This condo/hotel is in an awesome location right on the beach. The room was nice and their staff was friendly and helpful. You can rent snorkel equipment and paddle boards on site. Yoga classes are available too. We would stay here again.

We've been visiting Mana Kai Maui for 33 years. It is our #1 favorite place to kick back! We took full advantage of the happy hour menu at the 5 Palms restaurant on the ground floor. We also ate breakfast there on several occasions. We will continue visiting this place at least once a year as long as we can...

I LOVE this property!! The Mana Kai Maui is on the best secret beach on Maui. Snorkeling is amazing around the coral and does not require swimming far into the ocean. The beach is never crowded and has amazing views.

We stayed here last July in a 2 bedroom condo #511 to celebrate my husband and my 11 year anniversary (we were married in Maui - it's our third trip). First, each condo from my understanding is individually owned. Some have been renovated. Ours was renovated and had a great AC system (very important). Also, some are hotel rooms without...

Thank you for taking your time to write this review. The home owners association determines the cost of the tokens for washer and dryers. We know these costs are comparable to laundry mats in our area. The waiter in 5 Palms is correct that they do not have a license to serve alcohol in the pool area. If they did,...

This property has top notch accommodation ( lovely to sleep with the waves lapping beside your bed) well supplied unit, great beach( especially for the kids - shallow and not to rough) good pool.

There is not a better spot to be in on Maui, and not a better condo for two than Mana Kai Maui #501A. This carefully engineered and fully equipped little condo is perfectly situated directly on the ocean. Thundering surf lulls you to sleep. And your days are filled with gentle beach and surf-side walks both north and south. If...

I recently stayed in unit 202; I have stayed at Man Kai several times in the past, but this is the first in this unit. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. The unit is located at the end of the building closest to the beach. In fact, the beach is only about 70' from the lanai. This is good...

Mahalo for your review. It is true wifi reception is spotty in the B or Hotel type room. Within the next 90 days the Board of Directors has authorized wifi modems in each room and DVR's. The cable company will order the equipment soon and we are told 6-8 weeks for the equipment to arrive. Our staff cannot do anything...

The hotel is located on the very end of Keawakapu beach so access is close and easy. The beach itself is very nice with good swimming and snorkeling.

Mahalo for writing this review. I will pass on your review to the owner of the restaurant and lounge. Maui does have a public transportation bus, which is very reasonable. I believe you can ride from Kihei to Lahaina for $2.50. The property does have a quarterly treatment for insects, but situated in the tropical climate, we address the issue...
