“Going down hill in a hurry!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is the third visit to this hotel in four years. We have always requested ocean view, and Had rooms on the ninth floor on the first two visits. And they were quite satisfactory with an excellent few of the ocean and sunset .But on the last visit we were given rooms on the sixth floor, When I expressed my concern about the view
I was assurred that the view would be equal. We'll nothing could be further from the truth. I returned to the lobby to express my displeasure and was told that that was all that was available. I then asked for the manager and a nice young lady came out to help me and the next day we were moved to another building that had the view I requested and paid for.We traveled from Boston and if push came to shove we would have stayed at another Hotel.

This Hotel was a 5 star is now a 4 and on the way to a three. The breakfast Buffet was always excellant, very pricey, but not this trip. There were no eggs benedict on the buffet but were available of the menu for three dollars, the birds were always a problem but the waitstaff kept them in check but this trip the birds were able to help themselves to sausage and home fries. I love Maui but comming from Boston I will consider other Hotels.

Great service at this Westin..... Make sure you get an ocean view room as its really great at sunsets... As a side bonus, if you get one overlooking to pools, you get a ringside seat for the luau show.. no food, but great view of the show!

No real complaints, but the fridge in the room was a bit cranky, and we couldnt adjust temp very well.

Front desk, concierge and staff were really, really good - helpful, conversational, and friendly. Talked to one worker there who'd been there for nearly 37 years... wow..

Got a package deal, so we had drink coupons as well as continental breakfast coupons. The upsell to the regular buffet was $17.50 per person.. bit stiff.....

We intend to come back...

Room Tip: Lot of running water in pools area - fountains, waterfalls, etc... so if you need to sleep - get a n...

We had a great family vacation at the Westin for the Maui Invitational. Pools and beach were fabulous. We want to extend a special thanks to our server on Thanksgiving evening at the Buffet at Ono, Barbara, she went above and beyond and was a pleasure.

Came for Maui Invitational and paid a bundle (about 2K for 5 nights) for the room. Arranged by Oahu Travel. Got mountainview, room dusty, smells of diesel fuel, dirty table on lanai, small bathroom. One nice feature is adult pool and hot tub at the pool. Cheap, worn dirty furnishings in the room. Breakfast buffet nice but pricey.

Room Tip: Pay for ocean view if you stay here but would advise to go elsewhere. Will not book with Oahu Trave...

My wife and I stayed at the Westin the last week in October while I attended a conference there. The property is beautiful with lush green space, multiple pools, and a broad sandy beach. The rooms are typical, average sized hotel rooms with a tiny balcony. We asked for a King bed but got 2 doubles...one of which became a repository for clothes, hats, and miscellaneous. Not perfect, but acceptable. As others have mentioned, we took advantage of the green initiative and used our vouchers for snacks at the restaurant. Be aware that if you choose this option, maids will not enter the room even to empty the garbage. They might consider garbage removal and a quick bathroom cleaning which doesn't interfere with the "green" approach.

Flamingos, ducks, and swans wade in the pond with waterfalls and huge koi. There is a waterslide and basketball net in the pool. There is also a hidden pool with jets under the waterfall passage to the next pool. Not heated, but fun. The beach had moderately high waves with a strong undertow when we were there so we stuck to the pools. Also, while lounges and shade are provided at the pool, You have to pay over $30 a day for lounges and umbrellas at the beach...kind of chintzy if you ask me.

Whaler's Village is right next door for shopping and restaurants. Happy Hour at Leilani's, $4 margaritas and appetizers...I strongly recommend the fish tacos. The shuttle into Lahaina was free and convenient. It drops you off at Hilo Hatties...one end of Front street, the main drag for galleries, shopping, and dining. Make sure you duck inside Hilo Hatties for your free shell lei.

All in all, a very positive experience at the Westin.

Room Tip: The cheapest rooms face the mountain and the golf course. The views even from there are beautiful.

J ust got home from 5 days at the Westin Maui resort. Our stay was realxing and very enjoyable. First of all the grounds were spectaular and the pools a perfect temp. Lots of loungers available.
I was pleased when it was noticed that I was a platinum memeber and that the front desk tried so very hard to upgrade me but the resort was packed full. They later contacted me and said they could get me an ocean front room for the last 3 days so we took it. The efforts were appreciated. The rooms are on the small side but clean and efficient with a great Heavenly Bed. It's not a new Hotel and I understand they are also renovating now. I am a huge Westin fan as well as a Westin owner and SPG is the best points program by far. The location is perfect as its near everything but still very quiet. We will return

Room Tip: Higher Floors and Ocean view is the way to go!

I'm a SPG Platinum member, so we got an upgrade to an oceanview room, but I have to concur with other reviewers... The rooms are smallish in size.

Facilities:
You can tell this place may have been really hot about 20-30 years ago. It's been refurbished extensively, but there's only so much you can do. The pools are multiple and extensive. The shuttle to Lahaina is very convenient if you don't have a vehicle. The coffee in the room is terrible. My wife loved Bob, the dancing parrot.

Staff:
The staff is very accomodating and helpful. We had a personal concierge, Moni, who was very helpful, even though we didn't use any of his services. He even called me on my cell a week before our trip to introduce himself. He had a "welcome gift" for us and roped us to a "Facilities Tour" which turns out to be a Timeshare Presentation for SPG.

In-Room Experience:
Being a Westin property I would have thought they would have Starbucks or Seattle's Best in the room, but instead it was some Kona Hawaiian Roasted no name brand. Really nasty stuff. Balcony was kind of small and we had cigarette smoke waft in our room from a balcony below us.

Beach:
Very nice... The shoreline further north is littered with bolders which make the wave action dangerous when you are swimming.

Bonus:
This property has a "going green" program. If you skip room service, they give you 5 dollars in food and beverage or 500 SPG points. Very good idea.

Room Tip: Be a Gold/Platinum member. They are very accomodating and ask for an upgrade when you're at the...

Mahalo for sharing your experiences. We regret the room coffee was not to your liking as our visitors often request for local coffee. However, Colonnade Café by the resort’s koi pond gardens serves Starbucks specialty coffees for die-hard fans. Do take advantage of our suites with varied categories on your next visit as these come with larger living areas. We look forward to delighting you with our new upgrades upon your return. Warmest aloha!
