So glad we decided to keep our current trip plans. I did struggle beforehand due to the covid concerns and some reviews indicating the island was overwhelmed with tourism and unwelcoming locals. On Maui now and thoroughly enjoying. We are in Kaanapali and it is not overcrowded. All hotel and restaurant workers are very gracious and welcoming- very happy for the tourism. The only issue is to be sure to book way ahead at some of your favorite restaurants and for any tour activity due to 50% capacity. I was told our hotel (Hyatt Regency) will only be at 50-60 percent capacity next week - so does not seem outrageously busy or any worse than any of my prior visits. Covid protocols strictly enforced everywhere ( more strict than my home state) but has not taken away from the vacation vibe- just need to remember our mask while at indoor public areas. Proof of Vaccination cards being requested for any indoor dining but most all restaurants have plenty of outdoor tables.
