Help with Maui lodging

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Hawaii. We will visit two islands: Maui for 5-6 nights and The Big Island for 5-6 nights. We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary when we begin our trip in Maui. I would like our accommodations here to be special. I do not want a big resort. I want to feel as if I'm in Hawaii, and not just a resort. So far, I have narrowed our search to the following places in Maui:

The Paia Inn
Mama's FIsh House Inn
The Hooilo House
The Makena Resort
The Royal Lahaina Resort

I prefer to at least have an ocean view, but would like to have beach access. I would also like the feel of a garden with a lanai or balcony.

I know the last two are resorts, but they are smaller. I have priced them all and can get rooms that are similar in price. We will be staying at this location for 3-4 nights and visiting much of Maui before we head to the Hana Highway and will stay in Hana for 2 nights then head to the airport for The Big Island.

In Hana, I am tentatively planning on staying at Hana Ocean front Cottages in the main house (cottage not available). Is this a good choice? Other recommendations?

Any information is appreciated. Thank you.
