We rented the lock off hotel type room and our friends rented the front with the Lanai and kitchen. Absolutely beautiful. We love the location, right on the beach. Everything you want right there. A store, the Five Palms Restaurant, equipment rental. The beds were the most comfortable, flat screen tv and free wifi.

Mahalo for your review. Renting the entire two bedroom with friends is a nice way to get the best of both worlds. The only problem you have is flipping a coin to see who gets to sleep in the condo side facing the ocean, but it appears you worked things out. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Happy... More

We stayed in Room 609C, which could use a bit of updating, but any issues we had were promptly dealt with by AA Oceanfront rental company. We have stayed here many times over the past several years.Overall we fully enjoyed our stay.

We rented a condo for a week through VRBO. The unit was very nicely updaTed and very comgortable.The best part is the view from your large balcony and the great beach right below. The lobby is pretty and the pool very nice. They have a store if you forget anything, but is a little expensive. We didn't eat at the... More

We flew to Maui in Sept for a couple of days and stood in the Mana Kai.The Mana Kai is between Kihei and Waimea. It is about 20 minutes far from the airport Kahului by car.

The rooms that face the water are the best. Fully equipped with the the basics you need to cook for a family or friends. The room service people are courteous and efficient. The grounds and beach are kept clean and safe.

We needed a place to stay for one night until the condo we rented was available. The price was right here, and it's right on the beach! We got there late at night and we had to call the person in charge who gave is a code to a lockbox for our key. Pretty easy and there's plenty of free... More

Big condo hotel in busy Kihei, Maui. It has eight floors and lots of rooms so lots of people. There is a bar, a restaurant, little grocery store, activities bar, and a pool. The best part... amazing beach. The location, although busy, is wonderful. The beach walk goes on for two hours before you hit a road. Good snorkeling and... More

Mahalo for your excellent review. We not that large as there are 98 two bedroom units, of which our company manages 46 units. Depending the time of the season, we can be busy, but not like the Super Hotel Resorts. Being located on one of the best beaches on Maui has it's perks like at the beginning of Wailea. Thank...

The room is a little bit small, rooms are closed to each other so sometimes I can hear people talking in another room. Free parking. wifi is slow. As many review mentioned, the hotel is right on the beach. The beach is larger and nicer than the resort I stayed at Lahaina. Other than beach or water related activities, this... More

Mahalo for your review. Yes, our hotel type rooms are small, only 210 sf, but the majority of visitors spend their time outdoors exploring or getting experiencing Hawaiian Culture events. So, to many they just need a clean, affordable place to sleep, and as you say we do have location times ten. We will see you and your family next... More
