This was our 5th stay at the Alii. We feel its the perfect set up on Maui. Large condos, right on the beach, excellent service and staff. Yes some condos are better than others, but we feel the property more than makes up for the inconsistency of remodels. Unit 182 had really hard beds, but they brought up egg crates,...

We have stayed at Kaanapali Ali'i several times over the years with our daughters and cannot wait to go back this August with our grandson! We love having coffee and pineapple on the lanai while watching the waves crash on shore...perfect way to begin the day:) The condos are lovely and right on the beach. Reserve a covered lounge chair...

This was my first trip to Hawaii and I was so impressed by the condo, especially the staff. The condo was 1300 square feet with a great view of the ocean. It was very clean and extremely comfortable. Having a kitchen was really nice, especially because food in Hawaii is very expensive, so being able to save on breakfast and...

We just returned (this morning via the red eye, so pardon any misspellings) from our second stay at the Ali'i, and my family and I couldn't be more satisfied with this property. First things first -- this hotel sits on a prime stretch of Kaanapali Beach. Directly behind the main body of this complex is a coral/rock free stretch of...

My family and I stayed in a partial ocean view, one bedroom with den condo (#242) at the Kaanapali Alii in the first week of January 2013. The weather that week was subpar for Maui so the spacious 1500 square foot condo was a welcome base for the week. The property is excellent with two pools, one "quiet" and one...

My husband and I stayed at the Alii in early Decemeber. We had a wonderful condo with upgrades (242). We loved the location and the easy walk to Whaler's village. Very safe and relaxing place to shop with several restaurants. We ate breakfast at the Subway a few mornings (breakfast sandwich and drink for only $3.00 each). I did a...

The Kaanapali Alii is a wonderful property. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Our Condo was terrific with a great view. The beach is the best, and the staff really keeps the pool area clean. The BBQ grills are absolutely spotless. I agree with a previous reviewer...the mattresses and pillows could be replaced. Other than that, the ONLY thing...

This is the second time this year we have visited this resort. Staff is unbelievably friendly and always has a smile for you. We have stayed in four different units and I have to say that the hotel needs to do something about their beds. It is like sleeping on a bad water bed. No support at all and you...

We were celebrating my husband’s recovery from cancer and our 40th anniversary. We called them to make sure we were getting the right condo with a view and a renovated one. We got there and they gave us a condo that was NEVER renovated including mildew in the shower and broken tiles. Immediately we told them we wanted another room,...

We have stayed at the Ka'anapali Alii complex and many others in the area. The beach is great and the views are awesome, especially from ocean front corner condo on the 7th floor!! We were able to see the entertainment from our lanai at the Westin next door The complex is very clean as is the pool and grill area....
