We stayed here in early Feb. with our 5 and 7 year old kids. We booked a 1 bedroom suite as part of the stay 4 nights, get the 5th night free package. The room was larger than expected and very very clean. We were upgraded by very friendly front desk staff to the 4th floor which gave us a partial ocean view. The room had a mini fridge, microwave, counter with sink.
The pool area was small but perfect for our kids to swim in (3.5 feet deep on the edge, 5 ft in the middle). There was a small toddler pool, and two working hot tubs. There's a bar and restaurant right beside the pool that had a pretty good menu (great kids menu too) with healthy choices and decent prices for Maui. Happy hour was from 3-6pm and drinks were $3 for domestic beer, and $5-6 for fancy drinks. Thank you to Savanna for fantastic service - she always came by our lounge chairs to make sure we were taken care of.
We ate at the Ami Ami restaurant on site which was very good but a little pricey. If you are vegetarian, you must try the kale and quinoa wrap - absolutely delicious! There are loads of other restaurants nearby within walking distance.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk to Kameolli Beach 1 which is a very nice beach. Unlike in Kaanapali, Kihei has no beach path to walk or run on, but I ran to Wailea about 3km on the sidewalk and was able to find the beach path that goes along all the big hotels such as the Grand Wailea and the Fairmont. If you want details on how to get to this path, just email me. It's a beautiful run or walk - maybe 6-7 miles in total.
The biggest drawback to the hotel was that wifi did not work at all in our room. We were credited the $18 resort fee because of this. There were cruiser bicycles to use but no helmets if that matters to you. There's a little gift shop in the lobby which sells snacks and drinks, along with those Hawaii souvenirs at a decent price.
I would come back to this hotel for the friendly service, clean large rooms, nice pool area with restaurant and proximity to Wailea.
