We stayed here for one week. We had two bedroom condo in the Konea tower.
Condo was very clean and supplied well.
Resort pools were fun for the kids
Beach was great for boogie boards
We found everyone friendly.
We found the wifi was patchy in the condo.
There is a great supermarket within walking distance which was well stocked. There is a shop within the resort which was great for liquor but not as good for groceries.
Great visit.We will return again to this place.

Stayed: August 2014

We stayed in the Konea tower in a VRBO. Our unit was supplied with everything we needed for our 9 day stay. The beds were extremely comfortable! We rented a 2 bedroom unit with friends; each bedroom had its own bathroom and air conditioning. The kitchen was equipped nicely. The swimming pools are beautiful. The pool staff are very friendly, Anthony was great! The fitness room is great. We walked on the boardwalk to Black Rock almost everyday and then relaxed on the beach. Duke's Beach House is very convenient for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I would highly recommend Honua Kai.

I have really hard time to decide the rating for Honua Kai. I would probably give 3.5*, if I could.

I first start with positive things:
* Very nice, big condo. We have no objections regarding the apartment - it was clean, nicely equipped, comfortable. It was quiet inside during night, we slept well (after reprogramming AC, which was set too low by default). The kitchen is big enough for vacation purposes and all appliances are up to date. Big bathroom, with both shower and bath tub (which was great for kids).
* 24/7 gym, with modern devices and weights. One of the best we have seen in resorts, we visited so far.
* Very close (walking distance) to supermarket and other small stores with fresh local food.
* Good snorkeling right next to the hotel. Almost every day I was able to see and swim with big turtles. Plenty of fish, especially further away from the shore. If you like snorkeling, bring your own equipment!

Negative things:
* Ridiculous resort fee. I am a big enemy of hidden fees of all kinds and therefore I hated to realize after arrival that we have to add additional $25 per day to our final bill!
* Virtually no "resort" services. Despite the fact we paid quite high price, plus additionally $25 per day resort fee, there were no services we could have enjoyed for this price - no snorkeling rentals, no toys or swim aid for kids, no beach umbrellas or beach chairs, no crib etc. For everything, we had to pay extra fees.
* Only one, overpriced restaurant on the property.
* Pathetic pools. Actually I can write that there are no pools: there are swim "bowls" for kids (with max depth 3.5') and that's it. So if you are a swimmer, you either go to ocean or you are out of luck.
* Absolutely no entertainment after sunset. After 9pm outside of the resort resembles a ghost town. The only thing you can enjoy there in the evening is hot tub, there is not much else to do.

I would recommend this resort for families with small kids. The pools are great for kids, they are nicely organized, with a lot of shade. Bring your own kids' toys, as there is no rental at pools, only stores to buy things...
IMHO the resort is less suitable for active couples.

This condo complex was chosen by family for our Maui stay and we were not disappointed. We rented 713 in the Hokulani tower through Steve Gatchell at VRBO who was very attentive to our requests. The condos are quite spacious with a great kitchen and washer, dryer. The best aspect is the large lanai with doors that open completely. We enjoyed many an hour sitting there and watching the weather, Molokai in the distance and boats cruising on the ocean. There is a nice restaurant, Duke's, on the grounds with pretty good food. I wish we had tried the snorkeling in the front of the hotel - apparently there are sea turtles visible.

Keep in mind that parking and maid service are at additional cost.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are a must.

Just returned from 6 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment (family of 4 with a 9 & 13 yr old). Kids slept in the lounge on sofa bed and roll-away bed. Beautiful apartments with everything you need - full kitchen and laundry. Supermarket just across the road (5-10 min walk) Pools were great, slide for the kids and a few different pools to keep everyone happy. Cafe for takeaway coffees in the complex and Dukes restaurant also on site. Nice beach with great snorkeling right off the beach - we went to a few snorkeling spots and this was the best by far, and only 1 of 2 places we saw turtles (which was such a highlight). About a 10-15 min drive to the Whalers Village (a 45-60 min walk apparently but we didn't do it). Would definitely recommend having a car on Maui, to explore the island.
