This is our second time staying at the Ritz Carlton and we cannot imagine staying anywhere else! The staff was excellent, the food was impeccable, and the service was more than anyone could expect. Everyone was welcoming and smiling regardless of their jobs. They shared with us recommendations for food, shopping, and excursions. We had a fabulous time!

We had a wonderful time at the Ritz Carlton! The staff was really welcoming and friendly and we were greeted with "Welcome and Congratulations on your honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. Newlastname!" Everyone we spoke to on the entire island of Maui congratulated us on our honeymoon because the Ritz had told them we were celebrating a special event. It really made our time that much more special. The early morning room service we requested was extremely prompt and the servers were so very friendly. It was a great way to start the day! I will say that I was slightly disappointed by our housekeeping services. I guess I was expecting fun little towel-animals and/or heart shaped anything in our hotel room when we returned every night or at least some sort of friendliness expressed in our room from housekeeping. It was semi-lacking in that department, in my opinion- especially for a Ritz Carlton that did so much in so many other ways to make our stay special. This may have not even crossed my mind if I didn't take notice to the fact that our shower wasn't cleaned every day and neither were our sheets. I started waking up with bug bites all over my legs which was a little skeevy. I do appreciate though, the effort put into saving the environment, but a clean shower would be a nice touch. Overall we had a lovely time and were sad to leave!

World class excellent resort

We stayed for 8 nights at this beautiful resort and cannot wait to return. As many reviews mention, the staff are absolutely outstanding - EVERYONE is so welcoming, polite, friendly, helpful and cannot do enough for you. We would particularly like to say huge thanks to Lisa from Loss Prevention and Joan in House Keeping who arranged a beautiful flower display in our room much to our surprise after our wedding on 30th November at Kapalua Bay and for looking after us generally during our stay. Facilities and shops are absolutely excellent. The only suggestion we could make would be an additional evening restaurant just to provide some variety but otherwise this is the best hotel we have ever stayed in

Always great Ritz service

Nice short walk to a secluded beach with great burger stand. The Costal trail is a nice 1.75 mile walk to get your day started. Excellent pool service and a nice workout facility. The Banyan Tree restaurant was closed for renovations but I’d highly recommend a walk to Merrimans for dinner.

Beautiful stay

We stayed at the Ritz for 3 nights, following our 4 night stay at the Fairmont for our babymoon. The attention we received at the Ritz was far superior than at the Fairmont. Although the rooms were not suites like at the Fairmont, they were still very comfortable and lovely. The all you can eat buffet is absolutely delicious- my favorite was the omelet stand and the homemade donuts! A special thanks to Thomas Hussey at the concierges desk who helped us plan all of our excursions. We explained to him exactly what we were looking for because the lady at the Fairmont concierges was of no help. We loved the Luau and sunset cruise he recommended for us. He even went into great detail with directions, parking, etc etc, something the Fairmont obviously could not do for us. Thank you Ritz and we cannot wait to be back!

Lovely Rooms, Mediocre Service and Location

I think part of the reason you stay at pricey properties is for nice rooms and a ‘personal touch’ type of service. We celebrated our honeymoon here as platinum SPG/Marriott loyalists and while they did eventually do something nice to acknowledge it, every staff member we interacted with from check-in to departure was generally unenthusiastic. The rooms are lovely, beautifully decorated with HUGE TVs, I could barely peel my husband away :). The valet guys are also extremely prompt which we appreciated. Maui is definitely a driving island and while the proximity to Lahaina is good, Kapalua is rly far from tourist activities such as the starting point of the drive to Hana. The resort just feels extremely remote, empty and commercial, I wouldn’t recommend it for the price. For comparison, I’ve stayed at the Hyatt Regency on Maui which is one less star but recall getting much more personal service and ample entertainment onsite.

Almost Perfect Stay

We visited the Ritz Carlton Kapalua from Nov 30 to Dec 7 and stayed in an Oceanfront Suite One Bedroom. The Good: The hotel itself is beautiful and well-maintained. We spent a lot of time poolside and found it very comfortable and clean. The views from the hotel restaurants were gorgeous and overall the property is spectacular. Our oceanfront suite had a large lanai overlooking Makaluapuna Point and DT Fleming beach, which was a great place to watch the sunrise and sunset. By far, the best part of the stay was the staff at the hotel. Every person we encountered was so friendly and helpful, we could not ask for better service. If you are planning activities on your trip, take advantage of the wonderful concierge staff -- Sara and Jules helped me plan an amazing trip and gave me some great tips on where to eat and what to do. The poolside attendants were also a big highlight of the stay -- we always had all the drinks and snacks we wanted. The Bad: The beds were so uncomfortable that we hated going to sleep at night! The mattress was extremely hard and the pillows were extra flat. No love for side sleepers at the Ritz. The other disappointment was the food. We visited the breakfast buffet several times because it was convenient, but the food was always cold, even in the chafing dishes or under the heat lamps. Room service food was also a bust. (The food exception was dinner at Hook & Knife, which was excellent.) Not a huge deal for us, but something to consider, the beach near this hotel is a long walk down a steep path, and not very popular. There is a shuttle available, but we didn’t see much activity there. I’m not sure if we’d stay here again because sleeping comfort is a huge part of hotel selection for us. Also, paying $42 per person for a buffet only to get cold scrambled eggs and waffles is not a great start to a day. I really wish that was not the case, because otherwise, everything was perfect. TIPS: We didn’t realize this until the end of our stay, but the nearby Honolua Store had literally all the supplies we needed, from groceries to toiletries to souvenirs. Definitely check them out if you stay at the Kapalua Resort. There’s also a shuttle that will take you to any part of the resort for free. Ask for it at the valet.
