Maui is paradise!
The whole holiday went very well - everything on time and as planned. All accommodation was great,and the staying at the 3 locations was just perfect for seeing the whole of Maui. (Aston Maui Banyan, Kihei; Hana Kai, Hana; Napili Kai, Napili Bay). Car hire pick-up / drop-off with Hertz was fast and easy.
We really enjoyed the Aquarium.. had a great Dolphin and Whale Watch with Pacific Whale Foundation - saw a Spinner Dolphin pod with over 50 dolphins in it and also about 15 Humpback whales; mothers and calves as well as a competitive male pod of 4 all vying for a female!). Spent much time on the beach and at the swimming pools too. Found the food in local restaurants very good. There were several restaurants within walking distance from the Aston condos, which was nice when we just didn't want to use the car.
Hana was beautiful and a nice change from the more commercial areas.. even if a bit windier / rainy. The Romantica restaurant cabin serving vegetarian food was a particular gem we found in Hana - you could eat by the roadside - or take it back to the hotel as we did and eat whilst watching the waves on Hana bay roll in. The walk up to the waterfalls past Hana took 2 hours each way with our 4 and 6 year old - but was a great hike and highly recommended. My husband went Power Handgliding and got fantastic views of the coastline around Hana (and photos too).
Napili Bay was just lovely, the staff at the Napili Kai Beach Resort were fantastic and with everything just there is was a great last few days in Maui. Sitting on our Lanai, eating dinner, watching the sun go down was just perfect.
The 2 bed apartments is the Aston and Napili Kai were both fantastic with lots of space.
Thanks for helping us get it booked!
