"Best bet for both your wallet and Maui experience!"
It is no secret that Ka'anapali beach is the GO-TO beach of Maui, so it's definitely a bonus if you are living RIGHT NEXT to it. Don't be fooled by the surrounding beaches - they are nice, but they aren't Ka'anapli beach. Double bonus-Black Rocks just a few minutes walk. KBH locates right along Ka'anapali beach, sandwiched between Sheraton Maui and The Whalers' Village (a tourist shopping mall). Black Rock is located outside of Sheraton Maui, hence you just have to walk to the hotel next door, and you are right there (5 min). Snorkling is best right next to Black Rock too, as it's almost a guarantee to see sea turtles and tons of fish (we saw sea turtles every time we went snorkeling next to Black Rock). The hotel staff is super friendly, and this really is the MOST HAWAIIAN HOTEL in Hawaii. More importantly, if you drive an electric vehicle, you will be glad to know that it has 4 Lv 3 EV Charging Stations on site (as per Maui EV rental source maps) - unfortunately, I wasn't able to verify since I wasn't renting a vehicle for this trip. Here's a little secret - food is super expensive in Maui esp. going for seafood (fish), but not with KBH (plus a 20% discount for guests), and it tasted quite good! Oh, they will give you a quick goodbye party with Hawaiian nuts necklace when you leave - isn't that nice? KBH also has tons of freebies and activities for kids too (plus a lot of free bottled water, a luxury in Maui), so they will enjoy the stay (my kids did).
