Fodor's Review

Built in 1962 as the first hotel in the Kaanapali Resort, this grand property toward the northern end of Kaanapali has hosted millionaires and Hollywood stars, and today pleases families, budget seekers, and luxury travelers with its variety of lodging styles. The upgraded Lahaina Kai Tower features teak furnishings against light-color walls, plush beds with Egyptian cotton linens, and sound systems with iPod and MP3 docking stations. There are rumors that the quaint plantation-style

cottages will be replaced with luxury villas, but for now, they offer a timeless experience. At the Kaanapali Ocean Inn, you can stay for less money and a little less comfort, but with all the resort services and amenities. The poolside Don the Beachcomber bar, billed as "the Home of the Original Mai Tai," retains the retro-tiki style of Hawaii's early days as a vacation paradise.
