We have been coming to Makani Sands since our daughter was 2 years old she is now 12 . We absolutely love coming here. Great beach the views are amazing but my all time favorite is seeing the honu's I just love to watch them swim. If your looking for a kid friendly place then Makani sands is your place.:)

This place is a great place to wind down. Quiet, close to shops and restaurant's and we also have a visitor every time we arrive. The view is to die for. We also are lucky to be able to see whales in front of this condo. I also get a great night sleep with the comfortable bed in this condo....

Fish tacos! Well prepared, delicious. The waiter was excellent, willing to adjust the menu. Hula pie, a must on any visit. This is a great restaurant. Location...on the beach. Go at sunset. Good service. It's not cheap but you won't go wrong on this place. We will be back.

My wife and I stayed at Makani Sands in a three-bedroom apartment with our two daughters, one of our daughter's husband and our grand daughter in October this year. One of our daughter's had booked the apartment well in advance of our arrival so the cost of our five-night stay was reasonable. The apartment block is right on the ocean...

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Makani Sands #203 for a 5 night vacation in November. The complex is older and not in one of the main resort areas, but it’s a great option for an affordable stay with direct ocean front view and a small sandy beach for easy water entry. The unit itself is very...

The views from 202 & seeing sea turtles up close on the beach were highlights of this trip to Maui. The weather was unusually hot and humid, with no trade winds, which made this business trip that required much outdoor walking challenging and physically demanding. Thankful for Makani Sands as a little oasis of relaxation and enjoyment. The decor was...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week. It's in a great location. Close to everything and a little farmers and coffee shop within walking distance. We had unit 208 which had an updated kitchen but not updated bathroom. Which means the bathroom is quite dated. Each unit is privately owned so you can't really go by the pictures....

We stayed at Makani Sands #309 for 8 nights. We were a group of 8 (max occupancy), but it did not feel crowded. Our kids chose to sleep on the floor (carpeted--kind of rare in a tropical location, but welcome), so we did not utilize the pullout sofa. Had we done so, there would have been enough beds for all....
