Ocean View just popped up available. I have Mountain/Garden View.
Is it worth it?
Also for Mountain/Garden View is One Entry or Two Entry doors better room/view?

OV and Mountain/Gardenview only in Lahaina tower. Hyatt side are all upper level and nice. Other side can be closer to parking lot on the corner, so higher better.

Lower right graphic within this graphic shows rooms.

I’d do OV.

Two entry doors mean there is an interior door between the 1 bedroom side and the studio side. If your going with other adults it nice to be able to close that door. If you're there with kids then I wouldn't want a door between unit and the second bedroom.

We’ve gone for the OV twice and could barely see the ocean unless you leaned over the railing. Pretty much parking lot view in the yellow colored section.

Oooo. Not too good for OV. We have only stayed in the old section and get the Ocean Front. I know the villas are remodeled hotel rooms, but they work for us.

Yes! I own a 3 br. Ocean view in the Napili building and the view, in my opinion, is definitely worth 900 more points. I have never stayed in the garden view but if you go to Hawaii and you have the points go for the view.

This is the view from our Lahaina Villas Mountain View/garden view last month from the 5th floor. I’m surprised they don’t classify these as ocean view
