We enjoyed our stay here. We had an ocean view unit on the 7th floor. The room was clean and well-appointed, although not luxurious by any means. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is teeny-tiny, but adequate. The ocean view was limited, as the view was blocked partially by the rest of our building, and by the building next door. But we could see the ocean - one night at sunset we could see 6 different pods of whales at one time.
The building next door was destroyed by fire and had not been torn down, and the condos past that were mostly boarded up - not sure why. So that did take away from the "ambience" a little bit.
You may want to consider skipping the free continental breakfast put on by the concierge desk. They ran out of food, the goal is to sell tours, so if you're not interested in a tour skip it. We did get some info on weather which was helpful.
Our shower head leaked, we called the front desk, and they sent someone up to fix it right away.
Pool was nice. We didn't use the beach here at all, except for watching the sunsets. Good snorkeling sites are a short drive away.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Make yourself at home in Kahana. This beachfront community is the calm cousin to West Maui’s high-profile destinations of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua Resort. You won’t find the typical string of Maui hotels, dazzling storefronts, and streams of shoppers and diners – although that’s only a few minutes away if the mood strikes. Welcome the sun on a morning stroll chasing waves along the sand. Breathe in the breeze that sweeps across the ocean view from your high-rise lanai. Marvel at humpback whales slapping and rolling so close to shore! ... more less
