We are going to maui for part of our honeymoon next august, and after doing a lot of research decided we want to stay in Kaanapali rather than wailea, as it seems the more lively, and myself and my fiance are both 24 and want to see lots of things and go out. We will be hiring a car and decided we would drive down to wailea one day to spend some time there aswell. We really wanted to stay in the sheraton but since we are going on a 17 day honeymoon from the UK and the first part is in Vegas, last part in LA, we realised we couldn't afford it and, although initially sceptical about staying in a condo as we would have liked to stay in a resort, we have decided we will stay in the mahana, going on the reviews on tripadvisor. As a compromise, we are thinking of spending the first two days at the four seasons in wailea, thereby having the resort experience and spending some time in wailea in one go, and then move to the mahana for 6 nights. I'd really like to know if anyone else has had this kind of dilemma, or split their time between wailea and kaanapali and if it is a good idea? Would it be better to stay in sheraton for a couple of nights instead rather than splitting the time between two different areas? Or should we just stay in one place the whole time?
Any other suggestions?
