We stayed at the ritz kapalua for 5 nights just post the thanks giving weekend. The hotel is definitely 5 star but could do a lot better to live upto the ritz brand. Our check in was smooth but we felt out of place. Being a ritz member and having booked directly on the ritz website, they should have known... More

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days and were not disappointed. The staff, as usual, is extremely personalble and always say hello with a smile. The're very accomodating and they made our stay here very comfortable and relaxing. The rooms are well appointed, clean, and turn-down service nightly is a nice touch. The pool area is wide open...

First the good: - the location was nice, nested in couple of golf courses, rolling hills, and not far from beach - golf cart taking you between the hotel swimming pool and beach - generous offerings of beach towels - most staffs...

Myself and two friends traveled to Maui after our University 'finals' and, as a celebratory treat, we decided to book into the Ritz for three nights. It was everything we expected/hoped for and more. We arrived very late at night due to our flight being delayed by 7 hours and had to taxi to the hotel which is a fair... More

My husband and I could not have asked for a more beautiful and accommodating hotel for our vacation. We were upgraded to a suite, and upon seeing the beautiful room and the ocean view balconies, we were in love. The staff was exceptional! We want to give a special shout-out to the cleaning staff, as every detail was attended to.... More
