Incredible oceanfront location with 2 easy access beaches
My family and I regularly vacation in Maui. We prefer condos over hotels as we have separate sleeping and entertainment sections. This condo is superb and a real value too. It is NEW, NEW, NEW. Pictures do not do it justice. Our family fell in love with this spacious unit, and the Royal Mauian resort itself. It is the only oceanfront resort in this area and of this class that is flanked by 2 swimmable beaches. Even the swimming pool is oceanfront. We vacationed here with a senior citizen and an infant and found the resort very appropriate for our extended family needs. There are elevators for strollers or shopping carts. The Royal Mauian is adjacent to a grassy park area for playing sports with the kids and between two beaches, Kamaole I and Kamaole II. These beaches are idealic for easy water entry, snorkeling, etc. No rocky entry to get to the beach or to enter the water. Wow.
The grounds of the Royal Mauian are meticulously groomed and quite resort like without the $25.00 per day resort or parking fees. Every night we enjoyed drinks and dinner on the rooftop deck as we watched the sun set, pure paradise. I love the proximity to the Shops at Wailea, the Aquarium, the Plantation with tram excursion, and the Zipline for kids and adults. We went to additional excursions in Lahaina and Kaanapali and did not find the drive to them too far. Actually, when we were in Kaanapali we felt it was too dense and overbuilt and not the Hawaiian experience we were looking for. With Wailea and its many 4-5 star hotels only 5 minutes away, you have all the additional creature comforts you may want like a spa day.
We cooked almost all of our meals at the condo. The kitchen is HUGE and is fully stocked with everything you could imagine. With the free internet and calls, dishwasher, icemaker in the frig, and service wear for indoor and outdoor dining, this was a sure blessing for a great vacation.
Most condos we have stayed at have some level of deferred maintenance. Things looking a bit used or worn, and some even dirty. I am a very particular person and this place met and exceeded my expectations! We have already booked our fall trip there before the spot is taken. Thanks Steve for the great on-island service. You're the best!
