Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club (Marriott Vacation Club timeshare)
Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club is a timeshare that is part of the Marriott Vacation Club system. It has been converted over the last few years from the Maui Marriott Resort Hotel into this timeshare. The first step in the conversion was a major expansion of the pools and the addition of children’s water play areas. The second step was combining every two hotel rooms into one timeshare room. The third step was the addition of two buildings for more timeshare units. Phone 808-667-1200.
The Marriott is on Kaanapali Beach, within walking distance of major resort hotels and condos. Because they are really converted hotel rooms, rooms in the original building do not provide as much space as normal multi-bedroom timeshares or condos, and they lack the full kitchen that most people expect in a condo or timeshare unit.
There have been some complaints about the rooms posted in reviews on TripAdvisor. But the rooms in the two new buildings are better, and do have complete kitchens.
My main concern about people staying at Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club, is that they may be talked into buying a timeshare that I feel is tremendously overpriced. When all charges for such a timeshare purchase are considered, it appears to me that it would be cheaper to just bank that money and use it to stay at any hotel or condo you like, whether on Maui or elsewhere.

There is another Marriott on Maui, called the Wailea Marriott. That one is in a completely different part of Maui and is not a timeshare. There’s also a Courtyard by Marriott hotel by the Maui Airport in Kahului.
If you already own a Marriott timeshare someplace else and can trade for this one, or if you can get a good price on a room to stay here without buying a timeshare, then the Marriott Ocean Club on Maui would be a good place to stay. Otherwise, see reviews and photos of hotels or condos on this side of Maui at West Maui hotels or West Maui condos.
