This resort has gone so far downhill ever since new management took it over several years ago. The Front Desk staff were bored and fat out just didn't give a sh--. Their adult pool, oh forget about it! Screaming kids ahoy, and all seemed to have been dumped there by their parents, never to return again. Their one saving grace is their spa, which is the most spectacular in Maui. I know, I've been to each and every single one of them! Oh, I miss their limu bath already! Psyche! I can order it online, bwahahaha!!!!!!
This is one of the most beautiful hotels in Maui. I've been to Maui many times and The Wailea has got to be the best one...The pool is great for families, but most of all the Luau is one of the best! Good food, unless you hate meat, pork, and onions. Otherwise it was a really nice place...The sunset is beautiful and the grounds are spectacular! This was a 10 out of 10 hotel!
My family of 4 stayed at Grand Wailea for 10 days in early Feb 2007. Our kids are 3 1/2 yrs old and 7 wks old (not a typo!) Anyway, the hotel is amazing. The lobby is breathtaking with its open air design, fantastic artwork and timeless design. The grounds are gorgeous and the bronze statues blend in the natural setting with ease. The pools include a swim up bar, baby pool w/ a sand bottom, sauna 2 hot tubs, slides, volleyball play area and so much more. No complaints here except beach chairs in the shade by the baby pool go quickly. The rooms are HUGE for a hotel....the cheapest rooms are 640 sf. There is not a bad room in the resort. All of the restaurants are nice but expect typical HIGH resort prices. I certainly suggest packing in groceries or travelling off the resort for food. The only negative comment I would make is their maintenance schedule is lacking. If they continue to let things go at this rate, the resort (not incl the lobby) will need a major overhaul in a few years. The rooms show signs of the high humidity (peeling wallpaper, mildew, rust, and a slight musty smell) and the pool areas have many missing or chipped tiles.) This certainly does not have an impact on your stay, but at the room prices, they should step up their maintainence schedules.
We stayed in Maui with friends, however I did eat here and spent a whole day at the spa to pamper myself. I always do this while on vacation during the time my husband is golfing. This was by far the most luxurious spa I have been to. I will be sure to return when we visit again!
I am 16 years old and i have been traveling around the US for the last couple of years with my dads company on vacations, i have been to place like Oahu, HI, The Big Island, HI, Florida, and New York. Every where we have gone we have stayed in very nice 5 star hotels. But when we went to the Grand Wailea it was the best place ever! I will never forget it there! It was beautiful! It is BY FAR the best place ever to go I would HIGHLY recomend it!
