We very much enjoyed our stay
and would stay here again. The view was beautiful, pool was great, the
room was clean and spacious, the staff was phenomenal, and the location
was perfect. Mini golf at the resort was fun. Every morning we took our
coffee and walked along the beach. Having your own kitchenette was so
nice. We stopped at Costco when we landed and got a few things such as
sandwich fixings, eggs, fruit, and alcohol. It eliminates the need to
have to eat out for every meal. We travelled with our 5 month baby, so
having the bedroom separate from the living room was very helpful. Overall loved the
Modinat's review Aug 2023
No complaints about this place.. it's just sad that people around
Lahaina are going through a tough time right now. Even with the disaster
going on, the staffs were still courteous and respectful in answers
questions.. my heart goes out to them all.

This was an amazing place to
stay: great location, fitness gym, pool, jacuzzi, and beach. It was
central to all of the activities we wanted to do while on the island of
Maui. Gordon was also very responsive to any questions we had before the
trip. We didn't have any questions while we were in Maui so there was
no reason to contact him. We will definitely book again with Gordon
should we visit Maui again.

This is a great place to stay
when visiting Maui! You are in one of the prime locations with many
outdoor activities and shopping to be had. We were are able to snorkel
for the beach located on property and saw many fish. The pool,
waterslide, and hot tub were refreshing and clean. There is a grocery
store right across the street in a strip mall. Short walk to many places
to eat. In the evenings there were many food trucks located on the
adjoining property. The room and view from the balconies are amazing.
It was nice to be able to cook many of our meals in the room and have
the ability to wash laundry when needed.
Dori June 2022
This condo and facility was
super clean, staff super friendly and location ideal! I highly recommend
to anyone visiting Maui. We were within minutes to the Whalers Village
shopping center, great beaches, a grocery store and pharmacy and the
Old Lahaina Luau. I highly recommend!
Michelle March 2022
Gordon was responsive. The
place was wonderful! We enjoyed hearing the waves crash, and seeing
whales from the balcony. The pool area is nice! There is a washer and
dryer available for use in the resort!
Paulbir, CA May 2021
This is place is everything and more, Gordon’s team made the experience all the more better. Highly recommended!
It was an awesome stay, more than we expected. Thank you Gordon and team, we will definitely stay there through you again!
Milan, NY May 2021
Great place really big and really great location for great price. Me and my friend we had great time staying at Gordon’s place with the view on the water. When I come back to Maui I definitely booking this place again.
Thank you for great stay. We loved the place. Thank you
Krystle, CA May 2021
Gordon was helpful and accommodating. It was a simple process and the resort was amazing. My family and I had the best time. It was our first time in Maui as a family. So all around it was a great experience: Gordon, the Kaanapali Beach Resort and Maui!!
Ryan, CA May 2021
Awesome spot with great location on the beach. Room was large and has a great balcony overlooking the mountains, caught some amazing rainbows there.
Thanks Gordon! Loved the place and location.
Miriah, CA May 2021
We had a wonderful time at the resort. I got injured pretty badly on day 3/4 of our trip which resulted in quite a bit of bed rest and limited mobility. The staff checked on me daily to ensure I was okay and to wish me well. They went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable. The view from the room isn’t the best but you can still see the ocean and it was relaxing and again quite wonderful. We bought our own snorkeling gear and snorkeled right off the beach at the hotel and had such a fun time (of course this was pre-accident) if we had a do over I would definitely choose this hotel/stay the same. Overall we had a wonderful time!
Thomas, CA May 2021
Great place! Very clean. Easy checkin. Everyone there was so helpful. Wonderful pool. Would definitely recommend and come back to. A little tricky to Uber/Lyft because of lack of drivers, but resort staff was able to call cabs which got there pretty quick.
Lauren, CA May 2021
No complaints at all! We loved our spacious room, the staff was extremely friendly and attentive if we needed anything, and the location was perfect. Booking was easy and convenient too. Would stay again for sure!!!
We had the best stay. Thank you!
Michelle, CO April 2021
Great place. Beautiful views and beach right in front. Washer and dryer available and free. Also appreciated the free parking garage. I took advantage of “Happy Hour” often.
Thanks for everything. I had an amazing time.
Amber, UT April 2021
Gordon was very accommodating and helpful booking our first trip to Hawaiian islands. We loved Maui and loved this resort. It was beautiful and the staff were excellent to work with and it was a very nice place. Will recommend to others and stay here again!
