Stayed for a week. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. We booked partial Oceanview, but upgraded to ocean front. Well worth it, room 431 directly in the middle. Perfect view of sunset from the lanai and even the bedroom. Great little bar area in the room. Some reviews have it a little dated. I do agree, ie the toilet... More

Delightful spot for a brief 2 night stay in Maui near a well preserved and less crowded beach for a romantic getaway or family outing. I picked it up with a hotwire deal and am pleased that I did for the price. My room with a big patio(lānai) had one of the best views of their out door gardens with... More

Have been to the islands 100 plus times. If you want best weather, no crowds, great service, super quiet beach, this is your spot. Careful at the breakfast buffet. You may not want to eat the rest of the day. Its that good

I would not recommend or return to this resort. The pool areas are in desperate need of something that indicates you are in a tropical resort and not some cheap mainland rest and go. Our room was located across from a service door that staff had no problem letting the door slam at all hours of the night. Our last... More

This was our second visit to Makena Beach & Golf Resort. We can't say enough about the location - at the end of the road, it is easy to get to and has an excellent beach. Overall the service was very good from the concierge to the ever so helpful cleaning staff and pool/beach attendants, however we found the front... More

We had a delightful time staying at Makena! The staff, food, activities, location were all top class. The breakfast buffet option was a great bonus and highly recommend it in the booking. Also book in advance (90 days) for the best deals.

As is accustomed at most any place you go in Maui the staff at the Makena Beach Resort (there's no golf there anymore so I refuse to call it that, lol) was extremely nice & helpful during our stay. The one thing this hotel has on the other Wailea/Makena properties is a decent size beach. The rest of the hotel/property... More

My boyfriend and I had our flight canceled, Air Canada gave us this hotel to stay at. Bell man greeted me with a lae. Service was great and super friendly. It was a night flight that was cancelled. By the time we got back to the Resort Room Service was suppose to be closed. The hotel kept it open late... More

We visited the Makena Beach & Golf Resort for the first time this April. We have stayed at other resorts in the Wailea area but decided on Makena because of the great reviews, location and value. We were pleasantly surprised by the fantastic guest service. Each hotel staff member that I spoke with seemed to have a genuine interest in... More

I just spent the last 6 most wonderful days of my 67 years. I have stayed at other hotels on Maui and will NEVER stay any where else. Every employee was friendly and helpful and obviously remembered me from day to day. Every where was spectacularly clean and the grounds we planted well and portrayed Hawaiian ambience. I want to...
