We've been to Maui 5 or 6 times, and have stayed at the Mana Kai Maui #314 for the last two. I will never stay anywhere else! Unit #314 is beautiful and has a fabulous view! This is the first time we've visited during the winter, and we were able to do whale-watching from our lanai! We took advantage of...

I stayed at Mana Kai in 2010 and was very impressed with the accommodations. We had a 1 bedroom superior deluxe room. The professional photos on the site were accurate according to the room we stayed in. I travelled with my mother and her friend so I was on the pull out couch in the room, it was decent for...

Arrived around noon. Receptionist asked if we were aware that check-in time was 3pm (which we weren't)- she wasn't very friendly or helpful but was happy to hold our bags until 3pm and gave us a discount coupon for the 5 Palms restaurant at the hotel (food was amazing). Hotel is on a lovely long beach so perfect for long...

I have read several of the reviews of the Mana Kai and can't figure out why anyone would not LOVE this place. My family of six stayed in #812 over the Christmas holiday for 10 days. We will be back - it was fantastic. Yes, we rented direct from the condo owner and our unit was completely updated. Yes, the...

We were very pleased with our accomodations. Our unit was very nice, and the property is situated on a very nice part of the island. There was a great beach and lawn area, as well as a pool within a few feet of the condo. The grounds were very well kept. There was also a small store as well as...

I used to live on Maui and the Mana Kai was popular back then, and still fantastic after all these years. The property is situated on a breathtakingly beautiful beach in Kihei, the sunniest, best side of the island. The resort lobby, entrance, and pool area is artfully designed, and love the ocean-front restaurant, 5 Palms, Keawakapu Beach, Maui. Don't...

We booked this resort through a rating on Interval and it has far exceeded our expectations. We were originally booked at the Marriott however wanted to try somewhere more intimate and less resort feeling. We arrived with a hotel room with no balcony and decided it was well worth the extra charge to upgrade to an ocean view which all...

My favorite place to stay on Maui! If you haven't been here for a few years, take note, they've redone all of the common areas. I stayed here last in 2003 and was amazed by the difference. The Mana Kai is on Keawakapu Beach, and is angled in a way that every room has a killer view. The sunsets here...

This place has the best location on Maui with the most breathtaking view of the beach! This is our second visit to Mana Kai. This time we rented a condo straight from the owner. Unit 314. We loved the unit although it does need some upgrading-otherwise, it's really nice at the quiet end of the building. This is a great...
