“Boutique condo”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Recent room upgrades have made this resort a little gem. Open concept kitchen, dining area, living room and lanai, makes for a relaxing & spacious enviroment. Ground floor units have the space advantage of the lawn/garden, so that the condo seems to extend out further. The beach was very clean, with no seaweed, so there's no need to drive to other beaches. Sunsets are spectacular here and the location is convenient, without being in a really busy area. No high rises to be seen, adding to the beauty of the location. Pool area is adequate, but not my thing, as I have a perfectly clean pool at home and prefer the sand/surf. A great stay here!

Room Tip: ocean front 'A' building is the first choice

We've been owners at the Maui Schooner for many years. We've been through several refurbishments, but the latest major renovation has totally updated the condos. The staff is excellent, the grounds are beautiful ... and you have to see the sunsets to believe all the spectacular colors! We're still recalling our 2013 visit, looking forward to our 2014 visit, and 2015 is already reserved.

Beautiful grounds, and the units are nicely updated. Smallish side, not a b I g complex. Beautiful Maui sunsets over the ocean!! Beautiful views, either ocean view or pool/grounds view, truly paradise! I love this place.

Room Tip: A building has ocean views, B building pool views. Both are good, all units have a beautiful view.

We have been owners for over 7 years and are very happy with the renos that have recently been done to keep the resort in great condition. The grounds are always immaculate and beautiful. The staff is always friendly, helpful and prompt with their services. we really feel like the schooner is our home away from home. The location is great for families with restaurants like the Outback close at hand as well as Safeways. You are close to Wailea and the Oceanarium and can take a drive to Lahaina. We love it!

My wife, and two children have been staying at the Maui Schooner for seven years now and love the location of the resort, how quite it is and how accommodating the staff are. I've never seen grounds that are more finely manicured in my life! There are several bar B Ques available, the beach chairs and cooler in the room are a nice touch. I am impressed that they are continuously upgrading and maintaining the resort. I would recommend the Maui Schooner to ANYONE!

We've now been at the Maui Schooner three times on a timeshare exchange - it's never our first choice but it's consistently the first place on Maui where we get confirmed. We've now been in the A building once (great ocean views) and the B building twice (partial ocean views at best). The grounds are decent; the pool area is OK, but it's a short walk (less than 5 minutes) to the beach and there are tennis courts and lots to see and do in Maui. This time we discovered a little mentioned and wonderful place to visit - the NOAA Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Center Visitor Center at 10 minute walk down South Kihei Road. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Wonderful staff. Lacks a fitness center though there are discounts at some that are nearby (still not as good as having one on-site and I never went as a result).

Room Tip: Top floor rooms in B Building have an open loft with the master bedroom. We didn't want that wi...

We banked our 2BDR week through Trading Places in San Diego. We called way ahead to get a QUIET unit. They said they can only assign us at the hour we arrive (1st-come-1st-serve, like a hotel). We stressed so bad, that by the time we got in, it was 6PM, as they closed the office. We got the last/worst unit B205 (next to noisy elevator, and next to the construction project 7:45am-4:30pm hydraulics). we told the lady at check-in that it is our 43rd wedding anniv. No use. No sample shampoo. Bedrooms are by the elevator hallway and the yard with the heavy diesel equipment. Cannot sleep in either BDrms. Construction goes Saturday, Sunday!! Trying to rest on the sofa at 10am... balcony faces the pool with yelling children for 6 hours... Signs are posted all over "Quiet - guests resting" --- HOW ? Wife has HAD it... wants OUT ! All hotels are full. We drag one mattress into the livingroom so we can rest til 0830 (like camping). That helped. But we came to RELAX. That means, easy mornings.
NO - - jackhammering, kids yelling, and gardeners' weed-eaters screaming for hours...all at the same time. I could not be heard. Then we see a posting in the elevator, saying Wed+Thurs is a good day to be away. We only could tolerate 2 out of 7 days. And Trading Places manages this resort. Their web site should disclose these events, so we would decline this trade. AND LATE checkout = $100/hr.
The kitchen was fine. 5 out of 6 pillows were too stiff... causing stiff neck.
What WAS nice at this place ? Breezy. Parking. WiFi. Walk to beach. That's about it. Will NOT be back.
Management - TELL contractors NO WORK on weekends. And a Sign at the Pool "QUIET...Guests resting", and pool hours 10am-8pm. THEN, you will have an Average resort. Just listen to your customers. We do the trading.

Room Tip: Building-A. Get out by 08:00 and back at 8pm...like a hotel. This is NOT for R&R. Bring shampoo.
