12 S Kihei Rd, Kihei
Don’t be confused by the name of this condominium; it’s not in the town of Ma‘alaea. Landscapers do a great job; the resort looks well-maintained. Rooms are comfortable and clean, though some could use updating. There are eight buildings scattered around the five acres, and all seem to have nice views. Buildings A, D and H have glorious oceanfront locations. Compared to their more institutional-looking neighbors, this resort really embraces the ocean. Ma‘alaea Surf isn’t cheap, but it’s upscale for Kihei. Rooms are large and nicely furnished. Housekeeping is done three times per week. A few units do not have room safes. There is a basketball court on site. Some of the 2/2s are loft-style (with spiral staircases), but we prefer the one-story, ground floor 2/2 units. 1/1s (759 sq. ft.) are $220–$405, 2/2s (1,100 sq. ft.) are $295–$580. 5- or 7-night minimum.
