Reviewed 26 December 2009

This is our second time booking ourselves at the Papakea with "Maui Dreams Come True", and unit B-308 was perfect for us. Great view, clean, nice lanai furniture, and listen to the waves all night. Wish we could have stayed longer!

This place is owned condominiums that are rented to guests. Depending on when the owner last renovated the condo, you may get a very nice one or a very poor one. We had a very poor condo. The Formica (yes, Formica) countertops were buckling, the sofa and chairs were dirty and on the verge of breaking apart. The woodwork was coming off the walls in places. The lanai (deck to us mainlanders) had out of date furniture. Oh yes, the air conditioner was a joke - a window unit installed in the patio window. It barely kept the living room cool and was useless for the bedroom.

We complained the day we checked in but were told they were full and no other accomodations were available. Since our stay was prepaid, we were stuck.

On the plus side, our condo had a beautiful view of the ocean. We spent most of our time on the lanai or out of the unit anyway, so we had a good time in spite of the poor accomodations. Also, we had a chance to see into another condo across the hallway from ours when the maid had the door open and it was beautiful. New furniture, granite countertops, terrific lanai furniture.

Anyway, be very careful with this property. It is a roll of the dice.

My husband and I went to Maui for the first time on December 1st 2009 and stayed 10 days. Our travel agent set us up at Papakea and we were both totally thrilled with the resort. We were upgraded to a one bedroom ocean view, D207, and we loved it. It did lack AC in the bedroom, but having the windows opened caused such a nice breeze that an AC was never needed. Everyone took care of our room and the grounds so nicely. Also the General Manager, left us a box of macadamia nut chocolates, a cute 3D bookmark and a bottle of champagne. My husband and I felt very special. We are already planning on going back next year. December is a beautiful time to be in Maui. It was 84 everyday and only rained once in 10 days. We also didn't mind not having a beach in front because we thought it kept all the people from walking through. It was very personable there.I have recommended Papakea to all my friends and family.

After selling our home on Maui, my husband and I lived at Papakea Resort for the month of November while looking for a long-term rental. Everything about Papakea was so wonderful that we would seriously love to find a long-term rental there!

I did not want to write the review so as to keep the hidden gem hidden.

This is an amazing place ..with breathtaking ocean views . We had an oceanfront balcony and i used to spend hours sitting there ...and infact its beautiful in the nights with the moon rays and the trees

Condo had the regular amenities which we are satisfied with.

The beach has waves and it is small. We actually did not even venture there..if we wanted to do the beach thing we went to Kapalua or other beach beaches

We stayed here to celebrate my 60th birthday in December. I researched a lot of places and decided on the Papakea. I made a perfect choice and it was everything I had hoped for. Beautiful grounds and the condo itself was charming and immaculate. So cozy and perfectly decorated with ocean theme and equiped with everything we could have asked for and more. I wish I could contact the owners directly because this place was great! It was peaceful and not a noisey high rise like some are. If you are looking for a loud party place, this isn't it. I will defintely go back to this condo! Thank you!

We stayed at the papakea Nov 25-Dec 2 and stayed in K-406. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! The views were amazing from our condo. We had a 2 bedroom with a loft. One thing is the beds were too firm and no air conditioning in the loft, but there was ceiling fans and the door to keep the place ventilated to keep it comfortable. No beach in front due to seawall, but can use the beach right next door. Staff was very friendly. ABC store and grocery store was nearby. Would definetly stay here again!!! :)
