If you go to the bar, they obviously were understaffed or they just forgot about us. We sat 20 min before we were even asked for our drinks order. We got up and left because it was taking way too long.

Had lunch here and wasn't really impressed. First, the doves are flying around as you eat...one buzzed my head in an effort to reach another table's abandoned french fries. I'm all for alfresco dining, but trying to keep the birds away while eating is a bit much. The portions for all meals was ample. The french fries are crispy and... More

We were down here daily for the drink of the day and happy hour. The bartenders and amazing especially Robert! The food is great, i recommend the Kalua pork quesadilla! They have a local band that plays every night and the atmosphere is super relaxed!

I don't think I have ever had any good here for food. Drinks are ok. Band is ok. Food is terrible. Fish and chips taste like fish sticks from a box! Ick! I am sending back!

First visit to this establishment. We came for the Happy Hour thinking we going to Ani Ani. Walked through a short path lined with vegetation to a cabana setting. It was very comfortable; there is a view of Haleakala and the stars. There is not a water view other than the pool. We were greeted warmly, they new we had... More

This place is hidden in the pool area of the Maui Coast Hotel....what a little gem. There is no view, but just a great place to relax. A great happy hour. Good atmosphere by the pool, good priced drinks and appetizers. Even the fancy tropical cocktails are included in the happy hour prices. The staff was very friendly and helpful... More

Our Hawaiian vacation started on a Saturday, but the four of us (2 couples) decided to fly in early and stay at the Maui Coast Hotel for a night to shake off the flight and the time change a little bit. We dropped our bags and headed to the Kamaole Poolside Café. The first thing I ordered was the Mia... More

I love eating here. Not only do they have great food all day long but there's a pool and hot tub AND the beach is right across the street. You can't go wrong here, whether you're staying at the Maui Coast Hotel or not. That and they have music most nights. Love this place.

There was live music and a decent menu. The drinks were average and the service average too. The pool had disruptive guests in it so that may have had an effect on how our time went.

Had a wonderful time last night. The moon was amazing and the music superb. I live on the island and haven't come for awhile. I was blessed to come on a night when Margie and Kelly subbed for the usual Friday night entertainment. They were very good and I'd come again just to hear them. We ordered Fried Lotus Root... More
