Gorgeous property. Staff very professional. Evening entertainers, especially on Sunday and Monday nights, very talented and enjoyable. The morning cafe breakfast, especially when part of the room rate, is a great addition. It is the farthest hotel south from Wailea but that is a plus.

Stayed at Makena for 10 days and wish I was still there. Read the reviews on the site as well as internet, and was anxious to see what it would really be like. No disappointment! Everything was superb. Very nice location. Great beach in front of the resort. Service and Staff was excellent. Ron at the front desk is the... More

This place is fantastic and great value for money. It's the last hotel in the South of Maui but still close enough to drive to many of the attractions and restaurants and beaches of the island. Room: We had a South side room on the top floor overlooking the lawns. We had a partial ocean view which was very nice.... More

Enjoyed our stay at Makena. The hotel and grounds were wonderful. The views were dramatic and unrestricted by other hotels, etc.... We really enjoyed the bike rental and accessibility to great beaches for swimming and snorkeling. The food in the restaurant was top-notch. The Hawaiian speciality food dinner was memorable.

First off, I would like to just say, the staff at this resort are astoundingly nice and helpful. My husband and I stayed in several places on our honeymoon and the people at this resort were just so incredibly friendly. For the price, this is a good resort. It is a lot cheaper than the resorts in Wailea right next... More

I liked the location of Makena Beach Resort----at the end of the resort row, set by itself on a nice property---not big and impersonal like some of the more well-known resorts. This created a nice feel of relaxation and out of the traffic and crowds further north in Wailea. It was also well-placed for snorkel trips to Molokini. The boat... More

Have stayed at this Resort several times since the 90's when it was the Prince. Loved it then and love it now. The staff is excellent and makes us feel so welcome. All of the restaurant and lounge servers are wonderful. The hotel is comfortable and relaxed with one of the best beaches on Maui right outside the door. We... More

Stayed for 4 nights, very peaceful and quiet. it's locate at the end of the road on the south side of the island, and about 30 to 40 minutes from the major junction near the airport. dining in the immediate area is pricy but a 10 minute drive to Kihei will offer more affordable meals. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, beautiful... More

Simply amazing. Beautiful location, set a bit away from the rest of the resorts. Everyone was so friendly to us and helpful with any questions/requests that we had. Room was awesome with a great view of the beach and ocean. Can't wait to go back again next year and spend more time on that amazing beach!! Thank you!
