My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Napili Kai and it is difficult to put into words how unbelievably amazing it was! After a long flight and a few layovers we arrived late at night, exhausted. We were received with kindness and a prompt check in and to our surprise, and upgrade to a beachfront suite. We woke up...

we stayed here for 8 days for our anniversary and it was FABULOUS. We stayed in the Lani 2 building with an ocean view studio. Very nice accommodations however no AC which I will agree normally isn't a problem, however it was very HOT the week we were there and zero breeze so it was rather sticky at night even...

I visited Napili Kai as a child and had good memories of the property, so it was my first choice when taking the family to Maui earlier this month. I called the hotel directly to book, since discount rates appear to be non-existent in high season, and after explaining my needs was booked into an "ocean view studio" in the...

Napoli Kai beach resort is located on a sandy beach bay. The resort is smaller, quiet and kid friendly. The Puna point building and Puna 2 bldg, on the north side if the property, have been completed renovated. Full kitchen, oven, fridge, laundry give you versatility, especially when travelling with children. The Sea house restaurant has delicious meals and if...

Wow - that's all I can say (but TA requires a few more comments :-). A good friend recommended Napili Kai with out hesitation and now I know why. We had a ground floor, Beach Front Studio with walk out lanai then beautiful ocean. The room was spacious with a kitchenette and large bathroom. We were in the Honolua buidling...

We just got back from our Maui trip. We initially chose a Oceanview studio, but when we got there we decide to upgrade to a Oceanfront room for $100 more as they had one available. Our room was in the Puna II and was very lovely...only thing I could complain was that the kitchen knives really sucked. Our view was...

Had a great stay here on TA advice - and it was totally accurate. We had one of the new renovation buildings facing the water, and loved our stay. A beautiful beach right out the front door, a great patio to lay out on - in fact, I loved our ground floor room, because the give you chaise lounges; the...

I have stayed here several times over the past 20 years, at several different price points. Laid back low-rise units. Great location with a great snorkeling bay. Recently remodeled, units are better than ever. All units are close to beach, most with ocean view or ocean front. No complaints with any location. Great restaurant. Bar has an unbelievable bay and...

First let me say how beautiful the location is and amazing the beach is! Okay so on to the bumps we were with a large part about 20 people who had rooms all in a row, one room was not available on our last night at that person had to move. Why because someone who has a fractional ownership was...

The setting is extremely beautiful, and the beach and water (calm surf) spectacular. The room could have been updated but still it was comfortable. Sitting out on the lanai was peaceful with a great view of the water. I could see that access to a kitchen is desirable but I did not use it as was traveling solo . Staff...
