Good location, nice property but small worn out room

Would not stay here again unless there are better rooms to be had. We saw 2 rooms in the Kauai Wing (southern building). We had a view of the Whaler next door and kept wishing we were staying there. The grounds are nice and they offer music and entertainment in the gardens each evening. It is very close to Black Rock and within walking distance to Whaler's Village. Our room was on 6th floor with a partial ocean view. The room was outdated and beat up. I would not stay here again unless rooms in other buildings are in better shape. Maybe we got the inferior room because we had a military rate.

Never been treated better! Very impressed!

We booked 2 rooms for 4 of us. Lisa Marie checked us in she was very nice and welcoming. We stayed in the Kauai building on the 3rd floor We had a beautiful view of the water. The rooms aren't super fancy but have everything you need. You won't want to spend much time inside anyway. The employees at this hotel treat visitors like family. I've never been treated better I was very impressed! Even the GM treats his employees like they treated us! He had great things to say about them. You can tell everyone truly enjoys their jobs. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept, tiki bar has great drinks, nice snack foods at the little hut next to that, making it very convenient to sit by the pool and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. We enjoyed the welcome breakfast it was very informative telling you about activities available and other helpful info along with a great free breakfast. The location of Kannapali Beach Hotel is perfect black rock is just walking distance down the beach where you can snorkel we seen lots of tropical fish and sea turtles. Whaler's Village is also just a walk away with shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the free entertainment at night in the courtyard my Husband was pulled up on stage to Hula. They had great shows. When leaving the goodbye lei ceremony was very nice. It wasn't just passing out lei's they want you to know the history and take the time to know each of you before leaving and thank you for coming and wish you well. I can't say enough good things about Kannapali Beach Hotel I would definitely return!

Maui vacation hotel

Kaanapali Hotel is at a great location on the west side of Maui. The beach is great, sunsets are outstanding ant there are an abundance of rainbows. Food is great on and off property. Get the package that includes the breakfast well worth the extra money. There are no bath tubes in rooms.

No elevator

Our travel agent found us this hotel and even after reading the reviews saying that they were out dated but still fine we went for it - as it was budget friendly. We paid for an ocean view which we got, can't beat a beautiful view of the ocean..however, I never even thought that hotels nowadays had NO elevators!!! My husband and I travelled with our baby which is a trek in itself lol, but when we find out there were no elevators and we had to lug our stroller up 2 flights of stairs many times a day! It was horrible! Not to mention, the beds and pillows were extremely uncomfortable!!! Would not recommend this to families with young kids! Next time we go to Maui we will pay for quality and go with Westin or Marriott! Because we know they will have comfortable beds and elevators! The hotel staff were friendly, just can't give a higher rating for the lack of elevator and beds!
