There is a wall and no beach. If you are looking for a beach don't book.

No Beach or much of anything else...

Overpriced....There is a seawall but no beach at all. The elevator to our room broke twice during our stay. The hot tub was out of service for a day. There was major construction noise every day but Saturday and Sunday on other buildings on site. There were mice in our room that I could not tell my wife about because she would freak out, thankful she did not see them. The beds were made and the towels changed every day but the rooms were not cleaned. Try somewhere else if you can...

Highly Recommend

Even though this is an older property, the grounds were as good as any of the high end places we saw. The buildings are older but kept up really well. Only downside I must note: the parking is really, really tight. If we would go out to dinner, and return later in the evening, it was difficult if not impossible to find parking near our building. Otherwise, I highly recommend this place.

Overflowing Aloha Spirit

This is my 2nd time staying at Papakea! Just when I thought my 1st experience could not get any better, my 2 time has been extraordinary! I was upgraded to an ocean front room, literally RIGHT ON THE WATER, upon my arrival..at no extra charge. Each day, the maid service was very sweet to be cautious of my privacy, yet made sure I had fresh towels and lotions everyday. The staff seriously overflows with Aloha spirit! I took Mahalo cards and a flower lei to each of the ones that gave me such over the top service upon my departure. My little 4 day "work" trip was more comfort and beauty than I ever imagined! (So much so, that upon being told I may get to work on Maui permanently, I went down to request a realtor card about purchasing a unit there. I LoVe it here THAT much) Mahalo with all my heart for the service and kindness you shared with me. So grateful! See you soon!

Average was what we were looking for

The Papakea was an average place to stay. I think it had potential for more but their were some downsides. For starters the beach access was nothing more than some steps that brought you to more rock than beach but it is Hawaii so a sandy beach wasn't far. One of the buildings was under construction so that made for an eye sore. Our neighbors had a screaming child that never stopped. It is hard to relax when a child is constantly screaming but what can you do? The resort was full so they couldn't move us, you can't kick the other people out, and the trip was pre-paid so we weren't leaving. The room had a courtyard view but the ocean was within sight so that was nice. The room itself was quaint but needed a place to put your bags that was a bit more accessible, the shower backed up, and the kitchenette was stocked with a hodgepodge of cutlery which was dull. The air conditioner/heater was blocked by the TV stand but the AC unit would easily be moved to the other window. Some of the staff was friendly but several times I called to ask a question and no one would answer so I had to walk to the office for a simple question. Also, the DVD rental they provided gave us the wrong movie, a broken movie, and finally one that somewhat worked so that makes a relaxing night a pain to go back and forth. The resort didn't take responsibility for it because the DVD machine is provided by an outside source. The great thing is that you are on an island so everything is close. The Papakea was clean and apart from some poor luck with the screaming kid and construction I would go back. The small inconveniences aren't big issues. We didn't use the concierge service because we already had our trip planned but one was available. My wife and I never made it to the tennis courts due to lack of time but they looked well maintained. Overall, it was an average place to stay but that is what we budgeted for so it met our needs.

There are plenty of places to rent snorkel gear nearby and there is a real great place to go about four miles north of the hotel called Kapalua Bay.

Great Place to Stay

We were looking for a relatively inexpensive place to stay while we explored Maui. The studio room we got was just perfect for the role. Washer/Drier, full kitchen with a fridge made staying for a week easy. We packed light knowing that we could wash our clothes which made it easier to pack gifts and tourist stuff home. Having a full kitchen and fridge meant not having to eat out all the time and having snacks readily available. A/C was noisy, but we didn't need it in November since the trade winds made for nice cross ventilation and kept the room cool.

Check out "Da Kitchen" or "Zippys" in Kahului for some inexpensive food with a great local flavor (that's where the locals go).
