Would stay again. The checkin staff was efficient. The pool was nice and the pool bar. The beach is lovely . You can snorkel boogie board right out in front ! Paddle board and see many turtles! Everything was perfect.

Conveniently located. Great beach with great snorkeling. Pool area was average. But it's Maui, so we slept and minor hanging out at hotel, so it absolutely served its purpose. Would stay here again...

The hotel is quite nice although a little dated. Furnishings in room and floors coverings have an 80's look to them. The best thing at this property is its fantastic location in Makena. Hotel is right on one of the best beaches of any hotel on the island. Also, things are not crowded at the beach, or anywhere else, as... More

Like me, the Makena Beach and Golf Resort is showing its age. Lots of issues. Shower in our bathroom was barely a trickle and lukewarm.....at best. Ceramic tile flooring throughout the hotel are cracked, stained and in need of total replacement. Doesn't look very inviting to see chipped soiled tiles. The free wifi worked much of the time but not... More

A beautiful, wonderful and amazing relaxing resort. I will definitely return. The hotel, location and the staff made the entire experience awesome, If I could live there I would. The staff made me feel like a princess, it was a truly great visit. The rooms are simply amazing and luxurious. Mahalo!! Five stars

My wife and I been to Hawaii three times and visited six islands. We have stayed at resorts each trip and have gotten pretty familiar with what works and what doesn’t. And Makena Golf & Beach Resort definitely works. It starts with great on-line booking direct on the hotel site – you won’t get a better deal. The staff is... More

This resort is ideal for families or couples. The rooms are large with beautiful ocean or garden views. The entire resort is remarkably well kept and clean. The restaurants are great with great quality food and variety. The service and people that work here make this resort even a better experience. Best of all, the private beach was awesome with...

After staying north of Lahaina for 5 nights, we ended our trip at the Makena resort. It was a relaxing change...no traffic, less crowded and a real vacation experience. Beach was beautiful, beautiful places to walk near property, no scrambling for lounge chairs by pool. Food was excellent, nice happy hour, free parking and NO resort fee...how do you beat... More

We had an ocean front room for 1 week in September. Away from the crowds but close enough to enjoy the rest of Maui too. Great beach. We enjoyed a guided snorkel with Jay at the beach. He was excellent. Michelle, at the front desk helped us to communicate back to home with a fax. She and all the hotel... More

We are frequent travelers and come to Maui each year. We always need a few nights before our week at the Marriott Maui Ocean Club and spin the Priceline wheel. When this resort came up for us we had never heard of it, but the reviews on TripAdvisor were promising. Well – we LOVED it! Our girls (age 8 and... More
