    I had the pleasure of staying at the Whaler while on an assignment and couldn't have asked for anything better. The spacious condominiums come with a complete kitchen, daily maid service and a private lanai with amazing views of Ka'anapali Beach. I had to work late into the night over several days, and these accommodations provided everything I needed. Work became pleasure.

    So if you're in Hawaii, you're probably already loving it. You get off the plane and you want a nice relaxing vacation on a beach, with a pool, good food, and close to activities. Well that's the Whaler. This was the first hotel I ever stayed at in Hawaii, and it's been a nostalgic place ever since. The beach out front is awesome. Restaurants and shops very close by. A golf course right up the street for those willing to splurge. And a Luau within walking distance, that I had a lot of fun at. This was a great location and a great hotel. Definitely what Hawaii is all about.

    Prime location right on Kaanapali Beach! I stayed in a 10th floor studio with an ocean view, and it was amazing! While the decor inside is pretty dated, it's still very cozy and the grounds are immaculate. The staff is super accommodating!

    The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is perfectly located between nature and technology. During the days, walk along the shoreline and sunbathe on the sands of Black Rock beach. And during the evenings, head on over to Whaler's Village and grab a drink, a bite to eat and a live musical treat. With that in mind, hopefully you will be too distracted to see that this property is in dire need of a makeover. Unfortunately, each condo in the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is privately owned, which means the rooms are destined to stay untouched until ownership is relinquished. But if you're anything like me, you'll come to appreciate the Three's Company decor and give a chuckle each time you enter your room, which shouldn't be often considering the amount of activities in and around this west-side hotel.

    The furniture and appliances were really in need of an update but I have come to expect this of privately owned condo resorts. You just never know what you're going to get. Regardless, I was won over by superior views. Whales were leaping out of the ocean all over the place, kids were frolicking on the beach below, the sun’s rays were shooting out from behind the dark clouds. It was all clearly visible from the cozy balcony high above the carefully manicured gardens and action packed pool. Another bonus is that the hotel is walking distance to Whaler’s Village, which is full of good food choices, live music right on the waterfront, shopping (Louis Vuitton!) and more. There is also a full gym on site if you need to get your fix of pumping iron in for the day.
