This was a trip that I won from my work along with about 300 other employees. I had also won the trip the previous year at the 4 season oahu. This was a complete let down compared to the previous year. And you think Oahu is way more crowded and less pleasant than Maui, right?

We had a five night stay at Ritz. Highly recommend the ground floor rooms as you walk directly outdoors. Very comfortable beds. Disappointed that the Banyan Tree restaurant was not open during our stay.

If we could do it again, we would not have stayed here for our honeymoon time in Maui. My husband and I have stayed at other Ritz-Carltons around the world, and this property fell flat in terms of level of service, especially considering it was our honeymoon. This is an occasion

Aloha Inter-nat-nal – I appreciate you taking a moment to share your review.

We are continually looking for ways to improve our guest experience and as a valued guest, we take your feedback seriously. We did have to make some additional and unforeseen repairs to our restaurant and I apologize that it had a negative impact on your overall experience.

Is there a kids pool?
There's a toddler pool with small water features. As for a kids pool, the two lower pools are for anyone. They don't have water features though, so parents will definitely need to provide entertainment. This hotel isn't ideal for kids 6-15.

The Kapalua Bay course does not belong to the Ritz Carlton but you can have the concierge book you a tee time. The world famous plantation course is also close by and the resort shuttle can take you there.
