We are coming to Maui soon and are deciding between a 1 bedroom in the Lahaina/Napili Villas OR a 1 bedroom in the older section. Both units are oceanfront. My main reservation about choosing the Napili/Lahaina Villas is that the lanai looks very small in the pictures. It will be my husband and 2 kids, ages 10 & 8. Is there room for all 4 of us to be together out on the lanai? I've seen in some reviews that people complain about the lanai size.
The drawback to the older section is that we won't have a full kitchen or washer/dryer in our unit. We will eat most meals out and can live without the washer/dryer if we need too.
I could also save about $500 and go with just an ocean view in the older towers. Decisions...decisions...
I'm guessing either of these will be fine and I'm completely overthinking this but if anyone has stayed in both rooms and has an opinion, especially on the lanai size, I'd appreciate it!
