    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!

            We stayed here for a week in September 2014. What a beautiful hotel set in beautiful mature lush grounds, we loved the fact that this actually felt like we were in Maui. We took a walk down the 'strip' and the other hotels could have been anywhere in the world, however at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel you actually feel like you are in Hawaii. Traditional paintings on the walls, lovely old furniture, comfortable rooms. And the gardens are so lush, peaceful, no fighting over deck chairs etc. I cannot wait to return one day! We didn't dine here, but we took advantage of cocktails at happy hour! Breakfast was a bit overpriced so we ate at nearby cafes instead.

            My wife and I had hustled around Oahu and the Big Island and wrapped up our vacation on Maui at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. It's sits among the big name hotels with a bigger lawn facing the ocean and is run and operated by local Hawaiians. This place was the perfect ending to our trip. The hotel is very welcoming, has a great breakfast buffet, pool, bar, and evening shows by their Hawaiian staff. We had planned to see the Road to Hana and Haleakala, but rather than fight traffic, we just stayed around the hotel and enjoyed ourselves with some whale watching from Lahaina, and snorkeling at the nearby cliff. Seeing all the fish, hearing the whales underwater and especially swimming with the sea turtles was the highlight of the whole trip. Finally, the Kaanapali Beach hotel sends you home with a most loving goodbye ceremony.

            I found this hotel to be similar to several other hotels in the general area. Like the other larger hotels, this property offers a "resort experience" and not a "condo" experience. When considering a trip to this area, look into both options to determine the best fit to suit your expectations. This is an older property, but I think the price fairly reflects the general condition. The rooms surround a large courtyard area with a restaurant, outdoor tiki bar, and outdoor stage used for entertainment. I had an upgraded room and the living space and closet were cramped. Wifi was spotty at best. The long beautiful beach is shared with other adjacent properties and is relatively the same in both directions for sunning and swimming.

            We got a really nice room on the second floor. There's no elevator, so it was a nice work out to climb the stairs. We had partial ocean view, the room was clean and the hotel had beach towels we could borrow. The only downside was the wifi connection. It was free, but I would rather have paid for it and have gotten something that actually worked - and I don't believe in paying for wifi in hotels in 2015!

            This is a great hotel. It's buildings and rooms are somewhat dated, since it was built in 1964, but it more than makes up for it with great attitude from the staff, and a park like common area and pool that you are free to pretty much make your own. The employees have been there an average of 18 years (according to a third party article I read) and it shows. They are very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone just seems to enjoy working there. The rooms have been updated, to a degree, but are immaculate, as is the rest of the resort. Our room had flat screen HD TV, with over 20 channels, as well as very fast and free wifi. The pool is never overly crowded, and there are always plenty of chairs around. The Tiki Grill, their take-out place, is right there, and has basic food (burgers, pizza, etc.) which is actually pretty good and not expensive considering it is a resort in Maui. Likewise, the Tiki Bar is also almost poolside, and serves great drinks, which are also reasonably priced, considering it's a pool side bar in Maui. We did not eat at the Tiki Restaurant. Not for any particular reason other than we chose to go into Lahaina (a town about 5 minutes away) or to a couple of beachfront restaurants at Whalers Village, the open air shopping plaza about 100 yards down the beach. The hotel does not put on airs. It is a basic hotel. There is no room service. The Tiki Grill closes at 9 PM, and once it closes your choices are limited to a small convenience store built into the front entrance of the hotel. Likewise, the hotel was built in 1964, so it is a low-rise hotel which surrounds a common area. I prefer this, and the common area has grass that looks like carpeting, which you can walk or even sun bathe on, and tons of trees and bushes laden with flowers that make the whole area smell like a flower store. If you prefer the hustle and bustle of a high rise hotel, with room service, multiple high end restaurants and/or bars, rooms outfitted in the latest style, etc., this place is not for you. But they do not claim to be. The only thing I cannot figure out is that they claim to be the "most Hawaiian hotel." I am not exactly sure what that means. They do have some minor activities, like lei making and hula lessons, but I am not sure that a few 20 minute classes makes them the most Hawaiian. The other hotels on the Kaanapali strip are located in Hawaii, so they are legitimately Hawaiian too, I guess. This was our second time there. I am not sure when we will be back to Maui,I think Hawaii and Oahu are next, but when we go, we will definitely stay here, without a doubt.
