First time in Maui. The amenities are excellent including the staff. Right away managed to sleep soundly on our first night. Comfortable bed and all the room/kitchenette are used by us. Housekeeping is daily. Very clean and the daily activities scheduled by Loreen, Recreation Manager, are very appealing to all ages. Good snorkeling place and rated in the "Top 10"... More

This was our third time to the Napili area and the first time to stay at the Napili Kai. We have previously eaten there and stayed at condos in the area. We decided to pamper ourselves at the Napili Kai and it was wonderful. The staff provided us with an upgraded room at no cost which was appreciated. From the... More

We have been coming here for years and love it. Just wanted to say I saw a review stating there are no real oceanfront rooms. I would disagree. Puna Point and Puna 2 are so close to the water you could throw a rock in the ocean from your lanai. I often see fish (and turtles) swimming from our lanai.... More

I have to say, I am not a resort kind of person, and seaside resorts usually provide for me no more than a couple of days' rest between more active parts of my holidays. Yet, I found this particular resort absolutely fascinating. It has little in common with the traditional, large concrete resorts like the Marriott's or Hilton's. It consists... More

We have come here twice--both times with our adult children and 1 grandchild. We could not have been happier; the beach is great, the pools wonderful, the front desk helpful and friendly, the maid service timely and efficient and the newly upgraded rooms beautiful. It has a very casual vibe, which our children prefer. This is not a Ritz and... More

We just got back as first timers to Maui and Hawaii for our 25th anniversary. The resort was recommended by a friend and the recommendation confirmed over and over by reviews on this site. We chose Napili Kai as an alternative to the high rise resorts in Kaanapali, something with local, old Hawaiian feel and we weren't disappointed. We were... More

The Napili Kai Beach Resort is a beautiful destination. We were on the north edge of a crescent beach. The resort shares the bay with several other resorts, the nearest being the Mauian. I think we were a little surprised at the size of the resort. I had made an assumption based on a photo at Trip Advisor that it... More

My husband and i spent 7 days of our Hawaii honey moon at Naipili Kai, and absolutely loved it. The location is just perfect, in a small cove with just 4 other resorts, just a few steps from the beach. The beach itself is just beautiful, with some good snorkelling right out the front, some green sea turtles :) The... More

We spent a week at Napili Kai. It's in a wonderful location. Near to activities, restaurants galore and yet a small Maui oasis. The resort offers a small snack bar poolside. An open air restaurant serving Breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. You have a choice of table cloth service or something a bit more casual by the bar. They also... More
