Kealia Resort #304 Mostly Good Experience
We stayed at Kealia Resort in #304 from april 28 to May 12, 2011. We chose this unit based on a few things we read in Trip advisor, and because it seemed to have the amenities my husband and I, and our best friends needed... the price was also a huge plus (the 7th and 14th days were free!). Our experience was good for the most part (overlooks the ocean, roomy, clean, lots of water equipment (we even left 4 swimming noodles to add to the collection), roomy shower). A few of the downsides were: the information given online about aC in the unit was incorrect... there was aC in only one of the bedrooms and in the living room. My husband and I unfortunately took the room without the aC, and we were pretty uncomfortable until we found an extra fan (there is a ceiling fan, but it didn't keep the room cool); the manager seemed to have alot of rules that we learned about only when we would do something 'wrong' or perceived as wrong... I felt we were being watched (not cool); the sugar cane fields were being burnt some of the time, so we would have ask on the lanai often; the water out front of this resort is brown, so it's not the pretty pristine water you hope to swim in when you come to Maui. If I were to come back to Maui, I would probably not stay in Kihei (it's touristy) although Kealia Resort is at the end of the all the resorts so it was really nice to have a little space.
In two weeks we did alot of things. Our top adventure for all 4 of us was ziplining with Flyin' Hawaiian! The 3 guides were funny and safety conscious. We really had a blast (first time for all of us) and would do it again in a heart beat. You will really love this adventure, very much worth the money... wait until you see and experience the last of the ziplines! By the way, we did the 7am adventure and that was a really good decision (it's not so hot yet)!
A very disappointing adventure was the Molokini snorkel tour - it was really bad weather when we went, and the boat had alot of people on it. When we got to Molokini, we could only snorkel in a small area and we really didn't see anything different from what we saw at other beaches. The boat captain made it up to us by taking us the Perouse Bay area and watching all of the dolphins... that was a blast!
Speaking of snorkeling... go to Honoloa Bay. When you get down to the bay area, you may be met by someone in a family that lives there... they have a little box for money... it's good to put a little money in that box! Honoloa Bay has some wonderful snorkeling if you snorkel out a ways on the left side... good luck getting into the water as you trying walking over all of the rocks (not much sand here). My husband and friends didn't snorkel out very far, so they missed out on alot of cool underwater sights and activities (octopus, turtles, fish I've never seen anywhere else). The family that lives here also makes some items that they sell, so bring a little cash.
Food - We loved Buzz's Wharf on Maalea bay (for the tahitian prawns (they taste like lobster))! We went there twice during our stay. Bubba Gumps in Lahaina was fun... get a table by the water. We spent Cinco de Mayo at a great mexican restaurant in Kihei but I can't remember the name of it (you can't miss it). Also another wonderful place to eat in Kihei is Big Wave... it doesn't look fancy, but they have great food, good prices and friendly service.
Other places of interested: Go to the end of the road in South Maui toward Perouse Bay - it's beautiful scenery and an interesting drive thru lava fields. Also some amazing homes! If you get to the bay early enough in the morning, you will see all the pods of dolphins more than likely.
Also, the town of Paia is a great place to go, including the Hoopia (sp) area on the beach where the windsurfers and surfers go for great waves. Paia is a throwback town with quaint little shops. It reminded us a little of Hanalei on Kauai (which we looove)! This whole are area is stunning and really reminds us of northern Kauai (which is our favorite place to be in the whole world)!
Rental Cars: We went with Thrifty... the deal on the web looked better than the paperwork we got... they also tried to get us to upgrade (but no extra cost) to what I called a 'land yacht' - much too wide and big, we could hardly see over the hood of the car. Fortunately, we went back in and told them that we wanted to get what we initially requested - a full size charger sort of car. Also, a Wyndham representative was at the counter at the time and told us that if we went thru a 2 hour Wyndham presentation in Lahaina, we would get $200 off our car rental ($100 per couple) - so we did it, and yep, we got that discount!
We went to the Warren and annabelle show in Lahaina - it was pretty good. We didn't get the food. I don't know if I would pay the money again. I think once is enough for this show.
We went to the Feast at Le Le Luau. It was a beautiful setting, some fine hula dancing, but the food was hard to eat (they bring the food to your table). There was alot of odd seafood, so if you like odd seafood, this is the luau for you. The last time we were in Maui, we went to the Old Lahaina Luau, and that was fantastic (just down the road from the Feast at Le Le).
I hope this was helpful for anyone that is looking to go to Maui, and especially in the Kihei area.
Love the location right on the beach with nothing next door but lots of beach to walk on! been coming to this resort and this unit for several years because of that. unit has been upgraded over the years and always enjoy the stay and the view.
