Napili Kai Beach Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Check-in thru check-out was pleasant, easy and great. Access to the beautiful private beach was wonderful. Had nice dinnerware in the room, so didn't have to bother with disposables. Views are amazing from the balcony as well as the beach.....

we stayed in room 10, close to the beach super convenient and relaxing we loved staying there, and it was our anniversary vacation we went to nearby Sansei Japanese restaurant 3 times and rented DVD movies at Napili market we had a great time and hope to return someday with the whole family

This property is more like a Condo than hotel. Our room had a complete galley kitchen and BBQ facilities on the property. The property is beautiful and quiet with gardens and multiple pools and hot tubs. The spa was good

My wife and I have visited Napili many times, staying in condos or nearby hotels. We had dined in the Seahouse restaurant, enjoying the great food, service and spectacular views. We always dreamed of staying onsite, but not felt we could afford the splurge with our kids along. Finally made the decision to go all in for our 25th wedding. Wow, what a fabulous time we had. The room was large, modern and well appointed. The staff was very professional, doling out 5-star service. The bar and restaurant were excellent. And of course, the property and it's location on the Napili Bay cannot be beat - paradise. This is where I want to spend my final days on earth!

Stayed at VRBO for a week and then here for a night. Really wished we had more time at this hotel! Staff and room were great! Putting green was a great bonus and location is incredible!

Absolutely loved the ocean front view from our room and balcony! Basic location was great! Pools are basic and unheated. Restaurant on-site was mediocre. Staff was otherwise lovely and friendly except for the concierge who was somewhat rude and absolutely NOT helpful.

I love this beach and hotel! My only complaint is breakfast is not included :-(. I think for the price it should be included. Also, we had a garden view this time and had ocean view for same price last time. Some rooms have kitchens and some don't, so be careful when booking

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at this resort. The best beach we ever visited! The room with a full kitchen was a big plus too. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times too. The Sea House Restaurant on site was excellent when we had breakfast and dinner. We are definitely returning.

We enjoyed our one-night visit at this hotel. We saw a beautiful rainbow, due to the rain. We wished that we would have had time to snorkel. The staff was very nice, and we would definitely recommend this hotel.

Overall, we had a great stay. We were there for 9 nights and were very sad to leave. Everyone at the resort was very nice and helpful. The beach is awesome and we saw some great sea life snorkeling in the cove, plus there are beautiful sunsets. If you require shade on the beach be prepared to rent am umbrella. They do offer beach chairs and beach towels that can be exchanged at any time throughout your stay. Our only complaint was with the beds. They put two twins together to make a king and they felt slightly uncomfortable. We had a room next to the lobby, which was loud at times, but they enforce quite time from 10pm - 8am. We look forward to our next visit to Maui.

We first stayed at the Napili Kai on our honeymoon in 1974, and this was our 5th visit there. Although the surrounds have changed significantly since then-- the Ritz-Carlton and golf courses have replaced the pineapple fields--the Napili Kai has maintain its feeling of old Hawaiian relaxation and hospitality. The views of the sunsets over Lanai and Molokai have not changed, and the beach on Napili Bay is still pristine. We enjoy the waking trails along the ocean, and also the easy access to all the activities in Lahaina. And their Happy Hour is not to be missed!

We only stayed two nights here before heading to our time share, and it was wonderful! Best beach, great food and we watched the sunset from our room. Great staff.

Very clean hotel, nice beach. Nice and friendly staff.

Napili Kai Beach Resort congratulations, you hooked me on Hawaii. I tried really hard to find any faults, but everything was perfect. If I could I would keep this place a secret, just for myself.

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

I would have rate it 6 stars if possible. Great place, friendly staff, free wifi, beautiful beach. I won't hesitate to stay at it again.

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.

From first moment of arrival we felt so special EverythIng one could want is here. The location is simply gorgeous situated in a cove along the coastline with a perfect secluded beach surrounded by the resort. There is a fabulous full service restaurant /bar/nightly entertainment offering the most spectacular view on the island. Food outstanding! Room left nothing to be desired. Ours had full view of beach & ocean, private patio access to, & full kitchen, large private bath. You just don't want to leave. There is a small golf course on the grounds, different daily activities, gift shop & spa? Staff was so friendly & attentive. I never stay anywhere else but here!!

This is a wonderful Resort. Right on one of the best beaches in Maui. You have got to get to the Happy Hour. Food and drinks there will make you say "OMG". My wife and I were there for some of the worst weather that Hawaii has had in 50 years, but we always seemed to find the Sunshine and Waves. Can't wait to go back.

Wonderful place, hate to tell people about it, it's so nice. Very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful clean grounds, perfect location.

easy to snorkel from beach

We enjoyed our one-night visit at this hotel. We saw a beautiful rainbow, due to the rain. We wished that we would have had time to snorkel. The staff was very nice, and we would definitely recommend this hotel.
