The Hotel facility is a bit old, but it is very well maintained. I had a large spacious room with balcony and garden view. In general, the hotel offers a lot of entertainment from the free Hawaii language classes or the Hula dance course, as well as evening shows at the Tiki Bar. The direct beach to a really nice...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 October 2016

I've stayed here several times over the years and have been a frequenter of the Tiki Bar, which after many of sampling, have decided that they do have some of the best man tai's on island. But that's for another review. This hotel is older and definitely more "cost effective" but it offers a different energy and experience than any...

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at this hotel and we couldn't have been happier. I researched for months every resort/hotel on Kaanapoli Beach and decided to book at this authentic Hawaiian hotel. (Thank you Tripadviser!) Everyone working there from the time we stepped out of our car to the leaving ceremony makes you feel welcome and treats you...

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, it is really on the Kaanapali beach so if location is important to you and willing to pay for it, this is a great place for you. It is also walking distance from the Whalers Village, very convenient for shopping of eating out. We also had great experience with the staff of the...

I'm currently staying at the hotel in room 460 of the Kawai wing and I'm slowly being driven insane so I felt I should leave a review. We arrived from the east coast the night prior and so we went to bed around 10pm local time due to jet lag. My wife falls asleep very easily, I unfortunately hear noises...

The hotel is actually on Kaanapali Beach so it's only 2 minute away from the beach. It has a large courtyard so there is a lot of green for kids to run around. The restaurant serves good food with live show at a reasonable price. The free breakfast with introduction to activities on the island was a little surprise, but...

I haven't stayed at this hotel yet my stay is not until January, however I decided to write a review because the room reservations department helped me tremendously with my booking. Costco completely messed up my itinerary and the kaanapali beach hotel took the problem straight on and handled it themselves. The Manager went through all of the inventory to...

The hotel was older. Maybe 35 years. The staff was friendly enough. We were guided to the time share salesman when we arrived which I did not appreciate. The beech was small. The bar did not really face the beech. The room was musty when we checked in but they brought us a air freshener. The view over the parking...

1) Staff is highly demotivated. You feel it the moment you walk-in, no one smiles! 2) The rooms are old, the buildings ancient, the bath rooms tiny, the shower/basin/floor unattractive, the pool is poor, I can keep going on 3) The food at the breakfast restaurant- strictly average 4) We were given wrong keys when we checked in, room wouldn't...
