U.S. News Review

The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa stands as tribute to pre-megaresort Maui. But this Marriott isn't some faded antique: A multi-million dollar renovation in 2006 dressed the guest rooms with breezy blue decor and wicker furniture; accommodations also sport private balconies, flat-screen TVs and Marriott's signature Revive linens. (If you don't mind paying extra, previous guests suggest splurging on an oceanfront room — some travelers say it's worth the extra coin for the sunset views.) Still, some travelers say that another renovation wouldn't hurt, mentioning that the ambiance is starting to feel a little tired. However, that's no reason to avoid this resort, which overlooks Wailea Beach. Recent guests are full of praise for the friendly service staff and the on-site infinity pool, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Although the Wailea Beach Marriott houses a spa, travelers recommend taking advantage of the pampering facilities found at other nearby resorts, saying that the treatments here aren't worth the high price tags. Because of its family ties, the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa participates in the Marriott Rewards loyalty program.

Critic Reviews


“Situated on a rock between two beaches, the 22-acre, 546-room Wailea Marriott has panoramic ocean views and a serene vibe missing from some of the more crowded, neighboring resorts.”


“Built before current construction laws, the Marriott's rooms sit much closer to the crashing surf than at most resorts and a stay here promises luxurious amenities, spacious accommodations, and golf and tennis priveleges nearby.”


“Eight buildings, all low-rise except for an eight-story tower, unfold along 22 luxurious acres of lawns and gardens punctuated by coconut palms and an exquisite infinity pool—you’ll want to spend your entire vacation beneath the cabanas here.”
Award: Frommer's Highly Recommended

Travel + Leisure

“All the classic resort amenities, plus koi ponds, old-growth banyan trees, and other authentic Hawaiian details are par of this mahogany-and-rattan chic property on Maui's ruggedly beautiful south shore.”
