We are looking at booking the new Honua Kai resort in Kaanapali. It looks beautiful and the reviews are great. My only concern is when I look at some arial shots, it looks like there is some HUGE construction going on next door to the resort. Has anyone stayed at the Honua Kai recently and if so was the construction a problem? (i.e loud trucks, noise etc.)
Does anyone have an opinion on how the Kaanapali Shores stacks up against the Maui ElDorado, especially for a family with teenagers? And also for the kids to be able to walk safely to and from the Whaler area?
We've also been advised that, with teens, it would be best to stay south of Black Rock. Do you know if the ElDorado is south of Black Rock?
I am happy to find this forum as I've been feeling overwhelmed by all the condo websites. I think, due to a limited budget, I've narrowed our choices but would love info on these places: Eldorado, Kaanapali Beach Club, Lahaina Shores, Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas. The reviews of all of these are really contradictory making it hard to judge. We've got two 15 year old daughters and will be on Maui between Oct. 15-24 of this year. My husband and I would LOVE an ocean front, the girls want some "action", and a great pool... just not too quiet for them. We want them to have freedom but feel that they are safe. Do you know if, as the time gets nearer, the deals get better?
