My husband and I stayed here for my birthday. We had another couple with us. We booked the two bedroom suite partial ocean view. This place was great. The grounds are beautiful, rooms very comfy and modern and the pool areas vast. This is the first time we stayed at a condo/resort. I'm not sure what the difference is really between this and a hotel. We had all the services you would at a hotel, but got a better deal and laundry in our room. This place has room service, a restaurant on site, gym, little coffee/cafe for quick bites, grills, towel service at the pool, bar maids at the pool.

Service was good. I did have to call to get our laundry detergent, but otherwise they were real helpful.

Duke's Restaurant was great. The service was amazing and super friendly. One morning I my order came to me wrong and the quickly replaced it via the manager, apologized several times and took it off my bill.

It was super windy. We had to hold down some of our belongings by the pool with heavier items. But we were in Hawaii and loving it so it wasn't bothering us too much.

The only wacky thing is the towel service. They give you a towel card when you check in and you're technically allowed one towel per card. Each time we got towels a different attendant had a different policy. Sometimes we could get two with one card, sometimes one. Then at the end of our stay we had double the amount of cards to return and they werent counted or anything. Not sure why they even bother.

Overall we'd be back in a heartbeat.

We are currently on a 7 day vacation, we stayed 5 days at the Kaanapali Shores and it was terrible. For our last two days we moves here. Brad at the front desk help us out by up graded us from a 1 bedroom to a two bedroom. This place is amazing, as soon as we walked on the resort we felt like vacation started all over again. We will be back for sure because of the service Brad gave us and how nice this place is. Thanks Brad you de man from the Fernandez Family!!!!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any of the rooms. This place is brand new!!!

My family of four stayed in the Konea Tower at the Honua Kai for 5 nights at the beginning of June. This is a beautiful resort with all of the features of a very nice hotel, but the added convenience of a kitchen. We stayed in a one bedroom which was small but just fine for our family. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was great with everything we needed (except salt and pepper!) and the balcony completely opens up to the room. The lobby and pool are are gorgeous at Honua Kai. There are 4 pools: one with a water slide and waterfall, another with a "lazy river" which is popular with kids, and two others, one of which is an infinity pool. Pool toys, beach chairs,boogie boards, snorkel equiptment, etc, can be purchased an rented from two beach huts right there at the pool. We rented snorkel equipment there and paid $30 per set for the week. Duke's is right on property situated in the pool area between the two towers. They serve drinks by the pool as well as burgers, quesadillas, fish tacos, and POG(passion orange guava juice) which was popular with my kids! If you go for dinner don't miss their famous Hula Pie!
The beach is just steps from the pool area. This is North Kaanapali Beach, a beautiful and quiet stretch of beach separated from Kaanapali Beach (where the big resorts are) by Black Rock. The snorkeling right in front of the hotel is good, but head just up the beach to Black Rock for great snorkeling. Best to wear fins or swim shoes for swimming and snorkeling as there is coral( For terrific swimming and sunbathing I highly recommend a short 10 minute drive up the coast to Kapalua Bay. It is a small but gorgeous beach which also has great snorkeling). There is a wooden beachwalk appx 1.5 miles long which runs along the sand of North Kaanapali Beach. It is alive with runners and walkers and a magnificent way to start your morning.
There is a Times Market (like a small Safeway with lots of beach stuff) across the street, a Safeway very close (on the way to the hotel in Lahaina), a gourmet market on property called Aina which serves coffee, pastries, etc plus has lots of fruit, snacks, and convenience items, plus there are bbqs near the pool areas for grilling. We absolutely recommend this resort and will be back as soon as possible! Great for families!!!

My husband and I just returned from 5 nights at Honua Kai. We stayed in a one-bedroom oceanview unit in the Konea tower that we rented through VRBO, and I would highly recommend going this route -- we got a great price (about half of what we'd have paid to stay at a comparable resort) and it was incredibly easy and hassle-free. Even though the room was larger than we really needed for just two of us, we enjoyed having the extra space to spread out and it truly felt like a luxurious vacation while being very affordable.

The location seems a bit remote at first -- it's a couple of stoplights past Ka'anapali and a little far to walk to Whaler's Village. But everyone has a rental car in Maui anyway, so you're really just five minutes away from all that. And you can be in Lahaina in under 15 minutes, which makes it easy to get to shopping and some of the best restaurants on the island.

The beach outside the resort was wide open -- no huge crowds or surfboarding classes -- with some decent snorkeling right off the beach. I saw parrotfish, several varieties of angelfish and even the famous Humuhumunukunuku-apua'a. There's a lot of reef in that section, so water shoes are definitely a good idea, but you can find sandy patches for swimming if that's your thing.

The facilities are great -- lots of pools and none of them very crowded. We never had to fight for a pool chair -- there were plenty to go around. Yes, there are kids, but they were not obnoxious in any way on our visit. They had plenty of room to spread out without bothering anyone.

Duke's Restaurant was really convenient for dinner and had a great view of the sunset with live Hawaiian music and a hula dancer. Totally touristy, but we loved it.

Self-parking was really convenient and worth the $10 a day. There's a parking garage with a separate elevator that took us right to our room, so didn't even had to go through the lobby.

The kitchen was fully equipped, and it was nice having a full-sized fridge. There's a grocery store (Times Supermarket) right across the street where you can stock up on breakfast and lunch items. We usually had leftovers from dinner that we could reheat in the microwave and eat on our balcony the next day (which made the expensive dinner prices seem a little more bearable!) And most of all, our room was QUIET! After being in Honolulu for two days before, we were so amazed at how tranquil and relaxing our Maui setting was in comparison. We never heard a peep from other rooms around ours (except for the people above us moving their patio furniture a couple of times).

We really enjoyed the balcony doors that opened all the way up and the furnishings were very nice. The bed wasn't super comfortable, and there were some minor idiosyncrasies, like a toilet that didn't flush quite right and a water dispenser on the refrigerator that was hard to operate. But it seems silly to complain about little things like that when you're in paradise, right?

Room Tip: Konea tower was extremely quiet and our unit on the 6th floor had a great view.

My husband and I stayed here with another couple last week for 4 days. When we walked through the lobby I was in awe of the place! We arrived in the evening as the sun was setting and they had just turned on the fire pit. It was "picture perfect"!

Room: We stayed in a studio suite. There was great attention to detail with the choice of paint colors, crown molding, a lanai that opened up the whole width of the wall! Also, the kitchen was great!!! Stainless steel Bosch appliances and granite countertops! The bathroom was spacious with a stand up shower and whirl pool tub. My only complaint was one day we were in the room while housekeeping came up, and they said they would return but they never did the remainder of our trip.

Property: The beach was amazing, and very calm waters. From reading other reviews, not sure why some were saying it was too rocky to swim as that was not the case at all. We watched the sunset on the beach every night! They also have BBQ grill stations around the resort, and that was great to have if you wanted to make a meal since Times (grocery store) was a 5 mins walk away! The pool was filled with children...def a family oriented resort. I didn't mind since I spent most of the time at the beach where there were NO children! haha But nonetheless, I still swam in the pools and went down the waterside! They also have Duke's Restaurant on the resort. It was busy at times, but nice. We grabbed drinks at the bar and listened to the live music they had every night!

Overall, a great resort and would stay here again. :)
