My husband and I have stayed at the Sands of Kahana twice - in March2012 and April 2013. It is a very nice property (disclaimer: we do own two timeshare weeks herel). I have read the reviews on trip advisor and I agree that some units need upgrading but they are working on that. The staff are very good. I...

Visited the Sands of Kahana in May of 2013 to celebrate a milestone anniversary in our family. The large accommodations met our needs and the resort pools and wide beach area added something for everyone. The location is walking distance to the Maui Brewing Company which is a good thing if you have one too many Kona coffee beers. Other...

Loved the space and the ocean view! Didn't have a problem with the unit not having AC as we had the fans running and the doors open to the ocean constantly. It was great having a kitchen and the beach was lovely. Also a very nice pool! Loved staying here!

Oceanfront views from this resort are awesome.The sunsets were spectacular. Below you is the pool area. A real center of activity throughout the day. Quiet time after 10:00 pm was always observed. Nice to be able to have the widows opened to get some fresh air through. Place is a little dated but it was clean and comfortable. Any room...

Recently purchased a timeshare at the Sands of Kahana my family and I visited the 2nd half of July 2013. I was somewhat hesitant with the fact the complex doesn't have a/c. We were on the 4th floor with an ocean view and in the evening we had a pleasant breeze which kept the unit comfortable. To hedge my bet...

We stayed there beginning 8/21, and it was a disaster right from the beginning. The elevator broke twice and we were on the 5th floor!! The lack of AC was a problem during the day when the sun was beating down on the skylights(w/no sliding shade). We did see the ocean through 2 spots between another condo in front of...

Think twice about staying at Sands of Kahana. Of course, there are benefits and shortcomings for most vacation properties, but it seems that the shortcomings stand in the way of any benefits at this particular property. First of all, this place is tired - very very tired. If one can spend the money to rent a condo on the island...

I believe that one of the top concerns from potential travelers is the lack of AC to all units but guess what it's not needed here. The developer smartly designed the 4 buildings to where the trade winds or breezes enters every room when the blinds are partly open. Also, open the doors going to the lanai and you're set....

Checked in for two weeks as a trade in through Interval International. Chose this place because it was located on the ocean. However the ocean views must be reserved for owners and other types of rentals. We got the "mountain view" which also could be called the parking lot/road view. The master bedroom is located off the balcony with a...

I would highly recommend this place, it's very spacious and right on the ocean. The clanking staff does not bother u and only comes in once a week to change towels, which is personally what I enjoy.
