We own a timeshare at this property but for the last few years we'd been going to Kauai and the Big Island so we hadn't seen it for 3 years. We made the mistake of exchanging to the Valley Isle property for this trip and that was a big mistake. We wanted a full kitchen and in room washer and dryer but our unit was terrible. We are able to transfer to this place for 4 nights and the Ka'anapali Shores for 2 nights (also nice).
The room updates (not all rooms have been updated yet) are really nice. The materials are high quality and the bedding and mattresses are great. There's plenty of space in the one bedroom for the 3 of us (wife and 12 year old daughter). The one bedrooms still don't have a full kitchen but with the new hot plate in addition to the microwave and refrigerator you can easily do breakfast and the occasional lunch and dinner with no problems.
The pool is much bigger and better than the typical timeshare property. The on site restaurants are good but not exceptional so for dinner we almost always go off property.
They've added some activities since we were here last and while most are simple there's a wide variety to choose from. For example they've always had pool scuba classes but they also added a quick snuba demo that you don't even have to sign up for. They setup the equipment in the pool and you can just swim up and give it a try.
I really like that parking is covered and free and being able to walk to a grocery store is a plus.
The beach is not spectacular but you are very close to the water. Swimming is difficult because there's a lot of rock. Snorkeling can be okay but it seems like the water is cloudier here than in some other locations.
The staff has always been friendly but they seemed even more so this time with an added level of professionalism you don't always get in Hawaii.
Overall we were pleased with the updates and I can't see exchanging our timeshare to any other Maui locations in the future.
