The hotel and beach are very attractive and the rooms are quite large, although the decorating is bland and rather cold. The staff are the same - rather distant and unfriendly, unlike the many other Fairmont properties we have visited. There is very little shade on the property.
Cabanas and beach umbrellas must be rented and were all booked by the time we arrived. The food is barely ok and is a rip-off. Example: a poor-quality beach-bar hamburger is $16, with french fies another $5 (cheese is extra too). The level of service is low compared to other Fairmont hotels, such as long waits for pool-side service and no turn-down service. When it was time to leave, I waited half an hour for a bell man and had to haul my luggage to my taxi myself. There are a lot of other good hotels on Maui - skip this one - we certainly will next time.
