Guest Review From Trip Advisor

Visitor from Sacramento, California – April 2010


This resort type/condo was so beautiful! We stayed on the 11th floor facing the ocean and it was unbelievable. The beds are so comfortable. I can’t really say enough about the Alii because it is such a great place to stay! Kid friendly, steps away from the ocean, a quick walk to nearby *restaurants that do deliver for room service. We had a great time with our two kids and will be back again. There is BBq’s by the pool and the condos have full stock of pots/pans, silverware etc., you just provide the food.

*Please note not all restaurants deliver room service.

21st Annual Maui Onion Festival

Maui’s Kula onions are so sweet that Whalers Village throws a party in their honor every year!

This festival has been a signature event at Whalers Village since 1990 and brings thousands of kamaaina (locals) and visitors together for a one-day extravaganza of fun, food, and learning about Maui’s local agriculture.

Join us on Saturday, May 1, 2010 from 9:30am – 9pm and watch Hawaii’s celebrity chefs on an outdoor stage create one-of-a-kind recipes. Take part in the hilarious fun at the keiki (kids) and adult ‘raw’ Maui Onion eating contest. You can also shop at the many food and product booths and enjoy some of the best island music and Polynesian shows that you can’t find anywhere on the island.

Cost is free and Whalers Village is just a short stroll down the beach from Kaanapali Alii. For more information visit www.whalersvillage/onionfestival.htm.


Golf Tips That Are Sure To Help Your Game

From time-to-time we will post golf tips that are sure to help your game – enjoy!

“Out think your opponents on the golf course,” Dr. Dick Coop.

1. Play in the present
A good way to stay in the present is to focus not only on individual shots, but on pieces of shots. For example, if you’re facing a tough drive, concentrate on the preparation process. Pick a safe target, aim the clubface and align your body, key on one swing thought, and then let it go. If you get lost in the process, thinking positive, constructive thoughts, your performance will improve.

2. Know thyself
Does a bad round ruin your entire day? Does how well you play affect your relationships at home? Are you always saying you don’t play as much as you’d like to? These could be indicators that golf is out of proportion with the rest of your life. As I tell my Tour players, you need an out, something that makes you feel good about yourself — and has nothing to do with golf.
