Our third time at the kaanapali beach hotel. No other place we would rather stay. It is so great to interact with other travelers and our wonderful social spot the Tiki bar with the best bartenders Chantel and Dale. Greeted with a big hug from Chantel.

Great place to stay. The beach is great. Better before 2p.m. starts to get a little rough. The hotels in Kaanapali are very nice. The most Hawaiian hotel is the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. More basic, but very clean and friendly. Only steps to the beach.

The beach runs north-south on the west coast, north of Lahaina. Many major resorts are here side by side on the south end of the beach, including Sheraton, Westin, Marriott, Hyatt Residence Club & Hyatt Regency, as well as a sprinkling of others.We were guests of owners at Hyatt Residence Club, open 2 years now and a REALLY nice resort....

Ka'anapali beach is beautiful, like most beaches in Maui. While visiting we tried to checkout a new beach everyday. Ka'anapali beach was worth the visit but not so mind blowing that we wanted to go back. The morning we were there we did happen to see dolphins, whales and sea turtles all within the span of half an hour -... More

We really enjoyed this beach - the water was warm and the sand wasn't too rough like some of the other Maui beaches. Really enjoyed 2 days on this beach. Better than the WESTIN pool.

I've lived on the Hawaiian Islands for a total of 10 years. That's a lot of sunsets and as long as there are no clouds this is The Beach to see your best sunset on Maui. It's easily accessible for families, great to swim with no rocks although gets too deep for small children quickly without floaties. This is not... More
