I went to Maui for my sister's wedding a few years ago. It was "okay", and I don't regret getting to go and see another part of the world, but it was clearly a dolled-up part of Hawai'i put on for tourists.

There really is no "ethical" way to consume a product (in this case, a service) under capitalistic conditions.

As you can help it, though, be courteous and considerate to hospitality staff, don't make fusses over shit that doesn't matter (life's too short to get angry over little things), and show some humanity. Talk to them, ask them how their day is going. Commiserate with them.
