Great For Young Kids

Posted May 23, 2015
We had a great stay. The rooms are great, nice kitchens, spacious for a family. We faced the mountains and the view is nice, but the deck was windy. We didn't eat there or really spend time there because of the wind. This locations is great to explore this area, although the resort beach is steep so we would drive north and south to the nearby beaches. We loves our trip and thought we picked the right resort for our stay.

Friendly staff but one of the pools was under construction for an unknown period of time so was hard to find room by the other pool.

Research proves Honua Kai is the best!

Posted May 21, 2015
Last year after hours of research, we decided on the Honua Kai resort and we're very impressed. It was only myself and wife and we stayed around 6 days. We enjoyed it immensely. This year once again I did my extensive research to try to find a comparable to Honua kai experience in maui (just to mix it up) and it led me once again to the Honua Kai. We booked it once again,this time for 19 days and with the whole family. The vacation was unbelievable in every way. A tip is to make your trip more enjoyable is to use their amenities on site they are world class and I travel alot. There are many items and excursions you can book with the concierge from a luau to zip lining... we did them all...crazy fun.. One last funny note: While we were there at the resort I emailed a few people some pictures from the balcony in our room showing the resort with the pools and beautiful palm trees etc. When 2 of them replied they accused me of photo shopping the images from a magazine. I guess it is unbelievable

Family of Four Vacation

Posted May 20, 2015
Pros: Modern look and clean. Beautiful view from balcony.
Cons: Kitchen tools could be better. Had to call for human size cereal bowls...had about 4 mixing bowls. Teflan pan for eggs scratched beyond desirable use.
Location: Super windy!! Was told by others that the tradewinds are unpredictable. However, further south seemed better.
The Honua Kai was a nice looking resort to stay at. First two days of our week trip was perfect. After that it was off-and-on with gusty gusty winds. It put a real damper on the trip to be in such a nice area and not be able to lay out, read a book and have a drink at your side...the winds just didn't make that possible. As well, the balcony glass doors open up completely, making almost the whole wall gone...really nice!! However, the winds didn't allow that either after the first two days. By contrast, in Lahaina the winds were almost non-existent. Also walking over to neighboring Westin (not too far away), the way of the layout somehow died the winds down to a very bearable minimum. Walked back to our place and we were in a whirlwind again. Besides that, it's a very nice looking place and 1 or 2 of the pools were slightly heated making the wind more tolerant. One of the biggest disappointments was the pool slide attendant. My son cannot swim and uses a round floatie. After the first two days of him having a blast on the slide, with me at the bottom ready to catch him (they will not allow two at a time), all days after that they turned him away, stating no floaties allowed on the slide. That was the peak of his fun there and it was taken away. What was the danger? Why did they allow me to go first, me stating very clearly that I would be waiting for him, and then tell him by himself, make him walk all the way back down to tell me he wasn't coming. Not cool.

Nice hotel right on the beach

Posted May 19, 2015
we were very impressed with Honua Kai resort. we loved our one bedroom condo.it has everything you need for a luxury vacation. The beach was litterally a 10 mins walk from our condo. The washer and dryer was very useful for our stay.overall we would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful hotel with construction on both sides

Posted May 19, 2015
Pros: The rooms are nicely decorated. The pools are the best.
Cons: I don't like having to wear paper wrist bands at the pool. Please figure out another way to discern your hotel guests from pool crashers.
Location: This hotel is across the street from a market, so it is very convenient to shop for groceries.Great snorkeling at the beach right next to the hotel.
I love this resort. My toddlers love all the pools. We went swimming twice a day at least. They are, unfortunately, in between 2 construction sites right now! Beeping giant cranes and diggers are not what we came to Maui to hear. I suggest you ask for an inner courtyard room to avoid the noise. We didn't hear any of it when we switched rooms.
