    A Classic Hawaiian Experience

    from

    We just celebrated our 20th Anniversary at this wonderful spot. It is a classic old Hawaiian resort, with ample amenities and services. The prices are great, especially when compared to so called 4 star resorts like the 4 seasons and Ritz Carlton, which , in Hawaii, ream you for everything. Food here is adequate and reasonably priced. The beach and views are su[erb ( I prefer this beach to the adjoining Kapalua beachs, easier to get to). Also, Kapalua is right next door with a great, great Japanese restaurant (Sansei), tennis and golf.

    I much prefer this to "corporate " resorts (the Hyatt h a Macy's in the lobbby. I tried to buy a washer/dryer, but could not find the appliance department!!!!!!!).

    The only possible negative is the adjacent time shares. They just have a different feel

    Wonderful, Relaxing Vacation

    from

    We spent one week at the Napili Kai Beach Resort in March and had an incredible time. After spending two weeks on the island in two different locations I can see what makes this property special. The Napili Kai is located on a wonderful swimming beach, and there is awesome snorkeling right around the corner at Kapalua. This property provides so many amenities such as snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, daily fresh pineapple and lemonade, plus much more. Each evening we enjoyed a cool torch-lighting ceremony at sunset. Napili is so relaxing; it is definitely "the unhurried way of life." We will return to Maui someday, and will most definitely stay at the Napili Kai.

    It doesn't get any better than this...

    from

    I just want to mention that our experience at Napili Kai resort was outstanding, we believe it holds the best beach in the whole island (Napili Bay). the room was super clean and the view was breathtaking. The staff at Napili Kai Resort were first class and gave us an upgrade to ocean view at no extra charge. All the facilities were super well kept and the staff went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. On our last day we ask for a late check out thinking to leave the hotel around 8pm and they did not charge us extra. I just want to say that even if the more expensive places over at Kaanapali beach were at the same rate as Napili Kai I would not blink or hesitate in choosing this resort again. It is the best value in Hawaii by far. We'll be back.....

    Great location, tired room

    from

    We stayed at Napili Kai last Xmas. It was highly recommended by many travel books, etc. It is a true "Old Hawaii" type resort. There are good and bad points to this complex. First, the views of Napili Bay are fantastic. An added bonus is that Kapalua Bay is right next door so you have two beautiful beach options. Second, the beach itself is great for kids. There is a quiet and calm section that the resort fronts. Farther down the beach there are decent waves for boogie boarders. Third, the snorkeling is great and we saw many varieties of fish and many turtles.

    In addition, this is a pretty good whale watching spot. The putting green, snack hut, and kids activities are great but word of warning, if you are spending Xmas there, sign up for kids activities in advance because they fill up quick. The SeaHorse restuarant is great for all meals and we found the wait staff very friendly. Now for the rooms, very average and ours was worn and tired looking. It needed updating badly in terms of carpet and painting. For $450.00 per night it should have been better. A good option is Napili Point across the bay. I checked these units out and they are much more updated about $100.00 a night cheaper.

    I'd love to go back!

    from

    We stayed at the Napili Kai the second week of July for our 25th anniversary (brought our kids, too). Our room in the Puna II bldg. was fabulous, the kids had their own bedroom and bathroom, the view was wonderful, and it was great having a kitchen. The grounds are gorgeous and very well maintained. The beach was beautiful with great snorkeling (gear was free), my husband was only disappointed that they did not have kayaks (and the ones next door at the Kapalua Bay Resort were terrible and very expensive). The restaurant was OK, but rather overpriced for the quality-the view was fantastic, though. My kids loved the free children's program they have, and the complimentary mai-tai party was great. We'd come back if we could!

    The greatest place to stay

    from

    Napili Kai was the greatest, the staff was very helpful. The view from the room was very nice! The snorkeling right on their beach is fantastic. Snorkeling gear is provided free, Mai Tai parties - free, 18 hole putting course - free, warmed beach towels - free. They do not nickel and dime you when you stay there. The food in the restaurant was absolutely fantastic! They provide kitchenettes so you can fix meals in your room or out on the barbeque. We had the time of our lives!

    Great and friendly resort

    from

    The Napili Kai offered us a very relaxing vacation on a great beach for relaxing and snorkeling. We will be staying again on our next trip to Maui.

