Wonderful for our 40th Wedding Anniversary Trip

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: The condo was very nicely decorated with a beautiful view of the ocean. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything you might need.
Cons: No improvements needed.
Location: Quiet area with a Farmer's Market grocery store nearby which has an outdoor Farmer's Market weekly. Easy drive south to Lahaina to stroll and shop.
This complex is small and right on the ocean. There is a small beach and we snorkeled three times during our stay. Snorkeling was great as we saw lots of colorful fish and several green sea turtles. We rented equipment from Boss Frog's and it worked great. It really pays to get equipment that fits well. The condo (#304) was lovely with a perfect view of the ocean from the lanai. We enjoyed our morning coffee watching as the sun rose behind us lighting up Moloka'i, which was just across the water. This condo was everything we had hoped it would be. We are much more comfortable in a small complex as opposed to a large resort. Thank you Hono Koa Vacation Club! If we are fortunate enough to come back to Maui, we will certainly come back.

Older Condo, OK for the price.

Posted Aug 2, 2014
OK, but not great. No hot water for 2 days. Called maintenance and office, received a recording. Requested call back with status of system repair, did not receive call. Second bedroom blinds did not work properly, screen doors old and need replacement. Condo staff going around with leaf blower screaming for 1 hour at 8:00 AM. No lighting on lanai, so eating or reading on the deck after 7:00 PM is not possible. Door to room was so heavily spring loaded that my wife could not open it. The condo is old, but updates are recent. The property is so small there is little more than a walkway around both sides, this is also the only access to the beach, pool, and BBQ's. Small sandy beach at the condo, OK at low tide. Overall OK, I have had worse, and certainly have had better.

I loved this place. Clean, updated and quiet.

Posted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: Fully equipt and close to everything. Kid friendly.
Cons: There isn't air conditioning but the ceiling fans did a great job.
Location: Nice beach for kids and shopping area with walking distance.
Excellent place. I loved the little beach area. The facility was super clean. You could borrow beach items such as blow ups, boogie boards and such from the office.

Nice place in convenient location

Posted Jun 9, 2014
The place is a little outdated but the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. It's within a close distance to farmers market and other stores. It's right by the ocean but there really is no beach because the water comes up almost to the wall of rocks leaving only a narrow passage of sand. Other then that a great place to stay.

Great room, furnished kitchen. Close to golfing. Turtles on the beach, need to remind others to leave them alone

Hotel made first trip to Maui unforgettable

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: Having a full kitchen in the room was a definite plus, saved a ton on cooking breakfeast every day and the market was just down the street.
Cons: The picture in expedia could be updated they dont do this place any justice
Location: Location was great, near everything you want from Maui. Beaches, activities, restaurants, market, ....
was blown away when we arrived to room 104. It was as big as our jome back in LA. Big enough for two small families.The place was so clean didnt fine my self having to keep repeating to my kids " dont touch that"

Excellent Value

Posted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: Grilling dinner by the water after snorkeling
Cons: One hot windless night although the staff provided an additional fan
Excellent value for a reasonably priced Maui vacation spot. Very good snorkeling and swimming right at the hotel, Very clean throughout and the cleanliness and upkeep of the pool and BBQ area were worthy of special praise. Only negative comment on comfort would be the lack of air conditioning, but it was only really an issue when the trade winds took a break. Will certainly keep Hona Koa near the top of the list for a future visit

Peaceful and Quiet.

Posted Jul 11, 2013
Pros: The space, the location, just a short drive to great beaches and Lahaina.
Cons: Should follow through on activities posted on bulletin board. You should not cancel if scheduled.
Location: Great location. beaches are close by, local farmers market within walking distance, just far enough away from resorts.
Could not have asked for a better experience. Great view and excellent location! Patio perfect for relaxing morning coffee. We will go back!

First time out

The hotel room was comfortable and large. Amenities were in abundance. Office staff extremely friendly and understanding. View was awful but was grateful for room after Hotels.com "screw-up"
