“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

We stayed for our 10 year anniversary and loved everything about our stay. The hotel is a great value and has everything you need. The staff was very thorough and helpful. The food at the Sea House was great and a good value. We snorkeled every day and saw 3 turtles, tons of fish, and could walk right back to the room and take a nap. The resort is also walking distance to another fantastic beach and a couple great restaurants.

Room Tip: Make sure to have an ocean view room.

We have stayed in Kapalua in the past and we would come over to Napili Kai to eat at their wonderful restaraunt The Sea House. Also we would come spend a day on Napili Beach. Finally we thought, "Why are we staying at Ritz Carlton, when this is where we love to hang out"? For about the same price as a standard room in Kapalua, you can get a lovely ocean facing room at Napili Kai. We stayed in a one bedroom ocean suite and it was really worth the extra money. The view was spectacular. The king bed is in the front room toward the ocean. Our two kids were in a seperate bedroom in the back of the unit, each with their own nice twin bed. There was a small kitchen with full sized appliances and beautiful new cabinetry and granite countertops. We felt seriously spoiled. The beach at Napili is crescent shaped, clean, and beautiful. Medium sized surf, great for kids to play. Excellent snorkeling right off the beach with a variety of corals, fish, and sea turtles. The grounds of the hotel are really pretty and well kept, staff super nice. Walk up snack bar where the kids to could charge lunch or snacks. They provide beach chairs and towels. We got a massage at their small massage facility, it was great. We used the putting greens and outdoor games, they were fun. I really can't think of anything more they could offer. It's a wonderful place.

Once we discovered the Napili Kai, we just kept returning. When you check in, they greet you with "Welcome home", and that is just how it feels. The staff is friendly and many of them have been here for over 20 years. The snorkeling is good at three nearby beaches within walking distance. There is a weekly putting green golf tournament where you can meet other guests and enjoy 50 cent cocktails. Wednesday is the MaiTai party with free mai tais and another opportunity to meet fellow guests. There are also several great restuarants that you can walk to that have great food, cocktails and views.

The joy of NaPili Kai is that they are still a bit of "Old Hawaii" in an area that is becoming a "little Cancun". Great staff keeps the place immaculate. Ocean View Studios in Lani building have been remodelled and are wonderful. Fully outfitted kitchens in the studios and gas grills on the property let you do some of your own cooking at a quality level. Happy Hour at Sea House can't be beat but sometimes it's fun to grill while watching whales just offshore.

Room Tip: Lani I & II don't have AC but do take best advantage of the trade winds with screened window...

My wife and I both stayed here multiple times as kids in the early 80s and loved it. We have been back three times since starting our own family and hands down agree its our favorite spot.

It is the only hotel I have ever stayed in without finding something to complain about. Napili Kai is what you imagine Hawaii to be like, low-key, beautiful, beachfront and relaxing.

We stayed in Puna 2 and the newly remodeled rooms were beautiful!! The bathrooms were very nice and modern, I loved the dual shower head.

The Sea House restaurant still puts out consistently delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is no need to travel around the island searching out the next great place, its right there in front of you. The onion soup and coconut shrimp are incredible

I cannot wait to go back this fall, we are counting the days!!!
