I would go back to Napili Kai in a hot minute. Beautiful grounds, wonderful pools, friendly staff, comfortable rooms and easy access to my two favorite beaches in the world- Kapalua and Napili Bay. Not to mention the free Lei making, the Mai Tai party and the slack key guitar concert. Also close to The Gazebo, a restaurant that feature macadamia nut pancakes. Yummy!

Been staying here for 3 years in a row. Good location to many activities. Good staff, Good ground keeping, Good access to beach and Good access to shops & restaurants. However, if I have one thing to complain, its the Wifi. It's fair, but not strong. Would recommend and would come back!!

Love this hotel!!! This is our 3rd stay. We always enjoy ourselves and this time was no different. However we noticed that there are a few things that need to be updated and some of the staff seems to have a lack of urgency over all we love it still. The one thing they need is better pillows. I know seems trivial but they are bad :(