Kaylee, AK April 2021
Beautiful resort! They had amazing services and booking was so easy! Gordon is a great host!
Rose, DE April 2021
What an amazing stay! I can’t say enough about this place! Beautiful, great location. Communication was great! Grocery store so close by for any of our needs. Just can’t say enough. I would stay here again without a doubt!!
Thank you for the lovely stay!! We really enjoyed ourselves!!
Kennedy, TN April 2021
The architecture of the KBC is next level... everyone is so respectful. Cocktails are pricey, but bring your own liquor by the pool/beach and your set. Amazing location and so much love radiates within this space. I would stay on a higher level for the views. The price is really worth it compared to the resorts standard pricing :-) would stay again!
You’re the best! Love KBC..fell in love here
Lynda, CA April 2021
We didn’t have the sunset side as we faced the other direction in room 915. But come on we were so close to the sand and the views were fantastic! I liked seeing the BBQs to see how busy it was getting. But with at least 8 bbqs it was never a problem getting in. Pool is amazing and perfect temperature. They have a nice public beach, although small, good snorkeling. Wish it was a little easier for my semi disabled hubby to get down to it though. It was a one and done for him. Food at the grill was very good. Bellmen were so nice and helpful, call you a taxi, no problem. Uber and Lyft were a problem though everywhere. Scheduled rides never came. Made us think twice about heading out unless we had a taxi to return. Strongly suggest a rental car unless you just want to hang out around here. There is a grocery store, Times Mkt within walking distance. Also up the road away from Lahaina are some good eatery’s, not far on foot. We were pleased with the place and big rooms.
Jessica, CA April 2021
Kaanapali Beach Club is a great place to stay, and it is easy to get to other parts of town via the Maui bus that stops just down the road from the resort. The rooms are huge and offer great amenities. The pool is also very nice along with the beach. The staff are all very friendly, and it is overall a wonderful place to stay for a vacation in Maui!
Tyler, WA April 2021
We had a great time staying here. The staff was very friendly and the whole place was a beautiful spot to be for our vacation. My only complaints are that we booked for a king bed and were given two full beds because no rooms with a king bed were available. This made things slightly uncomfortable for us and we felt misled. Also, the description said “scenic view” but our view was the mini golf course and other balconies. Not exactly what I would consider scenic. Otherwise it was a great stay.
Lee, OH April 2021
Great spot. Very clean. Place had lots of beach towels, beach chairs, snorkeling gear, and a cooler. Nice set up. Loved the style
Annika, CA April 2021
Wow, what an amazing experience! The space fit me, my husband, our two kids, and my mother in law perfectly. No need for a rental car because there is a pool, beach, grocery store, restaurant, and FOOD TRUCKS within walking distance. We had a great time, I highly recommend!
Meklite, CA April 2021
Had a great stay! The condo is in a really great location. Shops, food trucks and Kaanapali beach were all in walking distance. Gordon was responsive and gave us clear checkin instructions. We would stay here again on our next trip to the island. Thanks!
Reid, MN April 2021
Great setup for a couple in Hawaii. No kitchenette but the hot plate helped out with breakfast many mornings. Not an ocean view but we were blown away by the mountains off the balcony. Fantastic hospitality at Kaanapali Beach Club and great Kahana Bananas at the pool bar. Great variety of food trucks across the park where we got dinner 3 nights. Saw whales off the pool deck 2/3 nights we watched the sunset. Not a brand new unit but in great shape and would recommend.
Had a great stay! The experience at Kaanapali Beach Club was great. We were pleasantly impressed by the view from the balcony!
Cheri, CA April 2021
Great place to stay in Kaanapali! Gordon was easy to work with and helpful with our booking. This is our second time staying here and working with Gordon and I would do it again. The room is VERY spacious and clean. The resort staff are amazing and friendly, felt very safe there with the Covid precautions taken by the resort. Highly recommend!
Jen, WA April 2021
Gordon was very helpful and quick to respond to questions. The condo was nice and served our needs comfortably. The pool was wonderful and the resort was in a great location. We weren’t called or asked once to sit through a timeshare presentation. They weren’t staffed to clean our unit until the day before we left which we declined at that point. This wasn’t an issue for us but it may be for some. Housekeeping was super responsive any time I called and asked for anything (coffee, fresh towels, etc.). We had a great time with our kids here and would go back. We would recommend.
