Really happy with our vacation at this resort. The Makena/Waillea area is Mose upscale than other areas of Maui. Loved this hotel for the free parking, no resort fees, free wifi, lovely welcome basket and special nightly chocolates. Also, different packages get you extra gifts as well. I recommend the pre pay rate if you can. Good rate and free... More

We love this resort- away from the touristy areas- but close enough to shopping and golf. Best snorkeling in Hawaii is right off beach. Staff is very attentive and go out of their way to make your visit wonderful. Went for a morning run and the valet had cold water bottle for me when I got back... Beautiful grounds and... More

We loved everything about the Makena. The room was a good size and very clean. We had a beautiful view from our balcony. The staff were all personable and friendly and helpful. We thought the breakfast buffet was great every morning and appreciated the effort to have some different choices every day. I would heartily recommend the Makena to everyone.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days at the beginning of our trip last summer. It was such a good value, and we liked it so much, that we brought our adult kids with us this summer! The hotel is not as high end as something like the Fairmont, but it is an excellent resort for... More

Comfortable, well furnished accommodation, great views and well maintained facility. Restaurants could have provided better value for money, in terms of the quantity of food served. The concierge could have been warmer and more helpful with her inputs.

Wonderful (albeit quick!) stay at Makena. We started here, then travelled to Kaanapali area. We wish we stayed here the whole time! It was quiet, with a beautiful beach and outstanding service. It's definitely not the most up-to-date hotel in the Wailea area, but it has everything you need, it's clean, the rooms are large, the beach front is beautiful,... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. I like that the hotel doesn't nickel and dime its guests by charging for every little extra. (I borrowed a bicycle for free.) The staff is friendly, the rooms large and comfortable. The only problem we had was with housekeeping. Twice, we were out of the room for five hours in the middle of... More

We ended up in Maui for an extra day thanks to flight problems, and decided to stay at Makena Resort on our last extra day. Overall, the stay was good, the value was good, but there are better rooms to be had in the area if you're looking for the best experience. When we arrived the staff was very friendly... More

There's no need to pay extra for late checkout. They'll let you use a hospitality room for half an hour to take a shower and change. In doing so, we were able to enjoy the pool and the beach after checkout while waiting for our red-eye flight. Pool staff were very attentive and courteous.
