Grand Wailea - A Waldorf Astoria Resort
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Wailea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 1, 2013

The hotel is is very ornate with exquisite decor - in excellent taste!
Spectacular view from room - front and center located on top floor with panoramic ocean view!
Property location right on a great family friendly beach with snorkeling.
The pool is amazing complete with nine slides, swinging rope, volleyball net, sandy beach pool, swim up pool bar, jacuzzies galore, lagoon to float around the entire acres of pool, and an ELEVATOR!!! FUN FOR EVERY AGE!!!
The grounds are immaculate and beautifully cared for.
The Spa Grande is AMAZING!!! The baths representing the different islands with their special island blends was wonderful.
Staff friendly and professional.
A bit pricey for the daily parking rate, but no other option if you have a car.
Would stay again next time in Maui!!!

Room Tip: Top Floors Front and Center Ocean View

This hotel is fantastic, especially if you have kids. Many different areas for pools, slides, play areas, etc. Even though there were tons of kids there, our room was quiet. We had a garden view room in building 4, but from our lanai, we had an amazing view of the ocean. The hotel is valet parking only. Restaurant food is great, beach is awesome!

A wonderful relaxing island experience with all the frills. Down side, Did not provide self park option. nickled and dimed with a $30 valet service per day. Should provide self park option, free valet, or simply build parking fee into room rate not as an add on. left bad taste of experience at the end. Not clearly specified. Dave's dive shop very helpful and great people. Except when it came to providing further Junior diving classifications/certification. Spent over $1000 in dive experience for son then they would not sign off on dive adventures even though diver log was presented on the first day for their review and to update. They get a little overwhelmed by numbers of divers and forget to further the young divers qualifications. Dive masters should respect the ocean life more. " it appears to be an attempt to gain higher tips by poking and handling marine life a bit much for comfort . "Observe not disturb" is what i teach

The grounds are very lush, stunning and very well kept. The beach is great and the chairs and umbrellas are complimentary.The staff is very friendly and polite. The guest rooms are dated, but would have been fab in their day. We at at bbbb, the service was great but the food was terrible, I do not recommend.
Very family friendly, with kiddie pools and slides for children.
Overall our stay was pleasant, but I most likely would not go back, as I enjoy more modern amenities, and less kids. (which is easy to find at the rates you will pay)

Amazing pools. Main reason to come here, plus the beach is perfect. Waves Not to rough, not too weak.
Off season so rates were lower but pools still very crowded, I would never want to stay during peak season.
Valet sucks- tbey scratched up our rental pretty bad

I really loved the beach at Wailea!! The hotel is beachfront but from your room you need to go through the hotel pools and gardens to get to the beach. I thought that was not comfortable or nice! The service was extremely corteous! That was really good! The Hawaiian Shows around Wailea were right there, at your fingertips. The rooms could use an update, though!

Room Tip: Get a room that is nearer to the beach