Chandrashekar, CA April 2021
Great spot, especially if you’re traveling with kids! Having a private kitchen and separate rooms made all the difference. Great facilities and beautiful views too!
Elyssia, CA April 2021
Gordon’s place was perfect for my boyfriend and I as well as my cousin and niece that arrived a day later. We were able to enjoy the sunrise with a view from our room every morning and we were close enough to restaurants and right on the beach. In the evenings we would enjoy drinks at the bar and my 5 year old niece loved the pool and all the activities at the resort. The bathroom was huge! This made it easy when we had to get ready. We also were able to cook a couple meals since we had a refrigerator, rice cooker and griddle. This place has everything we needed. The staff were all friendly and helpful also. I hope to come back again.
Cara, NV April 2021
The view is amazing, not sure it can get any better than this room. Easy to check in and the resort was awesome for adults and kids.
Yun, CA April 2021
Three of us had a great stay. The suite (2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms) is pretty big. There are three bathroom sinks which is great for us. Luckily, we had a ocean and mountain view suite. We watched the ocean sunset at our living room everyday. It was beautiful. The beach is pretty nice for snorkeling. Great service, nice people and delicious food! Gordon was very patient with my booking. Thanks!
QinQin, NY April 2021
This resort is great! The room is very comfortable. Me and my friend had a wonderful time there. My friend used the sofa bed in the living room which was very comfortable. It felt like a two-bedroom arrangement. The place is clean and the kitchen has every amenity one needs for simple cooking. If I ever go back to Maui again I will choose this place again! Great value!
Courtney, GA April 2021
What a great deal! Had an amazing view (ocean view), the amenities are great for families and the price point was too good to pass up. The pool area is great, not a huge beach area, but it works. Easy to find parking. The rooms are a little dated, but are well maintained and have a great layout. The staff was so nice and welcoming.
Karen, March 2021
The room with partial view was beautiful. Kitchen had fridge, microwave, coffee maker with coffee and toaster. Many other cooking utensils and electric skillet but no stove. Bathroom was huge with bath, shower and two sinks. Bed linens were fine. Pool area and garden were beautiful. On the beach. Quick walk to the boardwalk. Beach towels provide. Bicycle and beach chair rentals available. Concierge were helpful and honest. Underground parking nice. We did see whales from our room with a partial view. Although some of the building could use a little update the location, individual rooms, pool, and service make up for it. We would stay again.
Adam, OR March 2021
This is a great location if staying with kids. The pool is terrific (heated), right by numerous excellent beaches, and there are restaurants and grocery stores nearby.
Emmanuel, FL March 2021
Amazing location! The beach by the hotel has one of the best snorkeling I’ve ever done. The ocean views are spectacular. Being able to see the whales from our ocean view room made our honeymoon so magical! Next time I visit Maui, I will definitely be staying here again.
Thank you so much for the upgrade, our Honeymoon was so magical in part due to the amazing views from the Deluxe ocean view room!
Ellie, OR March 2021
We very much enjoyed our stay. Great views of both ocean and mountainside. Kids loved the pool and easy access to ocean and parents loved the Lava Flows! Great spring break trip!
Melinda, CA March 2021
Never stayed in the far north part of Kaanapali. It was nice being a bit away from the hustle-bustle of the heart of Kaanapali (boardwalk area). During Covid, it was super close to many conveniences (and food) and nice to kick back in the room and watch the whales from the balcony.
Kasey, OR March 2021
Beautiful, super clean, spacious, wonderful amenities, and incredible ocean front views! We highly recommend it!!!
Had a fantastic stay. Can't thank you enough or rave enough about your fabulous condo! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would love to stay there again in the future. P.S. The views are absolutely stunning!
Anna, OR March 2021
Great place with a kitchen, living space, large bath and king sized bedroom. We had the ocean view room and it was awesome being able to see the sun set over the Pacific. The kitchen had basic amenities, no range or oven though. Just an electric skillet and microwave. The unit itself is part of Diamond Resorts, so be ready for the sales people to try and sell the timeshare. The resort had a nice pool and a well maintained property. Free onsite parking garage. The beach is fairly small and pretty rocky/coral so it made it hard for swimming. Kaanapali beach is pretty close by though, so we ended up going there. There is an on-site restaurant and bar but we preferred to venture out to Lahaina for dinners. The food carts nearby also have some good dinner options but close fairly early (8ish pm). Overall, we had a wonderful time! Thanks!
