“We'll return to Room 201!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2011

These are individually owned condos, so that I can only vouch for Room 201 as the most amazing place we've ever stayed. From the spacious lanai, overlooking the black sand beach and witness to awe-inspiring sunsets, to the spacious and comfortable California king bed, one makes discovery after discovery that enhance these rooms even more. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, baking or (our favorite) BBQ-ing at the grills one short walk down the hill among the beautiful gardens. There's even an herb garden! The lack of air conditioning is fully compensated for by ceiling fans and the wonderful breezes that waft through the unit. The bedroom can be shut off from the rest of the unit by panels that retract into the walls to accommodate late sleepers. I actually did a video walk-through of Room 201 so we'd never forget it!

My wife and I stayed here one night. Very clean, beautifully decorated, fantastic balcony with a great view of the ocean. We pulled out the futon to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves instead of using the bedroom! Fully stocked kitchen was a plus. Close to a few restaurants with a small grocery store down the road. We would choose this unit again.

We had a great 2 nights in unit 4-5, a 2-bdr (plus living room, kitchen, lanai, balcony and 2 bathrooms) that was beautiful. Seemed newly renovated and beautifully decorated throughout, from bathroom tilework to furnishings, fully stocked kitchen and perfect setting. Our balcony and lanai looked right over the beach/ocean and the way it was situated we felt nicely private. A beautiful sunrise woke us up each morning. Fans and ocean breezes kept the room comfortable at night for sleeping, in spite of no a/c. Would definitely recommend and return again to spend even more time exploring Hana AND enjoying peaceful time on the lanai and balcony.

We spent two days in Hana (wish it had been more!) and stayed at the Hana Kai Maui. It's a condo-tel (condos that are rented as hotel rooms when the people who own them aren't there, and and because it's run like a hotel, it includes maid service, has a front desk, etc....YEA!). We found the location very convenient to town, the beaches, Haleakala, etc. It was so peaceful and quiet. Our room was very clean and because we cooked our breakfast every morning, we really appreciated the well-appointed kitchen, especially given how small it was. My only complaint was that I wish they didn't charge an additional per-person charge after the first two people. That really starts to add up when you have two kids. However, this policy seems to be pretty standard in Hana. This was a nice way to start our trip around Maui.

Room Tip: Second floor corner unit is great (207).

very nice hotel. rooms was clean and exactly as shown in the photos. stayed in room 107. It was so peaceful sleeping to the sound of the ocean and birds.The staff was very pleasant. Would highly recomend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Hana. There is no a/c but it was fine. they did have a fan but we did not need it in march. there was a nice breeze at night.You get a nice view of the bay from the patio. The beach is not really sand but more small black rocks. It was nice being able to take the drive from kaanapali without rushing or leaving early. We saw all the sights past hana the next morning . we really had no crowds anywhere because of this and no traffic on the back side.

We wanted to stay in Hana a couple day and hike the nearby National Park. Hana Kai was right for our budget (Hotel Hana Maui - way to expensive) and the location from the photos looked ideal. The location is also ideal for the tsunami wave to hit the bay. Yes, we were there for the tsunami. At 9pm the manager called to forewarn us. At 10pm the sirens sounded. We packed up, but was greatful for her call. The one bedroom apartment was very nice. We were kind of worried when read the other reviews. But was nicely surprised when we openned the door. Clean, fresh smelling and fantastic views. We even spotted a whale or two while eating dinner on our lanai. The bathroom was newly tiled, new mattress, and everything was very clean. The staff was overly friendly and very helpful. The windows had all new screens and were huge to let in ocean breezes and lots of light. It was very comfortable sleeping weather with the windows just partially open. Plenty of places to sit and read, and the table had 4 chairs. The kitchen was amply supplied and no bugs. We would stay here again with no worries. The only problem was when other people walked their rolling suitcases on the wood decking it was loud, but we were asleep pretty early (trying to stay on CST).

Second time to Maui and first time staying in Hana. We wanted to see more in the Hana area and glad we chose this place. The office staff was very accomodating especially after we had a noisy upstairs neighbor the first nite. The condo was stocked (not with food but two stores near by) well maintained and cleaned every day. Thank you for a wonderful experience and a beautiful view. My husband didn't even miss the AC & TV!!
