Maui Family Trip

4 of 5
Thank you so much for the kindness of the Papakea family. Everyone at the check-in desk to the concierge was super friendly and thoughtful. Room Review: Pros: The room was big and it was nice that we had a pull out bed in addition to the queen bed that we could put our toddler on. The Kitchen made it easy to make him breakfast as he's not big on waiting with us. We used the pool quiet frequently and it was nice, not overly crowded and came with a view. What was reallly nice was they gave you plenty of extra trash bags, toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, a roll of paper towel, etc so you don't have to run out and get those items upon arrival! The room also came with washer dryers, and tons of beach towels and beach toys and chairs! We even had snorkel gear in our room. The location was great with grocery and convenience stores close by and Maui is easy to get around with a rental car. Some feedback on things that can be improved: Although the room was reasonably clean and I felt good staying there - there was a little bit of mold on the inside shower curtain that made me uneasy. There were these tiny ant-looking things that came out in the bathroom occasionally - but they wouldn't touch our stuff and they went away on their own (I believe these are just native to the environment and not due to any cleaning issues). On our stove there was one burner that didn't work and it happened to be the big one in the front. Overall I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for families. Thank you Papakea!
