A July 2003 trip to Maui by sschall

We stayed for two nights at this lovely hotel. It had beautiful rooms, great pools, perfect beach, and a convenient location. This was a good place to start our trip before moving to a condo for the balance of the trip.

Best Things Nearby:Turtles at beach at Maui Prince, surfing in Lahaina, sunsets on beach just 1 minute from timeshare. Swim lagoons and waterfalls about 5 miles in on the road to Hana.Best Things About the Resort:From the outside looked quite nice--nice grounds, about a 1 minute drive to beach. Roomy units.Resort Experience:We had high hopes for unit #140 at this "Gold Crown" on Maui, and were dissapointed to find that inside it was more like an older apartment. While it was probably once quite lovely, now its got worn out furnishings. The Hawaiian style sofa was very faded, the bed coverings were old, faded, and had some stains. The sheets were ill-fitti...Read More

What a beautiful place with a great atmosphere and great seared ahi. Kabana Salad was fabulous with gorgonzola and macademia nuts. Ribs were plentiful and tasty with a blackberry barbecue sauce. They had a kids menu that worked and the mai tais were perfect.

Great boat and a great trip. We cruised to the island of Lanaii and snorkeled at their beautiful corol reefs. We saw turtles, blow fish, and many others. Then we cruised and looked for dolphins, found a group, and dolphin watched for 20 minutes or so. We saw flying fish, got information on the islands, and finally landed near Lahaina for another round of snorkling, where we saw more turtles. Muffins for breakfast and chicken burgers and hot dogs for lunch were included. This was a great trip.
