This is such a convenient spot on the beach! We snorkel 1/2 block walk away at Black Rock(one of the best spots on Maui for snorkeling!) The hotel staff is very friendly! Walking distance to. The Whaler's Village Mall, many shops including ABC Store and a food court on the paved beach path. This is our 6th visit and we always come back here. Wonderful restaurants in the hotel Courtyard also!!! Maui Sheraton is right next door!

Sixth visit. Ocean front 3rd floor room for 16 days which was great but no elevator in our wing which we were not informed of at booking. Great sunset views from deck. Room would have been better with a microwave to warm up leftovers. New restuarant onsite but unable to get reservations. REALLY miss the tiki bar and the hula shows which were my favorite parts of prior visits. Still think there is room on the grounds to bring them back. Overall another great visit and plan to return for visit #7.

We have stayed here over a dozen times. We love the new rooms and the ease of getting to the ocean and shops. It is most definitely our home away from home.

This is the best beach for chilling and enjoying the water. Everything you need is on Kaanapali Beach. Eat, go on adventures, watch a luau, snorkel, etc!!

3rd visit to property. The property is updating, which is definitely awesome. Room cost for old sections versus new is not worth the price paid in old section. Did not like price charged for what received/ used. Disappointed in this visit as room had maintenance issues that went unresolved after two requests. When repair was done, issue of lighting issue still remained. Tile floor was beat up and marked up. Not what I expected having stayed previously.

We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced, and that the issues in your room were not resolved to your satisfaction during your stay. Our goal is to meet and exceed our guests' expectations, and we obviously did not meet this goal. We have completed renovations on two of the four wings of our hotel, and these new Premium rooms are now available in the Papaku and Kauhale wings.
