This was our 10th year in a row to stay at the Alii and it just gets better, I can’t tell you enough how much we love it from the office staff to the bellmen to the pool staff, we always have a great time. See you soon…

“Paradise in a beautiful oceanfront condo!”
We were scheduled for a vacation to France due to Iceland volcano, we quickly changed to a Maui trip. This condo was a random selection and a terrific surprise. The third floor oceanfront 2 bedroom condo has updated and beautifully decorated. The pool was never crowded, well maintained and included a pavilion with two large screen TV so we didn’t miss the basketball playoffs while poolside! The pool staff was wonderful, very helpful. Also there was a recently renovated brand new oceanfront 10-stand barbeque area – looked like those fully furnished outdoor kitchens. We did not use those grills but chose to stroll to Whalers Village very close buy that had three terrific restaurants.

“Awesome Secret, we will be back”
Far and away exceeded or expectations. This hotel, which is also/originally condo’s provided a great place that is perfect for families. Kaanapali, is a great family beach as it is. This adds to it. There is a fully stocked kitchen along with dinning room and living room. There is also a separate alcove/room for the extra bed. Clean and courteous we were there when it was quiet and empty and departed after a big holiday rush and nothing changed in the great service we received. The maid service was so good they called maintenance at the slightest defect which was quickly rectified (even though we never even noticed the issue in the first place). I have traveled and lived in Hawaii for years and this by far is the best vacation stay experience I have had!
