We stayed here at the Alii in Unit 153, a two bedroom + Den unit. This put us in building one, closest to the ocean walkway, which gave us a fantastic view from the fifth floor. We had an ocean view from the dining room, living room, and from both bedrooms. The Westin is right next door, and our unit...

As an Aussie, this place was expensive as a place to stay. As a play to stay in Mauii, it was not and it was worth it. I would stay here many times again with my family. First thing to know is that a 1 bedroom apartment here had a full kitchen, lounge, dining, and a den - which really...

We were pleasantly surprised by the value of such a large condo right on the Ka'anapali Beach. We had two master bedrooms, full size kitchen, living room, dining room, and there was plenty of room to sprawl out. Views were amazing. There are two pools, one for adults and one that allows keikis, and a jacuzzi. There is no bar,...

Property is in a very good location on Kaanapali Beach, with one of the best beachfronts in this area. Close to Whaler's Village and some good restaurants. Pool was nice and grounds well maintained. The beds and bedding would get only 2*. Old and not very comfortable. TV in bedroom was old 90's model which only received limited cable with...

Customer Service: Flew into Maui early morning knowing check in would not happen at least until early afternoon at the very soonest, and that was fine. Picked up some groceries, and headed to property at 12:30 pm. Young man at desk said we were a bit early, that they owners had just left, and housekeeping " is in your room...

If you're looking for a top Kaanapali hotel experience with the roominess of a well appointed condo, this is the place for you. Our 3 day stay followed a Hawaiian cruse ship experience. We were appreciative of the units comfort. One large bedroom, two updated bathrooms, modern kitchen with breakfast nook and comfy family room with a large tv. The...

KA is a great, beautiful resort, right on the beach, courteous staff, a 5 star vacation resort. Our condo, #254, left a bit to be desired for a resort of this caliber. It needs a serious updating for lighting, mbr bed and living area furniture......all are old and quite uncomfortable to sleep/sit in. 2 stars for the condo, 5 for...

Yes, we love it, but all travelers should know that the pool area and the number of lounge chairs are not adequate for the number of guests in busy months. (In October, there was no problem, but the concierge told us that it can be mayhem in the summer.) There are four buildings with 11 floors each and the pool...

Kaanapali Alii was a bit of a disappointment for us. Pros: The grounds are beautiful. The staff (everyone except the front office) are fabulous and friendly. The condos (we saw two because we had to move due to noise) were very nice— roomy and decorated nicely. The staff at the pool was terrific. Super friendly, helpful and provided some great...

Spent 6 wonderful nights at Kaanapali Alii and cannot say enough good things about the unit we were in. On the top floor of this complex, floor 11. Views of ocean and mountains were breathtaking. The condo itself was decorated to perfection. Owners did a wonderful job of providing everything we needed for comfort. Condo was large, 1500 sq. ft....
