What a stunning location! A quiet piece of paradise just up the hill and only minutes from being central to everything you need We had a fabulous stay, with everything that we could ever have asked for! Our room was spacious and well appointed, super comfortable and breakfast was delicious The property is not something you should miss either

All round exceptional and would highly recommend!

Derek Schott

Yes, the coveted five star review From start to finish, this was a spectacular place to stay if you are looking at getting away from people, and enjoying extreme luxury With beautiful grounds, you would think that would be the selling feature, but it is the customer service which makes this place stand out

Dan from start to finish was outstanding Always there when you needed anything, but never in your way After a year of covid debacle, Dan was able to get our reservations secured, and was literally waiting outside the door upon our arrival a year later Its quiet, somewhat remote, and everything you need is taken care of Rarely does a place get a five star review from me, but if you find yourself in Maui, this is a place that should be experienced at least once in your lifetime

Geoff Carignan

We just left Ho’oilo House after spending our honeymoon there and had the BEST time I’ve never felt more comfortable, accommodated, and relaxed in my life Such a beautiful place, amazing views, and lovely people

Every detail from the fresh bread to the amazing bathrooms is perfect, what a delight to stay and create a fantastic memory

They also have complimentary yoga, and aerobics Laundry room was also present Beach walk was gorgeous Will definitely come back

Dean Viger

What a wonderful and enjoyable stay at the Maui Ka’anapali Villas My family loved the site with all of the on scene amenities and beautiful flora It was definitely less crowded than most other resorts on Maui

Great access to beach and pool The towel service was great! My Perfect Stays had has a lower booking rate than Air B&B The convenience booking fee and the “cleaning” fees are much lower As for the room itself, we loved it Our family of 5 fit very nicely for our economical trip to Maui The view from the room is stunning Full sized kitchen appliances and kitchen was very helpful The only thing that could be improved on is the shower Very little to no temperature control, very slippery when wet, and the curtain is a nuisance Not enough to change my 5 star rating but still something to be considered!!! Anyways, we loved it Thanks!!!

Hasmik Gyurjinyan

Just returned from this resort it is the best Room was very clean and being cleaned frequently It had full kitchen and fridge so if needed you can cook also the balcony seating was my favorite for breakfasts

The resort location is 8 minutes away from Whalers village, where you can get on trolley for free The location is very quiet (went to some other beaches, they were too crowded) the beach was sandy/small stones, which made it easier to walk and swim, and it didn’t have many reefs in water, so the best place for swimming, though there were no big waves as wellAs a person who is very picky I highly recommend this resort

Mena

I stayed here in January 2022 and enjoyed my stay greatly The location is absolutely perfect – you’re right on the beach and steps from so many restaurants and stores I had a room with a garden view and was surprised to find out it still had an amazing view of the ocean

The free laundry and detergent were great to have on hand, and the grounds were really nice to walk around I had an extremely relaxing and enjoyable stay and would definitely return!

Evelyn Garza

This hotel is in a great location and the room amenities were very convenient for example, the free washing and drying machines found on each floor, the dish washing supplies, and clean towels were nice to have We did have problems getting hot water and spoke to the staff about it a couple of times in which they sent someone to look at it but they couldn’t fix it The handyman just told us it was because they had recently remodeled

The hot water was not continuous and it would get cold throughout our showers After a long day at the beach all I wanted was a hot shower 🥺 If it wasn’t for that I would have given 5 stars

Ben Kenyon

This place is fantastic, with great views and perfectly located in Kaanapali Our room was huge, almost like a suite and the grounds are immaculate I would have given 5 stars however the attitude of one of the staff members working in the beach hale was terrible and these things matter

Overall apart from that I would recommend this place!

