This resort is brimming with classic Maui charm, whether you’re here for the poolside naps or the family barbecues around the shared grill. If you’re not in the mood to cook for everybody, bring the crew to one of the restaurants within a few blocks of Hololani (there’s even a McDonald’s for the picky ones).
