    The gorgeous grounds of Honua Kai Resort & Spa occupy a good chunk of Ka'anapali Beach along the western coast of Maui – a location that previous guests just can't help but praise. As for the experience of staying here, travelers have mixed feelings. Honua Kai's suite-style accommodations come equipped with full kitchens, ample living space and balconies or terraces; however, some recent travelers say that some of the balconies' ocean vistas leave much to be desired. And while visitors were generally pleased with the resort's atmosphere, they say to look elsewhere if you're seeking a more romantic ambiance, as this property is popular among families and some partiers. It's easy to see why: Not only can the rooms house larger groups, but the resort also boasts a pool with an accompanying water park. Should you need a break from the family bustle, the Ho'ola Spa can easily serve as a place of refuge.

    The Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas

    • Free WiFi

    About 32 miles west of Kahului Airport, the Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas overlook thesandy beaches on Maui's northwestern tip. The resort's studios and one- and two-bedroom villas are each outfitted with a washer and dryer and a kitchen or kitchenette. Prior to your arrival, you may pre-order groceries online, which Westin staff will place in your villa. The property also houses three distinct restaurants, as well as two markets where you can stock up if you run low on supplies. Recent guests who traveled as a family praise the resort's outdoor swimming pools and water slide, but suggest choosing a villa away from the pool, as the sounds of children playing can become irritating if you're looking for a romantic or quiet getaway. Should you require an extra dose of peace and quiet, you can always make an appointment at the in-house Spa Helani. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Sitting about 4 miles south of the Kapalua Airport along the Kaanapali Coast, The Westin Maui Resort & Spa feels more like a theme park then a resort. The property features 87,000-square-foot network of five separate pools joined by swim-through grottos, waterfalls and even a giant waterslide – giving nearby resorts a run for their money. But this Westin property will appeal to couples as well thanks to its Heavenly Spa and luxurious guest rooms. Accommodations here are dressed in creamy hues and feature Westin's signature Heavenly beds, HD flat-screen TVs and private lanais (balconies). With such a wide appeal, it's not surprising that travelers complain of dense crowds; in other words, you'll need to get up as early as 7 a.m. if you want a chair to lounge in around the aforementioned pool. And with so many travelers to please, the customer service here isn't always up to Marriott standards, some visitors say. Others say the price is high for what you get, but if you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can cut costs by earning and redeeming points here.

    The Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is located along the coast of Ka'anapali, built into the cliffs of a small cove near the legendary "Black Rock" hardened lava formation, one of Maui's favorite snorkeling spots. Most of these Sheraton rooms and suites also boast ocean views, as well as flat-screen TVs and private balconies. The Sheraton does impose a resort fee, but that gets you "free" internet access in your room, access to an area shuttle and more. A stay here will also grant you access to the Sheraton's pool and The Spa at Black Rock, not to mention several restaurants. Recent guests found the property to be "beautiful," the rooms "spacious and comfortable" and the service "accommodating and pleasant," though several guests mentioned that the bathrooms are tiny. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    • Free WiFi

    Located on Maui's west coast (next to The Westin Maui Resort), Kaanapali Alii is a tried and true favorite among families. The accommodations at this resort are larger than your standard hotel room — making them comfortable for those traveling with kids in tow — and come equipped with homey amenities like separate living and dining areas, private balconies, multiple bathrooms and fully equipped kitchens. Guests also have complimentary access to Kaanapali Alii's movie lending library. But we doubt you'll want to spend that much time indoors. This resort houses a laundry list of facilities for the whole family to enjoy, including outdoor grills for barbecues, easy access to the beach (and a wealth of water sports equipment), multiple pools (including one especially designed for children), tennis courts and a full-service spa. You won't find a full-service restaurant here — however, the on-site Sundry Store offers a wide array of food items available for purchase, and The Westin's eateries are just a short walk away.
