          Unorganized staff, non-working shower facilities in the water park, and the over all state of disrepair caused us to leave after a very short stay. I would not recommend Maui Sands. Nor will we ever go back.

          Considering bringing my family here over the 4th of July for a night away. My son is 3 years old and my daughter is 1 year old. I understand the 1 year old can hardly do anything except float in a pool with us, but will there be slides or things to do for the 3 year old? I would be disappointed to drop $100 and find out there is nothing but a pool for him to play in. Also, anything else to do nearby in the city such as bowling/golf? Any suggestions or feedback would be greatly appreciated!
