“Nice one night stay for 2 couples”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Stayed just one night with another couple, our friends who live in Kihea. Our condo was comfortable, and gave us a good night rest and a great breakfast (if I do say so myself!) before we headed down to the Kipahulu area of Haleakala National Park, for a hike on the Pipiwai trail, through the bamboo forest to the beautiful waterfall.

The staff was helpful and efficient, and our condo was comfortable enough. For 2 couples splitting the cost, it was reasonably priced too.

We left a lovely peaceful condo in Lahaina in Maui to visit the other side of the Island and we stayed at the Hana Kai. We could have rented a cottage for $135, but thought we would pay the extra $255/nt in hopes of quality. We booked before we left Canada with our email address that was attached to our blackberry. They had flash floods and when we tried to access the Hana Kai we could not as the road was closed. We went back to town and had to ask around if there was an alternative route, luckily there was. Upon check in we asked why we had not been notified that the road was closed.......the response was ...."oh well we tried to email people, did you not get an email?" No we did not - holding up our blackberry -- our room was clean except there was mold in the ceiling in the bathroom. And this was our worst experience regarding accommodation for us for noise. They facility has reasonable quiet time (10pm-8am) but it really does not matter the walls and ceilings between the units are paper thin and you can hear everything that goes on above/beside you -- we were in unit 102 -- the people above us started dragging their chairs, back and forth, and walking back and forth at around 5:30am. That was just the start, then the housekeeping staff started talking right outside our door around 8am (the front door is a screened door with shutters on it)....not very quiet.

We did mention all of the above to the Manager and she said "Oh I am really sorry to hear that". But yet they have a journal in the bedroom and every 2nd or 3rd page says exactly what we have stated here.

This was a disappointment for the amount of money they charge.

They might be wise to invest in some insulation.

Every condo here is different, but the view from #4 is spectacular. This one-bedroom is on the corner of the front building, and it has a panoramic view of the crescent-shaped bay. We spent the day on the private balcony with a bottle of wine and snacks.

We visited a couple beaches around Hana, but we agreed none of them was a pretty as the view from our room.

So we stayed another night, moving to room #2. Another stunning view and plenty of privacy.

It's expensive here, naturally, but remember you are paying for the view. That said, make sure to book one of the oceanfront rooms, not one of those in the second building.

We took an overnight trip to Hana and its surrounds from Kapalua (6 hour drive each way with a few stops), and stayed at the Hana Kai Maui condos rather than the extremely expensive Travaasa resort. The service was good; accommodation comfortable; but condo furnishings were old and tired. At $250/night for a 1-bedroom unit, it seemed a little pricy.

We booked a condo here back in January, for March 9th. Our family was really looking forward to our 1 night stay in Hana. We wanted to take our time to explore Hana and the drive to Hana. Well, on March 8th, late in the evening, much to our dismay, they closed the road to Hana due to all the rain; there was flash flooding and rock slides. We we unable to go. We called Hana Kai in the morning and they knew that the roads were closed so they gave us a full refund on our condo. I wasn't sure if we would get a full refund or any refund at all, just because some (most) hotels have the policy of once they get your money they've got it. It really helped with our trip to not have to put out extra cash for a night in Lahaina. Even though, we didn't get to stay here, I highly recommend it. Great service! Thank you so much. On our next trip, we will be staying here! We did make a day trip out to Hana a few days later and the grounds of the hotel looked very nice.