Thanks for letting us stay with Diamond Resorts! We had a wonderful time in Maui.
Philip, MN March 2021
Excellent ocean view condo! Very clean. Very nice facility. EXCELLENT POOL!!. My family and I had a great time. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you very much for letting us stay here. Excellent spot!!
Priscilla, March 2021
Beautiful Villa. You will not be disappointed more beautiful than the pictures. Would highly recommend Gordan and his team.
Diana, OR March 2021
Such a great space. The view was amazing and it was nice having the resort feel without paying the price. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom with the big tub was great. The food at the Beach Club was good and the location on the boardwalk was amazing.
We had a wonderful time!
Daniella, AZ March 2021
Don’t hesitate to book this place. You don’t know exactly what room you are getting but as long as you specify that you want Oceanview they will make sure you get it. Gordon was super responsive and helpful as we navigated the Hawaii travel restrictions. The resort is really nice and only a five minute walk to the boardwalk and a swimmable beach. Don’t be put off by the fact that the beach in front of the hotel is not swimmable. The hotel is taking all necessary precautions for Covid and yes there are some restrictions with towels and hot tub stuff but as long as you are not being a “Karen” about it, you will do just fine. Lahaina is about 5 miles away and we went almost every night, although most stuff shuts down by 8:30. This is not a “nightlife” town! Do try Paia fish house and Down the Hatch for happy hour! Woohoo adult shaved ice! We stopped at costco before leaving for the hotel (about 45 minute drive to hotel) and cooked breakfast every morning in the little electric pan (no stove in the apt). Enjoy Hawaii and all its natural beauty! Mahalo!
Tawnya, WA March 2021
Location was amazing. My kids LOVED the pool. We could watch whales from our room and saw a sea turtle on the beach right in front of the hotel! Marriott staff was very accommodating and Gordon was quick to respond! We had a great experience and would love to stay again.
We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you so much!
Greg, AZ March 2021
As a review your right in the midst of everything your place is all around you with things to do from zip lining to whale watching to deep-sea fishing the sunset cruises and the views are outstanding and the people are so nice and happy that you’re there You won’t regret booking with Gordon. This is got to be one of the best vacations I’ve ever had and I want to say thank you to everyone!
This was probably the most enjoyable trip I’ve had in a long long time these are memories I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life my family and I enjoyed it immensely. I just want to thank Gordon for sharing his place with us and if you book with him you will be very very satisfied and relieved knowing you’ll have a great vacation. Thanks Gordon I hope to see you real soon!
Laura, NY March 2021
This is a great spot for travelers planning an extended stay who need extra living space, but also want resort-style amenities. The rooms are spacious and updated. There are complimentary washers and dryers on each floor (use early!) and kitchen is outfitted with hot plate, blender, dishes, etc. Pool area and hot tub are also great and get crowded pretty early (even during Covid). I knew when booking there wasn't great beach access but I do think that's a downside to the resort. That said, the views out to the water are gorgeous. You can see whales in winter and enjoyed watching sunset from bbq area (resort provides cooking tools). Pro trip: request oceanview room ending in 01 upon check in. Has better, less obstructed view than 02 and 03.
Thank you for hosting us in Maui. We had a wonderful stay on island.
Jacob & Brie, WA March 2021
Great stay at the Kaanapali Beach Club! Watched whales from the balcony every morning, sat at the private beach for beautiful sunsets and enjoyed the pool/hot tub daily. Hope to return again some time soon!
Thanks Gordon for the great stay! Maybe we'll link up again for a visit next year. Take care!
Tim, CO March 2021
Hotel is nice. Plenty of free parking. Pool is great. Waterslide was cool. Hot tub is giant, although currently and understandably they only allow 6 people in it at a time because of Covid. The beach is not the best, but swimmable and it looked like they were fixing it up to be better. Gordon was a great host. He was quick to respond everytime and he even called to get us an upgraded room with a "ocean view." However, it is up to the hotel apparently on what room they will actually upgrade you to. And even though we could see the ocean slightly, the lay out of the hotel, makes it where balconies are practically facing each other, zero privacy, and unless you have a room in the Aloha Tower that is nearest the ocean, you might find yourself disappointed like we were. So my recommendation is to make sure you have a room in that front tower before you book.
Shelby, MI March 2021
Great place and great area, 11/10 recommend!
