this was my first time to Maui. There are alot of hotels/beaches. Makena Beach & Golf Resort was a perfect pick. Makena Resort sits at the south tip end, which enhances a more private, quiet, and perfect get-a-way. Luxury says it all here, and dont forget to include the complimentary breakfast, which is just "Grand". Evening dining food is also exquisive & delicious, and their gift shops, pool, baristas, beach accessories, complimentary events, tour guides, etc just adds to all the wonderful things Makena does for its guests. There is no question of where ill be a guest when i visit maui again as Makena will be my choice. Luxury at its best with a reasonable cost! Love you Makena! Hope to see you again soon!!
