We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon from July 5 to 12. We booked directly through Coast and got a good rate (with one night for free) into a standard room (we told them it was our honeymoon when booking) and got upgraded to a one bedroom suite.
The suite was really nice - completely renovated - and had a wet bar and mini fridge in the living room area. The living had a flat screen TV as well as the bedroom. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked great in both the bedroom and the living room. The patio was a bit small, but had two chairs and a table on it - we could see the ocean when looking over one side of the patio, but it generally wasn't an ocean view.
The service at the front desk was great - they were friendly and helpful. There is a $15 per day resort fee (they mention this when you book), which covers things like the gym, the pool, the beach towels, parking, a shuttle (within 3 miles of the resort), etc. There are three computers in the lobby that you can use for free (good for checking e-mails and printing off flight confirmations), but you have to pay for Wifi in the room ($10 per day).
The pool area is really nice and has two hot tubs and a kiddie pool area attached to the main pool. There were a lot of lounge chairs and umbrellas whenever we went to the pool, but this was July so there might be more of an issue with this during the winter months. There is a pool bar that has happy hour from 3 pm - 6 pm everyday and live music from 6 pm to 9 pm every night.
There is a restaurant, Spices, on the property. We did not eat there after reading the reviews and only saw a few people in there on any given night.
This hotel is well-located in Kihei, with the Kamaole I beach just across the street. The property isn't beach front, but it's a less than 5 minute walk to the beach. There are restaurants and shops within 5 - 10 minute walk in both directions. Kihei has a Southern California beach town feel to it, but it's definitely not the same resort vibe as Wailea or Kaanapali, but it's nice for the budget conscious traveler. All the major attractions on the Island are easily accessible from this location.