Thank you !!! We loved our stay and we’re close to so many great spots!
Erin, UT February 2021
Communication with Gordon was great! He answered every little question I had, without hesitation! Our room and service at Kaanapali Beach Club was beyond what I expected!! We had an amazing corner room with a huge balcony, and an amazing view of the ocean!!! We can’t wait to plan our next trip back!!
Thank you so much! It was even better than we expected!! We’ve never had such an amazing balcony and ocean view when we’ve traveled to Hawaii before!!
Nathaniel, CA February 2021
The place was clean and we felt safe traveling even during covid. The beach club even provided masks and hand sanitizer upon check-in! The location was also great and this was a good home base for all of the activities we were doing while in Maui.
Thanks Gordon for letting us stay here! We had a blast!
Andy, MN February 2021
Beautiful room and resort. The resort staff was friendly and helpful. Gordon made things super easy to come in and enjoy a week in one of the best places on the island. A ton of stuff in the immediate area. I would highly recommend!
Thanks for a great stay Gordon. The place was awesome! Unfortunately I didn’t spend enough time at the place to get to know all the amenities. Spent most of the time out exploring beautiful Maui. It was a great place to call home base for the week.
Steve, WA February 2021
The Kaanapali Beach Club is probably the best value in Kaanapali. Great location, nice property, nice staff, huge pool, and big room space. Admittedly, not as swanky as some of the higher end properties in the area (e.g. Honua Kai, Sheraton, Westins) but definitely a better bang for the buck! Gordon was a great host. Very quick to respond and accommodating. We had a family emergency at the last minute we needed to deal with and Gordon was more than helpful in working with us.
Thanks for everything, Gordon!
Jennifer, UT February 2021
We love staying at Ka’anapali Beach Club. Staff is very nice & pleasant to be around. Gordon was great at responding in a timely manner to any questions we had prior to our arrival. Great experience!
Thank you!! We had a great time in Maui & always love staying at Ka’anapali Beach Club.
Jake, CA February 2021
We had an awesome time staying at Gordon's place. The staff, location, amenities, and hospitality were all great. Gordon was helpful in the initial booking process as well. I highly recommend booking with Gordon.
Thanks for everything Gordon. We had an awesome trip!
Megan, MO February 2021
Everything was beautiful and perfect, and just as expected, and the view was absolutely phenomenal! Host response time was very prompt, and check-in process was quick and easy. Would definitely recommend, and would stay here again!
Sheida, AZ - January 2021
Gordon’s room is everything! 360 view - The ocean is right outside and you can hear the ocean waves crashing and the other side has the sunrise. The place was amazing (little restaurant downstairs and bar and huge pool) and the staff was so helpful. Outside the space, Gordon is such a pleasure to work with! The value is amazing and his responses are quick - would definitely come back again. Thank you so much for such a fabulous trip. We greatly enjoyed our stay at Kaanapali Beach Club and the view was amazing. Thank you for making our trip one to remember forever :)
Aditya, NY - January 2021
This was a great private condo in an outstanding resort by the beach. We loved every second of our stay here and would definitely come back. Gordon - thanks for hosting us at this amazing condo. We had so much fun in the resort and would totally recommend it to any of our friends/family visiting Maui. I believe I left some basics for the next resident (oil, salt and pepper, etc.) which I thought would be useful. Thanks again!”
Jessica, IN - January 2021
Thanks SO MUCH for everything, Gordon! We had a terrific stay, loved the property and all that it had to offer! It was an outstanding deal and we were SO pleased! Appreciate your fast communication, help connecting the extra night with the week reservation and how great you were to work with! MAHALO!!!
Kenn, CA - January 2021
Gordon gave quick responses. Hospitality is outstanding. The place is very nice, clean, and spacious. Highly recommend. Thanks Gordon. We had a great time! Your place is really nice.
Bradley, WA - January 2021
Fast communication and easy coordination. Great value for a beachside hotel that had all the luxuries! Thanks for the awesome trip! Thanks for the seamless stay!
Peggy, NY - January 2021
Great place and very communicative host. His place is a part of our great memory of our vacation. Add customer reviews and testimonials to showcase your store’s happy customers. Thank you for giving us a great memory of Hawaii.
