We stayed here for one week during Spring Break this year. We had a lovely time. We booked a 3-bedroom (on the 3rd floor) which accommodated 5 adults and 5 kids (3 teenagers and 2 little ones). There are elevators so we had no problems getting our luggage up. The unit was spacious with ample room to be off to...

I exchanged my timeshare for a week at the Sands of Kahana, We exchanged for a one bedroom. We were given room 414 in building one which overlooked another hotel. We later found out that if you want a view of the ocean you need to exchange for a two or three bedroom unit. The room was very comfortable with...

We had a first floor unit with one bedroom in Building 4. The area was spacious. No air conditioning - but well ventilated. The kitchen was well appointed, and had everything we needed (we prepared most meals on sight.) Outdoor gas grills were also available and there is a restaurant onsite. The stackable washer/dryer was a great asset. Front desk...

Stayed as a timeshare exchange in one bedroom suite. Full kitchen, separate bedroom and nice deck. Nice beach, but not Kaanapali. Try and get ocean view room, otherwise you are looking at backside of property or into condos next door. Great koi pond with very big koi fish, quite nice to look at. They have exercise rooms and tennis courts...

We sayed at Sands of Kahana over spring break and we were very disappointed to walk in and it was nothing like the pictures!

We were given perhaps the worst unit on the property #113 at the Sands of Kahana. The elevator did not work and there was standing water all around courtyard of the building. When we walked in there was a terrible stale odor that indicated nothing had been deep cleaned for ages. The unit looked directly out over the parking lot...

Great resort to base your trip on Maui. Has everything you might want, great staff, wonderful beach, convenient to all of Maui. We had a front row seat to a lot of whale activity. If you want a beach front resort this is the place to stay.
