Wailea Beach Resort - Marriott Maui

Maui, Hawaii

The hotel

This recently renovated hotel sits directly on a wide stretch of beach in the quiet, pretty resort of Wailea and is ideal for both families and couples. Kids will get a kick out of their own pool with its two water slides, while adults can kick back and sunbathe by their own pool, or relax in the hot tub. There's a Mandara Spa with a range of pampering treatments, or you can explore the surrounding countryside on foot along several hiking and nature trails. Enjoy a new signature restaurant for all-day dining, including a wonderful breakfast buffet and an informal poolside restaurant featuring nightly Hawaiian entertainment. The hotel is within easy walking distance of The Shops at Wailea - an upscale shopping mall. There are three golf courses nearby and countless activities like horse riding, scuba-diving and sailing, which means you'll never be short of things to do.

We stayed at this hotel in December over New Year's with our daughters ages 10 and 13. We loved this hotel and will return for sure! There were so many activities and amenities that the hotel offered for families, it was amazing! The view from the hotel was amazing! The water slides and kids amenities were super fun and the ambiance of the hotel was fun yet peaceful. Though its kid friendly, by no means were there kids screaming and crying or over-running the property. Pros.

We had a great week as a family and would definitely come back. Pros: Nice, clean rooms Very friendly staff Beautiful, well kept grounds Beach attendant was very helpful Nice snorkeling Great fish tacos at the Whale's Tale food shack Close proximity to shopping plaza to walk around, buy basic groceries, take out food etc. Cons: Need to walk a bit to get the accessible part of the beach (not a big deal) "Free scuba class" in the pool was disappointing. Instructor seemed annoyed that we didn't want to sign up in advance for going on a dive (that you pay for). Made us wait half the time while she gave a full pool lesson only to the people who had already paid. Breakfast options were limited. Either Starbucks (which had long lines but moved quickly) or the super pricey buffet. We had water leaking into our bathroom from the bathroom above on multiple occasions. Staff was always good about coming and looking into it but shouldn't really be happening on multiple days. Read less

Enjoyed a 5 night stay as part of my first visit to Hawaii. The resort was very well maintained and enjoyable. All staff members around the property were incredibly friendly and upbeat. I am a Bonvoy Titanium member and submitted SNA, but was not upgraded from the standard room. The resort was sold out on the night I arrived and understood that the likelihood of an upgrade was minute. We were given a room in one of the buildings directly off the lobby, which was close to the mall/cars, but a bit of a walk to the pools and a short hike to the beaches. This was fine as we spent 3 days off property and it made getting to the car for sunrise snorkeling and the Haleakala sunrise a little easier. We ate at the starbucks a couple of times for breakfast and received a medium drink, fruit and pastry due to my Titanium status. The line got long at times, but it moved quickly and the staff was very kind. The breakfast is a little paltry, but worked out better for us in this situation than a sit down breakfast in the restaurant, so no real complaints. We also ate lunch poolside a couple of days. The food was decent and while it was expensive, it was not obscene for a beach front resort. All of the staff by the pool were incredibly friendly and gracious as well. The beach situation is a little chaotic due to the number of resorts and some unsavory chair saving. All-in-all it was frustrating, but manageable and we were never in a situation where this caused us any real grief. It would be great if the resort/attendant would police the chair saving a little more actively, but I understand that is an incredibly awkward and undesirable situation and think the situation is better solved by guests following the rules. The snorkeling right off of the beach was actually very good as were were able to see a sea turtle and a number of the common fish varieties. Read less

Closeto Wailea ships and others foods. Not directly on beach, but a short walk, good relaxing area. Good boardwalk along all Wailea beach area. Marriots has changed its reward system, so check as you may not receive extra benifits (upgrades etc.) All in all it is a great place to stay with good service. Read less

This was our second time at the Wailea Beach Resort and the adventure pool was new to us this time. The kids loved it and spent quite a few hours! The rooms are comfy and I'm a big fan of the beds in Marriott hotels - so comfy! I think our favorite place at the resort is right near the check in desk though - the koi pond and the swing chair. Its just so pretty over there with the big trees and my kids would have spent all day going back and forth from the swing to looking at the koi. They even got to help feed them when we happened to be there at the right time. Our last trip to Maui was actually during a strange cool spell so this was our first time actually going in the water near the resort. The waves were pretty rough, though they seemed calmer at different times of the day. My girls were not used to waves at all and have always been big chickens about them, but they finally learned the fun of body surfing on this trip and should be comfortable on any beach now! You definitely have to be careful when the waves are big though - we all got tossed down and hurt at least once! Read less
