Hono Kai condos have a great location near the beach, However the beach is not that beautiful as the others on Maui. Maalalea has a great location on the Maui, in the middle of the island and you can easily drive to Lahaina , Kahuluui, or other parts of the island. Be aware that the village is not hidden by the mountains so we experienced lot of showers. Furthermore, be ready for some noise produced by planes descending to Kahului airport.
Overall, the condo was great, clean and fully equipped. It is the location of village which is bit problematic.
