Brilliant location, nice views, good cultural activities. Disinterested staff, confusing parking, excessive resort fee, underwhelming club lounge, poor elite recognition.
Proximity to beach 1st floor family suite - room was not aired well. Had the smell of a closed up space that hadn't gotten opened for a while. Beds not comfortable. Other amenities were good - e.g. bathroom supplied
Room was functional and large enough great ocean front view. No HDMI Input on the flat screen TV so could play my iPad movies. Bathroom was a bit small not particularly functional and a bit dated. Long walk to the large self park garage at closer smaller lot always seemed to be full
Great amenities. Black rock cliff jumping and snorkeling right off the hotel beach. Easy access to Lahaina. Big family hotel
Staff was exceptionally helpful, even trying to assist with a rental car issue. We had a "garden view" which still had some partial views from the balcony, but only had one chair and not a lot of room for more. Location was great as there were several off premises dining options. The hotel no longer has a beach, so getting a chair on the beach was not an option. Snorkeling at black rock was fair, as the fish life was not abundant and it was crowded. Drinks were inconsistent, with great descriptions but no balance.
Location beautiful. $35 daily resort fee. Room was very dated needed refurbishment. Old carpet slow drains.
Amazing location.. Staff were not really friendly. Had to really struggle to find the laundry area in Sheraton. I asked one of the staff he just shrugged and walked away.. I would say half the people were happy & welcoming with "Aloha" other half didnt bother and they just wanted to work to get paid.
Overall, I thought the hotel was nice. The location was right in the middle of the area we wanted to be and on the water, and the drinks and food the couple times we ate at the hotel seemed to be right where we expected. Obviously, price could always be better on drinks, but when you are on vacation... it is what you assume.
Black rock beach is pretty nice, with good snorkeling. Rooms are good-sized. Rooms not as clean as we would like. Bed only so-so. Pool was overcrowded. Restaurants overpriced. "Resort fee" and daily charges even for self-parking.
Excellent, location ,facilities. No complaints
This is a huge beautiful place in a good location. All the staff if very pro. Room are modern and very nice.
The resort was fantastic & even better than we had expected...very nice facility, perfect location & the rooms are great. Very happy that we chose the Westin Villas & will definitely book there again! Minor thing: the sheets/covers were too small for the bed! I think that they had put queen sized bedding on a king size bed.
The hotel is really crowded. I didn't manage to use any sun lounger at the pool in 5 days. People tends to play, run, dive, climb, ... in the swimmingpool. And have a swim in the pool is everything but something relaxing. It's a family with children oriented hotel. Not recommended at all for couples.
luxury and comfort
All aspects of the Marriott were amazing-clean, friendly, professional and truly made us feel like guests. We couldn't believe the size of the lawn!
- 9 out of 10 of the staff members were enthusiastic, extremely helpful, and friendly. - The rooms were well designed and well decorated - The free shuttle rides for anywhere within three miles of the hotel was wonderful. - proximity to airport - The bistro appeared to more like a local starbucks than a place for guests to relax. Quite a few non-guest meetings/gatherings were taking place - particular staff members appeared to be a bit cold and "going through the motions" of hospitality. Not as warm and welcoming as the other staff members. But the warmth of everyone else was WAY more noticeable. - The distance from popular attractions makes this hotel just an overnight stay location for travelers
staff were friendly and accommodating. veryhelpful. Liked that shuttle took you around. not so scenic near airport
Shuttle to airport Convenient to car rental Easy access to eats, Kahului and Wailuku areas Totally pleased with first experience.
Location near airport. Inside the hotel it was cool but just as humid as outside. Clothes never really dried out.
I almost love everything - the breakfast, the pool, the beach, the classy atmosphere, the birds, etc. I want to mention, in particular, the staff at the breakfast. They treated us so well, especially Ludi.
room service was awesome...food outstanding. Front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating. Went to Japengo for dinner...sat us in the lounge area...even though the lanai was ready for seating and to catch the sunset...were told it wasn't open yet although hours of operation stated 5:30...sat with our backs to the water and couldn't see the sunset through the bar...after 10 minutes about 20 Japanese tourists were seated in the restaurant. felt shunned. The floor/carpet was dirty in our room (201). Nasty stains (by the nightstands and throughout the floor) we wore slippahs in the room! Coming from Honolulu, expected more. We were on the second floor and couldn't sit on our lanai since the people next door were out there smoking cigarettes and it smelled disgusting. For $400/night felt ripped off! Also feel parking should be a couple dollars a day...not $16! Then an additional $30 hotel fee???? Hyatt residence club employees were shoving the "timeshare" experience down our throats! Didn't spend that kind of money to try to be persuaded to purchase anything.
