"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
“Unit 602 - Great Time!”
My family of four just returned from a week in Maui. Our home base was Unit 602 @ The Polo Beach Club.
“Great Location - Right on the Beach”
This is a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with ocean view. We stayed for 12 nights. It was our first time staying in a condo/vacation rental vs a resort or hotel. We were a little worried at first, but it turned out great. We were so much closer to the beach than we would've been had we stayed at a resort. We could watch the kids (teenagers) on the beach from our lanai. It was great to have separate bedrooms and bathrooms. There was a king bed in 1 room and 2 twins in the other so the kids each had their own bed. The kitchen came fully equipped with everything we might need. It was so helpful to have a washer and dryer in the unit! There is underground parking which was very convenient.
“Polo Beach Club”
We have stayed at Polo Beach club over half a dozen times and several times in unit 602. The only time we do not stay in unit 602 is when it is already in use. The view is amazing, the unit is very well kept and has all the amenities that one could need. The proximity to the beach cannot be beat. There is an outdoor grill for use and even a herb garden. We will continue to come back again and again, and stay in unit 602.
The best thing about the Polo Beach Club was that we were right on the ocean! Apparently this was built before Maui had made a law that all beach front property needed to be a certain amount of feet away from the beach so its location was grandfathered in.
We stayed at this property for 6 nights. The beds were comfortable, kitchen was functional and the location was excellent! The hot water heater was half the size of a normal water heater which meant short showers (3 minutes each!) for our family of 5 and using the washer and dishwasher only when we knew we would not be taking a shower for at least 6 more hours. Also the internet was not the best internet. At first we could not get on the normal web sites we were accustomed to getting on like Facebook, trip advisor, Amazon, twitter and sites like these unless we were using dial up internet. This was very frustrating but we weren’t in Maui for this purpose so it didn’t ruin our vacation.
The management was very nice and eventually got us up to date internet. Also the sheets and blankets on the beds were cheap. It was nice to fall asleep to the crashing waves. We didn’t have any issues with our kids like others did who wrote reviews here and we are a loud family who likes to have fun.
The parking could use some improvement but the parking situation in Maui seemed to be the same everywhere (tight!). I liked the towels they provided for the beach. They were large and could soak up a lot of water. They also provided chairs and beach toys. The swimming pool is heated and the spa is hot. Here’s a tip though- right next door is the Fairmont resort and they will rent you an umbrella with as many chairs as you need, you can use their towels, they provide free sun block and water and all of this costs $45!
We had a great time at the Polo Beach Club and would return here again. I just hope they put in an ideal size water heater and update their wireless.
“Private Place on Maui”
We own a place on the North Shore of Maui but stayed here at Christmas for a week to change things up. it was an excellent choice. You have your own kitchen and separate rooms for the kids and adults. Right on the beach and the whale watching from the balcony is unsurpassed! We left our stand up paddle boards on the grass behind the property all week and they were totally safe. Great place...we're going back soon.
“Gorgeous Polo Beach Club”
We just returned from a perfect stay at The Polo Beach Club. The view was unsurpassed, the condo was well equipped, clean, quiet and in a perfect location, right on the sand. The sunset views were incredible each night. We were told that this unit has just been re-done with all tile floors which were very nice.
“Perfect Beach Location”
Just finished my vacation at the Polo Beach Club and enjoyed every minute of my stay in Unit #305 - an ocean front unit. This was the first trip to Maui for my granddaughter and her friend and having the beach right outside our condo was so exciting for them. They went swimming and sunning several times a day between our excursions, which were arranged for us by Wendi at Destination Resorts. We would start our day on the lanai with breakfast and end the day watching the glorious sunset. I read several reviews that complained of the dated 80's decor, but I found our unit to be completely acceptable for a vacation rental. It was very clean and the furnishings comfortable.
“Good location with access to great beach”
This hotel was great - good location with direct access to a great beach. The rooms were nice - not overly luxurious but clean and good size. Our unit, #807, was on the top floor and had good views of the beach and ocean. We traveled in April and spent each morning watching the whales from our balcony with coffee. The pool is nice, but rarely used being so close to a nice beach! Security on the grounds is very strict about only allowing guests with keys to access the gate protecting the grounds. Parking is in a garage directly beneath the hotels with reserved parking spots.
