Three generations: perfect low key vacation for baby
Reviewed 4 days ago

2 Grandparents, 2 parents, and one almost year-old baby stayed for ten days in the Ohana suite. This is the largest suite in the property: two bedrooms, two bathrooms, well-stocked full kitchen, large living room. We oldsters stayed in the large master bedroom which had a shower only, while the new family stayed in the room with walkin closet just the right size for the crib, and the bathroom with a tub.

The room is on the second floor and overlooks the putting green, so is called garden view. You pay for the size, not the view. It was more cost effective for us to have the one suite rather than two separate rooms, which gave us the very large living area: over 1900 square feet. Still, because of location it was not the most expensive room on the property. However, I was very glad that we got two free nights for that length of time.

The location within the resort has also been perfect for us (except for the view): the parking lot is steps from our door, and has not been full even one day, for easy access with groceries and carrying baby. The spots are small, but there have always been spots. It is quiet because we are above the shop and have neighbors only on one side. And it is easy to get to the kiddie pool, which is adjacent to the main pool.

The property provided us not only with the crib, but also with high chair and diaper pail, all free of charge. The balcony was perfect for an almost toddler, because standing on tiptoe he could just peer across the edge, and it was topped with a glass fence, so no danger of falling.

Our only complaint was that the bottom cushions never stayed on the loveseats and couches. They all opened into beds we didn’t need, and the cushions kept scooting forward and falling off any time we sat on them. Owners take note: they need velcro!

The service was excellent. The cleaning crew seemed to come by every time the baby was napping, so they just kept coming back every couple of hours until they found a time he was awake.

Unlike other reviews that complained about the beach towels, we found them generous, offering us extras and swapping out the towels multiple times per day, every time one got wet.

We ate many meals at the somewhat pricey Sea House restaurant, but the food was always good, kids eat free, and we did takeout from them as well. The convenience was great, becuase our little one hated being strapped into the rental carseat.

There are free daily activities. We particularly enjoyed making leis here. We ended up with five dendrobium orchid leis. We also had fun at the slack key concert, and the mini reef fish and lei lectures.

We are very experienced snorkelers, so take our comments here in that spirit: we saw turtles, reef sharks, and octopus, but folks, this is not the Great Barrier Reef. The coral is virtually nonexistant, and the density of fish not very great. But for people who don’t snorkel much, it seemed to be an ecstatic experince.

Alas, it rained and had high winds every day we were here. Nevertheless, we managed to get out on the beach between the raindrops, and at this time of year (midApril), the little bay was peaceful. My snorkel was never washed over by waves.

Great out-of-the-way place.

Celebrated our anniversary and had a studio ocean front room for nine nights. I have attached some photos. It had a kitchenette and was great to fix many of our meals. There was a farmer’s market nearby to get some provisions, with a grocery store down the road for anything else we needed. The room was clean with a nice view of the ocean. We could look the other direction and see the West Maui Mountains from our private lanai. The staff was very nice and helpful. The Sea House Restaurant on the property is great. Expect that most restaurants in Maui are expensive so be selective and check pricing and reviews. Renting a car is necessary if you want to do anything.

Super relaxing, laid back and beautiful

Maui is new to us so we booked a package from Costco.
It was a great decision.
Our room was full of amenities. Huge tiled shower, twin sinks, spacious. Semi-private Linai overlooking the ocean, the pool and putting green. We also were treated to a FULL kitchen. Microwave, oven, stove top, dishwasher and a full size, side by side fridge/freezer.
The staff was very responsive with a few minor issues we encountered (fixed the toilet seat in under an hour). And friendly!
True spirit of Aloha.
We enjoyed the free mai tie happy hour mid-week. I want to give a shout out to Eddie our bartender. He was great!
The grounds are perfectly manicured with plenty of signage to help us get around. They even have gas fired BBG grills if you want to eat in.
To maximize the sunset views, you need to know, some of the buildings are terraced so be prepared to do some steps or ramps to get down to one of the 4 pools and picturesque beach. The main pool has free rentals of towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, and golf putters. No boredom here!
By the way, the sunsets were epic.
Probably the only drawback was the time of the year for the beach. Winter takes a toll on the amount of sand so the drop off in the water was deeper than the summer time. We did not feel good about snorkeling in the water. Summer time fills the beach and bay with sand for that super beach experience. Maybe next time!
Aloha and Mahalo Nei Loa

Nice Property, Remote Location
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The Napili Kai Resort has a lot going for it. A big plus was the free parking and lack of resort fees. Our studio room was large and well furnished with plenty of closet and drawer space, a balcony and a kitchenette. The grounds are nicely tended and include a putting green. The beach behind the resort is very nice, but be aware that the waves there can be treacherous. A man had drowned the day before we checked in after ignoring the red the warning flag. In February and November, the "owners" gather at the resort, and while they were very pleasant, we sometimes felt like intruders. If you want a nice, quiet resort in a somewhat remote location, this resort would be a good choice for you.
