The dining room at this facility excellent. The artwork is attractive and calming, the tables are spaced so that quiet conversation is possible and the chairs are comfortable. The service is impeccable, but the main attraction is the great early bird menu. With seven entree...More

Our computer is fixedwith a few kinks but hubby is getting an MRI because of tumors from the WTC thing and any other time he is working. Anyway we are just obcessd with trying to get back to Maui.

While we were there nobody was at any of the beaches with 60 mile an hour winds and there were no boats out until the last day either and that's when we did the whale watch and GW pool and other activities .

Rooftop bars? (6 Replies)
I’ve searched through old posts but many many not be there anymore. I see the Nest as one of the better ones? Any others people can recommend?

Response fromAli O|
The Nest is nice, pricey but has a great view. Frolik is nice. Can be a little clubby depending on timing or if there's an event. MBar has a good view and good food. Monkey Loft. Sort of a divey nightclub vibe, not a high rooftop. Mexcaleria Oaxaca has great food and drinks, relaxed vibe, prices aren't inflated (like at Nest, Frolik, MBar - but not as nice of a view).
