Thank you very much for your feed back and for sharing your experiences with us. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed our location and hopefully you got to experience a lot on Maui. We hope to see you again.

4 out of 5
This property isn’t really a ‘resort’ in the popular interpretation. It’s quaint, a bit quirky but authentic and directly across the road from breaking ocean waves, outrigger canoe outings, snorkeling or just a morning dip. Excellent location to launch other Maui adventures from too.

We liked the availability of checking out beach chairs and umbrellas. We extremely disliked the microwaved breakfast; it was not disclosed when booking. They never indicated the food would all be cooked in a microwave. We also disliked the conditions of the property itself. Everything was old and dilapidated; the rooms themselves were renovated but the furnishings were old. The rooms showcased online were not the basic rooms available. That is false advertisement. The rooms showcased were from the single penthouse in the property.

Aloha and Thank you for sharing your experiences. We apologize if we failed to meet your expectations. However, just want to clarify that we have a commercial conventional oven, waffle maker and a microwave. So not all but one item is microwaved. It is advertised online as "Hot Breakfast" like every other hotel out there that offers free complimentary breakfast. We are still in the process of updating our rooms. We are under new management, so slowly but surely things are getting done which we are excited about. We will definitely look into the online websites and correct whatever issues we may find. Thank you for your time and for sharing. We hope you may give us a chance in the near future.

The property was very nice. I actually felt like the staff could have been warmer but it may just be on geographics. The staff smiled but that was pretty much it...I would definitely stay again.

Last Night

Pros: Nice size room with all resort amenities including pool, hot tub and beach across the street. Morning breakfast was good as was the courtesy basket.
Cons: Pool was small and dirty.
Location: Right on main route and beach was across the road.
Great place on Maui. Loved the place and saw a great sunset from out private patio overlooking the ocean.
