- What's Included
This was the first time my family has vacationed in Hawaii. We travel a lot! I'd been asking my husband for 12 years for this to be our vacation destination and for my 40th birthday I got my wish! Our family isn't "resort friendly". We don't enjoy crowds, or noise, or lots of other tourists invading our space. We don't like huge elaborate pools that steal your attention. We don't like pricey room service food or "just charge it to my room" kind of restaurants. We like space! We like full kitchens!! We would rather a 2bedroom 2 bath comfortable layout than a hotel room anyday!!! If you are like us then come stay here!!!Beautiful well maintained grounds. We enjoyed the multiple walking paths, lit my fire torches by night, we enjoyed the beautiful beach right out side our condo. We enjoyed making our own breakfast and eating on the lanai with a view of the ocean. We enjoyed the affordable rentals beach shack, the multiple pools, and our keep parked right outside so we can run to dinner or explore a waterfall in a snap!! Parking is FREE and the resort fee is well worth the $15 a day!!! If you rent VRBO's if you prefer space and comfort to commercialized large resorts. This is your spot!! Btw we stayed in Banyan Building condo 240. I do recommend the second story condos as the lanais are much larger!! Even though we booked through Costco I called the sort to ensure we were in a modern renovated unit.
This is my fourth time staying at MKV. My wife and I have been up and down the Ka annapali beach checking the various resorts. Most are great, but for us too big, noisy and lots of kid screams echoing off the courtyard walls of the giant resorts. With MKV the grounds are manicured beautifully, Very little noise, the units are quite, clean with full kitchen, large living room. You do not hear people in the other rooms. The main tower is our favorite of the five buildings to stay in, all units are privately owned. You can rent direct from the owner or through Aston. This complex looks out onto a beautiful pool and a small restaurant the CastAway (Great Food). If you get one of the more expensive rooms on the main tower facing the ocean it is worth it. You wake up to a Gorgeous View overlooking the Best beach in the world. Great snorkeling, beautiful reef with lots of colorful fish and turtles straight out between MKV and the Beach Club. This so far is our best Resort for our reasons, we are in late 50's, our kids are grown, we like it quiet, a great place to bring family. Early morn coffee, drinks at the pool in the afternoon. The staff here are very attentive you have but ask. The grounds and buildings are well kept. You see grounds and building maintenance all the time very friendly and busy. Good Job MKV
The on site restaurant was very poor, I am not including that in this review, I'll review them separately. We stayed in an ocean side studio, reserved through Costco. Our room was excellent. Great location, near beach and main pool. Another room in our group was a 1 bedroom w/ 2 queen beds in the tower. It was perfect for the family of 4, and a quick walk down to the pool and beach. Unfortunately the third room in our group is what lost the 5th star. It was a ocean side one bedroom in the Emerald building. It wasn't really one bedroom at all, it was a studio with a loft. The loft had steep steps that weren't great for the age of guests staying there, and the furnishings were very run down (ratty old carpeting).The main pool was fantastic, with bridge and small waterfall. There was a shallow area for small children. You can buy drinks from the bar and have there, but they say no alcohol of your own. The beach was great and very swim able. The beach walk goes right through the property and makes for a great morning activities. There is a little rental shack on the property where you can get chairs, snorkeling gear, sunscreen and more.The Royal Lahaina, next door has an ice cream shop, great evening stroll - not far at all.There is a very nice grocery store just 2 lights north, better than Safeway. May family would definitely come back and hope we get the better rooms.
The "Villas" are in a central location of the large Kaanapali Beach. We had a studio condo with an ocean view. We were in the "tower' on the fifth of six floors. Being that high up and on the south side gave us spectacular sunsets every night.The furnishings were very new, clean and in excellent condition. Daily maid service was great. The complex is larger than the photos would lead you to believe. Some of the garden view rooms are a stones throw from Highway 30. Staff was absolutely outstanding! Always smiling and very helpful. There is a small store on site but only has a minimal number of things you might need. Costco and Wal Mart are very near the airport, so we stocked up there. Great snorkeling at Black Rock after a 15 minute walk. Whaler's Village is walkable, but a free trolley comes by hourly and operates until 10 PM. We used taxis when the trolley schedule didn't fit our dinner plans and ran us $6 to $10. Parking is tough.
We took a last minute trip to Maui over Labor Day weekend. We thought about trying some of the other resorts e.g. Westin or Hyatt, since we were interested in their facilities and amenities. But value, price, & prior experience swayed us to go back to Kaanapali Villas. So glad we did. We had a full kitchrn, 1 bdrm, & partial ocean view. The receptionist allowed me to check out several rooms prior to picking our room. Having 2 small kids, we were picky on space & layout. Overall, we had a wonderful time. We appreciated the staffs' aloha spirit, the laid back vibe, nice facilities, fewer crowds, & close proximity to a swimmable beach. We weren't impressed with the on-site restaurant during our last visit, so we skipped it this time.
