“Flawless views, very relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We had a wonderful stay in Noelani #309. We had a group of 5 people and the condo was the only way to go. Hotel rooms would have cost 3x as much. The photos and views on the condo web site are not touched up. The views are simply magnificent. The location is only an easy 10-15 minute drive from Lahaina. My favorite part about the location was taking naps! The sound of the trade winds and waves crashing the shoreline were hypnotic. I wish I would have recorded the sound. Heavenly. We had a room facing the ocean, while the other 2 bedrooms (on separate floors) faced the road. This was a little problematic for my parents. They are used to country living and complete quiet. They didn’t sleep quite as well due to the street noise. Nothing obnoxious – but annoying at times. There are no windows on the rooms facing the street – just louvered blinds. The pool and hot tub area are very clean and seemingly used very little. We had both to ourselves every time we went to the pool area. No obnoxious “chair saving” like at some resorts. The snorkel gear, cooler, beach chairs and umbrellas in the unit were an added plus. We met a number of people who had been coming to the resort year after year. Front desk staff is very friendly and accommodating. Overall, wonderful views, good pool area and economical. I would definitely stay here again. Make sure you check out the sea turtles on the rocks! They were there every day. Sometimes they would bask on the rocks located just down the trail (away from the pool area) that runs in front of the house next door.

Room Tip: Highly recommend #309 - 3 bdrm unit

We have been coming to the Noelani for over 20 years and our experiences just keep getting better. We typically stay in unit 208 and our view is better than AWESOME! It is street level yet on the 2nd floor! Our lanai (as are all the units at the Noelani) is oceanfront!
I can't say enough good things about Donna (the resort manager) and Bruce (the concierge). Both are always so very helpful to us in planning our annual stays and our activities! If you are considering Maui,,,,, NOELANI is an awesome place to stay. The roar of the ocean, the mai tai parties the lei making classes all combine to make it a memorable vacation! The sea turtles sunning next to the Noelani are amazing. They are typically lounging on their rocks every afternoon.

Room Tip: We typically stay in room #208 for the unobstructed view and street level entry.

This is our second stay at Noelani. We stayed in 309 which appears to be recently updated. The kitchen was really nice and well equipped. The whole resort has everything you need. Bruce, the concierge, is invaluable. Don't book tours or make too many plans before talking with Bruce!

I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Maui!

Noelani is a delightful experience. It starts with the excellent and fun concierge Bruce, who provides extensive info on fun things to do on the island. He has experienced them himself, and can make suggestions about quality and cost-effectiveness of many fabulous activities on the island. The oceanfront condos are delightful -- right next to the ocean, which can lull you to sleep. You can watch the turtles which come to the rocks to feed. Great views of the whales in the bay towards Molokai Island, which also provides a delightful view -- you can watch the clouds and ocean. The staff is pleasant and helpful. A great experience!

Room Tip: I have stayed in various rooms and found them all delightful -- all have ocean views.

Gorgeous view!! We stayed in room 102 with our unit right infront of the ocean! Everyone was very nice and helpful. Bruce knew everything you need to know about the island weather etc. The room was clean and there is free wifi and foxtel which was nice. Over all a really nice stay that is quite close to everything. Would stay here again :)

Its not much when you first drive up but boy its just wonderful inside and when you see the view! they do not have a/c but if you open up the windows and turn on the fans you dont need it. the units are clean, relaxing. the view is priceless! in the master room we kept the door open and let the sound of the waves put us to sleep. the sea turtles come up to land and swim around the tide pool, that is fun to explore. the little beach right next door is great for kids and searching for seashells. we watched whales from the balcony, and from the pool. The staff is wonderful and helpful. We will be back soon!

This was our first trip to Maui and we chose Noelani as a referral from a family member who stayed there last year. We weren't disappointed as this resort was quiet with friendly staff and not over crowded. We had to switch rooms 3 times in order to stay the nine nights of our vacation. This turned out to be a blessing more than a hassel because we got to try out a one bedroom, a studio and an executive suite. The best unit we stayed in was #104. It faced the ocean and had very little foot traffic from the resort unlike the other two units. All 3 units were clean, well stocked with all the household items one would need and had modern decor (especially the executive suite). A couple of suggestions for improvements that would truly make this a 5 rating. 1) Mai Tai night is supposed to be for one hour. Unfortunately the Mai Tai's ran out after 30 minutes. Not sure if management was just being cheap or under estimated the numbers, however, management should make sure they live up to their commitment. 2) The pool/BBQ area plays soft & low Hawaiian Music from 5 PM until (supposedly) 10 PM. The music sets the ambience for a nice BBQ or relaxing in the pools/hot tub. Each night around 8 PM the music would stop and we had to ask staff to turn it back on. On a number of occasions staff left us with the impression that "someone" complained the music was too loud. Management should consider these points: Quiet time is 10 PM not 8PM. Not all guests eat dinner at 5 PM some like to eat later. The music should remain on until quiet time at 10.

Noelani seems to cater mostly to the age 65 + guests. The future 65+ guests are now in their late 40's - 50's. If you want this demographic to sustain your resort in the future as return guests than Noelani needs to consider their needs as well.

These are just a couple of points that would improve our stay at Noelani. Having said that, the concerns noted are not enough to keep us away and we plan on returning next year!!

I will recommend Noelani to others without hesitation!
