We booked our stay through Interval World, by using points from our Hyatt High Sierra Lodge in Lake Tahoe. It wasn't even close to a comparable trade. If you're looking for Hyatt quality, you'll be very disappointed with the Sands of kahana Resort. The 1 Bedroom unit we stayed is nothing more then an expanded Hotel room with a small... More

I have stayed at the Sands of Kahana with my family already 2 times. We stayed at a 3 bedroom ocean view unit. The condo was incredibly spacious, the kitchen was fully equipped, had a balcony, the bedrooms and bathrooms were definitely a good size. The place was really clean, and had everything we needed. My little cousins and I... More

Just returned from a week at Sands of Kahana. While the grounds aren't as luxurious as some of the grander hotels, I can't say enough about the condo! It was wonderful. Talk about a kitchen! It was large and fully equipped. We had a two bedroom and there was plenty of room! We had a red eye flight and they... More

We were there June 18/24 and like others I was concerned about the lack of A/C, no worries. We had a two bedroom on the third floor with a wonderful ocean view and the constant breeze made the unit very comfortable. The unit was very spacious and was well stocked. Very quiet resort and nice grounds. We had pre-planned all... More

First of all we would like to say "MAHALO" to Rich and Karen for the warm welcome we received at our arrival. They made sure we were satisfied with our accommodations.
