We had a beautiful end unit (#300) with windows/doors on 3 sides so it felt airy and open. After reading the reviews, I was so happy to be away from the roosters but the golf course maintenance vehicles start driving up the access road (just a few feet from the lanai) at 4:30 am, so we had to close the back slider and put on the kitchen fan. During the day, the whole resort was quiet the week we were there with not that many people staying there. A few times I was the only one at the pool area so I would be able to read in peace.
Although we did not participate, they have a full week of free activities such as hula lessons, lei making, bracelet making, free ice cream & garden walks. So if you have a family and looking for things to keep them busy, that would be a good option.
The location was great and thought Napili Beach was one of the nicest in Maui. It's fairly small but good snorkeling and swimming. We snorkeled three times there and swam with a giant sea turtle which was one of the highlights of our trip.
Another plus is the Sea House Restaurant across the street. They have a great happy hour but it's pretty busy so make sure you get there early. You can sit outside and watch the sunset from the restaurant. The Napili Kai across the street also has a great "ocean walk" path past the restaurant which leads to a point with good sunset viewing.
Loved the full kitchen with every utensil you could think of so it made it easy to use the gas grill by the pool. The grill was cleaned every day.
We stayed in 4 different resorts on our Maui trip and thought that Napili area was the best location.
We exchanged our timeshare on Cape Cod for this resort and was quite satisfied.
