Worth it to use 300K bonvoy points for over a week in Maui? I keep hoarding these things but trying to plan a Hawaii trip and think now is the time to burn them

Which hotel are you looking at?

I stayed at the Westin Kanapaali a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Of course it cost a lot less then (12k SPG/night), but with all the Marriott devaluations it’s hard to say if it’s worth it.

I just did and am staying at the Wailea. Could’ve spent $4k but why would anyone do that?

How is it?

Don’t forget that you still have to pay resort fees.

Why Wailea over Ritz Kapalua? Am planning a honeymoon on Maui and trying to decide which!

So suite night awards worked? I keep going back and forth on which to book

Just stayed at Maui Sheraton (Black Rock) on points. Any questions?

Keep in mind every 4 nights on points gets you 1 free. So 8 nights of points will get you 10!

We booked at Maui Sheraton for the most basic room. Booked a resort view doubles room. Ended up getting an ocean view junior suite. There was still a $25 daily resort fee but we got free valet parked ($30/day) and free buffet breakfast for 2 each day ($33/person).

Have heard great things about Grand Wailea, but it’s a bit south compared to much of the main points of interest like Lahaina, Kaanapali, etc. There’s a nice Ritz-Carlton as well but it’ll cost you more than 300,000 points

I did! At the Wailea Marriott realer... I swear last month my wife and I RELOVED OURSELVES AGAIN!

The wailea location is really nice and central to Maui
