4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had the chance to stay there for 10 days and the experience was fantastic , the hotel is very clean and they clean our room every other day, the appliances were in very good standing , all rooms are very spacious and accommodate with a very large balcony. The beach is right in front and the restaurant( Duke) was good. Michael.

We stayed at this hotel on the recommendation of my wife's friend. Essentially, all rooms have washer and dryer and a complete kitchen, which was appealing to us since we are bringing our toddler son. When we checked in, we found our first room had extremely dated furniture and old carpet. We complained and were given an upgraded room which had tile floors. Still I found the furniture to be very outdated, old and worn out. The resort was under construction, and two out of the three pools were out of order. There is a restaurant on the premises which is grossly overpriced and with mediocre food. Overall I found the resort to be overpriced an out dated

Grounds were well cared for; it was nice having an adult pool. Staff was friendly and helpful. Having Dukes on the property added to our great experience. Being able to walk to one of the best beaches in Maui was fantastic. The grocery store across the street was handy as well. The only room for improvement would be not having all the wash cloths removed by the cleaning staff; by the third day we had none and they were never replaced. The dryer didn't work properly, we had to re-start it every two minutes at least 5 times; to be fair we never called maintenance. Other than those few minor things our stay was excellent. We had a two room/two bathroom suite which was extremely comfortable and homely; modern decor, well kept, laundry detergent, dish soap, and bathroom amenities were provided. Mahalo.

We spent eight nights and had an amazing time, not one complaint

The condo type room gives you the opportunity to save money by cooking your own meals and avoiding the expensive restaurants. Be aware of the $29 per day resort fee not included in price and the $25 per day roll away bed fee if you book 1 bedroom.

I'd definitely stay here again. The four pools and proximity to the beach were amazing.

Great location. Wish they have more restaurants at the resort.

Stayed Monday thru Friday. Did not have house keeping come to the room one time. Had to call for clean sheets/towels etc. even then they just left them on the counter

They thought of everything when creating this resort. This is by far the best property Ever!!!

This could be an excellent place to stay if the management didn't stint on the amenities. Our unit had only 4 set-ups, so when we ate in for breakfast and lunch, we had to run the dishwasher to have plates and utensils for dinner. It was worse when we had another couple over as guests. The kitchen wares are of poor quality!

Location was good. Close to beach. Staff at the concierge was not that friendly. Duke restaurant food was alright not the best one. Too expensive but not choice Overall it's 3/5. Thanks

Clean comfortable room. Manicured grounds. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Steps away from the beach.

We liked our room very much and the view from our balcony was very relaxing. The staff was often not present at the front desk for much of the early morning and night which was difficult. They also weren't able to accommodate the late checkout we desired forcing us to switch hotels on the last day. I also felt the resort fee ($29 a night) was pretty expensive and unfortunately didn't include use of beach activity equipment.

Our 2 bedroom Condo was clean and updated. Rooms were picked up daily. Room came with washer/dryer & full kitchen. Coffee shop located in hotel & Dukes restaurant by pools was convenient. Only negatives were dryer kept over heating with only 2 or so items in it. Maintenance fixed it once but it kept kicking off each day after. Also, had to buy chairs for beach or pay $10 for each lounge chair daily.

The only negative thing about the experience was the shower. It felt like needles. Was painful when my skin was slightly burned.

Great resort condominiums. The land scape and grounds were very well kept and vibrant. Pools where excellent but some kids if your not fond of little children. Not very big beach calompared to the ones we see on Oahu. View from our Studio room on 9th floor in the Jones tower was amazing. You could see the ocean from your bed and the whales splashing. Would go again.

Great hotel, nice and big Room, don't have facilities but charge like a Four seasons (Usd1000/day) and because of this should offer more!

It was a lot of fun for myself and my 2 kids. One of our best vacations ever.

This is a very nice resort with great amenities. Beautiful pool area with areas for both adults and children. The only weakness is the concierge desk whose main goal is to selll activities thus not very helpful or cordial if just asking for local information. Everything else was superb but did notice a lack of hospitality with these staff members.

Bed very comfortable but poor lighting in the bathroom for putting makeup on.
