Overrated hotel

This hotel is overrated. The price is so high because you can walk out to beach. When we arrived the hotel at 3pm, the room is not ready. we have to wait 10 minutes and even the room is ready, the staff forget to call us. We've tried buffet on Friday night. The food is terrible and selection is limited. It charged $48 per person. It's not worth.

We have tried several restaurants in South Maui. Gannon restaurant is the best, although it's so expensive. The way to save money, buying gift card at Costco. You are paying $79.99 for $100 gift card. If you have time, you may go pineapple tour (Haliimaile). After tour, try Haliimaile General Store. It's also Gannon's restaurant, but this one is cheaper. Don't try MONKEY Pod when you are at South Maui. It's overrated. Food is terrible.
