We have traveled to all of the Islands and Maui is our favorite. This was our first stay at NV and we were delighted. We took our three sons and decided that we would book two places: the Hyatt Regency - the classic resort with all the amenities - and here. Two of my sons decided to stay with me at Napili while my wife and pre-teen son stayed at the Hyatt. My oldest son tried it first and then the middle son decided to stay over the second night and he was sold after that. The Napili beach is secluded and has a sandy bottom without rocks (unlike the Hyatt beach). Napili provides a village atmosphere and the general store and beach are mere steps away from the rooms. The 1960s vintage accomodations are spartan, functional and clean, with just enough updating of the kitchen and bathroom (at least in our unit #10) to not feel dated. The grounds are well maintained and have a diverse group of shrubs and trees, including plumeria, coconut palms, hibiscus, banana and croton. There is a charcoal fired barbeque that sees a lot of action and because there are a small number of condos you are likely to meet your neighbors. Rick and Alyssa have been there for 16 years and keep everything nice and tidy. Altogether a terrific experience and value for the dollars if you don't need resort amenities.
