Room and housekeeping services were excellent. When we checked in, we were not given any information about the resort area at all or about shuttle service to areas outside the resort. Very disappointing in that aspect.

Resort was extremely nice. Clean, comfortable, accommodating. Breakfast buffet awesome!!! Highly recommend to all. Wonderful place for couples to connect, activities abound, from paddle boards to snorkel fins, towels at the ready along with poolside drinks.

Unfortunately, these are ONLY Hotel Rooms and do need to be updated (e.g., carpets, shower doors, wood on bathroom vanity). The best part about these rooms is that you have a lot of privacy since you cannot hear anyone next to you -- must be cement walls. Also, the housekeeping staff are amazing and do an excellent job with keeping your room… Read more
Unfortunately, these are ONLY Hotel Rooms and do need to be updated (e.g., carpets, shower doors, wood on bathroom vanity). The best part about these rooms is that you have a lot of privacy since you cannot hear anyone next to you -- must be cement walls. Also, the housekeeping staff are amazing and do an excellent job with keeping your room clean while also accommodating your schedule. Beachfront is also amazing with no shortage of towels for hotel patrons. The worst part is the parking. We had to pay $15 per night while the people showing up to the Luau nightly pay a $5 parking fee and take up the Hotel Parking spaces!! A lot of frustrated people looking for parking spaces every night! Another negative: only 1 item on Restaurant Menu (a salad) for Vegans so we had to go out to eat every night (also, only a small refrigerator and no microwave in room). Read less

We had a nice stay and enjoyed the Luau at night. The staff were friendly and helpful. They have a cute little shop on site. Great plan to do laundry when travelling around the island. Only downside was that the floor to our room was very dirty and definitely had not been cleaned for a while. The rest of the room seemed clean.

Family Outing to this Luau in Kannapali area of Maui. This Luau is family friendly where kids under 3 are free. VIP seating is 30.00 more person, but really not worth it as our table was right in front of the stage. The Show and the entertainers were great, Food was Good but as I commented to the manager, it needs to be somewhat up graded. Free… Read more
Family Outing to this Luau in Kannapali area of Maui. This Luau is family friendly where kids under 3 are free. VIP seating is 30.00 more person, but really not worth it as our table was right in front of the stage. The Show and the entertainers were great, Food was Good but as I commented to the manager, it needs to be somewhat up graded. Free beverages, but the best way to go is to pay the 15.00 for a tiki mug and you will get top shelf liquor. I still feel the FEAST at Leilei is the best a little more pricy but excellent. Read less
