This place will not be confused with any of the posh resorts in Wailea, but it certainly doesn't come with the pricetag either. This is a solid 3.5 or 4 star hotel with a nice staff and very good location. There is a beach that is just a 3 minute walk away, and also several restaurants and (most importantly) an ABC store all within a 5-10 minute walk. There is no charge for parking here, and the hotel is set back from the street so we didn't hear any street noise. We did not take advantage of the shuttle as we rented a car, but I could it coming in handy if you wanted to go to the Wailea Luau and visit the open bar a few times.
So - make no mistake - if you are looking for the ultimate luxury experience and money is not a concern for you, this is probably not your place. If you want a nice place to stay and do not want to completely pay through the nose, this is a great place.

This was the 2nd time at this hotel in Maui. We love the area. It's away from the over populated hotel area where you have to weave your way through the crowd to walk on the beach. But yet you can walk to a restaurant. They have entertainment at night by the pool with the tiki torches lit.
I ran out of clothes and used the washing machines, nice set-up, cause the use comes with the hotel fee. They also have a line up of bikes to use. We found the hotel staff very freindly. Bed was loaded with pillows and super comphy. Across the street is the beach where everyone gathers for sunset. Nice way to end the day if you happen to find yourself there at that time.
We took a drink over in a plastic cup, and just sat in the sand bank people watching with the waves comming in.
We like to walk the beach and the one directly across is kinda cut up with patches of lava rock inbetween the beach areas. But we did find the best walking beach like 10 minutes away by car. It's in a Bird Santuray, you can see the boardwalk from Kihei Road going north, or south comming from the airport. If you can get to the boardwalk,there are breaks in the railing leading to the best walking beach ever. Very few people and you can walk for hours. We saw whales jumping there too in the distance. Binoculars would have come in handy.

I was a bit dissapointed with the first room we got, but the hotel stafft upgraded us promptly as we were on our honeymoon. They also did not charge us when we did not check out at the usual check out time (normally you pay 20 dollars for each pur you overstay). Very friendly and helpful staff indeed.
The room was good, with a big bathroom (guess it was a suite). It was also very clean.The only downside was that we had a view to the car park and it got a nit noisy in the morning and evening. The pool area is nice, with live music in the evenings and breakfast at the poolside bar is also good.
This hotel is definitely a good alternative to all the overpriced resorts in Wailea.
I think the best thing about this hotel is the staff!

We recently spent a week at the Maui Coast. We found the staff to be friendly, helpful and available. The local shuttle was a real plus in getting around without a car. There were many good restaurants within walking distance and within the shuttle area. The pool side restaurant had good breakfasts (we didn't try the lunches and dinners) and there was evening entertainment there as well. With laundry facilities, easy access to local shopping, free local shuttle, clean rooms, friendly staff, we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We were in a junior suite and found it to be bright and was a good size. One of the hot tubs (spas...

Very friendly staff. Two hot tubs and nice pool. Close to beach. Nice bar with live music every night. Some interesting local talent. We have stayed there several times and always had a fun time. Many locals come for the drinks and music. Several TV's for watching sports is a nice bonus!

We paid for a reservation on Expedia.com for our 4 day stay. It was to be all inclusive according to Expedia with free parking etc. Upon check in the front desk advised there would be an additional charge for daily parking, newpaper etc. We refused to pay and showed them the Expedia website. Eventually they relented but only when we actually checked out and we had to have the discussion again. The hotel website clearly lists the additional charges, no argument, but on the Expedia website it listed the same services as included at no charge. I think both should be the same or at least the hotel should be aware of any "specials" other sites are selling rooms for.

The hotel itself was okay but no formal restaurant. There is a small bar/restuarant beside the pool with a limited menu and quite frankly overpriced. If you want a drink, great service by the pool staff, but when it comes to table service they need some help. We had to use a candle to read the supper menu and while I was eating my breakfast three other orders were brought to my table by different servers. For such a small place it should be easy to track the orders to the tables.

We had a one bedroom away from the road traffic noise and late night pool bar. Unfortunately when you want to sleep with the balcony door open a little you still get noise from early arriving staff, late guests other guests who decide everybody arround and next them wil know they are in a party mood at 3 a.m.

The hotel is less than a block from a nice beach with some secluded spots for easy water entry and sunning. We enjoyed a couple of sunset beach walks. Watch for the dog walkers, they have a lot of fun including a couple wearing sunglasses. All very friendly and you will walk away with a smile from the sunset, the dogs and their partners. also keep an eye towards Kehei bay for an evening show by the whales.

Room Tip: Be aware there are limited number of quality restuarants in the area. A number of fast food places a...
