“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

When we arrived in Maui the plan was to spend one night at the Inn at Mama's Fish House and eat at there restaurant and then drive to Hanna from there. We reserved a studio but were upgraded to a one bedroom when we arrived. The room was clean and comfortable. It was supplied nicely with fruit and banana bread for breakfast the next morning. It was very spacious and had a nice patio. There was no ocean view from our room. We were located in the back parking lot next to the restaurant. You did not notice that though because the patio is fenced in and decorated nicely with plants. If you want a great view then you need to go to the front of the Restaurant. The setting is stunning! Personally we would not want to say there for a week but for a few nights it was great. We would stay again and I would recommend a few nights there.

Husband and I stayed here for our first two nights on Maui, and we really enjoyed it. We stayed in the studio cottage and it was great. The bed was very comfortable and the suite seemed to have everything you could possibly need. Kitchen was well stocked with so many convenient items. They also provided a nice welcome plate with complimentary papaya, bananas, lime, banana bread and coffee. We had dinner at Mama's Fish House one of the nights and because we were staying at the inn, we got 15% off our meal. All around, great job Mama's!

Room Tip: Studio cottage is a great value.

We stayed in a two-bedroom garden cottage for a week. The good things were the little touches like fresh flowers in the room, welcoming banana bread and great maid service. The bad things were noise issues in the cottages, the fact that there's no swimming beach, no pool, no ability to walk to town (unless you want to walk on the highway for two miles), and essentially no facilities at all for guests. The "Inn" is really an afterthought to the restaurant which is great, but overpriced.

I loved my stay at Mama's.
We were a family in a two bedroom unit. The little touches delighted us. Fruit and little nibbles were left for the traveler. Lovely dishes and items needed for cooking were pleasing. The suite had an old Hawaiian feel to it, not to cooky cutter new, and we so appreciated the private outdoor BBQ and dining area.
We made mai tai's and wondered down to the beach on our first evening. There in lies the only problem we encountered, one has to go thru the restaurant reception area to and from the beach. The host was concerned that we were carrying drinks to and from the beach. I understand, but it seems this confusion needs correcting.
The service offered was outstanding. I expect good service, but this was really outstanding. We will love to return.
It is true there is no noise privacy, so if that is an issue for you maybe another place would be better. However, for us this was a delightful place.

Room Tip: If you want complete noise privacy get two separate rooms. If you want a fantastic family experience...

Absolutely adorable place. We stayed in the Malolo Cottage. Georgeous beach front views. Adorable patio space. Beach is directly ahead. Staff is great. Of course Mama's Fish House is amazing. Only downside to cottage is one bathroom for 2 bedroom cottage. But so what? You can't go wrong staying here.

We stayed in a "2 bedroom" garden cottage one night. It was lovely with nice touches and thoughtful service, but it was a real stretch to call it 2 bedrooms. Yes, there was a wall between the two, so there was privacy in terms of visibility, but in terms of noise privacy there was none. You might as well have been sleeping right next to each other -- this is not an exagerration. If you know the amazing artwork of the construction of Mama's Fish House, you may be expecting the same. Don't. It's pretty average cheap beach duplex construction. The tile floor and furnishings are nice, but otherwise - pblllt. Not worth the price. It was convenient to finish dinner and just walk over to our room, but I wouldn't stay there again.

My husband and I spent a night at the Inn at Mama's Fish House on our recent trip to Maui to celebrate our anniversary. We were going to Hana and didn't want to make the drive right after flying in from San Francisco. Mama's Fish House was on the itinerary for a special dinner, so we thought it would be convenient to just stay at the Inn our first night. What a great idea! I wish we were staying longer!
We were greeted warmly upon arrival and personally escorted to Ulua - our room. Ulua had everything we could have imagined and more - open, light filled space with kitchen, living area, washer and dryer, a loft - plus we received fresh fruit, kona coffee and a loaf of delicious banana bread! Our bed was so comfortable, we slept great!
If you have ever been to Mama's, you know that it sits on a beautiful beach. Our room had beach chairs and towels so we were able to take in the fresh air after a stuffy plane ride.
Dinner could not have been more convenient as we could walk through a gate to enter Mama's restaurant. If you have not been to Mama's you are missing out. The menu changes daily and includes fresh caught fish complete with the names of the fisherman, boat and area it was caught! Yum.
The Inn at Mama's Fish House was the perfect spot for a special event, but we will be back again and plan on staying longer next time.
Thank you Mama's!!
