A little piece of paradise

Napili Bay Resort is a hidden gem! I traveled here with my boyfriend and we spent a week enjoying excellent snorkeling, beautiful views, amazing sunsets and just overall relaxation.
The condo itself is small, but perfect for 2 people. The location is the best part about it. I appreciated that we didn't have to leave the area for anything. We snorkeled, swam and body surfed right in front of our unit. There was a store and many restaurants within walking distance. I liked the proximity to Lahaina and other great snorkeling spots (Honolua Bay is a must do! We swam with 8 turtles without a person in sight!). We had a delicious and romantic dinner at Merriman's (walking distance).
This condo definitely is beachfront, the waves are extremely loud at night, even with the windows shut my boyfriend had trouble sleeping. At times there will be families and noisy children on the beach pretty early in the morning, so don't expect to sleep in too late. This wasn't an issue for us, but Napili Bay gets a lot of visitors, so it's not exactly a quiet place (the beach, not the place itself- I thought the whole complex was very quiet and mellow).
For the value of everything, we felt that we got an excellent deal. Booking, check-in and check-out were a breeze.
All of the items in the condo are top quality (coffee maker, blender, pots/pans etc) and everything has been remodeled to reflect a lovely, modern, yet Hawaiian decor. I only wish that a beach umbrella was provided along with the great beach chairs. We ended up renting one from Snorkel Bob's for $15/week.
Overall, our experience at the Napili Bay was just perfect. We met many folks who were returning to this area for their 9th or 10th time!
We can't wait to come back!