We loved this little hotel Quiet area with pool, beachfront, and excellent restaurants within walking distance Basic complimentary breakfast

Kitchens in your room Grills on property for use Loved listening to the sound of the waves at night No TVs, no distractions Just about being present And the beds/pillows are AMAZING! Best nights sleep we’ve gotten in a long time You sit on the bed and you’re out Haha Rooms are comfortable Definitely recommend

Jamie mckinney

This place is very nice outside The grounds are immaculate! The beach is so beautiful and the staff is extremely nice The problem is, you can hear every conversation going on next door and above you

We had to get up at 4am for an early excursion and got maybe 3 hours of sleep because the couple next door was arguing, then once they finally went to bed someone over there was snoring uncontrollably! It was insane! I’ve never experienced a more noisy room in my life! I almost went and slept in the rental car! Parking is also an issue Tight spots and not enough for all the guests No bar or restaurant on the premises either but there are a few places you can walk to As beautiful as it is, I don’t think I can come back here with how thin the walls are which is a real bummer because it’s absolutely beautiful!

Kristina Johnson Mazourek

We really enjoyed our stay Absolutely beautiful grounds and well maintained rooms Staff and other guests were very friendly

Beach out front is gorgeous—one of the nicest beaches we saw on MauiWe enjoyed using the grill by the pool and having a kitchenette in the room Going out to eat is expensive on Maui so it was nice to supplement with making our own foodContinental breakfast offered is good but light We bought some yogurt to go along with it Recommend bringing a coffee mug and plate from your room

Lauree Hawes

We booked two rooms through Costco for my family and my parents We had requested adjoining rooms at booking When we arrived they had us on completely different floors which was not going to work with how much we wanted to spend time together

They found us new rooms on the ground floor a few rooms apart We did lose out on our ocean view that we paid extra for but it was EXTREMELY convenient to be on the ground floor fairly close to the pool We were not far from our room which made the many trips back to our room betterWe enjoyed the pool everyday and ate from every restaurant The staff was always great and attentive We rented a cabana for one of our pool days and we really enjoyed having the service and shade Highly recommend a cabana We booked this prior to arrivingThe hotel also has sunscreen stations which was a lifesaver for the harsh sun on kids!We saw turtles swimming by black rock and even jumped off So much fun! We would stay here again

Priya Ball

Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again The resort definitely shows some age and is not as modern as most of the other places along the beach, but the rooms are decent and the location on the beach is really great You can go snorkeling straight off the beach, or go cliff jumping into the ocean if that is your thing

The pool is large and windey Not a lot of features to it, but plenty of space for everyone We got an ocean front room and were pleasantly surprised with the size, it was larger than we expected and had 2 balconies The actual ocean view you get likely cannot be matched by other resorts given how the Sheraton is at the very end of the beach and stick out quite far The bathrooms are showing their age but everything was well cleaned and maintained The open air lobby is beautiful and is a really nice spot to hang out and enjoy ocean views The Coral Reef restaurant is tasty and Cliff Dive bar is one of the best views to get with your expensive cocktail Skip the Sandbar The game room is in sore need of repairs but the fitness center is fairly modern Above all else the views from the Sheraton are breathtaking

Lauren

Incredible friendly staff! Saved us from a place down the way that was not clean or comfortable so this was a nice upgrade The room is nice but very standard The amenities are great but you have to pay a fee to use them and nothing is included

It would be nice for how much you pay to have some drinks included or some other things to be used in the pool and on the beach to be complimentary We had a very positive experience and the views the facility was amazing

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any hotel This web site will compare countless hotel sites and usually will have rooms a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This hotel is one of my favorites in this area

I’ve been staying here for years If you choose this place you won’t regret itNice resort Wish they had more servers around the pool area and beach facing lounge chairs area Parking convenient below each building Located in a nice resort area but it’s a long drive to the national park and road to Hana The beach at the resort is great for snorkeling

Jessie Garcia

Gorgeous place! The villas were very clean, spacious, and large We had a 2 bedroom lock off for a family of 4 and we felt so at ease and comfortable The facility has several pools to choose from just steps away from the beach

The tennis/pickle-ball/basketball courts were always open and you could rent equipment for free through the front desk The shuttle bus taking you to different areas of the island nearby was so convenient The staff were friendly and very accommodating I loved the sparkling water machine to fill up my water bottle in the lobby, such a nice touch! My family and I ate several times at the restaurants on the property I remember Auntie’s Kitchen because we ended up there the most, but they were all great! So many beautiful plants, flowers, and trees on the property too!

