I have stayed at this hotel four times. I have stayed at the Fairmont two times (no kids). The Grand is known for it outdoor pools and grounds. Great for the little kids. My kids are over 18 now. We reserved two rooms this time. One for my three kids and one for my wife and I. They are expensive... More

The views. The Staff. The rooms. You really just can't beat the Grand Wailea! The pools have been upgraded and the amenities surrounding them. I was very impressed with the room upgrades as well (they were needed) but I was extremely happy with the new additions. Breakfast at Grand Dining Room Maui is a must everyday. Lunch and Drinks at...

What an incredible hotel. Staff is professional and the service is stellar! Our room was PERFECT! The bathroom was stocked with nice lotions and bath products and the robes were plush and luxurious! The staff checked the room 3 times a day to make sure we had plenty of fresh towels and they were extremely nice. The pool and the... More

Had SUCH a great time here. Beautiful, idyllic property with lots for the family to do. The pools in the kids area are amazing. The beach was perfect, too. We are a family of 5 and had a wonderful time. I found the staff to be accomodating but not overly friendly. Very large property. We liked it, but our children... More

I have been visiting this resort for the past ten years. Always exemplary, until they removed the mini bars in the bedrooms due to high school kids breaking in to them. At least that was their excuse to me. Still, the property is gorgeous and the pools breathtaking.

Aloha Jenner36, Mahalo for your review and visiting us over the last 10 years! The mini bars were removed due to lack of demand, and we instead increased our offerings in Cafe Kula as well as room service. We appreciate your review and feedback and look forward to welcoming you back again. Mahalo, Tom Donovan More

My family and I spent the 5 days at the Grand Wailea Resort and it was FANTASTIC! The grounds, people, and accommodations were great.

My large family group of 11 just returned from the Grand Wailea Luau. Unfortunately, it was a lesser evening....especially considering the price was $100 per person. The location is lovely, the bar was decent, but the buffet was less than stellar. They were running four buffets for the 5-600 people there this evening, which is a great idea as long... More

Aloha Sue B, Mahalo for your feedback on The Grand Luau. I apologize that your experience was not positive. The Grand Luau is held on Grand Wailea grounds, however it is ran and owned by an activity management company. We will most certainly share your feedback with the owners to ensure that this does not happen again. Mahalo, Tom Donovan More

Home of the only water elevator which takes you from the lower pool level to the highest pool level in a 10 minute, 25 foot ride.
