Wonderful location, amenities, high end features. The beach is one, if not the best swim spots on the entire island.The location, half between Lahaina and Kapalua allows for several restaurant options and daily venturesCouldn't ask for a more!
Beautiful resort with a great location on the beach. The room we stayed in was very nice and the views were amazing. We had an end unit in the north building. Loved having Duke's on the property. Would highly recommend this property.
Just returned from a week long (10/7/16 - 10/14/16) stay at Honua Kai Resort. We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath room through the resort at the hard hat special rate. Our room was HH0422. We were on the mountain view side of the building looking towards the new construction and existing parking area for the hotel. We were neither super impressed or underwhelmed with the room. Definitely spacious and worked for us. We had 3 adults and a toddler. As far as the room particulars that we liked, we thought the beds were comfortable. The things we didn't like were the shower heads. They weren't very good, it felt like being hit with water cannons. It was bad enough that it we didn't even dare let our toddler in the shower to try it out. They were not even adjustable. Due to our room location we were subject to the prevailing winds if we had our lanai doors open, which would carry the stinky odors of the sewage treatment plant from across the street (look it up on Google maps). Hotel management's failing to mention this at all at anytime is a bit insincere in my opinion. The odor was different levels from none to 'close the windows!!'. We asked to be moved to a different room within our rate criteria and had no luck. This was ONE of the reasons we asked to be moved. The second was the road noise, from the main road out in front of the hotel. It was much louder than you would think it would be while on vacation on an island. There isn't much that the hotel can do on this but we asked to be moved higher up in the building but was told that nothing was available. One other item that we did notice that may be an issue for other guests but wasn't for us so much was, the hotel has their own street sweeper cleaning the parking lot every morning (lots of trees with leaves/nuts that fall everyday) around 5am. This street sweeper has a back up alarm that works well. Hotel should change the time that they do this. I bet there were some people being waken to this sound everyday. The hotel grounds are very nice as you would expect in Hawaii. The pools are nice but cold, colder than the ocean even! The wading pool for toddlers was just okay temperature wise. We were told the pools are heated by the way. The only thing that Dukes (the only restaurant onsite) has going is that it is convenient. The food is average at best and pricey. Buy your own food/snacks/drinks which you can take to the pool area. Venture out for other meals. There are lots of kids here, which is fine because we had our toddler. Just go knowing there will be kids everywhere. There is a small 'quiet' pool that you can use to take a break from the kids if you choose. The pool is cold too. Overall, we were content but would really consider other options before coming back. I mean, you can't move the road out front or the sewage treatment facility across the street and those were the issues we had.
We stayed here for a week recently. The property was really nice - fairly new and up to date appliances and great views (even though it was not ocean facing). The on site restaurant (Dave's) was expensive but that is expected in Hawaii and the food was not bad. The drinks were another story.However, the service left much to be desired. Before check in, we let them know that we will be late since our flight landed at 9pm, and were assured that there would be someone at the front desk to welcome us. On reaching the hotel, there was no one to be found. After waiting in the hall for a few minutes wondering what to do, we found someone walking past and asked him about it, and were told to call using the phone on the desk. Then we had to get back in the car and drive 5 minutes to another building.Then there was no mention of the amenities available or wifi connection information (although it was included in the bunch of papers in the key envelope - I suppose we were supposed to sift through and read all that). Finally, 3 days later and no room service. I'd read the small print that said room service is every other day, and I'd confirmed the 2nd morning with the front desk that they would come in that day, but no one did. The 3rd morning, we went to the front desk and the lady at the desk coolly told us that since we checked in after 12am, it was not considered our 3rd but our 2nd day! Too bad the room charges aren't done like that.Oh, and there's a parking lot in the basement accessible with the room key. The front desk, instead, told us to park in the guest lot which is a good 5 minutes walk from the front lobby. So. very. convenient. And the section between the parking and the elevator stank so bad we had to hold our breath every time. _really_ didn't expect this from such a supposed "luxury" place.At this point, we gave up and enjoyed what facilities we could find, including the public beach that's walking distance away which was why we got this hotel in the first place!
We rented a unit on the 4th floor of the main building through VRBO. We didn't use the pool area at all because you were not allowed to take any food/drink in but you had to buy from them. It looked nice and was surely convenient but we went down the near The Westin to a beach park instead. Actually it's walkable from here but we had beach chairs, etc. Family had snacks/drinks at Dukes and enjoyed it.
