Fantastic experience

We loved our stay. Ocean front was ocean front! I was worried about that after reading some other reveiws of different areas. Has an ocean stone wall just outside the ocean front rooms. Steps lead directly to the water but can walk the the end of the property to access beach. Not bad. We snorkled (Pacific Whaler Foundation), hiked, zipped lined (Eco Adventures was great "8 zipes"). Luau, road to Hana tour, surgar cane museum, Maui Ocean Acquarium. And more. All great!

Maui Revealed book. Read it first. Go to the front desk for the morning presentation the hotel offers first or second morning to schedule activities for the week. It was a big help.

Refuge from Hurricane Felicia

We didn't really become aware of Hurricane Felicia until we saw the update on teh check in desk. The staff was very helpful and kept us abreast of the status of the storm and assured us that we were in no real danger. However, they did reccommend we stock up on non-perishables and flash lights. We were unable to see the sights we had to see, maybe next time? We were suprised to learn that the units are actually condos that are individually owned and managed by Resort Quest.

Great views at affordable price

We stayed there for a couple of nights (Oceanfront room), the views were perfect. Rooms were well equipped with every thing you might need for a lengthy stay. At the price pretty hard to beat.

Quite family getaway

Very nice place. I liked the hotel and one bedroom. There was no sand beach in front of the hotel,but the view from the balcony was beautiful. You can walk to the next hotel's beach which is very nice for swimming and snorkeling.

Papakea - ask for renovated unit

We have stayed at the Papakea several times over the last decade since a family member owns a timeshare. F109 has a superb view of the ocean but is not a renovated unit. Compared to other units, it looks old & needs some maintenance. Also there were lots of ants in the bathroom & kitchen - maybe this is because it's a ground level unit, but it was still gross to try to cook while killing ants.

Down to earth and wonderful!

First off the Papakea is for someone who knows where to go and who has been to the island before. There is no restaurant or bar on site; however, there are great places within walking. You could drive 10 miles north or south and find wonderful places to eat, relax, and/or snorkel. You just need to live Aloha on this one. The staff is wonderful. Treat them well and please respect the lands of Hawai'i and everything will be just fine. Just remember to slow down and really think about why you are there.

Mile Marker 14 just south of Lahiana is great for snorkeling...Don't touch the coral please...you can kill it. Boss Frogs Dive Shop is the best for your snorkel gear (cheap and friendly). Try not to speed and respect everyone. Your on vacation...act like it and relax.

Awesome vacation

The hotel was above my expectations for the price I paid. The interior was very nice with new carpet and granite counters. Every room has a good view of the ocean and the coy ponds, which are very beautiful. It wasn't very crowded and is in a great location. The only downside is there's not really a beach there. You have to walk a bit to get to the nearest beach, but it's not too bad. Overall, I was very impressed with the hotel and would definitely stay there again. It's a beautiful hotel without having to pay an arm and a leg. Two thumbs up.

Not too bad...

The site is great and the resort as a whole looks very inviting. I dont know if we were just given a subpar room, but the flooring needed replacing, the carpet was fraying, dirty, and the walls needed a new paint job or at least a wash to clean the gunk off. The room looked very outdated. However, I know that they had better rooms and if you get one of those, you should enjoy your vacation.

affordable and convenient

The hotel had 2 pools that were quiet and sufficient. Nothing fancy, but comfortable and relaxing. They also have BBQ grills so if you want to pick up some steaks and grill, it is a good way to save some money and enjoy the pool. The hotel was not fancy and luxurious, but you cant beat the price. Everything was clean and the hotel is in a great location so everything is close by. There is even a supermarket within walking distance.
