I'm not someone to write bad reviews so I will start with the positives. Our room was well decorated and clean with nice aveda products. The dinner we attended was excellent. We simply found this hotel was not what we thought it would be for the last night of our honeymoon. It is a bit of a splurge and felt it was certainly not worth. We had stayed elsewhere on Maui for the week and had a much better experience.
First of all, we were told check-in time was noon however we had to wait an extra 3.5 hours for it to be ready. Not the end of the world but annoying to be waiting for our room on the last day of our vacation when we could have been doing other things.
We got a "garden view" suite which actually faced the parking lot. People come and go for various classes so it was quite noisy with very little privacy. Overall there were very minimal ocean/mountain views from anywhere on the property.
Our room did not have AC. Again, not the end of the world but they should have mentioned this on their website. I understand they're an "Eco" resort and would like to save energy but this should be mentioned.
Another annoying thing was that the wifi reception was so poor we couldn't get it in our room and so had to head to the dining hall each time we wanted to access the internet.
Lastly, the complimentary breakfast was not up to our standards in the least which is surprising considering how great the dinner was.
In closing, I'm sure others have had a great experience at this resort but we found several annoying issues that added up over the course of our stay. Unfortunately it really wasn't how we wanted to spend the last day/night of our honeymoon when we paid the extra money to be somewhere special. Next time, we'll be sure to stat elsewhere.
