At The Maui Banyan, you don’t have to compromise. With two pools, a tennis court, a swimming beach across the street, and a range of unit types (rooms and condos), you can have
everything you need on vacation, including the satisfaction that you are getting a great value. Our condos come equipped with kitchens and laundry or take a true break from it all and stay in a hotel room. You may never want to leave the property, but if you do be sure to enjoy nearby golf courses, great restaurants and shops in neighboring Kihei and Wailea.
My husband and I stayed here three nights. The room was in the same building as the office, on the first floor, on the street. To separate the room from the street, there was a thick hedge. The patio was about 4 ft wide with the thick hedge making you feel like your were in a cave.
The room was clean but pretty small. It had enough supplies including a microwave and toaster. There is no ice machine at the resort and the tiny freezer in the dorm size fridge could never make enough ice.
The air conditioner was right next to the right side of the bed and blew onto whoever slept there making it a very cold night.
With that being said, the location is awesome. You walk out the door, past the next building and you are at a beautiful, sandy, public beach. There are also several really good restaurants within walking distance. We ate at Cafe O’Lei Kihei and I definitely recommend it.
Walk to Beach
We are in our sixties and cannot think of enough positive things to say. Price is extremely reasonable for the size of the condo. Unexpected delights included a washing machine and dryer in room. The huge amount of kitchen supplies and kitchen itself permitted us to save much money on restaurants. With that said there is a neat Mexican restaurant within walking distance.
This is also an easy run to airport and Lahaina.
Of note the beach across the street Kamala 2 was perfect for us. In fact we ended up only using this great beach.

Just spent two weeks at this condo in Maui. The location can not be beat! Located across the street from Kamaole Beaches and down the street from many really good places to eat...Moose McGuillycuddy's(two for one breakfast coupons in information booklets) Coconut's Fish Cafe, Cafe o Lei, and many more I'm sure. Check out the gelato and ice cream at the Dolphin Plaza a few blocks down too! We had a car but you can walk to all of these. Foodland is a bit further down but a good place to get your groceries if not heading to COSTCO. There are several little markets and The Shops at Wailea are a short drive away.
Staff at our condo were great and very helpful. We had a ground floor unit, mere steps from the pool-awesome! They have 6 BBQs for use by the pool as well as a covered eating/seating area with a wet bar area.
Our condo was well set up for us and the couple traveling with us. We each had separate rooms with our own baths. The beds and pillows were super comfy!
The one complaint we have is regarding the cleanliness/maintenance of our condo. It was not super clean when we checked in. The floors, doors etc look like they haven't had a good scrubbing in a while. The build up of dirty hands on the walls by the patio door etc was not nice. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and dishes etc. But there were two cabinets that had doors just hanging off the hinges and none of the cabinets look like they've been cleaned inside for quite some time. The outdoor patio has leakage from the AC units on it, so it was wet and dirty all the time. There was a wetjet scrubber we were supposed to use to clean the floors and the patio I assume. But the batteries were dead and starting to corrode inside so not sure who was supposed to replace those. There were two clothes drying racks to use. One was held together with rubber bands. Our patio set had one chair that was on its last legs as the seat was all ripped up and we just set it aside. We did enjoy our stay here immensely, just think it could totally use some cleaning and maintenance.
Great Condo facility
Can’t beat the convenience and excellent condo options. Then pool offers a good alternative if you want to skip the beach, people are friendly and the buildings are maintained.
We often stay at this condo complex in a large group and it’s always been a great stay.
The hotel was located right beside the beach and was near enough to a handful of restuarant. Beach equipment such as chair, umbrella, boogi board was available in the room for the guest to bring it out. There was also dvd rental that was included with the room.
