Quiet hotel, close to the beach but really run dow

Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: I like how close this hotel was to the beach and the beach itself is beautiful.
Cons: The grounds (especially the pool area) need to be upgraded and there should be a bar that is open for the guests aside from the run down pool bar.
Location: It's the beautiful area but is far away from everything. They offer a free shuttle which is great but is not close to anything...except the beach!
The room themselves were comfortable and I like that it's so close to the beach but the hotel in general is really run down. The pool and pool area is minimal and the chairs/canopies are were old. There isn't a bar except for a few chairs in the restaurant that don't open until 5:30. If you're looking for something really quiet then this might be a good hotel for you but overall thought it was simple, run down and quite frankly, boring.

Great hotel

Posted Oct 17, 2014
Pros: Close to the beach!
Location: Great place to snorkel, hang out at the beach, clear waters!
The Makena Beach Resort was a great hotel! Right next to the beach and had lots of activities available! The staff were friendly and were very accommodating.

Loved My Vacation!!

Posted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: The quiet secluded beach, the beautiful gardens and the yummy breakfast.
Cons: the room service was a little slow but the food was good.
Location: location is secluded but close enough to hope in the car to sight see.
We spent our 30th Anniversary here and it was perfect. We enjoyed the close walk to the beach through beautiful gardens. Some of the days we spent laying by the pool with just enough attention from the pool staff offering drinks and lunch poolside. Our room was very comfortable, the coffee maker with Starbucks coffee was nice to have before going downstairs to the best breakfast buffet ever! Everyday the chefs made a surprise dish, quiche, eggs Florentine or a specially made omelet. I really enjoyed the fresh fruit too. We took advantage of the free bike rentals and putting greens. They made us feel like family.

Pros: The hotel is quiet. There is a catamaran sailboat taking you snorkeling that lands on the beach right in front of the hotel.
Cons: On arrival, the hotel staff pretty much give you no option but to do valet parking. I wish I could park next to the lobby myself when checking in.
There is a beach right in front of the hotel, but bear in mind that it is small and you will be only feet away from other people lying on reclining chairs. When you book a room with a partial ocean view, keep in mind that it is subject to interpretation. We had to argue with reception until on our second day we were given a room with a better view of the ocean. We noticed that at this hotel's location it is more likely to start raining in the afternoon than in other parts of the island.
