Stayed at the Ritz-Carlton during the Pro-Am at Kapalua which was wonderful. We were involved with the golf and attended 2 of the functions at the hotel - both of which I would say were very well done. The staff when we checked in were excellent and only too happy to offer helpful advice and make sure everything was fine.... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon. It's a lovely hotel, very smart and clean. The pool area and service by the staff was fantastic. The only downside was its a remote location and the dining options in the hotel are expensive and limited.

My husband and I stayed Nov 30-Dec 6, 2014 (second visit in two years). Loved it! I think it's better to stay at ANY Hawaiian property during off times like this...your experience can be completely different than if you are there at major holidays or during spring break. Explains why reviews can vary so much at the same property. I... More

We stayed at the Ritz for four nights in January, and had an unbelievable time. I read concerns about the wind and rain, and we had no problems whatsoever. It was warm and sunny every day. The facilities were amazing. The resort has everything you could ask for - pools, beach, spa, hiking trails and amazing views. The food was... More

This is the place to say in Maui if you want to be treated like a princess. The hotel is beautiful, the service is flawless and the beach is a lot of fun for amateur boogie boarders looking for a good time. I stayed here for 6 days with my friend and we had an amazing vacation. It has three... More

Stayed at the RCK for 7 nights in December. Went with our 6 year old daughter and stayed at the hotel during the busiest time of the year, between Christmas and New Years. Was a bit concerned prior to arrival given some of the negative views, but we were happy with the stay. The hotel is a full hour from... More

We have stayed at many Ritz-Carlton properties and this one is the most amazing so far. It's a beautiful property. The beach there is nice, the Dragon's Teeth is there (must-see), and you are close to Merriman's (must-eat) and Lahaina is just a 15 minute drive. It's a great location. If you have the opportunity, take a tour of the... More

We had a really good time at the Ritz on Maui. The staff was exceptional, waiting on us hand and foot, including the bell hop who worked hard to find us a Ritz cooler we could borrow and the concierge staff that booked our trips and then had to change them around last minute. The hotel is not one of... More

We stayed one night here for the Pro-AM Golf tournament. We were suppose to stay 6 nights but after realizing the Montage was right next door we decided to check it out. This Ritz needs a facelift. We had a true ocean view room but to get there, we had to walk a 1/2 mile. We were at the very... More
