Trip to Maui

My husband and I went to Maui in February of 2008 and it was a wonderful time. The weather was wonderful and constant. There were very few bugs. We stayed in three different spots including: Hale Kamaole condominium, Ka'anapali Shores, and the Hyatt Regency. All three places had their pros and cons but the cons were nothing major. My favorite place was of course the Hyatt because their pool was awesome and the whole hotel grounds were breathtaking. Ka'anapali Shores was also very nice but they have a few extra charges like $9 per day for parking and $2.50 per day to use a safe. The grounds there were nice and the beach was good.
Hale Kamaole was nice because we had our own condo and we could buy a few groceries and eat whatever we felt like having. One activity that we took in was the Pacific Whale Foundation whale watch tour where our boat was surrounded by five whales who were in competition with each other over a female. They call it a competition group. They entertained us going around and even under our boat. It was nothing short of magnificent. I highly recommend them as a whalewatch tour. We also drove the road to Hana which was absolutely breathtaking and fun. The aquarium in Maui was also very nice and we enjoyed the audio tour they offer. We loved that everything is open air including restaurants and hotels. We want to take some friends and go back again soon so we can show them everything we saw and also to see what we missed. Coming from Saskatchewan Canada, the weather we are used to is freezing cold snow so I can tell you that we were in heaven over the weather in Maui. In summer we can get up to 100 degrees or more sometimes but the mosquitoes and flies and other bugs will have you indoors a lot. We really loved the constant temperature in Maui and even when it rained it was still really nice. See you again soon Maui.


"Hi, my family are planning to go in July and we're still haven't book the hotel. Besides 3 places you mentioned, any other recommendation?Thanks, appreciate your time"
