    Great place to stay

    Have stayed at the Papakea yearly over the past 10 years. Well kept grounds and amenities that suit us. We are a senior couple and don’t require a lot of entertainment other than to be away from the snow and cold. Resort has two swimming pools and two hot tubs that are well kept. One thing that we enjoy is that there is no beach! There is lawn to a sea wall and the resort provides chaise lounges where we sit/lay and read and watch the whales. We usually go for 6 weeks, late Jan to Early Mar. There are two large bbq areas for tenants with several gas bbqs each. Close to shopping including groceries, farmer’s market and a 10 min walk to car rental. We plan on returning and have a booking for the next two years.

    Beautiful Maui

    Our party of four stayed in unit G302. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony and master bedroom. The unit was very clean and very roomy. It was easy to get to and from it and our car in the parking lot. Very well situated in Lahaina, within walking distance of several places to eat and shop. In fact, the back gate of the property leads to an ABC store, which came in very handy. The resort had some nice activities for families, e.g., Lei making and Mai Tai night. We enjoyed ourselves.

    Great location

    Excellent location to get to other beaches. Did not use pool or hot tub, there is a whole ocean out there. The balcony and ocean view were great. The bathroom was a bit dated but very clean. You will need a car to get to good grocery shopping and all the nice beaches and restaurants.

    Great trip that could have turned sour, but didn't. Thanks

    Had a great time. The possible exception was while being dropped off sitting in my nephew's SUV, a White couple, "Karening" peeping from behind bushes, apparently reported us to security. Security handled this professionally, averting a possible horrible experience.
