Our view was amazing, room was spacious. We did encounter some problems with our freezer/ice maker, it leaked. No one ever fixed the problem but it was still fabulous!! I believe we were on level 3. Staff was very polite, and courteous. We will come back in march again, due to the Whale Watching was fantastic.

We are timeshare owners at the Sands of Kahana and often trade out for other locations, but always try to get back to the Sands of Kahana at least every other year! This is our peaceful relaxing spot!! We bring our family and friends and have always had a wonderful time! Sands of Kahana has a perfect beach for swimming,...

Give this place a skip. Front desk staff leaves you with the impression that they wish you had never come. The beach is almost nonexistent...sandbags everywhere...to help with erosion...? The best I can say is the unit was spacious with nice views, housekeeping seemed fine, and the on site restaurant was pretty good with a friendly staff. Of course the...

Our family of seven stayed in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo (one King, one Queen, two Full, and one pull-out sofa). The property is older, worn, greatly in need of a renovation, but satisfactory. Our condo had a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, two porches. No air conditioning, just hard-working ceiling fans! Noise from the hallways, elevators, and stairwells spilled...

Booked a 2 week stay through RCI for ourselves, our daughter and grandson. My husband asked for a room with a view and we were accommodated in room 445. Beautiful view of the ocean even though you looked over the bar and pool area. Accommodations are very spacious and well appointed but are very dated and badly in need of...

We exchanged our timeshare for this property. The condo is very large and the master bedroom is separate from the second bedroom, which is nice. I liked having a washing machine and dryer available in the room. Kitchen had all amenities we needed. There is no air conditioning, fans were brought in and it was perfect. While the condo itself...

We love West Maui and Kahana most of all. Sands has a good beach, pool and pool bar - plus fabulous sunsets and near by amenities. Why 4 stars - depends on your room. Upper floor with an ocean view - 6 stars; lower floor with a garden view - meh. The location and the amenities are great regardless, but...

Its really nice staying here in that you have a pool, direct access to the beach, easy parking, and compared to the major hotels I've stayed at the island -- isnt crowded. Would definitely stay here again.

This is time share condo that is on the beach and very good for generational families to vacation. The units are spacious, albeit dated. It doesn't seem to matter. It is well thought, good services, aquatic sporting equipment for rent, and a concierge to assist with activities.
