We booked the "hard hat" special for unit HH814 and I am sorry we did, it would be worth it to pay more!! Construction begins around 6:15 and continues until 5pm, 7 days a week as apparently due to the wet winter, they are behind schedule and are trying to get the project done on time. It is not just...

The check in process was less than ideal as the clerk was rather rude and disorganized - not as welcoming as other places we stayed in Hawaii. Overall the resort seemed to be very crowded with families and many children. The pool, hot tubs etc were overwhelmed with children at all hours. Overall the room was clean, modern and well...

We had a 2 bedroom ocean view room that was great We could watch the whales in the distance from our balcony. We loved the property and having Dukes restaurant on site was an added bonus.We would definetly go back to Honua Kai!

MY wife and and our daughter and her fiancé stayed her for 5 days in November 2016. Lots of rain, which was a bummer, but the resort was very nice. We made the most of the hours of sunshine and still had a good time, included some great dining.

We stayed at the Hona Kai resort in Lahaina. We were in Suite 725. This was absolutely gorgeous place to stay. Our room was on the 7 floor and our lanai overlooked the ocean. We were able to see the whales breach, the sunset and enjoy people watching. The suite was a 3 bedroom, 3 bath. It was clean and...

This is an exceptional place that offers something for everyone. A private rental through tiredoftherain.com was both beautiful and restful - the bed was divine. There are an assortment of pools and a restaurant on site with other great places to eat not far, and grocery stores nearby. A long boardwalk follows the beach, and activities are everywhere - snorkelling...

I surprised my wife with a trip to Maui to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversay, and decided to stay at Honua Kai. Best decision I've made in a while. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The buildings and grounds are well maintained and the pools are fantastic. We spent more time there than we expected. We stayed in a studio...

I spent 5 nights in one of their resort view rooms in Jan. This resort has an amazing location and HUGE balconies with tables set up outside. We really enjoyed the in suite washer/dryer and full kitchen. The SPA was incredible here and very reasonable. The Duke's bar and restaurant was convenient and had a good happy hour. For anyone...

We rented 639 in the Konea building and loved our trip. It had a wrap around lanai and great views of the ocean and pools. We were able to see whales from the couch. Times grocery store is within walking distance and we loved the easy underground parking. This is definitely a family resort. Lots of great pools for kids!...

We split our time between a studio at Honua Kai and the Grand Wailea using Costco Travel. We were assigned room 737 in the Hokulani building. This unit had an ocean view from the living room and the lanai and was spotless. Leaving the lanai doors open at night we were able to fall asleep to the sound of the...
