Honeymoon Stay

colemrussell (Grand Rapids, Michigan) on Jun 14, 2021

Loved our stay. The Inn was nice and private! We got the resort feel because we were able to have access to the rest of the resort, but we didn’t have to stay in a huge complex. our ocean view room was spectacular!

Musta been nice once...the beach still is.

Maui is a destination of choice at the moment. During this pandemic, with rules changing, travelers can now find a way to Hawaii. But there are caveats. Space is limited, car rentals are extraordinarily high-priced. On a recent visit, I could only book a limited amount of nights at a condo of choice, and had to search for a single night to finish our trip. I lit upon the Kaanapali Ocean Inn, and from the info on their webpage, and through Hotels.com, I thought the old school style of the place would be a nice way to say aloha to the island for now. But upon arriving to check in (they have a 4pm check-in, which is kind of inconvenient no matter how you look at it) I saw that the place is now a part of a larger Royal Hawaiian resort. That means that a golf resort bought out the site, kept the original as some sort of hotel mausoleum, but added all the horrible disney-esque aspects that you’d expect from a resort on Ka’anapali, with the only nod to the actual history and culture being a Luau dinner (those are actually cool if you’ve never been to Hawaii before...but only for once). The old Inn is now next to a large ugly tower, a small mini mall and a beautiful beachfront. The beach is the best thing here. There are problems with the rest of it. Here’s the breakdown: There were physical, managerial and bureaucratic issues that made the stay uncomfortable and unwelcoming. Physical: there was no air conditioning, there was a damp area under the sink. Managerial: the checkin was confused inefficient and time consuming. Bureaucratic: the staff seemed overwrought and defensive about the conditions and were overwhelmed by the seeming lack of support they were not receiving. The infrastructure of the facility was dated and in need of improvements. The staff seem to have lost the spirit of aloha, and you can’t really blame them. Because a resort of this type attracts a clientele that is entitled and demanding. All I wanted was a room, a beach and maybe a mai tai. The beach was beautiful.
