We live in Alberta, Canada. When I booked on the phone Leslie was so nice and helpful, made me feel really comfortable about my decision to stay at Luana Kai. We got there late at night and everything was as they said it would be. Great place. We rented a jeep so we could explore the island on our own,... More

Leslie and Mario in the office, areso helpful and caring to both us and our various visitors. They were always ready to make a good experience even better! Whale watching from Luana Kai is wonderfully easy. Beach walking is pleasant and easy.

We were three couples staying in a 3 bedroom condo (C311) and had absolutely no complaints. The rooms were well appointed and kitchen was stocked with all cooking essentials. We loved that we were able to walk to the beach. There were several take out eateries within a couple of miles and several supermarkets within a mile. Definitely recommend this... More

Luana Kai visitors keep coming back year after year, it is a common topic in the hot tub how much everyone likes this complex. There is beach access, but this beach is mainly good for walking, kite and wind surfing, soaking up the sun in a beach chair, and watching sunsets. The complex has a really nice pool and hot...

Lovely location, no beach access but the room was nice, close to shops and restaurants and very near the main highway. Our condo was a little dated but very comfortable and the layout was very nice. Had a lovely loft bedroom. No air conditioner but the ocean breeze was lovely.

We just returned from a wonderful month at the Luana Kai. My husband, myself and our 15 month old twins arrived Jan 5. Everything about the resort was great, (i'll get into that later) except one thing. I had read several reviews about this property on Trip Advisor and was warned that some of the suites were not very clean.... More

First let me say that the common areas including the pool were very clean and well maintained. The staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful and we would likely stay at the resort again. We had four families in separate condos - 3 were great. We stayed in A202. The best thing I can say about A202 is that... More

i travelled alone and felt perfectly safe and comfortable in this resort. I had an ocean view walk out. It is helpful to understand the trade winds and that they blow in dust beyond belief. this could be some of the comments about the cleanliness. If the windows are open, your condo is going to be dusty. my condo was... More

This was our first and last trip to Luana Kai. Our group rented 4 units at Luana Kai and 3 out of the 4 were very dirty! We selected Luana Kai because the grounds looked beautiful from the pictures. We wanted a nice grassy place for our 4 yr old to run around and our baby to crawl about. The... More

Our unit was double booked when we first arrived, forcing us to move to another place. When we did finally get settled in unit D304, we found it to be dirty and our first night we got bitten by bed bugs. After catching a couple bugs and confirming this was the case, we were promptly moved to another location. Would... More
