If you're looking for a vacation in a beautiful, tranquil spot with a golden-sand beach, here's your place. But if you plan to tour Maui, you might try another hotel. The Maui Prince is at the end of the road, far, far away from anything else on the island, so sightseeing in other areas would require a lot of driving.
When you first see the stark-white hotel, it looks like a high-rise motel stuck in the woods -- but only from the outside. Inside, you'll discover an atrium garden with a koi-filled waterfall stream, an ocean view from every guest room, and a simple, clutter-free decor. Rooms are small but come with private lanais with great views.
Facilities: 4 restaurants (including Prince Court); 2 bars (w/local Hawaiian music nightly); 2 outdoor pools (1 for adults, 1 for children); 36-hole golf course (designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr.); 6 Plexipave tennis courts (2 lit for night play); fitness room; Jacuzzi; watersports equipment rentals; children's program; concierge; activities desk; shopping arcade; salon; room service; in-room massage; babysitting; same-day laundry service and dry cleaning.
