Question of the Day: Would You Consider This a Partial Ocean View?

I’m at the Andaz Maui right now with my wife celebrating our second first anniversary trip (that’s not confusing at all) and I used points + cash combined with a diamond suite upgrade for our stay. We stayed here last year on our second honeymoon trip and used the same points + cash combined with a diamond suite upgrade. Last year, we got room 539 which had a great, almost full view of the ocean. This year, we got room 138 and this ocean view. 

 

Last year, not from our room but same sightline

 
 

This year…


As you can see, just a little bit different. I have my own theories on how we got the worse suite in the resort (I’ll explain in a different post) but I did mention my disappointment to the hotel and their response was they could move me to a normal room with a better ocean view or stay in my suite.
We chose to stay in the suite but to all of you, would you consider this an acceptable partial ocean view? Would you have switched to a normal room with a better view?

There is a large group here from Stratasys so all other suites are booked. Can't say I'm surprised to get this room but it does a leave a sour taste in my mouth. Outside of this, our stay has been great thus far. https://pointscentric.com/2015/04/28/…al-ocean-view/ […]

  2. Tough break with the view, but in the grand scheme of things it’s hard to be too mad being that you are at one of the nicest hotels on Maui. We throughly enjoyed our stay there last September and are planning another trip there next spring.