Cheyenne Gillooly

We had a good stay once we were settled We arrived around 1pm Our room was supposed to be ready by 4

It was nearly 6pm before we got to our room The wait was unplanned and I’m 7 months pregnant- wasn’t great just waiting for not endWe did love the cabana in the day Grounds were beautiful and cleanThe beach is a super short walk and easy accessValet was fast 🙂

Martha S

Absolutely the best view and service I loved waking up and seeing their swans and other birds in their court yard

As well as the birds chirping The otherside you can hear and maybe see the nightly luau The beach is right outside of the walkway Kids pools were great for the little ones It ties in with the other pool They had water slide and all the convince we needed for our best vacation in our lifetime Regency was the best of all the locations when visited HawaiiIf we ever go back this is the o e for us

Surya Teja

Awesome property to stay Hyatt is so generous to its customers I highly recommend their hotel statuses which can get you a nicer room if available

Many activities at this location We loved the free morning yoga at the Napili gardens Staff is super friendly Japengo’s food is awesome and do an early reservation; and to the Pacific drums of Luau

Carlos Castro

Our visit to the Spa was nice and the Massage and the Rock Massage was amazing! There was only a couple things that dropped our rating that was: Marilyn Monroe never came to the place so it doesn’t hold any actual connection to her, upon making the reservation for a couples massge we weren’t encouraged to arrive early to use the Sauna, Jacuzzi, Steamroom or relaxing area So once all was said and done we got dressed and went about our day

Overall it was very nice as a first for us @ $165 for full body Massage and $180 for Stone full body Massage and a mandatory %20 gratuity totalling $428 I might recommend passing on this to utilize the money on larger activities, to create more memories but in all that’s up to each person We do do appreciate what we did receive So Thank you!!

It really is pretty No full kitchen or laundry in our room which is a bit disappointing since it’s a vacation club Our rooms are quite large, which is why I wish we could have laundry

The staff for the most part are awesome!Within walking distance of shops and restaurants so you don’t have to leave unless you want to Lots of stuff for kids to do The pools are really nice and have fun features

Michael Teleha

Very torn between 3 and 4 It is a nice place to stay Parking is good staff is friendly

Like most hotels not enough staff Easier to get your own a lot of the time then wait for server Free self parking Food is typical Balconies on the room are a disappointment First too narrow Then handrail at eye level Finally- a wall ⅔ up the railing height every other floor blocking views I think the lack of depth is what makes them tuff to manageTypical free gift that is not a gift It is a gift after you take a tour and hear the sales pitch = not much of a resort credit for 2-4 hours of your time

I have been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you for sure won’t be let downFamily friendly and everything was super easy We opted for the one bedroom suite and it was HUGE, especially compared to other places like the Hyatt You get way more bang for your buck here Staff works really hard to make the resort clean and running smoothly Tip well! Walk to Whalers village, pool area is awesome and there’s tons of stuff for kids Obviously resort dining is quite overpriced but convenient If you want better food for cheaper I’d leave the resort area and bring it back Free trolley will take you to Whalers or other resorts

Tami Burnett

Great Location to spend a week with the family! Easy access for shopping and restaurants and perfect flexibility for families The kitchen amenities make it an ideal location for families who may want to relax at home rather than going out It’s the best of both worlds

Just like everyone else says the parking is horrible Be prepared to unload the family from the car before parking in the stalls We brought floaty‘s to enjoy in the pool and had a lot of questions about where we got them from Amazon and they’re super easy to pack! Also keep your screen doors closed in the condo because birds will fly in and take food off your kitchen table

