I have the pleasure of traveling a lot to beautiful destinations and visiting Mana Kai Maui with another couple and my significant other last week was no exception! This updated and renovated property was AWESOME! Our unit (#531) has an entry hallway and then a room on the left that has a king bed, nice bathroom along with a small...

We spent a wonderful week at the Mana Kai (Sept 26-Oct 2) in 402A. The condo decor is dated but the room location was perfect with an amazing view of the ocean and beach. It didn't hurt that the weather cooperated the entire stay so that we could enjoy water activities and the beach. The room was quite comfortable with...

Mahalo for you review. Some of the rooms here are in the remodeling process this year and next. The owners of 402 have put it on the market for sale and are not remodeling it, but the location closer to the ocean is excellent. See you the next time you're on Maui. Aloha

We stayed at the Mana Kai Maui from Sept 12-16, 2016 in Room 402. The view was amazing, the room was ok, but the carpet was filthy, it really needed to be cleaned and I ended up wearing socks around the condo to keep my feet clean. Also there were tiny ants? insects? on our suitcases when we were getting...

Thank you for writing your review. I am sorry the carpet was not clean, we could have cleaned it during your stay with a dry method of cleaning. We are looking to improve our kitchen appliances, amenity package, so your suggestions are welcomed. We'll see you next time. Aloha

Mahalo for your excellent review of the property and amenities. We do have one of the greatest locations on the island and so close to the ocean. Sometimes guests tell us the waves action against the beach during storming times is a little loud. You didn't leave much out, except we have outstanding staff working here as well. We look...

I could rate this hotel higher because the staff was pleasant and the grounds, location and presentation were very nice. However, there are some rooms that you just don't want, and I had one of them. I was on the 5th floor in 514A. This room is at the very end of the hotel (closer to the street but still...

Our sincere apologies for the condition of your room. I will research with our Executive Housekeeper to find out what happened. What you are describing about the view and parking is a hotel type room 514B. I was happy you enjoyed our location and services with the exception of housekeeping, which is not how we operate. Mahalo for your review.

Mana Kai is located in South Kihe close to little bars and restaurants. Some of the key Mana Kai highlights are the following: - fantastic 5 Palms restaurant (great happy hour 3 to 9pm). - rental equipment for all non-motorized water sports - convenience store - impeccable beach - great snorkeling - good selection of ocean facing condo's or hotel...

Aloha and thank you for your review. Although 812 is not in the on site rental program, it is a fine example of condo units available to rent here. We will pass on the information to the owner. Mahalo

Being first trip to Maui I wanted to find a place that felt local. Well I found it. I couldn't afford the condo portion, so it was hotel side for me. It overlooked the parking lot, but don't let that deter you. I barely noticed any noise and I was still able to hear and see the ocean from my...

Mahalo for choosing to stay with us. The hotel type room is a good value and as you pointed out, you could still hear the ocean. It's been a hot and dry summer and the ants tend to go inside looking for water. The local folks that live in this state all put up with ants and other insects inside...

Absolutely loved this old school relaxed resort in Kihei. The location on a headland looking down the beach and coast is magical. We had 3 apartments and each had a spectacular view, even the one furthest away from the beach. Apartments a nice size, with lounge and kitchen. Dated but totally fine. Some were undergoing renovation and I assume all...

Mahalo for taking the time to write your review. You covered a lot and I am sure it will help others that have not stayed here make a decision to try us. Not being a "brand" property is not a bad thing especially with our beachfront location. Hope to see you folks next year. Aloha
