Convenient hotels in Maui?

Hey all,

we just booked our airfare to Kahului and were also getting the option of adding the Ritz Carlton at a reasonable rate. But upon closer inspection it would appear beach is not that nice and its quite remote so you know they'd have us by you know where each time we went to order a drink or grab a bite to eat. we are foodies and this is a big part of our vacation experience.

So we booked the airfare only and now need to find a hotel and i was hoping to get advice from locals or some of you more seasoned travellers..

What is a central location where we should be searching?? we prefer 4 or 5 star, under $500 nt, close to restaurants and dining options and have a nice beach.

Can anyone recommend something that would fit the bill or point us in the right direction?

Aloha! in terms of a centralized locale for your stay they have a conveniently located Courtyard Marriott by the airport and across from Costco, gas station and Kanaha Beach Park. Kihei sounds more attractive with condos right on the beach and 20 minutes drive from the airport and some hotels offer shuttle service. Kapalua has an airport but if you fly into Kahului Airport then you have a long drive ahead of you! it has great golf courses and beaches on that side but so does Wailea!

The Pakalolo is certainly free-flowing all about this thread...

It would be borderline moronic for someone coming to Maui for a vacation -- not a business trip, temp construction job at the Costco renovation project or one night gig at the MACC -- and booking the Courtyard Marriott..

Great job on the Hotwire find/booking, Canadian_en -- I believe you got great bang for your buck and will be quite pleased at the windfall of cashflow your shrewdness provided! :)

Lastly, the Hyatt's standard room size exceeds the Sheraton's by a large margin, though BLBL is correct about the best portion of Ka'anapali beach being adjacent to the blackrock (& the Sheraton). Staying at the Hyatt simply provides extra motivation to get out daily & stroll that entire beachpath! :)

Alo)(a, NKO
