just came back from Maui, there's no bad time to go there -- the weather is always fantastic!
ok, the hotel -- we stayed in a studio on a sixth floor with an ocean view (last January we were looking at the mountain, ain't the same, trust me). I kept the balcony door open and would wake up to the trashing of the ocean at high tide; which was marvelous -- would make coffee and have it at the balcony watching the sun rise, I miss it already!
We had a full service -- cleaning, fresh sheets and towels etc. We had a full kitchen, with all the pots etc., no complaints. The bathroom is spacious, modern, lovely and we never had a problem with hot water. There's also a barbecue downstairs and you can snorkel or surf right there at the wall.
It's been really lovely, what can I say -- can't beat that price and the fact that I could spot whales from the balcony; I mean really, what else do you want for $200 a night?
Well, maybe a free parking which is not ($8 per day), pool tables or ping pong or something like that when the swimming pool or the hot tub is not an option. And the bed was on the soft side -- sheets were Egyptian cotton, fantastic. Radios on each night table, TV, dinning table inside and nice table to dine on the balcony. I would go there anytime but the trip is looooooooooooong and the jet lag hurts. Btw, the place was full of couples well over 50.
