It's pretty rare to find a great hotel on a perfect beach, but that's exactly what you can expect to find here.
A curved, white sandy beach gently laps the shore. Great snorkeling can be found just a few yards off the south end of the beach. Safe swimming for most kids, inviting for adults, I've rarely found a better family-friendly beach. And it's all just a few steps from your hotel room. The hotel itself has an understated elegance, less over-the-top than most of its competitors in nearby Wailea. The pool area is a little disappointing for such a nice property, but with a beach this good, who cares.
The hotel offers a lot. Our package included a fabulous buffet breakfast. Parking, Wi-Fi, all included and no resort fee. We appreciated the little touches like a really fun mini golf-course (free), food to feed the hungry koi fish (just ask), and classes like yoga, scuba, and star gazing.
Our one complaint? We were disappointed by the cost to rent an umbrella for much needed shade on the beach - $25/day seems awfully steep.
Overall, a quiet, well above average hotel with a gorgeous setting.
