I had the most wonderful time at the Sands of Kahana nice pool and Jacuzzi. They also have a restaurant bar on the premises and it's very close to Lahaina and other places on the main road. Great location close to many nice beaches and other attractions

I was in a one bedroom unit that was above the trash and entry to the parking lot. I was awoken by 6:30 every morning with trash noise and voices. Before arriving I had made several calls to request a quiet area and that was the best they could do! They refused to make any changes because all the one... More

We just got back from spending a week in Maui. This was our first visit. As well, it was our first time renting a timeshare. We travelled as a family of 4 and got a 2 bedroom suite. Without question, this is the largest 2 bedroom we have ever booked. It was clean and nicely equipped. The staff were uniformly... More

The ocean view from the 7th floor of bldg 3 and bldg 4 (we had to book 2 blocks of time) were both spectacular! Suites are huge with loft master suites and patio master suites. I recommend you stay here when you come to Maui! Thanks for the wonderful place to crash Sands of Kahana!

We stayed on the third floor of building number three facing the ocean and it was just awesome. We had four adults and three children under five years old. There was surfing close by, turtles, snorkeling not far away, BBQ's for all, etc. Highly recommend it.

Thank you for returning to Sands of Kahana. We are disappointed we did not meet your expectations on your latest visit.
