Great hotel, but a little secluded.

Would recommend Thu, Jun 17, 2010
The grounds and the rooms were very beautiful. This is a very plush and relaxing hotel. It's a little further out there location wise, but makes for a great get away. I went with my two daughters, 22 and 25. It seemed a little more couple oriented, or for couples with young kids. Not really the best kind of place for two young girls in their 20's. However, we were very comfortable there.

Great Resort

Would recommend Tue, Jun 15, 2010
The Ritz-Carlton always impresses with service and atmosphere. I wish that one of the pools was restricted to adults only, but there was plenty of room. The location of the hotel is near many great restaurants as well, Merriman's, Pineapple Grill, and Sansai are all excellent.

Ritz Carlton just AWESOME

Would recommend Mon, Jun 14, 2010
The Ritz Carlton at Kapalau was excellent. They accommodated us when we were unable to reach the hotel due to a fire breaching the highway leading to the Ritz, but once finally there the next day the experience was all, but worth the frustration. The property sits in one of the most beautiful places on Maui. It is quiet, relaxing and gorgeous. The pool is fantastic as well as the beach. There is only one word which describes the personnel at the Ritz, awesome. From the servers at the pool, to the valets, and the cleaning crew everyone was there to make your life and stay seamless. The restaurants on the property served the best meals all trip. The Banyan tree and Kai Sushi bar were 5 star restaurants. Will definitely be back!

The swimming pools are fantastic at the ritz as well as the multiple walking distance beeches. Food seemed a little below par for a ritz hotel.

Idyllic Escape

Would recommend Mon, Jun 7, 2010
From check-in (free upgrade) to check-out (free extended check-out), this hotel experience ranked with the very best of our best. Before our first day was over, we were making plans about when we could come back. The hotel and grounds are simply gorgeous - ditto our accommodations (an OV suite that was HUGE!)- and staff are friendly and always aiming to please. There are 3 restaurants + beach and pool food/drink service; a well-equipped fitness center, limited shopping. And golf, golf, golf. Kapalua is about 20 minutes up the mountain from Tourist Central (Old Lahaina), which means it's quieter, more relaxing - and also cooler and breezier. There are taxis and the tour companies will pick up at the hotel, but we were very happy we rented a car so we could come and go as we pleased and also do some exploring on our own. Self-parking at the Ritz is free; otherwise, as to be expected, you pay Ritz prices at the Ritz. Also be prepared for high prices across-the-board in Maui. Even McDonald's will give you sticker shock! There's plenty to do in Maui, and so it's easy to lose whole days "on the road." For example, if you go on an organized tour, you will be the first pick-up and last drop-off because of the Ritz's location. Also to get to the major sights - like Haleakala, Road to Hana, Iao Valley - you have to first drive back to/through the airport area, and that's around an hour's drive one-way from Kapalua. So keep this in mind if your priority is relaxation. That said, we recommend you NOT skip a luau. We did Feast at Lele which was terrific; Old Lahaina Luau gets rave reviews as well. Also recommended: Ulalena show at Maui Theatre, Haleakala tour/visit and a helicopter tour. If you rent a car you'll be able to get off the beaten path and visit some of the small towns &/or other beaches. (BTW although we didn't do it this trip, it's very possible to go back/forth to Hana in a day, but as it's a very tough drive, you'll enjoy it more if there's more than one driver.) Hope your trip turns out as wonderfully as ours did!

Dining

There are several dining options within the Kapalua Resort area that are a short drive away from the hotel. To escape Ritz-y prices though, take a short walk up the road from the hotel to the Honolua store, or a 20-minute drive to Old Lahaina Town where there are choices at all price levels.

Almost Typical Ritz

Would not recommend Thu, Jun 3, 2010
!st Ritz we stayed in where Club Level offerings not comparable to other Ritz'. No open bar; had to request alcoholic drinks; not available 24 hours. Although staff was great! Too windy for pool, golf, or sitting on patio. All of the 8 nites we were there! Next time will stay in Wailea again. Hate getting "nickeled and dimed" for resort fee, parking, etc.

Attractions

Forget golf at The Plantation and Bay courses; wind impossible to battle. NOt worth $$$$. Cheaper and better courses in Wailea, no wind.
