We stayed as a family at this hotel, having two rooms with an interconnecting door. The views over the gardens and whale-shaped swimming pool were perfect and across to the ocean. I loved being able to hear the ocean from the room. The staff were welcoming and friendly, breakfast was great and when we ate dinner at the hotel, we had a great choice of menu and everything was beautifully presented. The swimming pool did get rather busy at the weekend but on the other days, it was a relaxing environment as the grounds stretch right across towards the beach (there is a little path to cross over to the sand). We found Whalers Village disappointing, as there were very few restaurants, several top-end shops selling art and jewellery, so we used to go into Lahaina in the evening where there was a much better choice of restaurants and interesting shops. The bus also stopped at a mall which had clothes shops and a pharmacy/drug store for toiletries and suntan lotions. The walk along the path between the beach and the hotels was enjoyable with views across the ocean but the sea was too rough for young children - we used to get voicemail messages on the phone in the hotel room warning us not to swim in the ocean!! Great for surfing and we used to enjoy watching the experts. We went on a fantastic whale-watching & snorkelling trip out to the Molokini crater and loved seeing the turtles (Pride of Maui) Wi-Fi didn't seem to work as it should - but Starbucks in the Cannery Mall had free Wi-Fi.