Suzanne Dieter

We’ve been coming the this Marriott since 1997 and it never fails to deliver a fantastic experience! The staff is amazing – they are beyond friendly and welcoming, we feel like family every time we check in Krystle is like a big sister to the tribe that is my parent’s grandchildren, she’s seen the older ones grow up and now is meeting the younger generation, and they all love her! She does the kid’s activities throughout the day and we had kids from 21 to 3 years old just loving hanging out with her At the pool bar the bartenders remember our faces year after year and always have a smile for us

The staff hasn’t changed in the last 30 years, so that’s saying somethingThe views from the pool are amazing, you can walk to Whaler’s Village in 10 minutes, you’re a 5 minute drive to Lahaina, and the rooms are supremely comfortable You can’ ask for more

Ling Ling Wk

Unreachable staff made it difficult to check in So what no one tells you is that there’s only check-in available from 9:00 to 5:00 pm

if you arrive after these hours, you have to contact a third party to check in There was no way of knowing this until we just called security to ask what we should do after driving around the complex for about 30 minutes The third party did their best But had very limited knowledge of the resort, so couldn’t tell you exactly how to get to our unit or any of the amenities of the area They can only tell you how to get a key and then advise you to call the front desk when the front desk is open Super disappointed so far in this rather expensive resort

Shikhar Agarwal

The property itself is a beautiful one It is on the northeastern part of the island which makes it rather secluded The property is well maintained

However, the rooms are outdated and in need of significant improvements As seen in the pictures, there are tiles that are cracked, paint that is crusting and cabinets that need to be repairedThe LCD TV was placed crooked in a smaller TV stand, meant for the old picture tube TVsDue to COVID, there was absolutely no service in the room, which is understandable However, if the service was desired, there was an extra charge for it—> this is a little fishy, since hotel rooms generally come with free service at least once One would imagine that for $575 per night, there could be arrangements for a room clean up service at least once every few days

Danielle Watimar

I’ll start by saying, I booked this through hotwire they charged my card immediately when I booked and noted that I would be charged an additional $90 at check-in for resort fees when I got to the front desk to check in, she immediately gave me an invoice for an additional $419! she said it was cleaning charges

I let her know that I was not aware and that I was only told about the $90 fee she said there was no way that they would be willing to “absorb” that cost She was super unapologetic and offered not solutionI am a local on Maui, and had my two kids in the car I told her I couldn’t pay another $400+ on top of the HUGE amount I had already paid for the rooms now, two nights at a condo was going to be well over $1000?! again, very unempathetic and just acted like she didn’t care luckily, I was able to get a refund and drive away, but what if I was a tourist who was checking in and had no other place lined up? I just wanted to make people aware before they book, come out here and are unexpectedly hit with a huge fee we ended up driving to the Napili Kai, and it was, hands down, one of the best places I’ve stayed! please do your research so you aren’t surprised when you arrive!

It’s nice that it’s more isolated which a positive we felt Staff were so friendly and great The Banyan Tree was average at best and service wasn’t great

Overall expected so much more The lounge is solid with drinks and food and staff was great By far the worst of 3 places we stayed in Hawaii The valet was great although sometimes took a while and one day left on side where slippery and someone fell One hot tub never seemed to get warmIt needs updates I get it’s set back more from beach which is ok but just needed more Food and drinks close way too early too Spa was booked up Just overall dated and not a Ritz quality Great on helping with transportation and helping at valet I don’t think I’d return overall it was nice but not what you expected and pay for itA few updates and changes I’d go again

Bmore Mike

I want to give 5 stars but issue 2nd night with waiter at dinner Otherwise service was excellent! Shout-outs to Margy at the front desk, Z at the breakfast restaurant, & Al for the delicious omelets served with a smile (please get that man new pans!) Service was impeccable

