A great condo choice in a great resort!
Condos are a great alternative to the hotels at this resort, and MLP is the best here! (I’m assuming you know what a great resort Mauna Lani is, so won’t go into that). For roughly the same price as a room at one of the hotels, you get much more space, privacy, fully equipped kitchens, etc. There’s a pool pavilion, access to a great beach club, and concierge services. No room service, though (unless someone in your party is nice!)
The units are all owner furnished, so they’re all a bit different, but high quality. They have a blend of 1 and 2 bedroom units, with ocean or mt views, so lots of options (and price points). A few seem to be owner occupied full time; many are owner occupied part time; and many are part time owner/part time rentals, so the result is, it never seems that crowded.
This is one of the older condo developments at the resort, and that’s a good thing. These units all are solidly built with thick walls and ceilings; no noise at all from the neighbors. Plus, the buildings are arranged so that the units all look out over the golf course or such; they don’t all back up to each other the way the newer developments tend to. Don’t get me wrong, the new ones are pretty nice, but they remind me a bit of a Calif suburban condo development.
