Aloha and thank you for the great review of the 5 Palms Restaurant. We are fortunate to have a good partner that adds quality to our property. I will print and give this to the restaurants management as we are separate companies under the same umbrella. More

Everything you expect and more. Stunning views of the ocean, beach and sunset from the room and lanai, super comfortable bed and lovely clean spacious room. Staff are friendly and very efficient. We stayed for 8 wonderful days. We loved all the small touches that made this hotel special - the beautiful welcome, the comfy pool chairs and towels, watermelon... More

I have stayed at Mana Kai every year for the last 15 years. Looking forward to a return in 2 weeks. Best beach in Maui w/great snorkeling reef, morning walk options are fabulous (down beach to Wailea boardwalk or out front of the hotel with marked trails), excellent food in hotel and short walk away at Kihei, shopping in Wailea...

Our unit had an outstanding view of the pool and beach. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Employees were all very helpful - especially the front desk. Well stocked store on the premises and a rental shop. Also a restaurant -- limited dinner entrees but lots of sushi selections.

After spending a couple of days driving the Hana Highway during a tropical storm, we were exhausted and looking for low key accommodation where we could just relax and do nothing. We wanted to avoid a generic beach full of high rise hotels and wanted a relaxed Maui experience. As we drove into Kihei, we knew we had found the... More

For several years we have stayed at another hotel close by and wondered if the Mana Kai would be a good option. When we got a really good package, we took it and have NO regrets! Our hotel room did not have an ocean view, and the room was not large. However, the bathroom was a nice size, the microwave... More

Aloha and thank you for taking your time to write this review. Unfortunately an ice machine is not a decision we as a rental company can make. I will add your feedback to the governing body here that makes that decision. Keep watching for those specials as we would love to have you back as our return guest. More

We recently returned from our third stay at the Mana Kai Maui. The location right on a beautiful beach is amazing. We have stayed at several places on Maui and the Big Island, including one week during this trip on the Big Island's Kohala Coast. We haven't found a hotel or a condo with a better beach. And you can... More

Beautiful. Well done. Just the right ambiance without it being over the top. Felt at home. Will b back soon! Would definitely recommend to all that I know!!!!! After much research I kept landing on this spot. Keawakapu has to be the best beach by far, bar none.

Mahalo for your great review. The room your stayed in is one of the most requested rooms we have and now you can see why. Although the hotel type room provides affordability for a property right on the beach, the condo's are more spacious and provide the million dollar view. We look forward to your next visit with us.
