We stayed here a couple of weeks before Christmas. We were able to relax, recharge and really enjoy ourselves. The room was great. In fact, all the rooms have at least a partial ocean view. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful and make you feel welcomed. Ron Chapman at the front desk... More

There is no place better to be than Makena Beach & Golf Resort. Great views, good food, awesome staff, activities, rest, relaxation, golf....it just doesn't get better! The beach is close with rentals to use. The pool staff with fresh pineapple and cool cloths are a great addition.

not a bad hotel, but the overall polish and service quality was underwelming. the breakfast buffet is a joke. The ocean suite is a nice setup but lacks lights in the main room (only 2 weak lights). the wifi was very unreliable.

All positive reviews here are quite accurate. Makena is so peaceful and isolated. Just what I like and am always looking for. I hope this property is not closing or changing into condos as mentioned. I hope to return ASAP.

We first came to this hotel in 1993. We have been back probably 10 times and annually since 2006. It is not for everyone but it suits us very well. It is not like the glam resorts in Wailea or the high density of Kaanapali. It is quiet, secluded, peaceful, and had the best hotel beach on Maui. It is... More

Would stay again. The checkin staff was efficient. The pool was nice and the pool bar. The beach is lovely . You can snorkel boogie board right out in front ! Paddle board and see many turtles! Everything was perfect.

Conveniently located. Great beach with great snorkeling. Pool area was average. But it's Maui, so we slept and minor hanging out at hotel, so it absolutely served its purpose. Would stay here again...

The hotel is quite nice although a little dated. Furnishings in room and floors coverings have an 80's look to them. The best thing at this property is its fantastic location in Makena. Hotel is right on one of the best beaches of any hotel on the island. Also, things are not crowded at the beach, or anywhere else, as... More

Like me, the Makena Beach and Golf Resort is showing its age. Lots of issues. Shower in our bathroom was barely a trickle and lukewarm.....at best. Ceramic tile flooring throughout the hotel are cracked, stained and in need of total replacement. Doesn't look very inviting to see chipped soiled tiles. The free wifi worked much of the time but not... More

A beautiful, wonderful and amazing relaxing resort. I will definitely return. The hotel, location and the staff made the entire experience awesome, If I could live there I would. The staff made me feel like a princess, it was a truly great visit. The rooms are simply amazing and luxurious. Mahalo!! Five stars
