Fodor's Review

Amenities like daily maid service, an activities desk, small store with complimentary DVDs for guests to borrow, and 24-hour front-desk service—and no pesky resort fees—make this a winning choice for families and those wanting to play house on Maui's most stunning shores. The four secluded 11-story buildings offer one- and two-bedroom units with ample space, sunken living rooms, and separate dining rooms. Other amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center; three tennis courts; and an upgraded pool area with flat-screen TVs and cabanas. Not sure how to cook that fresh-island fish on the oceanfront gas barbecues? A "grill master" is on hand every evening to assist guests with advice and complimentary herbs, spice rubs, and other necessities, and the grills are stocked with plastic utensils and paper plates.

Perfect for us.

What a beautiful place. The location on Kaanapali Beach is on Kaanapali Point where surfers and boogie boardes enjoy the wave action and guests from other hotels walk to because the beach is nicer in front of the Alii. Rooms are very large (1500 square feet for a one bedroom, 1900 for a two bedroom). Since the units are privately owned there is a significant difference in furnishings and decor. Although some units have not been updated since the

Alii was built in the early eighties, most unit have been modernized. I would reccomend requesting an updated unit on the inner courtyard and perhaps being up a few floors for privacy and view. Our unit had Bamboo floors, a fully equiped kitchen, two full bathrooms and bed rooms (even though it was technically a one bedroom. Washer and dryer. Also two flatscreen plasma televisions and a selection of videos and dvds. The beds were large and comfotable. The beach boys were very helpful with chairs and towels. Housekeeping did a great job. The front desk check in and check out was quick and easy. I see nothing to complain about. I guess the pool is small and dated and does not have the "Pirates of the Carribean" look, that some of the other hotels in Kaanapali have. Also, there are no on site restaurants or bars, but everything is in walkig distance. The BBQ and dining setup by the pool is fantastic. Grills are well maintained and BBQ utensils are supplied. It is nice not to have to eat out three times a day. The Alii was perfect for us, we will alway stay here.
