We went with 2 other couples. On our own, we would have opted for the Four Seasons but that resort was too pricey for them. I only bring this up because my husband and I are converts and would opt for Makena again. The Makena Beach and Golf resort is not, in our collective opinion, a resort - it's more... More

I choose to stay at Makena Beach Resort for my girlfriend’s birthday getaway, which we really enjoyed. From the moment we checked-in to the minute we checked-out the staff was accommodating and welcoming. We couldn't be more pleased with the beachfront view and variety of activities the resort had to offer.

This is the best place to stay in Maui. They are going to turn it into condos soon so please go experience this asap. The snorkeling just off of the beach is worth the trip. Turtles everywhere! The rooms are clean; the food is good; the breakfast is wonderful; the ambiance cannot be beat.

Everything is excellent except: #1. No two-queen bed room provided though reserved with two queen bed room requested. #2. Free internet couldn't send email by outlook using SMTP, I have to use my own WiFi Hotspot to send email using outlook. But no problem to send email using Hotmail, Gmail...etc.. Overall still feel excellent. Thank you!

Wonderful resort, clean, peaceful, private beach, snorkeling, accommodating staff. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Perfect location for sunsets and just relaxing. Plenty to see and experience all across this island so rent a car and plan day trips. Roads to many of the best views are narrow with many S turns which accommodate a jeep or smaller... More

My husband and I just stayed 5 nights for our anniversary/honeymoon. No resort fees and free parking everyday was awesome! The staff was amazing! From the valet to baggage to concierge to cleaning staff to front desk to restaurant and shop staff, everyone who works there. Two ordinary people like us were made to feel important. We were helped with... More

Wonderful resort, clean, peaceful, good location, private beach, snorkeling, accommodating staff. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Close to different activities. Contacted the concierge before our trip and set up different activities.

I stayed here for 8 nights in February and was pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. On my last visit, I stayed up the road at the Fairmont, so I was expecting a drop off by staying here. While the room isn't as big or fancy as the Fairmont, it was a great room. The bed was comfortable... More