Lots of hidden fees. Overpriced food and drinks. They would not give me a complete bill when I checked out. Cost to park my vehicle!
Top shelf overall. The beach. Too much coral and rock.
It was a nice $200 a night hotel. Unfortunately I paid $600 a night The valet took 15 minutes to get our car and I had to ask twice to get the car. Two of the three elevators were broken so we eventually carried out bags down 5 flights of stairs after waiting 10 minutes. The bartender used his hands to put ice in people's glasss.
The design of the resort: the pools, the waterfalls, the wildlife lawns, etc. The staff are consistently nice and patient, the shuttle service within Ka'anapoli area, the size of the rooms. Compares to other resorts in the area such as Marriott and Westin, Hyatt's rate is very reasonable about average of $350/night. Son'z restaurant food was terrible for 5-star, fine-dinning categorization. The popcorn ceilings in the rooms can be upgraded. It has no beach - we'd have to walk further the Marriott resort for the beach. Hyatt should do a better job enforcing the no-smoking policy on floors designated as non-smoking floors, it's never pleasant to be out on lanai and having to deal with someone next to your unit smoking up a storm.
Staff unpleasant, not welcoming
Nice room, cleanly, beach front, nice pool area and not too bad a price for the area...being close to Lahaina was great! The hotel room we stayed in was a bit of a ways from the lobby and we had to walk through a row of shops to get to the front, but towards the end it wasnt that bad being away from commotion. The breakfast was expensive for what was being offered. It wasnt bad, just not worth $30/person. Parking was $18/day which hurt after we were there for so many days.
The hotel staff was very friendly, accommodating, and generous. We loved the warm, family friendly atmosphere of the hotel. The Easter activities were particularly fun for our children. No custom omelette or fresh waffle station at breakfast.
The view was stunning, and the amenities top notch. That I was unable to stay longer.
* People/service was great! * View of ocean from room was wonderful * always restocked amenities everyday * very clean bathrooms, room, lobby, etc. * Food was very good Everything was overpriced, but we were in Maui, and Hawaii is expensive ... getting there is only the beginning when it comes to spending $$$$
Wish I was still there. I left my camera charger in the room. They shipped it back to me. Loved it and would stay again if I can.
Beliggenheten var optimal med tanke på at det lå på stranden, i tillegg til fasiliteter som golf etc. I tillegg virket det som stedet det ligger på (Lahaina) kanskje er det beste stedet på hele Maui. Anbefalles på det sterkeste. Personalet var uklanderlig. Problemet med Hotell bestillinger her som eller i USA er at totalprisen er vanskelig å gjøre seg klok på vet bestilling utenom hotellet. Det er så mange skatter og avgifter som for en nordmann kan virke skjult, og jeg er pr i dag (venter på svar fra kortselskapet) fortsatt ikke helt sikker på hvilken pris jeg betalte...
Fint med beliggenhet nær strand.Lyst og trivelig rom med grei terasse.Nydelig utsikt over havet. Lite bad med altfor smal hylle til dusjsåpe og sjampo. Ønske om sol på terassen.
Everything! Walking distance to Kaanapali Beach,, Whalers Village, beautiful ocean view room, beautiful shower, strong A/C, comfy bed, clean gym and friendly staff! N/A
Everything. Great for families, honeymooners, young couples, old couples, beach bums, active people, lazy people, food lovers, drinkers...etc It was perfect
We were able to come to Maui on short notice. The westin exceeded all our expectations
Had a wonderful time at the Westin and would go back. The staff was awesome. They had a mini fridge in the room which worked out great for us. You can go snorkeling right off the beach at the Westin. Whalers village is right next door as well. The only thing we didn't like was that there wasn't a table in the room. There was a desk but not a small table to sit at and eat a little something the two of us.
They lost our reservation! We ended booking at another hotel.
The Bed! The Adult-only pool area (though the kiddos still managed to sneak in due to irresponsible parents) Proximity to beach Nice shower, but small bathroom area overall Lack of good food options Loud children in the hallways (maybe consider making some areas of this hotel for singles/couples only?) No fan in the bathroom
The flamingos and swans were absolutely beautiful. The pool was a little cold.
