Located on Kaanapali Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, you will enjoy all the comforts of home in this cozy, comfortable one bedroom, one bath condo located in the 'E' building of the desirable Maui El Dorado Resort. Enjoy coffee on the large lanai in the morning, and listen to the birds chirping in this tranquil paradise. A well equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals at the condo, or there are dozens of amazing restaurants within walking distance. Whalers Village, with its great shopping and dining is a short walk and the Sheraton next door has a fantastic spa. Walk down to the beach and enjoy the private Cabana exclusively for Maui Eldorado guests. Snorkle in the crystal clear water and watch the sunset from the cabana. Take a stroll down the 'beach walk' and stop for a cocktail at one of the many restaurants. There are several pools on the property and beautiful gas stainless steel BBQ grills for guests. There is also a small electric BBQ on the Lanai. There's a washer and dryer in the unit and 2 TVs. A privacy screen in the bedroom separates the 2 queen beds, perfect for families. We know you will enjoy this home in beautiful Maui!
We previously stayed in a different unit at the Maui Eldorado so when we decided to come back to Maui we again chose the Eldorado. The unit we got this time met our needs in every way and we had a great time. There were boogie boards and snorkel equipment in the unit that we were able to use. The only problem with this unit is that it is in desperate need of an update. I don't think that much, if anything, has been done to this unit since it was built. The counter tops, cupboards, appliances, and carpeting all show major signs of wear. The bathroom fan is extremely loud. The lanai doors don't close tightly and the wind whistles through the unit. The beds were older but were reasonably comfortable. Like I said, it met our needs, and if I wanted fancy I could have paid more and gotten fancy so I really have no complaints.
We just got back from staying in this condo. We loved staying here as it's centrally located and an easy walk to the beach.
The place does look like just in the pictures...decorated in the early 1990's, and is still that way. But it's in great shape, and I was there to enjoy the beach, not a fancy condo. We stocked up at Target and were very happy to find a large fridge and everything we possibly needed to prepare, cook and eat our food. This saved us a ton of money.
No major complaints here, very relaxing and quiet at nights. The only minor issues we had were with the washing machine. For some reason after each cycle(wash, rinse, spin, etc) you'd have to go and push the start button again. Wasn't a major issue, but it was a little frustrating to figure out. The toilet would also run, but a little jiggle of the handle fixed that. Like I said, nothing that important. You're in Maui, how bad could it be?
My wife and I stayed 3 weeks in January in this unit. There were no surprises and the pictures show it exactly as it is. The manager was prompt in answering any concerns or questions that we had. It is easily accessible and close to the pools and barbecues. Although not ocean front we did have a partial view of the golf course and ocean behind.
This was our third time at the Eldorado but first time in this unit. Although there are more updated units at the resort it had all the amenities that we required. It was clean and spacious with adequate furniture in the living room and the lanai also had an electric grill which we put to good use. . The kitchen was completely stocked and there were plenty of towels and linens. The unit has a newer washer and dryer and there were even beach chairs, boogie boards, and coolers available for our use. They could look at getting a couple of newer non stick fry pans.
We are planning on renting this unit again next year.
Pictures on VRBO showed a very pretty and modern looking condo. It was anything but...place needed a paint job, kitchen drawers, counters, fridge need updating... Vacuum smelled like dog poop. bathroom fan was so noisy, every time we flushed the toilet it made a horrendous noise, I had to clean the toilet before we used it, toilet seat needs to be changed, the slider door was difficult to open. There was next to no communication between the owner and us, we didn't even know there was snorkel equipment to be used till the day before we were leaving, we had rented our own.
As far as the area itself, it was convenient to the Whaler's Village, Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalui. The concierge at check-in was excellent and helpful. I would recommend the resort itself, but not this condo.
This was a charming condo for our short stay. Easy check in procedure, wonderful customer service not only from the el dorado but also from the owner. Both of whom we had to call at one point and both who answered my questions quickly and politely.
The condo itself is very comfortable with 2 beds and a movable wall so that you can make 2 bedrooms if wanted. A full kitchen was great to have so we could just do breakfast in and didn't have to go out for one meal. There is also a full laundry in the room. We also used the snorkeling find provided and drove down the coast always and swam with sea turtles.
I would recommend during your stay to go to the luau in lahana which is just a short drive down the road. Well worth every penny spent! And for your snorkeling excursions go through the pacific whale foundation. Not only was our day trip fun and educational but the proceeds went towards conserving the ocean.
All in all we cannot wait to come back and when we do we will be booking this condo again!! Don't miss out!!
We found the unit very spacious and reasonably clean. The beds and bedding were comfortable. Basics were available in the kitchen and there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't provided. A/C worked well and it was very hot during our stay so we were thankful for relief from the heat for sleeping. Enjoyed the beach and walks around the area. Good location to shopping and other amenities. Owners were easy to communicate with and hotel staff were also helpful.
