On February we arrived to Maui for our honeymoon with a pre payed reservation for an ocean view room. Not only the room was NOT ocean view, but it also seemed as they had just improvised the room for us. Practically no furniture, not even a chair, nothing on the walls. At first, when we talked to someone at the front desk, they agreed with us, told us they were overbooked and offered our money back for the remaining nights so that we could go to another hotel. They also said we could ask for a refund for the nights we stayed there because the room was not decent and certainly not what we booked. So we did, we changed hotels. Right now we are making a claim for those nights and they keep rejecting it. They should give us back the whole price for the nights that we stayed, but they won’t even pay the difference between a room with an ocean view and a regular one. Here are some pictures of our room and it’s view. Don’t stay here. Don’t waste your time or money.

I felt like I was taken care of from the start. The staff went above and beyond. Even when I locked myself out at 1 am. The staff really made it for me. But the place was also really cozy and comfortable. I slept like fat happy Baby everynight.

Outstanding hotel, location and staff. The hotel was very beautiful and located close to everything. The staff was helpful and amazing. The beach across the street was beautiful so we’re the grounds of the hotel. The rooms are huge and perfect for families.

We had a wonderful time here and the staff was amazing. There was an issue with our plumbing (it happens...) that was handled very well and quickly. The breakfast was outstanding and Tevita was awesome! JERRY JERRY JERRY! The central location is perfect: can easily drive to all places on the island since it is right in the middle and beach sunsets are amazing right across the street. We would love to come back soon!
