I love Napili Kai and have been staying here for many years. But, all things change and sometimes not for the good. So here is what they don't tell you. Parking is horrible. The resort is located next to a public access beach and locals and other tourists crowd the Napii parking lots leaving no room for resorts guests. The...

Stayed there 3 nights with my son for spring break. The grounds are meticulously kept. The resort has an old-style look and feel about it - giving quite a different experience compared to the larger newer Kaanapali resorts. Clientele here is a bit older than at other resorts but it's fine for kids too. It's situated right on the beach...

This was our third visit to the Napili Kai. The best thing about this resort is that it is not a high-rise mega resort. It has a nice, low key vibe. None of the buildings are more than two stories. The rest of the places on Napili Bay are older two story condos. Not a high-rise in sight! We had...

The rooms are lovely and each have a spacious outdoor patio. Inside, the rooms are updated with upscale touches. The cabinet doors all have the soundless latch feature. The bed has 5 pillows and 2 convertible sofabeds. The kitchen area has a fridge, sink, microwave and coffeemaker. I did not see a stove. If that is important to you, try...

My husband and I stayed at this lovely resort for 4 days/3 nights and wish we had stayed longer. Such a great place! Having a kitchen made it feel like you're living there in some respects rather than visiting. Just not having to rush and get ready for breakfast is nice. We'd have breakfast and lunch on the lanai over...

Napili is so nice the rooms are big enough to fit the whole family. The pool is a tad bit cold but that's nice on a hot day. You did't hear this from me but they keep secret stash of POG juice behind the counter in the Lobby. And, the chairs in the room fold out into beds. POG juice...

As I walked into the resort I felt like I was in the Elvis movie, Blue Hawaii. The sprawling, low key resort is a throwback to the 60s. My parents would call it understated chic. My niece would call it a "hipster" vibe, I said it is old school, traditional Hawaiian style. We stayed 3 nights in a 1 bedroom...

The resort takes you back in time. The buildings do not have the modern, sterilized look that caters to large conventions. Here you will find a relaxing atmosphere where you can absorb the surroundings. The tropical gardens of orchids and hibiscus are well manicured and grow between tall palm trees throughout the property. A sandy beach with a light surf...

Back from another great vacation at the Napili Kai resort. This is not a whiz bang experience, rather it it a quiet place to enjoy time with family and friends. The rooms are spacious with a lanai and well equipped kitchens. There is a restaurant on site that serves all day. Our room had an ocean view. It was not...

This is a fabulous resort . No doubt! The bays on either side of the resort are the most beautiful in the world. The views are unbelievably beautiful. However in order to give it a 5 star rating it desperately needs more accessibility for folks who have trouble going up and down stairs. It needs elevators!!! And ramps. There are...
