Unfortunately the Honua Kai is no longer any where near the resort it used to be. Carpets in common areas need replacing, the rooms are in need of refurbishment and there are numerous small issues that need addressing (examples: lamps with faulty light switches, properly stocked kitchens and housekeeping quality control). When one considers the rates that this resort charges, be it directly or through 3rd party vacation rentals, you can get much better quality at other condo style resorts on this part of Maui. Oh, and one more thing, pretty much half of the underground parking is unavailable at the Hokulani Tower due to numerous structural jack screws holding up the center portion of tower, this kind of tells you about the attention to detail from the beginning. (I would hate to be an owner of one of these units as they’ve just thrown money into a pit. Make your own conclusions from that as you wish.)

It’s our first morning here and we are sitting on the deck looking at the ocean but to the sound of a jack hammer next door. We weren’t informed of the construction when booking. Big disappointment to the start of our 25th anniversary vacation.

Buyer beware! Hawaii is expensive. It's a given. Costco travel packages to Hawaii will entice you to save money by purchasing their flight/car/hotel packages. Runnnnn! I purchased a Maui package - Hawaiian Air, Alamo car, Honua Kai Resort & Spa. Pros: it's Hawaii! We were given a condo (so we could make breakfast and lunch). washer/dryer in the rooms. Dukes Restaurant (yum). Fruity drinks by the pools ($14-25). Lovely spa. Little market/deli onsite (sandwiches $15-20) and well-stocked gift shop. Bellmen - super helpful. What could go wrong? Cons: Flight was ok, except we got the worst seats on the plane (row 15). No windows, no leg room=claustrophobia for 5.5 hours. I had made the reservations 6 months in advance and asked to have adjoining rooms with my daughter, son in law and 5 year old granddaughter. They put us on different floors (making it hard to coordinate logistics and passing a 5 year old back and forth), then they changed my room the next night (same floor, down the hall). The rooms were beyond disappointing as they were nothing like the photos. These were evidently time share condos that had seen a LOT of wear and tear. Carpets were old and filthy inside and in the halls. Furniture dirty and threadbare. Comforters had small blood (?) spots on them that seemed to increase during our stay. Dishwasher smelled like something had died in it. Cockroaches in the bathroom and under the sink. The "ocean view" room - that we paid extra for - gave us a little glimpse of the ocean if we stood just so on the deck. No housekeeping services for 8 days. We were assigned the same crappy seats for the trip home, and when we tried to change them Hawaiian air said they could not help us because we had “used a third party travel company”. Calling Costco Travel to sort it out was a 2 hour hold. The day before our flight, when we could check in, we were assigned seats all over the plane - including putting our 5 year old in a seat 2 rows away from her mom. Fortunately, once we got to the airport the Hawaiian Air guest services person moved us to two rows so kiddo could be next to a parent. Unfortunately, the cons (and stress) overshadowed the pros and we won't be using Costco Travel again.

Room tip: Don’t book through Costco Travel

I kinda want to give a 4if not less for pool side service but I know how hard staffing is my only complaint is by the pool it’s like so hard to get service we were told Bradley was in charge of our side and Every time Bradley walked by he ignored you even if you waved at him so I had go get our own drinks which is fine I just thought it was super rude to ignore us at least
tell us you will be right back oh and the girl that was helping him deliver his drinks wouldn’t even let him know we wanted to order so he just he misses out on tips and we never ordered food because of it! Kudos to the bartenders! They go above and beyond I believe they have to pick up the slack for laziness!More

We reserved Konea Tower room 214 through Maui Resort Rentals for the entire month of October 2022. This was a beautiful 1 bedroom unit in a great location. The large lanai has a view of the mountains. The room was far enough away from the resort pools to avoid any noise coming from them while being literally a 2 minute walk to Kanapali Beach. There is a beautiful waterfall fountain just outside the unit and the sounds are very relaxing.

This unit has a full sized kitchen and is fully equipped. The room has a very comfortable King size bed and a Queen size pull out sofa. There is a flat screen TV in the living room as well as in the bedroom. Most days we cooked our own food on the induction stove top and using the convection oven. There is also a stackable washer and dryer, iron and ironing board in the unit.

Whenever we needed anything, Maui Resort Rentals was able to supply it for us within the hour (garbage liners, dishwasher detergent, Dawn dish detergent and scrubber sponges, paper towels, Kleenex tissues, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand washing soap).

During our month-long stay we learned a lot by talking with other renters. 1. Units at Honua Kai are managed by different Resort Rental Companies (OutRigger, Maui Resort Rentals and others).
2. This unit is managed by Maui Resort Rentals. This is important because MRR brings the supplies directly to the room while the others make you pick up your supplies from the front desk.
3. MRR also provides use of the towel machines located all around the Resort. The towel machines provide towels for use at the beach and pools so you don't need to bring any towels from the room. OutRigger makes you bring towels from the room or you can pick them up from the front desk.
4. Every Wed there is an art walk at the resort where you can purchase gifts.
5. BBQ grills do not need to be reserved, use when you want to grill something, cleaning when you are done.

We would recommend unit Honua Kai Konea tower room 214 to anyone interested in having a wonderful time in Maui.
