    Can't Wait to Go Back!

    We had the BEST time in unit 344 and at Honua Kai Resort, renting with KBM Resort Rentals, through Air BNB. We will definitely come back for a family visit. The unit came with essentials needed for the beach, all the comforts of home to be able to relax and cook and do laundry, and clear instructions on checking out. The resort staff were very helpful in getting luggage/groceries to our room and answering any questions we had. My only "other than positive" thought is that I would not consider what the resort lists as a Lazy River, to be what I know a lazy river to be. It doesn't move at all. That being said, all the pools are fabulous. We never had a hard time finding lounge chairs, towels were always available, and access to the beach was so easy. Dukes was phenomenal for pool side service and dining in.

    So happy we booked here!

    I'm really glad we booked this hotel after checking out some of the options in Maui, getting overwhelmed, and just booking and hoping for the best. Our suite is more spacious than I thought it would be, and the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedding are all updated. Our balcony is great- table, lounging chairs, etc. The grounds, pools, and parking are all well kept. The shop has all the essentials, which makes life easy! The restaurant is also an easy choice with great beach views, and enough variety for us. Easy beach access and a long walking trail along the beach.

    JUST ok…not great

    This place is just ok. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s sort of like a hotel in that there is a nice pool, but that’s basically where the hotel feel ends. It operates completely like a condo complex, which it is. It is VERY confusing and also VERY weird, that, depending on who manages the particular condo you rent, depends on what color towel you get at the pool (blue vs white). Like seriously…who cares? Just give everyone the same color towel. It looks very cheap having multiple color towels. Our unit, Konea building #207 was fine. again, nothing more nothing less. It’s plenty big (family of 5) and well equipped with dishes, glasses, etc. there is ZERO housekeeping services. So don’t expect your room to be cleaned, trash to be taken out, towels to be changed, etc. it’s 100% up to you to do it. It’s located in an ideal location right in the mix of all other resorts , right on the beach. There is a Times supermarket conveniently located across the street and a food truck park next door. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here as a family as long as you know that you’re basically staying in a condo and NOT a full service hotel. If you’re not a family staying here with kids, I WOULD NOT recommend this place. Stay at a nice resort and take advantage of resort amenities.

    Wonderful place to stay

    We had a wonderful stay, the rooms were very clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The views from our room were spectacular. We could see whales and rainbows from our deck. The swimming pools and hot tubs were clean and well laid-out. We never had a problem finding poolside chairs. The beach out in front of the resort and down to Black Rock is very nice and deep sand. The sand extends down into the water a few feet and then the bottom is mostly reef. This means that if you are a snorkeler, you will love it, because you can snorkel right out in front of the hotel and all the way down to Black Rock while seeing a great assortment of beautiful tropical fish and even a sea turtle or two. We also saw a seal within ten feet of the shore, but only for a few seconds. If you want a better place to have the kids running around in the sand without any reef, just walk down the beach closer to Black Rock and you will find it all sand out deep as well as in the shallows. We also snorkeled out and around Black Rock where the reef is steep and deeper, and saw even more great fish and quite a few sea turtles. We ate at Dukes restaurant several times and the food and staff were wonderful. Watching whales surface while eating breakfast and planning our day's adventure with the family was priceless. I hope to come back soon!
