It is my hope; this review will be fair and objective to everyone. We stayed at the KF resort from Dec 21-28, 2012. We arrived on an early flight and requested for an early check-in. The room wasn’t ready, so Max at the front desk, trying hard to accommodate us, asked for our phone numbers to contact us when it was ready. We drove around to see some attractions nearby (Honolua Bay, the Blow hole) and had lunch. Max called around 3pm. FYI, the resort’s check-in time is 4pm and check-out time is 10 am. We are a timeshare owner and exchanged via RCI. We got a hotel room unit. We asked if an upgrade would be avail (larger unit, ocean view, etc.). We were told that there would be an upgrade fee of $40 something dollars for a Studio unit, and if that was available. We just wanted to check in, so we decided to stay with the Hotel Room unit. Our room was on the 5th floor and it came with small windows that over looks the outdoor hallway. If you opened the blinds any passerby could look into your room. Ocean view room would be difficult in our opinion because there were other resorts which were taller located between KF and the ocean. Parking was free. It was never full probably because there weren’t too many timeshare owners vacationing…Our first impression of the resort was its cleanliness, even though things were a bit outdated. The staff was nice and friendly. It’s well-maintained.
Our room was 503B. First, you would see one key entry for both units A & B, then you would enter a small foyer and see another key entry door to your unit. The room was about 10x10 ft. It had bamboo flooring; ceiling fan with lights; a small fridge with ice trays; cupboards with dishes, utensils, Tupperware, salt and pepper shakers, glasses; dishwashing liquid & sponge; paper towels; kitchen towels, a microwave, remote controlled AC unit, etc… pretty much everything you would need for a short stay. The bathroom had a double-sink with hair dryer, soap, lotion, etc. The bathtub was enclosed and jetted. All and all, it was decent and nice. The room furniture was something to talk about. The furniture had a tropical theme (a dresser, a small round glass top table with two chairs, two gigantic bedside lamps, DVD player, a small flat screen TV, and internet hookup – no Wi-Fi avail in rooms, only in the lobby and Ohana room). The bed made a lot of noise due to poor construction or something. But oh well. Housekeeping was once a day for any towel exchange and trash removal. Thorough cleaning…? Not sure during our stay.
The Resort offered a Jacuzzi in the back near a laundry room. We thought it was nice and private. There was a small pool for swimming (but it was cold so we didn’t use it). There was a koi pond. There were gas grills available. There were two kitties lounging in the lobby area and they were cute. Beaches and parks are across the hotel. The hotel’s location was not bad, 15 min north of Lahaina, 45 min to Kuhului or Kihei. It’s a bit windy on this part of the island. The ocean in general was cold for this time of the year. We had a nice stay at the resort. We spent most of the time outdoor and a small room didn’t affect our vacation much.
