“Great family hotel, good location, great staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

We loved our stay at the Maui Coast. As long as you're not expecting the Ritz-Carlton, you will be happy. Nice, spacious and clean rooms (we stayed in a suite, which was perfect for kids who wanted to nap). Staff was the friendliest we've encountered almost anywhere, including stays at larger resorts and luxury hotels. The location was perfect - right across from the beach and within walking distance of numerous restaurants. The only downside was the parking lot view, but I'm sure we could have paid a little more for the other view. Our friends were staying at a small hotel in Wailea and our hotel was definitely better and more convenient.

Room Tip: Suites are great, but ask for non-parking lot if possible. Luckily, none of the rooms were directly...

Aloha Carolyn,

The pleasure was ours in hosting you during your time on Maui!
Our 1 bedroom suite sounded perfect for your needs. The separated bedroom allows for privacy away from the common living room space.

Mahalo for staying with us!

we booked a room with a king bed 7 months before our arrival date. We arrived at the hotel too early so left our stuff at the hotel and went out to see the sites. We arrived back at the hotel around 10pm only to find that king beds were no longer available. We ended up with 2 double beds. Disappointing that we booked 7 months in advance, arrived at the hotel early and didn't get what we booked. The hotel was clean and the rooms were nice and after all, it's Maui!

We booked this property in Kihei because of the TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. Granted, it is not the Fairmont, but the rooms we had were clean and updated. We booked both the regular room and a junior suite for our family. The regular room was adequate, although the bathroom was small and the tub had no grab bar. The suite had more floor space, a wet bar and a larger bathroom.

The staff was very polite and cheerful. The pool was on the small side, but in good condition. We enjoyed it because most people went to the beach across the street. I appreciated the computers that were available at no extra charge so I could check emails. We did have a rental car, but there were plenty of dining options within walking distance. We did use the bicycles that were included with the resort fee, and that was fun. Parking and a daily newspaper were also included.

Room Tip: Request an odd numbered room on a higher floor so you're not looking at the parking lot.

This was our second visit to the Maui Coast.

They added the $17.50 Resort Fee since our last visit. I guess this is progress?!?

Nice hotel in a good South Maui location. Nice updated rooms. Get one on the south (non-parking lot) side........it's quieter. Small but well-lit bathrooms.

The only downside to our visit was spotty housekeeping. Not everything done that should have sometimes.

Friendly front-desk staff.

A good choice in South Maui.

We returned to the Maui Coast from Feb 6 to 15th, not quite a year in between visits. It was just as good as the first time. We requested the same room- a Jr suite - and they had it for us. We did notice an issue with the fridge on our first day and within 5 minutes of our call someone was us to check it, and 10 minutes later we had a new fridge. Again no problems what so ever with the cleanliness of the rooms.

Tiffaney the concierge was away, but Jeff was very good at setting up our tours in her absence. A special call out to Jonas at the front desk, he shuttled us to and from the Luau at the Marriott (highly recommend this one, great food and show). As well as Manny, they both took the time out to just visit with us daily as we stopped by for our pool towels and paper.

And another thank you to Heather the waitress by the pool, she remember us from last time and made sure we got in what we needed during happy hour.

Is anyone is looking to get a tattoo while on holiday? Go to Skin Deep in Lahina and ask for Alex. This place was listed in the Maui 101 Things Magazine, I went last year and he did a wonderful job on my Honu(turtle) and returned this year. Love his work-great with the traditional polynesian(tribal) art, made up exactly what I had requested.

Awesome time to be in Maui the whale watching was unbelivable! Can't wait to go back again next year!

This was our last island of a 4 island-hopping trip and it was wonderful. Each island is different and Maui was a combination of many of the island features. The Maui Coast Hotel was exceptionally clean, convenient and well located. Our room had plenty of room and a very comfortable bed. It was interesting that our room and our friends' were similar but not identical. Our bathroom was quite small and we had a couch, and they had a bigger bathroom and no couch. We were both on the second floor that is really the ground level. Our room was ideal for cards or eating in. Our patio had 2 chairs and a little table so we could sit outside or bring the chairs in and use around the table so we could seat 4. Our room was quiet and the little frig and micro were useful. Like everyone has said, the laundry was free and we never had any difficulty finding it available.
The lobby was spacious and well appointed with a nice gift shop and friendly and helpful staff. I love the open lobbies that we found on our trip.
The location was convenient and we spent a couple of fun mornings at the beach across the road. Towels were provided and the second day I asked for two towels-one to sit on and one to dry with and was quickly given them. Very accommodating. I do wish that they had beach chairs to borrow too, but that's just a wish! The pool and hot tub were nice and the landscaping beautiful.
We had dinner one night at the hotel restaurant and enjoyed Guido and our meal. I think they had a good and reasonably priced breakfast available each morning too, but we ate in our room, enjoying the coffee that was provided. If we return to Maui, we will definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Maui Coast Hotel. The hotel is set back from the main road and is quiet and private. The grounds and pool areas are beautifully landscaped. The rooms are clean and well appointed with in suite coffee maker, microwave and fridge. There is free laundry and wifi. We upgraded to a junior suite and really appreciated the extra space. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. An excellent sandy beach is a short walk from the hotel. The hotel offers freshly laundered towels for use on the beach. There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance or you can use the bicycles available for guests. We were most pleased with our choice of hotel and would wholeheartedly recommend it.
