Maui-More Than a Slice of Heaven

An October 2003 trip to Maui by Renee23

Quote: This was our first trip to Hawaii, and we feared we'd be inundated with cheesy tourism, but no! We found the people to be friendly and sincere.

Maui-More Than a Slice of Heaven

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
Our stay at the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel set the stage for a wonderful vacation. As a relatively budget-minded accommodation in a fabulous location, it can’t be beat. They pride themselves on being leaders in cultural tourism, and that alone makes them stand out amongst the crowd on the west side of Maui. Employing a super friendly and helpful staff doesn’t hurt, either. The weather in Maui was everything I’d heard—warm 24/7, cooling ocean breezes, a tropical paradise even in October!

The top activities my husband and I wanted to do were a luau, riding down the Haleakala volcano, seeing the Maui Ocean Center, and snorkeling ...Read More

Ka'anapali Beach Hotel

Hotel | "Kaanapali Beach Hotel"

The Ka'anapali Beach Hotel has been awarded many accolades and honors, and as far as I can tell they've earned them.

Attraction | "Snorkeling in Molokini Crater"

We booked this trip with Trilogy (http://www.sailtrilogy.com/?source=goto). I was very impressed with their professionalism blended with friendliness. We met at the Ma'alaea Harbor at 6:15am. The catamaran was fit and clean. There were about 50 folks on the boat, but it wasn't crowded (I understand some other tours take up to 100+, makes for crowded diving, if nothing else). We started off with a brief safety speech from the captain, coffee, juice, fruit, and fresh cinnamon rolls. Then we were off! We were exceedingly fortunate to have a rare calm morning out, and it stayed warm even though we wore little more than swimsuits and tanks tops at 7am. Soon we arrived at the crater.
