We stayed for 7 nights back in March 2014 at the Sands of Kahana in a timeshare 2 bedroom condo. We had a good view of ocean and the mountain. Would have love to had a better view of it but that was still good. The suite was big enough for 4 adults, had 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, dining table,... More

Stayed as a timeshare exchange in one bedroom suite. Full kitchen, separate bedroom and nice deck. Nice beach, but not Kaanapali. Try and get ocean view room, otherwise you are looking at backside of property or into condos next door. Great koi pond with very big koi fish, quite nice to look at. They have exercise rooms and tennis courts... More

We sayed at Sands of Kahana over spring break and we were very disappointed to walk in and it was nothing like the pictures! The kitchen was old, with tattered cupboards, dirty shelves and limited kitchen utensils. The dishwasher was so loud you could hardly have a conversation when it was turned on. The linens were worn and tattered. We... More

We were given perhaps the worst unit on the property #113 at the Sands of Kahana. The elevator did not work and there was standing water all around courtyard of the building. When we walked in there was a terrible stale odor that indicated nothing had been deep cleaned for ages. The unit looked directly out over the parking lot... More

Great resort to base your trip on Maui. Has everything you might want, great staff, wonderful beach, convenient to all of Maui. We had a front row seat to a lot of whale activity. If you want a beach front resort this is the place to stay.

We are in Condo #354, and our view is awesome. We've seen whales every day, and a rainbow this morning. Jose in the restaurant is a delight, and the rest of the staff was friendly too. The condo is very roomy, 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Is this a brand spanking new property? No, but if you want to be right... More

Daily humpback whale sightings make our ocean views even more breathtaking, and the presence of a morning rainbow puts a ribbon on the entire package. We certainly appreciate your complimentary remarks and are thrilled you’ll be returning. Thanks again! More

We are sorry you were not satisfied with your visit. We do our very best to fulfill every room request, but as an ocean resort, you can imagine that nearly every request we receive is for an ocean view. This is why we sell rooms based on room size and not on the view. As much as we would like... More

Thank you for visiting Sands of Kahana. We are sorry you were subjected to such a poorly maintained unit. Your particular condominium is property managed for a private owner by another company, which makes those parties solely responsible for its care and maintenance. We recommend booking your stay directly through us and staying in one of our immaculately kept units.... More
