Kaanapali Beach Club Reviews
The Kaanapali Beach Club (formerly the popular Embassy Suites Maui) is now a time-share resort. They offer a few rooms for general reservations, primarily to present the property to prospective time-share buyers like you. The Kaanapali Beach Club offers 1 bedroom mini-suite accommodations. The comfort of the units is the attraction. The rooms have separate bedrooms, large screen entertainment centers, wet-bar, and microwave ovens. The pool is a big attraction of the resorts. The huge pool has a fun water slide which is fun for the kids.

"Great location. Very frustrating check-in. The process put me off at this resort. Location is great. Stayed in two units. First on was very dated and above building A/C units. Very noisy and fumes were bad. Second unit was nicely refurbished and nicer. Pool and beach were the selling features of this resort. Staff were good except for check-in." – Ted from Vancouver Island, British Columbia
"I stayed at this hotel/times-hare condo for a week and found it a drab of a place! The other surrounding hotels are much happier and the hotels are more modern. This is a run downed, unkempt, dark and dank environment. No aloha spirit there! I enjoyed the beautiful island and all the outside activities the island has to offer but at the end of the day this hotel made my vacation seem like I was staying at the local Super 8. I do not recommend wasting your money or time. A quaint B & B would have been more accommodating and relaxing and a better Maui vacation experience." – Steven from Astoria, Oregon
"I found the room accommodations to be adequate and comfy but the staff and processes of staying there are inconvenient and annoying. We came across road blocks around every corner with this company! When we asked for butter pats for our meal, they charged us an extra 25 cents per pat of butter! This seems ludicrous to me! They did not replace and provide more coffee filters in our room, we had to buy those too. The housekeeping staff kept walking in on us. The last morning we were there prior to our check-out time to see if we had left yet. The pool is very cold and the hot tub is extremely small and always seems to be packed, so using it was very difficult. We had our wedding reception in the hotels restaurant but experienced much difficulty there with accommodating the 17 people in our party, wanting to charge us rental fees to eat in their dining room, and the manager told us that though they would serve us there “you wont get the same amount of service because our waiters will be busy with other tables and cant focus only on you and your group.” He was argumentative and rude, even telling us at one point that we could take our business elsewhere and “that was fine” by him. The halls are grouted tile so you wake up very early (5:00am) to the sound of carts being wheeled down the halls, clanging and banging. Our “ocean-view room” was partially right….it looked directly onto the backside of its neighboring property and if you looked to the left, you could see some ocean. The worst part is the sales pitch from the time-share staff. Brutal. So glad we got out after an hour and a half!" – Heather from Salem, Oregon
"We were very happy with our recent stay at KBC. The room was large and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful (with a couple minor exceptions – more later). The pool is big with lots of seating. Beach is wonderful but there was a lot of loose coral rolling around, banging into our ankles. The room has a partial kitchen (no stove/oven) and with the toaster, blender, fry pan and dishwasher. We could handle breakfast, lunch and snacks. On-site BBQs were great for grilling. There’s a grocery a block away. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was huge. Balcony had a great view. My only complaint would be that the TV reception was fuzzy. Probably just a loose cable connection but we didn’t go there to watch TV anyway. There’s coin-op laundry on even floors. My only complaints on the staff were with a mix-up on the housekeeping schedule and with the time-share presentation. The presentation itself wasn’t all that bad – the usual arm-twisting and emotional blackmail. But if you can say “No” and hold your ground you’ll be fine. What I didn’t like was that they take a “deposit” for $75 on your credit card when you sign up and you don’t get it back until the thing is over. But the rewards were gift certificates that were good at a bunch of places all over the island, which was pretty cool. And the housekeeping thing was because we were there 10 days and the schedule is built for 7 – threw their computer into a fit. Not a big deal but it took 4 phone calls to get them to send somebody up to vacuum. Otherwise, they were pleasant and helpful just as you would expect from a high-quality resort. They do have two restaurants open – one snack bar type and one larger menu out of the bar. And within walking distance by the grocery there are 3-4 restaurants including pizza and a Mexican place. There’s a breakfast buffet but it was a little “spendy” so we never tried it. Looked good. All-in-all, we would go back. We might even consider buying a time-share." – Judy from Seattle, Washington
