"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
“Makena Surf exceeds expectations”
We had been to Wailea once before and stayed at the Grand Wailea, which is of course fabulous but expensive. This time we brought the kids and decided to go the condo route. After much research we settled on Makena Surf because it was right on the beach, so the kids didn't have to cross a road to go boarding. It was fantastic.
The condo we rented was second floor bldg F, and looked right out over the rocky point. The grounds at Makena Surf are impecably cared for, and the blooming flowers everywhere really made it feel like the tropical paradise that it is. We're from SoCal, so we are used to crowded beaches on holidays, weekends, or just about anytime the weather gets above 80. At Makena Surf on Memorial Day weekend, we practically had the beach to ourselves, with maybe a dozen families on the Sunday before Mem Day. The beach is pristine, and the kids did snorkeling just offshore at the rocky point. And when the waves got too aggressive for my 9 year old we went to the pool which was cleaned every day (with water samples taken also). To do it all over again (and we will), I won't ever waste my time going to another crowded "resort" hotel and pay all the fees, parking, and dining expenses again. Makena Surf has it all.
