Best Stay I Have Ever Had At a Resort!
The location was perfect, as our Condo ( C202 ) had the bast view of the lagoon, pool, and ocean! The living room was nice, with a TV, fans, table, and air conditioning!The kitchen was just stunning with all the appliances I would have at home, a stove, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, and sink. There was a washing machine and dryer, a very nice bathroom, and a lovely bedroom! This resort made our family vacation unforgettable!

This is not a resort but a motel. The rooms we hot were from 1960-70’s. Outdated, dirty, bugs, no room to sleep 4. It ruined our first vacation to Hawaii. No restaurant on property or bar. No beach access either. You have to walk over to other nicer resorts to get a drink or to the beach. The location is about 45 minutes away from the airport. I would look at other “resorts” to enjoy your stay. I slept in the roll away bed and my son on the loveseat. Not even a full couch. No AC in the bedroom either. It was so hot in the evening and the bathroom was like a small dungeon. Looking at the photos you can’t tell me this is a resort in Hawaii!!!
Good location, great week!

Just finished a week at Papakea. Views and sunsets are amazing. The grounds are well kept and there are a handful activities through the week including yoga, swimercize, mai tais, and lei making. Wish yoga was offered every day. There is also shuffleboard and mini golf. Lots of people used the BBQ grills which looked brand new. I purchased through Interval International as a getaway. There is a $17 a day resort fee plus tax for the entire stay that needs to be paid at checkout. They tell you about it when you check in. We had a decent unit on the second floor of building B. Fairly updated with nice furniture on the lanai to enjoy a view of the ocean and pool. The oceanfront buildings are obviously the best. Check in was fairly smooth and room was ready at four. Appreciate the person who came by to make sure everything was okay and that the a/c was working. Pool towel exchange was easy - call the front desk and they bring the new ones to your unit and take the used ones. Plenty of options for food within walking distance Badass Coffee, the farmers market, Java Jazz for coffee and breakfast, ABC store, Times grocery store, Slappy Cakes, Pizza Connection, Ono Kau Kau, Ohana Tacos, a number of food trucks, and Duke’s Steakhouse. It was also easy to get anywhere from Lahaina, Kaanapali, Napili, and Kapalua. If you are okay not being in the middle of Kaanapali, then this is a great location.
Great Ocean Front Condo's

G208 was a very nice condo and the home base for a memorable trip to Maui with my 2 great boys. We had a very nice 1 bedroom condo with ocean view from the lanai. Full kitchen with utensils and cookware. Washer and dryer in unit. I'm good with electronics and I had to connect the stereo cables that someone had disconnected rendering no sound on the stereo. I set up the stereo to work with the tv surround and I programmed the remote to work the tv, cable box and stereo for anyone even somewhat tech savvy to use. That made relaxing in the room listening to music or watching tv with my sons more enjoyable. I wish people who have no clue what they're doing with wires, knobs settings and any electronics to just not touch anything. Instead actually take a minute to Read. I added some brief instructions to the user card on the coffee table. Over-all this was a very nice place to stay.
Great family resort

We rented three units through VRBO. All were excellent. Papakea is great if you want to be close to the action of Kaanapali and Lahaina, but not IN it. It is much quieter with beautiful grounds. The grounds crew is hard at work from early in the morning until after sunset. Bbqs, shuffleboard, pools, tennis, and mini golf provide lots of options for the family. We spent most evenings on lounge chairs by the ocean watching the sun go down. There is a sea wall in front, but it is possible to get in the water there. There are even some fish and turtles out there!
