There were two couples that stayed at the inn. Both of our accommodations were very good. Our rooms were very spacious and well appointed. They have mini kitchens with coffee makers. Some of the rooms have ocean front views. Additionally not all the rooms have been renovated. The prices are much lower than comparable rooms in the big hotels.

Mama's was recommended prior to our trip and just because we were driving by we decided to stop for lunch. We didn't have reservations but they were able to seat us fairly quickly. The food was great and the view of the ocean was worth a million bucks. We spent a lot of time after lunch taking pictures.

We've eaten at MFH in the past and enjoyed it. However, this time they said they could not accommodate our family of 10 (grandparents, daughters, sons, and grandkids), even though they have in the past, as they now restrict the number to 8 people. They were inflexible and when I tried to split the reservation into two parties, they said... More

The staff was very polite, attentive and professional. We loved the food. We are definitely going back to take our kids. The view is amazing. There is a peaceful ambiance to the place. It was a positive experience for us dinning at Mama's Fish House. For desert we had the coconut cake. It was excellent. My husband does not like... More

I just stayed three nights in the Obanu (sp?) two bedroom/one bath cottage. There were 4 of us (adults). While one bathroom for four people was a challenge it was ok. We loved our stay. The cottage and surrounding area is immaculately clean! There is a king and queen bed and we had someone sleeping on the sleeper sofa so... More

If you want to stay in a place that is reminiscent of old Hawaii, this is it. The big bonus is being able to walk over to what could be the best restaurant in Hawaii, Mama's Fish House. We loved our room, Malolo, which had a beautiful lanai overlooking Baldwin Beach. It was an idyllic stay...the rooms were clean and... More

We loved staying here. The atmosphere of this location was so serene. We stayed in the Lehi cottage. All the beach amenities you could want were included such as boogie boards, noodles, chairs etc. The proximity to Baldwin Beach was a definite bonus. This was a great spot for exploring Kula/upcountry, Haleakala, and Hana. What a terrific location! The kitchenette... More

We had a reservation at the restaurant in keeping with our long-standing tradition for visits to Maui and as a belated anniversary celebration. The down side of the always exceptional experiences at Mama's Fish House has been the drive back to Kaanapali. This time we decided to book an overnight stay at The Inn at Mama's Fish House so we...

If you want wonderful accomodations and a top flight restaurant the this is the place. We were in the Opah suite which was very spacious, large bathroom facility, wood floors and blossoms every day on towels, pillows etc. Nice tropical touch.
