I felt like I was taken care of from the start. The staff went above and beyond. Even when I locked myself out at 1 am. The staff really made it for me. But the place was also really cozy and comfortable. I slept like fat happy Baby everynight.

Outstanding hotel, location and staff. The hotel was very beautiful and located close to everything. The staff was helpful and amazing. The beach across the street was beautiful so we’re the grounds of the hotel. The rooms are huge and perfect for families.

We had a wonderful time here and the staff was amazing. There was an issue with our plumbing (it happens...) that was handled very well and quickly. The breakfast was outstanding and Tevita was awesome! JERRY JERRY JERRY! The central location is perfect: can easily drive to all places on the island since it is right in the middle and beach sunsets are amazing right across the street. We would love to come back soon!

This resort is conveniently placed in Kihei. Our Junior Suite was pleasant, quiet and well-sized. The bathroom was large and the walk-in shower was nice. The gardens are lovely and they have a gazebo, picnic areas, a small swimming pool and a hot tub. Breakfast is offered every moring and the "Breakfast Guy" is very entertaining and helpful with information on the area. He was the best thing about the resort and we liked him very much. The food was very good, with fresh tropical fruits among the other offerings. Their is a nice beach across the street.

We wanted to check out the Kihei area so we chose the Kohea Kai Maui due to it being across the road from the beach. The basket with water and treats was a nice welcome. The hot breakfast was really good and is above your typical continental breakfast; loved the flavored syrups. The room was clean and the grounds were lush. Only wish we didn't have to use a pull out couch for our kiddos. Even though it is located on a really busy street, the walls were thick enough (cement blocks) to block out traffic noise.
