Check in was a breeze and the staff pleasant. Our unit was much more private than I would have expected. Clean and airy with a well furnished kitchen and a large screen TV. We spent time on the balcony and enjoyed the varied bird calls and tropical foilage. It would be nice if the unit had an Ipod player but... More

Our check -in took a whole 4 minutes and we were in our room 4 minutes later. We opened the doors and went wow. We live here and never been to this propoerty before and booked it just by chance and we were so happy we did. I love the open feeling you get when walking in and the cleanliness... More

Overall beautiful place, very scenic and quiet. The Makai Club offers two types of units, detached single unit cottages or condo style apartments. We stayed in the condos which are ideal for couples but there is a pullout queen size sleeper couch in the living room for an extra person or two. The condos are in 8 separate 5-plex buildings...

Our first visit to the cottages was just two of us in 2012. We were stunned on how large the 'cottage' is. Planning for the next trip made is simple; no where else would we want to go. Invited our son, his wife and their three small children for two weeks in January 2015. Ample room for all! King beds... More

I would highly recommend this resort to anyone who is looking for a place that truly cares about their guests. My husband was hospitalized during our stay and the staff was so caring an made certain that all my needs were met and then some. I was alone but I never felt that I had a worry in the world....

Joanne B, We are so grateful for your kind words about our resort. We know when something unplanned happens when you are away from home it can be a scary time. When you (or any of our guests) stay at the Makai Club, you are our family and are therefore treated that like family. We hope you come back for... More

We decided to go back to this property July, 2012. Very nice property after the renovations. The rooms are clean, the kitchens are fantastic. I highly recommend trying this property. Don't waste your time with the timeshare presentation, its a big waste of time on your vacation. Excellent location for rest and relaxation!

First of all, the Makai Club is different from Makai Club Cottages; however, when I try to review Makai Club Cottages, Trip Advisor brings up this screen. This review is for the Makai Club Cottages...both trade as timeshares or can be rented outside of a timeshare trade. We've stayed several times at the Makai Club Cottages (most recently this January)... More

The location is amazing, but what makes this resort so special are the people who work there. They were gracious, available and extraordinarily helpful. Every question we ever had was answered with great kindness. We have stayed at resorts with higher ratings before, but this resort under promises and over delivers. The 2 bedroom stand alone unit we stayed in... More

Yes, the exterior is vintage 1980, but interiors have been remodeled to current standards (all the granite you could want.) Very quiet location, well off the highway and adjacent to a golf course. Strong, reliable wifi in the unit - not a given in much of Hawaii. Grounds are meticulously maintained and there is plenty of space between buildings. The... More
