Maui

Cool hotels/resorts in Maui for $200-$250/night?

I plan to visit Maui this summer with my husband and would love any recommendations for affordable hotels/resorts that cater to a more young, hip crowd vs. family-oriented.

For families, a condo is the best! Eating out in Maui (or anywhere in Hawaii) is unaffordable and always has been so. We've been going every year for 25 years and switched from hotel to condo after 2.

Wailea, Kapalua and Kaanapali are the most expensive. Instead, look for something in Kihei (the beaches are wonderful and family-friendly fun) or Napili Beach. They will be about 25% - 40% of the cost of other areas. You can Google Maui Rentals or anything close to what you want and there will be lots of listings.

If you get a condo, do as much grocery shopping as possible at Costco (near the airport). The savings are over 50%, even if you don't use it all. Costco was a Godsend for the locals! Local groceries are cost prohibitive since everything has to be shipped from the mainland.

Hyatt Regency Maui!!!!!  My boyfriend and I stayed at 2 nice hotels over our week trip to Maui.  Both were good, but the Regency was really special and memorable.

Tough question, imo. It will be hard to find something in that price range that would meet the "hip" standard. Most places in Maui are fairly family friendly as well and that's even if you go to a much higher price range. One place you might want to consider is the Hotel Hana Maui and Honua Spa which is more of a romantic/couples place. It's pretty much by itself, and it's beautiful. It will be out of your price range, so maybe splurge a night or two there, and then go back to something more Maui. Just to note, most of Maui is fairly touristy and family friendly, specially KiheiWailea and LahainaPaia is a sleepy, hippy town, and if your go up to Kapalua is more golf courses, large homes, big resorts like The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua

Sorry there isn't a no brainer answer for this one. Good luck!

My boyfriend and I always go through Aloha Condos for our lodging. They have awesome little spots (read: NOT family resorts) with quiet pools and most of them have poolside bars and are close by the "town" areas of the island.

Kaanapali Beach Hotel - beautiful beach side location - older property and most authentic Hawaiian hotel - 2 miles of beach - restaurants & shopping within walking distance - great snorkeling nest to resort.