    I'd love to go back there again

    from

    I stayed there with my husband for a week in June, 2003. It is a relatively small, low key resort. It has a traditional Hawaiian looking unlike other hotels in West Maui area. Their private beach was one of the best places for snorkeling. It was actually better than Molokini Island. Our ocean view unit w/kitchen was very spacious, clean, and comfortable (I heard that some units don't have A/C, so you need to request it if you definitely need it). Hotel staffs were very nice. They appeared to enjoy their work at the resort. The restaurant was okay. Rental car is recommended if you'd like to join activities outside of the resort such as shopping, hiking, half day trips to nearby islands, etc. If you are seeking for relaxing vacation, I'm sure that Napili Kai is one of the best choices.

    Great Place to stay

    from

    Great resort. Friendly people. Beautiful beach and bay. Goooood food!!! Spacious rooms. A view that's hard to beat. True Hawaiian experience. Manicured grounds.

    Honeymoon Heaven on Napili Bay

    from

    Several people warned us before taking of for the Napili Kai Beach Club. Napili is a gawd-awful condo infested eyesore, they said. For what we were paying, we should be down in Wailea enjoying the fantastic resorts. Travel guides and friends agreed: do not pay resort bucks to stay in Napili!

    Thank goodness we stuck with the good advice of Best Places to Stay Hawaii, and stayed in our ocean view studio on the gorgeous Napili Bay. Our room was spacious, clean, and had a stunning view. A fully equipped kitchenette made dining convenient and affordable. The staff was friendly and full of aloha spirit. Best of all,

    the rumors of Napili's tackiness were false. None of the buildings on the bay were taller than the coconut trees surrounding them, and the view was gorgeous. Snorkelling in the bay was a dream,and the water was very calm. The lack of air conditioning in our unit was never a problem -- the cross breeze from our slatted door to our spacious lanai kept the room fresh and cool -- more than I can say for our slightly musty smelling room at the outrageously expensive Princeville Hotel in Kauai! The Napili Kai Beach Club Resort offers beautiful landscaped grounds, golf, tennis, croquet, shuffleboard, pleasure-craft-free swimmable water, sand beaches, free activities (hula lessons, lei making, mai tai parties) -- it is an incredible place. In the end, we never even bothered checking out Wailea and the other South Maui beaches. Napili Kai Beach Club resort will be our resort of choice for anniversaries to come.

    ... and so many gluten and dairy free options! From there we headed back towards the hotel and down a random side road which lead to the main shopping and restaurant district of Lahaina. We stopped in at Bubba Gump and had a super tasty lunch then back to the hotel for a swim. For dinner we went to a traditional Luau which was similar to what I remember seeing as a kid. Such impressive dancing and some of the local boys were a bit ...

    Day 7 Kihei to Kaanapali

    Had a somewhat restless night. Was up at 7.00 and walked around the grounds. At 8.00 attended a instruction talk about what to do in Maui, which offered small breakfast. I asked about local bus to get around and got a less than enthusiastic response. Went back and told Edie and she said it would be easier if we hired a car for the day. So we went back down to the Lobby at 10.00 and asked about hiring a car. Yes we could get one, but they only had a Yukon left. Last minute ...

    Today was the opposite of yesterday. Woke to Trade Winds and crystal clear sky and sun after the storm yesterday. Denise walked up the road while we showered and dressed. At 9:30 GG went to the lobby to read and we walked to the Sheraton at Black Rock. We walked the sand for the 1.5 miles going and then took the paved route back. Nice walk as the pictures show. Lunch was at the Hula Grill at Whalers Village a short three mile or so drive up the road. We could ...

    ... a lot of the waterfalls were dry. But several of the major falls were still full. When we were in Maui several years ago, it was during the summer. There was a waterfall at each turn.

    We stopped at several pulloffs to look at various falls and the vegetation. Our first stop was Puohokamoa Falls. It was a beautiful two level falls. Several folks were swimming in the pools under the ...

    Do you know the goddess Pele? From Hawaiian mythology, the 'earth-eating woman', she is known for her power, passion, jealousy, and capriciousness. Well, she was in fine form that morning! The temperature was 1 degree Celsius with winds of 80 km/hour. With a large group of tourists, we waited for ...
