This was our 3rd stay for our family at the GWR and found it to remain one in top knotch condition. Last time (Aug, '06) we stayed in the Napua Tower, but this time didn't and the only main difference I could tell was we didn't get the free food there, but the rooms weren't much different. Check in was quick and the people/service were great.
The kids loved the pool and we loved the beach, although some days couldn't get a lounge chair if we came after 11am. The rooms were clean and a good size.
We used Nanny Connection via the hotel for baby sitters for our younger kids and they were professional and the children had a great time, putting us at ease.
The restaurants were solid and Bistro Molokini seems to have upgraded its menu since our last trip. We also went to Kincha (Japanese) wh/ everyone enjoyed. The Shops at Wailea are a five minute walk away and had several good restaurants and shops.
The concierges were helpful and would strongly recommend that if you go around Xmas holiday, you book reservations in advance as things fill up pretty quickly then (less of an issue in Aug).
