“Amazing, just perfect!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Thank You, we had a wonderful stay, rooms were perfect, views were amazing, quick in and out, no big lobby to go thru, we have always stayed in Kaanapali, but now Kahana Beach is our new vacation spot.

This place is at a lovely little beach that doesn't get a lot of people visiting. Not the best of you are looking for waves, but good for a gentle soak in the ocean. I think we saw a turtle every day we snorkeled there. Amazing sunset views from the ocean front rooms.

The building is dated and we were told that they are starting to freshen it up. We had some issues with cleanliness upon arrival, but called the front desk and they addressed it promptly. We stayed in a one room with a Murphy bed; my back hurt the whole week.

I found this area to be very void of restaurants and stores, so you end up driving for all groceries or meals. 20 minute drive to Lahaina proper.

The studio had a murphy bed that was hard as a rock. The bathroom was small and dated. The kitchen was so small we never used it. The pool was tiny. The location is nice. The beach there is nice. We had an oceanfront room which was nice. The sliding door, however, would not close well and the winds at night whistled through the door so loud they kept us up.

We arrived at Kahana Beach Resort with much anticipation. We have heard about the murphy bed and we were aprehensive to say the least. The bed was adequate, this is not a 5 star Hotel. The room is quite adequate, the view is to die for the bed needs improvement. For the two of us we had ample space and were quite pleased with the Lanai and we watched the sun come up behind us every day. We never got to see a sunset because we were always gone. There is a McDonald's about 1 mile past the hotel and plenty of places to eat. The stove, microwave and refridgerator worked very well and the linen service from the Hotel was very good. We throughly enjoyed our stay on Maui, you can't go wrong and would come back to this hotel as it is very reasonable. I exchanged with RCI so it was a good deal.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor and this was assigned to us we could not choose. We were quite happy on th...

This is my second stay at Kahana Beach and this review reflects two very good experiences. KB is a small property with only around 80 rooms. Every one has an ocean view, and it's a great one. The resort is right on Kahana beach, which is pretty but narrow. KB has the basic amenities- pool, jacuzzi (which hasn't worked since 2006, as best I can tell), barbecues, pool, chairs, etc. All of which are small but well kept. Always was able to get a chaise when looking for one. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. If you're looking for a great home base, convenient to Kaanapali, Kapalua and outside of the rush, this is it. If you need to be in a megaresort, or in the middle of the nightlife, probably not your best choice.
The rooms are mostly studios, which are hotel rooms on steroids. The 1BRs are few but enormous. You could sleep 20 people in here (but don't). Kitchens in both are well appointed, and beds are perfectly comfortable. Decor is timeshare-tiki, but you're not here for the furniture, right?
Overall, highly recommended for families and those seeking a laid back experience.

Room Tip: They're all good, but the 03+ room numbers have the most direct views.

We stayed here for a week and had an amazing ocean view from our studio room. The concierge staff were great! The murphy bed was ok, about what I expected from a murphy bed. Loved being right on the beach and the view was so spectacular! Even saw sea turtles every day! The hot tub didn't work but only tried to use it once. The property was very clean and updated.

Room Tip: I would choose a room away from the pool on an upper level. Our room was on the second floor right...

I read all the reviews and viewed the pictures of this "resort". My wife and I stayed 13 nights in room 305, ocean front, studio. We LOVED every minute, every day. This is not the traditional resort with flowery grounds and fiery lanterns, it is a simple place with minimal frills. Pool, BBQs hot tub, yes. Everything else is very close by. We had a studio room with a kitchenette which we used a lot and loved. Though the Murphy bed was not great it was more than adequate. I would stay here again in a heart beat. The staff was friendly and helpful. They did not force any timeshare presentation, was brought up but not pushed. I have stayed in much more lavish resorts and not enjoyed it as much as this. I wish I could convey how much we enjoyed our visit.
We watched daily as a large turtle ( at least 3 feet across) traveled across our ocean view, the funny thing was it would pass within 10 feet of people in the water and they would not even notice! My wife and I woul be yelling "TURTLE" from our balcony but they couldn't hear us. The first 3 nights we left the balcony door open, but after that we had to close it because the WAVES WERE TO LOUD! That is how close these wonderful rooms are to the water.
Thank you Kahana Beach Resort for an awesome vacation. Usually after 13 nights we would be more than ready to come home, even at the best resorts, but Kahana Beach became our home and we did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Request ocean view prior to check in, it is only a request but if you are lucky enough to get it you...

We are delighted that you loved every minute of your 13 night stay at Kahana Beach! We are glad our condo style accommodations were convenient and that our staff was friendly and helpful. Watching turtles travel across the ocean view right from your room sounds like a breathtaking experience. We greatly appreciate your compliments and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon!
