My Accomodation Nightmare

If you've been to Hawaii already can you offer any suggestions on where to stay?

For price and location I'm looking at the Aston at the Maui Banyan right now....I'm hopefully going to talk to someone who's husband works in the hotel industry (and is a frequent traveller to Hawaii) to find out if it's any good

Has anyone else stayed here?

it's the site I used. And a lot of resorts will have condos attached to their property which have been privately bought and are rented out. That's the route we're going. It's going to be about the same price, but the condos are a lot nicer than the hotel rooms and we'll be able to cook. Hope this helps =]

We are still trying to decide as we may have families with small children coming by, and the parents are a little afraid of crossing a busy street with little ones. Once I find out, will give you a post!

I was looking into condos in Kihei but I had friends stay there and said it was DEAD after 8:00 pm every night. I Have a wide range of guests, some of which I know would like to go out and explore some nightlife so I wanted to be near places that offer that.
Another awesome thing is how many different types of rooms they have at all different prices!

"A" rooms are totally updated- typically with all stainless appliances, nice tiled floors. My dad gutted his condo and spent $100k updating everything. It's SO nice.
But on the flipside, "C" rooms are totally.... straight of the 70s with totally outdated everything and usually just have a gross feeling to them.
I was able to secure "A" rooms for all my guests... but it was tricky even with a contact at the resort.
If I didn't have that "in" with my dad... I probably would have used VRBO.com to book rooms. That said, it was BEYOND wonderful to have everyone at the same resort. Papakea was big enough that I could have my family all placed in the same building but request that my friends be on the other side of the property
Not sure if any of this made sense- but happy to help anyone out if they need it! I've been going to Maui (west side) since I was little so know the area quite well.
