    What a pleasure to stay here

    It was a pleasure to stay here! What a wonderful team... This is a nice and relaxed newer facility with a great location. The rooms were comfortable, the food yummy, and the pool freezing cold (Which i liked) Everything this trip was wonderful.

    I'll be back!

    Let me start by saying that if you want the resort vibe and this hotel isn't substantially less than the Marriott Wailea...then you'll probably be happier at the other hotel. This hotel caters more to business travelers, those looking for a stopover before checking in to the main hotel, and those looking to stay away from crazy resorts. If you haven't been to Hawaii and you've been saving up for the big trip with all of the extras, you might be disappointed to find out that it's not on the ocean and is missing some of the amenities you might see further down the road. No one is planning your dinners or bringing you room service here. It's definitely not for everyone...but it's for me. :) Personally, I loved it. I loved that I could get a cabana without paying $250, I loved the laid back pool bar, and I loved that I didn't pay a resort fee on top of parking. No forgetting where I parked my car or fighting for pool chairs at 7am like I've experienced elsewhere.. It's super easy to walk down to the beach, explore resorts, get to the shops, etc. Everyone we chatted with at the hotel was amazing and there was plenty of room to spread out at the pool and the lobby. I'll definitely be back.

    Just an ok hotel

    The hotel is well located , near beaches, restaurants and shopping. The common area are really nice and modern. Breakfast is expensive for what you get. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. You need to get a room facing the ocean otherwise you will hear the noise of the highway ( ask for even number rooms.. we had 211 and it felt like the cars were in the room) Also insonorisation is really bad, you hear the doors closing from the other rooms, the guest upstairs walking… staff was friendly and helpful. Parking is 30$ for the day and not included in the price of the room. For beach rentals you need to go to the Marriot residence, the concierge was not really interested in serving us.

    Resort prices without the amenities

    My husband and I booked a last minute trip to Maui for the final week of the year to treat ourselves for the holidays and our anniversary. Of course we could not find availability or good deals given such poor planning. AC hotel is new and modern plus I am a gold Marriott member so we gave it a shot. It’s a small and charming hotel with well kept grounds close to a shopping village. The staff is very nice and responsive and there is a bar overlooking the pool. I’m afraid the positives end there. The room is tiny. We got a king bed with ocean view but it also overlooks the pool so is loud until the bar/pool closes at 9pm. As others noted, walls are paper thin and balconies are so close to each other, there is no privacy. There is only one whirlpool with the same 8 people hogging it from 4 to closing. The app notes that housekeeping is every other day but when we got here we learned it’s every third day. For the price, I’d expect daily service with chocolates every night. There is a coffee maker in the room but no coffee in the lobby which is a basic amenity even motels have. I cannot recommend this overpriced hotel. Don’t feel any special treatment or value esp being a gold member. The hotel nickels and dimes guests from the breakfast buffet to parking. We’ve paid similar prices at other Marriott properties and felt they were better value so this was overall very disappointing.

    Do yourself a favor and stay here when in the area

    My wife and I came to Maui for a 7 night trip and stayed here on our first night after landing in Maui. Upon entering the property we were immediately greeted and during the check in process my Ambassador Elite status was recognized. We were upgraded to an oceanview suite. The room was craft fully decorated and furnished with all the latest amenities. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was very enjoyable, and overall it was a great night sleep. We also received a very nice welcome gift in our room of various local snacks, a nice card thanking us for our status, and a bag. This was a very nice welcoming gift and was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed breakfast on property and as an ambassador elite member we opted for the Buffett discount instead of the points. The way breakfast worked is you can help yourself to fruits, breads, pastries, cold cuts, yogurt, juices, and coffee. For actual food, you can order directly from the waitress whatever you want as much as you want (the portion sizes were similar to Tapas). We found this extremely convenient and allowed us to try quite a few things. The waffles were delicious. Overall, if you’re looking for something relatively brand new, with all the amenities one could want, and still be within walking distance of the beach for a fraction of the price, this place is for you. Our only regret was we didn’t stay here longer.
