I already have bought the app prior to buying the book - so telling me not to worry I can buy or download the app to get the hotel reviews is irritating. The description of the book says it has hotels reviews. That is very misleading as it doesn't. And the hotel reviews on the website/app have not been updated for a very long time. I bought the book based on the description hoping that they had finally updated the hotel reviews. But they hadn't.
I used to love these guidebooks but I think that the authors are now just monetizing their early investments in writing them rather investing in actually updating them so I will steer clear from now on.
The best advice the book gave was to keep driving past the Seven Sacred Pools and loop around the backside of Haleakala, essentially circumnavigating the eastern half of Maui. A lot of cars turn around after the pools and double back through the windy jungle road you just spent hours driving—it's a beautiful drive, but I wouldn't want to do it twice in one day. Just keep driving—even when the road turns to dirt and gets bumpy—and you'll be rewarded by a rugged, mountainous landscape to your right that sweeps down dramatically toward the ocean to your left. You will be literally one of like 3 cars that continue on, so it feels like a private adventure after the packed, touristy Road to Hana. The land is dry here—I think the mountain produces a bit of a rain shadow—and the gorges are wreathed with clouds. It's so cool driving from the jungle into rolling rangeland. I cannot recommend it enough. Keep in mind, we rented a Jeep.
The rest of the guidebook's excellent too lol
