The flight to Maui in coach is a long journey, punctuated by screaming children on the flight and novice travelers in the aisles and terminals. The drive to Lahaina from the airport is lengthy too if you catch traffic. That said, once you walk into the beautiful Westin lobby most, if not all, of your headaches wash away with the... More

We stayed at the Westin for five nights in an one-bedroom ocean view room in the South Villa. The service was great, and the facilities including the pool was perfect for the baby. Overall, we had a wonderful stay with our infant, and we would stay here again. Room - very spacious, full kitchen and washer/dryer are very ideal for... More

We stayed here for the 2 days prior to our conference starting at the Ritz Carlton. We booked on Hotwire and it was wonderful. When we arrived we were upgraded to a garden view room. The room was clean and large and the grounds are very nice. We only stayed here as we couldn't get into the ritz prior to... More

We spent a beautiful week in a one bedroom in the South Villas. we have been coming to this property for the past 8 years and I can honestly say that it still rates " Excellent " in my opinion. The front desk was especially courtious upon check-in as well as the two other times I required their service. The... More

We stayed here because of a family wedding which took place here. If you like smaller resorts this is not the place for you. Just to walk from our Villa to reception took over 15 minutes through a labyrinth of halls and several elevator banks. That said, our ocean view villa was spacious and well appointed with a lanai.

We booked the Westin Villas through Hotwire as the first stop of babymoon. We could not have been more satisfied with the property and staff. We had reserved an island view room, which they were not able to upgrade, but the room we received still had a brilliant view. We were overlooking several pools and directly in front of us... More

This has been by far the most discouraging hotel we have stayed at during our 16 day honeymoon in Hawaii. We come from NJ and vacation frequently to Key West, FL and stay at The Westin over there and love it. We told our travel agent to book us here in Maui cause we wanted to be close to front... More

I LOVED this hotel. Our room was great and it contained everything you would need for a long term stay, including an equipped kitchen. The shuttle bus is incredibly convenient and the drivers are knowledgable and give information about each of the stops. Please listen when they are telling you where and when to be picked up, too many people... More

Yes, basically timeshare, which does not appeal to everyone and equally, I guess, not inexpensive, but these Ocean Villas make up a most special place situated on the Nolrthern part of the beautiful Ka'anapali Beach. The rooms/suites are beautifully furnished with kitchens and washer/dryers. The views overlook the ocean or the beautiful pools and grounds. There are pools for the... More

We got a screaming deal to come for 5 days, car included, to check out this beautiful property. Set your minds at ease - the timeshare sell here is soft, and worth the time. Lahaina is great - laid back beach town, nothing upscale about it. Very relaxing. We'll be back to explore this property again.
