Ritz or Marriott Vacation Club

We are traveling to Maui at the end of February and can't decide if we should stay at the Ritz in Kapalua or the Marriott Vacation Club in Lahaina. we are looking for a GREAT hotel, something luxurious, good weather and family friendly ( traveling with our two year old). I am tempted towards the Ritz because of the brand reputation and the free buffet daily ( thinking this will help cut our food budget). But I am also leaning towards the Marriott for the location and the larger room (ocean front villa)

Does anyone have any feedback .

Well the Ritz will definitly give you more luxury but in Feb. it *may* be rainier and windier up in Kapalua.

The Marriott would give you more space and walking access to shops and dining.

I'd opt for the Marriott in February.

If the Marriott is the Timeshare, you will have more room. Better with the baby. You also have a small kitchen.

Have a great trip. Enjoy Maui

Safe travels

It seems from the posts that the Ritz is out. What about the Fairmont in Wailea?

The Fairmont is great. Stayed there before we started doing Kapalua Villas all the time. All the rooms are suites so there is a lot of space and usually great weather...as long as no winter storm that takes over the island. Great service as well.
