Great Week at Napili Kai Beach Resortfrom jverdun
Stayed at Napili Kai this past June 2004 and going back this Nov. 2004. Excellent, clean, fun and beautiful beach. The Sea House resurant is great! A little pricey but, the food is scrumptous. Go see the Kiki show on Tue. night. Very cute show and the kids were great!
Stayed in room #4, with no AC but, didn't need it whatsoever with the ocean breeze. I'll tell ya....it's better than the ocean views and about a 10 second walk to the water. In fact they are the best rooms in that section on the whole place if you are a serious beach goer. The snorkeling is really good. Need more sea life there but, it's a fun snorkel. I'm a scuba diver so I guess I'm spoiled.
Oh and about bugs there.......when you walk into the lobby, it's all open in there. The doors never shut. Of course bugs are going to walk in. It's Maui!! Can't get around that in any resort unless they bug bomb every week. Every place I've stayed on Maui has an assortment of bug critters. I had more roaches in my rental car than at Napili Kai. Actually I saw no roaches at Napili!
I totally recommend Napili Kai Beach Resort. I will continue to stay there. It's quiet, romantic and the sunsets are the BEST on Maui with the view of Molokai' and Lanai.'

It is low rise, low-key and very relaxed. The extras: morning coffee and pineapple at the beach cabana, the weekly putting party with bargain drinks, the weekly mai tai party, tours of the garden and much more. Most rooms offer a kitchette which can save you a bundle of $$$ in meals.
It is not glitzy and sanitized like the big luxury hotels where you are 1 of a 1000+ guests, no disco, no stuffed shirt dining room.
If you want an old style Hawaii experience then stay here.
Almost Heaven but Not Quitefrom weekiwacheekid
food but avoid the lamb chops.
First some positives: the beach is great. We spent our whole first day there reading, getting some sun, snorkeling, boogie boarding etc. Definitely a plus. The restaurant had good food, although the service was lacking. Also, the employees were very good.
The room was a bit dated, felt a bit worn. We had a great view of the gardens and a peek of the ocean from our balcony. The big problem were the bugs. Yes, we were in a tropical climate but having roaches in the room with you (we found one dead on the floor and saw one scurrying along) is NEVER fun. Called to let the front desk know that we were leaving and they offered us another room on the same floor of the building. Went to check it out and right as we walked in there were atleast 6 beetles on the floor. Long story short, we ended up moving to the Hyatt Regency and getting a great oceanview room at a discounted rate (the manager was kind enough to give us the local rate or else we would have been charged $260/night).
In short, Napili Kai is a great location, decent price, decent rooms, but watch out for all the 6 legged friends that may come creeping along. Hope our experience was an isolated one. :)
Lovely beach, lovely resort.from A TripAdvisor Member
1)The restaurant is great. The food is nothing to write home about, but the location is wonderful--right on the water. We had breakfast there every day and it's a great place to grab a fruity "girl-drink" in the evening.
2)The staff is great, especially the concierge. The gal we worked with was so helpful to us, helping us decide on and booking activities for our vastly differing needs. One of the best, by the way, and not to be missed: The Feast at Lele in Lahaina. Do not go to any other luau. This is the only one worth your time and money! It is wonderful!
3)There was a decent kitchen in the room. The fridge was full-size, so we were able to keep all of our leftovers in there and we could heat them up right there in our kitchen! (I don't remember how we did it--did we have a stove or a microwave? It was a while ago!)
There weren't really any! If you're looking for glamour and fancy poolside massages, head up to the next bay--Kapalua. If you want a low-key resort with a gorgeous, un-crowded beach, stick with Napili Kai. It's a great place to be.
Top Local Tips for Lahaina
KUNO'S RESTAURANT FOR DINNER - PLAN TO ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 5:30 SO THAT YOU CAN GET A TABLE FACING THE "BLUE PACIFIC"
wonderful shops If you go shopping go early and lunch on the beach
Buy the insurance Oh my god, our rental car war totally boogered up after a week of tiny tiny parking places and high, gusting winds pulling car doors open. GET THE INSURANCE. Best thing we did.....
