My family was very comfortable with the 2 queen beds, great in room coffee, and the palms outside our room. We enjoyed your restaurant for a few dinners and the food options just minutes away like Antonios Italian what a memeory. No resort parking fee with valet parking was an added comfort car rite in front when we needed. We... More

I will continue to stay at this resort because of the service provided. The folks who work there are so polite and professional. Denise Hoopai is a true professional.The only improvement that concerns me, is upgrading the gym facility. Treadmill is fine but the strength machines are weak.

We had an amazing time in Makena. The location, amenities, staff, weather (despite power outage from TS Iselle) were all wonderful. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Maui. There are civilities for every age. We shared a romantic dinner for two in a private cabana with our very own butler. Superb food and service!!

This hotel is a great value, especially if you are looking for a quiet retreat in which to relax. The pool is tiny but the beach is huge! The hotel is approx 10 minutes from Wailea and 20 min from Kihei but the road is great, with very little traffic and oceanview.

Great service all round. Especially the staff at the pool bar. Those guys are a real asset. Lovely to have a relaxed few days after the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. Snorkelling off the coast was ok but sandy beach makes it a bit murky. Still saw sea turtles though. Food was great and a pretty good price. We had... More

The staff at this hotel works as hard as any, but frankly, the facility is tired. It is clean, friendly and adequate because of these hardworking folks, but there's only so much lipstick you can put on a pig. Location: situated in the Wailea area with really swanky neighbors (Four Seasons, Fairmont, Grand Wailea, to name a few). This hotel... More

Nice big resort. Good location. Great beach. Lots of amenities. Its isolation is both a blessing and a curse. 10-20 minute drive to Wailea/Kihei. But, take advantage of the resort shuttle to Wailea...

Literally the nicest staff I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I thought it would be slightly outside of my budget, but it was worth every penny and more. Do pay for the breakfast package because they actually serve good food. Do go snorkeling on their boat and take the helicopter tour. Honestly the concierge will not steer you... More

Overall experience was good. We had some issues at check in because we were not given the room type we had requested and that had been confirmed. The rest of he stay was fine. Pool and beach were great.
