Easton, Pennsylvania465 contributions225 helpful votes
First time staying here as the Outrigger. The hotel was 80% filled with locals so we were very cautious. Some locals were camping on the beach in front of the hotel (and other hotels) as a silent protest. We were here when it was the KBH in December of 22. This time we paid 3 times as much as we did then for the same type of room. Didn't see as many of the old time employees but so glad to see Aunty Mal and had lovely chats with her. They have a continental breakfast for $31 and then the little kiosk where you can get limited breakfast items which did include cheese omlets that were pretty good. The Maui Brewing Company, on site, has a very limited menu and you order at the bar and seat yourself. There was a condiment table that you helped yourself to. They gave us room 666, which we did not want, but, took, anyway. On our anniversary, we couldn't get back into our room from dining out and it took almost 2 hours before they could fix it. The whole time we were there, the message light on the phone kept flashing and no one could turn it off. Our view was lovely. Still, a VERY cold pool, and no hot tub. There are rumors they are going to build 2-3 pools but that will take up all the grassy areas under the trees, which we love. Not sure we will stay here again. For just a little more money, we can get a really nice room at the Sheraton. The employees were nice and very supportive. We made sure we tipped housekeeping every day, and not just change. We got notes and cards every day thanking us, so we knew we were helping, which is what we wanted to do.

Hotel's Favourite
When we arrived, the friendly faces and aloha greetings were appreciated after a long day of travel. Our room was ready, very clean, quiet and comfortable with a larger bath than most hotels. The ocean view was beautiful and appreciated all day long. The property location was great for a short walk to Whalers Village for food or shopping. The lei kukui song and small ceremony by the cultural center was a nice finishing touch.

I have taken to calling this place the Motel 6 of Hawaii. No hot tub, the pool water is so cold that we don't use it, and it sits empty almost all of the time. We were told we had been "upgraded" and were given a small room with no microwave and a minifridge so mini it would be laughable if not for the frustration of such a tiny appliance. Just a second rate experience all the way, and yet they charge from the mid 500's up to 700 per day. And today they told us they are closing the parking lot near our room for the week, so we get to hike around a quarter mile to reach our room. We walked next door last night and checked out the grounds of the Sheraton. They had a heated pool, a hot tub, lovely plants adorning the paths, and when I checked out their prices today it is actually a bit cheaper to stay there. All I can say to those who are considering the Kaanapali beach area of Maui is steer clear of the Outrigger Kaanapali Beach Resort if you want a first rate experience.

We have stayed here many times over the last 14 years when it was the KBH and love the staff, location and rooms. There were definitely some growing pains we encountered during our stay due to the switch to Outrigger. We had booked our rooms when the hotel was still KBH and I called Outrigger a week before our arrival just to confirm everything. When we arrived we were told by the front desk that one of our room choices "was not available for that night". When I asked why as we had booked the rooms 8 months prior, had pre-paid for five nights and had called to confirm I was simply told, "it's just not available." We have two young adult children so they were moved to a king bed for one night instead of the double we had booked. Not a huge deal but having to check in and then know you are going to move to a different room the next day meant they couldn't really unpack or get settled. We've never had an issue when booking two rooms of having them located on the same floor and they are usually side-by-side. This time not only was one of our room choices not available the first night but they could not get us on the same floor. I was a little disappointed that nothing was offered to us to make up for the room issue (like a voucher for the breakfast). One of the reasons we loved KBH is that it didn't try to be a "resort". It seemed more like a quaint beach hotel. Outrigger is now operating this as a "resort" and will charge a resort fee. If they want to be a resort then more amenities need to be included (thinking bottled water in the rooms, robes, a workout facility, etc.) We priced some of the other resorts on the beach in comparison and found that for not much more you could stay at the Westin, Sheraton, Hyatt and have the full resort experience with the bigger pools, spas, more restaurants, etc. Other than the room mixup the first night our stay was fine. We enjoyed the beach hospitality offered by the Aqualani group. The staff went above and beyond to help us. Housekeeping was great (as always) and the cultural staff is top-notch. The hotel grounds are beautifully kept and the location on the beach is one of the best in Ka'anapali.

We traveled to Ka'anapali Beach Resort with our extended family for Christmas. The first night was a bit rocky because we were all exhausted getting to the hotel at 10pm after the long journey to find that most of our rooms had 1 bed (we all had kids with us). But the staff was helpful and found new rooms for those of us that needed it (with kids). That was truly the only hiccup of the stay and the staff addressed. The location is FABULOUS and I love that Maui Brewing has a location there. Easy walk to Whaler's Village for coffee or food/shopping. The housekeeping staff was lovely and did a great job. On Christmas morning the staff sang Christmas carols around the property which was delightful. It is a special place, close to black rock for snorkeling. The staff at Aqualina hut for towels and chairs/umbrellas (as well as excursions) were so nice. There are also a lot of displaced families still living at the hotel (and others in the area) due to the fires. Maui is still healing and we wish them all the best.

This was a great resort, especially for my husband and I during our first visit to Maui. The location is fantastic and right on the beach. There are outdoor showers, a great pool, and nice rooms. I read other reviews that said the rooms were outdated, but ours was just fine. We loved sitting on the balcony on days when it was too rainy to swim at the beach. It was also very convenient to walk along the beachfront sidewalk to get to Whaler’s Village for dinner or shopping (I can’t walk very far at all due to joint issues, etc., and this walk was perfectly fine for me). All of the employees we encountered were friendly and helpful. We chose to valet park since it was only $6 more, and I’m glad we did—the valet staff were always very quick to get our vehicle or offer advice when they found out where we were going. I took off one star because of the breakfast, which was a ridiculous $30 per person and not even that great. For a resort this big, either get better $30 per person quality food or lower the price to $15, which is what that breakfast was probably worth. Besides that, we have no complaints about our stay whatsoever. We would absolutely stay here again!

This hotel is outdated yet located right near the beach which is amazing! Check in was easy, yet checking out took much longer than expected! We also had a noise complaint called against us which is absolutely ridiculous! We were only watching TV at a reasonable sound and it was only 8:30pm

Having read some of the more recent reviews I was hesitant about my stay however from the moment I arrived I instantly relaxed. I stayed at two Outrigger properties on my trip (the other on Oahu) and KB was by far the superior of the two. My room had recently been renovated and was well thought out - even with a bedside USB-c! The staff were friendly and helpful and the whole vibe was relaxed and Hawaiian. The area has been through a rough time (the journey from the airport was quite poignant) that will take time to recover but to start visitors need to start to go back too to help economically. Be sensitive and support Maui based initiatives. The leaving Lei ceremony was fantastic!

Ka anapali beach hotel as we've known it for years is gone.... We've spent many a anniversary here. This was our 28th anniversary. Now that outrigger owns it, prices have gone up, and now charge $35 a day resort fee on top of the already high rates. Corporate greed on full display here.
