Great smaller hotel, perfect for relaxing after the windy trip to Hana. On a black sand beach, too. Very quiet, extremely clean unit with bedroom, living room, nice balcony and full kitchen. Highly recommend!

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Hana. It was a great deal. Room 205 rents for about $220. a night. We were on the second floor of the back unit (recommended) if you don't pop for the Bay-Front rooms of the front unit (around $400.) There are no air-conditioned rooms in all of Hana so don't worry about that. "The Kai" supplies you with several fans to keep the air moving. The staff is friendly and the location, central. We watched the sunrise shine up from the koi ponds on our second morning here and that was magical. The room has a full kitchen for cooking and under the front unit there is an outside bar-b-que and picnic tables if you want to have a party of more than 4. There is also an outside cold shower if you take a dip in the bay. They have great Hawaiian coffee, fresh flowers, books, Foil and Pam supplied in the kitchen,. Egyptian cotton sheets on the beds and a lovely balcony in each unit. The layout is such that you can't see your neighbors, only smell their Paca Loco. We will come back here!!!!

Room Tip: Top floor back unit!

Fabulous place to stay! Very relaxing with a FULL kitchen -- everything you'd want (even though we didn't use it much, since we only stayed one night). Beautiful view from an oceanfront room; large lanai with table for eating & lounge chairs. Made me want to come back next time for longer. Room was more 'homey' than a regular hotel room, but very welcoming with books & games. (No TV or air conditioning -- didn't need it anyway with the ocean breeze; good internet access.) Staff friendly & helpful when we needed to switch our reservation due to Tropical Storm Flossie. (Hotel called to tell us road to Hana was closed due to storm, but they were very accommodating in making the changes.)

Room Tip: Lower building closer to water has lawn area abutting black sand beach. Upper building still has go...

We decided to take it slow on the road to Hana, stay the night in Hana (at Hana Kai) and continue on around the "back side" the following day. Excellent decisions all around.
The condo is a loft unit that has plenty of space for a family of four. It was clean and well maintained (no, it was not like a brand new hotel room - if you want that, stay on Oahu). It had a unique charm and a relaxed, comfortable feel. The view from the lanai can't be described - simply magical. What a great place to have a quiet breakfast (pick up some local banana bread and fruit)!
What would improve it? Maybe air conditioning... but with three fans in the unit, that really is not an issue after an hour or two to air it out with the help of the ocean breezes. Yes, you may hear your neighbors, but at least on our stay, the place was amazingly peaceful. (I thought everybody went to sleep early to wake up for the sunrise... but morning was just as quiet.)
So, why will we never consider any other place in Hana?
We did have a couple of "weird" issues - totally random and not something that will happen again, not something that could have been foreseen or prevented. One lovely young lady on front desk staff (Pohai) stayed almost two hours after the end of her shift to ensure things were fully resolved, even despite the fact that another person was working on the issue and I told her to go home (multiple times!) Where do you find such dedication from an employee? The following morning, without us saying a word, the manager was fully updated on the issue, and volunteered to make things right! That is truly going above and beyond what's expected.
One perfect choice in Hana - Hana Kai Maui #202 - that's all.

I write this review after a 2 week vacation in Hawaii Big Island and Maui. This was one the BEST places we stayed in overall. We rented the oceanfront room Keanini, and the view was just incredible. What was even nicer was the relaxing wonderful sound of ocean waves crashing so very close. The view was simly amazing, and from all windows. The outside seating was great . The access to the completely uncrowded black beach was a definite plus. They provide good quality beach towels, and room kitchens are good. Parking was easy and right outside our room. Staff were friendly. Overall highly recommended and A++.

Room Tip: Choose an oceanfront room. its expensive, but absolutely worth it

We rented a condo in Hana so we could spend 2 days exploring the Road to Hana. We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to our rental. The condo was well decorated nicely laid out. Our place had two balconies one in the living room over looking the beach and ocean, and a smaller one of the bedroom. we walked on the beach and explored the lava pools. The next morning I got up and photographed the sunrise. Check-in and check-out was quick and the staff very pleasant. The kitchen had plenty of utensils and gadgets for cooking, although we went out for dinner. We would highly recommend this place, and will probably stay 2 days next time.

Room Tip: There are 2 buildings , the one closest to the beach is only available for 2 or more days. Sice we w...

It is very difficult to chose a sleeping spot from halfway around the world. I am writing this from a house in Lahaina where we hear the cars passing on the highway not far enough, so I know...
We had the room 101, a corner unit with a large balcony facing the ocean, almost in line with the rising sun. That doesn't make for the best morning pictures, but WHAT A VIEW!!! And the sounds of the waves breaking in the bay makes the best lullaby.
There is an opening in the wall between the kitchen and the balcony, so we could refill our coffee mugs without leaving the paradise. And it offers superb lighting for the pictures later in the afternoon, then a great view for stargazing.
On the negative side (to be honest)... A bit pricey (like all of Hana), the parking is a bit small (but we never had to worry), and they do not have a beach (the only one is Hana Beach Park). There is no food or room service offered either (we knew and we had a full kitchen). Therefore I still give them 5/5.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner unit. Their balcony have two open sides for a better view.
