“Two thumps way up!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Maui Coast Hotel for a week in the second week of November and had a great experience staying there. All of the staff are very friendly and went out of their way to make sure your requests were met, with a smile on their faces the entire time. The pool area feels like a tropical oasis and they have a different live band that plays every evening from 6-9pm. Happy hour drinks from 3-6pm (try the tropical breeze, it's yummy!) The hotel is situated in a great part of Kihei! Lots of great restaurants within walking distance and the beach is right across the street. Like a 2 minute walk from our room to the beach! We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite on the 7th floor, over looking the ocean and it was amazing. The room was large, very clean and comfortable.

I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. Our experience staying at the Coast was exceptional. We have done a lot of traveling and have stayed in many different classes of hotel. This one was great! Thank you Maui Coast!

We stayed at Maui Coast for 6 nights in late Oct & didnt want to leave. We had a 1 bedroom suite (seperate bedroom & living area) on the 4th floor. Both rooms were extremely spacious & the king bed was very comfortable. We liked the fact that the bedroom had a ceiling fan as well as air-con so you can have the choice.
We did find that the air-con in the living area not as cooling as the one in the bedroom, but it wasnt an issue.
The bathroom was huge & very well appointed - they even provide cotton wool balls!
On check-in we found that 1 lamp was not working which we reported to the front desk, they initially replaced the globe but it kept shorting out so it was replaced the next day.
I read some reviews that the pool is small but we found the pool to be a good size. Perhaps in high season it may get crowded. There were 2 spa's as well, though I found the big spa to be far too hot.
One thing that really annoys me at hotels is people reserving lounges at the pool & the Maui Coast was no exception. I would see people putting their towels down early in the morning & not returning for several hours & on some occassions half a day. Often we went to the pool after breakfast & all the lounges were taken with barely any people actually occupying them. I find this behaviour very selfish!
The happy hour at the pool bar was very good - it is actually a happy 3 hours! Drinks for $3 - $4 - my fave was tropical breeze. We ate at the pool bar for 1 dinner & it was ok with reasonable prices. Each night they had a different musician playing & it was nice to listen to music while having a drink.
The staff at reception were always friendly & helpful. We were there during the tsunami scare & the hotel kept guests advised of the situation, luckily it ended up being a scare only.
The hotel is a good location & there are many places to eat & shop within walking distance.
There is a resort fee of $17.50 per night but we knew about this in advance, so it wasnt an issue. The fee covered parking, use of bikes, in-room safe, access to shuttle, 2- bottled water each day etc.
I would highly recommend a car in Maui so that you can get out & explore.
We booked 2 trips through the expedia desk - Road to Hana & a snorkelling trip to Molokini Crater with the Pacific Whale Foundation. The snorkelling trip was amazing - possibly the best I have ever experienced - lots of fish, sea turtles & spinner dolphins. The Road to Hana was good however the tour guide never stopped speaking the entire tour & had a fatuation with bathrooms....next time we would drive it ourselves - we just didnt know what to expect but in hindsight could have done it quite easily.
It was handy having a fridge in the room. We stocked up on cereal & milk, snacks & drinks at Foodlands. If you provide a 10 digit phone number, you can take advantage of the member prices.
We had a great meal at Oceans Beach Bar & Grill (about a 5 min drive away)- we went on a Tuesday & it was Taco Tuesday - $3.00 tacos & $2.50 Corona's,!! The taco's were yummo! We also shared fajita's which were delish. We tried the Thai at the small mall near the hotel (think it was called Maui Thai) & it was pretty average. The pad thai was nice, but the massaman curry was average to say the least.
There is a nice paved walk in Wailea along the cliff tops past exclusive houses & resorts. The views are fantastic & we could see many sea turtles from the cliffs.
We enjoyed Maui so much that we didnt want to go to Honolulu but couldnt cancel because of the high cancellation fees we would have incurred.
We are already planning a return trip to Maui next year & would certainly stay at the Maui Coast again without hesitation. We obtained a fantastic rate on expedia several months in advance, so hopefully we can get a good deal again for the 1 bedroom suite, if not perhaps we would try a condo.

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of our latest trip to Maui. It was a good deal, booked on Expedia. Really large rooms. Lots of extras like free water in the room, q-tips, cotton balls, refrigerator, etc. Easy check-in and check-out. The AC was a little loud, but overall A plus property. We met locals in Maui who love the happy hour at the Maui Coast hotel. One of the valets at the Grand Wailea spoke of it fondly. unfortunately, we did't stay long enough to check it out.

Room Tip: All seem good.

We found this property to be clean and comfortable. the staff was very friendly. They do have a daily resort fee, but that covers bikes and many other items. The daily music by the pool each evening was a great finishing touch to the day.

My boyfriend & I stayed at the Maui Coast Resort last March for 2 weeks. It was a wonderful experience. We were upgraded to a suite overlooking the ocean. We are planing to return to Maui this March & hope to stay at the Maui Coast once again. We loved the service, the people & it's proximity to the beach & the downtown area.

My husband and I stayed at the Maui Coast Hotel for 3 nights in October 2012 for our honeymoon.

At check in we were given a free upgrade and a complimentary bottle of champagne, which was a lovely touch. Our room was a juniour suite and it was very spacious. The mattres was the most comfortable matress I have ever slept on! This hotel provides excellent shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The products supplied were very good! They even give you mouth wash and ear buds. This hotel also provides you with free bottled water each day, which was lovely.

This hotel is in a good location. The only downside to this hotel is there is no view of the ocean. All of the rooms overlook the carpark.The hotel is also close to heaps of restaurants and shops. It has a fantastic pool bar and restaurant that are both reasonably priced. Happy hour drinks were fantastic!

We stayed at this hotel while the Tsunami warning was issued for Hawaii. The staff were fantastic in answering all of our questions and keeping us fully informed as to the evactuation procedure, should that be necessary (and it wasn't).

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Maui Coast Hotel and we will definately go back!

Room Tip: Request a juniour suite, they are very spacious!

This is a long overdue review. My boyfriend and I came last year through a package from Orbitz. I looked through all the TripAdvisor reviews and I'm glad I decided on Maui Coast, The price was amazing and the room was very comfortable and clean. Our room faced a parking lot, but we didn't care since we were out all day and had the blinds closed at night to sleep. It was not noisy at all when were were there. The location is great because you're centrally located. Driving towards the north and south end felt pretty equidistant to us. We were able to walk to the beach across the street, restaurants and the ABC store down the street. I only dipped in the pool one night (I mean, the ocean is literally across the street), and it was nice to have a few drinks pool side under the stars.
