Great ocean view ! It was clean and comfortable. Would definitely tell friends to stay there!

Thus hotel is right on the beach. Our patio was wonderful. It's a no frills "timeshare" but everyone was really nice and the location was perfect.

Old Rooms and a not clean bathroom. No good Restaurants near by. Nice Beach. Very friendly Staffel.

The hotel is really close to the beach with a pretty decent size swimming Pool. The only thing is you have to pay extra $27 for having your room clean and their only certain days the guest could have breakfast in which we were not informed about it. Overall nice and friendly staff. This Beach condo looks like a time share properly. The best thing about this properly is that your balcony faces the sunset and its relaxing to have your sliding open at night with the soathing waves.

The condo was nice with a kitchenette, It was right on the beech. The only complaint was the hide a bed was not comfortable at all, but they were able to provide a pad for the bed.

it is very far away from the beaches. Dont choose this.

Kahana Beach is right on the beach and located 10 minutes of Kanapoli resort area. It is much quieter than Kanapoli. It is also a very good spot to see sea turtles and snorkling right outside of the hotel. The staff are very friendly. The room is very clean (I believe it is just remodeled). Best of all, it is much cheaper than those big name hotels.

We stayed one week in April 2012, here are my opinions: Parking: Inadequate. I was not sure if all rooms were occupied but after 9pm we had to park on the public parking strip in between the Kahanas, even on the non-marking spots. I think a car is a must here, so beware if you travel in the high season. Is there a high season? Staff: Minimal but friendly. After hours everything is redirected to the sister/mother hotel next door, that includes re-keying your room should it stop working. You may want to know where it is during the day. Room: Roomy, clean, but old. We stayed at the -01 so not much to write about the ocean view, but we could keep an eye on the rental 7/24. The slider was not shut tight so we heard the wind howling all nights and days. Is it always 20mph, 30mph wind there? Beds: Murphy ok, Sofa springy. We liked it firm so the Murphy was good for us, throw the kids on the pull-out, they don't know any difference. Kitchen: Decently equipped. It served well for quick snacks, left-over, take-outs, etc. Internet: Provided by Time Warner at the cost of $40+/week or $10/day. They provided wired cable so your tablets, phones are out of luck. Of course, you can run to Office Depot for a wireless router but that will be more cost and inconvenience. The Ethernet wire is long but there is no power outlet near the dining table where you most likely set up your laptop. If your battery does not hold a lot of juice, bring a power extension cord. TV/DVD: Good TV line up but no HD content, DVD connection using AV only (but the TV is too small to discern.) Bathroom: Adequate. I like the fact that they put a lot of hangers in the closet unlike most places. Pool, hot tub: Small pool but with a deep end. Did not see many in the pool, ok to play with the kids. Hot tub is of residental size, would be a nice place to see the sunset. Beach: Small. It disappeared in high tide but we stayed during the half moon week so it was sufficient, barely. Even then, at higher tides, strong waves would wet the entire beach, nowhere to hide! The water goes deep quickly so keep your little ones close. If you are a snorkeler, venture out about 50' in about 15' of water where the corals are, there are a lot of stuff to see. I was even surprised by a sea turtle swimming about 4 feet under me at one time. Don't need to pay for a tour. On the other note, there are lots of nice public beaches, some with shower. Town: Lahaina is about 6 miles South with everything you would need (including the above mentioned Office Depot.) Front street is the place to walk. Special note: Not recommend the drive to/from Kahului using the scenic 340 for the faint-hearted. Overall, for the price I would recommend this place but you must have a car.

perfect location, closest hotel to the water on Maui.

The hotel is nice and comfort. The staff is friendly. The room has all kitchen utilities and is very convenient.

The location of the hotel was great - right on the beach, allowing us to listen to the waves at night. It was close to Lahaina, as well as Kahikili Beach and Black Rock, which have good snorkeling. This was my 4th trip to Hawaii, and though service was adequate, I didn't get the same embracing aloha spirit from the hotel staff here. I also specifically requested to be placed in a room with a direct ocean view months prior to my trip, but was disappointed to be placed in one of the side rooms on arrival. I requested a room change and was supposedly placed on a waiting list, but despite inquiring about the room change on each of the first few days of my trip, I never got moved and ended up with the side room during the entire duration of my 1-week stay. Overall however, I think the room was a good deal. There was a small kitchenette with ample supplies, which we didn't use much. There was a small pool and hot tub, which we also didn't use. The parking lot was tight but free. Internet comes at a fee and only works with a cable plug-in (no wireless). The fold-out bed was functional, but far from amazing. Room service was minimal (towel change just once during our week stay). Minimal on complimentary services. The good: location and free parking. The bad: lacking in aloha spirit.

We were placed in a room on the first floor, right next to the conciere's desk. From our room you could hear every conversation, starting at 7:00 AM until 7 PM daily. Couldn't use the lanai due to a sales presentation going on just outside the lanai. Also saw the biggest cockroach i have ever seen. Could not get a different room and was not offered refund.

My husband and I absolutely love the view. Our room was fully equipped with all the necessity for our week long stay. We look forward in coming back to this place.

Oceanview from studio suites. Clean comfortable rooms. Would definitely recommend!

Newly appointed, clean room with fantastic view. Had some freinds over and they were so impressed they tried to book a room for the last few days of their trip but it was sold out.

We didn't get the full ocean view, but we were totally happy with our stay at the Kahana Beach!! Nice view, quiet location, room was clean!! Condo was close to everything we needed. After hours check-in was really easy. We hope to stay there again!!

Had a second floor studio unit with a partial view. Size of the unit was good. Murphy bed needed repair, was very slanted, had to prop it up. Kitchen was small but adequate and clean. Unit was right above the patio that was used for activity orientations, classes etc so it was alittle noisy. Parking was pretty tight but we were able to find a spot each night. Check in staff was polite but not friendly and did not offer much information on the hotel.

Place and room were perfect! Totaly recommend! Recomend to rent a car and go around island. Also try atractions such as surfing and snorkling.

good value. ocean view room with nice AC. sofa bed was awful. one of the front desk clerks was not nice. for under $100 a day, it's a good deal.

Impressive view, love the location and everything we needed was in our room. It's like having our own place during vacation.
