“Maui paradise revisited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2011

My husband and I returned to the Maui Eldorado after 13 years ,and without any children.We were relieved to see that everything we loved before had not changed..the individually decorated rooms,the uncrowded pool and the immaculate landscaping.
The woman at the activity desk suggested we snorkel on a catamaran trip based in Ka anapali rather than Molokini and we had the most amazing time..we were glad of her recommendation.We saw so many dolphins and turtles and the boat crew were fantastic.
With friends in other units the location is perfect for walking ,beach and easy walking distance to Whalers village.
We are already planning to come back with the kids next time.

We loved the location, staff, peacefulness, and proximity to beach for swimming and snorkling. It's fun to bring a laptop or Ipad down to the beach cabana and wave to the webcam which records you in realtime. Friends and family can see what they're missing!

This place is outstanding and hard to fault. It has all the bells and whistles, a short walk to the beach (note: anyone who needs to use those golf buggy’s to travel the 300 metres clearly needs the exercise) The beach cabana is a great idea worthy of adopting more often. It’s also a walk of less than a kilometre to The Whalers Centre. Modern and spacious if your budget can afford it you can’t go wrong here.

In Maui after our son died in vehicle accident, chose this spot at the last minute. 2-bedroom condo gave all 5 adults lots of "breathing room." Convenient location and wonderful staff. Got home, realized we forgot stuff in the dresser, they mailed it to us the next day. Nice having the washer/dryer in unit and fully stocked kitchen (need the pizza cutter, right?) We thought this was a lot better than the big resorts as we got out and explored rather than sitting by a pool, have someone bring drinks/lunch then walking to the inhouse restaurant for dinner. Great price and exactly what we needed.

My husband and I stayed for 4 days, J bldg. studio partial ocean view at the Outrigger Maui Eldorado Resort, We were on our HONEYMOON! We wished we could have stayed here instead of traveling to other island. Our money spent well. studio unit we were in was HUGE! SPACIOUS! It was a surprise for us and a treat. Unit is fully equipped. washer, dryer, stove, oven, and a full refrigerator. Unit was clean. Truly! It felt like home with extra special treatment. WE BOTH LOVE, LOVE the lady at the Front Desk (MaryAnn) cute sense of humor, she made our honeymoon vacation to remember forever! First thing we walked into the lobby she greeted us like we belong here. Everyone was great, but the first expression is much memorable. She hooked us up with local food and location. Sansei, Kobes, Maui Mixed Plate is where everyone should go. Excellent food! We think we have gained a little hahaha!, but our was spent well again! MAUI IS TRULY THE BEST!

As others have said, great location. Short walking distance to the Sheraton and Black Rock. Not that far of a walk to Whaler's Village either. We jogged next to the cart path for some exercise over to the village. Parking garage is in the middle, we were in unit I-201, right next to the garage with a partial golf course view, yet it was booked as a 1 bedroom garden view. The unit is huge for what you pay, 2 beds (we only used one), and a big living room area, plus the patio.

Only cons I have is there is no work out facility. If you want to work out, you'll have to pay to use a facility. We jogged along the golf course (as many others do), did some pushups, and swam laps in the pool located on top of the garage instead.

We also stayed 2 nights at the Kapalua Villas as a splurge and liked Eldorado better. The Villas were fancy smancy, but for the money, we thought the extra space and fancy stuff wasn't necessary. The location of Eldorado makes it the winner.

A clean (firm) bed and shower area is what you're looking for in these places. This one had some mildew on the shower head, so do the Villas, but I can over look that and did mention it to the staff and my followup survey. Both beds were clean and firm here.

Black Rock is the best snorkel location, and this hotel is right there. Don't worry about the views. Garden view is fine, and your view will be of a golf course no matter what you pick, even if it's a garden view. Some units do see the ocean, but you're gong to see that in person any way. So if you're on a budget and don't care about the view, the garden view is going to work and you'll be surprised.

Room Tip: Garden view is fine, don't worry about the view if money is tight.
