Water but no coffee or tea in the lobby No place in the bathroom or in the room where to hang towels or a swim suit No luggage racks Pathetic food, seems like every Asian dish had the dame disgusting teriyaki sauce (we were lucky that Matteo's Restaurant was next door) A $20 glass of wine that tasted worse than a $10 bottle from Trade Joe's Neglected gym, not even wipes to clean equipment Broken pedal on a Peloton bike that didn't even have an accessory to put a phone or water bottle Views of the Parking lot/pool from most of the rooms

I booked through the Bonvoy app, then cancelled because booking.com had a better price. When I got there for check in, I was told my reservation was cancelled. I said that I paid the full price and that I saw the charge deducted from my checking account. The woman (Manager? She was dressed differently, more formally than other front desk staff.) said I need to take it up with booking.com because she wasn't showing me in the system. I called booking.com and they had to call the hotel. They reached the woman and she found my reservation, but she blamed me by saying, "I asked if it was under a different name. It was under your first name, not your last name." My first name is Myly, my last name is Posse. Two unusual names. Wouldn't that be the first thing you checked? The next morning, we woke up looking for the coffee maker. There wasn't one in the room. I looked up amenities to confirm that there should be one and the website included it as part of the amenities. Went to the front desk to explain we didn't have a coffee maker in the room and could we get some coffee? I was told the coffee place didn't open until 6 or 6:30, can't remember the exact time, but the front desk woman-not the manager--went in the back and brought us back two cups of coffee. She charged us for them. I know we were up early on California time, but I wouldn't have had to bug the front desk if the coffee maker was in our room. Nevertheless, we were penalized for their error. Other than that, the staff was friendly. The room and beds were comfortable. The infinity pool was sublime. This is definitely a well located hotel for walkers if you don't mind about 10 - 15 minutes to get to shops and beaches, and the trek back is uphill.

This is my favorite hotel on Maui. The reason is first, foremost and only due to their staff. Every front desk person greets you EVERY TIME you walk in the door. The maids look up and say aloha when you’re in the hallways and the bar staff is nothing short of amazing! Mark at the bar knows everyone and remembers everyone’s names. The jacuzzi is the best place to watch the sunset. The workout room is like having your own private gym equipped with everything including a pelaton. The infinity pool is great for those days you may not want to go to the beach. The rooms are ultra modern yet cozy and are quiet retreats. There are water stations on each floor with filtered water and ice, so no need to buy water if you have a flask. The front desk manager is amazing as well. This property is the epitome of what a Marriott staff should look like. They are professional, accommodating, friendly and plain and simply just kind, generous, welcoming people. Can’t say enough about this property.

For only slightly higher price (about 10%), you would do so much better at the other Marriott property down the hill by the beach. This was not near the beach, and with no shortage of space, the $30/day parking was just another way to get your money. Lobby was fine, but there was no one there to greet you as you arrive or help you with luggage. The "concierge" was actually someone at another property who is reachable by phone. The $30 breakfast was a joke. The infinity pool overlooks the parking lot. The "happy hour" at the hotel bar was basically a limited menu with a couple of dollars off, and attracted loud patrons who were either publicly fondling each other or acted like prostitutes (one woman fanned out one hundred dollar bills while doing a selfie at the bar). The room was fine and spacious, but the bed was saggy. I would not recommend this place.

We spent one night here in May 2023 as we were on Maui for a quick overnight. This hotel is so cute! It was so new and clean! I love how our room didn’t have any carpet, feels cleaner. When in Maui, we will definitely stay here again.

I stayed there for 2 nights and I am 6 months pregnant. The rooms felt like they had NO insulation and we didn't sleep either night. I called about the noise but nothing changed. I then contacted the Marriott at the end of my stay and there was "nothing they could do" to accommodate me. This seems to be a trend with Marriotts where they are "unable" to accommodate you and provide any kind of reliable, kind customer service. This is a very expensive hotel and not worth it at all. The pool and view are nice but there is no reason to stay there if you're looking to get a good nights sleep.

This was my first time to Maui. We loved the AC hotel. It is a smallish hotel. It has a beautiful infinity swimming pool and nice large spa. The patio area has a nice bar and they will serve you appetizers. The pool towels were always stocked. Many chairs and lounges with umbrellas. You can see the ocean from the pool but not the waves. The breakfast was very good. They had hot items that they made for you as well as a buffet of the cold items. Good coffee and many drinks to choose from. The last day they raised the all you can eat breakfast from $25 to $30. So that was a bummer. The room was very clean and minimalistic. We stayed on the garden side. Our adult son and wife were on the pool side and they said it was somewhat noisy. The pool closes at 9 pm. The view wasn’t that great of the ocean and it was an increased cost. The mattress was quite firm but not uncomfortable. It was about the firmest mattress that I have ever had in a hotel. I slept okay, but I would not say the mattress felt luxurious. The area the hotel is in is gorgeous. The ocean is fairly close. You may be able to walk but we drove. I met a woman who was a Maui native. She was having breakfast in the hotel . She was just there to have breakfast with a friend. She said that this hotel is a little gem. I agree and I would definitely stay there again. The Monkeypod restaurant is a short walk up the hill. The food was delicious. You would probably need a reservation.

Quick trip for business and the hotel was everything we needed and more. Great friendly staff, Jonell Aboy especially at the front desk was so knowledgable and friendly. 100% will be returning when coming back to Maui and will be recommending to friends. Air conditioning worked great, great shades, quiet hall ways, beautiful pool, big parking lot, everything a good hotel needs, this has.

Perris, California4 contributions11 helpful votes
Its a beautiful hotel off the waterfront. Staff were very nice and the lounge/bar is exceptional. You cant miss the parking lot standing out in views and pictures from the balcony, but thats a minor annoyance. Super enjoyed the lounge after hours with an environment conducive to conversation. The rooms are appropriate for the price, but the location inferior to beachfront hotels similarly priced. We enjoyed our stay, but wouldnt return. The hotel is set up under contract with several airlines and provides free rooms to airline staff for a fixed corporate fee. This means it is set up for short term stays and longer term guests are a bit short changed. Example - complimentary water only for the first night and you are on you own thereafter. No make up mirrors. Spa was not functioning for at least a week and was not fixed when we departed. Advised we could use a spa belonging to other hotel a 1/4 mile away. Seriously? A mismanaged solution to a fairly pricey Marriot. Irrespective, its a very nice hotel if you are not planning on beach access and only in Maui for the short term. Balcony suites are only larger balconies and not suites.
