    The Taj Mahal of resort hotels on Maui

    This was a fabulous place to stay. We stayed there with a group of friends. Everyone had a great time. The pools are phenomenal and the beach is really good for SUP and body surfing. The beaches have full amenities with cabanas and beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. The pools are really awesome with pool bars, cabanas, massages, etc. Full service food and drink bars around all the pools. This was a very upscale hotel. Took us several days to negotiate, but it was fun and well worth it.

    While being very very pricey, it is the very best in resort properties. It’s quiet, relaxing, great food options, and the scenery and grounds were stunning. It was a full house but never seemed too crowded.

    Beautiful property, beach and pool

    Stayed here for only one night on our first night on Maui, and wish we would have stayed more. This property was picturesque and lived up to its reputation and the Waldorf-Astoria name. The valet was prompt at check in and the leis were a nice touch. As a Hilton Diamond we were upgraded to an oceanfront view (We had booked a garden view room using a free night certificate). Our request for 1pm late check out was also honored. The concierge helped us book the on property luau, and we enjoyed the pools in the time before the luau. The pool system was incredible- even as an adult the slides, lazy river and Tarzan swing rope was a blast. the beach was beautiful and snorkeling from the beach was easy- especially towards the north towards the rocks the snorkeling is great, and we saw a turtle and a huge diversity of fish. The room itself was large and and the service was good, though we would have loved to stay longer. Breakfast provided for Diamond members was delicious. All in all a beautiful property and a great stay, we only wish it was longer.

    Best Missed Flight Ever!

    We gave up our seats with the promise of another night on the island, little did we know they would set us up here! And they upgraded us! We had an amazing time and they flew us out the next night so we had all day to enjoy. We could never have afforded to stay here so it was such a great surprise.

    Such a disappointment

    Checked in today and what a disappointment it has been. We've been looking forward to our stay here for months and was very excited about everything we saw in the website and the youtube videos we watched. We made a decision to book here because of how beautifully it is presented in its website: 9 pools, 7 slides, etc. What a let down. It's not at all what it's hyped up to be. The website is so misleading. Perhaps the videos and photos were taken some 20+ years ago! They put us in a room where the paint is peeling off the ceiling and the walls! The safe does not work, the walls/trims are dirty, the tub faucet rusty, the furniture old....I could go on and on. For the price I paid ($3000 for 4 nights), I expected something nice, clean and a bit modern. We've stayed at the Palazzo in Las Vegas several times (for half the price!) and the rooms are incredible! We have yet to find the 7 slides and the 9 pools....we've walked around the whole property and have not seen 9 pools or 7 slides! We talked to the manager about the condition of the room, she offered to waive the $40 resort fee but said there is nothing more she could do! She said the building is 28 years old and it IS showing its age. She sad they are aware the hotel needs work and renovations are set to begin in 2 months. She offered to move us to another room but said she could not guarantee there won't be paint peeling/chipping off the ceilings and walls. Are you kidding me? Don't they inspect the rooms regulary to make sure that it is up to Hilton standards? Or maybe that is the problem....there is absolutely no standards. I cannot believe this is a Hilton family hotel. I have stayed at a even a Doubletree with better rooms than this! The condition of this room is what I wuld expect a Motel 6 probably looks like. I mean really, can't you have maintenance scrape the chipping/peeling paint, slap a fresh coat on before allowing a guest to stay in it???? The only good thing about this hotel so far is the spectacular sunset....which I believe you will see anywhere in the island. So for those considering to book at the Grand Wailea, look elsewhere. The Four Seasons is just next door for the same price and it definitely is 100% better than this. I wish I had booked at the Four Seasons. Grand Wailea is not worth the price unless you are getting it for $149/night and I am being generous when I say it is even worth that.
