We stayed for 6 nights at unit 283. The view was spectacular. The unit was spacious. Particularly enjoyed the large kitchen. The kids enjoyed the hot tub. The staff were helpful. Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommend it.

Our experience of Sands of Kahana was not good, and it all stems from the unit they gave to us. Having called ahead of time to explain it was our honeymoon and it was going to be a special vacation and that we would like a unit with a pleasant view. Instead, we were given a ground floor unit overlooking... More

Aloha. We regret we fell short of expectations owing to your guest unit assignment. We do our best to grant specific room requests, but do not guarantee them. As you can imagine, rooms with ocean views are by far our most popular and are taken very quickly, first by our owners and then by exchange guests. We are sorry we... More

My husband and I spent a week at the Sands of Kahana in November. The room was clean, the furniture on the old side. We had a nice view with wonderful breezes when the doors were left open. There is no air conditioning. There is also no in room safe for valuables. The pool was on the cold side and... More

This is a beautiful resort and well-kept. There were five of us and we had three bedrooms and two baths--that was luxury as far as space. We had a partial view of the ocean from our patio and the foliage was lovely. Staff were especially friendly and helpful--they promptly fixed a door that came off its hinge and they charged... More