Location is nice if you want to get away from the crowd but 30 minutes or more to most attractions However, there’s a great beach steps away from the property along with a nice trail

Charra Hammett

We stayed here for 4 days in January 2022 and had an AMAZING time The staff greeted us with leis and fresh drinks before we even walked in the door We had an ocean view room overlooking the golf course with incredibly beautiful views

The staff was exemplary and helpful The burger shack & banyan tree both had amazing food and the pool was spectacular The beach was also amazing and you could see whales breaching from allAround Napili beach was 3 minutes away with the BEST snorkeling and everything we wanted to do was close Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

This place is just paradise The room view is spectacular along with the pools It has a cave that has a bar inside that connects two large pools

Entrances are covered with waterfalls Two negatives is that the beach is small by the hotel but you can walk little to get to a wider one Almost no one was on the beach in front of the hotel The other negative is the exorbitant cost for drinks Stella was $20 for small draft Good thing there is a convenience store off the lobby that is outside owned that is 6 pack Stella for $15 Otherwise it’s just beautiful

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a place They compare hundreds of booking web sites and typically will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! You’re welcome :)! This hotel is one of the most well known in the area

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you stay for a few nights you definitely won’t be let downI didn’t stay here The Lu”au was here and it was a great show The food was very good Deborah was an excellent server and she took care of all of us so well I highly recommend The Drums of the Pacific The Hyatt is very beautiful!

BEWARE! This is our fourth visit to the Hyatt Residence Club Maui Look forward to a peaceful vacay in one of the uppermost sophisticated condominiums in all of Maui Expansive top-quality furnishings, including all Bosch appliances, fantastic views from the Lanai, and superior construction

However, BEWARE! According to the Club salespeople there exists a ‘loophole’ in the contract with the sister Hyatt Regency property next-door Although homeowners here pay for property maintenance from the yearly dues, for some crazy reason the Hyatt Regency has the ‘right’ to take over the 24,000 square-foot green area in front of the condos between us and view of the ocean Homeowners have no say This year we are exposed to nightly 800+ people corporate events with loud entertainment Our ‘boutique’ peaceful experience was ruined Wait that’s not all… the Regency also tells their guests the pool areas at the Residence Club are open to them Great, more screaming kids and drinking adults taking over the pools The Hyatt Residence Club condos are very expensive Worth every dollar if it was not for pure corporate greed and some outrageous ‘loopholes’ in the agreement with the Regency next-door For now, STAY AWAY and BEWARE! Don’t go there and for sure don’t consider purchase We ‘hear’ rumors that lawsuits are already in play Five Stars to One Star

This hotel is immaculate Everything about it is amazing It was a bit pricey, but every bit worth it in my groups opinion

The staff are all wonderful, the property is beautiful with manicured landscaping and foliage everywhere Gorgeous views of the mountains & ocean! The rooms are spacious, spotless & so comfortable! The kitchen comes with almost everything needed in a kitchen for the necessities and very spacious with a lot of pantry space The pool area has a large pool with 3 hot tubs and a fair amount of beach chairs Pool restaurant has good (but pricey) drinks A nice walkway out back by the ocean that’s easily accessible & makes for a nice walk at any point in the day The Westin definitely knows how build & manage hotels!!!

Dave Lin

This is a very nice resort in Ka’anapali We had a spacious two bedroom unit (ground floor building 8) that’s adjacent to the pool Kids were able to just walk out of the living room through the patio to the pool area

We loved the resort except for a few things The pool gets quite full and becomes too noisy even into the evening Whatever housekeeping use to clean the floors leaves a residue on the floor, we had to clean it again Overall a excellent resort

David Zimmerman

Worst customer service I have ever experienced They have a no smoking policy, which is great On morning four of our stay, we were abruptly awaken by a security guard repeatedly banging on our door

