Another Wonderful Stay at Makena Beach Resort

Posted Jul 2, 2015
My husband and I truly love this resort. Every time we visit Maui, we stay at Makena. The staff was very attentive to our needs. The one delightful aspect we missed were the ventilated doors, which created a steady oceanic aromatic breeze through the room when you opened the patio doors. We were looking forward to this attribute, but we still enjoyed ourselves. We plan to return! The seclusion, view, hotel decor (interior and exterior), food, the live entertainment during dinner were all spectacular!

Very good Maui resort

Posted Jun 24, 2015
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Better pastries at the Starbucks...slim pickings.
Location: The resort is a tad remote, but is very close to Big Beach and Kihei /Wialea.
The pros: Free self and valet parking. No resort fee. Free water and good coffee in your room daily. It has a beach and a pool with snorkeling right off the beach. Class place at a reasonable price. Did I mention NO RESORT FEE (a way most Hawaiian properties misrepresent their rates)? Great staff that is helpful and friendly. All price levels of food and drink. Sea turtles on the beach The cons: The resort is a little remote, meaning a little far out there on a road that is 20 and 30 MPH speed limits. It seems to be in a rainy spot on the island. It was raining there every afternoon when just up the road was sunny. The pool is a little small.

Nice hotel with beach access.

Posted Jun 21, 2015
This hotel is at the end of a row of hotels. It has access to the beach. The hotel staff was very friendly and the rooms are spacious with a nice balcony. A car rental is necessary due to distance from the airport and the hotel location. The hotel concierge was very helpful in booking our activities.

Best Vacation Ever

Posted Jun 13, 2015
I won't get into details about how incredible Maui is. I will just say, go...go there now. I will say you could enjoy a trip to Maui staying basically anywhere but we were fortunate to stay in the most comfortable and well run hotels we have ever been in. The service was 5 star, the food was 5 star, the drinks were 5 star and the overall quality of the facilities and rooms were 5 star. The friendly staff are always helpful and genuine in trying to make your stay as memorable as possible. If you need help they are right there offering support. All the food from the pizza and burgers at the bar to the incredible breakfast buffet made every meal a good one. We also never felt nickle and dimed. No resort fee..free valet parking..4-6 dollars for beers..fancy drink specials each day at the pool bar for 7 dollars..free bikes...free mini putt and other games..free daily activities like tours..free wifi..free water and towels to take out of the hotel and a private beach! Everything was amazing but more importantly time seemed to slow down while we were there. It was truly paradise and we plan on going back as soon as possible. Aloha Makena and thanks for the trip of our life's. Our honeymoon wouldn't have been the same anywhere else.

Well kept hotel but needs to be updated. Superior customer service. Breakfast is so-so for the price.
