I just stayed here and I loved the place. A very gracious and helpful hotel staff, your own private beach, and the only resort in Makena Beach. The property is very green with lush and beautiful grass, gardens, and trees. I highly recommend this property and the bartender at the pool area whose is "Jay", is amazing. A very greatful... More

Great beach, hotel common area is beautiful, fitness center better than most hotels, breakfast buffet was terrific, rooms looked a bit outdated (fine for the price), some bugs (expected given open air architecture)

We have to agree with the previous reviews - what an amazing hotel in such a perfect area on Maui. I can't include all the good points in staying here so I'll stick to the main ones: amazing rooms with a lovely view of the grounds / ocean and all in-room facilities required, super quiet for a largish hotel, set...

We stayed here for our honeymoon. The staff were great so friendly. The view from our room was amazing! They also gave us champaign and chocolate covered strawberries. Didn't care for the restaurant in the hotel but everything else was awesome.

We enjoyed our stay here. We got a good price through priceline bidding. It's very large and has things to keep you entertained. The room was large with a king size bed. There was an area for the mini fridge and countertop to store your groceries. The bathroom was a good size and had all the necessities including a make... More

What a great stay. We couldn't have asked for more. There were so many positive points for this resort: 1) Friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful customer service. 2) Location. Close enough to the action of Wailea, but positioned on a secluded beach far away from the other large resorts. Easy to get to Big Beach, right down the road. 3)... More

It was a nice, quiet local hotel. The complimentary amenities were great. It was nice to not get a lot of add on fees and mysterious taxes. The staff was friendly and were laid back. Overall it was an Ok choice for a neighbor island weekend away hotel.
