We stayed at the Mana Kai in May, and it was the best place we could have stayed at. We stayed in one of the condos which offers a full kitchen, a sizeable balcony (where we at breakfast/lunch almost every day), and a beautiful view of the ocean and the beach (although, I think every suite has a great view)....

This was our first time to Maui and we couldn't have picked a better location. We were shocked to find that the hotel was even better than we imagined and the views were amazing. Simply a wonderful place and very well maintained. We stayed in #209A and the unit right above us was being renovated and it was no big... More

This is my second time staying here in the past 6 months. I was surprised to find a brand new remodeled condo. It is beautiful! Love the ocean view. The room is spacious with a large lanai. Great restaurant at the edge of the beach as well.

We have stayed here 18+ times in the last 25 years. In those early days the 2 bed, 2 bath condo cost $195/night, included a rental car and free breakfast. Our cost this year, 3 weeks ago, was $360/night for a 1 bed, 1 bath, no car or breakfast. Times have changed, so have the costs, but it is still... More

Aloha, thank you for your loyalty and all the return visits. As you know, the units closest to the ocean (usually 01 through 05 stacks) are under our premium category. All of our units including all the way down to the 15 stack have good ocean view. Unfortunately prices do increase every year as does the cost of operations. The... More

Our room seemed to have been recently renovated. In fact much of the hotel seemed to be freshly renovated or undergoing renovations. The construction noise would be my only complaint with our stay, the staff was very friendly and the place was clean. I would highly recommend the Mana Kai.

Aloha, Thank you for taking your time to write a review. It's unfortunate that we had renovation construction noise during your stay, but in order for guests to return, renovations are a necessary part of keeping a 41 year old building operating and looking fresh. We look forward to your next visit with us. More

Just stayed at the Mana Kai in Maui. The resort is immaculate. It was truly one of the best vacations we have ever had. We booked directly with the owner, great condo. The view is out of this world. The restaurant has the best happy hour every day and the deli was very convenient. We will definitely go back again... More

Mahalo for your review as it helps all the rental programs and the property. I hope the owner of the unit you rented from sees your comments, as this unit is not in our rental program. We are the on-site rental program that has opened a TripAdvisor account and AAA 3-diamond units. More

Loved staying here! Staff were lovely. Great position right on the beach. Best views are probably in units numbered 1 - about 10 or 12. We were in unit 15 on 5th floor(i.e. right at the end away from the beach) still had a lovely view of beach and out to Molokini but couldn't see down the beach. Unit had... More

Our stay began on a sour note. Absolutely nothing to do with Mana Kai Maui. We've been scammed by a fraudulous rental agency. When we checked in we found out that the room was never reserved. Never trust a prepaid rental location on craiglist, we've learned it the hard way! They got me like a little boy. Anyhow, after the... More
