We loved our stay at Napili Kai and are already talking about coming back. What a delight -- they get the details right here and operate with a very high level of thoughtfulness and hospitality without being pretentious. There is some variety in the different buildings at Napili Kai as far as proximity to the beach and how recently the...

Went to Happy Hour at the sea house Restaurant in the Napili Kai Beach Resort. The ambiance is fantastic. We sat at the bar. Windows behind the bar were open adding a fabulous view of Napili Bay. The adult beverages and pupus were moderately priced. I will be going back. Our server, Darlene was informative and enjoyable. I will return.

This is what Maui should be all the time. Not crowded like Lahaina. Friendly people, oceanview rooms. What more do you want? This is all you need. Only issue is parking is tight . I feel like this is what Maui was like in the 1950s. If you truly want to relax, this is the place. Not the hustle and...

This was our first time to Napili Bay, we've stayed in Kihei and Kaanapali previously. This resort was so lovely, we had a view of the pool and partial ocean. There is a mini pitch and putt golf course, fitness centre, the beach is steps away for great snorkelling. We walked on the coastal trail many times in the morning,...

We booked our stay through Donna Bender of MauiCalls. Our schedule freed up and my wife and I wanted to run away to Maui in February (without a place booked). Donna Bender jumped on our call for help and found us some wonderful options. She was responsive and polite--she did point out that it was winter in the rest of...

We stayed at the Napili Kai Beach Resort thirty years ago and enjoyed it. We just returned from our second visit to the resort. It was a fantastic stay. We were in a studio Ocean Front room in the Puna 2 building. It was a very comfortable room with a small kitchen. The best part was the balcony with a...

I had high expectations for Napili Kai after reading reviews, and the resort exceeded them all. The location is beautiful and the resort has a wonderful, relaxed feel. We saw with turtles in the cove by the resort, explored the most amazing tide pools, played put put golf, and enjoyed wonderful meals at the Sea House Restaurant. I can't wait...

I just returned from a week at Napili Kai with my husband and two sons, 6 and 7. I mostly hate resorts; they're cheesy at the low end and obnoxious at the high end. Napili Kai manages to feel both elegant and humble, classy and comfortable. Staff and guests alike are down-to-earth, friendly, unpretentious. It was a nice vibe for...

My husband and I came here for 3 nights on our trip to Hawaii upon the suggestion of local friends, and we were extremely happy! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are generously sized, and ours included a full refrigerator and breakfast area. There are pools and beach right at your doorstep. At the hotel is a delicious...

We booked our stay through Donna Bender of MauiCalls. Donna did a great job of getting us a second floor corner one bedroom, two bath condo in Puna Point building which was just magnificent. The view from our lanai was spectacular. Napili Kai Beach Resort is not your glitzy resort like Hyatt or Westin. If that is what you want...
