Do not stay in one of the hotel units. Room is clean and fairly comfortable but ..poor to no internet despite complaints to three different front desk staff. Staff doesn't seem to know or care. Room small and very dark even when drapes open Must keep blackout drapes closed if lights on because walkway is in front of window. No...

Mahalo for your review. It is true wifi reception is spotty in the B or Hotel type room. Within the next 90 days the Board of Directors has authorized wifi modems in each room and DVR's. The cable company will order the equipment soon and we are told 6-8 weeks for the equipment to arrive. Our staff cannot do anything...

The hotel is located on the very end of Keawakapu beach so access is close and easy. The beach itself is very nice with good swimming and snorkeling. The building is equipped with a water equipment rental store so you can partake in other activities such as kayaking and boarding. In addition to the surf shack there is also a...

Mahalo for writing this review. I will pass on your review to the owner of the restaurant and lounge. Maui does have a public transportation bus, which is very reasonable. I believe you can ride from Kihei to Lahaina for $2.50. The property does have a quarterly treatment for insects, but situated in the tropical climate, we address the issue...

The view is incredible,location fantastic, beds comfy, We stayed in 508, above the pool which did not present a problem. The beach is fantastic-sandy to the left, black lava to the right. We saw sea turtles as we snorkeled the reef right in front of the condo. Happy hour at 5 Palms is a must. Tracy at the events desk...

We rented a 2 bedroom condo, which is relatively small compared to other condos in Kihei. The rooms are just average and nothing special, they do all face the beach and being right in front of the beach makes up for it. It's also tucked away from the rest of Kihei at the very south end which is nice and...

Mahalo for your review. Our beachfront location and proximity to the beach is certainly one of the reasons why visitors stay with us. Last year we remodeled 14 units, this year we will do 12 more. New furniture was installed in the majority of the rooms as well. After the rooms were furnished and remodeled, yes prices increased. Thank you...

We loved that the beach was just footsteps from the lobby. Enjoyed early morning and late evening walks on the beach. It was never overly crowded and always peaceful. The employees were all very kind and helpful. Beautiful scenery and sunsets. Our room was quiet and peaceful.

Went here to strew some cremains in the ocean- everyone was absolutely understanding and full of aloha spirit. The gardener even gathered plumeria blossoms for me to place in on the water. Staff was so professional and wonderful. Going back again this year-

We rented unit 503 a 2 BR condo at Mana Kai Maui in Kihei in January 2016. We booked it from the owner via VRBO. The Mana Kai has units that are owned by individuals as well as some owned by the resort. The decor of the units varies. Some are high end - some are more hotel quality. The...

Unit 503 is a beautifully appointed condo. Although it is not managed by the on site rental program, it has many returning guests requesting to stay in it. You've found your piece of paradise on Maui, come back and visit again. Aloha

The condo we stayed at was a little dated but very comfortable we really liked the convenience of having a restaurant/lounge on main floor as well.

You'll want to leave your patio door open all night so you can hear the waves breaking. That sound will gently lull you to sleep and the birds will wake you in the morning. The Mana Kai is directly on the water, a few steps to the beach. Beautiful views from your lanai and a convenient location near mid Kihei...

Mahalo for writing a great review. A funny story as some guests have asked if there was any way to turn down the surf noise, we said yes, close the patio doors, lol. We are most fortunate to have this beach front location and so close to the beach as well. Thank you for your comment and recommendation to those...
