Ho'Olei at Grand Wailea



9 Reviews

146 Ho'olei Circle, Wailea-Makena, United States

27.5km from Kahului Airport

46.9km from Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad

"I cannot recommend booking with Ho'olei enough. We had four adults (two married couples) and one infant and the experience was fantastic. First off, the Ho'olei team was extremely communicative weeks before our trip even started. We had texts and emails with the concierge regularly As a parent of an infant, the included high chair, crib, and baby proofing of the unit was extremely helpful. It was all set up when we arrived. Additionally, as we had a full kitchen and grill, they have a grocery service that will pick up groceries before you get there. We arrived at 2AM our time (8PM Hawaii time) and all of our groceries were put away in the fridge and on the counter ready for us to use. It was a very nice thing after 14+ hours of travel. Check in was very smooth with clear instructions of how to use the property. We had a Deluxe Ocean View which meant we were in the last row. The views of the ocean were incredible with multiple whale sightings per day. The only downfall of this is that the walk down to the pool or the hotel was a little longer. However, if you do want to go to the hotel, free valet was included in our stay which was a huge bonus. Additionally, when you don't want to drive, there is a daily shuttle service you just text to get picked up that runs until 8PM (however the valets take over after 8PM) Our concierge helped us book 99% of our activities. We also had a reservation as Mama's fish house, which you have to book months in advance. At the last minute we had another guest wanting to join us for dinner and the concierge was able to contact the restaurant and add the additional guest. This was a fantastic trip and if you have any questions I am more than happy to answer it!!"
"Just returned from 6 days here and can't wait to go back! We were traveling with 2 adult children, and really debated between the main hotel and the villas. SO glad we went with the villas. Everything felt huge, spacious, and was very clean. We had a deluxe ocean view and the view never got old. The kitchen was equipped with first class dishes, pots and pans, and so much more. We were more than impressed. Bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and spacious. Silly thing, but they even provided laundry detergent which was nice to not have to buy. Walked or drove to the main hotel and sat at the adult pool daily. Easy walk, or can valet the car too. Walked the path to neighboring hotels for some variety. Pool food, drinks and service was really good. Sparkle our favorite server and so sweet! Sat at the beach too, no charge for chairs. Had a great dinner at HumuHumu...pricey but delicious, the sunset was worth it. Had a late flight the last day, so were able to use showers at Hoolei pool area before we left. They were nice and clean too. And the staff was amazing! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back!"
"Amazing hotel, great, great, all kinds of convenience, two floors, three bedrooms, two double beds, a large restaurant, fully equipped, you can cook your own meals, and a laundry room downstairs To meet various needs of life, very good staying experience, much better than ordinary hotels, and Dalf Hotel is one, you can use Dalf's entertainment facilities, there is a parking garage, free parking, there is mall across, There is a supermarket to buy food, very good hotel, the family is very satisfied"


Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea



69 Reviews

3900 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, Kihei, United States

28.8km from Kahului Airport

48.1km from Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad

"The surrounding environment is not bad. The private beach is relatively quiet, and the room facilities are also acceptable. This is the service of the four seasons that does not reflect the quality of the brand."
"Four seasons resort Maui hotel is very nice five star hotel"
"Four Seasons hotel in Maui Good restaurant Good operator"


Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort - A Concept by Hyatt



63 Reviews

3550 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, United States

26.5km from Kahului Airport

45.8km from Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad

"The room design facilities are very similar to the domestic Samsung to four-star restaurant. The taste of the restaurant is also good. There is no entertainment. The standard white resort hotel is flipping around the swimming pool. From the morning to the evening, the pool will be used every once in a while. There is a service brother to send free ice cream. The standard check-in time for this hotel is 4:00 pm. Later, after learning about the local land price with the agent, I probably understand why the hotel is so expensive."
"This is an amazing resort, not only the resort but the restaurants, activities, and people make this place special. Sitting pool side it is easy to view whales surfacing in the distance. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. "
"Great feeling"

Hotel Wailea



8 Reviews

555 Kaukahi Street, Hawaii-Maui, United States

27.8km from Kahului Airport

47.1km from Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad

"The hotel is located on the hill, below is the golf course and the beach. Compared to the four seasons that live below the beach, I think the sunset is more beautiful at the Wailea Hotel. In addition, it is very convenient to go to the beach to have a hotel Tesla. Because it is an adult hotel, it is strongly recommended that couples without children come here. The overall garden of the hotel is very beautiful and quiet. The overall service of the hotel is also very thoughtful. The front desk is warm and the hotel can be called golf. Car transfer, live here, no regrets"

