“Great location - value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

The hotel is located on a resort beach strip -- one of the best locations in Maui. Lots of activities in and around the area (walk on the beach, snorkeling at Big Rock, surf lessons, good restaurants and shopping at the Whalers Village next door), with Lahaina just a few minutes away. It is obviously not a five star, and rooms are more like a 3 star (e.g. old TV, pay for safe, limited selection of coffee/tea), but is more than adequate. We took an ocean-view room, which was basically facing the hotel grounds, but you could see the ocean quite well to the left.
Employees were very friendly, and service was quite nice. The breakfast buffet was okay, but did not change at all through the week we were there. The daily shows were good, and worth watching once.

Would recommend to anyone who is going to explore Maui, and does not plan spend all the time in the hotel.

Room Tip: Try an ocean view room. Not sure if the ocean facing rooms are worth the premium (longer walk to th...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and really enjoyed. It has one of the best locations on Kaanapali beach, which is fantastic. The hotel itself has quite a run-down look and feeling but this did not impact our holiday. We would have expected more from the restaurant/bar, however few minutes away there are several places where to eat and drink in Whalers village.

I wanted an extra special getaway for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and found exactly what I was looking for in the Kaanapali Beach Hotel! My wife and I had visited Oahu in each of the prior two years and friends had told us to expand our horizons and check out Maui. It is now our favorite Island, and the KBH is our new home away from home! From my initial contact with Guest Services to make reservations and inquiries about activities, to the Kukui Lei Aloha ceremony upon our departure, everything was just magical. A special thanks go out to Malihini, Rance, and Lori for going out of their ways to make our visit and Anniversary extra special. It is no wonder they tout themselves as the Most Hawaiian Hotel, because from the staff to the décor, the KBH provides a unique experience that cannot be rivaled in the large chain resorts. We missed visiting last year while celebrating the wedding of our oldest daughter. We will be back in 2013 for Spring Break, as we have promised to share paradise with our two youngest daughters.

The customer service is top-notch, the location is in the most prefered area of Kaanapali, right next to black rock, and the value cannot be beat. Book here and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Depending on what type of getaway you are looking for, the KBH can accomodate. Ocean front in an upg...

I stayed at the hotel from 15-18 March with my wife. The location of the hotel is perfect, right next to black rock and Sheraton and its just a 10 mins walk to the Whalers village. However, the rooms look dated, and looks like they have not been renovated since decades. We managed to catch the hula show on 2nd night, which was interesting though nothing special. Get on the road and drive down to Kehei and Haleakala!

Room Tip: 1) Choose a garden view room, they are far more spacious. 2) The hotel doesn't have lifts. Take...
