Our family of four absolutely enjoyed our stay at this resort. The "makena dollars" were a hit with the kids. Very friendly/courteous staff. The beach was secluded and fun too. The rooms were spacious and very clean. We loved the small details - The bathroom had a clothesline and even a kids stool to reach the sink! The resort is... More

Greatly appreciated the Hotel and staff at Makena Resort. If you like Hawaii but not the crowds on the beach like Waikiki, this is the place to stay. There are a lot of activities close by, car rentals direct from the hotel and lots of golf opportunities. The value of the stay for a 4 star is very nice also.... More

Great place to stay, kind staff. Paid about $199/night booking directly from them during labor day weekend. Wasn't very busy, but it might be because everyone already started school. Didn't find the concierge desk to be that helpful, repeated a lot of stuff I already knew or wasn't really open to throwing out ideas rather than me asking specific questions.Requested... More

There are many places you can stay in Maui so finding the right place can be a somewhat daunting task. We enjoy this Hotel for its private setting yet convenient location. No hotel to the right or left yet only a few miles to several good restaurants,hotels and happy hours. Included in the stay ,free shuttle to these locations with... More

We had a fabulous vacation at Makena Beach Resort. The staff were fantastic in every area, restaurants, valet, front desk, housekeeping, pool and beach. All staff were extremely helpful, gave great suggestions and most greeted us by name after the first day. The beach was wonderful, we went swimming every day, pool area clean and quiet, with attentive staff. Our... More

The hotel is lovely. Not too snooty yet you feel elegant when there. Rooms are large. Beds comfortable. Chairs could use update upholstery. Customer service was amazing with every person that works there. Truly terrific. Pool nice. Beach lovely. Just a great place. Quieter too than others. And won't break bank. I heard that they were considering changing makena to... More

Our room was wonderful. The staff was wonderful. The restaurant was wonderful. I wish we could have stayed longer. If you eat in the resort restaurant make sure to order the "Coconut shrimp". Fantastic. The only issues are the pool is a little small, and the resort is starting to look ready for renovation.

Spacious room & bath opening to a large peaceful balcony. The staff is friendly & helpful offering a myriad of activity choices on site and throughout the island. The "gazing at the stars" activity rocks as did the speaker and his knowledge and technology. Great snorkeling trip leaves right from the awesome beach. Overall a first class place.
