfortable bed and living room furniture and the kitchen is thoroughly stocked with any pot, bowl or accoutrement you could want. Eat on the private patio or inside. It truly looks like the home and view you would want to have on Maui.

We spent 15 nights at Napili Point January 27-Feb. 11. Every moment was wonderful. The views cannot be beat, housekeeping is fabulous, parking is generous. We would prefer a bath with a walk-in shower rather than a tub, but that is a personal preference that not all would agree with. The units are not new, but they are very well cared for, as are the beautiful grounds. We would definitely go back -- in fact we did. This was our second visit!

Napili Point was recommended to us by our travel agent. After reading some of the reports we were a bit concerned what we would find. Upon arrival we were very pleased by what we saw. The unit we were given (B5) was very well equiped and maintained. Easy acess to and from beach. So cool to be able to go to sleep and awaken to the sound of the ocean. Staff was eager to help us with any need. Only needed their help once. We would recommend this resort to any one and will return again. There was no resturant on premisis (thus no room service), but it is fully equiped condos so that was no problem. And there are many eating places close by.

Room Tip: Rooms on B level are easiest to acess. There is no problem getting to the A or C condos other than s...

NAPILI POINT RESORT

Hello fellow Hawaiian visitors, we spent 2 week in Maui over the Christmas/New Year’s break (2013/14), of which 10 days was at Napili Point Resort. We had a great time at Napili Point Resort and highly recommend that you consider staying there. It’s not glitzy by any means but it’s very well designed, has a terrific location, fantastic views, and is set in lush Hawaii.

We normally vacation in the Caribbean and this was our second holiday to Hawaii. We had visited the Islands a few years ago (for 3 weeks) and spent 10 days in Ka’anapali while on Maui so I do have a point of comparison. Also, on our recent trip, we spent 4 nights in Wailea (South Maui) at the Marriott.

From a budget/cost benefit I have no idea how Napili Point Resort compares to others, because at peak season, almost everything in Maui is booked, some a year in advance. Also, keep in mind that almost EVERYTHING in Hawaii is expensive, with a few exceptions.

We rented suite C22 (directly from the owner) and it had a spectacular view of Honokeana Bay and across to the Island of Moloka’i and The Island of Lana’i to the south. The view, and in particular, the sunsets were nothing short of SPECTACULAR. From our elevated patio we saw many whales, dolphins, the twelve or so local sea turtles in Honokeana Bay, and a terrific show of surfers. I would take a great view hands-down over proximity to a beach. This particular unit was a 2 bedroom with kitchen and a common area. The unit was nicely decorated with a great lay out. The other family we vacationed with booked through the resort but they ended up right next door, allowing us to chat to each other from patio-to-patio.

What I liked about Napili Point Resort was location, location, location. The physical location vis-à-vis the ocean/view was great as were the grounds. You could smell the sea, nature was abundant, and the grounds impeccable. Right off the property is a lovely area for paddle boarding and snorkeling that was protected from the winds/waves for the most part and is the habitat of loads of sea turtles. That being said, getting into the water takes work. There is no easy access to the bay so one must do a little lava walking and be able to have the strength to climb in and over rocks. It’s not an issue if you are patient and wear beach shoes to help climb in and out. The neighbouring resort to the south has better water access, and if you ask “nice” at the front desk, they will let you get into the bay from their property. This is America, don’t forget, where ocean front property and private property have a unique relationship: all waterfront is public but getting to it can be difficult!

A second advantage of Napili Point Resort is access to Napili Beach which is a 5 minute walk north. It is accessed by either walking along a rough path along the shore, or cutting through the neighbouring resort that is adjacent to the south end of the beach. Napili Beach is the quintessential Hawaiian Beach: perfect water, some reef areas, great beach, palm trees, views and surrounded by low rise Polynesian style resorts. The very well regarded MAUI REVEALED guidebook rates this beach tops on Maui; the rating is well deserved. Walk to this beach. Do not drive as there is no parking any closer.

One beach further to the North is the beach at Kapalua Bay which is fantastic. There was really good snorkelling on the North side and the beach was protected from the wind and surges. Kapalua Bay Beach is a 15 minute walk on the side of the local road (no sidewalk) or if you go early there is public parking on the South side of the Beach. The north end of the Beach has a large reef that is very beautiful for snorkelling. Also, the North end is the start of the Kapalua path which is great for running or just for a walk. If you are a “cliff jumper” the next bay North of Kapalua Bay is a local hang out. It’s accessed off the main path through a conservation area. Jumps are 10-20 feet and there is a ladder to get out of the ocean.

