    Historical Traveler Reviews Kaanapali Alii Lahaina

    Cockroach city

    from

    Our stay in this otherwise nice condo was marred by an nauseating cockroach infestation. They came crawling out of literally any drawer that was opened and swarmed out of the dishwasher. With a toddler in our family, the only safe place to keep her food items and utensils was in the fridge. The management did send someone promptly to spray when we complained but that did nothing to keep them at bay plus we then had to worry about chemicals around her. Definitely not what one would expect of a "luxury" condo or for these prices!

    Great family vacation!

    from

    The Alii was excellent.....very spacious rooms. Pool is no big deal, nothing like the resort hotels near by like Hyatt, etc. but it was enough for my wife and 2 year old son. Depends on what you are looking for..if you want a very nice pool, the resort hotels are much better but the rooms are much smaller than Alii and their prices are higher per room. Alii has a nice area if you want to BBQ by the pool. Fitness gym is good....a bit small but was not crowded. Alii is ocean front so access to the beach is a hop step and jump. My wife, son and parents had a blast. If you are planning to go to Maui with 4 people, highly recommend Alii so you are not cramped in a smaller resort hotel room.

    Dream Vacation At the Kaanapali Alii

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Kaanapali Alii recently and had a dream vacation. We booked our trip through greathawaiivacations.com and saved money on top of it and had excellent service from this company. The Kaanapli Alii is located in the center of Kaanapali. They have large, deluxe rooms that were very beautifully decorated. Anybody wanting an upscale vacation should go to this place.

    Great trip At the Alii

    from

    My family and I just got back from a 2 week stay at the Alii. It was my 73 yr old father, 19 yr old daughter, 6 yr old twins, husband and myself. We stayed in unit 256, I will tell you that this is the nicest place we have ever stayed in Maui and have stayed here many times. Our condo was a 2 bedroom 2 bath. We didn't feel crowded at all. the condo was very clean. It had a super nice kitchen...we fixed all of our breakfasts and lunches in and about half of our dinners in too. They have nice stainless steel grills down by the ocean that are first come first serve but never had a problem when we were ready to cook. The pool is small but when we were there it was the slow season so it wasn't crowded. The grounds are BEAUTIFUL and well maintained. Whalers Village is just a short walk to the north...super shopping and great resturants. We tried all of the resturants there and loved them all.

    All in all we will stay there again the next time we are in Maui.

    So..So at the Alii

    from

    We were in Maui last January. Everything was perfect except our condo at the Alii. Our first condo had a king size bed that was so old and dirty that we asked to be moved. Our second condo was cleaner but very outdated. The furniture was worn and frayed. The pool was nice but small. Most of the staff was nice, but not "overly nice". I loved having a condo and the location of the Alii is the best. We liked being able to eat at great restaurnats or shop all within walking distance. I do think that a car is a must. Would I stay at the Alii again? Yes, but I will make sure that we stay in an updated condo. Linda S.

    The Best

    from

    The Best...I've checked out other condo's and will come back to the alii.

    Nightmare and rude

    from

    I had a few minutes to look through some places we have stayed in the last year and pulled up Alii.Won't be rushing back. I booked it and it was to be a updated room I was warned that there were some that needed help. It was our sons wedding and we would be entertaining. Had a oceanfront room 2 bedroom but decorated in early 50's down to the brown tile counter top. The staff was the rudest I have every seen. Tried to complain at check out and know one would talk to us they handed us a comment sheet.Don't ask for a late check out and be on the top floor because even though I asked for a late check out -at noon the lock on the door was changed and we got locked out.

    Premier unit was gorgeous

    from

    Stayed in a premier 1 bedroom ocean view unit and it was gorgeous. Also very spacious: it was so big we all thought it was a 2 bedroom.

    Apparently the 'den' in some units (ours included) contains a queen bed. It also had a bath attached and sliding louvered doors. This wasn't even the master! Great lighting, granite counters, very comfortable. The lanai was somewhat small, and the view of the ocean was small. Also a very private property. Great location with lots within a short walk.

    Condo Skeptic No More - Loved the Alii!!

    from

    Although skeptical about staying in a condo rather than an upscale hotel, the Alii did not disappoint us! My husband, our 14 month old, my mother and I all shared a 2bdrm/2bath condo, and we had a terrific week+ stay at the Alii. My husband (yes, traveling with his mother-in-law) calls it the vacation of a lifetime (and we travel very often). That says it all! The location is perfect. The staff was terrific (except the manager - a real jerk), and the accomodations were nothing short of top notch. When we're ready to brave the long flights to get back to Hawaii, we'll definitely stay at the Alii. I would recommend against a Mountain view room. The ocean front was super. They had a great beach, and the pool was not crowded at all. Note that it did not have the million dollar pool renovation of the Marriott or Westin (right next door), but our little guy really didn't care....

    What a great solution for families!!!

    Unbelievable...

    from

    I just returned from Maui where I stayed at the Alii. "Totally Awesome" is an understatement. This place is amazing! The rooms are fit for a king, and the view is unbelievable. I slept every night with the sliding doors open, and fell asleep to the sounds of the crashing waves. When they say "oceanfront", they mean it. The staff was very curteous, and made me feel right at home. The pool wasn't very fancy, but who needs an fancy pool when you have the beautiful Maui ocean? Shopping is a hop-skip-and a jump away at whaler's village, and the restaurants are truly authentic. Don't forget to catch the luaus. I'd have to say that the Kaanapali Alii was a major contributor to my good time, and the best vacation of my life.

    ... escaped the typical crowd of tourists, even if only for a bit. I ordered a bomb veggie omelet with rice and Keller got Grandma's famous Meatloaf Loco. Along with a few coffees, it was just what we needed after such an early morning wake up. We grabbed a few cookies for later, and were soon back on the road heading up to the east side of Haleakala National Park, near Hana, where I was dying to see the Bamboo Forest and The Seven Sacred Pools. The route to Hana from the backside ...

    I could use a handful of Valium! Hahaha

    One of the most photographed sites on Maui is the 'Iao Needle located in 'Iao Valley State Park. This is where we are headed and it is a gorgeous drive to the park.

    The 'Iao Needle rises straight up 2,250 feet. It is actually part of a ridge but it was not eroded like the ridge ...

    ... Had a taro roll, purple in color but tasted like a potato roll. The scavengers that attacked the buffet before us ate all of the yummy stuff out of the salad leaving Donna and I to eat grass and a few pieces that looked like weed leaves. We eventually walked back to the room and ate chips!!!

    We continued ambling down the street and stopped at jewellery stores to ogle at the jewels and into one which said they sold Murano glass. The shop keeper was doing a great selling job on one couple and didn’t have time for me … I couldn’t see any of the prices apart from ...
