winter getaway

The experience was great on the vacation. We did not spend much time at the hotel so it met our needs just fine. Had difficulty with the wired internet and getting answers from the front desk. Upgraded us to an ocean view which was nice. Room was very nice and clean. Restaurant had great food. Staff were nice most of the time. Had a few who seemed like they would rather being doing something else than helping you, but overall a good place to stay for the price.

Maui get away!

The hotel has a great location and is on the beach. The grounds are well kept and are beatiful. We had a garden view room but we could still see the ocean very clearly. There are 2 pools and spas; one for younger kids, the other for families where parents can enjooy a drink next to the pool. The resort fees and parking are expensive but very nice location overall. The only negative is that in the morning it was fairly noisy early on as we could hear delivery trucks backing out.

Go to sloppy cakes for breakfast with your family--make your own pancakes at your table. Hotel gave us a coupon too, great place! Go to Roys for nicer dinner and order the Ahi Tuna and chocolate soufle for dessert--a must!!

excellent location and accommodations

Our room had a large bedroom, large, well-equipped kitchen, dining area/living room. We had a lovely garden view and were very comfortable. The housekeeping staff were there daily and were very thorough and helpful when we needed extra kitchen items, laundry soap, towels, etc. There was plenty of storage space so we could unpack and feel at home. The location was ideal and within walking distance to the beach, stores and restaurants. I recommend this hotel and would return!

Migrating whales were active and playful, and phenomenal to watch, right from the shore. They were very close and easy to watch without having to go out on a boat.

Not sure about the originally booked hotel as it was overbooked. Not sure if they rate reservations from other companies over theirmembers. However where they moved us was absolutely perfect not have asked for. The hotel they moved us to is right next door. We were right on the ocean with them I think you in a full kitchen of both which were not included in the reservation. Nothing on the original hotel but highly rate where we were moved.

8 days on Maui

Very comfortable hotel Excellent and curtious staff Additional add on costs of up to $24/day were a surprise- including charge for internet/ exercise room and parking. Each condo is privately owned- some are a little dated. Bed pillows were bad Great beach access

Nice family gateway

We had a lot of fun at this place. It is true that certain amenities are not included in base price (mainly parking daily fee, also resort daily fees) but we felt it was well worth the price. Great location and nice amenities, well kept and modern rooms. Will be back.

Ridiculous charges for amenities

18 USD for resort fees which included DVD movies, towels, weekly show (only on wed). We were staying there for four days and ended up paying the resort fee for towels and a movie which didn't work. We had to pay additional 9 USD for parking. It wasn't mentioned at the time of purchase. There were several other folks who complained about this and there was no response from the manager. The website should clearly tell the customers that it is going to be 27 USD extra per night.

A lovely place to stay in Maui

The entire facility is well kept. The architecture of the buildings have a staggered design, providing complete privacy for each unit. The units are condo style and well furnished. Ocean views across the pools and garden from the bedroom window and Lanai. Beach is just outside the pool. Supermarket and small restaurants across the street. Conveniently located to Lahina with its many restaurants. Happy hour at the beach side pool restaurant. Plenty of parking at $9/day. Lovely place to stay for couples or families.
