Historical Traveler Reviews Kahana Falls Lahaina
A quiet stay in Kahana.
Just returned from a wk at KAHANA FALLS Feb 18-25. Had a good time. We had bid on a wk on Sky Auction, and ended up with one of the hotel rooms. I read all the reviews and was hesitant at first, however our stay was very good. We were in one of the lock out hotel rooms in the Aloha bldg on the 6th floor, small room but comfortable. Jacuzzi tub, fridge, microwave, table and 2 chairs..high window above the bed, looked out on the mountain side, and on the walkway. The maids came too early for us, so we only had the once a week clean up of the room, passing our trash out to them as we were on our way out..maybe at 11 AM. The pool was nice, I enjoyed it, very soothing with the waterfalls..not heated but certainly warm by the afternoon sun....they supply towels you can keep for the week for the pool. The jacuzzis were warm and not usually busy, one by the pool and one up the back by the bbq area. There were bbqs also by the pool and people cooking there every night. Quiet serene atmosphere. I would definately recommend Kahana Falls. The beach is across the street and thru a pathway, small, but lovely to sit and watch the sunset. There are beach parks nearby that you can drive to, take a picnic lunch and enjoy, most were not busy even on the holiday (US) wkend.
Shopping is available nearby, including grocery shops, a coffee house with internet access, Kahana falls only has dial up, souvenir shops and a good restaurant-Outback.
Like everyone on Maui, you need a car to get around. We drove north one day and south to Wailea the next. We spent a day in Lahina, and stopped at the Cannary Mall. In the Cannary Mall, we saw Wendy at the activities centre and booked a snorkling trip..afternoon one...on the Four Winds II...EXCELLENT trip, also we booked KUPANAHA, the illusionist/show at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. Very good show with a very good dinner.
Just being on Maui is such a treat, we enjoyed our stay very much.
An OK place to stay
Stayed here in Nov 2004 for a week. This is not a resort, but a very comfortable hotel. Not on the beach but one is about 5 minutes by car. Located on a city street with other hotels you can walk to shopping and places to eat and drink. The pool is sandwiched between the hotel and parking lot. overall it is clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and pleasant. If you want a resort with lots to do on site then this is not for you, if you want a decent place that is centrally located to come back to at the end of the day, it will work well.
My family of 4 stayed here in June 2004. Our room had one bdrm/2ba and was roomy. Balcony had a little view of the ocean from the 3rd floor. Everything was very clean and our room was serviced everyday with fresh towels and a trash pick up. Pool was pretty, and worked fine for us. We would definately stay here again. The entire resort was spotless and maintance folks were cleaning the pool everyday. Above average.
Excellent place to stay - very peaceful
This is a very tranquil place to stay. Very well mainatained with excellent staff. I would go again. Loved the pool area.
Quiet and relaxing
Great service from a friendly staff in a well-maintained building. Just returned from a week in a 1-bd (full sized) unit. The resort was clean (no ants), and the staff bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. Had partial ocean views from the unit and plenty of space.
The kids enjoyed the pool.
Know what you are getting. The hotel units are very small, and this is not a mega-resort with crowds. But it is a great property with a wonderful staff and a nice beach just across the street.
Horrible - Resort title is a joke -- do not accept hotel style room
Since this is a Gold Crown Resort by RCI, we expected it to be nicer
then most of the reviews we saw. BEWARE!!! The hotel style room is
small (smaller then my child's bedroom), very dark, (one very small
window), and not very clean. You also have the joy of having your
bedroom and bath next to the neighbors living space. We had a family of
7 next to us -- which were up all hours of the night! The staff didn't
care when we complained and all we could do was turn up our tv and try
to fall asleep. The pool was the size of a kiddie pool at most
'resorts'. There are not enough pool chairs and most of the time you
will be in the shade of the towers anyway. Do yourself a favor and walk
to the great beach across the street at Sands of Kahana.
The 24 hour hot tub never worked during our entire stay.
And yes as others have warned you will find bugs in your unit and have to ask for a can of bug killer.
When you pull up it appears as a resort with a desk for bell hop and valet -- Opps only they don't have either !!! -- What a joke!
This may of been a 5 star resort in 1980 but it sure isn't today!!!
A wonderful place to relax
My wife and I have been owners at Kahana Falls for over eleven years and look forward to returning every summer. The rooms are clean and comfortable. This resort serves our meets our personal needs Maui; a relaxing resort to sleep and rest at night, while touring the beautiful island of Maui in the day. The accommodations were not intended for people to sit in front of the tv all day, while one of the most beautiful scenic loacation in the world awaits your own personal discovery.
Very Disappointed in the Kahana Falls
I was very disappointed when actually saw this place. I have been to many "resorts" and I would not consider Kahana Falls a resort. The hotel room was very, very small. The staff appeared to care less that we were there. There were ants in the room. The staff gave me a can of spray to kill the ants myself. This place reminded me of a flop house.
I cannot believe that this was considered a Gold Crown Resort! I toured the Embassy Suites and determined that if Kahana falls was a 5 star the Embassy Suites was a 12 star! Although I scheduled a 7 day stay, I terminated it after just 6 and went home. Resident beware!
Worst timeshare vacation - Awful rating by RCI.
This was the worst resort we ever stayed in. All they have is few artificial miniature falls. Rooms are extremely small. Service sucks.
DON'T GO HERE!
Great quiet restful location
Kahana Falls is a great time share if you want a small, quiet, restful place to spend a week. A short walk to a nice beach, a short drive to great snorkeling, walking distance to any needed shopping. It feels like living in a local apartment. A small but just great pool with a waterfall and food/beverage service. If you don't want the hustle and bustle of a large resort, this is the place!

... caught up in what can only be described as a heady social whirl, and has been getting back just before we get up for breakfast. Everwhere we go, there are barmen, waiters, photograpers, and a good handful of cruisers all calling out, clapping him on the back and shouting his name. We are now one of the many 'friends of Fred', which is a bit wierd.

Two highlights; the huge Banyon Tree at the visitor Center Park, and the Forrest Gump Bench just outside Bubba Gump’s Restaurant along the main street.
Through the night we will sail to the island of Oahu and our visit to the city of Honolulu, the Punch Bowl National Cemetery and the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.
