10 out of 10 in every aspect! Our honeymoon was better than anyone could have planned b/c of this resort and the staff. Don't look anywhere else. And utilize the concierge and bill to the room options. Simple and worry free

The pool area is very low class for a high end hotel.The pool is very small. It was quite disappointing. Small hot tub. Pool bar closes too early.The staff is very friendly and helpful! The resort is very well kept.

Overall, everything was awesome, especially the staff. The exterior of the hotel is absolutely beautiful! The food was just too pricey for our budget. Carpet seems to need cleaning or replaced. Maholo!

We were wonderfully surprised at how laid back, comfortable and reasonably priced this hotel was. Not paying resort, parking or internet costs was a big plus as was the shuttle to Wailea. Wonderful staff, all of the amenities and beautiful location made this a hotel I would definitely go back to again. We also got a discount with my BCAA... More

I highly suggest this great resort to anyone. :) it was perfect for families. The food was awesome! The service was great! all round perfect! Unfortunately they plan on changing it to a private resort in the year 2016. I hope not. It is so great! I would go back in a heart beat. :)

If you are looking for a quite, clean, friendly, & accommodating resort, this is the place to stay! Everyone was so welcoming & helpful! The hotel in itself was beautiful, I loved the mahogany trim. The beach being a quick walk was also a great feature & the best part being not so many people!!

First trip to Maui and Makena Beach & Golf Resort this past July for our Honeymoon! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay. The staff was awesome. The view and grounds are beyond beautiful. Love how private the beach was, it was never crowded no matter the time of day. Everything about this resort was so... More

My husband and I just stayed at the Makena Beach and Golf resort. First, I have to point out the positives. First, our view of the ocean was unexpected and beautiful! Because we booked through Hotwire (great deal!!), we expected a parking lot view, but since we needed a quick stay, that was fine by us. Instead, we got a... More
