We paid ~180-200 dollars per night. This hotel is very nice. When you walk in, they will give you the Lei flowers. Well, it made my neck itchy but it's warming. It is located on a big black rock. They do have shows about the native on the black rock every night. The restaurant is good and price is reasonable ($30-40 per head without drinks). The room is very nice as well. It's not too far from Lahaina. We could not see sea turtles even we went to snorkeling trip, but we saw them many times from the hotel room. We went out swimming once and the turtle swam just right in front of us. Overall this is a good hotel.

So, most of the time, you just sit there. It could get scary going downhill with the speed but you kind of get used to it later on. I...Read More
