We exchanged into Maui Lea and were very pleased with the accommodation. The resort exudes a casual and relaxing ambience. We were told that something like half the residents live there most of the year, which might explain why the staff are so wonderfully attentive.
Located at the southern end of Kihei, almost to high-end Wailea, the resort has a 24/7 checkin, which was just as well since our flight was late and we did not arrive until 1am. Our 1-bed unit was spacious although the kitchen could have been a tad larger and slightly less space provided in the lounge. AC and spacious lan with nice view of the ocean, although we were located too near to the sometimes noisy South Kihei Road. The reception staff like other staff members is excellent/friendly; during our one week stay we had several requests, including a power strip that they accommodated. Beach chairs were available in the unit closet. The grounds are well manicured and there is a splendid pool, which is where the resort offers a splendid complimentary BBQ Tuesday with hot dogs and mai tai, music, and a splendid Elvis tribute show.
The upshot is that we love Maui, partly on the basis of our experience at Maui Lea; we prefer Maui to Kauai where we visited 2 years ago. The Maui people are friendly. We had some great trips out to Po'olenalena Beach (a tad murky for the first few feet but quiet), a day trip to Haleakala Crater, the Sugar Museum, and the winery at the Ulupalakua Ranch (where you can get a wonderful elk burger).
Restaurants? So try Cuatro near Foodland.
If we return to Maui, we will certainly want to return to Maui Lea/Hill.
