Stayed at the Honua Kai for a week in May 2015. We were a group of 2 adult couples. As a lot of the other reviews have said there are a lot of kids around the pools. This didn't bother us as we didn't come to Maui for the pools. The beach was within a couple minute walk, and they... More

In planning our four-generation vacation, my family voted to return to the specific unit at this resort that we had rented through Kaanapali Beach Rentals a couple of years ago. We like renting through KBR because you can pick specific unit(s) which are privately owned and managed by KBR. Hokulani 101 is a large (3 BR/3 BA) and lovely beach... More

Honua Kai was a very pleasant staff. It lies in the Kannapali beach area. Beach is very accessible. Early morning beach and taking a dip in Pacific or watching the sunset everyday in your stay is truly magical. Suites are very nice with very modern kitchen. Great for families. Theme pools are great for kids. It is a very short... More

I've reviewed in honua Kai five stars for 5 years. I've brought business here and referred to so many friends family and complete strangers. When my family and I booked our trip the construction was not disclosed to us. The mail pool is shut down again (happened two years ago too) due to tile repair. The look on my sons... More

I stayed at this hotel for four nights in May 2015. We had a 2-bedroom suite on the 7th floor. It was exceptional! The hotel itself is very large and very well kept. The room was gorgeous, immaculately cleaned, ocean front views, stainless steel appliances., awesome water pressure…in one word luxury! The staff was amazing, always warm and helpful and... More

My parents were coming with us on their first trip to Hawaii so we wanted it to be memorable. We got a partial ocean-view room with two bedrooms so we could all be together. It was perfect. The rooms are basically the same size so it's like having two masters. The only difference is that one of the bedroom's baths... More

Stayed at this resort 7 nights in May 2015 with 2 of my best friends! We were all absolutely blown away at everything about this resort! The staff, grounds, rooms, amenities, location, everything about it was perfect. The rooms were always awesome to come back to! The pools and spas on location were so much fun. Dukes food and service... More

Went with a 3.5 year old, and had a great time. The pools are well organized, where some are for adults only, some are for everyone, and some are clearly specifically for kids. Good food and drinks available poolside and at Duke's restaurant. Beautiful trails to walk or run on along the beach. Great staff.

The grounds, the lobby, the pools....they were all so beautiful. The room was really large with nice furnishings. The coffee bar was good in the morning. Duke's was great for afternoon and evening. So why did I rate this hotel only average? The main reason was the lack of warmth I got from the staff. There were definitely bright spots,... More

Maui - beautiful ocean, white sandy beaches, palm trees and sunsets that will knock your socks off. I think I could sleep in a tent on the beach here and be happy, but I won't, because I can stay here. Honua Kai Resort is top notch. The grounds were breathtaking (lush gardens, multiple pools with Jacuzzi tubs and perfect beachfront).... More
