Spent a week there and it was awesome. The place had everything one could want. Comfy bed, awesome towels, and the little things like flashlights, lawn chairs, beach mats, we wanted for nothing. And the view is beyond good. Never many people out and about. pool never crowded, great landscaping. I can't think of anything that was not great about... More

We here for 6 nights.. The location is excellent and the resort is pretty quiet.. Most of the units were empty. The unit we stayed in was very plain but it did the job. We stayed in an ocean front condo where we could hear the waves all day and night! Great sound to fall asleep too.. we also heard... More

My husband and I recently stayed in unit #5 at the Kaapa Sands. The location was beautiful, but the accommodations needed some work. The bed was very uncomfortable, it was worn out and actually coming apart underneath. We had a difficult time sleeping at night, the room was not dark enough for us. The curtains were shear and did not... More

Before booking this place, I read every review I could find on this. There were several pictures and common opinions, so I kind of knew what to expect. Top unit, ocean view, friendly staff, Turtles on the right, sound of the waves, central location, etc. Most all of the people were right on, this place is awesome. You can't beat... More

This was the perfect style of accommodation for us. Great location. Recommend booking a beach facing unit as the ocean is right at your door step and it is so pleasant to sit on the lanai with a morning coffee or a beverage in the evening. We stayed in Unit #10 and once we figued out that the bed folded... More

My family stayed in 4 rooms at the Kapaa Sands and had an amazing time. The beach was perfect for strolling, snorkeling, and strong swimmers. My husband and I swam every morning while my parents looked for shells and my siblings snorkeled. We had family breakfasts and enjoyed our rooms immensely.

Five of us stayed here in February and we loved it. The condos were well furnished and comfortable, and the location right on the coast was great. It was easy to walk to nearby bakeries and restaurants. The center of town and large grocery stores are only a few minutes' drive. The only negative was that there were absolutely no... More

I recently stayed in Unit 14 - oceanfront studio - and they weren't kidding. Ocean was 30 steps from my front door. Went to sleep listening to the waves and the ocean breezes gently blowing in the window. Staff is great - grounds are lush and tropical. It is a quiet little place and was talking to some of the...
