We were given perhaps the worst unit on the property #113 at the Sands of Kahana. The elevator did not work and there was standing water all around courtyard of the building. When we walked in there was a terrible stale odor that indicated nothing had been deep cleaned for ages. The unit looked directly out over the parking lot...

Great resort to base your trip on Maui. Has everything you might want, great staff, wonderful beach, convenient to all of Maui. We had a front row seat to a lot of whale activity. If you want a beach front resort this is the place to stay.

We are owners here and have been for almost 20 years. We are just finishing 3 weeks here in Maui. The Sands has been a great place for the whole family.

We are in Condo #354, and our view is awesome. We've seen whales every day, and a rainbow this morning. Jose in the restaurant is a delight, and the rest of the staff was friendly too. The condo is very roomy, 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Is this a brand spanking new property? No, but if you want to be right...

Aloha! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are glad you are enjoying your stay. Daily humpback whale sightings make our ocean views even more breathtaking, and the presence of a morning rainbow puts a ribbon on the entire package.

We are sorry you were not satisfied with your visit. We do our very best to fulfill every room request, but as an ocean resort, you can imagine that nearly every request we receive is for an ocean view. This is why we sell rooms based on room size and not on the view. As much as we would like...

Thank you for visiting Sands of Kahana. We are sorry you were subjected to such a poorly maintained unit. Your particular condominium is property managed for a private owner by another company, which makes those parties solely responsible for its care and maintenance. We recommend booking your stay directly through us and staying in one of our immaculately kept units....

Our stay at the Sands exceeded my expectations. Our family of 8 stayed in a 3BR Penthouse. The unit was large & clean. The property, overall, is well kept. The beach was perfect for the kids who range in age from 8 - 16. We rented a paddle board for the week, which I highly recommend. This provided hours of...

We (family of 4) only stayed 4 days at this excelent condo/hotel. We stayed in an apartment (about 150 sq.mts) with very large rooms, 3 bathrooms, very well equipped kitchen and huge living room. The fares are quite high, but it worths.

We stayed in unit #391 in building 3 closest to the ocean. What a view! Our condo was well-equipped and the grounds were beautiful and well cared for. We loved the pool and the hot tub and bobbling in the ocean. We saw sea turtles every day. We will definitely be back. Dollies, across the street, has great pizza.
