We were three couples in three rooms with Garden View. One couple's room was very shabby, ours was okay and the third was good. The couple with the shabby room upgraded to Ocean View for only $40 / night (~$200 instead of $160). If you are not trying to save money, it is a great deal. The room and views of their new unit were much much better. However, this is a condo unit and each place is independent of any other. The management staff were very nice and took care of some minor problems but had no control over the state of the rooms. We don't know if the other ocean view rooms are as nice as the one our friends got. But overall, good value for money.
I have been to Maui 15+ times and this is by far the worst place i have ever stayed. The only thing nice i can say is that it waa clean. The bed in the room was awful aa waa the sofa bed. The door to the bedeoom waa a sliding door and it didnt shut tight and waa banging against the wall all night long. I got a parking permit from the front desk which is run by Castle Resorts and they were beyond rude. Luckily our stay was only 2 nigjts, I couldn’t have handled not getting any sleep for more than that!
We had a pleasant 3 night stay in January and enjoyed our beachfront view. No issues while we were there. Unit was a bit worn in terms of maintenance but nothing that impacted our stay. We had some ants one day, but otherwise generally clean. Would have rated as 4 stars, except for experience after our stay. I had declined the "damage waiver fee" when we booked. It was my wife, myself, and our adult son. I thought likelihood of any damage from our 3 night stay was low and we had no incidents while we were there. When I reviewed my credit card statement I saw we were subsequently charged $68 dollars after our stay. We were never notified or advised of any damage, our card was just charged. When I called, the front desk person told me it was for damage to a coffee table. When I said we we had no incidents or noticed anything, I was advised the manager would call me back. No response. I called a second time and spoke with front desk person, again advised manager would follow up and no response. The apartment has a lot of deferred maintenance, again nothing that impacted our stay, but seems like this is a scam if you don't pay for the optional damage waiver you are going to pay for whatever random "damage" they will attribute to you. Either don't stay here or just bite the bullet and pay their "damage waiver fee" upfront.…
The condo we stayed in was Oceanfront location where we woke up with the beautiful view of the ocean and the sound of the Waves were so soothing. Most of the resort had Ocean Front views and the service was great and the courtesy desk where informative.
Paki Maui is nicely located. We stayed in #102. Owner offered on VRBO. Great view! Easy access from parking lot. Easy walk to pool and ocean. Well stocked, close to everything. I would stay again! Had a great time!
