“Better than I anticipated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

We stayed at the Grand Wailea 8 years ago and really liked it. All of the negative reviews made me scared that I would hate it this time. We had a great time, especially our 9 year old son. We never had a problem finding a seat at the pool and the birds were actually less annoying than they were on Oahu or on the other side of Maui. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The concierge, Mi, was exceptional. Now for the weak link: The food leaves a lot to be desired so we would walk over to the Four Seasons next door for lunch. We ate at Humuhumu one night and it was very good but the menu was extremely limited and no specials. However, the sunset at that restaurant makes it worth eating there just one night.

The Grand Wailea is on Wailea Beach. You don't have to walk to the beach like all of the other hotels in Wailea. Perfect location and amazing hotel.

Room Tip: This place is amazing! Ask for an upgrade, we got one free.

I have stayed in my share of resort hotels. This is the finest resort I have ever stayed in. No need to pay more for an ocean view, as the buildings are surrounded by gardens and pools so every view is spectacular. This is a big hotel, with so many amenities. The downside is you do find yourself walking a lot to get from the pool to the spa, to your room, etc..I wish I could afford to come here every year.

Absolutely love their pool area, water slides, water elevator and a river that floats you to their huge pool. Separate pool for adults. There is a daily fee for using which I think is outrageous considering their extremely high room rates. And breakfast was extremely expensive and not worth the money

We spent a first night in Maui here, before we could check into our Time Share in Ka'anapali Beach, in Lahaina. The grounds are expansive, clean, majestic, flat out breathtaking. The continulously connected pools are a sight to see. The rooms were ok, but the property was amazing. After our night's stay here, it was hard to see anything else as acceptable, ... but we managed. Ka'Anapali Beach Club is our home away from home. But for an unforgettable getaway, check out Grand Wailea!! You will never regret the experience!!!

Room Tip: Any room facing the ocean will allow fabulous views. Get down to the beach for a nice walk on the p...

We love coming her to relax and enjoy the beautiful pools. The rooms are very nice and I think they all have views of the ocean. The property is gorgeous and has a real open air feeling. We enjoyed the relaxing Spa and beautiful surrounding. I would say the food is lacking though as the restaurants need to be updated. The food just isn't up to the quality of this hotel and doesn't match the level expected. I would stay here again but the food definitely needs to be upgraded.
