I just returned this morning from our visit to the newest Montage and I can't say enough wonderful things about the people and the property itself. Everyone was so kind and helpful and you would never know most were new hires for the opening a month ago. Helpful, friendly, happy- everything you want in a staff! The resort itself is beautiful with amazing views of the Pacific and island of Molokai. While the beach is Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (on the big island/a personal favorite) is bigger and less crowded the beach is beautiful with great snorkeling just off the shore (we swam with sea turtles). The pools are amazing for both adults and kids, and the chairs at the pool are oversized and super comfortable. There are so many things to do around the hotel- golf at the Plantation course was so wonderful, cliff jumping, hiking, water activities, tennis and so much more we didn't even have time to do! The rooms are enormous with even bigger patios and full kitchens. There is a market inside the hotel for basics and a bigger one just up the road a bit. My only complaint about the rooms is I would love to see a little more Hawaii in them- a touch here and there would do wonders. But, I really don't have a complaint about this hotel- it was amazing and bound to become the place to stay on Maui both for couples and families!
