This is a beautiful resort with lots to do or nothing at all. We stayed 7 nights at the Ritz and the staff were very attentive and informative. The only downfall of the resort is the location. It seemed to have rain and wind all the time. I know there is nothing the Ritz can do about the weather but... More

Great experience for our honeymoon. Exceptional service, great rooms, definitely top notch service. I would recommend booking the breakfast when staying at this hotel. This hotel has great views of the beach and surrounding area. Only draw back is the strong wind and no real beach access compared to neighboring hotels.

The rooms at this resort are in the small side. Stayed in a mountain view room. Disappointed at square footage, but the food more than made up for it. Plus, how much time do you spend in your room?? The beach is nice enough (not the clear blue I'd expected) and offers all amenities imaginable. Sunday brunch is NOT to... More

Last time I stayed at the Grand Wailea in Wailea. Friends told us it the wrong side of the island and isolated. Well, depends what your looking for. This time I didn't arrive with small children but older teens so I didn't need to be near everything. I even went for lunch at the four seasons to,re evaluate my decision.... More

We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua in January 2014 and had a great time. All of the staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. It is going to be difficult to find a "bad" room. The layout of the hotel afford a great view to a majority of the rooms. The father down the hallway you go, the closer... More

We just got back staying at the Ritz for spring break with our two teens. Two thumbs up even from the teens. The hotel is luxurious but not pretentious. We had a spacious room facing the golf course with ocean views. The beds were super comfortable, and sleeping the the sounds of the ocean was heavenly. The rooms were quiet... More

This is a fantastic hotel located in Kapalua. We recently vacationed in Maui and stayed in three different hotels (Hyatt, Marriott and Ritz). The Ritz was by far the best hotel in terms of quality, service, food, cleanliness and professionalism. It is more private and secluded than the other two as well. The service is top notch, you'll be treated... More

I stayed here for my birthday in an ocean view room. I have stayed at many other R-C properties, and this one had all the service and charm I expect. The room (2 Queens) was very large, and I liked the huge bathroom with a separate toilet/WC. There was turn-down service every evening. WiFi was good. I liked the iPod/Phone... More

This resort is an oasis. We had an ocean front room with tranquil, glorious ocean views. The furnishings and linens were lovely. There is a complimentary resort shuttle that can take you to neighboring beaches in 5 minutes that are more protected from the wind. The resort is both private and spacious which makes one feel as if you are... More
