When I had originally booked Sands through RCI, I had no idea what we were in for. The reviews were good and straight to the point. I had called and told them we were celebrating our anniversary, what we got in store was nothing short of amazing! When we arrived at check in, the representative was sweet and short. He... More

We are timeshare owners since 1997 and we have concluded that it has been the very best investment we have made! This year showed more improvements! New wall hangings (the others were so dated!) and wall safes! While I always felt safe with my things this adds to complete peace. They have switched to all flat screen TVs over the... More

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay at unit #366 in the Sands of Kahana. The building was easy to find and check-in was a breeze and the desk staff was very helpful with recommendations and offering to set up activities and tours. The unit was great and very spacious with an unbelievable view of the ocean and beach... More

If you are looking for a 5 star place like the Ritz or 4 Seasons, it may not be the place for you. If you are looking for a comfortable place to enjoy Maui, this is it. Roo.s are clean and although a bit outdated. Very comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. We love it here.

It just can't be said enough- rent a privately owned unit at the Sands of Kahana and you will be blown away by the huge size, views, turtles swimming by, whales too, in season and- maybe best of all- the AC that private owners have installed! We rented a huge corner penthouse in Building 3 (ONLY Building 3 and 2... More

This is my 2nd time staying at Sands of Kahana. I was fortunate enough to get the same unit, so this review is strictly based on the 3 bedroom corner unit. I also cannot comment on the costs as I've been fortunate enough to benefit from family member's timeshare. My first stay was 6 years ago and I can comment... More

We stayed here for 8 days at the end of August through the first part of September. We had an oceanfront 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit on the sixth floor. There was plenty of room. The view was incredible. Watching the daily sunsets over Lanai and Molokai was amazing. The views of the islands change during the day. So fun... More

We were at the property 8-19 thru 8-26, and we will never stay here again. The lack of A/C means all windows and doors much be kept open for ventilation -- and of course it was a very hot week when we were there. Combine the heat with the noise from the street and residents and sleeping was miserable. Despite... More

Aloha, bcgrunwald. Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed we fell short of expectations. Like many resorts on Maui, we do not have central air conditioning - a fact that is mentioned on all our online booking sites. We rely on the temperate climate to provide natural cooling relief and are sorry if it proved insufficient to the task.... More
