My husband and I, along with our two grown kids, stayed at the Palms at Wailea 7/3 to 7/10. The complex is beautiful and is in a great location. We had a condo with a "garden view" (#607) and the reason I gave a 4 out of 5 rating was because this condo backed onto a busy intersection. It didn't prevent us from sleeping, as the traffic dies down pretty early, but it was kind of noisy in the morning when we sat out and had our coffee and breakfast. Other than that, the condo was much nicer than I anticipated. We had two bedrooms and bathrooms, each with ample towels. There were toiletries in both so you don't really need to pack those items. There was also a hairdryer in each bathroom which I really liked. The kitchen comes fully equipped and even had dishwasher detergent, dish soap and kitchen towels. We shopped at the local Safeway and bought some food, we had breakfast most days before we set off on our adventures. A couple of times we ate breakfast at a restaurant at the Shops at Wailea, which was a short drive down the road. We even cooked out on the grill one evening and enjoyed a homemade meal. It would have been nice if there had been a bar or restaurant on the premises at the Palms, as I would have enjoyed having a drink and socializing with other guests. If you do go out for dinner and a drink, you'll definitely need a designated driver. Some restaurants don't serve alcohol, but you can take your own and they'll just charge you an opening fee. We bought some beer and wine and sat out on our patio on the evenings we came back early. We would have some drinks and snacks and talk about our day. As some of the other reviewers have mentioned, the condos are a little dated, but ours was clean and came with a washer/dryer so I didn't mind too much.
I would definitely recommend the Palms at Wailea to anyone looking for a larger place to stay at a great price. It worked out very well for me and my grown family; I also think it's a great place for families with smaller kids. The pool was nice, but the younger kids could be a little noisy at times, so I wouldn't recommend the Palms for couples wanting a quiet, romantic week!
