    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 just got back from our visit in Maui, we stayed at KBH and loved it. I was initially apprehensive as we don't normally stay in a "hotel" setting while visiting the island. The staff is great everybody from the front desk to the beach hut are so friendly and incredibly accommodating. They really go that extra mile to make your visit great. Advice: I would upgrade to the breakfast package while booking as the breakfast buffet is $25 pp. Although it is great, it can get pretty pricey. Lots of fresh fruit! Go to the beach hut in the am, early and have your cabana set up, they'll put your name on it and and keep it reserved. Then you can go to the beach whenever and have a great spot waiting for you. If you have rude/loud neighbors don't fret, just tell the staff and they'll move you immediately they want you as comfortable as possible. You may even get an upgrade ; ) The 2 dollars extra a day for valet is so so worth it! The Tiki Bar makes the strongest Mai Tai's ever so if that's not your thing be careful. If it is, lucky for you! Thank you Kaanapali Beach Hotel for an incredible visit. We will no doubt be back!

              I decided to provide feed back even though I did a review back in 2012 on this hotel. We stay at this hotel during whale season for the last several years. We decided to visit and try an ocean front view room during this summer for 4 nights. The room was in the Kauai wing on the 3rd floor. It was about 300ft from the ocean with an excellent ocean view. This close of a view is hard to find on Maui. The room is a little dated and could use some sprucing up though. It was clean, comes with a refrigerator, safe and is comfortable for two. The pool is not a big pool like the 4 and 5 star resorts here. Once you stay here you will find they pride themselves on the Hawaiian culture the staff bring to work each day. The staff is one of the best of all of the resorts we have stayed at over the years. Guess that's why we make it a yearly stop. The food both at the breakfast buffet and dinner are good. We do spend most of our time dining throughout the entire surrounding area. Ocean access is great here! Access to black rock for snorkeling is a short walk to the Sheraton hotel beach a few minute walk away. If you like swimming you can swim to black rock right off of this hotel's beach. Overall not much has changed regarding the hotel over the last few years and that really is a good thing. Whaler village is a short walk away. The dinner, sunset cruse, and snorkel catamaran charters are right off of the beach within a short walking distance. (Some right off of this beach front). Sunset views off of this beach are great! Parking here self park or valet and they have enough parking. (Room key required for both access and exit required when you self park). Quite honestly after this stay we will also spend 3 nights at the Westin Kaannapali Resort since we like Maui so much and wish to check out a resort we have not stayed at.

              This is a lovely hotel just far enough away from the crowds on Ka'anapali beach to allow for a peaceful stay. This is an older property but it only shows in the hallways and in the size of the bathrooms. The rooms are nicely decorated with all of the modern amenities you could want. What stands out here are the beautiful grounds. They are immaculate and there is enough space so you never feel crowded. The staff is professional, efficient, and mostly invisible(this is a compliment) unless you need them.

Found it amusing that there is an additional daily charge to use the room safe. Location is quite good but definitely need a car to get around, as is the norm for Maui. Would look else where if I return to Maui.

The second time was for our 30th wedding anniversary.. What a special surprise to find champagne and flutes waiting for us as we arrived. Free buffet breakfast the first morning is a treat. The location can not be beat, staff very friendly and free hula shows nightly. Can't wait to return!
