"Chic hotel for a different kind of Maui experience"
I primarily selected this hotel for proximity to a good beach, great pool amenities, and because it looked a little further away from the"tourist/family" hotels that are very popular. This was one of the nicest hotels I've been to in my life. My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 4th anniversary and this was our first time in Hawaii, and with limited vacations this year, I wanted to "do it right" and make memories. With all of the amazing things you can do on the island, it was hard to leave!
NOT CHEAP, but if you are looking to spoil yourself... WOW! Worth every penny in my opinion to not be part of the "disneyland masses" so to speak.
I wish I was there right now!

Overall excellent experience. Friendly staff. Pool service great. Shopping within hotel and directly next to hotel. Fine restaurants on site and close by. Concierge very helpful with planning activities. Would stay here again.
"Right on excellent snorkel beach, views, garden!"
Aloha spirit! Beach walk and snorkel, so easy, every morning, right on site, just walk down to the beach! Beautiful gardens and views! Friendly and helpful staff! Fantastic adult pool, perfect temperature, relaxing drinks! Hawaii sunsets in all their glory, with lamplighter tradition, to follow...awesome! Near golf, shopping, and restaurants! Didn't want to leave! Perfect!
I would highly recommend, the Wailea Beach Villas.
It was larger and more luxurious than our home back in NZ.
It is sometimes hard to accommodate a family of 5 but the Apartment we had was very spacious and the re was a bedroom for each of our 3 kids.
Staff are so friendly and helpful especially the beach staff, who will set you up in comfort in your own corner of the beach.
The small gourmet supermarket and the massive barbecue in the room make for a much more economical stay especially with the the cost of feeding 3 teenagers in a restaurant every night.
There was even a wine fridge!!
We had a premium ocean view room, with sliding doors that opened to a patio overlooking the ocean and infinity pool. We were able to enjoy the sun rising and setting, as well visit with the tame birds that gathered on the grass to eat crumbs. The Marriott was the first hotel built in Wailea and is quite close to the water. From the infinity pool, giant sea turtles were easily viewed coming to the surface for air just beyond the rocky shore, plus there were plenty of spots to sit in the shade and be cooled by the tradewinds. The outdoor reception area and lobby is impressive, with comfortable seating areas and water features. There are several golf courses, beaches, and great shopping right in Wailea. Activities such as snorkeling, boat trips, day trips to Hana, fine dining, and much more are all available at quite reasonable prices (shop around, prices and quality do vary by vendor).
We were staying at the Polo Club to attend a party at the Kea Lane next door. Location is fantastic and our room and view were spectacular. Roominess of the condo was better than the villas at the Kea Lane!
My honey and I stayed @ Makena Surf and condo #F209 was absolutely the best condo by far considering the perfect location to the ocean. The kitchen was remodeled which was nice, and fully equipped with everything you need for a fully functioning stay for meals, etc. however, the condo really needed updating for floors/carpets/bathrooms. Overall, our stay was quite relaxing and enjoyable and we would recommend this 2 bs condo to any visitors visiting the south coast, Wailea area which is the very best on the island. Mahalo!
Golf, golf, and more golf: the Wailea Golf Club’s three courses are a main attraction. Particularly, its Emerald Course is renowned for being one of the most friendly for women. Because the club is seaside, golfers can squeeze in seasonal whale watching during tee time. Shoppers can spend a few greenbacks at The Shops at Wailea, an upscale galleria with Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Tiffany & Co.
