We got there after staying 4 nights in Kaanapali. First thing the bell staffs were very nice, the seashell lei was lovely, the chilled towels was also a nice touch.
The gentleman who checked us in was super nice and upgraded us to an ocean view :-) The king bed was oh so comfy.
It is such a beautiful getaway :-) The buffet breakfast was wonderful overlooking their immaculate gardens.
Great location as well, beautiful beaches nearby, Wailea for some shopping, etc
The beach is so so beautiful at this hotel but I think the competitive advantage that The Makena has over other hotels is their staff.
Wow they go ABOVE and BEYOND! Everyone we met and who interacted with us were so friendly and believe it or not we really loved our hotel in Kaanapali (and we will book there again) but we will also stay here at the Makena.
We have to point out Thomas from the bell desk is amazing! Made our stay just wonderful, he did go the above and beyond! It was funny because before we left there was also another couple who was waiting specifically for Thomas to say goodbye as well.
We do recommend this hotel for couples who want a romantic getaway.
Almost forgot, the restaurant was also nice not really amazing but nonetheless nice. The trio of creme brulee is a hit for us. We also had the bouillabaise and the pastas the other nights but they were ok.
Thank you Makena and we will be back :-)
