    Everything was excellent! People from the hotel were very good. Only thing was there is no WIFI service. The WIFI we paid for did work on the odd day but even then signal was very weak. There is no room service but can get food downstairs at the restaurant or the TIKI Bar and Grill. TIKI Bar was awesome...got to know Tom and Dan, among others. Cheaper to have breakfast at Lahaina. Pic added is taken from our 6th floor room.

    This was our third stay at KBH & we continue to love it for its old fashioned charm & genuine Hawaiian aloha spirit. Every single staff member we came in contact with was warm & friendly. Our spacious ocean front room & lanai were perfect for relaxing. The beautiful grounds & primo beach location cannot be beat. Nightly entertainment was enjoyable & Sunday brunches were delightful. We have stayed at other resorts & checked out more resorts & condos in Maui. KBH is the best & we will definitely stay there again.

    My wife and I discovered the KBH back in 2004 and have returned each and every year with the exception of 2012 due to an unexpected medical emergency. We plan on going back in 2013. I cannot find the words to describe the exceptional service and hospitality we have always received at this resort. When we arrive at check in there has always been a number of staff in the lobby that recognise our faces and in response come right over and greet us both with big hugs and kisses.We have travelled to many places over the years where we have gone back to the same hotels and never saw any familiar faces from one year to the next. The majority of the their staff have 20 + years of service time. That in it self speaks volumes as to how the hotel cares for its employees and guests alike. Genuine hospitality in every aspect without any trace whatsoever of sensing scripted behavior. If you are seeking a "true" down to earth Hawaiian experience this is the place to call your home while vacationing. Sincerely Brenda & Ken R.

    This hotel has a great beach - we updated to a beach front room and it was worth it for the great view. It is a family oriented hotel, and has a small convenience store that has drinks, sandwiches and cheese and stuff, so you don't have to eat out at every meal. It was close to a mall, and fairly close to Lahaina - we had a great vacation! We were there during whale watching season - could see the whales breaching right in front of the hotel..... Did the road to Hana which is beautiful, but long! Note that some of the boat tours leave directly in front of the hotel which would be great if you don't want to drive.

        We went to Maui this time to attend a close friend to the families wedding. We stayed at the Kaanapalli Beach Club and it was fantastic. It had a kids club room for the kids with bowling alleys, craft area, air hockey table etc it also had a large pool with a kiddie pool with a waterslide. We found an awesome kids beach in Lahaina that has a rock wall far out in the water to break the waves so our little ones can play on the shore without the waves crashing on them. One of our favorite places to eat in Maui is a little Italian place called Antonios. The food was really freah and the staff are very friendly and hard workers. This was our son's first time to the ocean so it was was pretty cool to see how he reacted to the sand and water.

        What a perfect destination. We rented a Little Red Convertable and put on the miles. We explored every inch of the Island. Leaving our room at 4:00 am to watch the sun rise over Haeleakala, sample the pineapple wine in the vineyard, hike through the bamboo forest, dip in the seven sacred pools (as the tourist call it), tour the Aquarium, visit National Parks, shopping trips to local markets and Costco of course, Art Gallaries, coffee plantations .... and then .... a Luau in La'hanai, explore old lava flows, snorkelling with the turtles and sharks. Oh right, this was our Honeymoon so we also had beautiful walks on the beach, ate scrumptious foods, found a few mornings to laze about. Just for good measure we through in the Maui Marathon. This Island has something for everyone and we can't wait to go back for our 10 year Anniversary and do it all (almost all) again! Helpful hints .. drink plenty of water, eat as much fruit and sea food as your tummy will allow .. and a few Mai Tai .. mmmm good!

            This hotel is not new, and is a little dated, however, it is gunning for this as it is passionate about maintaining the cultural Hawaiian feel, and it is nice that nothing is shiny, white, clinical and new. The swimming pool is a nice size, but this didn't matter to us, as going to Hawaii to sit by the pool was the last thing on our minds! The hotel is situated perfectly, with a prime beach location and easy strolls to neighbouring restaurants and shops, (who wants to stay at their local eating every night -get up, explore)! The staff are excellent and very, very friendly, with a welcome breakfast, (at this welcome breakfast they explained some of the island's activities). They did try to sell a magic show over and over, but ignore this and just eat the buffet breakfast, whilst listening to their advice of local attractions. The buffet breakfast was expensive - $20 and we didn't pay this everyday. The restaurant is nice as it has little birds flying around trying to help you eat your food-kind of cute we thought, depending on your mindset. The room had a TV and decent working air conditioning. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was okay, ( we travelled the four islands, and believe me, the more expensive hotels in O'ahu were not as nice as this hotel), but like I mentioned before, it was a no frills room, and slightly dated. I loved all of the old Hawaiian family photos everywhere and liked the cultural, native Hawaiian feel to it. Every day, local traders would set up in the foyer selling their jewellery or wood carved statues.....in hindsight, we wouldn't have waited until O'ahu and Big Island to buy these, we wished we'd have bought the Hawaiian souvenirs here as they were cheaper and better produced. The nicest thing about this hotel is that when you check out, they give you your very own Kakui nut Leis! I'd defo stay again.

                We return over and over for their extensive gardens, generous beach frontage (close to Black Rock for great snorkling), free Hawaiian entertainment nightly, reasonably-priced Tiki Terrace Restaurant on premises for dining, economically-priced Tiki Grill for quick meals, and more. On our 4th visit we saw how well they care for guests in emergencies. In preparation for Hurricane Iselle, they quietly and efficiently prepped three "safe rooms" per floor by boarding up balconies, placing drinking water, fans and tables for food and beverages in hallways. During a brief 3-hour area black-out housekeeping visited every guest to distribute glow sticks. They made it into a carefree adventure! I also respect their commitment to their employees during economic downturns: they reassign duties to keep personnel employed and busy. Just LOVE their island spirit which is reflected in all they do. Mahalo KBH!

                Stayed for a weekend in May 2014. What a lovely place. It's true that the furniture could use a little updating and the pool is not a super pool like some of the chain resorts on Ka'anapali. However, it has so many other amenities. It is a celebration of their Hawaiian culture. The staff is very caring and attentive. They all weare aloha wear. The property is graceful and beautiful . They have hula lessons and Hawaiian crafts. We saw many Hawaiian people staying there which was nice. Try this place for a real local experience. The beach is on a good spot here.

Location is good, amenities are non-existent. Luckily my teenagers were able to "pool hop" and enjoy the amenities of the much nicer resorts @ Ka'anapali. Very, Very disappointing stay. I would never stay there again!

                    The Kaanapali hotel is just beautiful and the atmosphere is truly warm and welcoming and Hawaiian. The website doesn't do this hotel justice...it really is much prettier than you imagine from looking at the site. Amazing beach, nice bar and restaurant area and the food is wonderful (The Lava Flow cocktail is outstanding). It really does show you a slice of Hawaiian culture without at all being cheesy. Rooms are beautifully decorated and enormous even for the cheaper rates. The people who work there are the best. The on-site salon was also excellent. Overall absolutely excellent.
