    The Grand Wailea is perfect- full stop. It's almost ridiculously relaxing and the staff will cater to your every whim, going so far as to text you daily asking how things are. I want to go back!

    Friendly staff and nice and clean rooms! Love the fact that there is a night club inside the resort (Sunami). Breakfast in the morning with a view in the ocean in the "Humuhumunukunukuapua" is a must

    This tip is all the info you need for a long trip! Do the valet it's a lot of $ but u get free h2o every day. Also get to the pool early like 7 am and reserve your seat with the towels they give you

    Scenery is amazing at the resort! Food and drink a little on the pricy side. We went to the grocery store and saved a bunch of money that way! Can't wait to go back next year!

    Order poolside drinks in the larger souvenir cups (Tiki God or pineapple). It costs a few bucks more but you get a double for the price of a regular drink with every refill in it during your stay.

    Phenomenal views. Excellent, friendly, helpful staff. Great shopping. Tons of food choices. Rooms are spectacular. Get an ocean view and upgrade to a suite for an even better experience.

    Continued, go down all the slides there not as scary as it seems and rent a boogie board $20 for 24 hrs!!. If you're looking for a good restaurant Monkeypod kitchen is the way to go expensive but good

    Make sure to take a stroll at the sidewalk adjacent to the beach. You can easily go to the Four Seasons restaurants and also have access to the luau at the Marriott

    Grand Wailea is one of (if not THE) best place to stay on Maui. Service is exemplary, grounds are gorgeous, and is far beyond Island time. What a place to rejuvenate.

    Really good hotel for relaxing with easy access to the beach and pools, the cabanas are wildly overpriced though at $125!

    Make sure to try all the pools. Adults, swim up to the bar in the pool & have a drink. The spa is incredibly relaxing. All the whirlpools are amazing in the spa.

    The food here (except Amasia) is very low grade. Do yourself a favor and walk over to the Four Seasons or the Fairmont when you get hungry. Or better yet, leave the hotels all together.

    Evil vacationers leave towels at the pool lounge chairs at 8am and leave, leaving no chairs for anyone else. After 30 minutes you can claim those lounge chairs

    Humuhumu for expensive dinner, or save some money and head down to Kihei to Sansei for great sushi at a great price.
