This is a hidden jewel just north of Ka'anapali. It's not much to look at from the outside (3 cinderblock buildings) and my condo (#117) was showing its age in some ways (broken levers on louver windows). But it was well worth the reasonable price I paid. The staff is very helpful and on the first day orientation, you get a lot of help in signing up for the Maui activities you want to enjoy.
If you want a base of operations on West Maui, this is the place. If you just gotta have a "resort" experience, then go down the highway to Ka'anapali and pay a lot more. But even at any of the Ka'anapali hotels, you're not going to get a room as close to the ocean as any condo at the Noelani. One of the memories I'll have of this trip is listening to the surf at night as I slept. And every morning I was greeted by a great view of Moloka'i across the strait.
I was afraid that traffic noise from Lower Honoapi'ilani Road just outside my condo was going to disturb me a lot but I could hear the traffic only while in the kitchen and the bathroom. In the bedroom, I could hear only the sound of the surf.
One bit of advice: if you can, wrangle a condo on an upper floor because it gives you more privacy. My condo was on the first floor and it seemed that almost every person walking by my lanai couldn't resist looking into my condo. I could have closed the curtain but then I would have cut off that nice breeze that always seemed to be blowing through.
