“Incredible Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

We stayed at Hale Pau Hana Resort in May 2013 for 1 week and it was the best vacation! Beautiful resort right on the water, beautiful rooms, we loved every minute. Try eating at the 808 deli across the street awesome sandwiches for lunch. Cafe Olai doesn't look like much on the outside but the food and mai tais are perfect. We went with 16 family member and, golfed, snorkeled, hiked, boogie board, and spent most evenings bbqing on the resort. We can't wait to go back.

The unit is exactly like the picture online. Amazing location and grounds. We thought the unit could be cleaner if you care about corners, but we can't claim our house is any cleaner. The air conditioner could be a little quieter but it took away any traffic noise and wasn't terrible. The bed seemed bran new and was perfectly fine for the one of us with the bad back. The office staff was friendly and helpful for all questions. We did not find the unit hot at all with the afternoon winds and mild nights during the time we were there in mid-May. We snorkled right off the beach and could not believe what is under the surface, it looks like an aquarium. The lanai and beach were so wonderful we could have never left the grounds. We liked Foodland better than Safeway. 808 Deli and Bistro across the street were good, and we liked Stella Blue for breakfast and dinner. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We rented a ground floor apartment for a few days while visiting Maui. The Hale Pau Hana Resort is right on the beach. It has very nice facilities, and great views of the water, the coastline along Maalaea Bay, Kaho'Olawe, and (on a clear day) Lanai. Kamaole Beach Park is a few doors down, and from there you can walk the coast a long way.

There are a number of shops and restaurants nearby, some within walking distance. Foodland and Safeway are within a short drive if you missed out on hitting Costco on the way in from the airport.

The apartment itself was nice and well equipped. We had a one bedroom two bath unit. It had a nice big living room that opened up on a grassy area and the beach. The only thing that was slightly challenging was occasionally the parking lot was jammed, though this only happened twice.

Have been visiting Hawaii since 1955 (got married on Oahu, Aina Hina.) Been making regular trips to Maui since 1974, but have been to all five of the major islands more than once and to the HPH perhaps 20 times in last 25 years. Most all units are well equipped and tastefully decorated. Kamaole Beach must rank in top ten in world. Softest sand, level for walks or runs, both gentle and wild surfs. Steps away from fun snorkeling. Pool is clean. Luscious trade winds. Sunsets divine from every lanai. (Even seen the blue-green flash at least twice from here.)

The grounds and parking areas are first class. The housekeeping service, while not daily, is more than adequate and they always do their best with a smile. Reception and office staff are a joy to work with and can provide good advice for almost every request or occasion. Every room has a safe and is stocked with a good supply of dishes, glasses, and cookware...yes, and a few spices. Laundry facilities are available for guests at a small cost. There is even a selection of books there, free, donated by past guests. It's up to speed for the electronic world. The aloha spirit abounds from the maintenance staff to the guests. A perfect place to collapse and recuperate OR get revved up and do the town. Can hardly wait till next year!

Room Tip: I like the fourth floor or higher. For the view.

A great location to see the rest of the island from or a great place to just park it and relax. All units are ocean front fully equipped condos with maid service. Air conditioning in the bedrooms only. Their location is right in Kihei with all the convienences on the street side and paradise on the ocean side (and I think less rain). There is a very nice lawn / pool area with outdoor shower, chaise lounges and tables with steps right down to Kama'ole II. You can snorkle right there in a small area and see as many fish or turtles as nearly any other snorkle spot I've been to. A long beach trail passes through here and you can walk it for about a mile or more. Views of Molokini, Kaho'olawe and Lana'i. The sunsets are always stunning though they are into Lana'i and not into the ocean. The front desk is well run and grounds well kept with Kaspar doing morning rounds. There is a pay laundry next to the office. This place really is a "Gem" and we plan to return as often as we can.

Room Tip: Web tours of the rooms on their web site provide accurate descriptions.

Stay here. Seriously. The units are literally steps from one of the best beaches on Maui, and they all face the water with charming little lanais. The surf is calm, the snorkeling is great (on the left and right sides of the beach, by the rocks), and there is good food/fun nearby. You can rent paddle boards and snorkel gear just across the street. We stayed in 705, which had updated bathrooms and kitchen. We'll be back.

We have stayed here 5 years in a row and would not stay anywhere else in Kihei. We come as a family vacation and it is great Most of the rooms are updated but there are some that need some repair . 1,2 ,4,6,8,15,16 are wonderful. But dont stay in 5 or 17 they need some major work . It is central to everything with a fantastic restaurant across the Street, Cafe Ole. The view is wonderful from every room.
