The Alii is the best property on Kaanapali beach in Maui. The units have been all recently remodeled. The views and grounds and pool beautiful, quiet and romantic. Close by dining and shopping make it a perfect location. Every beach activity you can consider at your door step. This was my second time back to this property and it maintains...

We've been coming to Maui for 36 years and have stayed in many of the properties along Kaanapali Beach and the Alii is simply our favorite. We just returned from ten wonderful days with our two adult daughters. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is great, and the units are well maintaind and stocked with everything you could want for...

Very spacious and fully equipped apartment. Beachfron location was ideal and the beach was absolutely beautiful. Highly reccomended! There are some food choices within 5 minutes walk - Whaler's Village. Within 5 minutes drive, there is a small town with rows of restaurant, bars and shops. Absolutely loved our holiday here.

Just spent 7 nights at the Kaanapali Alii and it truly was perfect for our family and our needs. There are six of us, with 3 teenagers, and an almost teenager. The greeting was warm and friendly, and the bellman was fantastic in describing the facility and getting all of our belongings to our room (we had stopped at Costco...

We stayed in condo 1105, it was on the 10th floor, corner room. The ocean view was fantastic from the lanai and the living room windows. Our accommodations were beautiful and all of the staff were excellent. We booked our trip thru a travel agency and were happy with our stay. It was all first class, the ocean right out...

Loved staying here. The view from the rooms are beautiful! The staff is great and it is in walking distance of a lot of great restaurants and shopping. Good place to stay if you are a family, couples or just friends getting together.

I spect 9 nights at the hotel and the 2 bedroom 2 bath Ocean View suite is superb! There is a full kitchen so you can cook some of your own meals. Want to eat at home without cooking, there is a master chef that will cook your food for you on one of the many grills that are down...

We returned from a 10 day vacation at the beautiful Kaanapali Alii. From the moment we arrived, the staff was wonderful. We rented two, two bedroom oceanview units. 123 and 124 on the 9th floor. Both units were unbelievable. Updated appliances and furniture. The units were huge. We slept six in one unit. Could have easily slept 8. We grilled...

We started our stay at the Alii with a family BBG. Not only are there 8 large BBQ's but the Alii has a Grill Master. He is a chef who helped us with the preparation of our dinner. He BBQued the marinated chicken and cooked corn for a group of 20! It was amazing as the Alii guests were BBQing...

I can't say enough wonderful things about the Kaanapali Alii. Each condo is huge, with plenty of room for our group of six. The kitchen was well stocked and the washer dryer came in handy during our week stay (7/5-7/12). Beds were soft and the rooms were clean and well-maintained. The location is better than any other condo we saw,...
