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!

Amazing staff, so accommodating and genuine

Posted Sep 8, 2014
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.... What more would you want

Beautiful, family friendly hotel, on the beach

Posted Aug 29, 2014
Pros: Bright room, huge balcony, gorgeous views. On the beach!!
Location: On the beach. Snorkel, boogie board, SUP right there! They have free bikes you can borrow. Lots of other beaches and shopping nearby.
First of all, the hotel is gorgeous. Comfortable, bright, clean, flowers and waterfalls everywhere. My kids (both 11) were given $20 credits per day to spend at the hotel for lunch, boogie board and snorkel rentals, smoothies and shave ice. They were thrilled! The hotel is on the beach. It's a two minute walk out of your hotel door. A very nice, quiet, small beach where there are waves to ride and play in, and reefs full of fish to explore on the sides. It is at the end of the fancy Wailea resort area, but not too far from anything. Nearby is Turtle Town and Makena Beach. The food at the resort is fabulous. We thought the pizza there was better than the pizza at Lahaina Pizza Co, which was voted best on the island (they are very different styles though!) and everything we ate was wonderful. We took SUP lessons in Kihei (not at the resort, but we could have done that if we wanted to,) and our instructor said that many locals go to the hotel for their buffets. Wonderful food! We used the hotel as a base to explore all of Maui and everything (except the road to Hana, of course) was within an hour or two. The staff are so kind and considerate. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were! They are helpful and full of useful information about all aspects of the island. We would definitely stay at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort again (but for ten days instead of a week!)

Beautiful Setting

Posted Aug 29, 2014
Pros: Landscaping, beach, views from the rooms, friendliness of staff.
Cons: New mattresses and carpeting in the rooms and an overall refurbishing of decor.
Location: Love the location at the southwest end of the island and away from the heavy tourist zones. The Wailea Shops are first rate.
Love the location, all the way at the end of the tourist zone of southwest Maui and away from the hoards of tourists, and the beach is one of the nicest on the island. But the hotel, the rooms, the decor are all showing their age, and the choices for dining and entertainment are limited, to say the least. The worst part for me was the mattress in my room, which was like sleeping on a marshmallow, soft and mushy, with very little support, and for a person who has had multiple back surgeries (six, to be exact), it was difficult and close to impossible to get any sleep. The grounds around the hotel are well kept, well designed and landscaped, and absolutely lush and gorgeous in tropical splendor, color, and fragrance. And the staff on every front were friendly, courteous, helpful, and always went out of their way to be accommodating. Ron and Gail are particularly memorable in the friendliness and professionalism..

Wonderful Stay!

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Pros: Location!
Cons: Not much!
What a great stay. We couldn't have asked for more. There were so many positive points for this resort: 1) Friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful customer service. 2) Location. Close enough to the action of Wailea, but positioned on a secluded beach far away from the other large resorts. Easy to get to Big Beach, right down the road. 3) Great value. The price was considerably less than other resorts in the area and our package included a free breakfast buffet. No resort fees. No valet parking charges. 4) Lovely facilities. Beautiful pool. Well appointed, large, rooms. Most rooms with at least a partial ocean view. On site restaurant had great food. We'll definitely be back! Stayed August 2014

It was a great place and the only issue was one day the sink started to leak and by the time we return to our room a few hours later, it was fixed.