I saw reviews about the spa in travel & leisure magazine. And it and the staff met expectations. They were amazing. Also, the hotel itself is beautiful!! The restaurant staff and the guys selling the Maui Jim sunglasses need some training on customer service. They were pretty rude. I was able to avoid the wait staff by eating else were but the towel sunglasses guys I had no choice.
Love the location and the surrounding facilities, mall, restaurants, etc. Staff assigned me and my wife a room with 2 double beds for a week long stay in the most romantic place on earth. It was just too bad we could never sleep together the whole week. Ruined the whole trip for me.
Beautiful grounds and facilities. Great service and within walking distance to many restaurants. Crowded most of the time. charged for many things that were included with resort fees elsewhere such as paddle boards.
The resort is beautiful, I had a mountain view (the cheaper rooms) and the view is still amazing. There is a new shopping plaza immediately next door with restaurants and ice cream shops. Great outdoor pools. This resort is not cheap, which is okay. What is not okay is you have to pay to rent a crappy plastic chair to use when sitting at the beach. And then you have to pay additional money to rent an umbrella. And if you want to sit in a shaded seat by the pool you have to pay for that too. Totally bogus.
the Internet did not work, the shuttle could not pick me up.. no restaurant after a certain hour at $157 a night this is a rip off...
Nothing Staff was rude and to overcharge for anything else that was not specify in the reservation
Convenient. Comfortable. I liked getting asked preferences ahead of time and text responses back. Extra fees--resort fee and parking fee.
Large room beautiful view room beside elevators and still cost $310/night No airport hotel shuttle provided
hotel was right on the waterfront rooms were old, smelled like mildew
Location, proximity, cleanliness, restaurant, staff. Perfect for the money. If you are looking for a place to lay your head that is clean and safe and aren't worried about being on the beach
Close to the airport with easy check in. Cramped rooms, overpriced for what you get, recommend for business travelers only.
cool room Front desk didn't have my reservation. Many homeless people loitering around place, the room smelled weird.
Hotel was convenient to airport. Hotel is older with few amenities. The beach is in the harbor so the water is not very clean. I only stay here if I fly in a day early or fly out a day late to save on airfare while using my timeshare. I could not imagine staying here as my primary hotel for a week or more. Internet is very slow and room was musty/damp smelling when we checked in. There were fans in the hallway blowing into another room to dry it out. Could have been from the high surf a few days earlier.
I loved the green filled courtyard and gazebo with an ocean front view, and the pool on the roof. Decent coffee in room. Also, I liked the movie rental kiosk. I didn't like that the rooftop pool had to close when the rooftop restaurant opened, at 5pm. Disappointing for the kids, and I didn't look/notice if the times were written on the website,
Convenient, very close to the airport, overall it was fine. Hertz rental car is located inside the hotel lobby so can get car right there if rent from them. Even though pre-paid for rooms via booking.com and tripadvisor.com, was charged "resort fee" by the hotel upon arrival in addition to what had pre-paid. Shuttle to airport does not run after 9pm and only runs on the hour. So, if arriving late like us, have to get a cab. However, a cab/minivan with the 6 of us was only $12 to the hotel and many were available at the airport. Also, Hertz rental car does NOT offer a shuttle back to the airport and can't use the hotel's unless spent the night before.
The staff was nice, AirPort shuttle was good. The location is poor, the beach is not well suited for swimming, the place desperately needs renovation. Stay in Lahaina or go camping instead.
very nice room, well maintained and handsome grounds, friendly and efficient staff, beach access good, nearby snorkeling good. very long walk to hotel room. Although minor, but had coffee (latte) in hotel. Ouch- was bitter- i suspect very inferior beans that were also over roasted. I disliked the coffee so much that I didn't eat or drink anything in the hotel. I rather went to all the other nice restaurants nearby.
Large well-appointed rooms...gorgeous beach. Concierge team was excellent, especially Shelly.
The location of the property is beautiful. The service left a lot to be desired -- not what you would expect from the Ritz-Carleton. In fact, we were so disappointed, we checked out after two nights and moved to a different hotel.
Food was excellent.
There is simply no better location in Maui Activity concierge was not really ahead of its game
Friendliness of staff, club floor with lounge access, quality of food, comfort of room, ultr cleanliness of room, luxury of hotel
location - windy and rainy part of the island
The space, the unnoticeable but well prepared luxury and services. Cleanness, location,choice of programs, overall hospitality.
