Stay here EVERY time we visit Maui. All rooms are on the ocean and have ocean and mountain views. Condos have full kitchens and most are outfitted with everything you need to cook meals. We prefer the rooms 601, 701 and 801 because they are the end units nearest the beachfront.....but all rooms have a great view. There is a...

I will now and forever defend the Mona Kai. We have been staying here for over 35 years. Yes being around for so long making so many great family memories, everything shows sign of age every now and again. (just like people, we all could use a tune up) Even when there is a little hiccup (like needing up grades)...

We've been staying at the Man Kai for 5 years and will keep going back! You can't beat the location. Some condos are newly renovated and others are not but all are clean, enjoyable and have a perfect view. The beach is right outside your door and has some snorkeling. The 5 Palms restaurant has a great (and long!) Happy...

My wife and I stayed at the Mana Kai for a few days in July 2016 and enjoyed it very much. The vista from our room or on the beach was picturesque with Molokini and Kahoolawe in the distance and swaying palm trees on the beach...its really a beautiful, peaceful setting. The associated Five Palms restaurant is very good and...

Nice little resort. Friendly staff, security on site and close to everything. Great lawn to watch the sunset and relax on. We saw turtles on shore and had an overall good time. Cons-some rooms are under construction and laundry is expensive.
