We stayed at the Mana Kai Maui from Sept 12-16, 2016 in Room 402. The view was amazing, the room was ok, but the carpet was filthy, it really needed to be cleaned and I ended up wearing socks around the condo to keep my feet clean. Also there were tiny ants? insects? on our suitcases when we were getting... More

I could rate this hotel higher because the staff was pleasant and the grounds, location and presentation were very nice. However, there are some rooms that you just don't want, and I had one of them. I was on the 5th floor in 514A. This room is at the very end of the hotel (closer to the street but still... More

Mana Kai is located in South Kihe close to little bars and restaurants. Some of the key Mana Kai highlights are the following: - fantastic 5 Palms restaurant (great happy hour 3 to 9pm). - rental equipment for all non-motorized water sports - convenience store - impeccable beach - great snorkeling - good selection of ocean facing condo's or hotel...

Being first trip to Maui I wanted to find a place that felt local. Well I found it. I couldn't afford the condo portion, so it was hotel side for me. It overlooked the parking lot, but don't let that deter you. I barely noticed any noise and I was still able to hear and see the ocean from my... More

Mahalo for choosing to stay with us. The hotel type room is a good value and as you pointed out, you could still hear the ocean. It's been a hot and dry summer and the ants tend to go inside looking for water. The local folks that live in this state all put up with ants and other insects inside... More

Absolutely loved this old school relaxed resort in Kihei. The location on a headland looking down the beach and coast is magical. We had 3 apartments and each had a spectacular view, even the one furthest away from the beach. Apartments a nice size, with lounge and kitchen. Dated but totally fine. Some were undergoing renovation and I assume all... More

Mahalo for taking the time to write your review. You covered a lot and I am sure it will help others that have not stayed here make a decision to try us. Not being a "brand" property is not a bad thing especially with our beachfront location. Hope to see you folks next year. Aloha More

Stay here EVERY time we visit Maui. All rooms are on the ocean and have ocean and mountain views. Condos have full kitchens and most are outfitted with everything you need to cook meals. We prefer the rooms 601, 701 and 801 because they are the end units nearest the beachfront.....but all rooms have a great view. There is a... More
