Review by Emelia P.

Escaping winter’s grasp on the Canadian prairie, our family enjoyed the vacation of a lifetime in Maui this January. We had the luxury of staying at the marvelous Whaler on Kaanapali. Being on the 12th (top) floor in this spacious, tastefully decorated corner suite was truly remarkable.

Spacious is a bit of an understatement, as the suite was shockingly large with a superb design conducive to both privacy and socialization. Tasteful is also a bit of an understatement, as the suite’s decor was as breathtaking as the beach/ocean view that was just steps away. The children enjoyed the large pool and hot tub. In fact, they spent as much time at the pool as in the ocean. I asked the children what they enjoyed most about our trip and their quick reply was ‘the place we stayed, it rocked! When can we go back?’. We all enjoyed the modern appliances, comfortable beds, and revitalizing showers.

The suite was luxurious whilst also being comfortable, welcoming. It was very convenient to be so close to Whalers Village and the trendy restaurants/entertainment lining the Kaanapali boardwalk. The sunsets were glorious but even these paled in comparison with the acrobatic shows of the Humpback whales in the distance. The staff members at the Whaler were courteous and helpful, always ready to ensure our stay was pleasurable. If the question is, ‘would you stay there again?’ my immediate and emphatic response would be ‘in a heartbeat.
