We are currently staying at the The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas, an incredible beachside resort on Maui (we love it by the way).
We took part in a promotional offer sent to my wife (an SPG credit card holder) for $798 that included:
- 6 days’ and 5 nights’ accommodations at The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas
- $75 resort certificate that can be used toward dining, shopping or spa services within the resort
- $185 AVIS Rental Car Certificate
This has been a great value, the hotel room we are staying in (island studio) does not have a view of the ocean but I do not believe in paying extra for views (if I get this on upgrade it is OK). The room is big enough for my wife, daughter and I and has adequate cooking facilities.
We took an optional
90-minute 120-minute presentation (for an extra 7,500 Starpoints) that showed the benefits of Starwood ownership – sharing the other resorts and villas they have and the benefits of villa ownership.
After we declined we were offered another package:
7 nights and 8 days at the The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas and 50,000 Starpoints for $400 Deposit and 12 payments interest free of $199.
The catch is that we need to use the package within 2 years and we can’t book the last 10 days of the year.
The cost is $2788!
Should I pull the trigger?