Upon answering, the guard, in a very rude and aggressive manner, stepped forward and shoved no smoking warning in my face Once I realized what they were talking about, I assured them that no one was smoking They continued to accuse us of smoking and aggressively entered my personal space with their mask only half covering their face I eventually invited them to enter our suite in order to prove our innocence Upon examining our suite and realizing that they made a mistake, their tone changed Fast forward three days After we checked out and arrived at the airport I received a revised bill from the hotel which included a $400 “Deep Clean” charge When I called the hotel and spoke to Joyce about the charge and my experience with the security guard, she was incredibly rude and unrelenting Now I have to spend a ton of my time debating our innocenceEven without this incident, I would not recommend this hotel There are a number of better options up and down the beach

This was a very nice resort Everything was pretty much open-air Being from the main land this was a surprise to us but was nice

They offered different classes during the day, which was nice I took advantage if the lei-making class Different types if leis were shown before teaching how, which was very interesting The restaurants in the resort were very good and we quickly learned that they required reservations The sunset view from our balcony was beautiful

Amy D

My husband and I stayed here in May and absolutely loved it! The resort is beautiful and we had so much fun! We would definitely stay againIt was in such a peaceful area and far exceeded our expectations The food at the restaurant was also really good and they offered a lot of activities at the resort

We recommend this resort to anyone who comes to Maui!

Vincenzo Pandolfi

Very disappointed in the room and mattresses We were put in a wheelchair accessible room, which is not what we booked They never made us aware at check in of this downgrade

This was very inconvenient for us The mattresses were absolutely horrible No support They did switch one out for us, but it was just as bad The beds are low to the ground with less support than the beds in the standard room next to us, which we paid for We paid a considerable amount of money and did not get this value in our stay We enjoyed everything else about the resort, but unfortunately a good night sleep is the most important part of a vacation, which we did not get All three of us staying in this room are experiencing a lot of back and neck pain due to the poor mattresses Don’t let them put you in room 6029!! We deserve some type of compensation for this issue that significantly had a negative impact on our stay

This one is tough to write When my family and I first arrived, we were welcomed into a beautiful, spacious room The balcony alone was breathtaking, plus the view

We immediately experienced an issue with the fridge/ice maker, but it was resolved quickly by the maintenance teamThe second afternoon we were there, we were eating dinner when my kids noticed an “ant” Then, they pointed out that there was a cockroach! Granted, I get it – coming from Florida, but it was not expectedThe hotel responded quickly and moved us to a new room, but the room was much smaller and had less of a view, even though they said it was the same in terms of square footage I’d argue that, but we made the best of the time we had thereThere wasn’t good communication about how to go about getting towels for the pool either I didn’t realize some have a wristband and can use the towel machines, whereas others have a card and have to request them from the shack, for the white towelsParking is also a nightmare in the garage if you self-park, and unfortunately they have low staffing it seems so valet took foreverThe rooms also need updating The sliding door wouldn’t open in one room, and the window coverings were stainedOverall, we made the best of our experience, but I don’t think this resort will be our first choice going back to Maui

Kiki Cooper

I’m mid stay here so will update at the end of the stayThey have no cleaning, despite the length of the stay no cleaning is done of the guest rooms Only when asking for a mop and bucket to be able to clean ourselves in this case, they let us know that they can clean if we request it 24 hours in advance

COVID is used as an excuse for the lack of cleaning but is difficult to believe when they have literally no other social distancing measures in placeWhen we checked in the toilet was clogged, housekeeping hadn’t done anything for this And both bath tubs were dirty The bedsheets also had stains on them Which makes it worse that they do no cleaning throughout the stay because they don’t even start you off with clean roomsRooms are also quite dated but the sofa and beds are comfortableService can be touch and go, sometimes people are really helpful and other times notI would not say that this was really a 4 star accommodation, it feels a lot more like 2/3The pools are nice, but are a bit small And people claim the sun loungers all day with towels despite not actually having intentions to go to the pool their belongings are never removed despite warning signsThe location is nice, and close to the super market and not too far from the other towns

