My wife and I stayed for 7 days at the Makena Beach & Golf Resort the first week in July 2011. We had a great time! The resort was beautiful and spaceous. Our room was on the second floor and had an almost full-on view of the beach and ocean with the west Maui mountains in the background. It was breath-taking. The staff at the resort certainly have the aloha feeling. They always made us feel so special and welcome. Each time we'd return to the resort they would welcome us back and ask us about our day. They seemed truly interested. We ate 2 times at the Molokai Bar and Grill and it was excellent both times. David waited on us and he seemed like a true friend. The Mai Tai's were great! The beach was great, and we never had any problem getting chairs and towels. The water was crystal clear (but a bit cool). We booked the deluxe snorkeling trip with the Kai Kanani 2 and we loved the fact that we boarded it right from the Makena Resort beach! This resort was exactly what we were looking for - secluded, but so close to everything else that we wanted to do on the island. We would return again in an instant!
