We traded our timeshare week through Interval International to stay at the Sands of Kahana. The resort is right on the ocean and has a private beach, where we could swim and snorkel. It also has an adult pool, a children's pool, and a sports bar clubhouse between them. We were on the fifth floor and had a wonderful view... More

Thank you for your visit and feedback. We are disappointed all the benefits you outlined in your nice review aren’t enough to entice you to return. A lack of central air conditioning is not exclusive to Sands of Kahana. Many resorts on Maui do not have artificial air but instead rely on the temperate climate to cool things off. We... More

The 2 bedroom was a comfy and spacious place to stay with family. Husband and I came with our two daughters and their husbands. There were 2 large bathrooms, 2 double beds in the 2nd bedroom and also a fold out queen sofa in the living room.There are also patios off both bedrooms. With 6 adults, we did not feel... More

A pleasant surprise, the setting is beautiful and the staff from the concierge to the housekeepers were friendly and helpful. We stayed in s two bedroom unit ocean side and the view was fantastic. The unit was very nice and spacious. Definitely go for ocean side or pool side units as they are quieter.

We enjoyed our stay here, but glad we were moving on to a new location after 5 days. The beachfront hotel is typical and we were pleased that we had an oceanview room. Beach access was convenient and the pool area was nice, although they could use some new lounge chairs. The bedroom faced the atrium, which, as a result... More

This was a dream come true!! Sands of Kahana is beautiful! Friendly staff! All front desk. Concierge were very helpful. Some say the decor was out dated, for me it was exactly what I hoped a place in Hawaii would look like. Huge 2 bedroom unit. Amazing ocean view. I'll be back! I promise.

We stayed here for 10 days in two different units. The first one was very nice - a corner unit. The second one was in a noisy area. The condos were well equipped with everything that you need. The beach area is beautiful and that was our favorite place. Nice to have the restaurant and other services close by. We... More

Thank you for your visit and feedback. As you might expect, we receive numerous advance requests for our breathtaking ocean views and can fulfill only so many. As a result, we do not guarantee specific room types or locations. Guest units are assigned at check-in. We are pleased our spacious condo-style suites made a favorable impression, however, and hope you... More

This place is wonderful! This is our third time staying here and we won't hesitate to keep coming back. We stayed in building 3 and had the best view. We've stayed in other buildings before, but building 3 is the best as far as view goes. The unit is older but is very well maintained. The furniture is clean, the... More

We were so pleased with the time we spent here on our recent trip to Maui. We only needed one repair (a lamp) and it was done within an hour of our request. The condo was large, well-equipped, comfortable, and clean. It's in a great location and everyone there was wonderful.

We loved the sandy beach of this resort for our family vacation. We rented a penthouse unit with spectacular ocean view with tons of room for 2 families. The price for the size, view and beachfront was by far the best value in Maui North. The restaurant bar is good with a nice adult and kids pool on either side... More