Jake Laurrell

I’m kinda torn on this review It was probably going to get a 5/5 but the last day of our stay soured it a bitThe bad: The room we had was pretty outdated, but that’s not a huge deal

It was disappointing that they are not currently doing room cleanings Instead, you call for more towels or trash service — which is fine but there’s numerous daily fees that we still payThe no cleaning problem kinda showed itself on our last day We opened a kitchen cabinet and 2 cockroaches fell to the floor and scurried away I can’t help but assume that they are only there because of infrequent cleaningsThe good: Beautiful location, very convenient amenities, great staff Good restaurant on site Pools were nice and the beach nearby was amazingThis is definitely a family oriented resort, as there were many with young kids here For some that will be a pro, others not so muchWould be a 5/5 if the roaches didn’t show themselves after we were already turned off by the lack of cleaning services during our stay

Anna Herren

We had a great experience staying here 5 of us stayed in an ocean front, 2 bedroom condo It was up-to-date and the views were unbelievable

Location is very good Really close to Whaler’s Village (shopping and restaurants) and the beach is so nice Smaller waves, so good for swimming and stand up paddle boarding Not the best for snorkeling or body boarding, but a short drive will get you to several nearby beaches

Diane

This resort is fabulous! I was there for two weeks There is lots to see up and down the paved beach walkway My condo was on the 11th floor and I had a terrific view of both the mountains and the ocean

I literally saw whales 🐋 breaching while laying in the lovely king-size bed in my master suite The staff are very nice This was easily the best vacation I’ve ever had

Erika Botzum

This was a great place for the amount we spent There are fancier accommodations that charge accordingly, but we had a great location for navigating the island and a beautiful beach for boogie boarding and playing in the surf! The condo has great views, beds are comfortable and the items provided in the kitchen and for the beach were just right!

We ended our stay on Maui at the Montage, and we were absolutely spoiled from check-in to check-out! They upgraded us to a 3 bedroom, premier ocean-front condo (we had reserved a 2 bedroom) and it was pure luxury Rick helped us from the moment we made our reservation and was very responsive to any requests or questions we had and helped set up many of our activity and spa reservations The cabanas at the pool are a nice reprieve from the sun, but you also have chairs set up right next to your cabana rental if you want to soak up the rays

The pool staff was amazing and very attentive I would also recommend a meditation session with Ana She helped us understand the principles behind the meditation before guiding us on our journey A fabulous way to start your day! Cane & Canoe is the perfect place to grab breakfast or a romantic dinner On our last night, we chose in-room dining on our patio, and our server set everything up wonderfully Excellent food and another gorgeous sunset! Montage Kapalua Bay is luxury at its best with a top-notch staff, amazing activities, and fabulous on-site cuisine We most definitely will be back!!

I have been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you definitely won’t be disappointedThe Montage on Maui is a beautiful resort with great service and attention to detail The only area is may lack slightly in was the restaurant, I would only rate that as an 87/100Everything else seemed extremely wonderful!!😎👍

Lezlie Brackett

We LOVED this resort! We have stayed in many five star resorts and this was definitely near the top of the list The moment we walked in they greeted us with leis and escorted us to our room to find a hand made sign (with all of our kids’ names) on the wall in the entryway to our room to welcome us They were delighted! Then they were even more delighted to see milk and cookies waiting for them (and champagne for us)

Our suite was amazing We loved everything about it There were high end furnishings, plenty of room and a huge patio with an amazing view We felt right at home here The housekeeping services were awesome (and so nice to have both daily housekeeping and turn down service in this Covid world) We also loved having a kitchen and laundry room The room service was prompt The food was good The property was amazing The kids loved the pools which were all connected The beach had the best snorkeling we experienced anywhere right there on the property Top notch service and staff that remember your name We will definitely be back!
