This is my 2nd visit and again had a wonderful stay. You can overcome the lack of air conditioning by buying a fan at the Big K just outside the airport. Stayed in the penthouse ocean view and the view was incredible. Very little delay with the elevators this time For those that are divers I recommend diving at Malay... More

We are currently here at the Sands, checked in today. We were told at check in that we were being given an "upgraded" room. I have stayed in some bad places, and sadly my dad wasted his points letting us come here for our anniversary. We were told that condo we are in is much better than the one booked... More

Thank you for your exchange. We are disappointed we did not meet your expectations. Our resort frequently receives high marks on RCI surveys from satisfied exchange guests. We are sorry your visit did not reflect the experience of many others. We also apologize for the housekeeping issues, which fall below our standard for cleanliness, and for the dryer difficulty.

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in Hawaii. We stayed our first week at the Sands of Kahana in Maui and unfortunately while we fell in love with Maui, the same cannot be said for this resort. I don't like to write negative reviews, but I felt like others should be well informed before staying here. POSITIVES:... More

We own at Sands of Kahana and have stayed about 4 times. Our last stay was December 2013, it was wonderful! We had a beautiful ocean front view unit! Even though the units don't have air-conditioning, Kahana gets the wonderful trade winds so it never seems to be an issue. When it is really hot in Lahaina you can't wait... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Sands of Kahana. Shout out to Brad who organized our vacation in no time flat. The grounds and beach area were great. We did not have an ocean view but did not struggle with the lack of air conditioning or any noise. My only "issue" is the units are old. The wood finishing... More

It's odd when you come to expect certain things at a property like this. The location is awesome, with a little pool adjacent to the beach. Great snorkeling and beach which is not crowded at all. It seems this property is a bit dated and needs remodeling. Generous sized rooms without AC. Warning here... If the scoters and the loud... More
