Good hotel with amenities, but some issues
JAYANTI P.
Apr 30 2017
Good but hidden charges such as crib rental and some impatience on part of check-in/housekeeping staff when asked to accommodate child's naptime
Customer Rating: 

Honua Kai very nice stay!

Apr 17 2017
The grounds of the honua kai were very nice. The room was very nice as well. Although I do not think the hotel deserves a 4 star rating. The hotel is at best a 3.5. The room is very well appointed but housekeeping does not come daily. The pools were nice but not the cleanest. Great location.
Customer Rating: 

Great vacation!

Honua Kai was very nice, updated, super friendly staff. Wonderful location, easy to get to Kapalua and Lahaina. My only complaint was that the beach area was rocky and I saw several peple walking with limps due to cutting their feet while boogie boarding. Loved the property in all other aspects. Next time, we wont forget our water shoes!

When we arrived to hotel Apple did not have our reservation and we could not check into a room. It took several day to clear up this problem. we lost several days of vacation because of this.

This hotel was exceptional. The staff was fantastic, the views breath taking, and the food was outstanding. I would never stay anywhere else in Maui. The service was so fantastic that I would look no further.

The room smelled of cooked lobster that never went away, however the maid service was excellent and the concierge service was the deciding factor in making or breaking our Maui experience. Having them describe the activities and make the reservations for our outing trips was beyond value.

Heaven for little children
ilir11, Calgary
Tue Jan 16 06:18:52 EST 2018
We stayed 11 nights at the Honua Kai with our 4 year old and 20 month old children. Overall was a very pleasant stay. The grounds are gorgeous, the suite was spacious, the swimming pools and hot tubs are plenty. Some things that make you deduct a star or two was that the every other day room service was very basic, lacking in cleaning and tidying, and often forgetting to restock supplies. The beach in front of the hotel is unusable for children, because of huge waves. The good news is that a 15 minute walk north can get you to a great public beach for children (Honokowai Beach Park across the Farmers Market) Also a 10 minute drive south gets you to Baby Beach in Lahaina. Otherwise we would only use the pools. There was an 8 dollar per night charge for the baby crib!!! We did the express checkout and didn't fight it, but left us with a disgusting feeling after spending thousands at this resort including the resort fee (Fees on top of fees).

Enjoyed a beautifully renovated & updated condo with tropical garden

We love returning to Honua Kai and our favorite ground floor condo, Hokulani 116! To our delight, the unit has been beautifully renovated & updated and is fresh, clean, and new feeling! We love the yard surrounded with tropical garden and the sounds of birds & ocean breeze. It's a very relaxing area of the Resort; it's private & peaceful. We like not having elevator-waiting taking away from our vacation experience, and we enjoy the quick access to beach & pools. Just like before, we find that booking with the owners directly is so easy. We booked through their website at TiredOfTheCold.com and Helene & Gary make the process easy. The resort itself is looking good! It has updated some pools, gardens, and gym and it's nice to see the care going into such a big resort. We enjoy vacationing here. Hokulani 116 has everything we need for relaxing and dropping out of our busy lives. The Resort & location is where we like to come. It's beautiful, safe, and there is always so much to do for fun!

Hot water runs short in the middle of shower; dryer doesn't work
travelerLP, California
Fri Jan 12 23:31:05 EST 2018
As titled - we are in one bedroom suite on the 6th floor for two nights. First night the dryer didn't work: ran for 10 minutes and stopped with error code; we had to repeat many runs of 10 or so minutes each to get close to having any dry cloth. Why would any well maintained hotel do this to its tenants? Second night, in the middle of the shower, hot water ran short after we gave two infants shower (infants can't take that much hot water, if you wonder why I mention this). Wife and I waited for 20 minutes and no hot water still. Why would any modern well-maintained hotel do this to its tenants? We booked based on the high ratings here on TripAdvisor - we were seriously disappointed. We had so many other great alternatives in the region otherwise. Felt disappointed in having to have this experience in Maui. Potentials bookers take note.

