My wife and I just wrapped up a five night stay at Honua Kai, and we really loved our stay. The condo was absolutely beautiful and well maintained, and even though our lanai looked over the highway and the Westin's ongoing construction, we enjoyed how big it was. The pools were really nice and we loved how close to the... More

My hubby and I stayed here for our honeymoon ! Great rooms with everything that you could want a full kitchen, spacious bathroom and washer/dryer. Unfortunately only one restaurant on site Dukes which has great great food ! The rooms were fabulous, we mostly stayed at the beach and not at the pools. This is a great place for families... More

We first stayed here about 5 or so years ago and thought it was a great option in the Kaanapali area. This time, it just seemed okay. I can't quite put my finger on it... The personnel were nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and neat. The grounds were well maintained. Overall, the stay was nice and this is... More

We usually stay in wailea when we come to Maui but we thought we would try out kanapali. 45 min drive from airport which is longer than wailea. Best to shop at Costco when you land. There is a Safeway in Lahaina and a times grocery store across the street from the complex. We stayed in the konea building on... More

Stayed with my wife and kids in a partial ocean view one bedroom suite on the 3rd floor. Very upscale and it had a separate bedroom with a king bed with two other areas with pull out sofa beds. Lanai was huge and had a separate dining table and an assortment of chairs. Unfortunately, everyone staying at Honua Kai was... More

The rooms were fabulous. Everything that you could ask for, spacious, well appointed with great views. The only restaurant on site, Duke's, was mediocre. The pools and hot tubs were a major disappointment. There was no view of ocean from the pool areas. There were five pools. They were all 3 1/2 feet deep. Four were completely run over with... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, it was ok nothing great. We got a 2 bedroom condo facing the mountains, didn't realize that part of hotel is super windy we couldn't really use the lanai. There is a construction next to it so there is noise. We like the kitchen good appliances. The air conditioner in our unit was not working... More

We stayed in a two bedroom two bath condo on the 5th floor facing the ocean and we loved it. The rooms were spacious, the kitchen modern and well stocked. The washer and dryer in unit was a godsend for an active family. The pool areas included a small lazy river and a small water slide for kids. The pools... More

Grounds and location were as expected and very nicely kept and gorgeous. Concierge Sara was very helpful in our orientation, and we appreciated that she took her time with us instead of responding to the others who just popped in during our session. 2 bedroom unit on 5th floor was very nice with partial ocean view, until the night our...

I've been to Maui many times, stayed in Wailea and Kaanapali/Lahaina, and this is hands down one of the best resorts on Maui! The grounds and apartments are well maintained. It is conveniently located near a few supermarkets. There is plenty of parking. I loved every minute of my stay here.
