We were astonished at the high quality of this small condo property. Yes, there is no AC, but we managed well with ceiling fans and open windows during a very hot week. The only negative about open windows is noise from the pool, but it never lasted too long. Our unit on the third floor was recently renovated, so everything... More

Our family recently spent a week at the Hono Koa Vacation Club in Lahaina, HI. The vacation club is tucked away in a nice little community with its own private beach access. The units are in transition for upgrading. Most of the furniture is from the 1980s but it is clear that management is upgrading when possible. For example each... More

Hono Koa is a quaint property which needs updating. No air conditioning is available and they still use bedspreads on their beds. We had to check in after 5pm due to our flight arriving late and we had to call another resort who gave us an access code to open up a box to get our room keys (front desk... More

We booked this resort as a result of a timeshare exchange. I must say my family and I were beyond disappointed... our whole vacation was ruined. There were many flaws. If you are looking for a place of comfort and a place that makes you smile when you arrive, delete this one from your list of possibilities. These are just... More

We regret to learn of your experience and extend our sincerest apologies for the housekeeping and maintenance challenges. The examples you cite are not typical, and we are sorry the room was ever released to you in such condition. Obviously it was neither properly cleaned nor inspected to our standards. Since your departure the sofa mattress has been replaced and... More

We booked the Hono Koa through our vacation club for the first week in May. We had just come from a fabulous week on the Big Island. We new the Hono Koa was a small resort with not a lot of amenities, but we love the peace and quiet and hassle free access. The Hono Koa met these expectations. It... More

This is a delightful resort! It's smaller than those mega resorts & perfect for a relaxing, quiet vacation. The pool was wonderful, the deck is great as you can watch turtles swimming close by & whales jumping. Condo units are spacious & clean, nice updated kitchen, wonderful & friendly staff, excellent location. I'd stay there again any day as it... More

Let me start by saying my family loves smaller resorts. This is a small 28 unit resort, not many activities, but we don't participate in those any way! We LOVED this place. Our condo had a beautiful ocean view (302) and a great view of the pool. We saw sea turtles and whales all while having dinner on our lanai!... More
