We reserved a car for July 18-24th back in February. RESERVED! When we arrived after 9 hours on a plane we spent another 2 hours getting our car. We stood in line for 30 minutes to be told that they didn't have any cars available unless we wanted to upgrade to a Porsche SUV for only $100 a day more.... More

I flew from Seattle to Maui and from Maui back to Seattle the first week of June 2014 and the experience was great. Unlike Delta and every other run of the mill commercial airline they actually feed you an in flight meal with a complementary glass of wine. I also never felt like I had to wait for trash pick...

Maui is beautiful, the scenery is fantastic. The island is not large and overcrowded, we had a fabulous family vacation here. I look forward to coming back over and over again!

Came here for some time with kids and a conference. Mornings are nice but by 10 am the wind picks up so much you don't really want to be at the beach or outside at the pool (which does not have enough umbrellas around so a select few get choice seating), . All attractions are far so you have to... More

If you like beer, I would definitely suggest this tour. They have a beer tasting afterward and also give you some free beer tokens for their restaurant that's north of Lahaina. Good food there as well, but the tour of their brewery was interesting. If you go try the Coconut Porter, I don't usually like dark beer, but this is... More

There is no place on earth like Maui. It is amazing, invigorating, rejuvnating and mind blowing. It is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. You can surf, swim, kayak, hike, shop, sight see or just do nothing - all equally satisfying on the magical island. If you have not been to Maui - get on a plane... More
