Water Park-we arrived early before check in to use the water park. The changing room was not very useful. No chairs, benches, or hooks to hang things in the changing stalls. The water and ambient temp. were both too cool. Most people were obviously cold. We lasted a while but my sons were freezing. No towels were available any of...

This place is so dirty. The day we stayed everyone was complaining and 5 employees walked off the job. I heard it is up for sale and the owner must have just given up already. Sad because with some decent management it might have a chance to be a good place to stay and play.

The check in process took 45 minutes for my family and 1 hour and 15 minutes for our friends. They did try to hand out half price ticket and pizza, but I guarantee we will not be back. The room was sub par ... there were dust bunnies hanging off of the heater, the lamp was broken, and in order...

Very disappointed, room had apparently never been swept, that I could deal with. The dead bug in the bed I could not deal with. Entire resort is very rundown. We left and stayed at great wolf, much much nicer place. I thought we would try Maui sands even after reading all the poor reviews. We thought it can't be that...

Overall experience was fair. I could overlook the fact that the place was old and outdated, but the ambient air temp was uncomfortably cold and they were terribly understaffed. At least the kids had fun and there are lots of places to eat near by.

We purchased a GroupOn gift certificate for Maui Sands as a gift for my mother in law and neice. They arrived at check in time and we're told that there was no reservation. The desk staff were extremely rude and immediately my mother in law called me. I called Maui Sands to find out what was going on, and when...

Our room was beautiful. We had a Jacuzzi and a king bed. The staff was so helpful when we needed anything. The waterpark is amazing and well staffed. Plenty of towels, soaps, and coffee in our room. Breakfast was amazing a full buffet with lots of choices. A great variety to choose from. We visited the bar as well and...

Our room was dirty and rundown, much of the water park wasn't working when we were there, lifeguards were indifferent, parades of people came to the front desk complaining about dirty rooms and the like, and the front desk personnel were very unhelpful. It was the worst hotel experience we've had in years. It's too bad -- it's a place...

When we got there, there was hardly a wait for our room. Which was good considering we had been in the car for three hours. When we got to the pool everybody was amazed at how big it was. And even better was that having 5 little kids there was a kids area. we swam for hours and went to...
