Wonderful family holiday

Great value resort located on a beautiful beach in Maui. We took advantage of the Valet/Mai Tai deal which was terrific value. Very peaceful location and to be honest is probably better suited to Honeymooners or couples - we visited the other side of Black Rock which was a lot busier and more lively.......I think with 2 teenagers this would probably have been a better option for us. It is also closer to food and shopping options. Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed our time and all staff were very friendly and helpful.

Nice

Lovely location, we stayed in a cottage which was behind the pool and beach bar, great. A couple of negatives, the air conditioner is extremely noisy and the wifi which is complimentary doesn't really work in cottage but good in lobby.

Great location. Plenty of room to move. Right on pristine beach. Room great on 5th floor excellent partial view of the beach.Snorkelling just a short walk to black rock or Kahekili beach park. Hire the gear at snorkel store up the road at the shops. Golf course. Easy dining in restaurant with entertainment. The beach walk keeps you fit and you can have all sorts of dining in any direction. Do not go without a visit to Fleetwoods in Lahaina. Relax and have a fantastic Maui experience

Not at all like the pictures or description

We stayed in a cottage type room, it was extremely run down, dirty,with a gap contouring the entire door. I had called guest room services to come and wash the mold that surrounded the light , the girl assured me the room would be cleaned by the time we would get back from breakfast. It was not! Luckily we were only booked for 2 nights and moved to the Westin.

Fantastic Location

We were very happy with this property, great view and location. Room was not ready on arrival but was upgraded to an ocean front to make up for time waiting which was great. View sensational. Only drawback I found was that the hotel restaurant had a limited menu so if you did not wish to go out for dinner you did not have much choice. breakfast choice was very good and staff were helpful and friendly. would not hesitate to stay there again.

Look elsewhere first

Arrived at the resort and was checked in by the friendly staff at the reception then taken to our cottage. We dropped our bags in the room and left straight away for a walk up the beach. Upon returning to the room we were settling in for our stay when we noticed a wet patch on the carpet next to the bed, this wet patch smelt like urine. I contacted the front desk and reported this, and the staff member questioned me as to how it got there and how long we had been in the room, then he proceeded to say it was just from the carpet cleaning. I requested they come and look at the carpet as this needed to be resolved immediately. After an hours wait no one from the hotel had arrived to look at the carpet so I had to attend the front desk to again request someone look at the carpet. Again waiting another Hour before a room attendant arrived and agreed it was a wet urine patch and notified his manager. This room attendant then disinfected the carpet, phone and surrounding area before leaving. It was 2.5 hours after I first reported the issue I received a call from the rooms manager who advised me it was a leak from the Air conditioning unit, when I advised this was incorrect and she rudely raised her voice to me and said 'It is and that's that, so now we are moving you to another cottage closer to the water which should make you happy'. If the manager had made the effort to attend to speak to me in person she would have seen the air conditioning unit was 12-15 feet from the wet spot in the carpet and was not the cause of the wet patch. Over all my partner and myself were very disappointed with the way we were treated by the manager and the room we ended up with was not what we booked. The rooms are run down and need some refreshing. The Royal Laihana was recommended to us but I can say I would not recommend this place to anyone I know visiting Maui. I would consider looking at other options before choosing this hotel.

Fleetwoods on Front Street. Owned and operated by Mick Fleetwood from Fleetwood Mac. The service and meals were excellent. We booked a day prior for their traditional sunset ceremony. Live entertainment was also great. A must to visit when in Maui

Wonderful stay but...

Had a most amazing time at the resort and was upgraded to a deluxe ocean view room however as I have previously read on the hotels reviews the food was less than average and quite expensive. $23 for a buffet. Despite deciding not to eat there we had breakfast twice, once ordered off the menu the second time the buffet. I was so shocked to find out the breakfast ordered off the menu was taken straight out of the buffet and not made to order.... Neither day was the food hot... I guess the hotel must be aware of the dissatisfaction by all the negative reviews but still continue to serve it. I highly recommend going down to Whalers Village where they have a great range of food from restaurants to takeaway... The beach out front is awesome... I love Mauii and would be happy to go back to the resort for the price.

Great value. A little bit out of the main area of Lahaina but this is what we were looking for on our holiday and fine if you have a car - something i would recommened anyone considering stay here does. Food was quite good and costs were more than reasonable.
