True bliss, you may never want to leave Maui Kaanapali Villas. This resort is set along Lahaina's sandy shores and amidst 11-acres of lush tropical gardens creating the ultimate backdrop for a dream Maui vacation. Spend your days exploring the resort and following the footpath to breathtaking Kahekili Beach. Dine on island cuisine with a view at the Castaway Cafe. Get moving and join a yoga class or water aerobics. Enjoy on-site amenities that include two swimming pools and jet spas, a fitness center, spa, shuffleboard court, a picnic area, and barbecue grills. Guests are also invited to hop aboard the Kaanapali Trolley to access nearby shopping, dining, and golf destinations.
We absolutely love the Maui Kaanapali Villas resort, and particularly unit 180. The resort sits north of black rock, away from all the crowds on the main part of Kaanapali Beach, while still an easy walk on the beach path to Whaler’s Village and other resort restaurants. The beach here is outstanding – calm waters, nice sand, and great snorkeling just a short walk up the beach. The resort provides lounge chairs (for free!) on the lawn in front of the beach, has a nice pool and hot tub, a great bar, okay restaurant, and activity rentals all right there on site. This condo unit #180 is right on the lawn facing the ocean, and it’s wonderful to be able to walk right out of your condo to the lounge chairs and beach, or lounge on the lanai looking out at the water and sunsets. The bed is very comfortable, the linens and towels are especially soft, the décor throughout the condo is lovely, the LR has a huge TV that you can watch from the lanai as well, the bathroom and kitchen are modern and spacious, and the condo has every amenity you might need. The owners even provide beach chairs, umbrellas and other beach items you might need which we really appreciated. They are also very responsive to communicate with and very accommodating. This was our second stay in this unit and we will definitely be returning. The only down-side – it’s extremely hard to leave!
Beautiful Property in Kaanapali
Staff was friendly and attentive from check in until check out. The property is clean, well maintained and located within walking distance of many attractions. Shout out to the great staff members who went over and above.
Great Visit to Maui
Our family had another wonderful stay at MKV. Our room was clean, spacious and it felt like our home away from home! Enjoyed relaxing down at the pool and the beautiful beach. We also love that Castaways is right there on the property, we had friendly service and there's plenty of choices on the menu that even the picky eaters in the family had food they'd eat! We also loved being able to grab a cup of coffee or tea for our morning stroll along the beachfront walk. A special thank you to Michael for capturing a few beautiful sunset family photos. It's the little gestures like that that stand out and make MKV our top place to stay while visiting Maui!
Great location and atmosphere
Easy check in, castaway cafe was good, beach was fantastic and the rooms were clean. The pool and hot tub were well maintained and the activity shack was good. Spent most of our trip sitting in a cabana or swimming in the ocean.
Great location for your stay
This was our first time at this hotel. Not fancy but great for the price. and location great. You can walk to the beach, Whaler's village (if you like walking), Duke's. Restaurant on site is Castaway Cafe. Great food, nice view, and wonderful Bloody Mary. They are going through renovations but it did not bother us.
Our room had been updated inside and was very nice and very comfortable. However it did have a few issues. I strongly suggest if you get assigned room 182, refuse it and ask for any other room in that same building. The building it was in is in the best location, but that room is the worst because of position in the building and no freezer in the refrigerator.
