They thought of everything when creating this resort. This is by far the best property Ever!!!

This could be an excellent place to stay if the management didn't stint on the amenities. Our unit had only 4 set-ups, so when we ate in for breakfast and lunch, we had to run the dishwasher to have plates and utensils for dinner. It was worse when we had another couple over as guests. The kitchen wares are of poor quality!

Location was good. Close to beach. Staff at the concierge was not that friendly. Duke restaurant food was alright not the best one. Too expensive but not choice Overall it's 3/5. Thanks

Clean comfortable room. Manicured grounds. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Steps away from the beach.

We liked our room very much and the view from our balcony was very relaxing. The staff was often not present at the front desk for much of the early morning and night which was difficult. They also weren't able to accommodate the late checkout we desired forcing us to switch hotels on the last day. I also felt the resort fee ($29 a night) was pretty expensive and unfortunately didn't include use of beach activity equipment.

Our 2 bedroom Condo was clean and updated. Rooms were picked up daily. Room came with washer/dryer & full kitchen. Coffee shop located in hotel & Dukes restaurant by pools was convenient. Only negatives were dryer kept over heating with only 2 or so items in it. Maintenance fixed it once but it kept kicking off each day after. Also, had to buy chairs for beach or pay $10 for each lounge chair daily.

The only negative thing about the experience was the shower. It felt like needles. Was painful when my skin was slightly burned.

Great resort condominiums. The land scape and grounds were very well kept and vibrant. Pools where excellent but some kids if your not fond of little children. Not very big beach calompared to the ones we see on Oahu. View from our Studio room on 9th floor in the Jones tower was amazing. You could see the ocean from your bed and the whales splashing. Would go again.

Great hotel, nice and big Room, don't have facilities but charge like a Four seasons (Usd1000/day) and because of this should offer more!

It was a lot of fun for myself and my 2 kids. One of our best vacations ever.

This is a very nice resort with great amenities. Beautiful pool area with areas for both adults and children. The only weakness is the concierge desk whose main goal is to selll activities thus not very helpful or cordial if just asking for local information. Everything else was superb but did notice a lack of hospitality with these staff members.

Bed very comfortable but poor lighting in the bathroom for putting makeup on.

This hotel was perfect for our little family (Mom, Dad and a 20 month old). It was great being able to throw in a load of laundry when needed and cook meals in the room. The pools were great (although a little cold at times!) and the location of the hotel was perfect.

unfortunately, the rooms were never cleaned, we had to ask for fresh towels. Furthermore, they did not give us a wheelchair to go to the pool, but only to go to the room and back to the lobby...

We had a great honeymoon here. There were some minor cleanliness issues in our room, but they were for the most part handled. Outside of that, we thoroughly enjoyed the resort. The staff was top notch. The valet guys get extra points for friendliness and helpfulness! The grounds and view from our room were beautiful. The pools are fun and varied. The other guests were family oriented and nice. The best beach we found in our time there was steps from the resort grounds, so big win there. Great to have Duke's right there. It's just a great place for a true Hawaiian getaway. We will be back for our anniversary!

The hotel is overpriced for the quality of accommodations and overall experience. Outside of having a few pools which aren't that well maintained, it doesn't really cater to a great family vacation destination. The reviews we saw before going described it as wonderful and it didn't meet those expectations for the money spent at Honau Kai

This is now our first choice hotel when we vacation in Maui. WOW! What a lovely place! Full kitchen, washer/dryer (with free detergent)....everything was perfect. Can't wait to come back!

I planned a birthday trip to Maui for my family and friends. We had a large party at the hotel. The rooms were really nice. We decided to purchase groceries and each room would host a night. The kitchens were well equipped. The bedroom and bathroom was really nice and spacious. The pool area is nice and they had BBQ grills and sitting areas outside, which we took advantage of as a group. I wish that the beach was nicer. We spent more time at the pool because it was more accessible.

This hotel is newer, clean, has nicely appointed kitchens and baths, and has a pleasant staff. We had two issues: 1-the pools are too few and too small for the number of guests they are meant to accommodate and 2-our room had a peekaboo ocean view though it was called a partial ocean view. To see the ocean, you must be standing on the balcony looking over trees and between 3 other buildings, or hanging off the edge of the balcony in another direction. Our room number was 538 in the Konea building and we booked a partial ocean view (the best view available for a 1 bedroom). Upon check in, we immediately requested a correction in room location and offered to take a studio if it had a true ocean view. They were not able to give us an answer on our request until the following day and were not able to accommodate what they had sold us online. We were travelling with a 6 month old infant and knew we would be spending a lot of time in the room because of him. The view was very important to us when booking and we are disappointed with how this was advertised.

Staff are nice and friendly. They provide you with anything you need. Rooms are very comfortable and nice. This would be a nice hotel for families with children. If you are a couple with no kids, this won't be a romantic quiet hotel. There are 3 pools and kids are every where. There is no adult only pool.
