“Maui Timeshare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

We stayed at the Maui Schooner in September 2011. We had 3 condos. Our stay was very nice. The resort is older, but very well kept. The staff was wonderful. They were friendly and took good care of our needs. The beach is a non swimming beach, but a really nice walking beach. Excellent swimming beaches are nearby. The resort was quiet and peaceful. It was a layed back atmosphere. Be careful of the front desk steering you to Safeway for groceries. She told us it was the cheapest place to shop......lol.......it was 3 times as expensive as the other stores. There is a grocery store nearby that was a lot less expensive.

The resort is tucked in among several other condo/timeshare type units in a convenient and quite location. While the resort is on the beach side of the street, it is not an area recommended for swimming but it is a nice stretch of beach for a walk and pretty views. We are the type that typically set up base camp where ever we stay and venture out daily to explore the beauty of our vacation spot. We didn't spend much time just hanging out at the resort, as there are way too many things to see on Maui. The Maui Schooner was perfect for us, our favorite amenities were the washer and dryer, which were used daily for our beach towels, and such. The beach towels, cooler and chairs also went everywhere we went too. The front desk was friendly and helpful. Based on our needs we found the resort to be clean, comfy, and quiet. We would stay here again.

We just spent a week at the Maui Schooner as a timeshare exchange. While the location was good, north of fantastic beaches and south of the airport and Lahaina, the resort itself is more of a condo development than true "resort". Limited amenities and the only activities onsite seemed to be tennis and shuffleboard. The pool, while clean and well maintained is small and was very cold the week we were there. The hot tub was nice and warm though. Limited shade at the pool but never a problem finding a chair to lounge in and read. It's nice that there are grills available but sometimes there were folks waiting in line for them. Our unit was billed as a 2 bedroom unit but was really only one private bedroom and a loft with its own bathroom above the living space with no privacy. Still, it was only the two of us so we used the larger loft space and just stored our luggage in the second bedroom (which had windows facing the outside walkway and was probably not as quiet as the loft). Every unit has a private lanai with table and chairs. We did enjoy having a bathroom on each level which made getting ready to go out faster. The full kitchen was great too for making breakfast and picnic lunches for the beach. Grocery stores are not far away and with prices what they are on Maui having breakfast in the room most days saved a lot of $. The beach at Maui Schooner is not swimmable at all but just south of the resort are fantastic beaches. Highly recommend you pick up a copy of "Maui Revealed" for great advice on beach access, restaurants, etc. We relied on it so much it was a 'must have' in our beach bag each day. All in all, I'd stay at Maui Schooner again because of the location but if you're looking for luxury, this isn't it.

Room Tip: Building A is oceanfront and has the best views but is evidently saved for owners at this resort. E...

This is not a 5-star hotel. I was disappointed to trade my Newport Coast Villa timeshare for this hotel. But upon settling in, the privacy was wonderful, it was quiet, beach out your slider, they provide beach chairs and cooler. The sunsets are beautiful and it was like having your private backyard. All evening we saw one couple walk by. Large bathroom area, bed was fine, nice walk in closet. We had the 2/2 on one floor. We were on the first floor and it was quiet. It is dated, but it is well stocked and clean.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room facing the ocean. Pool is in center. We did not use. Foodland is right down t...

My husband and I spent most of our honeymoon here earlier this year. My mother-in-law got us this as a gift through Interval International, which is a time share trading company. The place was spacious enough for up to 4 people. There was a small bedroom with closet, a bathroom with a separate shower/toilet, a small kitchen and living room/dining room area. We also had a patio with table and chairs. The pool and spa were convenient, and there was a short walk to the beach. There wasn't much sand you could sit on, but there were beautiful views! The room was clean, we were provided with necessary basic items for the kitchen, and beach towels, chairs and cooler. The only complaint we had a was rude lady at the front desk, no secure place for luggage if you are waiting to check in (it was in an UNLOCKED shed outside). They took care of any needs we had, and we would definitely stay here again when we come back!

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor, which was nice because you could walk right out to the pool and be...
