Just spent 7 days in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom unit on the 1st floor of building 1. Our unit was actually up a flight of stairs, as there is a parking garage below the building. The elevator happened to be out of service during our entire stay - really felt sorry for those staying on the 6th floor carrying luggage!... More

We have been bringing our family to the Sands for the past 20 years so coming again is just like going back home. We love the family atmosphere and now that we have young grandchildren, really appreciate the children's pool and hot tub. We are very fortunate to also have a nice ocean-front beach where turtles can often be seen.... More

We have been owners at the Sands of Kahana since the mid- 90's. We have stayed here at least a dozen times since. We have a three bedroom and it is extremely spacious and sleeps 6 in beds or a pull out adds 2 more. The rooms are large with ample space to not feel crowded with your company. The... More

suite151. Great views. Nice pool and close to beach. Windy. Unresponsive service. 6th floor up from garage with elevator out of service for entire 7 day stay. Inconvenient location in regards to island. Spacious but 80s style 3 bedroom condo unit. Excellent widescreen tvs. Good internet. NO AIR CONDITIONING in the suite made it almost unbearable.

Aloha, Marc. Thank you for your visit and feedback. We hope you will accept our sincere apology for the inconvenience you experienced while we repaired the elevator. Many resorts on Maui rely on the temperate climate to fill the role of central air conditioning. It is usually a reliable source of relief from the heat, and we are very sorry... More

Very roomy, modern, and clean apartment with two bedrooms. I shared with two couples and had the fold-out in the living room......with a view of the Pacific, Molokai, and Oahu! I had my own HD TV as well. Also free WiFi that I used a lot. Try to get one of the ocean view rooms. It's not super luxury but... More

This place is a time share vacation club. The rooms are spacious and we'll apportioned. The location is great and the views from the lanais are awesome. The pool is a little on the warm side but a nice feeling when you get out. Sure wish there were hammocks between the palm trees though. All in all I like it.

Came first time in 1996 and been back at least a dozen times. This is a time-share property which has a reasonable value, for a great view in a casual setting. The complaints first - the elevators are deadly slow, the check-in process is not customer friendly. Now the rest of the story - the views are out of this... More

Stayed here with two other couples. Had a two bedroom unit and had plenty of room for the six of us. Would not hesitate for a moment to return. Stayed for two weeks. No major problems, just a few minor issues held me back from rating five stars. No AC is common for Hawaii. While not "necessary" would be a... More

First time I ever exchanged my timeshare with Interval, so I really didn't know what to expect. Didn't have AC, so I was a little leery. As it turned out, Best Vacation Ever! Daytime highs were near 90, but the ceiling fans and ocean breeze had us pulling up covers every night. Low humidity allowed the rooms to stay cool... More

Right on the beach, great snorkeling - right there. The units are a bit dated, but they are clean and spacious. Nice balcony in room 314 (we stayed in this room) and had a great view. There is a volleyball court, tennis court, and water sports and rentals onsite (small stuff not major, but good enough for a fun time).... More
