I got a package deal and the Mana-Kai Maui was the hotel they gave me. I was on the 3rd floor in the hotel section. When I looked out my window I could see the ocean. The room I stayed in overlooked a parking lot but it did not bug me because I wasn't indoors alot anyways. It was clean... More

We've stayed at the Mana Kai on three occasions, the most recently last August. The facility was undergoing a remodel which did not interfere with our stay at all (the top floor where we stayed had already been refurbished). We booked our two room suite through AA Oceanfront Condominums in Kihei, having used them without problem for three prior visits... More

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Mana Kai. This was our second visit, the first in Dec. 05. We absolutely love this place! We stayed in unit 606, a two bedroom condo which we booked directly with the owner. Everything was perfect. The hotel, pool and grounds are kept spotless. The beach outside your door... More

We stayed at the Mana Kai for a week (09-05 to 09-11). The unit was fantastic! Had everything we could want for a stay at the beach. When we got off the plane, we stopped at CostCo and loaded up with food and drinks. Since there is a full kitchen in this unit, it made life soo simple! This unit... More

We just returned from Maui the last day of July 2006. We stayed at the Mana Kai, 6th floor, from a direct VRBO owner. The rental part went fine, pick up the keys from the property mgr., etc. MAID service is suppose to be available if you stay longer than 7 -days, but we never received any even after making... More

Mauiohmaui, Unit owner at Mana Kai Maui, responded to this review

I appreciate your observations. As an owner of a Mana Kai I like to see the "down side" from a guest's view. Please try the Mana Kai again, as steps are being taken to correct the problem. Your review, an others, are taken seriously by the owners. And we DO monitor TripAdvisor as a source.Thank you! More

My wife and another couple stayed here in early July for four nights. Upon arrival, we were impressed with the lobby, but extremely disappointed with the room. Our room was on the 3rd floor. While it had a great/large lanai with an excellent ocean view, there was much to be desired. The room itself felt very old and dirty. The... More

We stayed at the Mana Kai for a week in June and really enjoyed our stay there. The location was truly the best. Every morning we walked the beach toward the fancy resorts of Wailea. Once you get to the resorts you can continue to walk along a boardwalk for another mile or so. The condo itself is currently under... More

We just returned from 5 days at the Mana Kai and were very pleased. Not sure what other reviewers were taking about as far as the desk staff. Everyone we talked to was both helpfull and very nice.

The Mana Kai Maui was totally above and beyond my expectations. Before arriving, I was a bit skeptical as other reviewers seemed to either love or hate this place. After spending a week here, I can see the source of some of the confusion. If you want to love your stay, splurge for the Deluxe Oceanview 1 or 2 Bedroom... More
