    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 decided to stay at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel for our honeymoon, and I couldn't have been happier! I did not want to stay at a place where there would be lots of partiers, nor did I want to stay somewhere where the amenities would be lacking. Now, you should know a few things upfront... it is not the fanciest, most modern hotel in the area, however if you care more about having a comfortable room in a friendly hotel, this is the place! The grounds are very well maintained, and beautiful to explore. Our ocean view was fantastic! Our back door had a view of the mountain, which wasn't too shabby, either! The bathroom was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. Every night they have Hawaiian themed entertainment, and it plays until 8:30 or 9:00, and can be loud, so if you like to go to bed early or have kids with early bedtimes, it's good to know this. The entertainment is very good, though, and we listened to it a few nights from the comfort of our balcony instead of going down to the pavilion area. Another reviewer commented on the abundance of the senior citizens here, and I agree that there were many, but it's not like they are rowdy (LOL) and I think goes to show that repeat visitors like the place! I would say that it's about 50% for the over 55 crowd, 40% couples under 55, and 10% families with kids. We upgraded to the Romance Package, and felt it was an excellent value for what we got! It included two massages (but we couldn't book them at the same time, as it was their low season, so only masseuse was on staff at a time), a picnic lunch packed in a picnic cooler bag we could keep, two nice, large beach towels, a dinner cruise, morning breakfast buffet, ocean view room, dinner for two (and they didn't upcharge us for extra things like salad, soup or dessert!), and champagne chilling in our room when we arrived. There was a mini-fridge in our room, which was handy so we could stock up on cold beverages or store leftovers. Every day they had local artists/crafters selling stuff in the lobby until about noon which was nice to be able to snag a few souvenirs for people at home. They have what I think is a travel agent desk in the lobby (Ohana Fun Center) who was able to set up snorkeling, a Road to Hana Tour, and a Haleakala Sunrise tour for us, in addition to the dinner cruise which was included in our package. You will need to be flexible with your bookings, as we had originally wanted to do certain things on certain days, but had to reconfigure based on availability. They have a welcome breakfast during one of your first two days there to explain all the things that are available, and there is a bit of sell to get you go to certain things (like the Lu'au and the magic show), but overall, good info and free breakfast :) They really rush past the free events available to you from the hotel (which is why I think it's a travel agent), so if we go back, I think we will try to take advantage of more of the freebies, such as lei making or a garden tour. On Mondays they have their own Lu'au. It was very nicely done, and the food was excellent. Supposedly there is a very well-known lu'au at the Royal Lahania, but it's more expensive and is usually sold out (so book early if you want that one.) We preferred to stay at the hotel because of the time difference from home, we would "hit a wall" around 7:00 pm each night and be incredibly tired. On the day we checked out, they had a very touching lei ceremony where they gave us each a kakui nit lei and explained that each time we returned to bring the lei and they would upgrade the lei with a white nut to represent how many times we've been there. I would love to go back! If I went again, I'd make sure to bring a more dressy swimsuit cover up (versus the big tee-shirt I usually use), a night light for the hotel room, fewer clothes, another pair of shorts, and hair conditioner (they supply a very nice smelling shampoo plus conditioner, but my mane needs a dedicated conditioner!)

                Ka'anapali Beach Hotel is located on an amazing stretch of sand, crystal clear water and great surf. The hotel itself is not plush or fancy and it is somewhat dated. But your basic needs are well taken care of. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. The bathroom was spotless and roomy with plenty of towels. We stayed in room 675 which is entered from an outside balcony. However there are rooms on the inside which makes the hotel less "motelish" if you are on the inside. I would definitely stay here again for the value and the location. I would specifically ask for a unit on the inside if available. That's just my personal preference. They owners may think about updating the pool and outdoor dining choices. The Tiki Bar staff was great as well as the other staff members.

                  We were pleasantly surprised! Whilst this resort is large, it was exceptionally clean and comfortable, although apparently we were upgraded to a courtyard room on the 3rd floor in the most renovated block. If I was booking again, I would definitely want a similar position. The beds were comfy but the TV viewing was ridiculous! The TV is placed inside a large wooden cabinet, but the doors do not open satisfactorily for viewing. Very strange. It would be better to do away completely with the cabinet. We weren't greeted warmlywhich was a surprise and upon leaving and checking out we complained about being asked to pay for the safe in our room, which was only a simple key and lock anyway. We have NEVER been asked to pay for the use of a safe and it should have been pointed out to us when we arrived. The bathroom is VERY small and dated, but plenty of towels and it was once again clean. No free water was provided which we prefer. We chose not to eat on site. There are some excellent cafes/restaurants within a few minutes easy walking and right on the beach. The beach is great and we swam and snorkelled with huge sea turtles in knee deep water. My husband loved the snorkelling around Black Rock, at the end of the beach. The pool isn't exciting, but large and clean. The surrounding garden and trees made for a relaxing ambience and it was great to maximise the natural shade.

                    We have always loved staying at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. It is the perfect place for a family vacation. We spent a week there with our children and grandchildren. The cultural activities are fantastic, and designed for the whole family. There is always something to do , from lei making to ukulele lessons to learning the hula. The grandchildren love it so much, they don't want to leave the hotel. There is a great childrens' program. They are given their Hawaiian names, and a passport to have stamped at different places in the hotel (shops, restaurants, etc.). At each location they say their Hawaiian name, and then they are given a gift. Every evening there is free entertainment. Great way to end your day. The rooms are spacious. The grounds are large and beautiful and the beach is right outside your door. The farewell ceremony is awesome and makes you feel that they really appreciate you staying there. The staff is warm and friendly. They call themselves the most Hawaiian hotel in Hawaii, and I believe it. Forget all those chain hotels, this is a perfect place to feel like you're in paradise! A special mahalo to Lance and Ku'uipo for making us feel so special. We can't wait to return again soon!
