Pros: The resort's beach has access to an impressive cliff that's very popular for diving, and there's even a cliff diving ceremony at sunset every night. Certain rooms have access to a private space (with ocean views) for a free breakfast and happy hour (with beer and wine and food) every night. It is a quiet, relaxing place to grab a quick breakfast and then decompress at the end of each day with a glass of wine and snacks. The resort is also situated walking distance from lots of shopping and restaurants. One of the highlights is the luau, which has impressive hula performances and a very yummy buffet — including a whole-roasted Kalua pig!
Cons: The weather in Lahaina isn't as nice as in Wailea, so be prepared for possible stormy, cloudy days. The rooms also aren't as luxurious as some of the other resorts. Overall, it has more of a family friendly vibe, so couples might feel a little overwhelmed by all the kids, especially in the pool areas.
