A hotel in need of updating... Posted Sep 8, 2015
The facility is not what you would expect. It is one of the first built in this section of Maui, and many of the bungalow suites need updating. Ours was one such. The roof was literally full of holes - no kidding, you could see daylight through the edge of the overhang about a foot of the way up. The bath and kitchen facilities were ancient, and one of the louvered windows lacked many sections of glass. There was a declivity in the floor of our upstairs unit, and I honestly didn't want to put too much weight on the floor right there. The furniture was outdated. We ate in the hotel restaurant once - unimaginative, but fairly priced cuisine. The grounds and pool area were just fine, in contrast, and the beach walk between this hotel and others nearby is quite pleasant. The shoreline itself is clean and safe. I realize the hotel IS upgrading several units, so if you go there, demand one of those. It is close to Lahaina and the dining and shopping zone. One more thing...the valet staff parks your car right by the front door, but if you want to self-park, it is a hike and the parking is limited with narrow slots. If you want to forego the valet parking, you will need to refuse to give them your keys at check-in.
