TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 days ago

ROOM - My room was a standard room. While the view of the pool and ocean was outstanding, the room needed some new paint and updating. Unfortunately, it was really nothing special. HOTEL GROUNDS - The hotel grounds were absolutely amazing and the best of any hotel I have been to in the U.S. Also, this hotel is massive... the largest hotel I have stayed in in the States. But really, I cannot say enough nice things about the hotel grounds. POOL - The pools and beach were great. However, they need to improve their lawn chair system. Quite often, every lawn chair spoken for... but not really. People leave towels on their chairs rather than put them in a bin and the staff won’t let you take them off for at least an hour. I went to the beach on multiple occasions due to a shortage of chairs and even those were all taken on more than one occasion. STAFF - The staff could be friendlier... especially the valet service. They were totally unfriendly. At first, I thought maybe it was just one guy, but numerous were rather rude all week long. Also, I never had one server or waitress come buy to sell me food or drinks while at the pool or beach. LOCATION - The location is great. It’s in the heart of Wailea and a short Uber ride from Kihei. Also, it’s close to a number of good restaurants. However, be prepared to pay a premium for many of them, especially the ones inside of the hotels nearby.

We've been struggling to put to words the Grand Wailea - a resort with fantastic potential, but in need of some serious TLC. The resort has the feel of a 1980's cruise ship, washed ashore and making the most of the situation. Everything from the densely stacked pool chairs (granted we were there on a sellout weekend) jam-packed restaurants, and gallery row of cruise-style shopping gave the impression of an operator squeezing every dime out of a tired, dated property. Our room was in the "exclusive club" of Napua Tower - blocked from the rest of the world by key-operated steel gates (think the scene from Titanic, but knowing Rose would have had to wear a paper wristband to get her towels). Apparently those who didn't pay the premium try to get in on the free Napua Tower happy hour, so steel gates (as they often are) were the best solution. Those free drinks are about the only perk of the up-charged room - so which side of that gate is really living it up? The rooms in Napua tower (as I'm assuming everywhere) are spacious, but not especially nice. There is brass, yes, and pink marble and a big TV - like the home of a Miami Vice villain, but the brass and marble, like the carpet, is faded and the room is musty to the point where the magazine pages on the scratched up tables have curled and the traction grips on the soaking tub carry the dirt of untold guests before you. Other small expectations of a well thought out hotel are overlooked: - Doors don't seal well, so noise carries up the tower at all hours - Room Service call holds of 5 minutes were common - Towels were consistently faded and worn - Wifi was inconsistent (for example, not on balconies) - Bathroom doors warped and not able to close - A paper slip process to get a beach chair - seriously We pride ourselves on seeing the best of a place, and Maui itself has a lot to offer. Unfortunately this stay was a last minute necessity and the last minute price commanded by the resort was not commensurate with the experience provided. The staff, while gracious and friendly seemed without authority to truly improve the quality of the stay.

Why I picked this resort: Having both SPG Platinum and Hilton Diamond status, I made the decision when visiting Maui to stay at the Grand Wailea based on the fame of this property and the Wailea beach area. The property did not disappoint! Room Selection: Stay in the Napua tower! I spent one night of my stay in a regular chapel view room, but paid to upgrade to the Napua Tower for the final 3 nights of my stay and did not regret it! Rooms are a bit dated at this property style wise, but you can tell they are clean and well maintained. Napua room was located on the top floor of the tower with a breathtaking view down the beach and mountains. Balcony was private and large with comfortable furniture. Everything from the exclusive key access entrance and private concierge/check in desk, to the nightly top shelf bar and very friendly/observant staff is first class! The breakfast in the mornings in much more than continental with eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc. Worth every penny! Service: As mentioned above, the Napua tower staff was excellent and first class all the way around. Other service around the resort was good as well. Spent most of my time at the adult pool (Hibiscus) and received great poolside drink/food service there. Seemed they had ample amount of staff around the property to serve guest needs during the busy new years’ time. Diamond Perks: Since the Waldorf Astoria is a luxury brand, status perks are very limited. No free breakfast offered and only received two free drinks at lobby bar as well as a $40 voucher to one of the on-site restaurants. Room upgrades do not come easy at this property either. After talking to the manager, I was able to upgrade from the Garden “Garage” view room to a room overlooking the chapel with double beds (wife and I were on Anniversary trip). After one night in this room, we spent the remainder of our stay in the Napua Tower with an amazing ocean/mountain view. I did have to pay a $250/nt. upgrade fee for the tower which was told this was a discounted price due to my Diamond status. Transportation: Maui is very spread out and trip from airport took about 30 minutes. I would suggest renting a car and paying the $30/nt. parking at the resort. This will give you transportation to/from airport, as well as a means to explore the island without being sucked into the overpriced tourist trap tours! Excursions: Island activities are very spread out, so plan to spend a lot of time driving to different places on the island (3 hour plus drive from Grand Wailea to Hanna). I suggest driving the island in your own rental car at your own leisure with suggestions from the concierge team who is very helpful. I do suggest taking the following excursion which can be booked through the hotel concierge: - Molokini Snorkeling – Crater Island boat tour that offers the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii. Tour also allows you to get out on the beautiful waters of Maui and enjoy the breathtaking views. Final Thoughts: - Something to do for everyone in the family! Wailea beach is very large with nice water. You can snorkel over the rocks right off the end of the beach (near Four Seasons) with plenty of fish and sea turtles. - The pools and hotel grounds provide tons of entertainment. There are 8 pools on the property with many of them connected by lazy river and slides. Make sure to not miss the water elevator and newly remodeled extreme slides.

If your on the island of Maui and really want to relax you need to spend at least a few hours at the spa. The hot tubs, mineral baths and waterfall with a massage is always a treat! Highly recommend this to anyone.

We stayed for 5 nights and it was good. When we checked it we got “leied”. It is a beautiful hotel. The Beach in front has nice soft sand and a great view at sunset. We saw A couple of luaus by walking the grounds and to another hotel close by. Full view of the performers without the luau food. The spa was amazing though. Spent a couple hours in the afternoon and that was worth the money and time. Valet is $30/night and loved that 2 water bottles are proved every time I picked up my car. Resort fee is another $30/night. Breakfasts at the restaurant were good. Bar was average and restaurant was okay, separate reviews. We requested a microwave in our room and that was free of charge. Now to the annoying part. I don’t love the idea of getting a daily bracelet to access the pool. I understand that all beaches are public area in all of HI Islands and people can easily walk on to any hotels along the beach. But the DAILY bracelet is just being obnoxious. The first couple days some slides wear broken and the pools were not heated due to the repairs of the slides. Slides closes at 5 pm so we usually did not get back in time to use it anyway. I rather stay at Marriott or another beach front place to avoid this small bracelet hassle. We have been to Maui a few times. It has too much natural beauty for use to spend much time the grounds of this man made beautiful hotel. If you plan to spend a lot of the time, Uber/lyft around. Much cheaper than car rental with parking. No self parking option.
