I stayed 4 nights as part of a wedding party in August 2015, with the wedding & reception on premises. Rooms are spacious and service was excellent. Backs right onto private beach. Good overall value.

Great place, beautiful grounds, beach kid friendly, food good at best. Clean comfortable rooms, great staff. Close to town, close to other great beaches. Easy in easy out. Lava field right down the road. Very nice.

We had a great experience here for the first portion of our honeymoon on Maui. We found that the service and staff were great in general, and appreciated the variety of amenities. It felt like there was a ton of options, but it was still a personal and fairly quiet experience - not overcrowded or burdensome like some larger resorts.... More

The restaurants, food quality and service are fantastic. The beach is quiet (as is the hotel), but the beach and pool staff are great. It's a well manicured and clean hotel, without a lot of bells and whistles. We would consider going back.

if you're looking for a smaller less busy resort then this might be the place for you. This was a family get away so we did not have an opportunity to take advantage of some of the amenities, but still enjoyed our stay. There is not a kid pool so if you have younger kids (5 and under) keep that... More

Certainly it could be said that the Makena could use a bit of a face-lift but in every other regard it was an excellent hotel and our 5 nights there were very special indeed. All the staff were great; the pool and beach location were superb, the activities offered on the kids 'Keiki' dollars were fantastic (lovely tennis club too)... More

This place was so amazing. The staff were great, the room was clean and spacious. The view was breathtaking. When you're here don't miss the chance to go swim with the turtles, we did it everyday and it is something I will never forget. If you go to Maui this is the only place to stay!

Great value. Staff was great, beautiful location, and rooms were clean. The beach was one of the nicest I had ever been to. The location was a little out of the way, but it was perfect for us. My wife and I really enjoyed our visit and will return.

Locates far end on Wailea but lovely beach and remote from other place that I liked it quiet and peaceful. Staffs were very friendly and overall I was happy with where I stayed. I wished pools were bigger and nicer but its older resort so it wasn't so bad.

After reading some of the reviews I was a little nervous about making a reservation but however all that was put to ease once we arrived at the resort. We stayed in the ocean front suite and the view was magnificent. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and they provided us a lovely snack gift basket already in the suite... More
