“Best Location Every!”
Reviewed February 18, 2007

I have stayed at Destination Hawaii's Grand Champions twice now... this trip I spent 4 weeks.

I was in a one bedroom condo that was amazing! Its large size and gourmet kitchen was a welcome considering most properties nearby are more 'hotel' styled and small. A extra large living-sitting area seperated the dining area as well as a large balcony from which I could watch the morning golfers and the waves coming in from the ocean.

I used both pools and enjoyed the fact that one is reserved for adults so its quiet! Parking was provided and even allowed guests to visit and park in selected locations. Honestly for the price and location it can not be beat! I travel YEAR-ROUND and its on my top 10 list for places to stay and play.

Unlike many of the 'Condo Resorts' that rent on the Island they were always friendly, provided daily house cleaning and even outfitted my condo with a nice welcome basket and checked on my comfort throughout my stay!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

My wife and I were very disappointed in our stay at the "Grand Champion" that is managed by "Destination Resorts". The room we stayed in (room 13) was filthy & disgusting. I have lived in fraternity houses that were in better shape! Mice were running around the place constantly. The patio was dominated by ants & spiders. The beds are rock hard and make noise with any movement. There is a sign when entering the room that reads: "Please take off your shoes, Mahalo". Folks, the last thing you want to do is remove your shoes and walk around barefoot in that place. Also, be careful which pillow you decide to use while resting on the sofa, most of them are grungy. When I complained about the place to "Destination Resorts", the response I got was "Sorry sir, We don't own the properties, we just manage them. I will let the owner know" Nice! Maybe some rooms are better than others, who knows. Why gamble with your comfort & vacation, especially with a place that has a no refund, no recourse policy. Avoid this disaster, book elsewhere!!
P.S. The people who wrote rosy reviews on this place either don't know any better or had way too many Mai Tai's.

Would NOT recommend this property. The unit we stayed in, #53, was shabby--old furniture, outdated appliances. Housekeeping was spotty; they came every day but simply changed the towels (did not even wipe down counter tops) and once every four days they vaccumed the carpets. The front desk is EXTREMELY unhelpful; we had a gecko (!) in our bedroom and they refused to answer the phone when we called a second time to see why they were not there to remove it.

We also wanted to print out our boarding passes before we left for the airport and they refused, asking us to go to an internet cafe instead. Also, they charge for everthing--cribs in rooms (which is included in all hotels for free--we've never been charged). Overall, considering the amount of money we paid, we expected and should have received much better customer service, and much better facilities.

PS: The Grand Champions condos are (at least ours was) shabby; but the customer service came to us via Destination Resorts--we booked through them and they were the ones manning (or in this case, being negligent at) the front desk.

We recently stayed in this complex Aug-10 thru Aug-17, 2006 in unit #35 (2bd / 2bth), and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were so at home here we actually looked into purchasing a unit. A housemaid came every morning to make the bed and do the dishes. The complex had two pools and 4 grills to bbq on. All the residents were very friendly. The condos are located fairly close to one of the main highways and plenty of shopping and golf in every direction. The local beaches are a little more than 5-10 min. away by car, and they are some of the most gorgeous beaches on the entire island. There is some construction going on right next door, but it didn't bother us (They typically don't start working until 8 a.m.). When we plan to do this again, we will definitely stay at Grand Champion Villas.

We just returned from our honeymoon! :) So glad we stayed at a Grand Champions villa instead of a hotel. It was relaxing and hassle-free -- not like the dorm feeling of so many hotels (even the best). Something about having a lot of space that just helps you relax. Everything was clean and in good condition. With 2 bathrooms both my husband and I could get ready at the same time. Having our parking space just outside of the door made loading/unloading a snap -- not just to and from the airport, but for trips to the beach for shopping too! We didn't do any cooking but having a full-sized fridge and utensils made it easy to have wine, ice cream, and snacks anytime we wanted! :) And having a living room and lanai really helped us feel more "at home" while away from home. Would stay there again!

This was a great condo to stay in. Large and close to everything. We stayed in Maui for 5 days and mostly stayed in Wailea with just a side trip to Hana (beware of the windy roads, I got car sick and I haven't felt that way since I was 8 years old!) and Haleakala. Both are most dos, but everything else was in Wailea. Even all the restaurants that were recommended by friends and travel guides. There's a Cheeseburger in Paradise right in the shopping center down the street! We had a wonderful time. Our condo was across the street from the pool, but there were only 2 pools, so I don't know how far of a walk it would be for everyone else to either one of them. The only negative is that it's a far walk to the beach. We had to drive to the beach, but the parking there fills up quickly. Just a warning.

Kihei is right next door and I know there are a lot of condos there as well, and those were along the beach and cheaper. But Kihei isn't as nice as Wailea.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay there immensely. It's so nice to be able to do your laundry while on vacation. I got by with just one carry on bag for a 2 week vacation! (we were in Honolulu the rest of the time).

Room: Seems the rooms in all the condos vary greatly. Pros: very spatious and had all the comforts of a home including kitchen utensils, internet access, TV, DVD player, boogie board and snorkeling equipment, full kitchen, washer dryer. Would be good for families. Cons: obviously, it's a condo so you don't have easy access to concierge. It was a little confusing to get key for the room. No AC in the livingroom in our unit so be sure to ask for a room with AC in the livingroom and bedrooms.

Location: It is in a nice location in Wailea and it is very quiet. It's a little ways from stores so you gotta drive to get food and everything else in Kihei. A little isolated and far from Lahaiana where all the fun seems to be at. Not beach front, but close enough. It's nice being able to pull up directly to your condo instead of having to park and go through the lobby and wait for elevator as you would in a hotel.

Recommend getting the book Maui Revealed.
