We spent a couple of days unwinding in unpretentious Paia. We booked this hotel through Expedia. It had received great reviews and the pictures looked very inviting. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by two of the amazing staff as soon as we got out of the taxi. They showed us our room (very nice) and offered us an upgrade since they'd had a cancellation (even nicer). The cost was reasonable and worth every penny. The staff was friendly and helpful. They really wanted to do everything they could to make our time their enjoyable.
Overall we were very pleased with our stay. The staff was very helpful and absolutely terrific. Many hotels sat off the beach while this one appeared to be a bit closer. We had an ocean front room overlooking the Infinity Pool and the views of the pool and the ocean were gorgeous. Sitting on the lanai could get a bit warm in the afternoon when the sun was out.
We would definitely consider staying here again.
"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).
The hotel rooms had been recently and nicely renovated, the hotel staff was very accomodating, and my kids absolutely loved the daily onsite children's activities. My family enjoyed our stay on the property.
