We did some research on the hotels in the Lahaina area and relied on comments from TripAdvisor customers. We selected the Honua Kai Resort and have absolutely enjoyed every aspect of it. The rooms are huge with great views of the ocean. Appliances are modern and the lanai added a separate space to enjoy time together while looking at a breathtaking view. The pools are nice with some neat features for the kids including a slide. We found the location was great with easy access to restuarants, stores, groceries, etc. We ate at Duke's a couple of nights and it was very good.
We used the on-site concierge service (Maui Concierge) and they were unbelievable. We highly recommend Anna and Kimmy, in particular. We had an unfortunate accident while we were there but they went above and beyond to compensate us for something that was not even their fault.
We participated in many activities - zip lining, Haleakala sunrise tour, Ulalena show, snorkel trip to Lanai, Luau, helicopter ride, the Warren & Annebelle magic show, and the van ride to Hana. Our family enjoyed the snorkel trip to Lanai the most. We saw several dolphins and truly enjoyed both the snorkeling and the time on the boat. One caution I would give to all travelers relates to the bike ride down Haleakala. It is very dangerous and should not be attempted unless you are a very experienced rider!!! The magic show was great but you have to be 21 to participate as alcohol is served.
Don't miss an opportunity to eat at Mama's Fish House. Best food and a spectacular location. It's convenient to couple this with a trip to the village of Pa'ia.
A great vacation. Highly recommend the Honua Kai.
