“Makena Beach & Golf Resort is "Grand"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

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!!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd level. The resort was very quiet at night to get a wondeful night sleep on their...

Recently had my wedding ceremony and reception here. From start to finish, the service was top-notch. Their wedding coordinator, Holly, held our hand through the entire process and made it all so easy. The wait staff was on point all night long and took impeccable care of us and all our guests.

Grounds are gorgeous and gave us endless compliments on all of our photos.

Room Tip: suites had fantastic pool and ocean views

Located in beautiful Wailea this Resort has been a pleasure to return again and again. The beach is beautiful, the property is well manicured and only a few minutes from famous Makena state park, Shops of Wailea and some of the best snorkling spots. The staff is friendly and the price of stay is resonible.

The Makena Beach & Golf Resort was an amazing venue for beginning our honeymoon. It's tucked away on the south side of Wailea and had amazing ocean and mountain views. The staff were accommodating and extremely friendly. Leaving our sliding doors open at night lent amazing ocean sounds and our oceanfront massage was a great, yet very affordable experience - especially given what similar amenities cost elsewhere. The pool is nothing special, but there's no reason to frequent it (besides the poolside snack shack) because the beach is so good. For the value, I would definitely go back were I to return to Maui.

Room Tip: As close to the ocean as possible, preferably on an upper floor for the views and to avoid other roo...

the price was excellent, but more importantly i had to find good reviews before i would commit and all the reviews after the change in ownership have been excellent! so we booked.
I think the best thing we can say about this resort is we would 100% come back again!
very clean building, very friendly and helpful staff! room was always spotless, the cleaning lady even would fold our clothes!
and yes the pool is tiny, but with a beach that is excellent size and never busy there is no reason to spend the day at the pool.
breakfast buffet was top notch, omelette station, plenty of hot foods and they change one item each day, full fruit and cereals. wait staff very friendly and attentive!
we didn't try the restaurant or the day spa, so no comments.
it is at the end of the road so to speak so a car is a must if you plan on leaving the resort.
for the price this is a real gem...

Makena resort will always be my choice when I visit Maui. The service is impeccable. I like Makena because it is a small, by comparison with other resorts on the island, and quiet. I cannot say enough about the service...everyone is so kind and they recognize you by name. I spent most of my time at the beach or by the pool and both were very, very relaxing. My only complaint is that the seafood buffet is overpriced and not very good but the breakfast buffet is wonderful.

Room Tip: Always get a room with a full ocean view.

Thank you for the review, we are happy that our deep commitment to aloha and hospitality was evident to you during the course of your stay. We are glad to have provided such a level of service. We are sorry that you felt that our our dinner buffet was overpriced, please know that our buffet with the many action stations and selection is comparable and at times much lower in price than our counterparts throughout Maui. Regardless, we are happy that you were able to enjoy yourself and relax while on Maui and hope to welcome you back to the property sometime soon! Aloha a hui ho.

My wife and I decided to stay here for the first few nights of our honeymoon. Makena is not as much of a tourist spot so it's a great place to enjoy Maui in a relaxing atmosphere. The service at the resort was incredible. We were treated like royalty from the minute we pulled up! The beach is also amazing and very private. It's right in front of the resort! We were able to snorkel at the beach and see tons of fish. The rooms were clean and the decks were very large! Great resort! Highly recommend!!
