We were "bounced off" to the villas because the Ritz-Carlton was over-booked for a week-long event. I was "disappointed" at first, but glad that we ended up staying here. We hardly considered it a hotel. Although we didn't get to use the villa to it's whole extent, it definitely felt better than the Ritz in terms of accommodations if you had kids - a kitchen, living room, TV in each bedroom of 2, one more in the living room, two baths plus 1/2, and laundry, if you care to have clean clothes on your way back to the mainland. 2 areas for BBQ and a million-dollar view of the golf course. Plus, since most flights left late at night, they allow you to use their spa which was better than some spas in the country that claim to be high-end. It was in an area where Maui-ans would say - "oh, yes, there". Access to restaurants was not bad - we went to a Chinese restaurant - off the beaten path, 3 times, for the best calamari we have ever had. And we are Asians. Best selling point - quiet, relaxing, exactly what you would expect, but not quiet that far from civilization, if you hunger for it.
