Visited Hawaii for 4th time and had MOST ENJOYABLE vacation at this Resort. Great, dsicounted group rates for on-site meeting ~$300/night. Beautiful grounds, beach, pools, and common areas. Excellent rooms and Fitness Center. Restaurant, housekeeping, and Bar service was disappointing but beautiful setting and amenities more than compensated. Would gladly return.

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Wailea recently and couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience. We splurged and enjoyed watching the sunset from our ocean view room in the Napua Tower which comes with some fabulous amenities (great complimentary breakfast, cocktails and pu pus and use of a couple of Apple computers with great big monitors.) Spectacular spa experience (anti-aging facial and a deep tissue massage). We like kids but were delighted that there was a separate pool for adults when we wanted some quiet relaxation. Food, service and atmosphere at Humuhumu for dinner were outstanding. No complaints! Loved IT! GO!!!

ARRIVAL:

I cannot say enough good things about this resort. From the minute we arrived we were greeted with smiles and immediately had our bags taken out of our hands and whisked away to our room. Check in was quick and extremely easy, they already had everything prepared before our arrival.

ROOM:

We stayed in a Napua Club Room and if you are willing to pay the extra cost , it is definitely worth it! The room service was exceptional, and the turn down service even better. The Napua Level included a full breakfast buffet every morning, water/ice tea and cookies all day, and an AMAZING cocktail hour starting at 5:30. The Mai Tai's were incredible, and the bar tender (I wish I could remember her name) was very nice and called all of us by our first and last names.

The room was awesome, and the beds even more. The view equally as great, and the bathroom too. Shower was huge, and the jacuzzi tub was as well. The whole room had a very luxurious classy vibe to it.

FOOD:

Expensive.... but very very good. I'm not going to complain about the prices at this hotel, because at the end of the day you get what you pay for. This hotel is known for being luxurious and high class, so obviously it will be highly priced. Although, once again the food was impeccable. We ate at every restaurant and our personal favorite was the "Bistro Molokini". It was the cafe next to the adult pool, and although casual the food was still wonderful, with a variety of options.

POOLS:

PERFECT. The adult pool was always quiet, and had friendly pool service. You can reserve a cabana near the pool for a fee, but it was a nice bonus. The hot tubs were set at a perfect temperature as well.

The main pool had SO many awesome activities and kept the kids busy all day. Between the water slides, lazy river, and rope swing i'd say it was one of the best pools i've ever seen. You can also schedule scuba diving lessons, they have a private pool to learn in.

BEACH:

Very nice, the water was very calm and nice to swim in. If I had one complaint i'd say that it was a bit to crowded. It isn't a very big beach, and when you have 3 hotels that are using that beach it can get crowded quickly. Make sure you get up and grab a nice spot early in the morning. (Same goes for the pools)

LOCATION:

Excellent. The Wailea shops were a short walk away, and if you feel like eating away from the resort there are some casual restaurants within walking distance as well. The nightlife is a short cab ride away, and not as stuffy as the town of Wailea.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE:

I recommend this hotel and vacation spot to almost anyone. It's great for families, couples, young people, just about everyone! If you are going to be staying at this resort, and I can assure you that you will have an amazing time!

Annual guests for 15 years at the Grand Wailea. Recent visit (3-09) under the new Elite membership program was excellent. This new program provides many benefits from reduced room rates to food and beverage discounts. This coupled with the Grand Wailea's recent $50 Million upgrading of the property, has brought the resort to a whole new level and we think the finest in Maui. I highly recommend the new Elite membership program. Even after 15 years of visits we always re-experience the finest in accommodations and service at the Grand Wailea.

I have been fortunate to travel around the world, spending alot of time in Hawaii, the US Carribean, the British Virgin Islands, & the West Indies. I can honestly say that this resort was the most beautiful, with an impecable attention to detail and service.

I typically like to try new resorts for each "adventure" I plan, but this place is so special that I hope to return on a regular basis!

This resort is NOT for everyone. It is a mega resort. Incredible pools, beautiful grounds, fabulous location and loaded with tourists. If you want to go play with the kids in one of the best pools anywhere, don't miss this resort. If you want romance and luxury, go to the Four Seasons or Kea Lani next door. We had a an oceanview room which was nicely appointed. Very large bathroom with separate tub/shower. Fully stocked mini bar that is sealed(nice if you have little ones!) Refrigerators are available for an extra fee. Matter of fact everything comes with an extra fee but if you choose to stay at this type of resort, expect it. The restaurants are overpriced and mediocre but the ambience is hard to beat! The spa is incredible(expensive) but lives up to the expectation. Staff was courteous, rooms were clean, beach is nice but not exceptional. Expect to walk 10 minutes to get to the beach, pool, restaurants, etc. Like I said mega resort. Enjoy the resort for all it has to offer but just be prepared to pay!
