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.

Secluded resort right off beach

Posted Sep 12, 2014
This was our first time in Maui and I wasn't disappointed! The hotel was nice close to shopping malls. Mahena resort is about 40 min from Lahaina and about 3hrs from Hana, both a must see. You definitely need to get a rental to sight-see beautiful Maui!

Love this hotel! The staff is so accommodating and genuine. They make sure your every wish is taken care of. Love Ron, at the front desk, amazing! Love Evelyn at the Starbucks, so sweet. Love keoni at the beach, so helpful and friendly. Such a great experience. Not to pushy or over the top, lots to do at your finger tips. Just love this place! On the beach, great service....
