Stayed here for 5 nights last week in a one bedroom ocean view with a family of 5(3 kids under 13). Spacious and well equipped room particularly if you want to cook in. The free shuttle to nearby located is worth checking out early so you know what is available. Pool and slide great for kids and surf safe enough... More

The staff at this Westin property were very accommodating and provided full service with a smile. We came here in a packaged deal through an airlines, and were initially hesitant as we knew this was associated with timeshare properties. In recent experiences, the staff would push to listen and sit in one of these timeshare sales meetings; however, this was... More

My parents bought a condo here back in 2002 before it was eevn built. We have been coming to this hotel once a year ever since. Right out front it by far the best snorkeling on the whole island. I have seen: Turtles, octopuses, eels, lobsters, crabs, tons of fish and when the whales are there you can hear them... More

We have been to this resort several times with the family and it is by far the Best Location! You have the beach, parasailing, surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, the catamaran, amongst other things at the ready! Then you have wave running, diving, kayaking trips, snorkeling trips, etc. a short distance away. Plenty of things to keep the kids busy! And let's... More

My wife and I were very impressed with this resort. The resort has two sections, the original Ocean Resort Villas and the newer Ocean Resort Villas North. They both appear new and look the same other than they face the water at different angles. We had a studio villa and for the two of us it was more than enough... More

It is located right on the beach with beautiful views. The staff treat you like you are someone special. The rooms are modern suites, very well maintained. It had an excellent exercise facility, several... More

After reading mixed reviews about this facility, we took a chance, and were delighted. Although we were initially given a room adjacent to a noisy elevator shaft, we returned to the front desk and where in moments they apologized and upgraded us without our even requesting it. The room was large and clean and as up to date as necessary.... More

We got a fabulous package offer through the Westin group for a 5 night stay with car rental. Rooms have fully equipped kitchen and very clean. The beach in front of the resort is among the best in Maui. Grounds are very impressive with outside barbecues for grilling your own food. If the Westin group was to offer another deal... More

Nice and peaceful, attentive wait and desk staff. However, the rest of the staff could be friendlier by at least saying Hello or Aloha. Most act as if you are invisible. The information we received was not accurate so make sure to double check other resources. For example, we love champagne brunch and were told that there is none available... More

As Starwood Preferred guests (my hubbie is SPG/Platinum /business traveler) we received good service from the staff. Our 'suite' was lovely in that it had an ocean front window in the living room and nice ocean views from the bedroom. The bad news is that the North tower is above the shopping mall where they pick up garbage every morning... More
