Hide Away in Lahaina

Beautiful Lahaina property, located close to old town action but peaceful to stay. Shopping, dining, oceanfront activities are near enuf to walk to. Caution: neighboring side streets, and the property itself, are not well lit after dark, which can be challenging to older eyes; pack a flashlight & carry it if you'll be out late. Well-equipped in-unit kitchens save $; restaurants tend to be pricy (Aina Nalu itself has no restaurant). Decor is understated, elegant, modern, very upscale Hawaiian but in quiet colors, so it's restful, and everything is sparkling clean. The landscaping is gorgeous and jungle-y, it feels like Jurassic Park. Nature surrounds you at Aina Nalu - be ready to not run over [apparently] feral chickens in the parking lots. Pools: delightful, very tucked away inside what feels like a private hideaway compound (which it is!). Staff: helpful & accommodating. No elevators, tho, & stairways are wood, open, and awkward with heavy bags or in rain. Extra fees for parking & cleaning were a bit of a surprise. Overall, the entire property has the ambience of a classy tropical retreat; just staying here will make you feel special.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you fly in, pick up a rental car, & drive to Lahaina from Kahului - stop at WalMart there for cheaper groceries (and/or beach supplies, t-shirts, etc.) than you'll find in Lahaina... tho once you get there, a Safeway's not far & has better price than the closer Foodland or several ABC stores - tho those have the advantage of being walkable. The printed plastic shopping bags they sell (Maui County no longer allows stores to use the light plastic bags we're all used to) make great inexpensive souvenirs and/or practical gifts for folks at home; I use them all the time in Illinois and Wisconsin, and everyone I've given them to loves them too (plus - take your own bags to Foodland, and they'll give you a discount, tho you may have to sign up for their 'membership' card, I don't recall... but you may as well, it's free!). If you buy too much - for sending stuff home, the post office provides free boxes that ship for a fixed price no matter how heavy you've packed them.

Tiny, dark studio - beware!!!

We were very disappointed with this place!!! We've stayed at Aina Nalu before in a one bedroom and enjoyed our stay, but somehow this time we were booked into a tiny, dark studio. When I checked my reservation it didn't say studio (but it didn't say one bedroom either.) The staff said that the low price indicated studio, but I just assumed we would be in another one bedroom when I booked it. The room was so depressing, and there was very little walking space. When I asked to move to a one bedroom, a very snippy clerk told me there weren't any available. Also, don't be surprised when you have to pay a nightly parking fee. The location is great, however. You can easily walk to fun restaurants and shops in downtown Lahaina. Make sure you find out if you are getting a one bedroom before you commit to this place!

Hidden Fees!!!

Hidden fees not listed when I made reservation. $17 a day for parking and $95 cleaning fee that is not optional. On the listing says maid service available if requested for a fee. It's mandatory. Plus they had $110 charge on our card when we checked. Ended up being charged an extra $247 upon check in. Lady at the front desk could only tell us it was for cleaning and parking. Had to call the accounting department to find out what the charges were for.

Beautiful resort

Enjoyed our stay here. The room was nice and the grounds were beautiful. Really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The bathroom had a nice large shower, large sink area and lots of linens. The beds were comfortable and the living//dining/kitchen area was roomy. Have never stayed in this town and don't know that we would choose someplace away from a beach again. We stayed south of here all week and needed a place for 2 nights. This place was offered at a good price so we booked it. Parking was very limited everywhere. Only paid parking at the resort. The staff said we could park on the street, but parking was very hard to find and most parking was limited to 3 hours! Right in the heart of town so if that is where you want to be I recommend this place. Everything is within walking distance. Pros: Nice sized rooms, very clean, beautiful salt water pool, large hot tub, beautiful grounds, large shower, lots of linens, nice location in town, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Cons: paid parking, away from beach, no views, staff was not very helpful, borderline air conditioning..

Aina Nalu

This hotel is located in an ideal place where you can access the downtown Lahaina readily. Also a full set of cooking utensils is provided in the kitchen which is very convenient if you want to make your food on your own. I highly recommend it.

Expected a Little More...

Our condo had a nice, large kitchen area and space for our party of five which was wonderful. There were problems like a lot of dust/dirt in the slats of the laundry room door, and well as behind all of the doors in the unit. There were also some strange little bugs running in the kitchen and bathroom areas, even though we kept the unit closed up. Some units have a lanai, which we expected to have as well when we booked, but our unit did not have one. Overall, the condo was basic, mostly decent, but I would not stay there again. The location, however, is just blocks from the downtown Lahaina area, which is excellent if you are looking for activities, shopping and food locations!!

Sons wedding

We were not happy and we will never stay there again. We had to pay for house keeping, extra for towels, and $15.00 a day for parking. One side of the bed was against the wall,not easy to get in and out of the bed.You need to make people aware of the extra charges, we felt like we were staying in a hole in the wall.

Complete Kitchen and very nice bathrooms

We enjoyed our stay at Aina Nalu because the kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms were exceptionally nice. Having the kitchen allowed us to make breakfast before exploring the beautiful island of Maui.

Excellent accommodations

We loved the condo style hotel accommodations. It was quiet and the amenities were great. It is within two blocks walking to all the main stores and restaurants in Lahaina.
