We picked Kihei as the most central location to stay during our "(only) 4 nights on Maui and chose the Maui Coast Hotel through their direct website. During arrival and check-in and later
on at the pool - we appreciated that the hotel kept up to it's advertising promises on the internet.
A very nice beach with wonderful sun-downs is just a couple of minutes walk away.
The only down side: no stores or restaurants in walking distance and the hotel own restaurant
is closed unfortunately. Dinner can be taken at the pool side bar though - as far as we realized
only after we had left already.
The 4:00 am drive from the hotel to Haleakala summit takes apprx 90 minutes and La Haiana is
apprx 40 minutes drive away. Consider apprx 30 minutes by car to or from Kahului airport.
If the Hawaiian Islands wouldn't be so far from Austria - we'd love to travel there more often
and on Maui - we would would have no regrets staying at the Maui Coast Hotel again.
