My wife and I stayed at Makena during a business meeting. It was the best getaway I could have imagined. The rooms were very nice, spacious and kept very clean. It was obviously one of the original luxury resorts on the island. the grounds and environment were spectacular. So much to do on the island, no way were could have seen it all in 1 week, but the concierge helped us get in as much local flavor as possible. We had a very romantic renewal of our wedding vows on the "secret cove". It is the most southern resort on the leeward side of the island making it less crowded with the most spectacular sunsets. I just can't wait to go back to paradise.
