My family has stayed at the Kea Lani 5 times over the last 3 years and we love it! We have 2 young children and the suites (it's an all-suite hotel) are perfect for a family. The bathrooms are huge with a huge tub. I recommend to pick up some food & drinks from Safeway and store it in your mini-fridge. As with every resort in Wailea, the food at the hotel is crazily overpriced, however the hotel has a sandwich/coffee shop that has some good sandwiches for relatively good prices.
*Tip to parents with young children: The bar at the upper pool serves free kids meals at lunch for children under 5 (it may be 4, can't remember the exact age). They don't advertise this too much, but ask the bartender to make sure.
I've never seen the pools overrun with people like at Grand Wailea. Every once in a while you'll get an obnoxious kid, that's why there's an adult pool. The beach is smaller, but less crowded than some of the others in Wailea.
It's free to sign up for the President's club before you go. There are alot of perks including free wireless internet, use of a loaner car, free golf club rental, free use of adidas athletic wear, among other perks.
Overall, in my opinion the Kea Lani is the best value in Wailea. If you want to pay an extra $200/night for someone to spray Evian on you and get free popsicles, then feel free to go to the Four Seasons. But I would rather have the space to spread out and really enjoy my vacation.
