I've stayed at several places on the island....but I will never return to the Papakea.
First off......got into the room and needed to use the loo.......upon flushing the toilet it was clogged (and no, number one doesn't do that to a toilet). Had to break out the plunger to fix that. Second- uncomfortable as-all-get-out mattress in our room. I mean, the couch was more comfortable. Third- the ac was LOUD! And you had to turn it on via a timer. REALLY?
On top of that, the cable didn't work on our 20" TV and the ceiling fan in the living room didn't either. I can't say much positive about this place except the grounds were really nice, the staff were friendly (even had a friendly way of telling me the tv issue couldn't be fixed), and it was close to my favorite place to eat on the island (the Maui Fish Market).
I had high hopes for this place with all the good reviews....but I guess it depends on which room you get (some much better than others).
Sorry Aston Papakea.....this will be the last time I stay with you.
