My husband and I stayed in unit 604, rented by Art and Sophie Nickel. We had an amazing time. We had our choice of a few units that he rents, and we chose 604 because of its updated kitchen and bath. Boy, did we make the right decision. This unit is wonderful, and very well updated. There were boogie boards, beach chairs, and coolers for our use. We rented a snorkel set for the week, and the snorkling right in front the hotel was good. Swimming here is a little tough, but if you take a quick walk to the right of the hotel (where the bouys are in front of the Kaanapali beach resort) it is far less rocky. We chose to stay at the Maui Kai instead of the Honua Kai due to the "smell" that some people had mentioned. GOOD CHOICE. You could smell the treatment plant each day, and the Maui Kai was just far enough to not have any issues. This is not a 5 star resort, this is a quiet condo complex, with good management. There were not a ton of kids running around the pool, and we kinda liked that it was more relaxing (for our honeymoon). The pool area was just fine for us, and actually very well done with the landscaping. If you want the resort feel with a waitress coming around the pool area serving overpriced pina coladas, this may not be the place for you. But, if you want a quiet, beautiful, well located place, you'll be making the right choice.
