Check-in time is at 4pm, but we arrived at the resort early to start our weekend. We obtained towel cards and left our luggage with the bell desk so the kids could spend time at the pools.
The expansive 26-acre property boasts six pools, including a kids' Pirate Ship pool, a water slide, water basketball, and four outdoor whirlpools.
The kids loved the water slide, and they spent hours at the Pirate Ship pool.

|Lots of room to lounge|
|So many pools!|
The 750 square-foot villa was decorated in warm, natural tones, and included a pull-out queen sofa, a large dining table, two large flat screen televisions, and a king Westin Heavenly bed.

The large bathroom included a double vanity, separate water closet, a whirlpool tub, and a stand-up shower.

Unfortunately, upon checking in we found cracker crumbs all over the floor in one of the closets.
However, despite that oversight, service throughout our stay was fabulous.
For instance, my kids wanted to take a bubble bath, but the jets weren't working, so we called maintenance. We went out to dinner, and by the time we returned, it was all fixed!
The Westin Ka`anapali Ocean Resort Villas is great for an extended stay. With a full kitchen, you can cook up entire meals for the family. The property has its own grocery store, Kai Ala Market, from where you can purchase groceries, or you have the option of ordering groceries online. It's just a $5 service charge to get everything delivered to your villa!
|Water and snacks from Kai Ala Market were ready and waiting for us!|
Although we only stayed at The Westin Ka`anapali Ocean Resort Villas for a just a weekend, clothes for a family of 5 sure add up. Prior to checking out, we did a load of laundry, which meant one less load of laundry to do when we got home.
For those staying longer, a washer and dryer means you can pack less clothes, and there'll be more room for souvenirs!
From our large lanai we had a lovely view of the ocean.

The Westin Ka`anapali Ocean Resort Villas is just steps from Ka`anapali Beach, with beautiful views of Lanai and Molokai, and if you're there during the months of November through April, it's possible to see whales frolicking in the ocean!
|Winter weather at the Westin - just perfect!|
|Check out the colors at sunrise|
|Can't get enough of the blues and greens!|
Guests can lounge at the beach, go on an outrigger canoe tour, take hula lessons, get pampered at Spa Helani, and so much more!

And if you do leave the property, you have the option of catching the free shuttle to Lahaina town, Whalers Village, and other Starwood properties on Maui! If you have your own car, you'll find that the resort is conveniently located, and is just a short drive away from numerous shops and restaurants.
I really love how kid-friendly the resort is. In addition to the super fun Pirate Ship pool, kids (and kids at heart), can play shuffleboard, make candy lei, and even learn Hawaiian at the Pu'uhonua Cultural Center!

The Westin Ka`anapali Ocean Resort Villas' large rooms, numerous amenities, and great location are just a few of the reasons why it's ideal for a family getaway.
