This was our fourth stay at Makena, and the experience has been wonderful each time. The relaxed atmosphere, fantastic and friendly service, and wonderful rooms, pool, and beach can't be beat. There's a rumor they're closing next June. Say it ain't so! Highlights: breakfast everyday at Cafe Kiowai, Kai Kanani cruises leave right from the beach-- great company!, the ocean... More

The location of the hotel is amazing! The beach is calm and secluded, so you can just sit and watch the sunset without a lot of people and kids running around. The water is completely clear, and you can actually swim with sea turtles (the beach is part of "turtle town"). Aside from that, the property is nice but needs... More

We booked the Makena resort due to the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. We also enjoyed not having to pay a resort fee like most of the other properties on Maui. We had a great anniversary stay and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. We rode the shuttle bus to a close-by Luau and did not have to worry about watching how much... More

Just returned from a 6 night stay, and have mixed feelings about this place. First, the VERY VERY good:: The Makena B%G conforms, without a doubt, to the First Rule of Resorts: The older the place is, the better the location. This makes sense, as the older places got their first! This place is a classic, and its location, right... More

Excellent package for the value! We had free Alamo-rental car, free breakfast buffet for two each day, free valet and self parking, free shuttle to Wailea. Makena has a casual and relaxing vibe to the hotel and nice shuttle service to the Shops at Wailea! The hotel has a beautiful family friendly beach for playing in the waves. I would... More

If you can find the right package this resort can be great value. This was our second stay here and it was as relaxing as the first. Located right on one of the best beaches in south Maui, this resort is much quieter and laid back that any of the others in the area. Staff was overall super friendly and... More
