The staff and guests just seemed so much more pleasant and approachable than other resorts we visited in the area. The location, beach and quiet were ideal for us. We visited the Four Seasons, Andaz and Grand Wailea and just felt more "at home" at the Makena. Less pretentious, less "busy", more relaxing, quieter. -
Beautiful beach in front of ... what people say » the hotel (very good for swimming and
snorkeling). Friendly staff. Good size rooms, very comfortable. Shuttle
service was quite convenient to move around Makena and Wailea. Free
bikes (for 3 hrs). Friendly consierge service which helped coordinating
the tours or activities.
