My husband and I honeymooned at this resort 13 years ago and just returned this past week as with our 11 year old son. It was much as we remembered - the amazing pools and slides brought us back! We had a fabulous ocean view room overlooking a koi pond and the Chapel on-site. We had no problem getting a... More

The Hotel staff will always make you feel welcome, and the pool is the best. The beach at the Hotel is never crowded, and it is a great place to watch the Wales and has a great area for snorkeling and scuba diving.

Our family stayed at the Grand Wailea in the Napua Tower for four nights. I'd do it again in a flash! Napua Tower included breakfast, afternoon snack, happy hour, as well as quick check in. The concierges that we dealt with were wonderful (Jen and George) and the staff who we saw on a daily basis were always warm and... More

Great hotel. Pool is fun and inviting for kids. You will spend $$$$, but if that's not an issue you will love it. The pool side lunch was $150. Food was good, but pricy. I have been to several Luau's before, but I like the Grand Waliea's the best. I heard the Four Season next door is putting on a... More

Do not believe the bad reviews on Trip Advisor. From the minute we arrived at the resort, until we VERY reluctantly left a week later, we were in heaven. We learned some tricks (get to the pool early for the best seats, eat breakfast at the cafe and lunch at the pool), and we ended up having a dream vacation... More

Aloha Lionhog, Mahalo for your review and staying with us at Grand Wailea during your family vacation! The pool is certainly busy during the summer, so your tip to get there early is advised, though many families have told us they enjoy being at the pool from 3 -5pm (when the slides close) and later as they usually then have...

My kids love the Grand Wailea, especially the water park and I thinks its a lot of fun too. If I want to spend a lot of money for a few days of family fun, then its a good place to go. Its not very romantic and the rooms are small and hallways, busy and noisy. I would not want... More

Aloha Ayesha, Mahalo for your review and staying with us this summer! We're glad to hear your family enjoyed their stay and the pools, as well as the Sunday brunch. We do have many weddings on property throughout the year, though we space them out so that no bride is ever sharing wedding time. There are quite a few events... More

We had come here to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday. There were 15 of us, in 4 rooms. We all requested 2 queen beds on the same floor, my sister ended up on a different floor. We were fooled by the great reviews of the pools and slides and water elevator. It did not live up to our expectations. To... More

Don't be lured in by the descriptions of the wonderful activity pool and exciting water slides as we were. We ended an otherwise wonderful vacation to Hawaii with our two children (ages 4 and 6) at the Grand Wailea. We stayed here because it receives some high ratings and because we thought it would be fun for our children to... More

Extraordinary accommodations for families with children. However, Camp Grande is for kids 5+ in age. We took our 4 year old there but had to remain present. Pool area fabulous. Spa experience lovely. Sunday brunch heavenly. Extremely busy pool area and beach. We were out there at 7 am to save our spots for later. We are hooked on Maui... More

The Grand Wailea is one of the best resorts I've stayed at in the world. Everything was absolutely perfect here and I can't think of anything bad to say about this hotel or the staff. My family has made four separate trips to this hotel for our yearly vacation and each time we never want to leave. The rooms are... More
