This is a really nice property, set on 60 acres with massive ocean views. The grounds are gorgeous with tons of palm trees and plants, the pool is top notch with plenty of room and several cascading water falls. The service is also superb, we were upgraded through our AMEX platinum card to a deluxe room which was clean and nicely updated. The work out room has awesome ocean views, although the equipment could use updating. It does appear that they are slowly updating everything here so be patient. On a side note, I have to laugh at several of the negative posts, one of which was complaining that the walk down to the beach is treacherous. Seriously, the walk is about 200 yards down a gentle 8-foot wide concrete path, if you are that scared, taken the shuttle, lol. Also, another moron was complaining about the weather, really? The last time I checked, the Ritz Carleton does not control the weather on Maui, get a clue, do your home work people. It's amazing how many travel snobs there are that will never be pleased no matter what so take any negative reviews with a grain of salt!
