The room was large and on the 5th floor. 2 room suite was wonderful. Enough beds for the entire family. Beautiful views and lots of breezes and relaxation. No cleaning service though. Only down side. Parking was a little tight, but the place is very, very nice.

This was our third time at The Shores. Condo style rooms, so you have a full kitchen. There are two pools, and right on the beach. Grounds are really nice, so if you get a garden view room, it is really very beautiful.!! We have a time share at the Kasnapali Beach Club, next door, but prefer the Shores, as... More

We expected a studio, but got a 2 bedroom, 2 bath great room. It had a great patio, where we usually ate breakfast. Service was great. There is hardly any beach left and lots of rocks, so we just used the pool and went elsewhere to snorkel. Happy hour was nice, but restaurant is only medium.

Check in and out was a breeze! Our room was nice and located with a view of the beach. The room was pretty quiet....except once when someone walked outside our bedroom at night....it woke us up. Our air conditioner did not work the first night and they took care of it immediately. The hotel was clean and in a good... More

This was not a terrible but did leave a bit to be desired. The staff was friendly, linens clean, location close to grocery, and restaurants. View from balcony if you stood in the far corner was nice. Beach Front - NOT. On the water with no beach. Rooms out dated. No ceiling fans, dark with inadequate lighting. King sized bed... More

We are disappointed to read that these visitors were not completely satisfied with their experience, but do hope that they were able to enjoy the beauty of the island and the warmth of our people. We will certainly look into the condition of the bed they referenced, as well as the fridge. We thank them for their feedback. More

This resort was OK for the price. Keep in mind this place should only be considered for those who don't care about having a good beach right at your hotel. This beach was dirty, unmaintained and had a flow of brown water from the flood ways pouring into the ocean just a stones throw from where you sit. The beach... More

We appreciate these visitors sharing their feedback and were sorry to learn that they weren't pleased with the beach. Beach conditions are subject to ocean swell conditions and as such are ever changing. Just 3 months ago, the beach at Black Rock had almost no sand left on it (there were pictures in the local newspaper on this). There were... More

So lucky to be in Maui, spectacular views, huge balcony.. Nice outdoor pools,ocean front. But the apartment that we stayed in is dark,with heavy opressive furniture. There are no lights on the Lanai. There is nothing luxurious about this place. Then they add the insult. There is a 23$ a day resort fee, but that doesn't include the fitness room.... More

These folks were obviously a part of the same party that posted the review before this one.

Maui is one of the most beautiful places ever.. The suites at AKS, are not. Heavy,old style furnishing, in dreary colors. There is minimal lighting as well. The beds are firm and comfortable,but the pillows are, hard, thick,and no pliable. Definitely no extra niceties in the kitchen, but a full sized,usable kitchen..

We appreciate these visitors sharing their feedback and are sorry to learn that they felt the design colors were dreary.
