We stayed at Grand Wailea for 4 nights end of the summer. Luckily, we got a great deal on Expedia and didn't pay the outrageous price for the room. The hotel lobby is beautiful and the ground is grand. We've stayed at the Marriott next door so we have been in the area. However, the room is outdated. You can... More

Just returned from a great family vacation at the GW. This place is not your typical Waldorf. It is designed with kids in mind. The rooms are nice but not great, the service is very good but where this place shines is the pool and water slides. Our 10 year old didn't want to leave

We've been to Maui (Wailea) 9x switching back and forth between the Grand and the Four Seasons, we like them both...for different reasons, but love the Wailea area. This time we stayed 12 days. Valet- service needs work (used to be better) we'd call down 15 minutes prior to arriving at the lobby and most of the times our car... More

Probably one of the most luxurious, romantic and beautiful resorts I have ever stayed at. I live for the day that I can return. The spa is everything one would think a spa should be. I have never experienced beaches, pools and general fairy tale like atmosphere. If you ever want to truly feel luxury this is the place to... More

First off I should state that the hotel boasts one of the more beautiful and scenic lobbies in the US.The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the pool area offers delights for all ages. Generally speaking the staff is warm and welcoming and the location is next door to a shopping center that offers appeal to shoppers and a nice... More

Exceptional facility, amenities and service quality. Overall facility is conducive to rest, relaxation and fun. The Spa experience is the best in the world. I was most impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff I encountered - bellman, maid service, room service, SPA, and restaurant servers - this is an overall reflection of the training and focus...

I am a travel agent who has been in the business for almost 10 years. It feels like I have spent more nights sleeping in hotels than in my own bed! Haha I have traveled all over the world and have experienced over the top, great, so-so and terrible hotels. I would say that after all of my experiences I... More

Surprisingly disappointed. We had heard so much about it and it did not live up to its ""grand" name. Rooms were plain and old, grounds were not well kept, and definitely not worth the costly stay. The restaurant and views were wonderful. The stafff was great, except the valet... you MUST valet, but if you check out during a busy... More

Our family has visited Wailea for years and we decided to book a room at the Grand Wailea for one night to enjoy their pools. Well, what a disappointment! We checked in a 4 pm and the special pools close at 5 pm, not sure why. The water in pools was "disgusting" to quote my 8 year old, closed early... More
