This is the third time our family has stayed here and we are probably not coming back. I'm embarrassed that I have referred countless people here and come to find out the place is not what it once was. We entered to a condo that was flooded by a refrigerator. The maintenance on the phone was trying to walk me... More

The property is very well kept. Beach is great, right on property. Pool is very clean and well kept. Location of facility is off the main roads so area is very peaceful. We had a 3 bedroom condo and it was very spacious. We were 6 and we had more than enough room with a private bath with each room... More

Thank you for taking the time to share a few comments on your stay at Sands of Kahana. We appreciate your complimentary remarks about our resort grounds, great location and spacious condo-style accommodations. Typically Maui’s temperate climate is enough to mitigate our lack of central air conditioning, and we are sorry for any discomfort you experienced owing to a recent... More

I am writing this review because I cannot sleep in this condo. I am shocked that there are any - much less a high number - of positive reviews. They cannot have stayed at the same place! I hope that you will listen to me when I say: DO NOT STAY HERE. THERE IS NO A/C. NO VENTILATION SYSTEM, NO... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We appreciate your feedback and are disappointed you ended your visit prematurely. Maui’s temperate climate typically mitigates the lack of central air conditioning in our timeshare units, even in summer. We are sorry it proved inadequate during your stay over an exceptionally hot and windless stretch. Your statement that owners... More

Stayed in a 3 Bedroom/2 Bath unit in building one, with a great view of the ocean from the balcony. The unit was clean and large...large fans in each room offered needed relief. Layout was a little funny, with one bedroom "hidden" behind main door. The facility is right on the beach and waves were small...easy enough to snorkel, and... More

Clean easy going with good location. Constant breeze and fans make air conditioning unnecessary. 11 people in 3 bedroom condo was manageable. 5 kids under 10. Kiddie pool with hot tub and big pool with hot tub. Right on ocean with sandy beach but a little rocky. Waves fairly small as on western side of island. On site restaurant under... More

Loved property and location. Stayed in building 2 (unit 292) and would recommend this building to anyone. Right on the beach and units have beach gear in them or can be checked out from hotel. Beaches here are great and quieter than other places. Views of molokai and lanai from unit. Very spacious units but elevators are slow. Would stay... More

Why stay in a hotel. That was the discussion around the grill a couple nights ago, with some people from Oregon,Michigan and two couples from Southern Cal. A two bedroom is over 1500 sq ft and right on the beach. The staff is wonderful. You will see other reviews about the views and they are true. Of course not all... More

Sands of Kahana has a view of both Lanai and Molokai, and the sun sets right between the two; beautiful! We have stayed here multiple times.
