Better holiday site than we thought!
Posted Feb 16, 2017
Though very close to the main Maiu airport in Kahului, this hotel was a peaceful, comfortable oasis that was central to all Maui's offerings. The courtyard garden with whirlpool and swimming pool (both with handicap accessibility) was never busy and lounge chairs and tables were arranged attractively within the plantings. The bistro had a good variety of light meal offerings and the lounge was spacious and comfortable (though CNN was always on).
We stayed 11 days, a rarity since most visitors were only there just after arriving or before take-off. But our room looked out over palm trees and the garden, had a coffee-maker and fridge for our snacks, and we made great use of the courtyard when we weren't off swimming or hiking. There were great beaches a short drive away which were vastly less crowded than the Kihei to Kapalua stretch, since they weren't advertised. The road to Hana, upcountry hikes towards Haleakula, restaurants and the beaches and hot-spots of the west side were a short hop away.
