Hope You Like Roosters

Room was an ocean view, a long way away ,had to walk around 4 buildings to get to the beach. everymorning was awakened by numerous roosters, staff was very polite and was very "too bad for you about the roosters. Parking spaces were very small, get ready for insurance claims. Nice beach setting though, better deals in area.

Great getaway

Perfect beach location! I was happy to know that the rooms will be remodeled soon. Everything was great but the room was over priced.

Great Location

Great setting. Beach especially nice for children. Lovely sunsets. Swimming pools (3) were all too small. Fitness centre rather small. Front desk staff very nice and efficient. We only dined at the restaurant once for the early bird special and were rushed through our meal in record time and the desert was awful. I would have preferred to pay full price and not get indigestion. The rooms were mediocre and very dated. This was not a big issue but the poor soundproofing between rooms was. We could clearly hear our neighbors conversations - not so pleasant at 7 am in the morning.

Peaceful and amazing

Napili Kai Beach Resort was everything that we thought it would be and it is an unbelievable beach location. We hung out on the beach quite a bit and engaged in snorkeling, putt-putt golf, and soaking up the sun on the white sand beach. This is the second time we have stayed here and would highly recommend it to anyone. Our particular room didn't have air conditioning, but it cooled down at night.

Relaxing getaway!

our week at Napili Kai in Oct was lovely.weather was beautful every day! the staff are warm,friendly and most are native Islanders who have been there many years as well as many vacationers who return every year or 2. the beach is perfect and we never needed to travel to have good snorkeling. the studios are well equiped and we used the BBQ grills most nites and watched the sunsets with dinner and saved lots of money on eating out. our studio was had no A/C but was fine with fan and sound of the ocean to sleep. other buildings are a/c. check.

The concierge is very helpful ,booked us a show in Lahaina at a discount price.

Wonderful vacation

Fantastic snorkeling location, it really can't be better than that, and beach; the hotel provides free masks, snorkels and beach towels. The beach is very nice and the view and sunsets with MolokaI and Lanai islands right in front, are spectacular. If you can afford it, Puna II rooms provide the most privacy and best views. Great location of the restaurant, a bit pricey but Maui is expensive everywhere you go. It's worth to have a kitchenette and make yourself some simple meals like sandwiches and salads to save money.The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The mattress of the sofa bed is not comfortable but they gave us a foam to make it softer and acceptable for a teenager. Our ocean view room was nice and clean and very quiet except when they mow the lawn on Mo, Wed, Fri at 9am for about 30 min. Overall we had a wonderful stay and vacation. I would certainly go back to this resort.

A beautiful place to relax!

This is a very quiet resort. If you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle we experience on the mainland, this is the place. Great location and the staff and hotel guests were so friendly. Just enjoyed our stay immensely.

A gem in Napili!

What a gem Napili Kai is! Located next to the Ritz Carlton on Maui and close to Kaanapali shopping. Our suite was just perfect - well-stocked kitchenette with full sized fridge, nice patio with unspoiled view of the beach and ocean.. staff is friendly and very accommodating. We saw lots of kids at the smallish beach (but a great beach for Maui!) but were never overrun by them. 3 or 4 small pools, so you could find a good place to relax and read. Great ocean swimming and snorkeling and paddle boarding. Nice restaurant with very reasonable prices. We took salads back to the room a couple of nights. We have stayed all over Maui and will absolutely be back to stay at Napili Kai. A home away from home!