A third advantage of the resort area is that is nestled into a lively and real feeling Hawaiian community with good access to stores, rental outfits, restaurants and so forth. The local Napili shopping area (5 minute drive) has a great market, there are nice restaurants nearby, and its a two minute walk to Water Works Beach Rentals where you can rent beach chairs, stand up paddle boards, boggy boards, and loads of free advice from the very friendly owner. About 7 miles to the South is Lahania which is THE tourist town full of restaurants, stores, marine services, history, etc. and has loads of CHARM. Parking can be tight but if you head south take the “Front Street” exit, pass the marina and park in the free 3 hour lot. There are a few surf schools in Lahania and if you have a morning lesson, it’s no more than 20 minutes from Napili Point Resort. The Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy was really good, even for old 50 something guys like me (who got talked into it) who managed to get up and have a bona fide surf experience (thanks DAN, the instructor). As these units have kitchens, your options for groceries is the local Napili Market (very good but not large), a few miles south to TIMES (very good, large and bargain beer, wine, etc.) and then all the way into Lahania where there are several supermarkets (like Safeway, but you need to sign up for a Safeway card for the specials).

Lastly, the resort has two pools and two communal barbeque areas. We tended to hang out at the A Level pool (closest inland) and enjoyed the views of the ocean and sunsets at day’s end. The barbeques were brand new, well cleaned, somewhat accessible and well lit at night. Night comes quickly in Hawaii in the winter time so by 7 pm its dark. With eight of us in total, we enjoyed a few nights cooking on the grills to avoid line ups and of course expensive restaurant bills. There are many manicured lawns in front of the b level units. This is ideal for young kids. They can play there and the parents can easily keep an eye on them, drink in hand.

The daily cleaning service was excellent and in our ten day stay we had our unit cleaned by noon every day. I left a $5 tip for the staff every day and they seemed appreciative (mostly cleaners from the Philippines). The resort has security staff and I never got the sense that safety was an issue. That being said, our unit had a safe and we used it.

I read that morning rains could be an issue. In 10 days, one morning was on the wet side.

That’s the very positive review.

On the negative side, like a lot of Hawaii, Napili Point Resort was built with the automobile in mind. Walking/jogging requires skill as there are no sidewalks in the immediate area. There is not public path nearby. Also, many units probably need a make-over, but ours felt very Hawaiian in feel and was perfectly fine. The resort itself was originally built in the late 1960’s. What this means is smallish rooms and no fancy “infinite pools”. Some don’t like that, but too me the era is what gives it strength. Nothing in Napili is built taller than a palm tree – that’s the building code!

The walk to the beaches to the north and the pathway in Kapalua involve some exercise. So if you can’t walk, or don’t like walking, this is not your resort.

In terms of local restaurants, the Hawaiian BBQ restaurant in the neighbouring resort (next door to the north) had good fulsome food but it’s a bit too cafeteria style for my liking. The Gazebo restaurant next door (breakfast and lunch) was always packed. Line ups by 7.30 AM to get in for 8.30 AM.

This is the third area of Maui I’ve stayed at. If I was only on the Island for a few nights I’d prefer Ka’anapali but for a week or so I think Napili is great. Both are a short drive to Lahaina which is an excellent colonial feeling town with charm and an easy going feeling. It’s also the base of many boat excursions (20 mins/ok parking). The other boating area is Ma’alaea Bay Harbour (45 minute drive/tight parking). The Napili/Ka’anapali/Lahaina area has lots to do and help counters what to me is the biggest drawback about Hawaii -- the car. Roads are jammed with traffic so why not stay in an area where you can spend as little time as possible in the car?

If you do visit the area and are a “hiker” I highly recommend the Lahaina Pali Trail. It’s not as exciting as the trails up at Haleakala but it’s a morning hike with limited driving time. This is an arid hike with a great view. It starts right off of Highway 30 just south of Papalaua Beach and just north of the “tunnel”. There is a small parking lot on the east side of Highway 30 (unmarked) which is the trail head. I noticed it was on our National Car rental map. A 75 minute walk up takes you near the windmills. This is not a loop trail so its 75 minutes back down. To me this was the best “Underrated” activity on Maui and its FREE! Compare that to the price to take a family of four zip-lining! (Tip: never leave anything you care to lose in your car. If you are parking in an isolated area leave the car unlocked with nothing inside but wet towels. Hawaii has more “broken car window glass” in parking lots than any place I have been.)

ENJOY YOUR TRIP TO HAWAII AND YOU’LL LOVE NAPILI POINT RESORT.

Room Tip: The higher up the room, the better the view. Level c (2 bedrooms) were great.
