First home away from home where the staff call you by name, I am impressed and look forward to being there and relax. Your staff members Thomas and Ly are outstanding and my grandchildren keep asking to go back. Lots of Aloha given to my family it is a truly great resort.

Best place to stay in Wailea/Makena area. The no resort/valet fee will save you an average of over $500/trip. Rooms are perfect size, service is off the chart. Try the Mahi-Mahi tacos and the Dancing Koi drink. You will so impressed with the staff and their friendliness and willingness to help. Golf is 5 minutes away, beautiful beach steps away.

I researched extensively before visiting Maui to find the hotel that would meet all my preferences for my family, and Makena came out on top. After staying in the resort in June, I found my expectations were exceeded. Several weeks before arriving, I called the hotel to specify a general room preference and location; in addition, I wanted to place... More

Best location if you want to stay in Wailea/Makena area and not be amongst all the tourists. Super close to Big Beach and easy access to all the Wailea shops and restaurants. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff.

We were looking for a peaceful spot and this was great. The extra distance from Wailea means the grounds & beach were less busy, but still lovely. Single swimming pool but very nice, spa pool lovely and beach is only about 50m away. Very obliging staff, comfy beds, great views of beach. The spa experience was superb, and hotel is... More

I've stayed here many times, most recently 7 nights in June-July 2014. Love the character of the place. Pros: -feel removed from busy area of Wailea - feel like you are "at the end of the road" and it's quiet. -almost all rooms have a good view, some are spectacular (pay for Oceanfront, then specify to them ahead of time...

Like many other reviewers, I'm sad to hear that Makena Beach is converting to condos. The property is beautiful, the beach is perfect- not crowded, swimmable, great snorkeling, and the staff is great! We also felt it was very convenient to the Wailea and Kihea areas, where we went every night for dinner, especially since the resort shuttle will take... More

What an absolutely wonderful resort, the facility is clean, and well maintained. We love this location - remote yet so close to shopping and restaurants. The entertainment is varied our favorite and the fire pit with smores and storytelling was wonderful!

We enjoyed the Makena Golf & Beach Resort! The Makena coast is so beautiful. We love the climate on this part of the island. We love the beach for swimming and snorkeling. We also love the pool area!!

Your facilities and staff were outstanding. We had a marvelous vacation and wish we could have stayed for a month. So sad to hear that you will no longer exist in 2016. We look forward to returning to Maui someday. Thank you!
