Maui and Kauai - Condo or Hotel

Jump to last reply

The wife and I are thinking about a couple weeks in Hawaii. Normally, we are hotel people, but are wondering about thoughts anyone might have between condos or hotels in these areas. Mostly, I'm a bit concerned that the hotels are much bigger than we typically prefer, and that the amenities (e.g. nice pool) are of less value if we avoid them because we don't want to be cheek by jowl. I can also see some appeal in being able to whip up breakfast or cook burgers for dinner or something. We will eat out a fair bit, but the option to take a break given the length of the stay may be nice.

So... thoughts from any of the Hawaii experts here? We are looking at Maui and Kauai mostly. We have only been to Hawaii once (Oahu and Big Island) years ago. Any particular condos to recommend or areas?

FWIW, the most likely hotel options would probably be some combination of the Andaz or Westin on Maui, and the Hyatt or St Regis on Kauai. We have enough points to cover rooms for pretty much the entire stay. We would likely be looking at upgrades at the Westin and St Regis as well. If anyone has opinions on these hotels, please let me know.