Great Place to Stay, just very much in need of an on-site restaurant actually capable of serving it's guests
MikeJr209, Oakdale, California
Fri Jan 12 23:17:45 EST 2018
The Honua Kai is a wonderful property. We were in a studio apartment with a King bed and a sofa sleeper for our 2 boys (age 17 and 21). We were able to get a very good deal on Home Away of around $300/night for an ocean view room. The room had a very nice kitchen, a washer and dryer, a very spacious and well appointed bathroom, and overall the room was even more spacious than we expected. Just keep in mind, the Honua Kai is NOT a hotel; however there is still bell men to help with luggage and a concierge desk to help those who need help planning activities. The best part of the resort, in my opinion, was how quiet the resort was. There is a fairly strictly enforced 10:00 pm quiet time on the property, but if you are busy swimming, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, hiking, etc., you will appreciate this! The biggest draw back to the Honua Kai is the on-site restaurant Duke's. One night we were told there would be a 2 hour wait for a party of 4 which ended up being a 4 hour wait, although we had walked to the neighbouring Westin instead to eat and drink, and a couple of nights later my wife and I left our 17 and 21 year old sons there and headed to town for a date night dinner while the boys planned on take-out from Duke's. Duke's told them they were just too busy to fix them anything, even for takeout, so they asked about getting a table and they told them they couldn't seat them (this was around 6:00 pm too) so they ended up paying to have an Uber take them to a local McDonalds which is just utterly ridiculous and the reason for the 3 star rating on the property instead of a 5 star rating. Honestly the management at Honua Kai needs to seriously replace Duke's with a more reputable restaurant that is capable of servicing the guests staying on site, so if you are staying and plan on leaving your kids on their own, make sure you make arrangements for them to have a meal as Duke's will not feed them even if they are adults. Another note, there are multiple bbq's on the property for guest use. We were not aware of this prior to arrival, so if you want to hit Costco in Kahalui and pick up some grill food you might be able to save yourself some hard earned cash on a couple of meals--keep in mind the rooms have full kitchens with full size fridges, not mini fridges, so you can stock up a bit too if you are staying for a longer stretch.

Love the Honua Kai

My husband and I stayed at the Honua Kai from Dec. 5 to 12th, 2017. Beautiful hotel and grounds. I did alot of research before selecting this hotel. We wanted beautiful grounds and pools but not a huge resort. We wanted to be right on the beach. I wanted a kitchen, as I'd intended to cook in a couple times. I never did, but the fridge came in handy and we did have cereal for breakfast twice. I am a morning cappuccino addict and generally map distance to the nearest coffee house. The Honua Kai has espresso drinks available in the little store in each tower. Once I discovered the Kaanapali Boardwalk, having ready access to it became a priority. The HK is at the northern end of the boardwalk. I rented through the HK and not on vrbo due to the more flexible cancellation policy. We had a studio facing the ocean. I'd researched the "stacks" of rooms and requested certain stacks and floors that offered good ocean views and had shaded balconies in the afternoons. We got exactly what we requested. The room was beautiful, as was the bathroom. Comfortable bed! Everything clean and sparkling. Loved our balcony! We were in the Konea Tower. From our balcony, we looked out on the fire pit below to the pools to the ocean. At night they'd light the tiki torches... magically beautiful. The HK staff was wonderful. Everyone friendly and helpful. Our bathroom sink drained slowly. I called housekeeping before we went out on day 2; the sink was fixed when we returned. You can rent body boards, snorkels, flippers, etc. from a kiosk near the beach. But the HK also lets guests use them for an hour for free. Since we were right on the beach, an hour worked well for us. And they were quite generous with the hour too. Some of our fave activities were snuba diving, with Aqua Adventures, zip lining upcountry, a tour to Hana (didn't drive ourselves - great decision). We booked everything through the HK concierge; thank you Pete! Also hiked the Coastal Trail from Kapalua. A bit difficult to find but well worth it. Also found Ahihi-Kina'u Natural Reserve near Makenna. Fascinating lava fields that blend into the ocean coral. Our fave restaurants were the Plantation House at Kapalua (#1 fave), the Sea House, Merrimans, Freidas, and Maui Tacos. Got several smoothies and acai bowls at Choice Health Bar in Lahaina. It was an absolutely wonderful week. Thank you, Honua Kai!
