Gorgeous view, wonderful stay
Posted Nov 29, 2015
I researched a lot before booking this trip and I went off of people's experiences on Travelocity. I read and read and read for weeks before we booked this. I am 100% satisfied!
Our view was spectacular, ocean view, we paid extra for the top notch view, and it was worth it. The bed was extremely comfortable and room was spacious and so quiet. The balcony was private, no one could see you and you had no people walking by and no noise but the ocean. We went to a few other resorts on Mauiu just to check them out and yes, places like The Grand Wailia were gorgeous and incredible but we were so glad we chose Makena. Although they are so beautiful to look at the rooms were not private, you had a lot of people, your view was not just of the ocean. I think we would not have enjoyed staying there nearly as much, and I am sure the rooms there were quite a bit more.
It was a very expensive trip but we got exactly what we wanted, a gorgeous view and private balcony. The staff were all excellent, our meals delicious, I got a book on Mauiu and we followed his advice on restaurants and each one was worth it. There are plenty of choices nearby to eat at.
Definitely a wonderful, memorable trip. I am so glad for all of the reviews on Travelocity that made choosing a hotel that much easier. I would recommend the Makena hotel. We loved it!!!!
