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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

My first time to Maui and I stayed here July 13, 2013 - July 18, 2013. I just read some of the recent reviews, including a very negative review due to outdated decor in room. Fortunately, I stayed in a recently renovated room which was lovely. I don't think I would have found Napili Kai worth the money had we... More

When we checked in, the staff was so friendly and helpful. The resort has an amazing view! It feels very "Hawaiian" -the decor, beautiful flowers, and the way it sits along with the surroundings (not a huge high rise). We loved being so close to the beach and ocean. I loved that they even had solar panels! They had great... More

We stayed in an oceanfront studio at Napili Kai that we booked through Donna Bender of MauiCalls. It was absolutely fabulous! I still tell my husband that the oceanfront café/bar has the most spectacular view I've ever seen, and we travel a great deal, nationally and internationally. We can never thank Donna enough for recommending Napili Kai to us, and... More
