We were so pleasantly surprised at how wonderful everything was at the Mana Kai. The location is perfect, with a very nice beach right outside our window. The grounds are kept perfectly clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and for the money it was the best bet around. The only thing that could be improved would be the... More

We just returned from a family reunion in Maui where 36 of our family members stayed at the Mana Kai Maui Resort. From the ocean views from our rooms, to the excellent service provided by Artis and the other staff, to the use of the BBQs and lawn area for all of us to eat, to the very reasonable prices......

We stayed in one of the Oceanside condos and had a great time. They have just about everything that you could need. They have a rental place for all types of activities from biking to boogie boards. A small store that offers all types of refreshments and items you forgot to bring. There are a couple of restaurants on or... More

Mahalo for a great review. Other than the restaurant and Deli/General Store on site, there are some very good restaurants within a mile north or south of the property. Your description of our property and amenities was spot on. We'll see you next year if not sooner. Aloha More

Great location - right on the beach & the ocean view rooms have a great uninterrupted view of the beach. Staff are friendly & the place has a convenient on site store stocked with lots of basics. The restaurant has top quality food & excellent service. The entire place feels laid back & yet is clean & fresh.

Great condo or hotel-style rooms on the beach at great price. Walk through the foyer with views of the beach. Less popular area of Maui so not as crowded. Great restaurant independently-operatred. These are condos with A & B sides. The larger A unit includes a kitchen, the smaller B unit is a hotel room. Direct beach access.

This hotel was a good value for an on the beach location. Many hotels in Maui are across the street from the beach. It is on the south side of the island and is more convenient for visiting major attractions than West Maui hotels. The waves aren't as wild as elsewhere on the island. The beach facing rooms are condos... More

Mahalo for taking the time to write a good review. It was accurate and to the point. Although hotel type rooms do not face the ocean, you can get ocean views on the higher floors and closer to the ocean, rooms ending from 01 to 06. We are pleased we met your expectations and look forward to your next visit... More

We stayed here with the family. Room and location are great except for the fact that the main room does not have A/C. We stayed in 814A/B. The "b" portion has a/c but "a"does not and it is miserably hot at night. We left doors open all night for some relief and the kids ended up with mosquito bites all... More

Thank you for writing this review. We would like to welcome you back for another visit. Over 94% of the rooms we rent have air conditioning throughout the two bedrooms. Only three of our rooms are not fully air conditioned. Request a room with full air conditioning on your next visit. I am certain we can accommodate this. For now,... More

This property has fabulous views and a warm and caring staff. The units are comfortable, but not luxurious. Many of the units have old and tired furniture. We have been coming to the Mana Kai for 24 years. This property used to be the best value on the island. The prices just keep going up without any visual improvements to... More

Stayed here at the Mana Kai for a little over 3 weeks! What a dreamboat vacation. I rented directly from VRBO(vacation rentals by owner).The condo is wonderfully outfitted with the best view of the ocean.
