Thank you for providing a wonderful spot for my daughter to get married. The staff and management went above and beyond our expectations and imprinted a positive memory for our family and my daughter. If we have an opportunity to return to Hawaii, we will be back. I look forward to the golf course reopening. Aloha and Mahalo!

Really enjoyed our stay at Makena. The personalized service was the main highlight, every staff member made a positive impact on our stay. The resort is smaller than most, but that was mostly appreciated.... it had everything yo need, and you don't need to flag down a golf cart to get around. Rooms were good, not great, and the beds...

Makena is the best Maui has to offer... not pretentious, just right in beautiful grounds, best beach, great people. Hawaii for and by real people. Rooms are good size. Beds very comfortable. Lanai had views of ocean, pool and mountains. Housekeeping sharp and friendly... Best before the insurance convention arrived, but Makena handled them very well and didn't mare our... More

I really loved this place for the closeness to the southern beaches, the quiet ambience, price, and convenience of shuttles and other accommodations. Molokini tours were right outside, which gave me plenty of time to sleep in from the Luau fun the night before. The area isn't as touristy and biking around the state park was very enjoyable.

We choose this hotel because it was secluded yet only a five minute drive to the Wailea area and about a half hour to Lahainia & Paia. The beach was beautiful and never crowed. There are plenty of beach and pool chairs at all hours of the day. The rooms were a little dated but very clean. It had all... More

This was our 2nd year in a row. This is a "lower frill" resort, but that doesn't take away from the comfort. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, pool is small but adequate, and beach access is perfect

My husband and I just returned from a week long stay at the Makena beach and golf resort. Only where's the golf? No where in their marketing lets you know that they have closed their courses. My husband had golfed here before and was looking forward to golfing again. Disappointing to say the least. We noticed that some patrons received... More

Aloha, we are sorry to hear that you stay was not as you have hoped. The Makena Golf Course is currently undergoing a lengthy beautification process which we do mention on our resort website. Regardless we do still consider ourselves a golf destination with our close proximity to the Wailea Golf Courses. We do offer our guest special resort rates... More

Finishing up our 5 day stay. Room is large, nice flat screen and Tommy Bahamas bath products. Took snorkel boat right from the beach and saw dolphins, flying fish, turtles and best of all, whales. The hotel got much more crowded when a large insurance convention checked in and much more noisy. But hey, that's business. Before they arrived, the... More

Aloha, glad to hear that you had a wonderful stay with us and that you were able to take advantage of the catamaran that docks right on the beach fronting the resort. We will be sure to pass on your compliments to our pool bar staff, especially Big C. Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. More
