In 2019, I had a chance to visit Maui for the first time with my entire family. I had been to Oahu previously, but never to Maui. You always hear about how different the islands are and this was definitely the case with Maui. The island made me feel like we were in a small town, and not in a commercial tourist trap. We stayed at the The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas, on Ka’anapali Beach. It was an absolutely gorgeous facility. Walking distance to Dukes, and has full access to the pools of the other Westin hotels. A shuttle bus runs between the various properties of theirs, including to the major shopping areas. That makes it very convenient to get around for free. The one negative though. I was not a fan of the hard sell of the timeshares. I understand why they do it, but it makes me think twice about booking their hotels in the future.
