“Great ocean front views!”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Aloha from Maui,
A couple of weeks ago I took a night off from the holiday madness and treated myself to a stay at the Lahaina Shores.

Being a resident of Hawaii who lives in the upcountry area of Maui it was nice to be at sea level for a change.

I had the most incredible sunset one night. I will include a picture from our lanai.

Lahaina Shores is a moderate priced property located on the beach in Lahaina, Maui. They offer studio and 1 bedroom units.

For those on a tight budget they have mountain view rooms, in their standard setting. I learned recently that a lot of condos here in Hawaii are listing "standard" as more than a view type. It is also meaning a unit that hasn't been recently renovated.

Because condos in Hawaii are all owned by different owners and then put in a rental pool the units can really vary.

During my stay I was in a studio ocean front unit. The unit was well worth the extra money. I have stayed at this property before, and the "upgraded" deluxe unit showed the extra love and expense by the owner.

Room Tip: I suggest spending a bit more money to "upgrade" to a deluxe unit and in an ocean front vi...

Carm and I stayed here in June of 2010.....Little late on the review.
We stayed at Lahaina Shores for 3 nights. Wish we could of stayed our entire trip here.
The beach is small and private. The grounds are extremely well maintained the staff was extremely nice. The room was very comfortable (we had the ocean view).
There is a great gal that helps book trips....sorry forgot here name but she was very helpful.
Another great thing is you only need to walk a few blocks into town which can easily keep you entertained for a whole week.
The Banion tree park is Awesome and some of the best restaurants around.
Don't hesitate to book your stay at Lahaina Shores.

Room Tip: Book the Ocean View....Worth every penny....Sunsets are Awesome!!!!!

Our stay at the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort was one of our best yet in Hawaii. The location was excellent being within a couple blocks of Lahaina Banyan Tree park area. The resort was always clean and quiet. The pool rules were enforced well, keeping it a relaxing and safe area to get some sun and swim. And access to the beach was steps away with a well locked gate that guest use their room key to open. The beach was pure sand and always clean and very empty when we were there. This was also another access to walk to the square in town.
The rooms were also excellent, being well stocked with any cooking needs you might have. Housekeeping had a diligent staff who kept the entire building and the rooms spotless. This is my new favorite getaway.

Room Tip: The view is fantastic from the ocean side or the mountain side. No bad rooms.

We stayed at Lahaina Shores from 12-07-11 thru 12-14-11. Had a great time, staff was very friendly, walking distance to anything in Lahaina. When we go back to Maui we will stay there again. Great place.

Lahaina Shores is a cross between hotel and rental. The suites are owned by individuals but they are offered as vacation deals like a hotel and they have a concierge. We got a great deal on this for the first week of school - I would not be impressed if we didn't get such a great deal. Because we got a great deal we had a mountain view which was very scenic and lovely but if you want ocean view they quoted us and extra $160 per night.

The suites are clean and the kitchen was fairly functional. They are somewhat dated as are the appliances. This did not matter to us at all but it may matter to you. We used the kitchen as we tried to do this trip on a tight budget...

That said, Maui is expensive. The price of food at Safeway, and Walmart was comparable to what we pay in a high end grocery store in Vancouver BC. Dining out is also expensive so we tried not to. Also they charge for wifi but right next door at Betty's (pub) they offer it for free sooo...we went for 2$ margaritas during happy hour to check our email etc.

We used this trip as an opportunity to learn how to snorkel. We bought a guide from: http://www.tropicalsnorkeling.com/

It was the best $30 we spent. We used it to identify places we wanted to go to. We saw the most wonderful things. Huge turtles and gorgeous fish. We did this on our own with a rental car. We bought our own gear. We went to a dive shop and tried some masks on to make sure we had gear that was going fit before we left Vancouver. We absolutely fell in love with snorkelling and had a great trip.

This meant that we travelled the Island extensively. I think Lahaina is the best place to stay. It had such a charming centre - the most AMAZING art shops. I saw genuine Warhol and Dali paintings and because of the economy they are hungry to sell (so be careful or you might end up buying something super nice). We also saw some great photography shops. Thomas Barbey and Peter Lik. So inspiring and beautiful.

I also loved the location of Lahaina shores. Just at the edge of town but very walkable. The town and location are why I gave 4 and not 3.

We had a 7th floor one-bedroom unit here. The views of the ocean from the apartment were amazing. Nicely furnished and extremely large unit. Full kitchen with everything we needed. Close to shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: High floor with an ocean view

Stayed there five nights on our recent trip to Maui, and we were very satisfied! We rented a studio with an ocean view, and our unit seemed recently renovated (it smelled new) and it had all the appliances we needed. However, it was the ocean view that just amazed us. Non-obstructed views of the ocean from our own lanai, at an affordable price, right in the middle of Lahaina - you just can't beat that. We started the morning with breakfast at the lanai, and finished the day with a night cap there - and even slept with the lanai doors open to the soundtrack of the Pacific. The beach in front of the hotel wasn't the best, but it had some pretty good snorkeling. We also used the pool and spa
The staff was also nice, the room was clean.The only drawback was that internet was wired and cost $9.95 a day so we didn't sign up for that.

Will be back when we return to Maui!
