Sheraton is awesome, great location, great beach and incredible snorkeling experience directly in front of the Sheraton at Black Rock. It was our 15 year anniversary and as we love beach vacations and live at the beach in San Diego, why not Maui again for the 5th time. This time was special, the Sheraton was the first Hotel in this area 50 years ago, of course it has been remolded. We love the pool, the fact that it is not a High Rise, the staff was excellent, and the food and drinks were great. We decided to upgrade to the Deluxe Ocean Front top floor in building 6, we could not have been happier. We had a large room, patio, and were overlooking Black Rock and the snorkelers every morning while having coffee. We were able to see the turtles coming up for air and the Spectacular Sunset every night. We loved our Room!! The only downside for some people, would be to get to the pool or beach it takes a little walking and elevators. Normally we like to walk out and be on the beach, but, our room location was so great it did not bother us. I talked to our Housekeeper and she said she had been there 26 years, she loved working for the Sheraton, she said they were very good to the employees with food and great benefits, Health Care, etc. I have always been in the hospitality business so am always happy to hear of an excellent work environment.
We went snorkeling every morning, the sea life was so good this time at Black Rock we went there almost everyday. Normally we travel around a bit, but, we could not top what we saw here. Of course we are always impressed with the Giant Turtles, so many this year, the Beautiful and graceful Spotted Eagle Rays. Our biggest thrill came one day at around noon we were out by the point of Black Rock and spotted what we thought were several Dolphins, we were so excited only 10 ft. away, to our surprise and delight there were about 100 Dolphins swimming by. We were shocked and thrilled, never encountered any sight like this in all our Snorkeling adventures around the world. What a wonderful Anniversary Present, we could not ask for more. We still can not stop talking about it and luckily since my husbands Go Pro Froze, we met another man who saw them and since then has sent us the footage.
We went to the Sea House for dinner in Napili. went to Honolua Bay for snorkeling which is always great, afterwards stopped at The Gazebo for breakfast. Dinner for our Anniversary at Ruth Chris, always good. Dinner at all the Restaurants at the Sheraton was excellent, we were not disappointed. Golfing in Maui is always a treat even though our Home Course in San Diego is Torrey Pines.:) We golfed at the Plantation Course in Kapalua and played King Kamehameha, closer to the airport.
We love the location of the Sheraton because it has the beautiful walking path for miles, easy to walk to Whalers for shopping and restaurants. Easy to get to Lahaina. We have been to all of the Island, but, Maui is our favorite, because we like to have more choices, yet it can be calm and quiet when you want it to be. The only thing I need to add is there is not enough umbrellas by the pool, and you must rent the Umbrellas on the Beach. The weather was wonderful, but, you could not sit on the beach or near the pool for any length of time without an umbrella, there is no shad to be found.
Thank you Sheraton for making our 15th Anniversary a special, we can't wait to come back.....
