Stayed for two short nights in a 1 bedroom unit and loved it so much I just stayed in the unit and only left to go out to eat. The view is the most spectacular on an amazing beach with lots of great activities including snorkeling, paddle boarding and of course swimming. The units are beautifully done with all the... More

I have stayed there many times since the 70's. Great location and beach is good for swimming and snorkeling. Sunsets are magnificent! Five Palms restaurant has a good happy hour. Rooms are varying in price based on if they have been renovated. I would return.

We spent a wonderful week at the Mana Kai (Sept 26-Oct 2) in 402A. The condo decor is dated but the room location was perfect with an amazing view of the ocean and beach. It didn't hurt that the weather cooperated the entire stay so that we could enjoy water activities and the beach. The room was quite comfortable with... More

Mahalo for you review. Some of the rooms here are in the remodeling process this year and next. The owners of 402 have put it on the market for sale and are not remodeling it, but the location closer to the ocean is excellent. See you the next time you're on Maui. Aloha More

We stayed at the Mana Kai Maui from Sept 12-16, 2016 in Room 402.

Mahalo for your excellent review of the property and amenities. We do have one of the greatest locations on the island and so close to the ocean.

I could rate this hotel higher because the staff was pleasant and the grounds, location and presentation were very nice. However, there are some rooms that you just don't want, and I had one of them.

Our sincere apologies for the condition of your room. I will research with our Executive Housekeeper to find out what happened. What you are describing about the view and parking is a hotel type room 514B. I was happy you enjoyed our location and services with the exception of housekeeping, which is not how we operate.
