“Wonderful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

We were using one of the vacation rental condos, but we found the amenities of the Maui Banyon to be perfect for our needs. The location is right across from Kamole II Beach and within easy walking of lots of shops, retaurants and sites.

The area is beautifully landscaped with lots of beautiful flora. We truly enjoyed the hot tub and pool and will make use of the adjoining BBQ pits next time we visit.

Stayed at the Maui Banyan over Christmas and New Years for a family vacation. Had a beautifully upgraded one bedroom condo, which has fully equipped with everything you need. The grounds are well maintained and the two pools are nice with newly tiled surfaces. The front desk staff are helpful with any issues. Would always book a unit that has been upgraded, as they all vary in apperance and decor. It has a great location across from Kam II beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgraded condo.

We stayed here one night as a transition hotel between longer stays. For one night it was fine. The complex resembles any reasonable condos you might find anywhere in the world but the place is rather soulless. The staff were helpful at the front desk which seems to always be teaming with people.

The suites are large and clean with good sized balconies. The property is well kept but utilitarian looking. It is close to the main Kihei beaches and strip mall shopping around the corner. It is well priced so for a family on a budget with younger children this is a good option.

I came to Maui recently (Dec 2012) for vacation with my wife and small daughter. Since it was close to holiday season, there was not much availability and even though there were some condos, i wanted to have a hotel where i could be more or less guaranteed to have a crib for baby. With condos it seemed i had to talk to outside rental company (at least the condo folks i talked to) and i did not want to deal with that or carry my own portable crib / pack n play. So i decided to stay here - price was good and there is a suite with kitchen. I realize that close to holiday season its hard to bargain, but honestly if i knew how this hotel is, i would not mind paying just a bit more (not $400+ to stay at a fancy resort at Maui) to get better room and service.

We had a standard 1 bedroom suite with kitchen,
First here are few god things on this hotel:
1) Good location in Kihei - very quite and close to beach
2) Front desk is friendly, no issues getting towels, booking activites etc

Now here are my issues with this hotel:

1) Requested crib multiple times on reservation - was not provided upon arrival, had to wait for half hour for this in evening while my baby needed to sleep
2) Housekeeping kept coming very late, even one more time after i asked to come earlier. Then it was fixed, but inconvenient for me for 2 days.
3) Many room aspects really need remodeling:
a) dishwasher is so old it makes extremely loud noise
b) some closet doors are barely working
c) shower head is not flexible which makes giving bath to baby very uncomfortable
d) kitchen fauset also not flexible - difficult to use.
e) carpet is so old its plain disgusting
f) pillows are terrible

So in nutshell, this place was not a complete disaster but in future i would try to avoid it and find something else. I really do not expect a fancy 5 star resort with posh treatment, just want basic things to work and operate normally and my room to be in realtively modern and working condition. Even for the price i paid i do not think its too much to ask. I realize some folks may be fine with their 1 bedroom suite rooms - i just have a sour taste after the stay...

Room Tip: they have many buildings - some are closer to beach than others. If you really want to be right on b...

Aloha and thank you for sharing your comments and suggestions. We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. We are glad to hear the location and front desk helped to make it an overall positive vacation.
Although the category booked was a standard unit, meaning minimal renovations, our goal is to ensure a comfortable and pleasant stay for every guest. Rest assured management has been notified and is already working to correct the issues, outside the scope of remodeling. Should you choose to visit Maui again we would love the opportunity to better serve you. If a modern unit is most desirable we do have deluxe units, meaning partially or completely remodeled, available. Please do not hesitate to contact management at any point if there is anything we can do to exceed your expectations during your next visit.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Have never stayed at this property, yet was compelled to since the rest of our group chose this establishment. Am a Honolulu native, & found the Maui Banyan to be a lovely surprise. It was quiet, comfortable, clean, conveniently located in the midst of Kihei; the staff was exceptional, especially Brianna & Jennifer, both at the front desk. Also, late one night, after deciding to rent a DVD (part of the activity fee), we found that we couldn't figure out how to work the DVD player. Because housekeeping was finished for the day, a young staff man came, & with patience & a smile, helped us figure it out. Although the Maui Banyan did not rate too high in TripAdvisor when I was booking it, I would recommend a much higher rating due to our very pleasant stay there. The activity fee of $10 covered not only free DVDs, but also a daily newspaper, use of the BBQ grills & pool/jacuzzi, a single tennis court in very good condition (we'll remember to bring our racquets next time!), free parking. The grounds are well-landscaped, neat, & managed very well. We stayed in a back unit in Bldg. Q, a bit always from the maddening crowd & busy Kihei Road - as kama'ainas, we received a free upgrade & later check-out time of 2pm, which was extremely convenient & wonderful for us, as we were scheduled for a late flight home. I would highly recommend this lovely oasis in the middle of bustling Kihei!

We have stayed here many times. Nice accommodations, grounds, staff, location. We had no notice on the web site or when we made reservations that one pool is closed. that means, no chairs available at the other pool, no room in pool or hot tub. Would have booked elsewhere if we knew and returned when renovations were complete.
