Our stay at this resort was our first family Christmas vacation. We are a family of eight. My husband and I, our two sons and their spouses and two granddaughters, 6 and 2 1/2. We stayed in adjoining suites. One studio for one son and his family. They shared a king bed and pullout for the kids and a mini kitchen. Our one bedroom suite had a king bed with a balcony, and a pullout for our other son and wife. The only criticism we had was the pullout bed was not at all comfortable.
Our suite had a full kitchen for meals and our Christmas dinner.
The swimming pools were wonderful and clean, kids pool, hot tub and water slide. The beach was a short walk past the pools. Beautiful sandy beach, miles to walk and best of all, snorkelling right from the beach. Perfect!
The hotel staff were always helpful and friendly. One highlight for our granddaughters, was the visit on Christmas Eve, from one of Santa's elves.
A great vacation. One to remember.
Beautiful setting in the middle of the Kaanapali Beach area. Rooms were very accommodating. Beach access was excellent. Snorkeled daily off the beach as it was less than 10 meters offshore. Snorkeling with a turtle was a highlight. Kids really enjoyed the sunrise bike ride from the crater and taking surf lessons in Lahaina. Drive around the NW corner of Maui had some great views and experiences. 80 degrees F daily. Many nice grills to use around complex which worked out great with a large family vacation. Christmas on the beach with Santa arriving by canoe made for some great photos and a special day. Great family vacation.
Resort was pristine and beach was beautiful. Service was excellent. Shuttle service available, grocery store on site, activities for everyone. Pirate pool for the kids and adult pool, along with waterslide. Short walk to the beach.
We had a large family reunion for 20+ people including kids. The resort had plenty of common space with pools for everybody and bbq grills. The location was convenient and accommodations were very nice and comfortable.
Overall okay review; condo itself was good. Family of 3 kids & 2 adults had a corner 2-unit. Overlooking highway & parking lot was loud & not Hawaiian escape-inducing. But amenities were fine; size comfortable. The size of the resort is really big relative to pool options. Pool in south building is small considering # of people there; only 4 jacuzzis on entire resort for what must be thousands of people. Beach is really small--not wide at all. Probably wouldn't come back to Kaanapali at all based on small road to the area and traffic implied.
Wonderful time celebrating Christmas at this amazing resort! Lots of snorkeling in front of the resort. I love how it is a condo resort yet you can still go to a restaurant or order a drink if you feel like it!! A great break for moms who do the cooking!!
