We spent about 5 days at Koa Kea in April. While I've stayed at many places with staff as accommodating and professional as Koa Kea, I would say I've never met a staff as legitimately friendly. The room was a great size (we were afraid it would be a little small, but it was spacious) and I loved the bathroom...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed February 13, 2017

We were thrilled with the feeling of the Koa Kea from the minute we were greeted by the young man when we drove up to the hotel. Angelea greeted us with a smile and was truly happy we arrived. She talked to us to see if we wanted to do any excursions or if we just wanted to kick back...

From the moment we drove up to the property we were treated so warmly and with such respect! There valet service is amazing, with both speed of service and helpfulness as we would head out. They always checked if we needed directions or suggestions. The staff inside are both courteous and helpful and always made sure it stay was perfect!...

A coworker had recommended this resort as she stayed there several years ago. It got me into researching Koa Kea. The reviews were spot on. My husband and I enjoyed staying at this resort for four nights to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. If you want a quiet place to retreat during the day or even the evening this is...

No fault with the hotel except I was expecting more for the price. Beautiful location right on the beach and there were also plenty of sunbeds available round the pool. The bedroom was nice but not exceptional but the bed was very comfortable. Small balcony with sea view an amazing place to see the sunset. The bathroom was nice but...

Spent a week here and we really loved the place. Staff at all levels was excellent and attentive from the front desk to the housekeeping staff to the valet/bell personnel. They really made us feel special. The grounds are kept meticulously cleaned and well-groomed. Staff remember you and give a warm response whenever they encounter you on the grounds. They...

Love, love, love this resort. We had an oceanfront room and it was awesome! Beautifully decorated and I just can't say enough. Not too crowded, just what we needed. You can go to the pool and just walk down to the beach. Amazing Mai Tai's! I suggest only having two because they taste so good but are deadly. Food was...

This place was really special to us. The small hotel we enjoyed in Maui closed to become luxury condos. We were still grieving the loss of our favorite place. We were very happy with this hotel. Small, intimate, but plush. We got an oceanfront room and the view took my breath away. Nice beach a few steps away and wonderful...

We were off to a bad start as we had made reservations three months ago for two rooms. One with double bed and the other with two beds. Upon arrival we were informed that they had no rooms with two beds for our kids. They had to share a double bed. Other than that we had a great time there....

This hotel is located between several great beaches. Nice waves, beautiful sunsets! We had an oceanfront room and would definitely recommend that option. Building, grounds and pool area are well maintained. Staff are friendly and helpful. We liked the smaller size of the hotel - it was quiet, enough pool chairs and staff and no competition for either! The Red...
