Fantastic solo Maui getaway
Posted Oct 6, 2017 on Expedia
This hotel was right on the beach in a beautiful, convenient, and quiet area. The hotel amenities were great: general store and the spa in the Konea building (my building), Duke’s restaurant and bar right on the property, and a stand to get snorkel gear and towels. The room was more than spacious, especially for one person, and had everything I wanted: fully equipped kitchen, but no spices or staples like cooking oil. There was a washer and dryer that I was happy to have but did not use. The location was very convenient as I stayed on the west and north west side of the island for most of my trip. But I do recommend renting a car to get around. Overall, this hotel had everything I wanted and more. My spa Hawaiian Lomi lomi massage by Caitlyn was fantastic. So relaxing but therapeutic as well. There was great snorkeling in the ocean right outside the hotel property and a little further south as well. I rented a surfboard just on the other side of the highway at Maui Surfboards. And Times supermarket was within a short walk from my building. The only two tiny complaints I have: 1) checkin was supposed to be 3pm according to Expedia, but they told me 4pm and then my room wasn’t actually ready until about 4:15pm. 2) when I returned to my room, air from the AC smelled a little like cigarette smoke. But after being in the room for a bit, I didn’t notice it anymore. All in all, this hotel was great and I would love to stay here again.
