Fabulous Apartments with everything for the perfect Tropical Getaway

A peaceful oasis on the most stunningly beautiful beach. Perfectly situated to watch the amazing sunsets. I was delighted with my apartment. Spacious, full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, extra large bed, wrap around balcony with loungers and outdoor furniture, a view of the volcano and the morning sun on one side, the garden and sea view the other. On arrival there was water in the fridge and fresh pineapple, beautifully presented, ready to eat.The lobby operates 24/7, check in and checkout was smooth and hassle free. The staff certainly made you feel at home and were incredibly helpful with huge welcoming smiles. They are currently rebuilding the lobby so have a temporary one in the basement but I didn't experience any noise from the construction. There is an in house spa on the lower level. Seemed to me like massage was a specialty, the fragrance of lots of essential oils around. I didn't get the opportunity to try them out as I was attending an event during their opening hours. At the beachfront is a lovely swimming pool and a spa pool with plenty of loungers to sit and contemplate the ocean. There are chairs and towels available for the beach as well. Each tower also has an oceanfront barbecue area for guests to use that were well used during my stay. There is a restful space between the two towers with a beautiful garden and koi pond. Wander over the bridge and out to the ocean walk to one of the best restaurants next door Hula Grill or Lelani's close by. You are now at the ocean entrance to The Whalers Village. An 60 store boutique shopping mall with a small food court. There is also a Roy's Restaurant nearby which I would definitely recommend for a celebratory dinner. I went to one in Honolulu on the way home and though up there price wise the food was amazing and service excellent. I loved this property and was grateful to be able to escape to a more tranquil space after attending an event at The Westin close by.

Amazing trip!

It is a 5 star hotel!We really wasn't missing anythingThe service and the property is first class.I gave 4 stars because there is a continuous noisy constructions and no lobby to the hotel, and we were misled with this.But if you take the black rock view, 9-10 floor and above you should be ok.I'm sure that when they will finish the constitutions it will be awesome.

We came for a week using our friends condo. We had stayed at the Westin last time. I was leary of the construction I read about, but it really wasn't an issue for us. We are in. Tower 1, room 216. We are in an upgraded studio... and for the two of us it is perfect. We can be on the beach in a minute and to a restaurant in 2 minutes. We went to costco upon arrival, and have been to safeway a couple of times. The condo has a cooler and the whaler provides free chairs at the beach. We enjoyed happy hours at Leilani's and the hula grill. The bathroom is spacious and the bed is comfy! The kitchen has everything you need! We were greeted by Nathan upon arrival. Our room was ready early!! He gladly brought our bags and groceries upstairs. He later gave us ice for our cooler. I highly suggest tipping him well!!! 😀 we've enjoyed walking the beach and the location of this establishment. We will be back!

Excellent Property and Super Staff!

We were impressed two years ago and were more so this time. While staying at the KBH next door two years ago, we visited the Whaler and asked to see a room to to assess for a family vacation, now scheduled for early next summer. Earlier this spring, we decided on an anniversary trip in September and found a studio at the Whaler that worked for us. The room was not updated and frankly could use one but was suitable for what we needed. The Whaler staff was so very courteous and attentive from the minute we drove up to the security kiosk at the property. Although undergoing some construction renovations of their common area lobby, they has easy workarounds and were so very helpful! We were treated like ohana throughout our stay. While there we viewed a property for our family vacation next summer and ended up booking it. I cannot say enough about the property and staff!

Love this lovely condo/hotel resort

We stopped here on a whirlwind tour of the islands but it was so amazingly elegant and homey all at the same time. Loved the Kaanapali area so much and can't wait to bring our family back with us to this amazing luxurious condo. We only had 1 issue upon check-in...we thought the room number they gave us was 2602 and it was 260. The only number we had was the toll free number for reservations; we called there to see what we had wrong and Brenda was very unhelpful, all she would have had to do was tell us what option we should pick when calling back. Pretty stressful moment. But! It was our anniversary and the resort sent up champagne and yummy pineapple. We felt appreciated.We will be back looking for a two bedroom two bath unit for at least a 10 - 14 night stay. Can't wait
