Rated 4 out of 5 by davidu MY ONLY COMPLAINT
The guest that tie up the best viewing lounge chairs every morning for the 6 days I was there. from 6;00 to 4;00 the same families left there belongings on multiple ocean view chairs. I believe when the chairs are unoccupied they should be available to all .This was the worst year
I have seen . I was there 1-30 - 2-6

Had a great time with the kids at the pools, nice variety. Also had a good dinner at Pailolo where Angela took good care of us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by eagca Not non-smoking!
Smoking is permitted on the patios of ALL rooms. I am now in a wonderful room that is next to a person who is a chain smoker, so I am forced inside the room with all doors closed to prevent smelling their nasty habit! This is a VERY bad policy by Starwood, who lie about being smoke-free! The smoke enters my room if I leave the door open and stinks up the whole place! Starwood should BAN ALL smoking--on the patios, in the stairwells, and on the property! They don't, and it is a very negative aspect of my stay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tlb23 Need to update amenities
We booked this room with the belief that there would be a full size refrigerator, and we bought food thinking we could store it. Turns out it is only a small, under the counter refrigerator. We lost money on the food we bought, and had to spend even more to eat out. Disappointing, especially since we know returned and see the rooms are advertised as having full size refrigerators. Also, a guest walked off with my bag (wallet, phone, etc) during the first 1/2 hour of our stay. They realized their mistake after about 30 minutes, but security was VERY slow to arrive and was not helpful at all as far as helping us.

Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointedfebruary2015 Tiny room with no lanai
One of the worst rooms I've ever stayed in anywhere around the world. Outdated old furniture worst sleeper sofa I've ever seen with paper thin mattress and no lanai just a narrow water run off !! The view was the kiddie pool. And this was an upgrade! Absolutely terrible. Will never recommend this resort to anyone. My cousins were staying in the resort to the north. They came to see the Westin and said they were so glad they weren't staying there! They thought our room was terrible compared to the huge gorgeous room they had for less money too!!! This was my nephews surprise birthday trip and first time to Maui. He was very disappointed in the room and especially the horrible sleeper sofa he had to endure. I have been to Maui many times and this was our first time staying in a resort and our last. The timeshare presentation was Not appreciated or wanted by us. We had no intention of buying there but especially after staying in our tiny room would absolutely never buy there. We were really angry after the presentation that we were shown the really nice new rooms then had to go back to our tiny outdated room. The staff all said yes they knew our room was old and not great!! How nice for them to acknowledge that then turn around and say we could have a nice room for next time if we buy it!!! Wow. The grounds are very nice and well kept. Your staff, other than the ones trying to sell us the timeshare , are very nice and friendly too. Those are the only 2 positives I can say about this resort. We will never accept a Westin resort package offer if sent to us again. It's not worth it at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JE326 Nice hotel but service was lacking
During our stay;
* The first room we were given, the room key didn't work
* Once we got a key that worked the room wasn't cleaned
* Front desk stay was unhelpful in finding another room
* As soon as we got to our new room the toilet clogged
* Waited an hour for maintenance to turn up
* Maintenance left a mess
* Waited another hour for housekeeping to turn up to clean the mess
* In all the toilet clogged four more times while we were there
This is a nice property, in a great location but the service does not meet our expectations of the brand. We were hoping for a nice relaxing vacation but ended up spending far too much our our time dealing with "issues".

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ecbatana Beautiful property, felt like a timeshare
The property itself is high quality; the grounds are immaculate; the setting right on the beach is remarkable - made even more spectacular by the humpback whales breaching just offshore and the island of Lanai on the horizon. Plus, sunsets on Maui are unlike anywhere else on earth.
While my overall impression did not meet expectations, I would be willing to give this property another chance - but it will absolutely not be my first choice when returning to Maui next time. I would have preferred it if the choice for "Would You Recommend this Hotel?" had a MAYBE option.
- Disinterest, lack of attention and lack of professionalism among the staff that is not typically characteristic of Westin
- This is an ownership property, and while it is possible for non-owners to stay here, there is notable pressure to join the Vacation Club.
- I found the poor behavior and attitude of the sales staff of the Vacation Club to be the most irritating part of the entire stay.
- Food and beverage was average quality; again, general malaise among the staff.
- The fitness center is poorly outfitted and too small for a property of this size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SadWestinVacationsOwner Leaky toilets and airconditioner!
Booked four rooms for four families to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday. Requested rooms be near each other. Rooms were placed on opposite sides of the lobby, one on the North side and the other on the South.. When questioned, the front desk attendant said curtly its just a request that they didn't have to satisfy. In our room we are on our second toilet leak in addition to an air conditioner leak on the carpet! They take care of each problem but we are scared of flushing the toilet and have to step on soggy carpet. Westin is really bringing our vacation down.
