Everytime I had been to Maui I have always stayed at the Westin Resort on the Kaanapali side. This was the first time I had ever stayed on the Wailea side, and it was incredible. THis hotel was unbelievable. Anyone who rated it under a 4 is ridiculous.

My wife and I have been to Maui every year for the last 15 years and this was by far our best trip ever. We booked our vacation through www.greathawaiivacations.com and their knowledgeable staff pointed us in the right direction. We also saved money working with them. The description of the property, rooms and beach was exactly how they described it. We had a truly grand time at the Grand Wailea. Can't wait to go back.

My wife and I wasted a lot of money on our first trip to Hawaii. We spent five days at the Outrigger Beach in Oahu and had a great time at a great price. Then we wanted 5 days in Maui. We thought we would go big with an oceanview room at the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa. When we arrived, the oceanview room looked right into a bunch of trees. In fact, you had to be on the top two floors to even see the water. Don't bother spending for an ocean view! Several pools. One for adults only.
However, teenagers seem to find their way in there and staff rarely said anything to them. Valet service was the worst. They needed lessons from the guys at Outrigger. We waited one night for 20, after calling 10 minutes ahead, while they looked for our car they lost. Bottom of room doors has a couple inches of open space. Great if you like salamanders visiting in your room and the noisy luggage carts going past your room on squared tile...clunk...clunk! Bathrooms were large and excellent. Waterslides were nice....but there were a million kids.
For a luxury resort, you would think it was a playground! Spa was excellent, but very expensive. Room service was good. But the resort tacks on a $15 extra fee per day for special features...like using the phone....even if you don't use it! Next time, Outrigger gets all my business.

We stayed at the GW from 10/11- 10/14. This was our second trip to the resort and we stayed there at the request of our 13 yr old. He loves the pools. It is definitely a kid friendly hotel, but we only go during the off season. The beach is so nice and uncrowded in October that you can really relax. The hotel was just clean and posh as it always is, the service was excellent and I was not overwhelmed with requests to join their club. We got our $700 room at 1/2 price from the travel agent, we didn't need to buy a $2500 club package to receive 1/2 price accomodations. My only complaint was the internet service in the room.
The browser they use for the hotel does is not the most current and some sites that I needed to access for work emails were not available to me. When I complained to the front desk, they immediately refunded the fee. We will be back next year!

We just return yesterday from Maui. We spent 7 nights at the Grand Wailea. In the 10 trips to Hawaii this was the best. The staff was excellent, Lani at the front desk helped us in everyway she could to have a great stay. There were no crowds and plenty of space at the pools and beach. After reading some of the reviews prior to this vacation I was a little worried. I saw done of the problems that were mentioned in these other reviews. Maybe it was the time of the year. I had heard so much about the Four Seasons and a better place to stay for a honeymoon. We spent sometime there and found they had little more to offer and not as much in views and things to do. We certainly would return again, probably in Sept., Oct., Nov.
would be the best time to go to avoid the crowds at the pool.

Satisfied and happy.
