This is a very well-run condo property with particularly competent staff. Their beach is a winner. The pools are pleasant with a designated quiet pool. If you don’t love to cook but love to eat, some weekend nights they have a grill master who will season (from the on-site herb garden) your food and grill it with you for free—sweet! (You supply the food; they supply the plates and utensils.)

Rooms are spacious with mostly upscale furnishings. The oceanfront units (which are corner condos) have particularly dreamy views from second or higher floors. There are four 11-story buildings: 1 and 3 are closest to the water, but some views may be partially blocked by palm fronds, and units in other buildings may face the ocean more directly. You have charging privileges at some of the nearby resorts. Grocery delivery service is available for a fee, and there is a small sundries shop that also has sandwiches and salads. Room service is available from the Westin.

They have a 3,000-sq.-ft., state-of-the-art fitness room (personal trainers and fitness classes are also available for a fee). Massage services can be arranged through the concierge in private rooms at the fitness center. Private tennis lessons are also available. There’s a free kids’ program June through August only. Oddly, they charge $0.75 for local calls.

Ka‘anapali Ali‘i has a calm, spacious, very luxurious feel, but it’s not cheap. The 1,388-sq.-ft. 1/2s are $495–$665, the 1,893-sq.-ft. 2/2s are $745–$975. 3-night minimum. They often have specials and packages.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just want to say I am very impressed with the information in this book. It’s just about perfect… I purchased my dream Hawaii vacation in July for a December departure so your book is invaluable to me as far as planning activities, and helping me budget before I go. And you’re local, so I know I’m getting the inside scoop. This book and the internet work great. And the maps in the book! What can I say about the maps – in color, good scale, ingenious! Definitely puts you ahead of the competition. Thanks for the amusing and HONEST commentary within. The incredible color photos… Thank you again for publishing a fantastic travelogue.”
