After deciding we wanted to stay the night in Hana, we found there weren't too many affordable options. That being said, Hana Kai, is relatively affordable and well appointed. The condo style apartments are well appointed and extremely relaxing and quiet. We stayed in the studio #106 which was quite large with a very large sized bathroom/dressing area, which came...

The room was comfortable and worked well for the one night we stayed in Hana. The bed was comfortable, bathroom clean with a nice open shower. There was a small kitchen and the lanai was nice with a large table and chairs. We were in the back building and did not have much of a beach view but we knew...

My husband and I stayed in unit 107 for one night. The check in process was efficient and simple. Our room was clean and well-appointed. We had a limited view of the black sand beach, but could easily hear the soothing sounds of the ocean all night long. The check-out process was simple. However, after our return drive over the...

There is little to say except to apologize for this instance. At times, as management we make a judgement call, this one coming after several instances of items missing from our rooms and rethinking our policies a bit. Charging for missing items before confirming with the guest was a mistake but in hindsight even calling a guest at all in...

We stayed for one night in room 204. Everything about the hotel was great. The view, the set up of the rooms, the lanai, the breeze, and the fully stocked kitchen. We walked to the Ranch Store, less than a mile, I think, and bought what we needed for dinner and breakfast the next day. We also walked to Hana...

I researched quite a bit to find accommodation suitable for a family of 4 in Hana. There isn't a great variety but we were really pleased with our choice. This 'hotel' is a collection of studio apartment-type of accomodation. We chose the most expensive option (cabin 3) closest to the beach. It was perfect for 2 adults and 2 young...

I was really nervous about this place but was so happy to find that it was a lovely accommodation with a true Aloha feeling. The reviews are true - the rooms are all different so I'll speak for the one we stayed in, Hana Kai 204: “Waiohinu”. While the views are surely better in the shoreside building, we could still...

We stayed in Unit 203. The view of the black sand beach was spectacular. The room was as shown on the website but starting to show signs of wear up close. Wood rot must be difficult to prevent given the weather and lack of air conditioning. The rooms were always comfortable in temperature. We enjoyed listening to the ocean through...

Unit #203 is one of our most popular units. The owner takes great care of this apartment. Yes, we are in quite a challenging environment....something like maintaining a boat! Our buildings are redwood and built in 1971. Over the past 6 years we have renovated most of our units and completely refurbished the exteriors of both buildings. We are constantly...

The trip to Hana is not for the faint of stomach with its twisting turns so to have a place to stay was great. It's a cute little place with a great view of the beach from the lanai. We were in unit 103, a one bedroom in July. We brought our dinner fixings from a stop at Whole Foods...

My husband and I stayed at the Hana Kai for one night to stretch out the Road to Hana to a 2 day trip. The unit we stayed in, 205, was a studio ocean view room with a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. There are two buildings in this resort. We were in the building in the back...

It's all about location...if you're in the "front" building, it's unobstructed views surnrises and the black stone beach of Hana Bay. Rooms are reasonably appointed and appear to have been freshened recently, however the age does tend to show. Lanais are offset so they are surprisingly quiet, during the day (when everyone is out of the hotel) it's a great...
