    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!

            If you are thinking of going to Hawaii, and you want an authentic experience, either before or after enjoying Waikiki, (which is good in its own way), consider spending some time at Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. My wife & I celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary (young 60yr olds) in Hawaii by spending 7 days in Waikiki, which we really enjoyed, and then we flew to Maui & had 6 days at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. Although the rooms seem at first sight to be a little dated, let me tell you that this place is amazing. The large grounds are magnificent & shady, the staff are excellent & accommodating & the access to the pool & beach are fantastic. It pays to spend a little bit more & get an 'Ocean View' room (preferably on the top floors), as you wake up each morning to magnificent views, which remain throughout the day. It is an easy couple of minutes walk to 'Whalers Village' which includes good restaurants & good shopping, however in saying this, the food at Ka'anapali Beach Hotel is also good & reasonably priced, but like us, you might feel like a change now & then. Can't recommend this place highly enough - would definitely consider returning.

            Stayed for a week in September 2014 as part of a two week trip to Hawaii and had a good experience. The location is good and the beachfront access is decent although we were a bit surprised to have to pay for sun loungers on the beach. The 'entertainment' in the evenings left a lot to be desired so we mostly chose to eat at the nearby restaurants and other hotels which had a bit more going on. Drinks from the bar were a little overpriced but not too bad. The welcome brief was a bit strange - the hotel is trying a bit too hard to be the 'most Hawaiian on Hawaii' but there was no timeshare sales pitch or anything like that which was a relief! The rooms are definitely in need of refurbishment but not too dreadful. We had a balcony overlooking the gardens which was nice and never had any issues getting a parking space (although having to pay for this was a bit irksome). The watersports facility on the beach front was good, we hired Stand Up Paddleboards which was good (managed to see a sea turtle) and also booked a surf lesson through them which was less ideal as the surf break is a good 10 minute walk from the hotel. We also booked a snorkelling trip to Molokini through the hotel reception which was very good although I think this may have been more luck than good judgement as the rep seemed just keen to take our money as soon as possible. Overall not a bad hotel but not somewhere where we will be rushing back to anytime soon!

            This hotel is at the cheaper end of the spectrum for this area. We found the rooms to be clean and serviceable, if a little dated and towards the back end of their refurbishment cycle. The rooms we chose were the cheapest available in the hotel, on the understanding that they face away from the beach and overlook neighbouring hotels. In practice, this was not an issue, as there was plenty of daylight available, and the space between hotels is well maintained and quiet. We had breakfast included in our package. The dining area consists of one rigid canopy adjoined by a permanent marquee. In the event of rainfall, water cascades between the two structures and staff push water out of collected pockets with broom handles. Birds are a permanent fixture inside the dining area, scavenging from any unattended plates and leaving droppings over the tired rattan furniture. Outside, rotten cladding is clearly visible to anyone who bothers to look up. Mock bamboo columns are held together with cable ties and dust is thick on some of the light fittings. The whole area needs refurbishment quite desperately. We found the staff very helpful, although we were a little frustrated at the maneuvering around breakfast, where you are invited to leave a 'tip' for service following a self-service buffet. It may be just a US thing that I didn't understand, but it did take a little of the shine off of the customer service generally. The grounds are kept immaculately. The food was passable. After 12 days as a guest, I learned to avoid the pastries (generally quite stale) and go for the fruit (always fresh) and pancakes / cinnamon toast, which were great. This combo got a wore a bit thin before long though. There is regular free entertainment available. The quality is modest, but, hey, it's free. There was plenty of chilled out reggae and some hula when I was there. All very child-friendly. The star of this hotel is the location, right between black rock and Whaler's Village. This easily compensates for any of the negatives above. I would stay there again, but maybe not eat.

            The pictures and reviews paint a pretty picture of the Kaanapali Beach Hotel so I was thrilled to book it for our 8 night stay in Maui. A mistake I will never forget. The price seems reasonable until all the separate charges and 13% tax are added in (charge for parking and safe use and more). Them boasting that they don't charge a resort fee is simply because NOONE could confuse this place with a resort. It is a MOTEL. and an old, dated one at that. There is only 1 pool which is open 9am-9 pm and PACKED with kids that whole time. No jacuzzi. My room smelled of mildew so badly it made me gag, soon discovered that 1 cause was actual mold in the bathroom (I will post pictures) and the other was air conditioning. So we were forced to turn the air conditioning off so that I could breath. I had coughing fits the night we stayed that kept me up half the night because of the smell. The other half of the night I was up due to the SUPER uncomfortable bed and the drunks/kids running up and down the outdoor walk way and slamming doors and yelling (the walk way is thin metal-like material so it is really loud). The housekeeping was polite in the morning when I asked for them to wait an hour, and Jenny at the front desk is their only saving grace in my opinion as she was super helpful and attentive while helping me get the hell out of my reservation so I could go somewhere else. What a nightmare. Also be warned that there is a floor of the hotel that smoking is allowed on the deck, so may want to watch for that if you have asthma, kids, or an aversion to smoke. I moved down the street to the Ashton Shores Condos and got a partial ocean view, 1 bedroom suite with separate sitting area, private lanai, full kitchen, washer and drier...and it was $400 less than my original reservation with this nightmare. It needs to be closed and renovated or just plain gutted. It's a waste of a nice location. In my opinion (incase you didn't get it) RUN, DON'T WALK, to pretty much any other property in the area.

It was located on the beach next to the Sheraton and the " black rock " famous for snorkeling and diving. They even gave us a room to shower in before we left so we could enjoy the area after our 11 am check out.