It was a great experience staying such cozy resort with excellent restaurants and location. N/A
Clean and uodated facilities and room. Excellent customer service and attention to detail. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. The on site seaside cliff is spectacular. Beach area was nice and secluded but small.
Amazing service! Perfect for our honeymoon with exceptional service, great location, beautiful ocean front grounds.
Stephen the valet set the tone from the moment he opened my wife's car door, escorted us to check-in, and down to our pool terrace room. His courtesy and hospitable attitude was echoed by the front desk, concierge, restaurant and housekeeping staff. Comfortable King bed room included a chaise lounge, desk, bench at foot of bed, huge LED TV and spa bath. In room coffee/tea and fridge for our own snacks/drinks. Clean clean clean. Excellence and luxury throughout. Amazing shore, pool areas, walking trails... Peaceful location above the fray of the more populated costal areas -- but only about a 15-minute ride to Lahaina with its lively stores, restaurants, and harbor activities, We know where we will be staying on Maui. Bravo! Nada!
This is located on weft side of Maui 50 steps from excellent sandy beach. It is a 50s style motel and rooms are small. Two very good restaurants are a 2 minute walk away. (Not affiliated with the motel). Very plain vanilla but good location. South Kihea Rd.
Very comfortable bed with convenient fridge. Can borrow beach towels at the front desk. Steps to the beach which is very clean and smooth. Loved walking the beach and going for swims the whole week i was there. No life guard, Coffee machine in room takes 4 cups of water and makes 1.5 cups of coffee. Bathroom is dated. The shower head looks like a $10 special and they need to do a better job cleaning up the ceiling which often has spiders nests. We moved rooms (from RM 102) as first rooms had cockroaches and the 3 electrical outlet had 1 of 2 sockets not working. Maintenance was not able to shut down the power to the room because electrical box was not marked. While changing the socket the maintenance person shorted the socket and burned the new outlet. Replacement room had no bathroom fan. No space in main lot to park our car.
Walk out and you are the best beach in Maui, according to locals. Great happy hour at 5 Palms. Unfortunately they have not updated rooms. Noisey a/c and really small rooms.
Excellent location - the inn is right on the beach. Resturant next to the inn was no problem. Easy to get to other beaches in Wailea and no parking issues. Rooms are small but clean. Microwave and fridge perfect for early breakfast before climbing Haleakala! The air conditioner made this horrible sound as it cycled through and would wake us up. Other then that it was perfect for our needs.
They make it look a lot better in the pictures than it actually is, not very good for what I paid
The location is great. The hotel is less than 100 yards from the beach and approximately 25% of the rooms have an ocean view. Rooms are very clean and the beds very comfortable. The location is nice just outside the main bustle of Kihei but only 2-3 minutes drive from the restaurants & shops. The hotel is a great value for dollar. The hotel shares a parking lot with Sarento's restaurant and several of the parking places are reserved for the restaurant's valet parking and that is fine. The problem is that if you even think about parking in a Sarento's spot, a restaurant employee will be in your face before you shut the car off, but neither the restaurant or hotel says or does anything about restaurant patrons (wishing to avoid the valet charge) parking in hotel spaces.
The area that we were in we like to be there as close to the ocean nice rooms The AC unit was loud
Simplicity, the closeness to the beach & other places around. Easy check in and easy check out. Television in the room had many channels to offer. Perfect place to stay if you're just going to be out and about. Would stay here again for another weekend. Would recommend to others if they're not planning to stay in their hotel room. One of the maids just opened the door assuming no one was staying in the room. The parking was small aside from the public parking in the rear for beach access. Was not comfortable leaving the car there. The packet for the sugar for the Keurig in the room was already opened. Assuming that it was the last folks who stayed in the room. It was not replaced with a new pack.
Oceanfront! The beach is gorgeous and great to have the 5 Palms and Sorrento's restaurants on either side. Free parking and wifi. Though the room was small, it was air conditioned and the bed was very comfy. Would recommend the Days Inn in Maui to anyone traveling on a budget! Small room. Could hear our neighbour's through the walls. Though the AC unit helped drown them out.
The customer service was expedient and very pleasant. Maui is very expensive but this is a very economical choice. You get what you pay for. Just real happy the rooms are air conditioned, it was hot! It was small and a bit old but good enough for me. Hey, I don't go to Maui to sit in my room all day and night.