Review From Maui - January 2021
"We really enjoyed our stay at Ka'anapali Beach Club and were overall really impressed! First off, the location is really nice. We've stayed in Wailea, the more expensive and ritzier part of the island before and now Lahaina, the more family friendly, lower key area and we personally MUCH prefer Lahaina and the Ka'anapali Beach area! It feels a bit cooler in general, the breeze never stops. It also has a more chill vibe in general, but with a LOT to offer, just not stuffy in any way, while still being really nice and full of terrific amenities! The condo and Ka'anapali Beach Club in general definitely exceeded our expectations! We expected a decent, clean, basic room with a few amenities at the resort but didn't plan to spending much time there, so it was perfect for us and fit our budget. The resort was MUCH more than than and the condo was very nice! The rooms have been updated (we stayed in January of 2021), furniture is now brightly colored and very clean. The king bed was comfortable! The sleeper sofa was not so we ordered a roll away which they happily brought to us at no charge. That was a much better option. The bathroom as very large and included a large tub, a standing shower, a separated toilet and two sinks. The kitchen was nice and well stocked with dishes and small appliances. We used the griddle for eggs & bacon a few times, the toaster daily and the coffee maker each day. The fridge is large for a condo and allows for plenty of storage. There was a large closet for storage of hanging clothes and empty suitcases, then plenty of drawers for easy storage of clothing, towels, etc. It was very clean, very well appointed and fit our needs perfectly. It's not a 5 star type of place but it's perfect for most people with reasonable expectations. We were VERY pleased! For the resort, it's really terrific! Excellent service, very large and spacious with meticulous care for covid precautions, sanitizing, etc. We saw cleaning of high touch places during most of our stay, sanitizing stations everywhere, consistent requests for masks, etc. If you are concerned about Covid, you will feel safe here. The amenities were much better than we expected! They have a large, very clean pool which is GREAT and includes a fun small pool with waterfalls that come into it (our kids LOVED it and sitting under the waterfalls), a waterslide for kids (and adults! ha!), a hot tub, a rental place for bike, boogie board, surf board and other types of rentals and also a bar and a restaurant. Also lots of chairs and not a lot of "chair hogging" like at some places. As for the food: we read all about the "usual" options at the restaurant and were excited to try things like the calamari, monkey bread, mac nut crusted mahi, fish tacos, etc....but unfortunately, Covid has ruined a lot of that and they are on a limited menu now. They still offer a full bar and now their food service is done through a service line where you order and take your food to go. You can eat at the pool overlook area and anywhere at the pool so it works out. We planned to eat at the hotel a bit more than we did because of this, but it wasn't an issue. We still ordered pizza/a burger/snacks a few times and drinks many times. It was all good, just not the full service style and full menu that you would find there in non Covid times. Best part is: there is a full time food truck fest that runs 7 days a week, just in front of the resort. It's maybe a 7 minute walk from the main lobby and most of it is just getting off the property. The food truck area offers great food and a huge variety, Thai/Vietnamese/Ribs & Meat/Fish & Poke/Greek/Mexican trucks and we fell in love with it, visiting many times. Highly recommend the short walk down there. The grocery store is directly across the street from the food trucks which is also so very convenient. We loved the area personally and also made the short drive to Whaler's Village which we highly recommend for shopping, lunch on the beach and the largest, most spacious beach around with great snorkeling at Black Rock Beach. You park in the Whaler's Village shopping center garage and walk through the open air shopping area out to the beach for a great beach, great food, great shopping and venture toward the black rocks for great snorkeling and an even more spacious beach. The beach in front of Ka'anapali Beach Club is nice but it's fairly narrow, especially at high tide so Black Rock Beach is a great, close alternative if Ka'anapali Beach is packed or there isn't much to offer for sand. Ka'anapali was better for ocean play & boogie boarding. We also found an awesome hidden breakfast and lunch spot (but very popular so get there early, like 7:30-8am) about 10 minutes north called The Gazebo. It's tucked into another condo complex but sits right on the beach and is not hard to find if you follow the signs. EXCELLENT breakfast and lunch! So good that we went back twice! We did find that most places had only been open a few weeks to just over a month (some opened at Thanksgiving time, others the day after Christmas, we were there from the Jan 2nd-10th) after being closed since March. It was obvious that they were all still getting back into the swing of things and the food on the whole island left a little to be desired, in general. Our best meals were actually some of our more affordable ones, ironically. Remember that 9-10 months closed does impact businesses significantly so we just tried to have grace. Many places were still closed or permanently closed."
