    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!

            Could not be more positive about our stay at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. Wonderful staff....friendly and helpful at all times. Great oceanfront room lulled to sleep at night with the sound of surf on the beach. Service in the Tiki Terrace was great, as was the food. Entertainment every night, good drink prices at the Tiki Bar. Also can't say enough about the friendliness and knowledge of the people on the activities desk...hula lessons, lei making, history of the region etc. Thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in the Kaanapali area. It has beautiful gardens, lots of loungers in shade and sun, a wonderful beach and great snorkelling just along the beach at Black Rock

There is nightly entertainment and you can grab a casual bight at the Tiki Bar & Grill or eat at the restaurant. The BBQ pork ribs are hands down the best I've had.

            KBH bills itself as the most Hawaiian hotel. Do NOT believe it. I'm not detailing my complaints because it would read like a novel. I've traveled to Maui about a dozen times; and the one night I stayed at KBH was the worst. By far. Ever. Again,I have far too many complaints to list and detail; but just in case you're still inclined to stay here, I think you should know the following: The one positive was that the room was large and clean. I booked a nonsmoking room. Got to the room that had a lanai with instructions to only smoke outside, and a provided ash tray. I called the front desk and said I thought I'd mistakenly been given a smoking room. The operator said KBH didn't have any smoking rooms. (This is just one example of many obtuse or misleading responses I got from the staff while at KBH). The room smelled, and an ashtray was PROVIDED and there were INSTRUCTIONS for using only the lanai and that ashtray to smoke. After a confusing conversation in which she finally admitted that smoking was allowed outside, on that floor, of that building, I asked for another room. She offered me a "2nd floor walk up", which I declined. I haven't even mentioned the exhausting check in process. That, paired with this conversation, left me too exhausted to wait for a bellman to come get my bags (because guests aren't allowed to use the bellman's carts) and move to a 2nd floor room with no elevator. She also said the company I'd booked the room through had not designated that I wanted nonsmoking. Oh? It's someone else's fault I got an imaginary smoking room at KBH? See, now that I've started, my complaints will never end. On all the following levels, this was just wrong. All my documents clearly stated I booked a nonsmoking room. And hadn't she just said KBH didn't have smoking rooms? When I checked in, the clerk confirmed my nonsmoking room. She blamed the company I booked with, but guess what. I called KBH directly before booking and was told to book with the other company because KBH couldn't match their price. (Or apparently didn't want to. That was a first for me.) Oh, and since I didn't book directly through KBH, I wasn't entitled to the daily welcome breakfast, that's really daily because it's not available on Sundays, or maybe it is because the literature said it wasn't but the girl on the phone said it was, except that it had been cancelled that particular Sunday morning because the facility wasn't available. Oh, that's why all the spaces on the first level of the parking garage that I had paid extra for, were roped off. Because there was a special event, using the garage and the usual breakfast room, not available to me, and who knows how many other paying guests. Remember....I have not mentioned the vast majority of my complaints. As I write this, I'm reliving the horrible KBH experience and my blood pressure is starting to rise; so I must go now, and try to find my happy place. But the room was big and clean, and didn't smell TOO badly of smoke.

            Stayed here for 7 nights during may 2015 and loved everything about it. Booked a Garden View room which was on the second floor on the east side of the hotel grounds. Gardens were beautiful, lush green grass, well maintained garden beds clean pathways right through the garden and hotel. Hotel room was clean and spacious, bed was very comfortable. Room service was awesome. Hotel location was right on Kaanapali Beach which meant everyday either started or ended with a stroll along the beach. Its only a short stroll to Whalers Village for shopping and neighbouring hotels which included restaurants, bars and Starbucks. Overall my experience with the Kaanapali Beach Beach was everything i wanted out of my first trip to Maui, I will be definitely staying here again on my next trip to Maui.

              This hotel being older has great character! The staff are proud of the Hawaiian history and did all they could to ensure our stay was positive and memorable. The Passports for the children are great, teaching Hawaiian words and making exploring the hotel fun for the kids with lots of gifts for them. A fabulous location and beautiful views. We were excited to see a huge green sea turtle happily swimming right near the shore among all the tourists right near the hotel (at Black Rock) Thank you Kaanapali Beach Hotel (oh, we loved the Goodbye and gift of beautiful nut Lei on our departure)
