We are already planning our next vacation and plan on staying at Makena Beach and Golf Resort. The resort staff are all so kind and helpful. Our room was clean. The beach is the best for snorkeling - lots of turtles and fish to see. Would like to see a bigger pool or more pools, but we survived. We were... More

The Makena Resort is an absolute Paradise! The staff is so wonderful, especially Jeff and Keoki at the Beach Shack. The breakfast buffet food is a perfect way to start your day. The hospitality suite for late flights is just the cherry on top.

I highly recommend this hotel! If you want the feel of an island, this is the place. It doesn't have 5 other hotels sharing the same beach so you are truly a bit secluded from the world. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There is a rumor that the owner is going to build more on the property with... More

Nice staff, but the interior is dated and it would've been nice if beach equipment was complimentary. Also, the pool area is old school with '50s-esque music and an above ground hot tub. Shuttle into wailea is convenient and a nice extra.

We visited the property when we booked a snorkeling trip that leaves from the resort. I was immediately not impressed with the pool area. We didn't know it at time but we had a flight cancel when leaving Maui. United has an agreement with Makena Beach & Golf Resort and booked rooms for the passengers since we had to stay... More

My wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope that the rumors Of this place going out of business to sell condos isn't true. It would be a loss to the island they have the best beach on the island with the best snorkeling and the loss of this establishment would be devastating

This was our 3rd trip back. We like the entire ambiance & feeling of the resort. It is situated in a great spot with great beach. The food prices are very reasonable for a resort setting. Rooms & grounds are kept clean and it is a pleasure staying there.

What a surprisingly wonderful place to stay! I only had one night here after being in Kapalua and Hana - Makena was my last night before departing Maui. Every single staff person I encountered was sincerely friendly and very accommodating. By chance I happened to be at the pool on my way to the beach after check in - and... More

I am so glad I changed my booking and swapped to stay here. From checking in with Ron on the Front Desk to leaving 4 nights later I was not disappointed. It isn't cheap but you can walk from your room to the beach and that is just worth paying the extra! I heard a lot of talk about some... More
