Pros: This hotel is gorgeous! The lobby is a gorgeous garden, over looking the ocean. The pools are amazing. Water slides, water elevator, lazy rivers, swim up bar. "Baby Pool" is a beautiful sand bottom pool they call "baby beach". Staff was wonderful. Very friendly.
Cons: The prices are outrageous! There is no self parking-only valet at $30/day. $30 for a sandwich or hamburger. $8 for orange juice. If you stay here and have a car, much better to drive about 7min. to the town of Kihei for restaurants. Another con is that this resort is far away from any Maui activities.
We went with 3 kids. They had a blast on the water slides but at their prices, it's really not the best choice for a family resort. However, I'm not sure i'd choose it as an adult luxury getaway either because of all the kids and water park. We spent the other half of our trip at the Westin in Kanapali and enjoyed it much more. It's hard to enjoy the vacation when you are spending $200/meal.
