Maui bound

Overview

Quote:
There more to do in Maui than you have time for. We visited Haleakala: we were engulfed in clouds & disappointed with our view, suddenly the clouds broke up & we could see for miles. The view is spectacular & worth the trip up the mountain. We didn't do the bike ride but many people recommend them. That day we were glad we weren't on bikes: the rain continued throughout the morning. Rainslickers in Maui: nah! The Maui Acquarium was more fun than I expected: the "recording device" that they offer you was not worth the money. You could read the same information as you went along. The underwater tunnel was probably worth the price of admission. Swimming with the fishes without getting wet...Read More

Embassy Resort Maui Kaanapa

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel | "Embassy Vacation Club"

Best Things Nearby:The beach: the mountains: the palm trees. Hey! It's Maui: you could sleep on the beach in a tent! Best Things About the Resort:I enjoyed the hotel-type atmosphere. This is a negative to many people, but I enjoyed the valet parking, the daily breakfasts, the cocktail hour and the nightly lantern lighting festivities.Resort Experience:This is a converted hotel room.

Mama's Fish House

Restaurant

Mama's Fish House is a great place for a romantic dinner for 2. Right on the beach,in a coconut grove, the sunsets are breathtaking. The service is very good. The menu selections are somewhat pricey but it's Maui! Burger King is pricey--and this is so much more. The selections are prepared and presented beautifully and each time we have eaten there the choices we made were delicious.

Cheeseburger in Paradise

Restaurant | "Cheese Burger in Paradise"

Quote:
If you don't mind having a dining experience with someone that you don't know, this is a fun place on the beach for lunch. The tables are VERY crowded and they jam people into every open space. This is a very popular place and the wait for a table is typically pretty long. The fries were good but I thought the burgers were overrated and a bit expensive.
