“My Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I always love to visit spots that are surrounded by mountain and rivers. I have explored many such places and among them my favorite is Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. Beautiful things surrounding the exterior of the building and wonderful ambiance provided inside the resort, was all amazing. Rooms are very spacious and clean. The bathroom facilities clean and well stocked with things I needed. All the staff members are exceptional and great at their services. Highly recommended!!!

My son and I recently returned from a weeks vacation during spring break in Maui. We stayed at the Lahaina Beach Resorts that was booked for us by Tommy from Blue Hawaii vacation resorts. We had an amazing time. The employees at the Lahaina Shores Resort were SO nice and so very accomodating. It was one of the best places that I have ever stayed and my son had the best time. My overall experience here is a 10++ and I will definitley stay here again!

We stayed here this past winter for a week in January and one in February. The hotel is right on the beach front and looks out to Molokini (so unfortunately no views of the sun setting into the water). But you fall asleep listening to the sound of the surf breaking on the shore a little way from your lanai.

This is not a five star hotel, but I don't really want to stay in one. All the "high" end hotels were a car drive away from the downtown and the harbor. This hotel was clean and comfortable with all the amenities we needed (even a washer and drier one floor up). The staff was friendly and helpful. We could walk everywhere and we did, from the banyan tree market to boating adventures to shopping. We could enjoy a meal and a couple of drinks and never have to worry about getting in a car.

This time of the year we saw lot and lots of whales. The females come to that region to give birth and to breed and it's beyond amazing. Be aware that while the swimming off the hotel isn't very good (a lot of rocks), you can drive down the road, headed south, and there are all sorts of places to pull off and swim and snorkel. Some have toilets, some not,. But all looked to be free.

I recommend this hotel as great vales for your dollar and wonderful access to the things you want to do.

Room Tip: Stay on the ocean side - at leat one or two floors up

We stayed at the Lahaina Shores hotel in March of 2013... we picked this hotel because of its location, you are minutes away by foot to all Lahaina has to offer which was what we were looking for. The hotel is older, but we had one of the Premier Ocean Front suites which was nice. The pictures on line led us to believe that the room would be larger, but it was very clean, and in very good condition. The full kitchen was definitely a bonus! The pool is very small and because of this was often full of kids, which made it not as much fun for my boyfriend and I. It does have a large grassy area with lawn chairs to enjoy. When we originally looked into this hotel, we called the hotel directly and were given one price, we then phoned Tommy at Blue Hawaii and saved a $1,000 on our booking!

We enjoyed our stay at the oceanfront condos in Lahaina Shores Beach Resort in Maui. We stayed there 2 different times. The condos are simple/basic, but very clean with daily maid service. The washer and dryer was also very convenient. The ocean views were wonderful. It is within walking distance for all the shops and restaurants in Lahaina, which made it very convenient as well.

Room Tip: Be sure to get an oceanfront condo.

Be aware that these units are individually owned and each unit is different. All units managed by Lahaina Shores resort. We stayed in 509.

Review of Unit 509-
It was wonderful! Premier Oceanfront 1 BR studio- tastefully decorated, comfortable King bed, modern amenities (i.e. stainless steel; marble counters), giant sliding glass door, wonderful balcony with amazing views- we spent many hours there. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking. A/C worked great. Nice TV w/cable, dvd player but we didn't even turn on the TV most days. When we booked, Premier units also included free wi-fi, free parking (in the garage next door). Beautiful views of the beach, ocean and Lanai. The unit itself is extremely sound proof. I never heard other guests, housekeepers or outside noise when the slidingdoor was closed.

Review of the Resort/Property-
Our first impression of this property immediately made us forget our exhausting 15 hour flight. We were greeted with the ocean breeze in a large open air lobby with unobstructed views of the lawn, beach, pool, water. Daily housekeeping service was provided. There is a pool and a hot tub. Beach towels are provided. The grounds are immaculate and bordered with beautiful blooming flowers. Plenty of chairs for use on the lawn (bring your own chair or grab a cheap one if you want to sit on the beach); a few dining tables around the pool; a grill for communal use. The beach is small but not crowded and although a bit rocky w/coral- it's nice for getting wet and even some snorkeling if the tide is right. Coin operated laundry- $2.50 per load I think; the dryer was slow so plan accordingly (the front desk has quarters and detergent for sale). Recycle bins are located by the washer/dryer. There is a concierge on site. If you book a Premier unit, you are given a complimentary LS beach bag- nice touch.

It was very convenient to restaurants, bars, shopping, the marina. 5-20 minute walk depending on where we were going 'downtown' area of Lahaina- depending on where you were going. There is a private gate to walk directly to the 505 shops for restaurants and the General Store (which has all the basics). From the balcony, we could hear the Feast at Lele Luau on most nights but it ends around 9pm.

My only suggestion for improvement to 509: have more hooks or bars in the bathroom to hang wet towels or bathing suits. They are an 'eco' property- they say that if you hang a towel, it means you will re-use it, but there is only the one towel bar. The location of the recycle bins should also be posted in each room- I had to ask where they were- just trying to do our part, as we had beer bottles, wine bottles, milk jugs, Coke cans, etc.

After staying on Maui for 9 days and visiting some other areas, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Unlike many large resorts, we were so close to the water that we watched whales from our balcony! I can't wait to return to Lahaina Shores & Unit 509!

Room Tip: Spend a little more for ocean view! Unit 509 was great! Higher floors have less 'kids in the poo...

I stayed at Lahaina Shores with my husband and our young son, at it was a lovely and quiet place to stay in Lahaina.

We had a room facing the ocean, which was lovely and the kitchenette in the room was super when traveling with a toddler, so we could prepare food for him whenever needed.

It was really nice falling asleep in the evening to the sound of the ocean, and to eat breakfast in the morning on the balcony.

the room itself was nice and clean - nothing fancy but in a good condition. The location was really good - close to Front street but still removed from the hustle and bustle.

We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Lahaina.
