Sands of Kahana is one of the best resort/condo we've ever stay at! These rooms have a great location. The views from the condo were breathtaking. The cleanliness and comfort were excellent. The condo was huge, the largest I've ever stayed in. The staff were incredibly accommodating as our family arrived at dirrerent intervals, they were above and beyond with... More

We had a rough start on our trip at the Sands of Kahana, I had a confirmation # and my name on it, they had someone else on it. They managed to locate a room. The resort is nice and tucked away from the other resorts. Note: Everything is conveniently located: Pool and Beach - clean and ready for use!... More

We love the Sands of Kahana. The resort is conveniently located anyway from the big resort hotels. The staff is great and be sure to visit Brad at the activities desk. He's one of the best in Maui. Love love the Sands. We saw lots of sea turtles on the beach by the resort. Check it out. The best part... More

My husband and I went with our son and his family. We had a two bedroom unit and it was GREAT!! Plenty of room for everyone, close to the beach, and pool. Staff was nice too. I would go again for sure. We are owners and it is the first time we stayed.

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

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