Thirty second walk to beach. A/C Was hanging over the bed. Room was small and smelled like mildew. Be prepared to go to sleep late and wake up early from noise from restaurant, neighbors and parking lot.
Price and upgade
This place had everything that we expected and the Beach was great you could go rite from your hotel snorkeling I recommend this place a return Everything
Huge room. Gorgeous views. Huge tub. Beautiful tile work. Big kitchen. Washer and dryer The beds were just awful. They were rock hard and not comfy at all. The pillows were small. Had a very hard time sleeping. No coffee maker!!!
Our one bedroom unit worked well. We ate in or out as suited us. Nice 3.5 mile beach trail starts in a park just south of the property; good for running and walking, but could be contested in spots. we had full access to the timeshare immediately south, and frequented the happy hour at their beach/pool bar and their lounge chairs. Grounds were lush and attractive. Beach was nice to look at, but not very useable, as it was small and the surf was high. Too small even for lounging. Next door was better.
The view and the pools are very nice and I was impressed with them. The food and drinks were just average. I understand that more people cook themselves in this type of property and not to expect a five star experience. The service was weak and inattentive in the restaurant, enough to get you your meal, but mostly feeling in different.
This place is beautiful... almost heaven-like. The pools are separated into mini pools so you can hang out by yourself or with your own group that gives you the feeling of you own the entire pool. The garden is just beautiful. Staff are friendly and attentive. Housekeeping is not very thorough sometimes, but still gets an A-. Not too thrilled about having to pay $30/night for valet parking. And feeling obligated to tip them every time we need to get our car or have it parked. The resort fee of $40/night should include valet parking.
The views here are world class. If I was a troll, I would have posted "1 star, ocean is too loud, couldn't sleep", but honestly, it's been such a dream spot. Plenty to do right here, and not a far drive from the rest.
We stayed to the Mahana to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary, without kids. The staff was very helpful throughout the week. Upon check-in, they gifted us chocolates and a bottle of wine for our anniversary. A very sweet touch! Our condo was beautiful with a full size kitchen. Coffee and toiletry amenities included. Daily maid service was awesome. Loved having a washer and dryer in the condo. Beautiful views out of the floor to ceiling windows in the living room, bedroom, and lanai. Pool area was very nice (not too crowded) and everything is within walking distance! Saw sea turtles from our lanai. There are no other properties so close to the ocean. Nothing- We will bring the whole family next time.
Location! Away from the touristy area packed with hotels. Luxurious grounds, quiet setting. Not enough parking. Kapalua Villas is located within the large resort complex. Although they offered a nice complementary shuttle service anywhere within the complex, we preferred to explore on our own using our rental car and limited parking spaces made it difficult.
The entire resort was really well maintained, had an amazing view of the ocean, liked the fact that the patios were huge. Really close proximity to the beach. Convenient store inside the resort was very useful and had good breakfast. Even though the resort itself was really well maintained, the unit itself was outdated and had issues like the TV remote did not work, patio door was broken and hard to open and close. Kitchen was very outdated as well.
Customer Service exceeded my expectations!!!
The 1 bedroom condo units are very spacious and well-designed. You feel like you're living at the beach rather than escaping your room for outings. We did not hear any noise from nearby units except when the maids were moving patio furniture to clean. Our unit could have used a larger living room TV (approx. 25in CRT) as it was dark by 6pm and we just wanted to watch a movie at night. (TV size varies with the individually-owned units.) It was particularly nice to have a washer & dryer in the unit.
Friendly staff. Everything exceeded our expectation
I liked the location, the comfort and spaciousness of our room, and could appreciate the efforts beiing made by the property to upgrade its facilities. I did not like the fact that we were not informed prior to arrival that construction was going on. To be fair, the hotel reduced our rate after I complained.
Beautiful accommodations, great location with amazing beachfront access. The condo units are very well stocked with supplies.
Close to the beach and restaurants Kitchen for cooking is very convenient and well stocked with utensils The pullout bed was very uncomfortable - these villas should only be for 2 people - not 4. Also the price is very high and there was no mention of service fee of $15/ day until you arrive and checkin. Also at the tour desk they try and sell/ push trips on you.
The suite was very spacious, with a kitchen, two separate bedrooms, two large bathrooms, and a large sitting area. There were 3 TVs in case you were staying in. The room was right next to the beach and had access to facilities such as a large swimming pool. There was also free WiFi. Nothing was done poorly.
