My wife and I had an amazing stay at the 4 Seasons Wailea. We booked via Amex FHR, we had a great King Ocean view room. Large lanai, large room. The Amex booking includes a basic continental breakfast buffet that we upgraded for 10$ per day to the full buffet breakfast.
As one of the other reviewers pointed out there was one night that they had to do a required electrical upgrade, they warned us well in advance the electricity in the entire resort would be off for a few hours in the middle of the night, one of the other reviewers complained about this, but it doesn't seem like there was any alternative and it didn't really impact us much at all except for the one night when it was a bit warm but no real big deal.
The resort overall was amazing, very helpful staff at every turn. No problems getting a pool chair or beach chairs, the adult pool is on the small side with limited seating but hey, its a big resort, go to the beach! I can imagine that during peak times the pool areas can get quite crowded so if you flexible I would avoid those times, we went the week after thanksgiving and the crowds had cleared out so the place was not crowded. If you can't hit an off time you should definitely expect a crowd.
Most of the things I have seen people complain about in these reviews are often one time events or are small things that seemed to cause an inordinate amount of distress to the reviewer i.e. the princess and the pea. The other common complaint is about the cost, yep the hotel is expensive, yes that includes the room, the food, the spa... whatever, its not like you don't know that going in...not sure what people were expecting, Maui is expensive and this is the most expensive (or perhaps second most) place on the island.
However, if you are looking for a great resort vacation, relaxation, sun, and fun in Maui and you have a good sized budget for your trip, look no further.
Also you should check out Eskimo Candy in Kihei for Poke at some point, go early they run out, get a Poke bowl...you won't regret it!
