Upon arrival at the Mana Kai Maui resort, travelers may recognize the lobby sea turtle mural, which served as a backdrop for scenes from the Adam Sandler film "Just Go with It." This laid-back resort has a decidedly worn-in feel, with older rooms that have been mostly refurbished, but not entirely renovated.
The jewel of this property is its location -- all rooms offer sweeping ocean views, and the mile-long beachfront is just yards from the hotel. Lonely Planet says the sunset views over Keawakapu Beach are some of the best in Kihei, and guests of this resort have a front row view every night.
Perfect for families and laid-back beach lovers, the beach is swimmable (not all on the island are). The hotel's on-site surf shack offers snorkel, surf and beach gear for guests. Opt to stay in a traditional hotel room -- all are air-conditioned with daily maid service -- or a one- or two-bedroom apartment. Most are air-conditioned, and all have kitchens and lanais, though decor varies.
The lobby is a one-stop shop for guests: pick up lunch at the gourmet grocery/deli and spend evenings at the restaurant, which boasts a noteworthy sunset happy hour and fresh seafood.
From the press:
"You simply cannot get any closer to gorgeous Keawakapu Beach than this unsung hero of South Shore hotels, offering both renovated hotel rooms and condos that may be older than its competitors but are well-priced and have marvelous ocean views, especially during the winter humpback whale season" -- Fodor's
"Sunset views from the beach are some of the best in Kihei, and guests can swim and snorkel in the ocean right outside the door" -- Lonely Planet
