From the moment we arrived the check in was awesome and true Hawaiian tradition, the directions was dead on, the unit was ready and made us feel like we were at home. Jen was awesome on setting and confirming my Reservations, everything that was described in the description was as we found it. Thanks Wailea Grand and Destination Resorts.

stayed in unit #26 grand champions Nov. 6-11, 2013.
First, we had dificult time finding place, as there was no signage on main road. We finally found a local who gave us directions, which were still rather complicated.
Driving in arouind 6:00 was magical, as we were greeted by a forest of singing birds, and beautiful gardens.
However, we quickly found the office was closed, and again, no instructions as to how to pick up key, or get in.
So after asking around, and another wild goose chase, we found out that we had to check in at Wailea gateway.
Again, we went to wrong one, as we found out there was two.
Geting frustrated by now, we finally picked up key ect.
Get back to condo, and key seemed not to work. It seemed the bottom was locked, and the key was only for deadlock. We were all so frustrated by then, it was dark, we were just going to sleep by pool, as everything was closed now.
I went back one more time, and realised, the door was very delicate, finally opened it. By the way, we all fought with the key the whole time, very frustrated, they sould warn you.
I'm no stranger to travel Hawaii, we go at least 3 times a year, and stay at various places. This time I took my three grown daughters, all proffessionals, so I'm sure were not the only ones who encountered these frustrations.
Otherwise, the Grand champions seemed like it would be a nice place, unit #26 is not the greatest location, as its tucked in a corner with no veiw of anything.
I would stay at the Palms in Wailea before the Champions any day.

Room Tip: skip unit #26

So this place was very clean and spacious. It needs some help in the decor department however. The grounds are gorgeous, as is the golf course view from the lanai. Location is fairly close to everything. But it's a hike down to the closest beach. If I had a kid or two, I'd definitely check this place out!

We got a good deal on livingsocial for this condo for 4 nights. We were coming for a wedding at a nearby hotel. This condo is close by the tennis club, so not on the beach. Walking to the beach is ok, but it's uphill coming back to the condo. You'll want to have a car. Each condo is individually owned so the decor differs depending which one you get. We had friends staying in a 2 bdrm, we had a 1 bdrm - unit 108. It seems like the 1 bdrm living areas were more spacious and roomy than the 2 bdrm.

Kitchen is stocked with all that you'd need. Even a rice cooker! We had a smooth check in. Our condo wasn't ready when we arrived in the morning so we left our bags at the office and came back later. They were friendly and very honest. They initially charged us too much for tax, but fixed it and emailed me the correct amount. Awesome! Furniture was a little old, but comfortable and clean. Washer/dryer worked and there was a lot of detergent. The unit also had a beach umbrella and 2 beach chairs. Our one complaint is that the wifi was not working in our unit. We called and someone came, but it was Saturday and they said they couldn't fix it until Monday! We were checking out Tuesday, so we didn't bother bugging them. Also, there's no fitness center available. :(

Overall, it was a good condo and we'd return. It is especially good if you are bringing a family that needs a bigger room and would like to cook a few meals.

We stayed here on a family trip to Maui. The place is spacious and well maintained, and backed onto the golf course. We had a 2 bedroom condo suite on the upper floor and it was very quiet. If you like quiet and seclusion, the area is perfect. I prefer being able to walk to the beach and being within walking distance of restaurants and sites, so I found it a little too secluded for my liking - we had to drive to get anywhere. I wanted to go for a run in the mornings, but the way it is set up, it is a closed community and there are no paths leading to main sidewalks so I ended up running on the road. Again, some people would actually prefer that, and it wasn't a big deal, just something to point out.

I think all the suites may differ on the inside, so this may be just particular to the suite that we were in (Unit 151). The furniture is very "hawaiian" but comfortable. There are three air conditioners, one in each of the 2 bedrooms and one in the main area. One thing to note is that there isn't much privacy... the bedroom doors have slats in them so all sound in the common area/kitchen comes in, and all sounds in the bedroom would be heard outside.

You can get two parking stalls, one which is assigned to the suite itself, and then you can park the second car in the guest parking. There is free wifi, however, we found that the router restricted which sites you could access. We even got a note from management saying that you may not have access to Canadian or European websites... which is so very odd. I wouldn't say the internet is very reliable either, it would either kick you off or slow down if more than one person was on it.

All in all, a great quiet place to stay but I will most likely choose a place in Kihei next time.

The Grand Champions Villas in Wailea is a beautiful and quiet place to stay....Unit 181 was a 1 bedroom and 2 bath unit that was beautifully decorated in island decor of greens and yellows, and was immaculate....It was fully stocked and even had beach gear, and a cooler in the patio washer and dryer closet. There were beach towels in the bedroom closet as well.

This is a corner unit on the ground floor, with a huge master bedroom as well as 2 large new sleeper sofas in the great room. It was quiet with a garden view and close to the parking area.

Note that you will want a rental car on Maui....as there are numerous beaches, shopping areas, and snorkel sites to explore. Also, with the washer and dryer, we have found that packing is a snap....just take a couple of swimsuits, a couple of outfits, and voila...you are set for up to 2 weeks...

The owners were extremely helpful and even called us the first day we were there to be sure everything was satisfactory. We were there during a heat wave, and still only needed the bedroom A/C unit one night...The condo received a nice breeze during the evening hours....but one should be aware there is no A/C unit in the great room, if that is an issue....

We will not hesitate to book this unit in the future.....You cannot go wrong in general with the Wailea Grand Champions Villas and this place just really showed pride of ownership and concern for the holiday renters' needs.

Room Tip: Note, the second floor units are entered via an external staircase....

Currently staying in a lovely villa on the golf course. Very spacious and a lovely view of the golf course and across to the ocean. Glad we booked this as nice to have the room to spread out. Would recommend this villa to all my friends. Nice touch, flowers everywhere when we arrived, very pretty and homely.
