Kanaapali / Lahaina ??

Any recommendations on where to stay close to the Kanaapali area? Maybe not on the beach but close.

WE stayed at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel and at the time it was really nice. The beach was nice, the food edible. Great poo poos in the afternoon too.

Snorkeling was pretty good just a few yards down the beach at Black Rock.

Contact www.hawaii4less for great condo/car packages. Many are oceanfront just north of Kaanapali Beach which is just a few minutes drive away. Great snorkeling just north of Kapalua. Also highly recommend www.noelani-condo-resort.com

Kaanapali Beach Hotel is a throwback to the 60's. Give me a break, the pool is whale shaped and there are men drinking at the bar at 8:00 am. This is disgusting. What is your budget? Will you settle for less just to go to Hawaii? I have heard the food is awful at this hotel. I heard that the people there are very nice but does that make up for the lack of amenities? The pu pu's in the afternoon don't make the difference. You will kick yourself when you see the other hotels in the area compared to this one.

Gail,

A whale shaped pool is disgusting? What is wrong with you, seems you're pretty disgusting yourself.

Kaanapali Beach Hotel is fine. It is more authentic than the others on Kaanapoli. Its also cheaper and less glitzy. If you are high maintenance or need to be with the 'beautiful' people then follow Gail. Westin is happy to take you $450 a night from you, Gail or anyone willing to pay.

Anyways, we enjoyed Plantation Inn in Lahaina. Check out their website.

Nova, don't know about the other people posting but we're two-time visitors (2000 & 2002) to Noelani and are very happy campers and will likely stay there again, it's a great place to stay.

Nigel, I didn't say the whale shaped pool was disgusting, I said the very early drinking disgusted me. Is this the type of people you want to mingle with at your hotel? I certainly don't. These are most likely the people who drink and drive after hitting all the bars on the Kaanapali strip. Kaanapali is a mini city now. We have stayed there in the past but will never go to that area of the island again. You can't even walk down the sidewalk without being constantly bumped or having to jump out of the way of joggers all the time.(At least their not at the KBH drinking so early) It is also rampant with rug ratted, ankle biters screaming and yelling. The parents are nowhere to be found. Gee where could the parents be? Maybey the KBH?

Gosh Gail, you're such a self righteous little b*tch. Let me guess, your sh*t doesn't stink, right?

We stayed twice at the Aston Kaanapali Shores hotel. BEAUTIFUL place. It's a condo/hotel resort. We had a 1 bedroom oceanview condo. Perfect for the two of us. Grocery store right across the street. This hotel is next to the Embassy Suites. Right on the beach. Even has a restaurant onsite. I definetely recommend Aston Kaanapali Shores. The only negative is you pay for parking.

Have fun!!

True, the Aston Kaanapali Shores is a beautiful place "right on the beach" - if you can call it a beach. The ebach in fron of the Kaanapali Shores is almost non-existent as many other people have pointed out on this forum. If you want a good beach, DON'T GO THERE !!

Is this site not allowed for condo owners or travel agents to voice their opinions? Can you point me to the rules of this forum? Don't want to get you upset if I decide to give people my opinion...

Best hotel on Kaanapali Beach is the Hyatt Regency.

I agree that the Hyatt is very good, but there is not a bad property on Kaanapali Beach. But beware of those that advertise themselves as being on Kaanapali Beach but are really a few miles North.
