Ours was a last minute booking - check in was easy even at midnight. As we walked into the ocean view 2 bedroom condo - all we could say was Wow! Beautiful view, great sunsets. For one adult and 2 kids (14 and 11) it was expensive. As soon as I mentioned we were not a party of six -...

I stayed here for two weeks. The parking was bad at night and the beaches are in need of being cleaned as the water is dark and dirty here. I drove to there nicer beaches on island because the condo beaches are gross

Stayed here with family in 3 bedroom unit in Building 4 (unit 431). Check in was efficient. I requested a change of unit to Oceanview but was declined with standard response that this is high season and lots of owners on site. Our unit did have a bit of an ocean view if you looked past the Valley Isle resort...

I have been staying in this 4 - building complex for about 15 years. The units are HUGE and beautifully laid out. Since I don't have a timeshare, I just rent my condo through Sullivan Properties, so I can stay as long or short as I wish. Be sure to ask for an oceanfront unit so you can fall asleep...

Grammy at the front desk has been absolutely fabulous to us in our second year in a row at SOK. She gave us ocean view rooms the entire stay both times we stayed here. A total of about 2 and a half months. They have been nothing short of fantastic. The views are off the charts. We have been able...

We have stayed at these condos before. We like them because they are large for our big group of 17. However we don't love the beach right outside the hotel and also, not impressed that there is no air conditioning. It was very uncomfortably hot most days and nights in the hotel. Another complaint is the parking garages and parking...

I'm writing this review after an incredible 10 days on Maui for our girls trip. I'm lying here now, suffering from what I'm certain is depression over waking up to the sounds of barking dogs and cars passing by my bedroom window and not the sound of the ocean waves kissing the sandy shoreline. We stayed in this unit at...

Stayed here for a week while in Maui and it was great. Spacious, clean, great views, great place. Pool was nice and grounds were well kept. We got a two bedroom with ocean view.

Aloha, Tahoenana. Thank you for visiting Sands of Kahana. We are disappointed we fell short of expectations owing to your room assignment. We can certainly empathize and would have gladly moved you to an ocean view had one been available. Unfortunately, this is our busy season, and those rooms are occupied by our vacation club owners, who book their stays...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite overlooking the ocean. Lots of space to sprawl out. The kitchen was pretty good with most everything you would need. The beds were fine and the bathrooms were clean, but not spectacular or particularly updated. the grounds are nice with several gas BBQ's located around the complex, a kids pool, an " adult...
