Papakea or Valley Isle?

I've been searching for a couple weeks for the best deal on a oceanfront, or very good oceanview condo on the West side Maui, pretty much as close to Ka'anapali as I can get, but still at a reasonable rate. These are the two I've found meet that criteria at about $125-135 a night in June. Which do you prefer and what are some of the pros and cons of each? Do you know others in the area that would have comparable rates? Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

I just stayed at Valley Isle and liked it very much. The views were gorgeous and overall, the resort was pretty quiet. There were not many amenities at the resort, ie: no hot tub, exercise facility was for fee, etc. Other than that, loved it very much. Would stay there again.

We really love the Valley Isle, and have stayed there the last three times we were on Maui, unit 407. Specacular views! No fancy resort stuff here, but we don't need that, just clean and quiet. But I'm sure Papakea is nice, too.

Either way, you'll have a great time.

We've stayed 3rd floor, oceanfront in bdlg 'A' at Papakea 3 or 4 times. Never heard footsteps from above or much noise at all from adjacent units. Ocean front views from just about any W Maui condo will be great. lots of little shops and stores within walking distance of Papakea.

Make sure you are getting an ocean front room; those views can't be beat and are full frontage. The "back building" has partial views and vary a lot on which room you get. The back rooms start with the numbers 1xx, 2xx or 3xx. Rooms 4xx,5xx etc are on frontage.

Be aware that the Valley Isle will be undergoing clean up from June 7 and all month of the big fire mess next to the building. Also, and on-going "spalling repair" project is underway, and there will be jack-hammering and working platforms hanging on the outside of where they are working...and you MAY have your lanai locked and unavailable for up to 2-3 days.
