Hello my TA Friends!!!
Sorry it has taken me so long to post this...i've been licking my wounds since we left :( it was our third time to Maui, and it is simply magical! I cried when we landed, and cried when we left...
Day 1 - Left EWR for SFO at 8:30 am, flight was without incident. Connected in SFO at 2:20 PST and were lucky to score an upgrade to first class (upgraded with miles when we booked in June) so this leg was obviously the best :) We landed a half hour early (woo hoo!), booked it to baggage, then again to Budget (i'm a Fastbreak customer, so got in their special line and entrance to the left). We booked the car and hotel (RLR) through Costco and it was a steal! 5 nights partial ocean view and car for $1,200! But i digress...Got on the road and made it to the hotel by 6:30. Check it went well, asked for as high of a floor as possible, so they put us on 7 facing Lanai/Black Rock. ***I also asked about our last day and a hospitality suite or partial day charge because our flight was leaving late, and they said hospitality suite would be available BUT WASN'T, more on that later. only thing that snagged our stay:P **** ANYWAY, we went up to the room with the bellman and WOW! Gorgeous!!! Beautiful bed, bath, lanai, what more could you ask for at less that $200 a night! Loved it!!! So we freshened up and headed straight to Leilani's (drove because we were too tired, validated parking by restaurant) for our-first-night-in-Maui traditional dinner. We sat at the bar area as always, and I single handedly destroyed the pork nachos. I look little, but i can hang with best of them :) They are amaaahhzing! Walked back to the car, via ABC stores (like a moth to a flame, obsessed with that place..i'm one of those people who can tell you where the "good" ABC stores are haha) and headed back to the hotel, asleep by 10pm, which i was proud of! didn't think i would make it past 9!
Day 2 to come, more amazingness to be continued :)
