It was the first trip to Maui for my wife, our 14 yr old daughter and I. We booked an ocean-view room for six nights at the Lahaina Shores beach resort. Maui was great, the resort was great, All the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was cleaned daily. We loved the beach, our meals and margarita's at Bettie's Cafe, the people at the nearby convenience store, the walks in near by Lahaina downtown,the snorkinling and snuba activities that took off from nearby harbor. the Old Lahaina Luau was within minutes (driving) from the resort. The one little problem we had was the beach gate lock was a little hard to unlock some times.
