AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, FABULOUS RESORT- WONDERFUL TRIP
Reviewed 2 days ago

Could not have found a more beautiful location and resort for our amazing trip. Our condo (#172) was beautiful, very spacious, and so many unexpected extras were provided. Our condo had dishwasher and laundry detergent. Loved that very nice beach chairs were complementary. The partial ocean view was beautiful. The staff was so kind and helpful. The beach was very big and beautiful and the pools were very large and well-maintained. We were so convenient (walking distance) to restaurants and shopping. If we take this trip again, we most definitely would return to Kaanapali Alii Resort.

Stayed in two condos at the Alii
Reviewed 3 days ago

We had 9 people in two condos ( 455, 456 ) and we stayed a week in late may. Both units were excellent, I believe 455 ( mountain view side ) was a nicer unit in terms of furnishings but both were perfect for our group. The grounds were well-maintained, the staff were very courteous.

The best part was the location. Everyone in our group raved about it. The widest part of the beach ( definitely some erosion down closer to black rock ) but not here and only a short walk to Whaler's Village for restaurants and shopping.

Best Condo on Maui
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is our second time staying at the Alii and it did not disappoint. We stayed here 10 years ago and was impressed then and it's good to see it hasn't changed. This time we brought the kids. There was plenty of room, it was clean, cell reception is excellent and wifi good. Kaanapali beach is the best on Maui, and the beach walk along the neighboring resorts, shops, restaurants and bars is great. Parking is covered and staff is attentive and friendly. No hidden resort fees you may find at other places. Are there fancier places to stay at? Sure, but in my opinion the amenities and accommodations the Alii offers for the money cannot be beat. I hope it's not another 10 years before we come back, but when we do, the Alii will be first on our list to book.

WONDERFUL!!!

Loved this condo. We stayed in condo 351 and it was just perfect! The view was awesome!! We had unobstructed views of the ocean, pools and gardens. It was very clean and comfortable. Everything seemed pretty new. Huge condo and lots of natural lighting. Very large clean balcony with very comfy furniture. 2 bathrooms so my husband and I each had our own. Very large rooms. Very comfortable furniture. Everything you could possibly need is there except food. Parking is free, easy and safe. The location is wonderful. Right on the ocean and just a few minutes walk to whalers village shopping. There is a beach walk right out the door and it goes by everything. Shops, restaurants, activities, you name it, it's all right there. It is still very private because it's surrounded by beautiful gardens. Just a few minutes drive to Lahaina. The pools are clean and wonderful. 2 large hot tubs both clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Maid service is terrific and supplied every day. Our young ladies name was Lisa and she was awesome. Couldn't ask for anything better. From now on, we will stay at the Alii every time we come to Maui.

Great Introduction to Maui
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

My wife and I had a debate over where to go for our 30th anniversary. She wanted Hawaii. My point was if I have to fly 8 hours (we came from Dallas) let’s go to Europe. Guess who one the debate. We took an online questionnaire to find out what island would be best for us. Given we were bringing 24 and 21 year old sons, Maui won out as the “active island”. And active it was.

Finding a place to stay was a bit overwhelming, so I used the travel agent I used for work and she recommended Kaanapali Alii. After reading the reviews, my only request was that we were in an updated condo. We could not have been happier. We landed and grabbed our rental car (a Tahoe) and headed to the condo. It was about a 50 minute drive from the airport. We stopped at Costco and grabbed enough food to cover most of our breakfasts, lunches and a few dinners for the week, as well as an ample supply of booze. Note, the Foodway in Lanai is great and has everything you need.

We checked in around 3:00. They take your car keys and bring all your belongings up. They packed up our Costco haul into plastic bins. The bellman showed us around the room. We were in room 164 and it was just awesome. It was two bedroom, two bath with a large living area, dining areas, Lania and great kitchen. We think I might have been recently updated as all of the appliances appeared brand new. You walk out on the Lanai and to the right you see the ocean, straight ahead the pool and to the left the mountains. The beach was the best on that side of Maui. You could see the islands off shore. The condo had all the utensils you need. We bought a couple of spices, but other than food, you don’t need to get anything (they even had coffee filters).

No, the resort doesn’t have a restaurant or bar, but you get over that pretty quickly, as you can buy everything for your room much cheaper and if you want to go out, you just walk down the beach on the sidewalk. Whalers village on the right, other resorts on the left. But, not having the restaurant/bars took us about a day to get used to. But, the pool is great, plenty of chairs. The grills work awesome. We did steaks one night and they came out great. They even have a spice garden if you want to use fresh spices.

The room was great, on the 6th floor. We never saw anyone on our wing and it felt like we were by ourselves. One thing to note is there is no smoking at this facility, not even e-cigs. I was going to bring cigars and glad I didn’t. My sons e=cig and they had to go to a place on the end of the beach to smoke. Not the end of the world, but something to know. They also want you to have shoes and shirts on when entering your building. Again, different from a lot of resorts, but keep the place classy.

The workout room is really good. 6 treadmills, 3 elipticals, a couple of stair climbers and 3 bikes, plus plenty of weights and exercise machines. We did not use the clay tennis courts, but they looked nice.

One of the keys to this resort is its concierge services. We had no idea what to do or not to do in Maui and every excursion is expensive (expect $150 - 200 a piece). They recommended we do the snorkeling tour on an eco friendly tour which takes you to Molokini and to see sea turtles. Each of the crew has their degree in marine biology or something similar which was cool. We went to the Drums of Maui Luau at the Hyatt, which was just awesome. Food and entertainment were great. The boys and I played golf at the attached golf course, the Kai course. It was a blast. But, they concierge told us most of what we wanted we could do on our own. So we went down the road to Hana and hiked through the bamboo forest and saw waterfalls all on our own. We also snorkeled on the Honolua bay and saw sea turtles for free. They just really hooked us up and saved a bunch of money.

Location of this resort is key. It is right in the middle between the hotels and on the best part of the beach.

Finally, the staff is so good. While it is not an “all inclusive” resort, we never lacked of anything. I highly recommend to families especially. My fondest memories will be sitting on the lanai playing cards with our boys watching the sunset and listening to the oceans. Aloha.
