Great resort!
Reviewed 3 days ago

Booked this through Costco and it is a really nice resort- grounds are beautiful and our room was spectacular! We got upgraded unexpectedly for some unknown reason and ended up with an ocean front room instead of ocean view...so the beautiful beach was right outside our patio door! No resort fees, no parking fees, and they provide umbrellas, beach towels, snorkel equipment, etc, free of charge!! No nickel and diming here! Service is great everywhere on this resort and I love how almost all units have kitchenette or full kitchen so if you want to save a few bucks and have food on hand to cook you have the option. Would have given 5 stars if the parking situation was better. Not a lot of parking seemed to be available and although we got lucky and found a space every night we did have to skulk about until someone left and the spots were super tight. Outside of that- perfection!

Expensive and loud road work going on
Reviewed 1 month ago

We spent a bundle to stay for a week at this resort. The resort is lovely, the ongoing road work was not. We were told we were upgraded to a newly refurbished room. It was nice, but didn't have the ocean view we paid for. Then on our first morning we were awaken to road crews tearing up the road. It went on for days, and then put metal plates on the road. Every time a car drove over the plates there was a loud thunk noise. When I say loud I mean LOUD. Management did nothing to remedy the situation. One night there was a loud commotion in the next room. There was yelling and screaming with a woman pleading for her son to behave. He apparently had done something to his dad's watch. I called the front desk, and I was told they were checking out the next day. Well that really solves everything. This time appeared to be a place where multi-generational families go. The pool was filled with babies and toddlers and surprisingly a lot of school-age children. Don't these kids attend school? Anyway I contacted the hotel with my complaints and surprisingly got no response. This is an expensive place to stay and I'd say find somewhere else. One last comment: parking in the parking lots was hard. All the spaces are made for small cars. We had a van and it was nearly possible to park in a stall. Maybe that's why a lot of the large vehicles just took up two spaces.

Top Notch in All Ways

My wife and I were going to be in Maui for six nights, and I spent a fair amount of time reading reviews of various areas on the western coast of the island. If you are looking for a great place to stay, this is it. We were not looking for golf or tennis or swimming pools, so that eliminated resorts to the north, and we wanted to avoid packed tourist areas, so that eliminated Lahaina. What we got was a place with (a) its own lagoon, (b) a really nice restaurant for breakfast every morning, (c) a room with a view of the water and a nice balcony for relaxing, (d) a superb concierge in the form of Steve, who could not have been more friendly or helpful, (e) a spacious room that was clean and tidy (and a family could use the refrigerator and dishes and cook in the room), (f) enough parking that we could come and go and always manage to find a parking spot, and (g) an overall atmosphere that made the entire experience a true pleasure. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Maui.

Just peace ✌️

Three generations: perfect low key vacation for baby
Reviewed 2 months ago

2 Grandparents, 2 parents, and one almost year-old baby stayed for ten days in the Ohana suite. This is the largest suite in the property: two bedrooms, two bathrooms, well-stocked full kitchen, large living room. We oldsters stayed in the large master bedroom which had a shower only, while the new family stayed in the room with walkin closet just the right size for the crib, and the bathroom with a tub.

The room is on the second floor and overlooks the putting green, so is called garden view. You pay for the size, not the view. It was more cost effective for us to have the one suite rather than two separate rooms, which gave us the very large living area: over 1900 square feet. Still, because of location it was not the most expensive room on the property. However, I was very glad that we got two free nights for that length of time.

The location within the resort has also been perfect for us (except for the view): the parking lot is steps from our door, and has not been full even one day, for easy access with groceries and carrying baby. The spots are small, but there have always been spots. It is quiet because we are above the shop and have neighbors only on one side. And it is easy to get to the kiddie pool, which is adjacent to the main pool.

The property provided us not only with the crib, but also with high chair and diaper pail, all free of charge. The balcony was perfect for an almost toddler, because standing on tiptoe he could just peer across the edge, and it was topped with a glass fence, so no danger of falling.

Our only complaint was that the bottom cushions never stayed on the loveseats and couches. They all opened into beds we didn’t need, and the cushions kept scooting forward and falling off any time we sat on them. Owners take note: they need velcro!

The service was excellent. The cleaning crew seemed to come by every time the baby was napping, so they just kept coming back every couple of hours until they found a time he was awake.

Unlike other reviews that complained about the beach towels, we found them generous, offering us extras and swapping out the towels multiple times per day, every time one got wet.

We ate many meals at the somewhat pricey Sea House restaurant, but the food was always good, kids eat free, and we did takeout from them as well. The convenience was great, becuase our little one hated being strapped into the rental carseat.

There are free daily activities. We particularly enjoyed making leis here. We ended up with five dendrobium orchid leis. We also had fun at the slack key concert, and the mini reef fish and lei lectures.

We are very experienced snorkelers, so take our comments here in that spirit: we saw turtles, reef sharks, and octopus, but folks, this is not the Great Barrier Reef. The coral is virtually nonexistant, and the density of fish not very great. But for people who don’t snorkel much, it seemed to be an ecstatic experince.

Alas, it rained and had high winds every day we were here. Nevertheless, we managed to get out on the beach between the raindrops, and at this time of year (midApril), the little bay was peaceful. My snorkel was never washed over by waves.
