How it Ranks: Honua Kai Resort & Spa ranks #3 out of 287 Maui Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Maui.

Our Take: The gorgeous grounds of Honua Kai Resort & Spa occupy a good chunk of Ka'anapali Beach along the western coast of the island — a location that previous guests just can't help but praise. As for the experience of staying here, travelers have mixed feelings. Honua Kai's suite-style accommodations all come equipped with full kitchens, ample living space and balconies or terraces; however, some recent travelers say that some of the balconies' ocean vistas leave much to be desired. And while visitors are impressed with the resort's atmosphere, they say to look elsewhere if you're seeking a more romantic ambiance, as this property is popular among families. It's easy to see why: Not only can the rooms house larger groups, but the resort also boasts a pool with an accompanying water park, not to mention a kids club. Should you need a break from the family bustle, former guests recommend the Ho'ola Spa as the place to go for some down time. Honua Kai also features the in-house Duke's Beach House restaurant and an on-site market should you prefer to do your own cooking.
