Review By Linda B.

We stayed in unit 3-84. It is a two bedroom two bath unit with a den. The den has sliding doors, so it is not really a good "sleeping" room, but it adds an extra room with a queen bed if needed. Our family of two grandparents, two parents and two children until three stayed there for 7 nights. It works perfectly! Laundry is a plus with family.

Outdoor balcony is wonderful for relaxing. The view is not of the pool, but you do get to view the pool next door, and it is just as good. Seating for 6 inside at the dining table. A raised entry takes some getting used to, but the kids managed it. Beds were comfortable, living room has lots of furniture and "plants", but all workable. Big refrigerator, limited cooking pans, kitchen handled all the traffic.

Garage parking not far from the unit. The swimming pools are wonderful for children and adults alike. Elevators work quickly so the eight floor is not a problem. Plus you really need the 8th floor to get a good view. Balcony has view of mountains as well as the ocean. Lovely.

We would stay here again!

This was our second trip to Maui and our second time staying at the Alii. We looked around but couldn't find another location that gave us what we wanted for the price we wanted. The condo is very comfortable and roomy. We stayed with two adults, three teens and a tween and everyone could spread out. The condo is well outfitted with bath towels, pool towels, pans & dishes, and boogie boards. We like the Alii because it isn't overcrowded and has a low key vibe. This time we took advantage of the grills out by the pool twice and really enjoyed that amenity. We would definitely stay here again.

Great grandparents, grandparents, parents and baby all stayed in this 3 bedroom condo. We all agree we would rent this place again in a heartbeat! There was plenty of space in each bedroom and on the lanai, a fabulous view, on the beach, and great pool area for all ages. The grounds were VERY well kept and this place is within walking distance to all the fun hang out spots. We used the BBQ area many times and it was always clean and inviting. The staff was excellent and very helpful. Everything represented in the pictures was as presented. The ONLY recommendation we have is more wine glasses and a set of smaller plastic cups. We had a wonderful, memorable stay celebrating a birthday. Thank you!!!

This is our fourth year in a row at the Alii. We didn't go through Classic as they wouldn't allow more than 6 per room. Another couple with their two children joined us giving a total of 7, which was allowed through this booking. I was a bit concerned after reading other reviews so I'll straighten out a few items from previous reviews. 
1) All of the beds were comfortable, no complaints from anyone
2) Better wine glasses would be nice, but this is exactly what we have seen for wine glasses in every other Alii suite that we have stayed in.
3) The bathrooms were up to date, have been renovated.
4) The condo was spotless on arrival, looked like the carpets had been just steamed.
5) As far as updates go, this is in the middle, we have had one with way more updates, one with way fewer and one that was about the same.
6) We missed the pool towel service but quickly became accustomed to it. The dryer takes a while to dry 6 towels at once, so does every other dryer. The washer dryer team is getting a bit long in the tooth, but nothing that you can't work around.
7) We really didn't see a lot of difference in how this condo was equipped verses any other condo that we have stayed in at the Alii.

The view from the lanai is great, you catch both the mountains and the ocean on the Marriot side of the Alii. Not much to say about the Alii other that there is a reason why we have come back here four years in a row, the condos, the space and the staff are fantastic, and there is a reason why we looked around at how to get in here with 7 people in the room. Maui Beachfront was a pleasure, a lull in bookings the day we left so we were able to extend checkout for an extra day of lazing around before catching the red eye (for a reasonable price of course)!

If you have a booking coming up and are reading reviews, relax, you'll like this place. If you are thinking of booking, this is a great choice.

This condo is exactly what we were looking for! There were three couples and we had the right amount of space for everyone to enjoy time doing what they wanted as well as spend time together. I was a little bit apprehensive after reading some of the other comments, but as soon as we arrived that all disappeared. The condo is well maintained and we had no complaints with anything. The beach towels that are included in the property are fine for what we needed them for. The pool towels are not included in the rental; however, what is included is the terry-cloth chaise covers. I did not know this until the last day and I wish someone would have let me know sooner. The covers make lounging at the pool more comfortable. You are given a reserved parking space which is covered. There are a couple of beach chairs, an umbrella and a boogie board. We never used them, but they are in the laundry room. The washer and dryer are stacked and you cannot expect to fill them up as much as you would at home. Afterall, this is Hawaii and a few t-shirts, shorts and swimsuits are all that you should bring with you anyway! Also, there is a safe in the room, however, we were never able to get it to lock. The knives are not very sharp, but we got along just fine; there were only two stemmed wine glasses, but we used another type of glass; no one complained that the beds were uncomfortable, in fact everyone slept really well; dish soap, etc. are included.

We did have a problem with the dishwasher but one call and someone was over to get it taken care of for us. It did take a couple of days to get the problem completely fixed, but we made do with washing by hand.

We bought food at Costco (A MUST). We bought steaks, chicken, sausages, etc. and cooked on the grills by the pool. What a fun time! You get to meet people from all over the world and share your food and experiences with each other. This was one of the best things we did! We also rented beach cabanas for a couple of days - very relaxing.

The location of this property is amazing! You will find something for everyone in this central location. Snorkeling at Black Rock (we saw a turtle); shopping/eating at Whaler's Village, beach, etc.

Maui Beachfront Rentals personnel made this vacation one of the best we have had. They were always very helpful, considerate, and easy to work with. Everyone at the Kaanapali Alii were likewise some of the best people around and we are already planning our next visit!

Just got back from our stay, and I'd jump right back on a plane and do it again if I could. The condo had everything my family needed and then some. It was roomier than we thought it was going to be. The beach just out back was phenomenal. The kids had blast in the water everyday. The resort was well-maintained (The dyer took a little extra time to dry. You may want to replace at some point). The pool looked brand new. They must have just got done refurbishing it. There are nice restaurants in walking distance, with more than a few different choices. Been to Maui a few times. This is the best side of the island to visit.

Review by Bob B.

I always wanted to come to Maui, and experience a oceanfront experience. The Alii did not disappoint. Brought the whole family of five, and we fit very comfortably into the spacious condo. My wife and I were surprised by how new and clean everything looked - nearly new TV, new bedding, kitchen appliances, even the couch and stools were in excellent shape. We have been in some condos on vacation in the past, and they were just beat to heck, or falling apart. No so here. The kids really enjoyed the big pool, going between that and the beach constantly. Lost of cool shops in the Whalers village, which is in easy walking distance, and of course I had to try the nearby Kaanapali Golf course, twice. Careful on those tricky par 3's! A perfect condo to enjoy what Maui has to offer.
