This hotel reminds me that you can't compare apples with pears. You can't compare a 5 star hotel like the Ritz Carlton at Kapalua with the Catamaran resort. Not the same category. But a 3 star category hotel can be very good. The location is very nice, and my room has a lovely view of the bay.
It just happened that the conference my daughter is attending is being held at this hotel. I'd rather be in a 5 start, deluxe hotel but you choose the conference, not the hotel.
The prices for a 3 star hotel should be right for the location and the season. Unfortunately, it is spring break, so the prices are not that low and there is too much noise for my liking, but that's not the hotel's fault.
In short, I'd rather be at the Del, but the Catamaran is a nice hotel for its class.
