I just had to respond to the review dated March 31. I have stayed at the Mana Kai on several occasions over the last seven years. My husband and I and our children ages 12 and 8 love the Mana Kai. I consider myself to be very finicky when it comes to cleanliness and I have NEVER had an issue with this at the ManaKai. The rooms and linens have always been very clean and the grounds are impeccable. No, its not a five star resort, but the accomodations are very comfortable, and the view and location are second to none. As far as the noise is concerned, there may be some slight noise from the hotel room area, which is over the parking area but from the condo , I guess you could consider the pounding surf noisy.....but its music to my ears!!! The boogie boarding, snorkling and beach walking are unsurpassed from this area. And yes, Kihei may be a bit bitnik, but thats the charm of it. Crime??? I'm sure it happens, it does everywhere, but we have never had an incident, in fact, when my husband lost his wallet at the Akina beach area on one of our trips, we found that someone had turned it in(undisturbed) to the Kihei police office. Unbelievable actually!!
Anyway, I'm sure we could all gripe about one thing or another when we go somewhere on vacation. I don't know what happend to the previous family to cause them to write such a scathing review, but to knock every aspect of the resort and town ........lends me to believe that they have an axe to grind. I respect reviews that are subjective to problems, not objective to every negative aspect that they can possibly think of.
Just wanted to give some perspective to help those that may be considering or already have a trip planned to Kihei and/or the Mana Kai. You won't be dissapointed! Aloha!