46.8km from Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad

"Very good hotel 🏨 very right choice, watching the sunset on the balcony, enjoying cocktails in the lobby bar, sunbathing by the sea, everything is perfect. Americans are on vacation ⛱️ a holy place, few Asians. Next to it is the famous shop mall, and the golf course is opposite. Although the room facilities are slightly older, it does not affect the overall nobility. The meals are more expensive overall, there is no 🀄️ meal, no opportunity to speak Chinese, and the service is good 👍 reflects full respect for the guests. It's worth the cost."
"Waldorf is a very good hotel for travelling with children. Compared with the four seasons next door, Anderson, Marriott has only a pool. Waldorf ’s children ’s slide playground is more suitable for parent-child fun, and the hotel ’s private beach is right on the coast Central location is better without reefs"
"The hotel is awesome, very suitable for family and children, staying for at least three days, picturesque"

AC Hotel by Marriott Maui Wailea

88 Wailea Ike Place, Wailea, United States

46.2km from Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad

"Let me start by saying that if you want the resort vibe and this hotel isn't substantially less than the Marriott Wailea...then you'll probably be happier at the other hotel. This hotel caters more to business travelers, those looking for a stopover before checking in to the main hotel, and those looking to stay away from crazy resorts. If you haven't been to Hawaii and you've been saving up for the big trip with all of the extras, you might be disappointed to find out that it's not on the ocean and is missing some of the amenities you might see further down the road. No one is planning your dinners or bringing you room service here. It's definitely not for everyone...but it's for me. :) Personally, I loved it. I loved that I could get a cabana without paying $250, I loved the laid back pool bar, and I loved that I didn't pay a resort fee on top of parking. No forgetting where I parked my car or fighting for pool chairs at 7am like I've experienced elsewhere.. It's super easy to walk down to the beach, explore resorts, get to the shops, etc. Everyone we chatted with at the hotel was amazing and there was plenty of room to spread out at the pool and the lobby. I'll definitely be back. "
"Its a beautiful hotel off the waterfront. Staff were very nice and the lounge/bar is exceptional. You cant miss the parking lot standing out in views and pictures from the balcony, but thats a minor annoyance. Super enjoyed the lounge after hours with an environment conducive to conversation. The rooms are appropriate for the price, but the location inferior to beachfront hotels similarly priced. We enjoyed our stay, but wouldnt return. The hotel is set up under contract with several airlines and provides free rooms to airline staff for a fixed corporate fee. This means it is set up for short term stays and longer term guests are a bit short changed. Example - complimentary water only for the first night and you are on you own thereafter. No make up mirrors. Spa was not functioning for at least a week and was not fixed when we departed. Advised we could use a spa belonging to other hotel a 1/4 mile away. Seriously? A mismanaged solution to a fairly pricey Marriot. Irrespective, its a very nice hotel if you are not planning on beach access and only in Maui for the short term. Balcony suites are only larger balconies and not suites."
"It was a pleasure to stay here! What a wonderful team... This is a nice and relaxed newer facility with a great location. The rooms were comfortable, the food yummy, and the pool freezing cold (Which i liked) Everything this trip was wonderful."


Residence Inn by Marriott Maui Wailea



60 Reviews

75 Wailea Ike Drive, Wailea, United States

26.7km from Kahului Airport

46.0km from Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad

"The hotel is very comfortable. The whole room is good. There is a large swimming pool and a heated pool. The rooms are large. Maybe Maui Island is more expensive as a whole. This is the right price. Seeing the organic group also stays in this hotel hahaha. The breakfast at the hotel is very generous, but the breakfast here is more diy than the high-end hotel. Many things need to be done by yourself, such as baking muffins and toasting, but it is quite interesting. The bitter thing about breakfast is that there are too many birds. As long as no one is at the table, there will be birds to eat food. I was mad twice after being eaten twice. The only disadvantage of the hotel is probably the location. It is far from the main attractions of Maui Island and the famous beaches. Especially when you are tired by car, you will feel that the location selection has failed. But overall it is a wonderful experience!"
"Spacious and comfortable, good service, there is shuttle to carry guests to the beach, breakfast is free, no resort fees, parking 25 knives a day."
"The hotel was too expensive. It cost more than 14,000 in 3 days, and parking cost 25 dollars a day. The rooms are very nice suites, and it is quite far from the beach. To drive to Wailea beach, there is no parking space, and the beach is not comparable to Sanya."
