Fish tacos! Well prepared, delicious. The waiter was excellent, willing to adjust the menu. Hula pie, a must on any visit. This is a great restaurant. Location...on the beach. Go at sunset. Good service. It's not cheap but you won't go wrong on this place. We will be back.

My wife and I stayed at Makani Sands in a three-bedroom apartment with our two daughters, one of our daughter's husband and our grand daughter in October this year. One of our daughter's had booked the apartment well in advance of our arrival so the cost of our five-night stay was reasonable. The apartment block is right on the ocean... More

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Makani Sands #203 for a 5 night vacation in November. The complex is older and not in one of the main resort areas, but it’s a great option for an affordable stay with direct ocean front view and a small sandy beach for easy water entry. The unit itself is very... More

The views from 202 & seeing sea turtles up close on the beach were highlights of this trip to Maui. The weather was unusually hot and humid, with no trade winds, which made this business trip that required much outdoor walking challenging and physically demanding. Thankful for Makani Sands as a little oasis of relaxation and enjoyment. The decor was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week. It's in a great location. Close to everything and a little farmers and coffee shop within walking distance. We had unit 208 which had an updated kitchen but not updated bathroom. Which means the bathroom is quite dated. Each unit is privately owned so you can't really go by the pictures.... More

We stayed at Makani Sands #309 for 8 nights. We were a group of 8 (max occupancy), but it did not feel crowded. Our kids chose to sleep on the floor (carpeted--kind of rare in a tropical location, but welcome), so we did not utilize the pullout sofa. Had we done so, there would have been enough beds for all.... More

We stayed at Makani Sands for two weeks in March. Located in Honokawai, Makani Sands is a small condo with around 30 units. All the units are owned and it is not part of a timeshare. The units are spacious, clean and all oceanfront. Each unit has washer, dryer, dishwashers which are great. As it is an older building, it... More
