4.0 out of 5 stars Handy and helpful July 24 2008
By Natasha Stryker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a great lil guide to throw in your bag. The foldout map was AWESOME and worth the purchase. We used this item daily on our 2 week honeymoon. This book and the 50 Thrifty Maui Restaurants were such a great resource; one to get you around, the other to get you well fed. I highly recommend both since everytime we used them we had a better time for it :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Like It, But Use Other Books to Supplement Feb. 10 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought Frommer's "Maui Day by Day" because I really liked their "San Francisco Day by Day". I also have "Maui Revealed" by Andrew Doughty and "Driving and Discovering Hawaii: Maui and Molokai" by Richard Sullivan. Because of the latter two books, I discovered that Frommer's "Maui Day by Day"'s description of the Road to Hana does not include a big chunk of waterfall stops and swimming stops. A BIG CHUNK...like, the majority of waterfall stops. I also did not find the pull out map to be helpful at all, except for very basic orientation of where you might be on the island as a whole. The chapter maps are better, but the maps in "Driving and Discovering Hawaii: Maui and Molokai" are even better. "Maui Day by Day" also describes the Seven Sacred Pools by saying that it's an HOUR hike uphill to the author's favorite falls, Waimoku Falls...but "Maui Day by Day" says the Seven Sacred Pools are reached by a loop trail that is 1/2 mile. The Driving Maui book reveals that Waimoku Falls is a 4 mile, 2 hour hike ONE WAY; the "Seven Sacred Pools" that most people are looking for are right there on the 1/2 mile loop. "Day by Day" does not even mention that. ("Seven Pools" is a misnomer...it's a series of many falls in that area.)

I still plan on using "Day by Day" as a small guidebook that will fit in my purse, but will DEFINITELY be using the other two books for detailed information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Maui Reference April 6 2009
By C. Spinelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having never been to Maui, I grabbed this book to gain some insight into the places I needed to see and things I needed to do while on vacation. The book is fantastic, notes the best "hole in the wall" cafes and restaurants, lists the GREAT farmers markets and fruit stands along your route, and even breaks down the things you can do/see if you're on the island for 3-days, 4-days, 5-days, etc. That way, you maximize your time on the island, without running around "wasting" time on not-so-exciting activities (not that not-so-exciting activities can even be considered a "waste" while on a beautiful tropical island, but you know what I mean!)

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Only Bring One April 29 2008
By 3AM Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Maui Day by Day is the one guide you should put in your travel bag while in Maui. It has a great map along with all the information you could possibly want as you spend your time vacationing. There is no need to wade thru pages as it is well indexed. Time in paradice is short no need to spend all your time reading about it....BE THERE!
