Is the sewer plant smell still an issue? That could be a deal breaker for me. Honest answer please.

We were there in August and had no issues with sewer odors around the property. However, There was a bad odor coming from the trash chute room and we would smell it in the corridor each time we passed the trash room. Hopefully management has improved at washing down the trash chute and cleaning the trash room better. Other than that we thought the property was outstanding and we go there again. Make sure to ask for a room away from the trash room.

We were there September 2017 and had a wonderful time. There were no sewer smells at that time. We are going again next year. I wouldn't go back if the area smelled like sewer!

Very occasional. The resorts ammenities far exceeds the occasional wafting smell that passes quickly. We have had such a lovely stay, and will return each year!

Went in August and had zero issues. I know they were planning on some work on the pools/property so maybe double check with that. But the sewer thing seems like a non-event for 99% of people that stay.

We are there now and get a whiff of it every day. Many times a day. There are definitely times we don’t smell it. But it is definitely still a concern. I

The treatment plant is located nearby. The occasional smell is not limited to just honua Kai. Depending on the wind, any of the resorts in the area could smell the treatment plant. We have gone to honua Kai the last 5 years and I can honestly tell you that we have smelled the plant on a couple of occasions.

Sewer smell??? I've stayed at Honua Kai for years and never smelled anything remotely like a sewer. I heard several years ago some septic system failed somewhere north but it never affected us or the beach.

I was not aware of any sewer or I would have mentioned it in my review. Hope that helps. Frank
