Check in was quick. I was greeted with Aloha and a smile, my room was ready on time as promised. I found the grounds to be well groomed, very pleasant and colorful. The staff at Kohea are very friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist traffic in town. Beach access is prime. There is nothing more to say except that I will be returning soon for another stay. Thank you Luseane and crew for making my trip to Maui fun and memorable!

Very Good8.0
Nice place. Great service
We did not spend the night unfortunately as we had a red eye flight back to the mainland. Service was great and we just hung out and grilled some food before heading to the airport. Location was right across from the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely place, so much better than a big resort
Absolutely fantastic place, staff provided a tour at check-in and the rooftop was amazing. Love the garden and facilities. Pretty standard breakfast, room came with some snacks and had a microwave, which was really nice. Only imperfection was that air conditioning was pretty noise at night. Right across the street from the beach, could not be better. Incredible sunset view

"Resort" is a little decieving
For a place that has "resort" in the name, I was a little disappointed. I don't feel like it lives up to the pictures. They make it out to be much better than it is. It was okay, we didn't have any problems, but it's certainly not a resort. The rooms are small, the showers are tiny, and so is the pool. It's a good thing I didn't plan on using the pool much, because it's about as long as I am. It was nice that they had beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, etc.) for the narrow beach across the street. I am going to use VRBO next time.
