I'm not sure how to write something poor about Maui. Maalaea is only a ten minute drive from the main airport on the Island. As such, you're able to leave the airport and get to your destination in no time. Were you going to Kaanapali or Lahaina, it would be another 20 minutes. We had a one bedroom ocean view and it felt very much like a small apartment. The bedroom and living room were divided by a sliding rice-paper door. There was a balcony that overlooked the pool and the ocean not far beyond. Everything was clean and tidy. The complex sits adjacent to the expansive Maalaea bay beach, which seems to stretch on for some distance with no interruption. It is a magnificent palce. It is very near a port, where catamarans may be chartered for daily snorkeling at Molokini. It's also a short drive to all the islands hot spots. Furthermore, it's as close to Hana as you can get on that side of the island, insofar as all traffic from the north and south sides of the island converge at Maalaea before heading toward the airport, and then to Hana. The staff was very friendly. The only drawback was that, on the weekends, the beach is popular for locals. They don't all appreciate the massive tourist industry. In all, though, it was a spectacular place and the lodging only added to it.
