Ho'olei at Grand Wailea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2014

I love hotels, but sometimes it's nice to have more living space on vacation. My wife and I along with two other couples stayed here and it could not have been better. We stocked up at Costco and ate like kings at a paupers price. During the day we enjoyed the pool at The Grand Wailea and then came back to relax and enjoy the view from our lanai. It was during whale season, so we saw dozens of whales breach. Amazing. Sharing 3000 square feet in a home environment was a perfect way to unwind. The staff was extremely engaged and attentive.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues, some villas have an elevator.

We were torn about the access to water slides and youth activities for our kids. Well guess what the ho'olei right across the street has both serenity and access to the madness of the water slides.
But be careful some of these rentals do not have free access to the grand wailea so ask!
On the days we wanted peace and quiet we would stay at the local ho'olei pool and the days we wanted to yell and scream we would go across the street to the grand wailea.

Booked through LivingSocial and used for a long weekend away with the girls. To say we were blown away with our unit would be an understatement. It was finely appointed with plush furnishings and nice linens. The pool and hot tub were lovely, as was the sauna and locker room. Last but not least, the staff were kind and accommodating.

What can I say that hasn't been said. This complex is incredible! There was nothing we found lacking in our 9 day stay. We traveled with our four children ages 19 to 21 over New Years. It was spacious, modern, comfortable, clean and a great location above the pool.Our unit was 81-5 rented from VRBO. We had top of the line appliances, (lots of wine glasses) and arrived to a spotless unit. The beds were so comfortable, we really were in paradise. Every morning my husband and I would enjoy a coffee on the lanai and then go for a walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Maui. We took a lot of day trips with the kids and hit a lot of different beaches! The gym is small but clean and had enough machines you don't have to wait. The pictures don't even do this place justice. We really enjoyed then kitchen, lanai living room set up. The pool area was fantastic and we enjoyed outstanding massages. Robin Williams was at our pool and staying at the complex too which was kind of cool! 9 days wasn't long enough we weren't ready to go home and we definitely plan on returning! As a side note I left a small jewellery bag there with Tiffany earrings, necklaces and two expensive watches and was quite distressed when I realized I had left it behind when I arrived home. Maui Rental Group Fed Ex-ed it to me here in Canada with everything intact. Very professional and reputable. We had an fabulous vacation and this unit was definitely the icing on the cake!

This was our third Christmas at Ho'olei and we can't say enough great things. Staff went out of their way to help from everything from dinner reservations to child care. We did brunch at the Grand and it was worth every penny - each year the selection changes but is always top shelf. Recommend Spagos and Duo for tasty dining and great service.

We love the condos at Ho'olei and the Grand Wailea Hotel, but we felt the selection of food and the quality has really gone downhill in the last year and the selections are not healthy choices at all. To begin, our amenity basket left in the condo was a very nice gesture, but filled with fatty and sugary snacks. A box of dark chocolate covered macs is nice, but it would also be nice to have some fresh pineapple, mango, etc. instead of chips, nuts, candy and other unhealthy items. The food at the hotel in the more casual restaurants and around the pool was not great. The choices were not very healthy and the food sometimes arrived soggy and inedible. The food offered the children at Camp Grande was - as my granddaughter described it - gross - fried and unhealthy. Not all kids eat unhealthy fried food and that's all that is offered them on these menus. With childhood obesity so bad, more parents are trying to teach their children to make healthy choices. Vacation is not a time to let go of those lessons and these poor kids got no healthy choices around the pool, pool restaurants or at the Camp. We were very disappointed. We did not care for the lunches we had to eat when we spent the day at the pool and for such high prices, the food selection and quality should have been better. So, if the Food and Beverage Manager - Craig Kahila - at the hotel would do some work on these menus and the quality of the food, we'd be much happier when we return next year. The neighboring hotels have much better restaurants also. Other than that, we loved the entire trip and every minute of it and the service and very nice people at the condos and hotel!!
