Omg we rented the penthouse, and loved it. Only if I could have taken this mirror home. Rooms were nice sized. 3 king beds, and there was 5 of us. The beach is right across the streetWould definitely book again.

I had a great experience staying at this place. I was treated very well by the staff and loved the room. Tevite took great care of us and even went out of his way to ensure we had a pleasurable stay. The room itself was very cozy and clean. The beach is also within walking distance which makes this hotel that much of a better place.

I will never forget my stay with you. Sadly this will be for the bad reasons. I was given a room with no working AC that the receptionist / manager knew of its current state. (There was a portable ac put in place that could not handle the room size). Then they switched us to a room that was not the category we paid for nor did they wanted to refund me for the downgrade. Then they switched us to a room infested with ants and no hot water. I needed to cancel at that point. There are cheaper and better hotels than this location for sure (I learned that the bad way). They are not prepared to meet the demand on crowded seasons. The worst part is that when I told "the manager" that I was going to give them a bad review on the G search engine. They hinted that they did not care since the owner of the hotel works for the G company. (Again hinting that they could do something about bad reviews). I guess they are doing something since they do have good reviews on this platform. If you are reading this considering to stay here I advice you "THIS HOTEL IS EVEN WORSE THAN SLEEPING IN YOUR OWN CAR OR A PARK” and if you are the owner of this hotel and you are reading this, you should do something about your staff giving away your personal information.

We live in Pukalani (Maui) and I wanted to take my wife out for an overnight date sans kids. I saw Kohea Kai in Kihei (we like Kihei) online and the price was reasonable compared to a lot of other rentals so I reserved a room. The outside was not fancy but when we walked into the room we were both very pleasantly surprised at how much we liked it; the A-frame vaulted ceiling, the little balcony. and it was really clean. I would have enjoyed a week there and I recommend it to anyone wanting to be close to the beach without needing to be close to the most popular beaches (just a mile or two down the road). Just a few steps to a nice beach.
