My family has been going to this resort for over 15 years. While it has gone through several different management companies the management on site is out of this world! They have always gone out of their way to accommodate and make our trip special. They did everything from leave anniversary champagne in our room, chocolates for my father in... More

Our 1 bed/1 bath room had everything we needed. Full kitchen, AC, nice balcony view of the lush area, good wifi, and a washer/dryer. The office had beach chairs and umbrellas we could take to the beach, and beach towels in the room. They also have several bicycles to use. As Princeville sits high above the ocean, getting a beach... More

I had stayed 7 nights at a resort in Poipu just before my 7 nights at Makai. My other experience was very uncomfortable. My stay at Makai was very comfortable! From the moment we arrived, I felt welcome and comfortable. Our unit was a very good size, cool, well supplied, and offered enough space to not feel cramped. The amenities... More

We enjoyed the clean cool rooms! Easy to get to our favorite beach in Hanalei. Great value for the north shore. Friendly and easy check-in and check-out. Great kitchen and close to nearby grocery store. We will return and stay again.

Staff is really nice. Great service helping you with whatever you need. All you need in the room to make your own meals. Filtered water to prevent more wasted plastic bottles. Lots of room for everyone. Grounds are well kept and maintenance on units is clean.

Rooms are nice. They could be renovated a little, but I loved the high ceilings and the fact that a washer and dryer was in the unit. The area is great for walking/jogging and golf/tennis are just steps away. There were also bicycles to ride, which was nice. We also loved that they give you beach chairs to use during... More
