After a Lovely breakfast buffet, with the best berries and pineapple I've ever tasted, we wandered to the beach for a perfect hour of walking, sitting, and being mesmerized by the waves. May is the absolute perfect time to visit. It's uncrowded so you get lots of attention. And it's not so noisy with families and kids. Pauline at the... More

Great views of Molokini, Lanai, and West Maui. Near shops at Wailea and Kihei for lots of dining options, but far enough away to avoid noise and crowds. Service was outstanding from ALL the staff. Never heard any other guests (quiet) at night - and we had newlyweds staying next door! Dive/snorkel boat pulls right up to the beach in... More

This place does an over the top job to make your stay wonderful and enjoyable. The front desk was quick to address after hours noise complaints. They were so hospitable and even offer a room to shower in after you checked out but visited a beach as well. Great place to stay.

Checked in late in evening due to delayed flight. Andy at front desk checked us in and even opened Barista so we could purchase much needed food. Waiters poolside were great as we cheered on Cavs. Mother's Day Brunch at Molokini was amazing for my wife. Mahalo!

Our flight was overbooked so we were put up here. Best place to be "stuck" in Hawaii! The staff was top-notch. They were all so happy and accommodating. We were put on a red-eye flight out and they stored our baggage for us while we got to enjoy the pool and beach all day. They even let us use a... More

Our family stayed at Makena Beach Resort in November. From the moment you step into the lobby, you feel instantly like you are on a Hawaiian vacation. There are cool Hawaiian quilts hung throughout the lobby as art, and several other native sculptures on display that add to the ambience of this gem of a hotel. When you enter the... More

We love this hotel for its understated beauty and peaceful atmosphere. They don't charge you for extras like valet parking or even self parking or a resort fee. The grounds are quiet and well maintained, the beach is beautiful.

The resort needs a lot of upkeep, I did hear that it would be closing for 2 years for a renovation. Lets hope they don't raise their rates, and go back to being excellent. This is a great beach resort other wise.

The resort is quiet and the view of makena beach is superb. The staff are friendly and the room is clean although a little bit dated. One thing I like the resort most is the swimming pool. It is 6 feet deep so you can really have some real swimming there and the water is warm too. The location of... More

I visited this resort with my friend from France in April 2015. This is my first review as a Trip Advisor Member, though I have used their website many, many times. Like others, I relied on Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews of all the hotel possibilities on Maui. Obviously, one reads positive as well as not so positive reviews for... More
