HoneymoonPosted Jul 29, 2014
Lets start with the location. Hale Pau Hana is steps away from a gorgeous beach. There is a small reef right off the shore that my husband and I snorkeled over. We got to see many types of fish, crabs, a sting ray and a sea turtle.more wildlife than we saw out on the Pride of Maui!! The condo we stayed in was gorgeous and had every utensil you could possibly need. We were on the 6th floor and had a wonderful view of the sunset. The staff at Hale Pau Hana were friendly and efficient. After a long morning out on a boat snorkeling all we wanted to do was get home and shower but we were out of clean towels. Called the office and they sent someone up within 5 minutes. We felt welcomed and lucky because we got to take part in a birthday luau for one of the guests/condo owners. So much fun! The price is completely reasonable for the location. We looked at hotels and would have paid double for the amount of space we got at Hale Pau Hana. Thank you so much for making our honeymoon so memorable! If I ever get back to maui I will for sure be staying at your resort again!

Nice condos right on the beach.Posted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: Beautiful setting, right on the beach and wonderful sunsets. Large rooms and plenty of amenities to make yourself at home.
Cons: Air conditioning and housekeeping (noted above).
Location: Centralized location on Maui, with the beach, luaus, snorkeling, dinner cruises, Haleakala, surfing, and road to Hana.
Nice stay overall and great setting. I would stay again. Some items of note though, air conditioning only for bedroom not for the rest of the condo, which was tough to get used to as the afternoon sun heated up the condo tremendously. Also, indicates daily housekeeping, but actually only change of towels and garbage for Mon, Wed & Fri. Not a significant problem, just need to plan accordingly.

GoodPosted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: The location was great, free WI FI is always nice.
Cons: Please see notes in the Experience section.
Location: That was also a plus, lots to do and very nice restaurants.
The overall stay was good. The furniture needs upgrade; the wicker sofa kept rolling away it was difficult to sit and relax without it rolling away. The bathroom was a lot smaller than we would have liked; although the shower was spacious. We noticed the air conditioner was leaking water, for the duration of our stay. We did however report it upon check-out. We were told that the maintenance staff had noted this as they make rounds. I don't think they did this week otherwise it would have been noted.

JUST THE PLACE WE WANTED :)Posted Jun 18, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, convenience, friendly staff.
Location: Convenience of everything nearby. Only about 15-20 min from airport.
This place was amazing! Very cozy condo. Well maintained grounds. Beachfront with convenience of shops and restaurants across the street. Pool was warm and cleaned daily. Perfect place for a relaxing vacay for us. We would definitely stay here again.

Blissful!Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: Convenience of location. Thought put into the needed items in the rooms. Hawaiian decor.
Cons: Nothing! We loved it!
Location: Everything you'll need is within walking distance. Cafe O' Lei is a gem... Looks run-of-the mill from the outside, it's fantastic!
From the second we opened the door to the moment we closed it to leave, we were fully impressed with this hotel. The view from the lanai was so beautiful and the sound of the ocean was so relaxing, what's not to love?! It's conveniently located across from a mini mall that has everything you'll need (groceries, restaurants, souvenirs, ice cream, coffee) although I'd recommend the Safeway or Fooodmart grocery stores nearby as the prices in the general store are pretty steep. (The hotel key room also has a discount card for the Foodland) The hotel itself had everything a tourist would need, to include: beach chairs and towels, a cooler, umbrellas, kitchen dishes and utensils, spices for cooking, wireless access, DVDs, a laundry basket, even a bathroom scale to keep those vacation pounds in check! The common area of the room is not air conditioned but opening the windows is much better and there are window units in the bedrooms for sleeping. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beach area and lawn chairs were pristinely maintained. Laundry facilities were well maintained and useful.

Perfect beach!Posted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: The beach! Best beach hotel I've ever stayed in! And EVERY room has a full view of the beach! AND, you don't have to pay to park your rental car!
Cons: Update the furnishings, fix the elevator and install air conditioning in the rooms.
Location: Nothing on Maui is very far so all of the sights we wanted to see were easily accessible.
We spent 5 nights at the Hale Pau Hana Resort in Kehei, Maui. While I wouldn't really classify it as a "resort", we enjoyed our stay nonetheless. The best thing about it is the beach. It's GORGEOUS! Plenty of chaise lounges on a nice grassy area just above the beautiful sandy beach. During our stay the elevator was not working so we had to climb stairs to the 6th floor...good exercise but really inconvenient when it came time to carry luggage down. Staff helped us to get it up to the room but we left earlier than the office opened so no staff was available at our departure. The furnishings are adequate, although a little dated. It could definitely use a little design help! We like to stay in rooms with full kitchens so we can save money and eat in occasionally so this worked out well for us. Coming from Phoenix, where we're used to air conditioning, it was a bit surprising that there was only a small A/C unit in the bedroom. Even with both front & back doors open for air flow, afternoons could get pretty toasty in the living room & kitchen.

Beautiful condo with a great view of the beachPosted May 27, 2014
My husband and I were really happy staying at this resort. It was very spacious and loved waking up to the view of the beach and the sound of the waves. The beds aren't the best but located in a great location :)

Great place to stay in Kihei on the beachPosted May 21, 2014
Pros: The best feature of this resort is the location right on a beautiful sandy beach, and the fact that all units face the well maintained grounds.
Cons: There really wasn't anything that was lacking. We never used the AC in the bedroom as the fan was sufficient at night to keep us comfortable.
Location: The resort is located in a excellent central location on the island, making it a good base from which to do day trips and explore Maui.
Our family of four really enjoyed this condo located right on the beach in Kihei. We had a second floor unit right next to the stairs (unit 201) which allowed for a wonderful view and very quick access to the beach. The condo itself was clean, comfortable, and well stocked with kitchen supplies. It was great to have a balcony/lanai overlooking the beautiful grounds and beach. We rarely used the pool since we preferred swimming in the ocean. The best feature of this resort is the location right on a beautiful sandy beach. You could step outside and walk for miles along the countless beaches and connecting public trails, and just hop in the ocean for a swim whenever you liked. In contrast to the beach side of the resort, which gives you a feeling of being isolated and "away from it all", the other side of the condo faces South Kihei Road, with many stores and restaurants to explore. The resort is located in a good central location on the island, making it a good base from which to do day trips and explore Maui.

Amazing ocean view, beyond friendly staff!Posted Apr 26, 2014
Pros: Staff (Eunise at the front desk), ocean view, full kitchen, two full bathrooms
Cons: Safe was not working for the duration of our stay. Also, front desk closes at 4:30pm which is quite inconvenient, particularly when checking in later.
Location: Perfect location, close to everything (turtle beach, big beach, restaurants, bars, volleyball courts, etc)
Loved the hotel and staff, would definitely recommend. All rooms have an ocean front view. BBQ for all to use, nice pool, fully stocked kitchen, and close to everything (restaurants, bars, grocery store, etc). Eunise at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful. She went out of her way to help us plan on road to Hana trip, snorkeling, book shows, other suggestions, etc. thank you!!
