Wow, what an amazing time my husband & I had for 10 glorious days & nights at this incredible resort. The property itself is just remote enough to be beyond compare to any of the other hotels in the area.The grounds and beach areas are immaculate and pristine. The staff display the true Aloha spirit, are great at what they... More

we had a great time. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet is fantastic. The beach and pool was enjoyable and not crowed. The surf was up ( which was a good thing) and although it's away from town you can always take the shuttle ( great service )

It's a polished classic. Clean, quiet and relaxed. Staff is amazingly friendly and knowledgeable. You'd think that the place would be run down and the staff would be heading for the doors now that the resort is being closed down and being converted into luxury condos sometime in 2016. Not the case. Go there while you can (esp if you... More

This hotel is the last one in Wailea making it very quiet location. The setting is very beautiful with its gardens and the beach location. The breakfast is the best and the menu is different each day. The staff is the best and are more than helpful.

I stayed at Makena Beach & Golf Resort in early January 2015. The hotel itself is a bit dated but there have been renovations throughout. If you have a keen sense for details, you'll notice remnants of a bygone time; such as a rusty tub with a newly installed spigot, granite counter-tops against floor tiles laid 2 decades ago, or...

Very nice resort, great deal through Costco.com. Make sure and add the daily buffet breakfast to your package to save money. No other eating opportunities within 4 miles except for resort. Resort is last hotel going south. Next to state park and beaches. Staff was very helpful. No golf available though courses close by. Great beach.

Very friendly and accomodating staff. Complimentary valet parking and internet was wonderful. They even provided complimentary golf clubs for my son to use during our stay. The property was lovely and located right on a large uncrowded beach. We enjoyed our visit very much.

Enjoy beautiful south Maui at the Makena Beach & Gulf Resort. Unlike the massive Fairmount or Grand Wailea complexes, this resort is comfortably sized. Even the partial ocean views are wonderful. Complimentary bottles of water and Tommy Bahama bath products are very nice touches. We enjoyed every minute of our six-day stay this month (January). The breakfast package is a... More
