We loved the mana kai!!! From our 7th floor condo we had a great view of the beach below. The location of this condo cannot be beat. It is right on one of the best beaches in south maui and only minutes drive from a dozen others. The sound of the waves below were great to go to sleep to.... More

Our first trip to Maui, we did not want come home. The mens restroom was under construction but I guees it needed fixed. We enjoyed our room, the view was the best and listening to the waves was enjoyable. The food at The Five Palms was good, high price though. The pool was perfect and the beach. Our maid service...

Do not I repeat do not stay here Problems- the room itself is okay - nothing more. Very small - we had a 2 bdrm lock off. The one bedroom portion is NOT a one bedroom it is a studio with a sitting area and kitchen. The lanai is tiny. The staff - as others have mentioned are incredibly rude... More

We really enjoyed Mana Kai. We stayed on a last minute whim due to the fact that the other place we were going to stay was having work done to the property which they did not tell us about---so we switched and we are thankful that we did! Mana Kai, while it is a high-rise--8 floors--it is situated perfectly on... More

After 21 years of marriage my husband and I just wanted to have a mellow anniversary vacation. Room 809A at the Mana Kai did not disappoint. It is located on the last floor of the building and has a view that does not disappoint. We slept with the lanai doors open and heard the ocean waves all night long. An... More

We loved this place! It's goregously remodeling and clean. The beach was good snorkeling, lots of soft sand. The restaurant was fantastic! The sundries/deli shop was well stocked but supremely overpriced. Tracey, the concierge, was friendly and helpful. The cost of the activities, though supposedly discounted, is about average. The pool was clean and pretty. The shower was nice to... More

My husband and I stayed at the Mana Kai in November of 2008 for 10 nights. I am just posting this now b/c I just began using trip advisor recently for vacation research and felt the Mana Kai deserved a review. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we were there in celebration of our 10 year anniversary. I... More

Although we stayed in the hotel room, we had a wonderful time, and have reserved for next February, but in the condo. Get the condo, if you can. We found the location to be great, the beach to be great, the accessibility to restaurants and shopping to be great, and on and on.

My husband and I just returned from our 3rd trip to Maui. This trip was impromptu and I didn't do my research. We booked just the hotel unit which is the A unit part of a condo. The room is very small. It has one desk, bed, 2 chairs, 2 nightstands and bathroom. I expected a parking lot view but... More
