We are return visitors, and the Makena resort keeps getting better. The service and friendly positive attitude of the hotel staff makes a stay here into an overall enjoyable experience. The Makena location, although distant from many places, is a perfect place to relax and enjoy Maui.

I have stayed at many resorts in the Wailea area, including The Grand Wailea, the Maui Marriott and the former Renaissance hotel. This hotel offers far more. For starters, the peace and quiet in the Makena area can't be beat. And the amenities at this hotel are superb and most of them are complimentary. For starters, there are evening programs,... More

The very best value in the Wailea/Makena area. Plenty of great beach compared to the side-by side resorts in Wailea. Great food, friendly long time staff, and perfect location make it a top choice for anyone wanting a relaxing vacation, honeymoon, or anniversary.

Had a great room for our honeymoon; could use a little more extra mile care (saw some cobwebs on ceiling but really that's champagne problems). Internet being included was key. Shuttle service was outstanding! Great property overall, just know it's on the end of the island and you'll have to travel for food, etc. (only like 5-10 minutes, and the... More

Fantastic ambiance and location. Beds are VERY SOFT and caused us issues (we are not older). Sit down dining food and service was poor. Buffet food and service was great. LOVE the location and beach, snorkeling.

An absolutely beautiful place to spend a week. Great food, service and places to relax. No resort fees and included breakfast meant this was also a great value. The beach in front of the resort is probably one of the best on Maui, and is hidden away, so was never very busy. Highly recommended.

The Makena Beach and Golf Resort is a South Maui gem. This is a great resort for rest and relaxation. Everything you could possibly need, they have onsite. There are also plenty of excellent food and shopping choices near by. Loved the beautiful beach. Lots of great snorkeling and fun water activities.

Nice value. Clean, nice views, quiet, lovely central area, free bikes, no resort fee. Only downside for us was that mattress was softer than we would have liked. But this is our second visit--which tells you something.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this wonderful property for 4 nights - we couldn't have chosen a better place! I would give this place 6 stars if I could. Makena is a lovely beachfront resort at a quieter area south of Wailea with everything you could possibly need/want for a great holiday. This is not the Four Seasons -... More

We went to Makena Beach & Golf Resort for our 10 year anniversary. The resort was absolutely perfect - it was remote enough to be away from the touristy areas but close enough to shopping and restaurants to keep me happy. Small pool but who goes to Hawaii to sit at the pool?? The beach was private and stunning. I... More
