This is a very friendly hotel. Lots of foot traffic so ask for a room on 2nd or 3rd floor. Definitely the least luxurious hotel along Kaanapali Beach, but also probably the least expensive. Loved the lei making activity. Evening entertainment is a bit hokey.

The hotel and staff made our trip one of the finest vacation experiences my wife and I have ever had. The grounds were beautiful, the Sunday brunch was to die for and the tiki bar was a lot of fun. We are planning on returning again as soon as possible.

She spent a great deal of time with our party getting things arranged. The hotel has activities for all ages. The breakfast at the hotel was $25 a person and was buffet. There...

I recently took my mother on her dream trip to Hawaii. She and I enjoyed ourselves immensely at Ka'anapali Beach Resort Hotel. The overall feeling at this resort is family and "you matter". If you are looking for fancy and perfectly appointed, no need to stay. If you want comfort, welcome or true Aloha Spirit, do stay and come back!

Just returned from our third stay at this wonderful hotel and we love it more every time. Everyone is SO friendly and welcome you with true Aloha Spirit. Our room was beautiful and we not only had a view of the courtyard and ocean, but from the front door we could see the sunrise over the mountains. Breathtaking! Already planning...

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. The hotel really promotes Hawaiian traditions and employs mostly Hawaiians which made for such a richer cultural experience than we could get at any other hotel. Their tradition of giving each guest a kukuhi nut necklace at the end of their stay (or adding a white nut for each...

For an older this is really a gem. If you are looking for the real feel of old Hawaii this is the place. Plenty activities for families. Great beach, lots of onsite activities. Walking distance to Whalers Village.

We have returned here for our 4th stay. Overall the unbeatable location and the warm treatment we get from the employees is the reason we keep coming back We enjoy the pool area.
