I will preface this review by saying the Four Seasons Maui is truly one of the finest examples of a hotel with both exceptional service and attention to detail. They are worthy of every award given to them but don't be fooled into thinking this particular resort is always the 'eden' for a romantic escape, either for your honeymoon or getaway vacation. I can only outline my own recent experience and leave it to your own opinions..
My wife and I arrived on Monday - March 27th, 2006. A long 13 hour journey from Washington DC.
Aside from the terrible weather which had been forcasted for our entire trip there (10 days), we were also surprised by the hotel's "family" atmosphere
The Following day - our first day there - we both walk down to the pool area and restaurant to celebrate our new marriage with a pinapple mai tai. After two of
those, I venture out of the bar to try and find a open chair/seat available around the pool area. There are none and the entire resort pool area is surrounded by families with a symphony of crying toddlers and other children chasing each other and screaming around the grounds. Chaotic is an understatement and I can only liken the experience to spending time at any amusement park wave pool so my wife and I decide to walk down to the beach. We kindly ask the beach consierge for a towel - he says they're
out of towels and are trying to track some more down from the pool. Needless to say, when you are spending nearly $700.00 a night, this is not really what you expect to hear. I go swimming in the ocean and come back to our cramped space on the
beach (no towel)which is packed with families and children everywhere.
Consequently - If you are looking for a wonderful place to spend with your family or group of friends with families, this is your place. If, howeer, you are expecting the serenity and peace needed for either a honeymoon or special vacation - do not include this Four Seasons on your list. Stick to the much smaller one on Kona.
