Before vacationing at the Grand Wailea, I viewed many comments on this website. I tend to read the low rated comments to decide to visit. However, on this occasion, I booked before I read. Well, let me tell you that my experience was far from terrible. Although I would rather see the "resort fee" and "valet" worked into the price,... More

Hotel is beautiful already and we were told they are about to close many rooms for reno. Can only imagine how spectacular the place will be. We stayed in the tower which provided daily free bfast, cookie hour and cocktail reception with fantastic food. Really, if you stay in the tower you will save money on food costs. Tour the... More

The grounds and buildings are beautiful. The water slides are the reason we go. One may check in early and use the facilities all day as well as all day past check out time. The rooms are nicely appointed and quiet. There are a couple of things that I wish could be improved upon. First, the valet only parking at... More

The Grand Wailea really has it all: Beautiful grounds, spacious rooms, a caring attentive staff, and a sense of "ohana". I have taken my family to Maui more than 30 times and stayed everywhere on the island and the GWR is my favorite!!! Our most recent trip was for 5 days earlier this month and we were there when Hurricane... More

We had a wonderful time, staff was perfect. Hotel was in excellent condition. The adult only pool was a saltwater pool and was well kept. What was really nice was a trail that lead you between different fruit trees. From cherries to coca trees, and even some star fruit trees. Just a wonderful lush environment. The beach was perfect and... More

We love the Grand Wailea and usually visit twice a year, since Hawaii is such an easy jump from Los Angeles. We also have flexible schedules which allow us to go during non-peak weeks, such as the week after Thanksgiving when the occupancy is lower. Still, even during the couple of times we went during peak we still have always... More

Even though Maui has many luxurious resorts, you should select the Grand Wailea for your stay. The grounds are so lush as to almost defy belief. The ocean view rooms are comfortable and very well designed and appointed and the food quality for a large operation was surprisingly consistent and very good. I have worked out at gyms in many...

This is my 5th trip to the Grand Wailea. Unfortunately this last trip has been a major disappointment. The pool area is nice until you take a closer look. Trash everywhere. Cups and beer bottles in the bushes. I don't know if this says something about the hotel or maybe in the clientele that would throw a beer bottle into... More

We chose to stay at the grand wailea mainly because of the awesome pool. We have three children and keeping them happy and entertained is central to the enjoyment of our vacations! The pool was indeed awesome, but my kids aged 9 and two 7 year olds quickly (2 days) got bored of the pool. There was a shark attack... More

It's a glass half empty/half full experience. I agree with all the posters here; it just depends on exactly when/what you are doing that will leave such a good or such a bad impression. We came for husband's bankruptcy attorney convention; family of 4; our girls are 12 and 14. Anyone staying here should know what to expect - a... More
