“Great location”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

There are very few accommodations in Hana, and Hana Kai Maui was one of the few places that allowed for one night stays (most seemed to require a minimum 2 night stay), so we ended up staying here. The hotel is probably a bit overpriced, but due to scarcity of affordable accommodations in Hana, this is understandable. The hotel itself has beautiful views of the ocean and I watched sunrise from my bed! Our unit was clean, very spacious and came equipped with a kitchen as well as a balcony. We didn't have much interaction with staff but didn't have any problems checking in or checking out.

Hana Kai is not an upscale resort. It is a nice, clean, kinda funky little beach front in one of the most beautiful places on earth. The staff were helpful, the room was spacious, the bed was an eight out of ten, the kitchen well supplied and the beach access amazing. If I ever brave the road to Hana again I will stay here. You should too.

Unit 201 was "very good" because it met our expectations, has a great view and was clean and comfortable. The Hana Kai is not fancy, but was a relaxing alternative to high-rise overdevelopment on the west side of Maui.

My wife and I spent the night at this property on the way back from "The Road To Hana".
This is a very well maintained hotel. The room was very nice and our Lanai overlooked the beach. The kitchen had all the items you would need. The visited the local market in town and picked things up for dinner on the Lanai.
There is no TV in the room which is fine as it was so peaceful to listen to the waves breaking on the shore.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
Parking is tight as it seems to be everywhere on Maui.
Ask for a room ocean front on the top floor for the best views.
We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor ocean front.

We spent 2 nights in Hana to experience "old Hawaii" and the Road to Hana. Our unit was #5-Kaahumanu, which was right on the lava rocks/beach/ocean. The unit is very nicely furnished with an Oriental/Hawaii theme, clean, & well-supplied for cooking meals. There is a lanai with a wonderful daybed that I was tempted to sleep on! There is no AC, but with the tradewinds blowing & ceiling fans, it is not needed. Spa-like shampoos, body cream, & soaps make for special clean-ups. The crash of the surf can be very loud, so if that is going to disrupt one's sleep, ear plugs will help to lighten the intensity. The town of Hana is within walking distance. Don't miss the museum, just a block from the Hana Kai. We were able to bring food for our breakfasts & lunches, and would stop at a Thai restaurant during the lunchtime to buy take-away for our dinners. Dining out is rather pricey all over the island of Hawaii, so helping to save some money there was great. Staying 2 nights was perfect. It allowed us to hike along the Road to Hana, then the following day go to the southern tip of the National Park, & down to Lindberg's grave & hike in the state park adjacent to the churchyard. Checkout day gave us time to hike in the State Park just north of Hana (don't miss it), then start the drive north on the Road to Hana. We would have missed so much without staying in Hana

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean and have private balconies. It just depends on how close you want to be to...

Nothing is reasonably priced in Hana, but you can almost forget that with the lovely view. Rooms are not huge but are well laid out although the kitchen is slightly cramped (only room for one at a time). Lovely huge shower. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Top floor is better, especially if you are in the second row of units like we were.

Room Tip: top floor is best, especially if you are in the second row of units.

We stayed at the Hana Kai for two nights in mid-February. We were originally nervous about staying in Hana given the remoteness and lack of air condition, but we were so glad we did. The Hana Kai rooms were excellent with great finishes. We did miss the air condition on occasion, but most of the time had a nice cool breeze with the windows open. High quality bath products were a nice luxury.

We'd highly recommend cutting your "drive to Hana" experience in half and spending the night in Hana. This allowed us to spend more time at the pools and to drive around the south side of the Island.
