My room was in the small hotel on the far side of the property. We reserved an ocean view room...and BOY WAS IT!! We were about 50 yards from the ocean looking straight out at it. We saw whales and had easy access to a great beach! The room was a big open concept with a sink, counter and refrigerator available to us beyond that in the bathroom, and with the exception of a rather small shower, I was incredibly happy with it. There was a patio to sit and look at the water...much like the pic you see here. I want to go back...IMMEDIATELY!!! I didn't get a chance to use the restaurant in the main building, or the beautiful golf course on the property. Future plans for sure!!

The location was amazing. The property was on the beach and was steps away from our room. The room has no AC so it was blazing hot. They had 3 fans in the room but was still cooking in the room. The bed was comfortable, it was just really hot in the room.

Kaanapali Ocean Inn is in a pretty great location. View from our rooms was awesome and beach was very easy to get to. The staff were friendly and helpful. Amenities from the Royal Lahaina were super close and great. Unfortunately, I gave such a low rating because the fact that the room had no air conditioning made our trip miserable. The hotel was great and let us know that there was in fact no AC well in advance but I thought the fans they provided would have helped or that there would be some breeze, but there really wasn't. Don't expect for the nights to cool off and to relax after a day in the sun. Maybe staying here in the winter months would be better. Some folks complained about the nightly Luau. I didn't think it was that bad. From our room you could see part of the show and it was kind of neat. It ends pretty early in the evening too so it wasn't bothersome. The other reason for the low review is the bathrooms. I expected the room to be a little outdated but the bathroom ceiling tiles look like their falling apart and the shower is looking pretty rough.

I knew it wasn’t a air conditioned I also knew that they supplied fans which is great but if someone isn’t use to this you’ll be miserable! I called the front desk to see what the cost would be to switch to an air conditioned room and the difference was $300 more per night for us this was a $2750 difference! No joke also they were sold out so even if we wanted we couldn’t. Also the luau was right next to us this was awesome we got to somewhat view every night also the barbecue pit for the pig the smell at 4 am you’ll dream of beacon !! They cleaned our room every day only if we wanted them to which we did due to using the shower 2xs a day due to heat. The concierge services amazing!! They scheduled us a taxi at 5 am to go to the airport in time ! They go above and beyond Maria in the restaurant awesome & uncle Toni he’s been at that hotel for 50 yrs the ice cream shop some workers were nice some a little rude but overall absolutely the best hotel service!! Be advised you can’t check in till 4 and no earlier!! We tried they will hold your luggage but it would of been nice to check in earlier
