We loved the Wailea resort. Rooms are nothing special, but the grounds are beautiful. We went early February and never had any issues getting a great seats at the pool and one of the nicest beaches is only a short walk. I found it to be one of the best point redemptions per dollar as well, especially if you get the 5th night free.

Ritz kapalua was enjoyable, but get a bit isolated. We liked Kaanapali and Wailea for a better vibe.

Also not much of a beach at Ritz Kapalua either.

Have tons of points and suite night awards (which I don’t think I can use at ritz). Definitely interested in taking advantage of beach and water sports / other outdoor activities (hiking, tennis, etc.)

Check out the Andaz Resort. So nice
