Our family loves makena surf. The property is gorgeous, beautifully landscaped. All of the rooms have amazing views. The property is large, and there are many units, but even at its busiest it doesn't seem overcrowded. It's pricey, but that's oceanfront Maui for you.

The location is awesome, the condo we had was mediocre at best. The beds are small and uncomfortable, and lots of bugs inside and out. The best part was the location and the private beach just steps away. It's likely we won't stay here again.

I stayed in a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom condo at the Makena Surf property in Maui. An amazing location within 100 yards of the sand. The overall property was constantly being groomed by landscapers, the pool (always clean) was rarely used, and the beach was absolutely perfect.

Excellent place to stay. Clean, quiet, excellent snorkeling just outside, close to great stores and restaurants. DR staff was helpful and responded to any questions or concerns. If I come back to Maui, I would definitely stay there again.

The condo was very nice and the view was fantastic. Some construction was going on next door but for the most part we did not hear it--the worker's seemed aware of us being next door. Staying in a condo was so much nicer than the crowded scenes we saw at nearby hotels. The beach is great, not crowded and there... More

The complexes are beautifically landscaped and kept. It's quiet! A204 has it all, views to die for, close to soft sandy uncrowded beach and practically our own glorious pool and spa. It's also near great restaurants and shopping.

We stayed in an ocean front 2 bedroom/2 bath condo. Interior was beautifully decorated and views of ocean and property were amazing. Location was secluded, private and quiet for a very relaxing vacation.
