Concierge are jerks, deceived us, and refused to make it right. Feels like getting dragged off United Airlines. You'd think they'd do at least something to try to make their customers happy when they make a mistake.

We stayed in a studio unit at the Kahana Beach Resort while we were in Maui last month. We did a RCI exchange with some Hilton points. Based on the resort description and pictures from the internet, we went there with a somewhat low expectation thinking this is probably just another dated place like the ones we stayed before. We...

Aloha, Anne! Thank you for visiting Kahana Beach and taking the time to share your wonderful review. We are pleased we exceeded your expectations. As you discovered, our beachfront resort offers breathtaking ocean views and spectacular sunsets that are truly marvels to behold. Throw in some dolphins and a few turtles and you're likely never to forget the experience. Thanks...

All rooms have an ocean view with a private beach. The resort amenities include the basics and the Murphy bed is not the greatest however the ocean view makes up for everything. The beach house restaurant next door at the Kahana Sands is definitely a must during your visit.

The staff that work here are truly great. The check-in process was smooth and easy, the concierge services are top-notch with great deals on local attractions, and the maintenance staff are also cool. The location is nice too; you're right on the beach with easy access if you want to take a dip in the ocean or take a walk...

We stayed at Kahana Beach Resort as RCI members. The best part of this stay was the spectacular view from our studio suite and lanai. Not sure if there would be any other place on the island where you could be this close to the water and be able to watch whales spouting, breaching, and flapping tails right from your...

We were staying at the property across the street and it didn't work out so we ended up here. Our group had to separate but the room was still much better. It overlooked the ocean. It was a great view! You can hear the ocean all night. The room we had was a studio so it was quite small -...

So we did love our stay here, and I would strongly recommend this place for travelers on a budget/not looking for a resort experience. The beachfront location and view from the rooms is simply unmatched in this price range. Having that said... there were -a lot- of small/minor issues with our stay that made this a 3/5 rating instead of...

We stayed here for two weeks and we were blown away by the view. The ocean laps the wall beneath you. The staff was very accommodating and had that sincere Aloha spirit.
