The hotel rooms in the Mana Kai Maui have great views southward down the beach and the rooms themselves are nice, with kitchens and balconies, but not spacious. We had no sound issues from neighbors or the beach or restaurant (5 Palms) below us, despite being light sleepers who can be disturbed by noises in the night. The staff are...

Mahalo for taking your time to write this review. Good to hear you were not affected by any noise issues, I have had guests remark that the waves hitting the sand was too loud. Yes, the majority of the time there is only one clerk on duty. As you know we don't have any resort fees, we have free wifi,...

This is probably the sixth time we visited the Mana Kai Maui. We've always found it to be a great family hotel. Can't beat the location, pool and grounds. Try the happy hours at The 5 Palms. Love the sushi and half price drinks. Snorkeling is great out front and we did lots of boogie boarding with some good surf.

We recently stayed at Mana Kai in Apt. 608. What a wonderful spot! Greg and Lori were great to work with and very focused on customer service and making sure everything was to our liking.

We stayed in a 2 BR superior so we got the 1 BR condo plus the adjoining hotel room, which are connected through the condo's foyer.

Mahalo for writing a good review. Yes, we try to tell everyone to try and do water activities before 11 am as the trade winds normally are stronger then.

I would have given this unit 4 stars, but my nightly rests were severely hampered by a very old and worn out king mattress that one might expect in a cheap 1 star motel.

We were on the sixth floor. Incredible view. Spent a lot of time on the beach. We went snorkeling ever day. The underwater views were incredible. Not much of a tide to deal with. Plenty of room for the whole family.

Mahalo for your great review. We are happy we met and exceeded your expectations. We are fortunate to have the location right on the Keawakapu Beach. Snorkeling in front of the property is a bonus, but you can also kayak and paddle board as well. We hope to see you the next time you're on Maui. Aloha
