This is our fifth time here, and we love it. An amazing location right on the beach at a very reasonable cost. The units are individually owned, but most of them are managed by the resort, which does a great job. We plan to keep coming back. The only thing that I would add to the information in the reviews is advice not to rent a car at the airport. Kihei Car Rental will pick you up, shuttle you to Kihei and rent you a car for about a quarter of the cost in the time it takes to get through the lines at the airport.

Mana Kai was an amazing place to stay! We recently got married here and enjoyed our stay tremendously! We stayed on the 4th floor - ocean side balcony room. I highly recommend this room for a little more money. The doors fully open up - you can fall alseep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean - see the activities below. Great place to have morning coffee. Fullly equpped kitchens made our stay even more cost effective. I can't wait to go back. Great hotel with all the hoopla of a 5 star resort. At least here you can be RIGHT on the ocean with yourown private beach. The only way to go!

Room Tip: Its worth the money to have an ocean side balcony room. Glorious!

Mana Kai resort is very well looked after, in a top location right on the beach, all facilities on site excellent & easy including a mini-mart, Watersports hire on site, loved the Iyengar yoga with Kim to start the day...we took a great deal of care in trying to choose a recently renovated apartment and rented 306 through VRBO. It is exactly as per the photos, very nicely done with quality throughout. Owner Scott was really helpful with suggestions for restaurants etc. Electronic keyless entry handy-no keys to lose & kids could come & go. It's important to note the master bed is part of the living space with panels easily sliding across for privacy if required however we left it open to enjoy the full width of the unit. Brilliant view from living/bed/lanai. We loved it!

I'm writing this review from my lounge chair, listening to the ocean waves and enjoying the view!

I definitely recommend staying here if you want to enjoy the beach! If you're a strictly sit by pool person, this may not be the place for you.

Good snorkeling right from shore here. Happy hour food and drinks at the bar from 3 to 7.

Rooms: we are a party of 8 and are staying in 602 A & B and 603 A & B. The beds are pillowtop, with nice pillows. The B rooms have air conditioning, which is nice for getting ready or blocking out sound, but not really necessary. The A rooms are attached to the living room and kitchen and overlooks the balcony/ocean. The rooms are fully stocked with coffee maker, blender, pots, pans, cups, etc. You can get fresh beach towels whenever you want.

All in all, Mana Kai is great place!

I love this place, but it appears that our owners are cheap. the bathroom door (a pocket door slider) doesn't close fully. no problem, except when we have guests on Sunday. Mentioned to front desk yesterday, but no action. Yeah, I know, island time ... I don't care, fix it. pretty sure it's an owner issue, since the place is kind of rental quality. crappy dishes and cutlery, no napkins, tin foil, saran wrap, cooking oil, spices, etc. we chose this place for the location AND the kitchen; to find it basically filled with the crappiest base stuff tells me the owners never live here.

So, tomorrow i'm talking to management about the bathroom door. if it get's fixed, great. if not, then be warned that this is what happens when you rent a condo owned by a committee and managed locally for owners who only care about assessments and net income. it's all in the details, and they have some work to do.

Room Tip: ask them what extras are provided - cooking stuff, etc. only after an email did I realize that i needed to bring some spices that most other rental places I've been always have (whether left by guests or provided). Higher floors better for view, but the place itself is a great find. Just be vigilent.
